They don't have a single player I'd want on the Wings, given the contract tied to the guy.

Not a single one. That's pretty amazing.
Give me Stalberg, Kulemin, Caputi, and Gunnarson.

Yeah a lot of people like to call Lucic a spotpicker and how a spotpicker is not a real tough guy.

wow y would we ever do this we get robbed easily.

I think enforcers r overrated u jus need a grinder type who will fight if necessary but who can also contribute in other ways.

Not guys like Brashear, Orr, Laraque, Shelley, etc who sit their play <7 min per game and all they can do is fight. So ur basically playin wit 11 forwards

Colton Orr makes $1m...that's ****ing INSANE.

I wouldn't take Colton Orr for free.

Oh, and BTW...Enforcers do NOT prevent injuries. Boston has enforcers. Cooke still put Savard out for the season. I could bring up plenty of other examples from the the past few seasons or from the 'golden age of enforcers' aka the 80s.

Enforcers exact 'payback' which is usually simply fighting the other team's enforcer, because enforcers rarely ever play and the chances they are on the ice when the other team's top players are is unlikely. They might be on the ice against a guy like Cooke, but in a 30-second shift do they even get a chance to challenge the guy to a fight?

Enforcers might make fans feel better, but it sure as hell won't make a difference in who gets injured. Compare injuries this year and last year to the Wings with May, Downey, Norton to previous years with no enforcer. Which teams have been more injured? I'll wait until you see the facts, don't worry. It's ok. You're forgiven.

Enforcers might make a guy think twice before throwing a cheap shot, but it wouldn't have done anything about a lot of the injuries we had this year.

I think if anything, Detroit wants a pest before an enforcer, other teams can keep their off-setting 5 minute penalties, but if we are talking about a player who can secure Detroit a powerplay I become interested.
