Yeah, Detroit does look pretty weak on the back end so far, have had trouble getting the puck to the forwards, I think they will be in the fight for 8th.
Yeah, I like a shorter season myself, like the Swedish league and the KHL, the NHL games are more intense because of it, it would be better for the league if the season was shorter.
Don't forget King Henrik in the goal. He had an amazing season in 2012. Shame they failed in the playoffs.
I miss wayne and mario...ALOT. Those were the days.
I miss Peter Forsberg.
imo the complete hockey player. Too bad all the injuries got the best of him. I really liked Lindros too. But same with him :/ Both Forsberg and Lindros could have had such great careers but they played in an era that was more brutal.
Forsberg took like 6-7 concussions, had to remove his spleen and pretty much had injuries over his entire body until finally it was the foot problems that ended his career. Lindros had to stop because of the concussions I think.
Shame really. The skilled power forwards are the best kind of hockeyplayers. Those who can light it up on the scoreboard but also run someone over if they have too.
Ovechkin had something going on his first seasons but now I don't know about him anymore. Seems too much of a one-trick-pony. If he had some more playmaking ability he'd be a lot harder to defend against but he's RW and not C so I guess it can be forgiven
