    I think we'll see a pretty significant improvement from this season to next. We might not make the playoffs next season, but I think we'll at least be in the conversation. This season we'll (hopefully)be a bottom three team and actually pick in the top three. Add that player to your 2021 roster, as well as a free agent or two and we'll be in great shape.
    I'm still confident that all of Rasmussen, Veleno, Zadina, Svechnikov and Seider will be significant pieces to the core of this roster. Add a Lafreniere, Byfield, Raymond, Holtz, etc. and we're back!

    LSD night at the LCA according to me:
    Chillin in my seat enjoying the music and lights from the jumbotron
    Players on the ice all swirling together
    Fans cheering and yelling vibrates my entire soul
    Have Little Caesars
    Cheese is meltier than my face
    Finish slice
    Life literally ruined because no more delicious pizza slice
    Look down at pizza box
    I only ate the first slice, THERE'S A WHOLE PIZZA LEFT
    Literally cry from relief and happiness
    Red Wings win by 8 goals
    LSD night at the LCA according to sober friend:
    Pointing cell phone at jumbotron trying to change the channel like a TV remote for the entire 1st period
    Yelling and screaming at random points in the game and during dead time upsetting everyone in our section
    Rubbing hot super slice on my face
    Throw mangled super slice on the ice like its an octopus yelling THERE'S A WHOLE PIZZA LEFT
    There isn't
    Crying from trying to eat my own now sauce covered hands
    Red Wings lose by 5 goals

    Can we at least pretend that we have a slight chance of making the playoffs at least until....December??  We're not even out of October and this looks really bad and hope already lost....this is ugly.  So, it was a great 2019-2020 season for three weeks. 
    Who is under the most pressure in the Wings organization?:  The LCA promotions team.  Can't wait to see what ridiculousness they conjure up to fill seats come February. Free iPhone night??  Celebrating the "Roarin 1920's"??  Roller Skate Night - (fans encourage to attend game wearing roller skates)??  LSD Night??  Celebrating Michigan Marine Life Night??  This will actually be the "game within the game".  This should be fun.

    "Better" would need to be defined further.

    We were the 4th worst team in the league last year.  I hate to say this as I'm usually pro "accumulate talent based on priority of needs"...but we need major help in every area.  Offense, defense, goal-scorers, shut down D, offensive D, puck movers, ....you name it and we pretty much need it.  I'd lean towards best available talent with the best contract terms for the Wings and our 3-5 year roadmap.  We could debate the bigger wants/needs for months, and maybe Stevie and the Wings brass have a better idea of what gaps to fill first, but the reality is that we need a lot on both ends of the ice.  Just my $.02

    Nice!!  The ol' "I'm not very good at my current position, but believe I could be super successful if I took a promotion to a higher position".  60% of the time, that argument works every time!

    0% chance Kronwall plays in Grand Rapids. 0.05% chance Hronek plays in Grand Rapids.
    Kronwall will either be in Detroit or retire. Hronek has played his last game in the AHL...

    Watched it (finally) last night.  Really, really good.  A lot of good insight into how tight that team was off the ice.  Loved it when Mac explained the difference between a sucker punch and getting cold cocked.  Hilarious.
    If I had one very minor "I would have liked more" from this, I would have liked to have more insight from Stevie on his perspective as the Captain and how he dealt with their style of play, speaking very little (if at all) English when they first arrived and how this effected how they communicated, how he dealt with the perception among the other teammates that "Russians were bad for NHL hockey", etc.  However, top to bottom a outstanding film.
    Yes!  I definitely got the impression that Kozlov had a major edge to him.

    My buddy just texted me:  If we could sign him for super cheap $$, do I think we should sign Phaneuf for a 1 year (2 max) to stabilize our D and provide some leadership until we're able to bolster our D via GR, draft, and trades? 
    My one word response back to his very long text was "NO"

    Maybe.  As said by Jonas I don't remember hearing anything at all publicly about this.  IMO-Hard to think that Holland could have blocked anything from the owner of the team and a guy as hands-on as Illitch.  What leverage would Holland have and why would Illitch even need his approval to do what we wanted to do?
