Well, Yzerman’s two-for-three picking on the Wings’ wealth.

As expected for Maltby and Meech…

So, in the end the wings traded Ritola for Miller.  It just took a year to finalize the deal.

Another gift for Stevie. Wonder if this “deal” was made long ago.

Ritola for Miller is a good deal. This isn’t too sad. I’ll miss seeing him with Grand Rapids when they come to town, but oh well.

So at what point should we start calling them the Tampa Bay Red Wings?

Good angle. And, yea, that’s a fair deal.

I’m excited as hell to watch Tampa this year, I hope they tear up the east and Stevie Y shows the Leastern Conference how the big dogs in the west play.  He’s definately got the players to do it, I’d take Stamkos on my team anyday.
