if you've got the money, spend it...I'm glad Ilitch is an owner that isn't afraid to spend money, and he spends it very wisely...if you guys haven't noticed, a lot of the powerhouses have begun to make trades to gear up for a "now or nothing" run
as for chucking money at the problem, that's not what's being done at all, if you watched any wings hockey at all you would've noticed that even Dandenault has been playing center for us due to our lack of depth, a #1 center is something we needed very badly, and Lang will be the man to take over after Yzerman's gone...

as for too much money being tied up for next year, we really aren't that bad off...big $$$ players like Chelios, Lidstrom, Yzerman might go, and Holland has left himself a lot of options...

now the main thing on my mind...http://www.predheads.com/humor/opposition/detroit.htm

is that humor???
http://www.divealanche.com/ ... wtf do you care what some of our die hard fans write about your team? ... it goes 29 different ways.
