A thread to discuss this matchup.
I'm rooting for the Wild simply because I cannot stand Patrick Roy.
I know, I know - very scientific.
This is a tough one; on one hand I do not want Roy to have success, on the other hand I don't want Suter or Parise to have success because I'm bitter that they chose Minnesota over Detroit. It's all very childish but that's why we have sports, right?
My second beef is the way this team is build: there are too many europeans and not enough hardworking NA guys andd I truly believe having more good ol michigan kids would help getting the fanbase excited and more "into it" /quote]
I can tell you based upon what we saw today that Detroit got hosed. I can tell you based upon Holland's own statements and the information available that the deals that were offered for players like Yandle and Jbo (among others) were in the same ballpark as what other teams were asked or actually paid. So I have to believe that Holland is the issue, not the 29 other GMs.
If it was that easy, I can't believe it didn't happen.
It's easy to sit here looking at a roster and making up trades that "could've" gotten it done.

I said in place of Tuzzi on the 4th line, when he and Nyquist trade spots 2 shifts into the game.
You don't have cable?
I never had cable until I moved back to Michigan. I hate TV, with the exception of hockey. While away from Michigan I just used Game Center, which I loved for a lot of reasons, but the games are blacked out now and I had to get cable just for the wings.

I believe we need more than what can be obtained at the deadline to be a serious contender. 2 defensive upgrades and possibly scoring depth depending on injuries would bring the team to that level, and that's assuming the chemistry is there. The team lacks precision. Of course I thought that last year as well and was pleasantly surprised.
On a side note, I finally get done watching the Olympics and the thread is closed already? This forum is not what it used to be.
