So the wings have better odds of winning the conference than the divison

Seattle Kraken 14/1 to win the West? I guess after Vegas’s run everyone is rushing to put money on them. You couldn’t attract me to that bet for less than 50/1.

The Wings number is probably about right. It’s the Buffalo and Arizona ones that are far off.

And there’s absolutely zero logical reason for it.

Yeah… I don’t expect us to be some sort of stellar team, but AZ got a whole lot worse this offseason, and Buffalo has a captain who doesn’t even wanna be there.

So when examining these “In’s & Out’s”.....

After you cut thru the emotional horsesh!t (that is certainly a factor when analyzing the new Wings roster).... I can honestly say that the only guy i wish was still here is Glenny !

I loved Helmer, but at his age you just can’t keep a guy that never ever got any better at putting the puck in the net !  You can’t teach “hands” and “touch” ....that’s the stuff you are either born with it, or you’re not.

You can add Frans Nielsen to the list of ‘Out’ players.

cutting the clear dead weight.
