The one thing that is driving me absolutely nuts lately is the fact that Homer adds absolutely nothing to this team and every night seems to get 2 minutes for being old and not athletic enough. I have seen enough of that guy that is for sure.
Sigh, The sky isnt falling but Detroit definitely needs to address there need for a scorer hopefully we can this off season. There was no way we could compete with the price for Carter. We don't have a guy like Jack Johnson to trade unless you want to deal Filppula or Franzen and even then I dont think Filp is enough and dealing Franzen leaves us in the same spot we started in.
I guess we won't really see how much of a difference adding Quincey will make until we are Healthy and we can see how good our Team Defense can play.
Heres to hoping that the small moves that all the other West Coast teams made all end up really being just a slight improvement, and that there prospects pools are too slim to compete in the next 2-4 years.
I would love for this team to flip Franzen for someone who shows up every night. I like Mule when he is playing hard but when he just floats around and acts as if he is 5 feet tall 123 lbs it gets frustrating.
I was thinking the same thing. If we got Quincey today, people wouldn't be so upset.
Quincy does not and cannot fill the biggest issue with this team. The lack of a sniper is pretty much the end of this team. They don't have a guy who just score goals. All they do is pass the puck 1 too many times and turn it over or they get a break away and shoot it at the goalies chest. They just don't have that guy who can score and until they do its going to be an early exit every year. The top 6 and bottom 3 on this team is just not good enough.
I thought a physical D-man who could play the PK was a pretty big need. That is filled by a 26 year old 6'2" 207 lbs defenseman who wasn't on Detroit a week ago...
I thought the Wings D was solid before that trade. Wings D > Wings offense. That is the problem when the only offense is coming from your 3rd line your team has issues. This team desperately needs scoring. 6 shots on net in the first period against the Avs is pretty embarrassing.
