I've said all along there aren't 8 teams than them in the West...not to say that there aren't 7 teams better though. They'll give Chicago or Anaheim a heck of a battle but I'll keep my expectations grounded...still thought they were playoff worthy but they're a ways away from being cup contenders.

The things I'm happiest about...DeKeyser has fit in perfectly and he unquestionably belongs, Nyquist is playing with a lot of confidence and Howard has been money...literally. The supporting cast still bothers me with how they'll disappear too often. The Wings postseason success generally has come from the best players being the best players but you'd get contributions from other unexpected sources. Last night had a playoff feel with Eaves and Tootoo being impactful.
