They were a shallow, shallow team from Day 1 but somehow it all started to come together towards the end of the season.
Even with the additions of Weiss and Alffy, it's going to take the returns of Helm and Eaves, and likely a deadline-day Dman pickup before we call that team a legit contender again.
The miracle that was last spring won't happen again IMO.
I don't think Detroit can get past Boston as it stands, but the ability to play team defense will go a long way in that conference, which is just a circus defensively. There's a reason the West is 27-6-3 against the East so far. Makes the decision to hand Norris votes to the likes of Subban and Letang over guys like Keith and Pietrangelo look even more foolish than it already looked last year.
