How many teams do you know can lose 8 out of their last 9 games, and still be in first place in the League? That’s the Detroit Red Wings for you. They’re practically playing on crutches right now, and it shows, but they did so well when they were healthy that we still have time to recover without ever losing the lead. Now today is the trade deadline, and there’s no telling who we’ll land, but CBC is tossing around the name Marian Hossa, which would add a phenomenal offensive punch to the team. But offense rarely if ever wins championships. Playoff hockey is about grit and defense. Which is why I’m even more excited that Mac is back. He may not add much defense, but he’s got “grit” in spades. If we can just get Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Hasek back on the ice, we’ll be all set defensively.
