Is XO ready to step up?
Is Marchenko good enough to stay?
Smith has been top 2nd-3rd Def.

What this team needs: Top 2/4 RHD.
So for the next season we have already:
Kronwall - Deke
Smith - Green
Errorson - Marchenko

How we keep Q. For me, thanks but no thanks to Q.

Kindl has no value

True.  Our grit played a factor in the win over the Avs and to some extent the Caps.  However, it was our speed that beat the Flyers in 97.  It was our speed that gave us our record breaking regular season in 96.  It was our speed that led us to the 95 Finals.  Our 08 and 09 teams were all speed and they nearly won back to back Cups.  I'm a little hesitant to give up speed for size.  

Just to make is simple, we had to play Avs before finals. As far as I remember, didn't Kocur scored SH goal in the finals? Darren McCarty scoring a beauty in game 4? Konstantinov huge hit on Hawerchuk... Physicality, speed and skills were all mixed well...

If we had a bunch of big guys, people would be complaining, saying that we're too slow. The Wings have a history of success with speedy teams, we should stick with it.

As for our flaws, the defense looks weak. Holland is relying on the defense getting built up through prospects because good defenseman are hard to come by these days and the good ones are getting overpaid. Honestly though, our defense is irrelevant if neither Howard or Mrazek step it up. Everybody remembers how great Mrazek was at the end of last year, but before that he was really inconsistent, like he is now. Howard is looking like the next Jim Carey. Unfortunately, Howie's contract makes him untradable and Mrazek is too young to give up on, so we're pretty much stuck.

We had a success with mixing speed AND GRIT.
Scotty was quick on roster needs and repairs (Shanny trade which changed our face and gave us couple of cups, and dlthat trade wasbdone because the Avs were tougher than us).
Saying that we were not big and physical and only fast team is WRONG CALL.

He's carrying that line. Half of offense is winning battles. Nyquist just pirouettes on the half boards until he loses control of the puck.

Not saying Euros are known to be soft it's just Nyquist is as soft as it gets and he just happens to be a euro

I wouldn't say that he's carrying that line... He can't carry himself and he's soft as a butter.

Babcock could and did.

Babcock was able to get 110% of all players. I don't think that coaching was a problem... Look what Bowman's have done in Chicago, Neil is doing nice work in Dallas - has balls to trade his players... GM should be able to address needs of his team... RHD was one of DRW needs but not the only one.

Year after year, same thing... Small and weak team, without grit and grit makes whole difference in playoffs. Too many similar players on this roster... Too many fashion models without balls. Kenny needs to bring hockey players otherwise we are not making playoff this year.

I think that Kindl will have a nice season (and I don't like him). Quincey could finished as 7th def.

#2617727 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

I like that 3rd line:

5'-9", 160 lbs... My German Shepherd is bigger than him

Stan is a GM who's not afraid of making some treads. He has balls to trade: Buff, Ladd, Versteeg right after winning SC... Kenny's opposite

I really liked that Kenny talked about not being happy about the early playoffs exits the past few years. For that reason he said that's why he didn't want to sign babs to more than 5 years which is an excellent point.

At the same time he could give a Stanley Cup conteder roster to Babs and not Playoff contender roster...
This team needs ROSTER changes

#2606976 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

This is insane. Let the guy go. We've made it past the first round once in the last five years, we obviously need some changes. 

You think that our actual roster can do better without Babs?!?!
I agree that we need changes... but ROSTER changes.
