In Topic: Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

So all in all a pretty good off-season so far right guys? Wouldn't be surprised if Dekeyser and Tatar don't want to re-sign with us. Absolutely ridiculous. At what point is Holland held accountable though?

That no call on the goalie interference is already so controversial. Going to be even worse if the Kings win this in OT. Looked like interference to me, but then again it was Dan O'Halloran.

Really tough break for the Habs losing Price. I doubt the Canadiens will stand a chance if he is out for the series.

This is why holland doesn't like bringing his guys up too early. But he drafts these young guys that are small and either can't or aren't conditioning to get to beast mode like subban. That kid is 24 and he's stout and energetic. Don't see much of that from any of the wings guys. They need to do something about their conditioning. It's not just about speed. It's about agility and speed. Like the lineman for Alabama. big strong AND fast.

The Canadiens were actually hitting them back hard and getting their fans into it which is something that the Wings just can't do. It's hard watching Tatar and Nyquist get completely destroyed and avoid hits the way they were in the Bruins series. I don't think that the Wings need to become the Bruins, but I think they definitely need some bigger guys in the lineup. Also, the s***ty NBC announcers kept harping on the "character" guys on the Canadiens, but I think the Wings need guys like that too. I like Glendo, but someone playing that role needs to be hitting and creating energy with every shift and scoring occasionally. Weise for the Candiens is a prime example of a bottom six grinder that the Wings need.

Unfortunately, this series just shows how inferior the Wings team was this season. The Bruins by no means outplayed them although Price was very strong in net for the Habs. The two teams were actually pretty evenly matched, something that cannot be said about the series between the Wings and Bruins.
