*pithy remark here*

 

Kind of a jerk move this close to the pre-season and after other teams have hired all the good free agent coaches.. 

 

Wait.. what do I care? Hope the Avs come in at the bottom of the West!!

 

P.S. We could use some of your Dmen on a fire sale..

So, you want a guy who is in his second year to center the top line?

 

The same guy that had a rough time in the tail end of his first season?

 

You know, the guy who was in the Calder discussion until he fell off the map due to the longer grind of an NHL schedule?

 

That guy?

I'm really not so sure we need a "top defenseman".  Would it be nice, sure.  But I don't think that's a make or break factor heading into this season.  I've said already that we've got to sort out the usage with the guys we've got, but if Blashill pulls his head out of his ass and gears his usage toward possession and offense then we could be dangerous.  The other big question mark is whether or not Holland is willing to cut bait with veterans who can't hack it.  In some ways I seriously doubt that part. 

 

I realize I keep posting lines.  But humor me.  There's a lot of offensive potential in something like this provided Blashill doesn't get too caught up in this "shot suppression" type game.  This lineup would be adequate defensively, but they could score A LOT if things go right.

Good catch, I guess I missed that part on the read through.

 

Dang it.

 

 

I don't believe so. 

 

It was this quote that makes me believe it's for those living in Michigan only...'For fans in Michigan, that means Detroit Red Wings games will be available on digital devices through Fox Sports Go.'

From what I got - it only works for those in Michigan.

 

I have DirecTV with the regional sports package, and every Wings game on FSD is blacked out - therefore I get Center Ice.

Yeah, but that was PRIOR to this year. I was the same way but I think we'll be OK now?
