Was a bit hoping for some added defense but looks like we'll stay quiet once again this year. Ah well.

if the right deal comes up, Holland will make it. I just don't see them doing any better this year in the playoffs over last. The defense sucks (still.) Oh well, hold on tight and hope for something good!

Well, giving up 3-4 goals a game is not going to cut it in the playoffs. Holland needs to make a move.

Holland doesn't need to do anything. Seems regular season complacency has set it. They'l flip the switch come playoffs. Obviously they could use some help on the back end, but it's not a pressing matter. Something needs to be done about Jimmy and his play this season, but he's our goalie going into the playoffs and that ain't changing unless Ozzie steals it form him. People act surprised when w don't make moves, but I'll take our two SCF in three years and top 4 record this season as meaning Holland knows what he is doing.

Why would we do anything?

We've won the last 3 Cups in a row. No reason to change what isn't broken in the playoffs.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Our team is much improved over last year's, and the year before that we were in the SCF. It's not like The Wings have completely failed in many playoffs in a row. Even last year they could have won against San Jose if some pucks bounced differently.

I would love to see that Atlanta rumor come true, but I have only like 15% faith that it could happen. Just because I don't think it would hurt the team at all.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

But you've got to stay active and not be complacent.

We don't need major shakeups, but sitting on our asses the last 3 years in a row at the deadline is a little disconcerting.

Not to mention, we have weaknesses on defense and in net.

I think that is all we can do now. Unless we want to cheat and try to use the waivers like the Hawks do and sneak players through only to make cap space I don't see how we can be active.

Unless that Atlanta deal can work out that is rumored in the tweetosphere. tm.

I agree, teams like ours tend to kill time before the playoffs, just ask Kobe and the Lakers. Once the playoffs start, we'll tighten up on D.

I must be on Mars. Which Atlanta rumour are you referring to?

I tend to agree with this. I just wonder how hungry this team really is. When they're on they're ON. When they're not they are much like they were the other night against Dallas.

There was a rumor started from Bob Duff of the Windsor news paper, and it was that there was a deal on the table for Hudler, Kindl or Ericson and a high pick for Zach Bogosian. It sounded too good to be true, and Pierre LeBrun said that Holland confirmed there was ZERO truth to it.

Too bad, I would have given way more than that up for Bogo.

Yes, because not winning the cup means you must make a trade at the deadline to do anything in the post season.

Who did the Blackhawks acquire last season at the deadline?
