A Race To The Bottom

In a race to the bottom the Wings are on the right track. Heck, we're already dead last, and, may have last place locked up league wise. With a 14-40-4 record so far, and twenty four games left, the up side is watching the newest players and looking toward the future. With the occasional win sprinkled in there once in a while, it gives 19 fans a nice breather from all the bad moments this season has brought.

Yep. This season is an epic failure. The very slim outside chance of the Kings doing worse is still lingering…... wink

Thanks Katie. To me, the most frustrating thing aboot the tank is that it guarantees nothing. If Alexie Lafreniere (sp) is (maybe) a generational talent, it will be sad to not get the right to draft him. L.G.R.W.

Hello Reprobates .
Yeah the the last place guarantees you little.  In fact Ottawa with their other pick from San Jose, currently 5th worst, has a higher chance of the #1 pick than Detroit.
