This is what the Red Wings looked like the last time they played in a game. I repressed the whole Calgary series since it was one of the uglier incidents in recent memory.
However, a quick look at the roster brings back some hope. Remember, the Wings won the President's trophy after finishing with 109 points in 2003-04. They were the best team in the regular season by a long shot.
There have been some rumors that the new collective bargaining agreement will include some kind of a one-time salary cut exemption where the team is only responsible for somewhere around 60% of the player's salary. If this is true, I would expect to see Derian Hatcher and his hefty contract shown the door.
