      Retire 91 or no?
      Detroit Red Wings
      Haliax - Posted
      @SpikeDDS   I actually think that Zetterberg's case is stronger than Datsyuk's (and by extension Fedorov's), for the simple fact that Datsyuk was never team captain. Every player who had their number retired was captain at some point, with the exception of Sawchuk, who is obviously a special case. I don't think that is a coincidence, retiring a number is not solely about skill. It is about legacy. I am a huge fan of both Zetterberg and Datsyuk, but neither have the legacy with this team to be considered for retirement when compared to the others. I do believe that #13 and #40 will be numbers that are honored for at least awhile in the same way that 91 has been, but I don't personally see the case for retiring them. I wouldn't be disappointed or upset about seeing any of those numbers in the rafters, I would just be surprised.   Now, if the Red Wings do retire #91, then I don't see the reason for not considering 40 and 13 because it kind of changes the script.

      Good idea. Capitals took Alexander Alexeyev. Will see how he will perform there.

      I watched also a full scrimmage from Sunday, both(30 min.each) half's of the game between a White and a Green teams. And would like to notice invitee's Cates(#33) 2 goals during the second half of the game and his pretty good goal in a shootout. Even goaltender was not happy how he put it into the net. It seems a very smart guy from Stillwater,MN.Wish to have him in our team. Interesting that he played together in the line with Sokolov(#74) and Khovanov (#62). Puck control was pretty good among them too. I also liked a few diagonal passes between Sokolov and Khovanov. Khovanov likes to go to the net, and worked well in front of the net, which is a good sign. During the first half of the game and during a 3-on-3 OT Khovanov played together with Lodnia(#54). I think Lodnia played well. In general, both teams had a nice speeds too,not bad at all a puck control, which I liked.

      Wild's Ownership Are they really "Committed to Winning it All"

      Bingo. Leipold hasn't been afraid to spend money, unlike the original Wild ownership. The problem is, Leipold hasn't spent the money wisely. Players he's spent money on that haven't produced: Jason Pominville (the trade for him was sheer brilliance, the extension utter stupidity), Thomas Vanek (Mike Yeo had to be convinced that he was going to be a team player, ultimately bought out), Zach Parise (has yet to play a full season and point totals have been steadily declining since he signed a 13 year/$98M contract in 2012)...

      Didn't read throug the whole thread, so forgive me if these points have already been mentioned. As far as attendance goes, they sell out the joint every night......to the tune of 106% of capacity. In that way, they are a lot like the Leafs, guaranteed to sell out, guaranteed fan support locally. However, I have to believe that managment wants to take profit to a new level....that means deep playoff runs. A deep playoff run(s) gets them to the promised land of profit.....and unlocks millions in merchandise sales. I have to believe ownership wants to unlock this door. They have not been wise with their investments, but it would be unfair to call them cheap also. I don't know anything about the Wild owner, so who knows if they really want things to be better for the fans.....but profit awaits....and that if nothing else, should be motivation to get better and win.

      To get back on the draft topic, might be interesting to keep track of the players the Wild passed on to draft Johansson. Just kind of compare what they passed on compared to how Johansson turns out.    I wouldn't go into the second round, maybe just projected first rounders that were still available: Dominik Bokk, Joseph Veleno, Adam Ginning, Bode Wilde, Alexander Alexeyev, etc.

      In my opinion, I think it was this. Look at what Lemaire accomplished in his career both on the ice and behind the bench. He didn't half-ass anything. But the Wild ownership was more concerned with the bottom line than what was occurring on the ice. So they were more than happy to put a half-assed roster together to put on the ice just to maximize profits. I think Lemaire did the best he could with the rosters he was given, but none of those teams were going to get close to the Cup. And he was not going to be given a team that might get to the Cup, because that meant the ownership had to spend money. And Naegle absolutely did not want to spend any money.
