You are right, he is entitled to his opinion even if it is not the correct one.

Kinda surprised with 2, was expecting 1.

Seen worse hits get nothing, so, yeah.

But Abby followed through incorrectly, and (IRRC), as Bob said in an earlier thread, it seemed like a good hit until the end, and Abby messed up his timing/placement. No big blow to our team, Bert can replace Abby fine enough.

Abdelkader may not be the greatest (or good) but his skating has been good this year and he skates very hard. Bert looked like he was really trailing the play in his recent action. Seems like he may have a hard time keeping up with Z and D if he was inserted there in the line-up.

Although I agree Abby has turned a bit of a corner, I don't think the difference between Bert and Abby will be the difference between winning or losing the next 2 games.

With the way we struggle to score goals, yeah that's pretty safe to say.

when did we become so shallow that losing Abby for 2 games was actually somewhat harmful to our success?

I can't believe people are starting to believe Abedlkader isn't completely worthless in the top six.

Abdelkader not playing makes me more confident that the Wings can win this series. It's just too bad he didn't get a life time ban for for being terrible.

Or you are Brayden Schenn and only hit the head, that is one game I guess. How they arrive at two is just flat out wrong.

I don't agree with him being suspended (not as a big a joke as Gryba's suspension though.) but this could be a blessing in disguise potentially.

Doesn't he have 5 goals in the last 4 games versus the ducks?

A blind retarded squirrel occasionally finds a nut too. His moronic play has destroyed Datsyuk. Why Babcock keeps trotting that garbage on the ice with Datsyuk is mind boggling.

Abdelkader got nearly 25% of his total points in 1 game against Anaheim.

You think any headhunters on the Ducks were saying -- man, I'd hit Datsyuk and Zetterberg, but I'm worried about Abdelkader kicking my ass...

You don't really think that, right?

wait... I wasn't being sarcastic or anything.

I was agreeing with you and saying that with the way we have struggled to score goals it doesn't matter if abby plays or not. We have been terrible in that department regardless. That was my intention.

Would definitely MUCH rather have abdelkader in the top 6 than cleary in the top 6. Though that's not saying a whole lot. And the fact that we have both in the top 6 is LOL-worthy.

The Red Wings will miss Abdelkader's physical play, net-front presence, puck-retrieval and forechecking ability and penalty killing. He also provided some offense (10 goals this season, including nine in his final 20 games) and is hard to play against, a quality this team lacks.

He leaves a void on the No. 1 line with Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg

I nearly had a stroke reading that article.

Oh my bad. Was half reading half watching GoT. Still, we need all the depth we can get, and that is weird that I, and some others, consider Abby to be quite serviceable depth at this point. Where did all of our talent go?

The problem is that we're not going to see a Tatar or Nyquist bumped up to play with Pav, we're more likely to see Cleary which makes things from bad to worse.

Both are complete garbage. I will take one less trash bag on the ice.

Both Cleary and Gator don't belong in the NHL. Cleary belongs in a retirement home and Gator belongs in the AHL.

Gator is a mediocre 4th line player and a terrible top six player.

Atrocious, miserable, horrendous, worthless.

All of those words perfectly describe what Justin Abedlkader is while playing with Datsyuk.
