No one ever gives us respect, fine with me, I will match our record in the past 9 yrs with anyone. Our luck in the playoffs have not been there though.
The Wings could have gotten Suter or Weber but couldnt muster the cash
. I guess they are saving it for a new stadium
You are seriously delusional. Very few teams have the cap space that the Wings currently have. They will find better ways to spend 100M then to drop it on one player.
And you neglected to address my post that stated the Wings have as many Cups in the last ten years as the Preds have playoff series wins. That's a fair comparison, especially considering you state that you will match their record over the last nine years to anyones.
Oh yeah, match the records up. I bet its not what you think it is....
Wings - 448-195-89 = 991 points, 110/season average. No seasons under 100 points.
Preds - 385-260-82 = 863 points, 95/season average. Five seasons under 100 points (that's right, 5 of 9 seasons under 100 points).
Come back with a rebuttal when your teams "luck" changes in the playoffs.
