I doubt it.


"Y'know, we only missed the playoffs by a couple points. If we win one more shootout, we're probably in. And once you're in, you've got as good a chance as any other playoff team. At the end of the day, we're a team in transition. We like our team. I know there are people who want us to tank, but I've never bought into that kind of thinking. We're gonna keep doing what we've been doing. We're not going to blow everything up because we missed the playoffs by a couple points."


We'd have to miss the playoffs by a country mile. (And even then, I dunno.) If it's close, we stick with the status quo. Because Red Wings.


Our best/only hope: kids. More specifically, we need a new prime-years Datsyuk and a new prime-years Zetterberg. I think Larkin is (going to be) that good. I think Athanasiou has that kind of top-end potential. I think Mantha can grow into a new prime-years Franzen. I've always felt Mrazek has Vezina potential. I think Saarijarvi is an elite talent. But it's probably going to be several years before Holland and Blashill are willing to truly hand the keys over to the next generation. Because kids have to "earn it," or some such bulls***.

i dont mind keeping the kids into the minors until they are well done but there is such thing as overcooking and i think Wings are good for wasting some years off these guys

In Topic: Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Yeah, we never should have signed that bum Helm, he's not good at hockey... Now Martin, that's who we should have signed, guy's a stud... Grass is always greener...

i would def be ok with a line of AA Larkin and Helm could you imagine that speed alone? i dont think any line could touch them

In Topic: Wings file for abitration with Peter Mrazek

if Petr is signed for over 5 mill than holland is def going to have to make moves he will have no choice cant have jimmy and petr making 5 mill a peice not when you got Jared Coreau recently signed to years might be willing to give him a shot a year earlier if we could move jimmy and a few forwards 

In Topic: Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

I guess Sheahan can move down to let Darren "Stonewall Hands" Helm can center the 3rd.

Seriously, either way, I hope Ott earns that spot and stays.

i see it more like this
