Lost in all the chaos of injuries and trying to make the playoffs, it just hit me:
We've got some forwards that can shoot the puck.
Pulkinen (if all goes well)
+ Z and Mule, and sometimes Datsyuk
Pretty cool eh?
I think the last time we had 4 forwards that could legitimately shoot the puck was in 2009 with Hossa, Z, Hudler, Mule.
I wonder if someday the Wings might stop constanly going back to the point in the O-zone hoping for a deflection or a screen from the ghost of Holmstrom.
More realistically, maybe this will someday put an end to the following combination of words: power play. Bertuzzi. net front.
