Every team in NHL has at least 2-3 D man like Stuart. Feeling the void left by him should be fairly easy to do. I personally don't think he will be any better than he was a few years ago. Stuart can go to SoCal or NoCal does not mater. Iam positive thise offseason Wings will see improvements in all areas.
Go Wings !
Blues worked hard all season long. Wings did not. Our team is more talanted and experienced than blues. If Wings work hard and play with passion, they should have a good chanse to beat the blues. Much like the " bad ass, physical Dalas" team years ago.
Wings usually do well against physical teams. This season Bruins, Blues, Flyers and many others. What most people underestimate in Wings is the ability of the team to play any type of a game if they have to.
I am confident Wings will match well against any team this offseason.
Lots of Wings fans. People are usually friendly with opposing team fans. I have worn my Fedorov jersey many times and got complements for it. Staple Center is really nice. Back in days when we had the Russian 5 and those games were played at Great Western Forum I have had lots of fun going to Wings games. Big Russian community here and Wings fans would wear Red Army hats and some really cool outfits to those games. One thing about Kings fans is that majority go to those games to see hockey fight rather than a good hockey game. Some people will disagree with me, but that is what I have noticed. Overal, I wish I could go to more games. Go Wings !
Going to the game tomorrow and hoping to see some of our guys back in the lineup.
Finally got good sits behind the benches. Look for me screaming at our lazy boys.
Franzen and Cleary will have goals in a Win.
Go Wings !
