There is NO accountability for the refs. Bettman has them protected regardless of their conduct. If anyone pulled s*** like that at their day job they would be talking to the boss about their incompetence. These guys will just move on to the next game.
At some point Boston will have to prepare themselves for the post Chara era and I think Myers would be an ideal fit there. He is still young and if he ever develops and becomes even more rugged that guy has Chara 2 written all over him. It took Chara till his late 20 s to become the beast he is today. That's the gamble with Myers but its a gamble i'd gladly play.
At some point Detroit will have to prepare themselves for the post-Lidstrom... oh wait... he's gone and we did nothing?
So ya long term could prioritize a center. But short term 2-4 years a winger is higher priority.
Z and dats won't be reliable top centers after a few more seasons. They have too many durability questions. I could see both playing for a long time like selanne - high level but not carrying the team on their backs.
We take the lamest shots on the pp. we pass it around - realize we haven't shot then take some useless shot from the point that gets blocked. We need an end game on the pp. At least some sort of goal - like trying to get it low or moving the goalie laterally. right now we are just treading water.
