I agree, the Wings should keep Shanny, if they cannot, I think they should sign Murray AND Deadmarsh…Murray has the game that Shanny has lost…and Deadmarsh has a TON of upside IF he can overcome his concussion problems…
I would like to see the Red Wings retain Schneider, at least on a one or two year deal…he had the best season of all the wings blueliners and displayed a mean streak in the playoffs like he had never shown before. But if they are unable to retain him, then it shouldn’t be catastrophic. I like him and I don’t agree that he is expendable. Wooley, on the other hand, should be cut loose…yes, he had a fine season before his injury, but I think that was a dying gasp. Rivers and Kronwall need to be worked into the lineup more regularly and Fischer needs to rebound from a HORRIBLE playoffs.
I also expect Hatcher to be fully recovered and not appear to be trudging in mud, but actually skating on ice.
Chelios has one year left.
another addition up front that makes more sense than anyother and surprises me that no one has pointed it out already, is Segei Brylin. He is ultra-responsible defensively and capable on offense. he would fit well on the Datsyuk Zetterberg line and when Grigorenko is ready, could form a potent Russian 3, allowing Zetterberg to move to Center once Stevie Y retires…]]>
