    I can’t ****ing wait to watch some Red Wings hockey. I’m especially excited to watch Ras, Cholowski, Hronek and hopefully Zadina at some point. I feel with the help of the kids we will exceed some of the lowest expectations.

    Ras on the point??? What in the world is going on.
    Edit: just saw the other tweet. So who takes the other point spot. Wouldn't be Bert right?

    Love seeing Cholo getting a shot at top pair right off the bat.

    And then I see DeKeyser's name with him, and I die a little bit inside. :puppy:

    Does Cholo normally play the right side?

    He's good on his backhand, just never really noticed him playing the right side in juniors.

    I highly doubt they are sustaining two point men on a power play. It’s More likely that the formation looks like:

    Bertuzzi/Ras
    Nyquist - Bert/Ras - Larkin
    Daley

    Bertuzzi-Nielsen-Rasmussen is an interesting line.

    Has Cholowski played on the right side much? I’d kind of prefer to put him on the left side.

    So glad Sulak is getting a shot. Loved his preseason.

    So, Hronek or Hicketts will play as well. This will be a fun opening game.

    Looking forward to seeing how the team sucks this year.

    Also very excited to see how the young guns do in an actual regular season game.

    Nice move having Zetterberg drop the puck.

    This is the only thing I have watched for these last few seasons. If you're watching to see the team win games and make the playoffs you're just setting yourself up for heartbreak.

    Let's see which kids step up and become part of the future.

    It's odd, though I know this team is more than likely going to finish bottom 5, I'm actually far more excited than I have been the past few years.

    Interested to see Cholowski and Sulak. Not expecting much of Ehn or Rasmussen except on special teams.

    I fear that neither of those pp lines will be able to hold the zone if they pressure the puck

    Excited to see some Vanek/Athanasiou chemistry again! Those two seem to know where each other are at all times. Too bad they suck in their own zone though.

    This was me in 2014. The season after the run to 3-1 against Chicago. I dreaded seeing the lineup with Bertuzzi, Tootoo, etc. coming back. As soon as Nyquist and Tatar and a couple others got in there, I instantly felt much better. God, Holland is lucky he built up such a rep because that 2012 FA period would have been enough to get most GMs fired. Missing on Suter wasn't the nail in the coffin. It was flat out wasting the money he didn't spend on Suter.

    3M to Samuelsson
    1.9M to Tootoo
    2.5M to Colaiacovo

    All three of these deals were ****ing awful from the moment they were signed. Hell, those were worse than even stuff like Ericsson and DeKeyser, because at least those guys gave you something at some point. These three provided nothing to Detroit. Tootoo and Cola ate the two compliance buyouts and Samuelsson would have if he wasn't immediately injured. I mean, that was something like 11.5% of the cap on players that did ****ing nothing. At least guys like DeKeyser, Ericsson, Daley, Abdelkader, etc. contribute at least somewhat to the meager success of the team. Tootoo, Cola, and Samuelsson were actively dead weight on the roster that the team was simply better off NOT playing.

    Stuff like Gustavsson is par for the course. That wasn't a bad deal.

    I am sooo happy hockey is back. This is probably the most engaged ive been with the team since lidstrom retired. There is a glimpse of hope in the future. Still need more pieces but at least we have starting blocks.

    Any news on # switches was thinking maybe Ehn changes from 70 or that Sulak takes 4.
