I think E's been pretty decent this year, though. Or at least better than many expected of him. He's had some trouble lately, but we've also been playing some faster teams, whose speed seems to really put him (and the wings in general) off their game a bit.

4m is fine, but when you get close to 5m it's an issue. I think Rinne is the best goalie in the league behind Thomas and I think his contract is brutal.

95% of our team seems to not be very good players if you go by some peoples criteria.

Whose fault is that?

Why has the team lost its mojo so easily the last two games?
Goes back further than that even. Conks let in a softie with seconds left in the Washington game and the team capitulates the next two periods.

Team has no force of will when things go sour it seems.

Rinne's deal is brutal - made more so by the likelihood that Nashville has their own internal cap. With Ilitch appearing willing to bankroll whatever Holland says is needed, we could probably handle such a contract (maybe), but I was shocked to see Nashville throw that sort of money around on a goalie.

But even Howard at $5m, while I wouldn't like it, I think we could still handle that. I mean, even if he was earning $5m this year, we'd still have $3m in extra cap space.

That deal is brutal indeed. I can't believe the Preds were that stupid to throw so much money on Rinne. He deserves 4-5.

Anyhow. The Wings had 2nd best record on the road last season. This season so far they have struggled on the road. Any explanation?

Clearly they were throwing road games out of protest until the NHL moved them into a more suitable conference.

Undefeated on the road from here on out.

The Wings and Hawks winning on bargain goaltending devalued the goalie market and drove up the defenseman market thanks to the likes of Lidstrom and Keith.

No... the amount of serviceable goalies devalued the goalie market. Why would Phoenix spend 7m on Bryz when they could spend 2m on Mike Smith and be the exact same?

I thought this was Huldler's best game.
