People Think the Detroit Red Wings will “fall”?

Get a grip. I have been listening to NHL interviews with various sports writers, announcers and analysts. There is a hub bub (speculating talk) about the Detroit Red Wings being the team to watch since they lost Hossa and other key players. “The Red Wings may fall” is the statement. Apparently, these “hockey news” individuals need something to talk about to fill air time.

Spare me with the negative speculating. The NHL season is only a few days old. Sure, the Wings were swept by the St. Louis Blues. So what? As much as I love watching hockey, I don’t place much credence in the first half of the regular season. The teams are still working bugs out.

And, as far as Marion Hossa goes. I think he’s overrated. A 40-goal scorer typically shines during the playoffs and Stanley Cup finals (if their team makes it that far). Hossa did not do that at all for the Wings. He wimped out. And…he was not injured at that time.

Geri Hudler went to the Russian league. He’ll do a great job, I’m sure. I also believe he’ll be back in the NHL when the time and situation is a match for him.

Mikael Samuelson, another former Wing who was a key player during the 2008-2009 season, will be missed. He’s not indispensable, however.

(The Wings let the above-mentioned three players go since the salary cap would have been exceeded. Apparently, the top five players of the team take 90% of the allowed salary cap. Woah…)

The Detroit Red Wings have far too much depth and experience to sit by idly and let their team rely upon a handful of players. It is a team effort in the franchise. It always has been and always will be. The sport of hockey, in general, is a team effort.

And, the Wings’ “older players are getting older” philosophy? Spare me. I’m so sick and tired of hearing others stating the Wings are too old for their own good. Every year it’s the same thing. Get over it.

Yes, the Wings lost the Stanley Cup to Pittsburgh. It was a great series, though. And…it did not lessen my belief in or loyalty to my favorite hockey team….the Detroit Red Wings.
