Iginla is 35 years old and a shadow of his former self.  He will help the Pens because he will be playing with Crosby and Malkin.  Chelios was acquired in 1999 and ended up being a very key part of the Wings Cup win in 2002.  He was runner up to Lidstrom for the Norris Trophy that season.    The Wings are NOT a Cup favourite with Iginla in the line-up.   The main need is still for a top pair dman.  Until this need is filled, the Wings are an average hockey team capable of making the playoffs but not being good enough to advance very far.

A shadow of his former self Has more points than any Wings' winger and would be second on the Wings in hits this year despite having played fewer games than the Wings and he would be the toughest player we have.
THe Wings' biggest need is a power forward. They don't have one. They get pushed around and to the perimeter and Iggy would solve that issue.
He is going to finish the season with more goals than anybody on the Wings.

Really?  The Wings lose Lidstrom, Rafalski and Stuart in one calendar year and their biggest need is a power forward?  :lol:

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

It has been even when we had those guys
Kronwall is one of the 10 best d-men
Now that they are getting an opportunity Ericsson and Kindl are proving to be good top 4 d-men and are still developing mostly because up until now they haven't had much opportunity esp. Kindl. 
Smith is developing into a good top pair d-men and needs time in important situations for that development, it is unfortunate he missed time with injury.
Quincey has proven to be a capable top-pair d-man in this league and other than the first few games has been really good for us this year.
Lashoff has also proven to be a decent NHL d-man who needs time to get better

White is a capable NHL d-man
When healthy (rarely) Cola is a capable NHL d-man

Yea, the Pens have won 3 in the last 20 years while the Wings have won 4.  The Pens also tanked for 4 straight losing seasons and drafting Crosby and Malkin as a result.  Meanwhile, the Wings have made the playoffs all those years.

 

Wanting to win the cup and actually winning it are two different things.  We shall see if this gamble pays off.

 

This is a bit of a nitpick, but the Pens have only won two in that time period.

 

Whatever the case may be, I'm excited to see what happens in the playoffs.

I was talking about the future.

 

I'm afraid we're going to sound like Canadiens fans soon, talking about all we accomplished in the past.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.
