I think this is a team that could make some noise and surprise people in the playoffs. But by no means do I think they are ready to contend. I think it is gonna take a playoff heart break to put the young guns on this team over the top. This team healthy can def give teams fits in a 7 game series. Would not be shocked to see next season having this team just be the right trade deadline move away from being a true contender.
Why not this year though with the right trade or trades?(veteran dman comes to mind) I mean most likely i see us surprising a team first round and being outed 2nd round but with zetterberg/datsyuk/kronwall/Franzen anythings possible.
I'm sure some of the kids learned from last years playoffs vs boston ... Nyquist and Tatar are only getting better ... If howard shuts the door down and keeps playing well
Might be biased cuz I love the wings but I think there's reason to be optimistic
