And the Wings board begins to melt down...

I can't believe someone has the balls to pop so many posters shiny red balloon! Ericsson is overrated this off-season, and without Nick and Stuey I think many fans are going to be shocked at how much more difficult a time we will have just getting out of our zone. All I can think of big E is taking bad penalties, chasing frantically in our own zone, and never scoring when he has an open opportunity. I cringe at the thought of him defending against Malkin, Kopitar, Thornton, Kessel, etc.
