Wings nation is now in panic mode. I really am glad that the GM and ownership aren't as reactionary as the LGW Forum members.
We all knew that the Wings weren't going to be a perennial power in the league this year. Realistically, the Wings were going to be a 5th or 6th place team in the Western Conference. With all the injuries, the Wings are going to be lucky to make the playoffs. Then you factor in there the Wings sloppy turnovers and sloppy play, and its a self fulfilling prophecy.
It's hard to blame injuries when you lose at home to a s***ty team like Columbus. They don't have a Datsyuk or Zetterberg on their team.
I am talking about Scott, because I have a hard time thinking of reasons why the Bruins would waive or trade Lucic for anything short of a huge overpayment?
Felt pissed when we had to chance to sign a guy like McGrattan or Scott and just refused to do so. The thing with McGrattan is, he is getting missused by Trotz this guy is dead serious whenever he fights pissed and an absolutely giants, usually guys like this should be in the lineup against every tougher team in the league.
Point being IF Trotz decides to dress him against us, we have no one to answer the bell Tootoo would absolutely get destroyed by him.
That's true. A team like Montreal would be the smartest to get a guy like McGrattan, because teams like Toronto and Boston in their own division are loaded with tough guys, and frequently bully Montreal.
The Blues are the best example of a team in our division who's way more physical, dresses many tough guys and has frequently bullied our soft team over the years. I'd love to have a McGrattan type player against them.
