Well if Ansar Khan is to be believed, the Wings aren't likely to get a top defenseman or a top forward. Instead, only a "secondary scorer" and a "lower cost" defenseman. So that's good. Because everybody knows the elite teams around the league are that way because of all the cut rate players they stock up on.
I've still got my fingers crossed, but it's getting harder and harder to keep my head buried in the sand.
I'm not saying the Wings should go out and sign or trade for some superstar, but a secondary scorer and a 5 or 6 dman with all that cap space would be really disappointing. We just keep getting lower and lower in the standings to the point where we're barely making the playoffs. You can't just sign a couple scrubs to cheap deals and expect that to improve. We don't have to sign players to make a run at a Cup right now, but let's at least make qualifying for the playoffs a little less exciting.
