My question is: what do you think about Detroit, honestly.

Every year they are predicted to fall from grace and yet, they never do.

Last year we were close in the standings up until the point that we had to play each other. They beat us, jumped to number 1 in the Central and we were never able to catch them.

Now we are tied for first and will battle it out for the first time on Friday.

Are we finally better than they are?

We are a lot closer to them than last year, this I am confident of. I think last year we were a bad match with Detroit because we were penalty prone and their power play was dominant. This year, their PP is down and our penalties aren't as frequent.

While I think they aren't much worse than last year, I think our team, overall, is a full step better. Detroit was clearly better than us last year. This year, that's just not the case, in my opinion.

I think overall we have more depth. They have the best player with Lidstrom.

Canucks pull the upset against the Stars in regulation ...

And The Ducks dive like vaginas & steal two points when they should have got 1 ... my god the refs were awful in that game

Oilers put up zero shots in the first, and zero goals overall.

BJ's just became a scarier team...

...by finally canning Gallant. Just think of what a threat they'd be if they got their heads together and booted Maclean, too.

It used to be that teams would fire their coach after we beat them. Now they're firing them before we play them so they can have a bit more motivation to beat us.

Luckily, the BJs are still using their assistant coach as an "interim" head coach. With their coaching staff still in all of this flux, we should be able to take at least 2 out of 3 games with relative ease... (if we lose more than 1, I will eat my words)

too bad we didnt have a good excuse for stinking up The Joe. I now understand the plight of the Oilers a little better at least.






So, are we going to add insult to injury in Cbus, or do we become the first victims of the new look Jackets? What are your early feelings?

There is a culture of Country Club Fun up there in Cbus, and I don't see it changing until Doug MacLean is canned

Liles knee on Smyth

Greene on Mike Johnson

Which hit was worse? ... Liles on Smyth OR Greene on Johnson?

Can't decide. Liles isn't known for those types of things, but he clearly sticks the knee out to hit Smyth. Greene comes flying in and lands the knee on the guy....

Both are despicable plays to be honest.

Colorado Avalanche: Defenceman John-Michael Liles will not be suspended for his knee on Edmonton forward Ryan Smyth on Monday. - TSN

I guess the league isn't going to suspend anyone for throwing knees unless it connect with Crosby, Ovey or Staal ?

yep, Luongo let in a softie that ended up being the game winner.

It was a bit tricky though, his dman screened the shot.

Wow, I'm watching the Kings/Coyotes game and the announcers just threw Avery under the bus. They replayed a goal by Yanic where Avery was just gliding back and let Yanic skate right past him for the easy backside tip in. I wish Pete and Terry would do that sometimes, actually tell the people who screwed up and where the play broke down.

Anyone else a little disturbed by Detroit's extending of Kronwall's contract? $3 million a year for him makes Hamhuis worth what now, $5 million a year? This is a huge risk for them, but what does that value do to the young defenseman on the verge of RFA status?

I have a feeling this is going to have a cascading effect that leads to the next wave of RFA defenseman getting big money, L-T deals. And that means that when Hammer, Suter, Weber, etc. all come up for their RFA deals (looking more specifically at Suter/Weber), they are going to be expecting a lot of money.

My hope is that when the next round of young RFA defensemen comes around, more sensible deals are signed and a nice template is set. My fear is that Kronwall's risky contract will become the expectations of the young RFA defensemen. And that we'll have to sign Weber and Suter to similar deals. God forbid more because when their contracts expire, they'll have proven a lot more than Kronwall.
