So now that the Blues are starting to be good again and the Red Wings are trending down some fans are just going to be obnoxious.
Anyway back to the D that you brought up. Ian Cole could be the top four we are looking for. He has all the tools we are looking for in a partner for Pietrangelo but has had problems with consistency so far. If he can start to show he can play at a consistent level this year then our D should be in really good shape. Would it nice to get a vet d-man for that role? Sure. But we are a budget team after all so it might be hard to find the right trade that we can afford in assets and actual salary.
Yeah I hope Redden or Cole pan out. It would honestly be a shame if you guys couldn't put together a cup in the coming years because of ownership not ponying up a couple more million a year. I'm a big fan of Pietrangelo and Elliot, they need to win.
