In response to shuperman's comment:
All i can say is ive watched detroit over the last few weeks. That team all buys in. They are getting a new stock of guys to build around dats, knonwall and zetts. boston dominated this game so eventually the flood gates would open in a 7 game series. But detroit wont be intimidated by boston. They took chicago to 7. They are a team that sticks to the system just as boston does. Plus they have some fantastic offense up front. Tatar could be on my crush list. He looks like mini Dats.
Det will give any team they face a headache. Dats and alfie will be in the lineup. Zetts is an outside chance of playing. Thats like getting bergie and dk back.
i have a lot of time for detroit. They sure can play the game. All this minus a goon.
I think they beat the Pens in 5. I think they'd lose to the Bruins in 6. When they do win a round. I don't see them getting much further unless Howard becomes a re-designed Hasek. I can't see a team with 8-12 AHL callups going that far.
I think pitt would take it to 6 or 7 but believe det will win. Det wont have that many in the lineup and some of them are top 6 fwds.
Dats, Franzen, Legwand, Tatar, Nyquist, Alfie look like they slide into the top 6. Which leaves a bottom 6 looking like
Helm, Bertuzzi, Miller, Abdelkader, Jurco, Anderson in the bottom.
When Zetteburg comes back bump Alfie down or ride the young line of Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco as a line. Then they really have a lot to play with.
Their back end i cant name anyone after the top 4 but they always seem to manage.
Once you get to better teams that are deeper i think it would expose detroits back end.
Cant wait for the playoffs.
