Can the Wings sign someone overseas from the KHL or SEL?
No, we're not a team of jobbers with no fans that needs to drum up interest. Sometimes I wish we were, we'd get to have our cake and eat it, too. As it stand we're an actual NHL team in an actual hockey city and we don't get help. Christ, of all teams, we really don't ever get any help, so this shouldn't be a shock.
Boston is an injury to Thomas away from having Marty Turco as their starter...you don't see them going all chicken little.
Not the logical ones but to be fair, home team fans on msg boards are always neurotic, pessimistic chicken littles. It's only when discussing every other team (that they don't care about) do they behave logically and rationally. Their world won't end and leave them openly weak and vulnerable if 29 other teams lose, but if the Wings lose...you get the idea. It's exactly why GDT threads are about as fun to me as taking my black friends to klan rallies. I'd rather pass kidney stones that read some of the emo drivel that people have the nuts to post.
