That sucks. I know many don't particularly like Williams but I think he's fine and I hate to see any Red Wing injured, especially such a serious one.

Maybe they'll call up Jeremy Williams? We need offence. I'd like to see Ritola called up though.

unfortunate he's hurt, but losing him from the lineup isn't a big loss. hopefully Big E can get some substantial PP time now...

Poor Williams. He was having a relatively good season and now this.

What's the usual recovery time for a fractured fibula?

He's a proven producer when given the opportunity. He really should've been there the entire time.

If only Babs didn't have that hang up with the right hand shot on the point.

For sure. But that 2nd PP unit is a trainwreck without some speed and puck control.

Filppula was really making it function better when he was in the lineup.

Seems to be 4-6 weeks, depending on severity.

Too bad he fractured his Filppula.

It looked terrible. I guess a broken leg is better than a shredded knee.

I wonder if Illitch could speak to the GM/owner of Dinamo Moscow and see if he can get Hudler's contract "nullified."

You know, a little piece of the Little Ceasar's empire or something... exclusive distribution rights in Russia.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Russian league held a grudge against the Wings for snatching up players like Fedorov, Konstantinov, Fetisov, and Kozlov. What team did Larionov start with? Probably doesnt matter, we had him too. Oh, and now we got Datsyuk. Yeah, I'm sure they might have alittle bit of repressed bitterness in them.

I think the reality is that this year is an off year for the Wings, what Devalano himself has called a rebuilding year; the Wings are not going to do well this year, and as fans we should not only come to accept but embrace a bad year.

Look at it this way; how often do the Wings get a chance at a top 10 draft pick? They seldom, if ever trade for one. This coming draft is supposed to have a fantastic group of players in the top 10, players that may one day rival Ovetchkin, Malkin or Kovalchuk. Some teams do poorly for more than a single year and are stupid enough to trade away their high draft spots to teams that don't need them in return for something worse --- I'm looking your way, Toronto. With a bad year, just one bad year we could rebuild this team on the fly into a true dynasty team; we can defeat Bettman and his system, it's just a matter of playing a skillful game of chess.

Speaking of Kovalchuk, I am hoping that the Wings use the olympics of 2010 as a means of persuading players to move to the Wings; what better possibility than Datsyuk showcasing his skills and making Kovalchuk stop and think: "Do I want to captain a team that is going nowhere, will be going nowhere soon, or go to Russia and be a nobody, or do I want to get some serious money AND have the best possible chance of winning the Stanley cup? I think Datsyuk could provide an offer that is hard to refuse - playing alongside the best setup man in the NHL.

Aside from a pure goal scorer we need a reliable goaltender; While we could always try and sign Nabokov, we could get away with signing a good goaltender like Biron all the while spending way less. We will have outstanding goaltenders coming from within our system soon enough, but Howard is most definitely not the answer, and neither is Osgood. Osgood should call it quits or get out, and Howard should be traded or released, there is no solid reason why we should harbor a goaltender that gives up cannon shots for rebounds and whose confidence evaporates after he is scored on; we've danced around the system of the new NHL and paid our dues for long enough, we are even going to suffer through a really bad season this year, starting next season we should have a team lineup that the rest of the NHL would kill for.

I'm entirely serious, the top ten offensive players in the next draft are supposed to be Godly. Heck, the player the Russians were touting as the next Malkin is slated to be around 41'st in the draft (Maxim Kitsyn) if I remember right. The only downside to the next draft would seem to be the goaltenders.

Right now we are pojected to be the 11th to draft next year, and even at 11th, were all players to be drafted at their projected places we would get Stanislav Galiev. Galiev has amazing hands, size, and at 18 years old has been ripping it up in Canada with the Saint John Sea Dogs, which are an OHL team if I'm not mistaken. He has been doing as well as he has this season with the Western style of hockey, not as some russian prospect coming out of a weak Russian team that plays a different game, and Galiev is rated at 11th. That should tell you a little something about how insane the top 10-15 are in the next draft.

I reiterate my question about whether the Wings should call up Emmerton, Axelsson, or someone else that might give them more offensive punch.

You mean someone who would still be considered a rookie trying to adjust to the NHL? Sounds fun. But then again, losing isn't very much fun.

They'll call up someone who's nice and experienced

fractured fibula is a pain in the a$ especially if its low, it can be of great in comfort in a hockey skate.., after 6 weeks he should be able to walk/ maybe jog, but I wonder how he will tolerate the skate, maybe take a few pain killers..
the good part is that the fibula isn't for supporting weight, so..

Someone who can provide some offense sounds like fun to me. Anybody.

I think the rookies I mentioned are at least as good of a bet to provide offense as the other guys (still rookies, mind you) who are older and have been in the minors longer. They don't have any salty old NHL veteran forwards to call up.

A lot of times you get a temporary shot in the arm from rookies getting their first sniff at the NHL, feeding off adrenaline and providing a spark. They're running out of warm bodies, so I say why the hell not give it a shot?

If they need to make a deadline deal, they're not going to get anything for Newbury or Jeremy Williams or Tardif, but if Emmerton or McGrath or Axelsson shows some flash, they could turn themselves into either a valuable Wing roster player or a valuable trade chip.

Holland said he's not going to call any one up, per Freep today.

Williams out minimum of 8 weeks.
