Looks like he might turn into an accidental genius this season. Sure, he still spent needlessly on some forwards...but I think there may be a reason for that. The cap is coming down most likely (what's the figure everyone is guessing at?). Weather he knew this would happen, or he had some luck...(the greats always need some luck involved)...and with a short season that just might play into the Wings' favor? Gotta say...things just may work out for him after all. Heh. Not to mention we have some nice prospects otw that will fill the gaps nicely when the vets (Bert/Cleary) start to leave. In short...Weather it was a stroke of genius, or luck...or a bit of both. Looks like what he did in the off season might have been the right call after all (a lot of teams are going to be burned with the cap being dropped). I see a lot of free agencies, juicy ones, in the future. Not to mention some waived gems...The NHL may get interesting the next couple of seasons. What do you guys think?
