Is there a player more underrated than Blake Wheeler?
I think he's rated pretty fairly, a quality top line wing/center
This is his first season of him being at a point per game pace or higher in his career. I don't believe that is enough to change how everybody should view him as a player.
I think he very rarely gets talked about. He has the 5th most points in the NHL over the last 3 seasons.
We better prepare for this possibility. It is not at all unlikely
i think nill is better than average GM but his overall track record in dallas isn't that impressive that it should save his job.
I don't mind Nill by himself, but I do not want him to just pack everyone up that went with him and re-install them back in Detroit. That's my big negative with Nill coming back, we'd probably end up with a reboot of the management staff we had five or six years ago.
Brendan Smith broke his hand fighting a teammate in the locker room
hahaha that's tremendous.
A buyout is honestly possible, that's crazy.
Yzerman took a bunch of our guys too. Not nearly as impressed with what Nill took.
I am not totally against Nill. I prefer some other names for sure.
If they do bring back Nill, I will be watching who he surrounds himself with closely.
Brendan Smith to the Red Wings on July 1.
Don't you put that evil on me Redder Winger!
Yeah, Nill and Yzerman going elsewhere and raiding the cupboards as they left is what made Holland push the league for some sort of compensation for losing front office guys, wasn't it? If Nill comes back, I have to believe McDonnell comes with him (where else is he going?). At what point are we happier just keeping Holland?
truly one of the greatest goals of our time
Yeah, just read that. It said "at practice" as in fighting on the ice, but still what a ****ing moron
Lol yeah quite possibly the strangest goal I've ever seen scored. Too bad the Yotes wasted all that good luck and didn't gain on us in the standings.
He (Blake Wheeler) does so much more than points, totally the heart and soul of that team and one of the best leaders in the league. Rookie makes a bone-headed play costing his team a goal or a win - Wheeler's always next to him on the bench, arm around him talking him back up; I could go on and on with rave examples of this guy's leadership and I'd not even have to use that "I" word to do it. He is absolutely one of my favorite non-Red Wings in the league. I agree with Frk it, he's underrated for many reasons, not just his scoring or his skating.
He always has been short on brains.
barring injuries, McDavid has the next 5+ Art Rosses locked up. This kid is insane. Even on an off year for the oilers he's still at the top of the league in points.
Too bad he'll be golfing in a couple of weeks
The "kid" is a monster. You simply can't game plan around him. Assuming the Oilers get better than league average goal tending next season, they are gonna back on track for another deep playoff run.
40 goals for William Karlsson
He had 6 goals last year
Strange things happen with the Coyotes. This reminds me of the Mike Smith goal where it fell into his pants.
It looks like Babcock and the Leafs might get Tampa in the first round. Ouch.
With the way the Lightning have been playing, maybe that's not such a bad thing for the leafs
I feel like Boston is the best team in the league. They're so injured right now and they're still winning a ton.
The playoff format is so bad.
