Worse. By a lot too considering Holland's moves this off-season.
Even with Pavel's retirement, I was cautiously optimistic that the Wings would play the young guys more and Blash would improve his usage from last season resulting in a better team. All of that is shot now.
I think the Wings have a legitimate shot to finish last in the division.The scary thing is next season will be the most competitive they will be over the next five years because of Holland.
