is it that bad, that Wings fans begin praising Ericsson?


last I checked, I mean about a year ago, he was LGW's puck coughing scapegoat for all bad that goes in Wings D. does retirement of Big Nick change this?



seriously... steady defensive core will probably be of huge importance this year, so teams which have well developed core will probably fare better as the others will barely have enough time to get their D-men playing well together. I don't really expect Wings to excel in this category with so significant change. especially with so many question marks about our D coaching being already raised last season...


I hope for good but rather expect average results...

Everyone that is worried about losing Lidstrom, take solace in the fact that no other team in the league has a Lidstrom either. I personally see this shortened season as a trial for what is to come from new players and to see how much is left in other players tanks. Also, for defense, if Holland snags DeKeyser after this season, that'll add to depth with already drafted guys like Sproul, Oulette and McKee whom I believe will all be future Wings.

I like this team.

12-1 in July, 15-1 in August; depends on what street corner your bookie works on.

I don't see how the Red Wings are the 6th best team in the league based on last season and the loss of Lidstrom.


I would be hard pressed to say they are in the top six in the West alone.
