What a difference a year makes.  

 

Last year when we lost in the playoffs, there was a lot of hope for the future.  The young guys were awesome, Howard had his best season and playoffs as a Wing, and it looked like the old garbage would be gone.

 

One year later, the young guys have disappeared in the playoffs (especially Nyquil), Howard had his worst season as  Wing, and all the old trash that we thought would be gone last season is still here.

 

I can't think of one positive to come out of these playoffs.   

 

The one positive is we had to face the best team in the league in the first round with a hobbled Z and a half-interested Datsyuk and no Ericsson and lots of Quincey and lots of Kindl-Lashoff and Howard having the worst season of his NHL career and a bunch of kids. But, even with those things going against us, we'd probably beat the Penguins, who are the second best team in the East.

 

Trim the fat this summer, make good decisions, wrap the players in bubble wrap, and we'll be ok.

Let's just skip to handshakes. Brutal series. Worse than Nashville two years ago. 

Mercifully that will happen soon enough. In the mean time, let's all take a moment to say thank you Mr. Holland for building such an amazing team these past few years. Your genius and foresight amaze me. Your combination of crafty trades and signings of seasoned veterans plus your willingness to aggressively cultivate young skilled players is the reason we are here. Most of all, thank you for preparing so many years in advance for the retirement of #5. Without your wizard like vision of the future, we would be left today with a hollow D incapable of anchoring the Wings puck possession game. (note the EXTREME sarcasm).

Everyone needs to be honest with themselves. Holland is going to re-sign Sammy, Cleary, Alfie, Bert, and Quincey. Next year Dekeyser will be playing in the minors for no reason and Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, and Jurco will be traded. They will be replaced with Ray Whitney, Jaromir Jagr, Teemu Selanne, and Hal Gill. 

 

Wouldn't mind Jagr.  He puts more effort than some of our roster.

Are you guys happy the streak was kept alive, or is just losing a better draft pick at this point?

 

Id rather then pick later. They get better results. Pick to early and you get a bust like Kindl.

Haha true. I was just trying to think of the oldest veterans that realistically probably would be signed here.

You forgot Brooks Orpik

 

I'd take Brooks Orpik over any d-man on this team not named Kronwall and Ericsson.

I don't think we would.  Columbus isn't just doing good because Fleury sucks.  They work hard and are a better team than us.  Columbus is hard to play against.  The Wings are not.    

We'd lose to the Pens with our turnover problems and inability to stop a PK from scoring.  They'd get more powerplays than Boston too.    


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

Jagr has no character but I agree he is 40 + so Holland might take a hard look at thim

The big question is can you really trust Kenny to do this with his track record the last 4 years?

I wonder if DeKeyser will actually shake Lucic's hand after it's over?

Can Glendening elevate the puck? Or does Babs love him because he loses every single faceoff with ease?

Jagr's whole thing is his character. If anything, it's why we wouldn't sign him.

Half-interested Datsyuk?

Please.

The guy is playing through an injury and still has 3 goals in 5 games.

Jagr may be too smart to sign here.  But I would in all reality take him over the younger-old guys we have.  He could certainly teach our kids more than Sammy.
