The Hockey News has Detroit coming in at #4 in the Western Conference this year:
"Why: After an eight-year run as Central Division champs, a changing of the guard is set to take place. Detroit still boasts perhaps the league’s deepest lineup up front, but you can’t lose the likes of Marian Hossa and Jiri Hudler without taking a hit. That said, another 100-point season is in the cards."
Changing of the guard? Are you talking about our little brothers from the Windy City? A team led by a heartless mercinary, a cabbie slapper, a crotch spearer, and a $7+ million turnover machine?
Since they picked Nashville, St. Louis, and Columbus to finish #10-8, it's quite apparent that these people are overlooking the Central Division at an embarrassing level. Um...four out of five of these teams made the play-offs with Nashville not far behind. Everyone's love for Chicago being the new "it" team is in for a rude awakening when this team falls flat on its face. They don't reach the conference finals and I'll sit back with glee as the whole thing burns to the ground in the off-season.
Um...THN...are you serious?
