Its amazing how much winning masks your weaknesses. The Rangers were soft to start the season, and rattled off a 7-3-1 record or something like that....now that were like 4-6 in our last 10, were in a rebuilding year.

The kneejerk reactions apparently extend to the beat reporters as well.

i have no problem whatsoever trading off Rozsival...in fact id call it a necessity to keep Staal. With that said, the Red Wings are always one of the softer teams in the league, and they dont seem to have problems because THEY WIN....in a few weeks when were back on our winning ways this will look stupid. Losing magnifies, winning hides...let's start winning out there.
Look at the players on Detroit now and the players they've won the cup behind. Zetterberg, Yzerman, Lidstrom, Shanahan, Datsyuk, Konstantinov, Federov, etc...

They can make up for what they lack in toughness with skill... by a lot. They are one of the only teams that can actually do that though because of their constant surplus of skilled players. This team is not even close in the skill department, so it's irrelevant right now.
