In Topic: 2012 Stanley Cup Bracket Wallpaper Now Available!

11 April 2012 - 02:41 PM

The bracket can be a little confusing. If one didn't know better, the wallpaper implies that the winner of the 1 vs. 8 series will automatically play the winner of the 2 vs. 7 series. This isn't necessarily true - the surviving teams are re-seeded for round 2. I guess I don't understand why you would even need to show the empty bracket spaces for rounds 2 and 3 in a round 1 wallpaper? It looks great, just might be confusing to somebody who doesn't know how it really works.

In Topic: Post-TDT: Red Wings stand pat, no additions

If we didn't have the cap space, I don't think I would be so disappointed, but here's what upsets me:

"Will we do something? We're going to explore," Holland told ESPN.com. "We have cap space; we structured it at the beginning of the year that way. We'd like to give our team a bit of a boost. ...

Holland made few moves in the offseason after Rafalski's retirement , because he looked forward to today. He kept that $5 million in cap space all season. And for what? By not adding any players today, the Red Wings basically sat on $5 million all season for no reason at all. It's not like we can keep that $5 million and add it to next year's cap space. We could have definitely used a rental player and given up picks for him.
