Z and D don't have it in them anymore to be the center peices of a Stanley cup team. Imagine them playing big minutes every night in a greuling series. They go ghost for 15 game stretches in the regular season. Only way they win another cup is they fall back to a secondary role

 

Isn't that the GM's job to realize that a 37 and 35 year old shouldn't be the centerpieces anymore?

No. I don't trust Holland to get it right and he's a rental no less.

I like Blashill overall. He is somewhat constricted by the roster Holland has given him, but one thing he can control is player usage and he has disappointed majorly in that regard.

Bill Roose Reporting:

 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Abdelkader

Helm - Richards - Larkin

Tatar - Athanasiou - Nyquist

Glendening - Sheahan - Jurco

 

Those lines stink. That's Blashill's definition of trying something new? Even Larkin won't be able to make Richards and Helm look like NHL players.

I have a dream...of a roster without Glendening or Anderson. Its rough knowing I'll inevitably be disappointed.

Nyq-Z-Abby
Lark-Dats-Tatar
Richards-Sheahan-Pulk
Jurco-Helm-AA

 

Couldn't agree more. The PK is bottom ten in the league, given up four PP goals in two games. 29 other teams didn't want Andersson, Glendening is awful and somehow the Wings couldn't survive without one or both of them? It is nonsense to defend their spots being cemented solely because of their PK "ability." There are plenty of guys in the lineup you proposed that could effectively kill penalties. 

 

Your team can't score goals and you keep Joakim Andersson dressed over the guy that led the AHL in goals last season. Blashill's usage of his forwards is horrendous.
