It all boils down to this: Boston is just better. MUCH better.
Exactly. People need to take the homer glasses off, and set their emotions aside. This team at this stage in its growth is nowhere near as good as Boston. Hell, probably half of our lineup tonight started the season in Grand Rapids, and not just started the season there, but likely would have finished it there if its not for all the injuries. Theyre young... its called growing pains, we're not used to it because of the steady line of vets we've rolled through here... its a changing of the guard in Detroit... We're not as good as we like to think, we've been spoiled. It's going to happen all over again though as these kids get more experience, and size, we're going to be that deadly team again, especially up front. On the back end, the D really needs help, it needs a solid vet.
