That's the thing...you make a thread titled "LA Kings as a model", then suggest the exact same changes that everyone else (including yourself in other threads) already suggested, despite the fact that those changes don't do anything at all to make the Wings more like the Kings. Why even mention the Kings?
You're getting carried away. And so are a lot of the rest of you.
1) I'm not saying that they are THE nhl's model franchise, or that we SHOULD re-build our team in their image...I'm simply saying, "Hey, look, that's the best team in hockey right now, they are playing this game very differently than us, is there anything we can learn from watching them?"
2) How does adding Parise, adding Suter, and replacing Eaves and Miller (essentially) with two bigger power forwards signify the abandonment of our style of hockey?? That's all I'm suggesting that we do here. I think it'd make us a better team. And I don't think that Holland or Babcock would disagree in the least.
Should the Wings ty to improve for next year? Of course. But the Kings have nothing to do with that.
