I don't see why people keep saying that the wings have a cup winning roster with the addition of Hossa and we're fine. Are we guaranteed another cup just because we have the same people and an additional super star? Yeah, it worked for us last year, but this year is different. Other teams have improved a lot, and are currently doing better in the standings then last year's Detroit Red Wings at this point in the season. I just think assuming that we don't need to add/move anyone because we won a cup last year is complete crap.

You might be refering to other people, but I never said we're fine. We're faaaaaaarrr from fine.

What would you have Holland do? The Wings are so close to the cap. Adding a tough guy won't solve the Wings defensive woes. Right now (imo) the Wings need to focus on getting Osgood and the defense going. I think it's there best chance.

Yeah, i'm a bit serious today... it's very cold outside.

Wasn't directing it towards you sorry should have been more clear. I was just commenting on the part about the same cup winning roster + Hossa. A lot of Wings fans tend to use that argument as a way of saying why Kenny should stand pat. I personally think he should not.

Now to answer your question, what would I have Holland do? No clue, that's why I'm not an NHL GM. All I know is something has to be done if we're going to compete with the likes of San Jose, Boston, Washington, New Jersey or whoever else may make it that deep. Would a defensive change fix our goals against, or does Kenny need to bring in another goalie? We shall see I hope.

Edit: I don't see a Neil type improving our chances too much, considering our issues are on the back end. Yeah, little grit would help, but that's not the answer. If a move like that is made, I don't think it will be the only move.

I know what your saying... Thankfully we have Ken Holland and he tends to do alright. I think I will sleep soundly tonight, but I hope they figure the whole back end out before the playoffs.

And here's a joke to lighten our (my) moods...

Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Steve Yzerman all die and meet in heaven. God is sitting in his chair and says to Lemieux "Mario what do you believe in?"
"I believe hockey is the greatest thing in the world, and the best sport in history"
To that God says "take the seat to my left, and Steve what do you believe in?"
"I believe bravery is the best"
To that God says "take the seat to my right, and Wayne what do you believe in?"
"I believe you’re sitting in my seat"

[Edit] I found something else I thought was funny... sorry for jacking the thread.

Tonight during the game, Holland told Ken Daniels that he has not talked to Murray in over 8 years. There is absolutely no truth to Detroit getting Neil, Detroit wanting Neil or anything of that nature.

Seems like Neil will be a fairly hot commodity. Very interested in seeing what the Sens can get for him, although I will miss him. Would be just fine with keeping him as well.

Took Wings off.

Quote:
Ken Daniels, Wings TV play-by-play man, talked with Ken Holland today regarding the Chris Neil rumor that the Wings may have interest in trading for him.

Holland says he has not talked to Bryan Murray since the Wings acquired Igor Larionov.

This is not correct. Razor was talking about the Sharks going after him. I just went back on my Tivo to check.

Yes, I was just going to post the same thing he mentioned about the Sharks going after him and he'd be a good fit in the grittier type of games.
