Wings Will Finish 30th

Prediction: Wings win two games and lose one in overtime/shootout, finishing with 65 points, 30th in the standings and good for the No. 2 spot in the lottery.

More from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press as she breaks down the Wings' remaining schedule.

That looks like a set of schedules pretty favorable to us diving all the way to the bottom, potentially.  Mix ‘em up, coach!

The Kings are pissing me right off.  There is ZERO reason for them to be where they are in the standings.
When you have a Vezina worthy goalie, a Selke worthy 1C, and a Norris worthy Dman, all playing on your team, you should not be sniffing the league cellar unless they are tanking on purpose.

If we finish #29 instead of #30, its going to come back to bite us I’m afraid….

Geez, when you’re this close to the cellar, you do whatever is necessary to make sure that’s where you wind up.  Tanking doesn’t bother me one whit if Jack Hughes ends up wearing the winged wheel in 2020.

I said something very similar a few weeks ago. It’s complete BS this is allowed to happen. At least the Wings and even Ottawa are trying to win.
