The thing they've missed is Helm's speed as a 3rd line center. I think more of the resentment towards certain players...coughClearycough...is more of a shot towards Holland for not willing to change or give the kids a chance.
Wings fans are awful with their "what have you done for me lately" syndrome. You get injured for any length of time and you become a hack in the fans' minds. Bertuzzi puts together some streaks of really decent play and plays a big game. We don't have a real power forward otherwise. Sammy? It's hard to tell since we haven't had a chance to get reacquainted. But I get the impression he knows what it takes to win at this level. And who else is going to replace Brunner on the PP point when Williams isn't available?
