Always enjoyed this semi rivalry, turco, Hull, Niewendyk, Guerin, Hatcher of the nineties, guys like Modano, Ott, Robidas, ect... have generally made this an enjoyable series. The current stars seem to be lacking a true identity, guys like Morrow and Ericksson are quasi stars, guys like Souray and Lehtonen are filler pickups, they look like they will be fringe playoff team for years, a low seed first round out at best.
The Wings took three out of four last week within the division, not crying sour grapes but the one loss was the worst officiated game so far this season. With kids like Andersson and Nyqvuist in the lineup while homer, conner and Eaves lick their wounds it is nice that we play tonight and then are off until Saturday against the Leafs, we can run three lines hard and use the kid corp 6-7 minutes tops. I love watching the skill the wings display this season. Commodore has finally started earning his keep, Kindl may be on his way out for a winger soon.
