I guess last years predictions were we were a border line playoff team?

 

I suppose adding "Al" and Weiss help? Maybe. Injuries aside of course for everyone.  

 

More I think about it I still think we are a border line playoff team. 

Helm is also an addition we didn't have last year. Assuming he doesn't have yet another setback and can play this season, he's a huge part of this team.

I think we tear it up in the East. I'm very excited.

If they rack up the points and the wins like the Russian 5 did, people shouldn't complain.

It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

This is LGW, so anything short of going 82-0-0 and then a 16-0 run to the cup, coupled with a league record in fighting majors and trading Cleary for the 1st overall pick in 2014 will be an unmitigated disaster which can only be resolved by the instant dismissal of Holland and Babcock

HAHAHA, made my day. :lol:

We going to do just fine in the East, maybe even finals? Ah f*** it, I'm a Red Wings fan, it's cup!

I'm apparently more than a little slow because it never occurred to me that our top defensive pairing this past season was a Swedish duo.  

 

Shocking you could put two typical soft, non-physical Swedes together like Ericsson and Kronwall and have it work out.   :P

I heard some sportscasters speculate that they'll be Sweden's 2nd pairing in the Olympics. Seems solid.

Yep i belive they will be. Karlsson and Edler in the first pair(If Edler isn't suspended), and Kronner and Ericcson in the second pair. The only thing that could change that, is if they want to have Nick playing with his brother Staffan. 

You can compere Staffan with Ericcson, big stayathome type of guy.

I'll be severely unhappy if this new squad doesn't make the East finals.

Expectations are very high for next season.
With young defensemen like Smith Dekeyser and Lashoff blooming tremendously with the confidence of hard nosed coach Mike Babcock, I am pretty confident in their chances - though I still think they desperately need to sign a veteran defensemen who can log a lot of minutes with consistency and poise in the back.

Very excited to see Alfy Datsyuk and Zetteberg though. I hope they get on a line!!!

Thorough domination of the Maple Leafs, Habs, Flyers, Bruins, Rangers.

I expect Babs and his players to show the east how hockey is played:)
