But do you lose players like Lidström, Rafalski and Stuart over several years and still do absolutely nothing to bolster the defense?

 

We should thank our lucky stars that hometown DeKeyser fell into Holland's lap or our defense would be an absolute s***fest.

 

 

KFQ!

It's real easy if you choose to do absolutely nothing.

 

Being an active GM on the other hand is incredibly hard.

 

Its not like the guy scheduled a two week vacation to the moon and skipped free agency the last few years.  There's plenty of info that suggests he kicked a ton of tires, made several intriguing offers, and in most cases those players chose not to come here for various reasons.  He's not soley to blame for our recent downturn.  You don't lose people like Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Osgood and replace them all right away...in some cases you may never be able to replace talent like that.

That was pretty much a given anyway.


How could you not do a better or at least comparable job? he never does anything at all.

 

You're right....being a GM is as easy as NHL 14 makes it out to be, what was I thinking?

Bickell can go fly a kite....but Seabrook would be nice for the right deal.

We all know it will be the Cleary Center! But in all seriousness, I'm glad to see that the Wings are getting the state of the art arena they deserve. Many of the newer venues are catering to the families and casual sports fans who expect a "show" besides just the game.
