Twins-PP time taken away from players that skilled and we see the results.Tough for talented players to grind it out game after game after game.



I frigging hate this statement.

I don't see Malkin relying on Powerplays to get his points, or Crosby. Or Stamkos. Or Ovechkin. Or Grioux....

Sedin's need to get it done 5 on 5. STOP F'ING RELYING ON THE POWERPLAY.

EVERYONE grinds it out. EVERYONE.

Shut up with that "our window is now" garbage. Our window is now AND the foreseeable future. We aren't some garbage bubble team. We are a great team built to be successful year-in and year-out. Guys like Kassian will help us continue our success.

look at the sens when they made the finals, the flames when they made the finals, tampa when they won the cup... tons of other examples... they all thought their team was built for that moment and the future and look what happened to those teams. Face reality, not many teams can do what Detroit does year in and year out. Kassian will not help us continue our success, stop kidding yourself.

This. If the Sedins were Kesler's age then I think it would be totally different. You could argue the entire top 6 is still fairly young and will allow this team to compete for years. That's not the case, though, and the team doesn't have any young potential 1st line centres either to take over for Hank. Hodgson was the closest thing to that and we don't need to go there.

The time is now because I don't know what's going to happen when the Sedins retire.
