Babs is soon going to find out just how F** in the A he really is. If Kip is correct in his assessment that he's overrated, it will come out this year. He's always had high caliber teams whether it's the Wings or the Canadian national team. Now he has a team that is basically Phanuef, JVR and Lupul. He's F*****. I can almost guarantee that Shanahan does not do this the correct way. They've signed a bunch of mediocre players and acquired a a bunch of mediocre prospects.What's next? Be mediocre.
I recovered. I was personally getting angry that a lot of teams were getting better and it seemed we were just going to go with the kids. I was really angry that Pit got better, but with our two signings, I do believe we got significantly better than we were last season. ESPECIALLY if the roster is filled out by the kids and not Franzen and Cleary. Still a log jam all over, but could be very good for us! The streak will live for sure and maybe even more!
We'll also have Mrazek here all season stealing Jimmy's job and Jimmy (hopefully) staying focused because he knows if he slips, his job is gone. Win win for us!
Better forwards, better D, better goalie situation....(plus a Jack Adams finalist behind the bench! (Hey, I see it happening!))
A good signing. I know he can't play defense, but we have plenty of defensive minded defenseman. We just needed one person who can actually move the puck and shoot the puck well. Kronwall has regressed with his shooting.
