After watching last night, Illitch and Holland in hindsight would've upped their offer to Ryan Suter to 20 years and $200 million last June.

Detroit is, most assuredly, not the place to be anymore while the Blues are the envy of the league.

Good times.

No articles leap to mind. Just brought up the way they looked last year because I watched a bunch of those games and they were noticably mediocre without him.

You're welcome, I added the Stewart 1st goal, there was so much scoring and with all the rust from the lockout I'm pedaling to catch up.

Also gonna get the 3 stars video up with TERRORsenko. What a night Blues fans.

I really don't think Polak could handle TooToo, who is a dirty lil **** but he is a pretty good fighter as well. Stewart would be the only other match on the Blues for him. imho

Polak might actually be our best fighter. He doesn't fight much, but he wins decisively every time he does it seems like.

If the Polak door is opened I'm not sure there's many who could stand up to such wrath. I find it hard to believe a piece of **** like Tootoo could handle it.

Random thoughts:

1. Berglund was a monster on the backcheck, and an even fiercer one protecting the puck/around the net. He did a lot of little things last night that caused opportunities that translated to chances/goals.

2. Sign Sobotka to an extension now. He was filthy last night...I would attribute a double digit percentage of the Red Wings frustration to him alone. Maybe I'm bias, but he's one of the best I've seen at winning zones.

3. Russell is a player that plays well beyond his perceived capability. He draws a lot of attention with his skating ability and has the vision to make the pass to the soft area he created. He's obviously no petro, but his ability to rise over pressure is a skill that we would sorely miss.

4. The pass Petro made was arguably not the most impressive thing he did last night. He looks comfortable winning battles against 3 opposition players by his lonesome. It cannot be overstated how special of a player he is.

The Wings are such a soft team, the Blues weren't nearly as physical as usual.

Why was Schwartz' ice time so low? I thought he was playing on the 3rd line

No powerplay time. I also recall a time where McDonald couldn't get off the ice and THEN there was an icing.

They cannot resign Sobotka until next season.

Petro is to us what Lidstrom was to the Wings. He's a freaking prodigy and it's a privilege to watch him play, he's that good. Blues will be able to win and challenge for Cups because of him, far and away the most important reason.

Everyone on the ice looked like they looked at what they needed to work on and improved their game. I was very impressed by everyone. Sobotka and Nichol were just relentless on the PK and were able to hold the puck in the Red Wings zone for what seemed like was most of the PK.

Pietrangelo is ****ing amazing and definitely our absolute greatest defenseman. There's no arguing that. Still not sure I'd put him on the level of Lidstrom quite yet, though he's pretty close. He showed his vulnerability against the Kings in the last playoff series I think. In any case we're so much less without him. So long as he and everyone else remains relatively healthy, we have a really good shot at winning the cup finally.

The only vulnerability he had against the Kings was getting shoved head first into the boards. After that he came back and played injured, and nothing can really be read into that.

Exactly.

Pietrangelo pretty much single handedly made Oshie and Berglund score with those sweet passes. He made it look so easy too.

I don't think P9s is saying he's on Lidstrom's level, just that he makes us competitive with anyone, similar to how Lids made the Wings competitive with anyone. There is actually a pretty shocking similarity between Petro and Lids' game though. They usually don't do anything that gets you out of your seat, but just play a flawless 20 minutes a night.

Carcillo pounded Polak pretty quick. I would say Polak couldn't handle Tootoo. He's quick. Polak isn't.

KQ is ****ing awful and most of us do not like him in Detroit. We want to see some of our kids brought up from GR to play, but Kenny just isn't doing it yet.

You guys definitely kicked our ***** all over the ice. I wish the Wings would start bringing in some bigger, physical guys. We keep getting manhandled and it's just not fun to watch.

On the other hand, when Hitchcock used to coach the Kalamazoo Wings back when I was young, he'd sit in the stands during warmups and watch the guys skate. I'd get his autograph almost every weekend. I'm sure I annoyed him. Glad to see he's having success in the NHL
