Filpulla for Yandle??

8

HockeyInsiderr is back at it again saying that the Wings have a deal on the table for Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle that involves Filpulla. I don't believe a word that this guy says however what do you guys think about trading Filpulla for Yandle straight up?

Detroit Sports Survey

28

Mike from The Detroit Hustle had an idea for a Detroit Sports Survey. Here's the explanation in his own words: "I’ve been over this before, but the idea to host a Detroit Sports Survey stemmed from the void Claude Lemieux left in my heart. There was no one I, and more importantly Detroit, hated more than Lemieux in the late 90s and early 2000s. Since he faded into oblivion, I’ve longed for the city to rally together and hate one person with so much vigor. The problem: I didn’t know who that person could be. So I got the idea to ask people. That led to more things I realized wanted to know about Detroit sports and, eventually, the survey was born. Others gracious people on the internet either thought it was a good idea or felt bad for me and agreed to help. I came up with more questions, asked you guys for some more, and ended with a survey that got very specific about each Detroit team and was so long no I didn’t think anybody would finish it. When I realized this thing was actually going to happen, I began to whittle down the questions and decided that in this first attempt, if anything, I would err on the side of simplicity." Head over and take the survey. When we have results, we'll follow up with the data. Thanks.

Ex Avs Tough Guy Talks About Bertuzzi Incident

6

"...I watched that tape about a hundred times, and just the way Todd hit him, and he actually grabbed him to soften his blow when he went down..." Definitely a good read. This guy wasn't on the Avs at this point but played with those surrounding the incident in the following years. The way he breaks down the whole thing is pretty well spoken from a hockey tough guy's perspective.
