Missing the playoffs? Try Winning The Central!

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

Alright call me crazy but I see people doubting we even make the playoffs this year? Alright so lets break this down. You lose Homer and Hudler and for replacements you have Brunner Samuelsson and TooToo with Nyquist getting more of a regular role, I believe are offense will be more dynamic and more effective then last year. Defense: Everyone knows we lost Nick and we lost Stuart too, and for replacement we have a young kid in Smith who is unproven, Coliacovo who has had injury problems but when healthy has proved to be effective and are regulars White Ericcson Kronwall Quincey and Kindl. I think were putting too much emphasis on how much Nick's departure will hurt us, are defensive core definitely isn't the best but they can perform to were this team can still contend to win the division. I don't believe in the Blues hype, Chicago has goaltending issues Nashville will drop this year and Columbus is well Columbus. I'll call it right now, this team wins the Central, and the doubters will be silenced. Remember we had the best Goaltender in hockey before the injury and I see Jimmy contending for the Vezina at the end of the year and the addition of Gus will keep Jimmy rested and give us a trustworthy back-up. Puck drop is coming in 2days, predictions will be done and will see what this team is gonna bring, Lets Go Wings!

I would like to give you a round of applause, finally someone who agrees with me. I have been saying all along we will clinch a top four spot in the conference, our defense isn't that bad, all they have to do is try to actually stay healthy *sigh*

Im with you man, I trust in these guys, are defense is going to shock some people they know there going to have to step up there level of play and thats what there going to do, I also think Pavs Zetty and Brunner have potential to be the most effective line in hockey.

The margin for error for all teams is going to be razor thin in a shortened season. I wouldn't be shocked to see everything click into place for the Wings & for them to take the Central. Granted I wouldn't be shocked if the breaks went against them & they missed the playoffs entirely. As the OP mentioned, every team (short of C'bus who should just flat out suck again) is going into the shortened season with questions.

Exactly, it's really hard to predict whats going to happen so I don't see it being unrealistic thinking this team could take the division, so maybe we should just stop predictions and patiently wait for puck drop in 2 days!!!!

Stay injury free. Work hard. Those are the two biggest wild cards.

And special teams. Outside of the PP and PK we were top ten in IIRC every relevant category and top 4 or 5 in a lot of categories involving outshooting opponents, winning after both scoring first and getting scored on first, etc. But we were bottom third in power play and penalty kill. If Renney can rectify this issue we shouldn't have much of a problem.
