They have 5 20 goal scorers but still are just in the middle of the pack in terms of goals scored if I remember. Back in the glory days they were near the top of the league in goals scored and gave up the fewest goals and now you wonder why the Cup winning days are long gone!
When was that? When the cap didn't exist? Sorry but the cap has introduced parity, get used to it because we will never dominate like we did before.
We are too spoiled now. If things don't go or way we whine about them like we are entitled to something. Be thankful we are not the Leafs, Rangers or even Edmonton. They haven't won a cup in forever and two of those teams absolutely suck with no chance they get better. I said it before and will say it again, if Detroit wasn't as successful as they were in the pst half the "fans" wouldn't be here.
Ok so Babcock made one correct change. What about Ericsson now who gifted a goal yesterday. Why doesn't he get benched or moved down. It's not like he's a top pairing defense-man and we absolutely can't move him down.
