I'm only a fan. Just a fan. I'm going to tell you what I want from a deckplate perspective, a fan's point of view. I'm going to tell you and it's going to offend a few of you and that's ok.
So...Here is what the Red Wings need to do, in order of relevance, timeliness and importance:
Lose tonight, Friday and Sunday. Every period. Every game.
Then, sometime between now and 1500 EST on Monday...
The Wings need to trade Jimmy Howard. They need to trade Howard and they need to trade Gus Nyquist. They need to trade Howard, Nyquist and Nick Jensen. They need to trade Howard, Nyquist, Jensen and Trevor Dailey. They need to trade Howard, Nyquist, Jensen, Dailey and anyone else over the age of Larkin, Mantha, AA and they need to trade them quickly. All of them, for picks, for salary reduction, on principle and on the quick.
Call up Zadina and for god's sake keep Rasmussen up. Let. The. Kids. Play. And let them lose. Often. Regularly. Nightly.
And then pick us a winner, Bobby (Roy Hobbs, Bobby Savoy reference).
Pick us a Hughes or pick us a Kakko. Either one will do, but get us one of those two.
Not done. Still going with the list.
Kenny needs to go. Stevie needs to stay...stay in Detroit and officially come home to the cradle that rocked his ass for two decades.
Lose. Trade. Lose. Draft. Fire. Hire.
