We really dodged a bullet there. Imagine spending 5+ mil on an enforcer! No thanks
All we need is weise or ribiero or someone like that who can fill the gap for a couple years until our prospects are ready to crack the top 6
I don't understand trading Colo unless its part of a package for a better defenceman (eg Yandle). He's a good player with a low cap hit. If we trade him and don't get another d-man back, then Lashoff becomes our 7D *shudders*
You don't like lashoff? I thought he looked more comfortable on the blueline than some of our other guys. He seemed to have the composure of a vet for most of the season.he struggled in the few playoff games he played, but he had been out of the lineup for weeks at that point
The Wings got very lucky to be up 3-1 on the Hawks. To have the their foot on the Hawks and blow it....that doesn't mean they are that close to the Hawks. The opposite is probably closer to the truth. The Wings couldn't have competed in these finals. With any of the 4 teams that were left in the conference finals.
You didn't watch, did you?
Watching this team through the playoffs, they felt like a team of destiny. I didn't think anyone could stop them. They just got cold at the wrong time and the bounces started going against them. If they had closed out that series, I have no doubt that they would have beat the kings. I don't know about the Bruins because we never played them, but why not? If we keep this core together and don't trade away our young guys, we'll be competing for the cup for a long time
