People say Colorado and Detroit have a rivalry. I'm sorry, but that died off when Colorado slid into mediocrity. A "rivalry" is when two similar classed teams face off against each other.

Frankly, Colorado isn't the shadow of Detroit any more both on and off the ice.

Now their GM has come out and have said they are making a play at both Suter and Parise !! All I know, is if Detroit and Colorado came knocking at my door as a player, I know who's career I'd put my hands in first.

Detroit is a heavyweight team, and contender.
Colorado is a bottom tier team, and a survivor.

Good comment , very constructive
