In Topic: Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

01 August 2014 - 12:17 PM

Dats and Z are amazing when healthy and they do miss their games to injury but not nearly as much as last year.
Franzen stays streaky hopping on and off the first two lines, gets injured for a little while and has a couple of game winners. 15-20 goals.
Weiss has a pretty good year. Thinking 20 goals.
Defense has some good moments. Scores a bit more but only because some kids get called up and make an impact. Not a scary bunch and the experience(yes the vets), aside from Kronwall, will continue to bring this unit down especially getting beat back on rushes and lack of physicality. This and our goaltending will continue to be the weak links.
Howard will continue to be streaky and dream he could time warp back to Raf, Lids, Stuart and Kronwall in his prime days. Even then Howard couldn't get us out of the 2nd round. Monster is solid as backup but gets hurt and Mrazek plays a lot more than we all expect but makes our goalie future look brighter than we think. Big goalie controversy ensues a few weeks before the playoffs.
Coaching and power play will be better. This plays a big role in us making it 24 straight years especially in a weaker conference.
Quincey has a soso year and is a little better than last year but him and Kindl are scratched for a lot of the season which is a good thing.
Cleary becomes a daily scratch.
Kids continue to make an impact in regular season. Tatar and Nyquist put up solid numbers, third line is one of the fastest in the league.
Helm stays relatively healthy and the 4th line isn't so easy to play against.
Wings take the 5th seed, make it to the 2nd round and play a hard fought 7 game series coming up just a bit short.
Holland makes a move at the trade deadline finally to acquire either a power forward, goalie or solid defenseman for playoff run. Another 2nd round exit forces him to address the other 2 next offseason.
One year from today we are a happier,more optimistic bunch!

I'm baffled as to what this brings to the team. What exactly does this bring? Did Holland lose a bet with Cleary? Where are the defense issues that need to be addressed?

I know ESPN sucks but I have the app on my phone to update me for a few of my teams and the song went off and this is the news I see?

No doubt Zetts and Dats will probably not win another Cup before they are soon gone. Sad but true.
