Football Extra Points:
The Detroit Red Wings have been one, if not the best, NHL team for the past 20 years. But will that continue with the Wings moving east and some of its main core of players 30 and above in age? I would say yes for a couple of reasons, in my opinion the move to the eastern conference will help the Wings Tremendously. In a lockout shortened season the Wings finished with 56 points that landed the 7th in the Western conference but finished 3rd in there division. Many considered the central to be the hardest in the league with 3 out of the 4 team making in to the playoffs with Blue Jackets only missing by a single point. I consider the East to be way weaker than the West. So that helps the wings playoff effort. While some of the main players from the wings being 30 or old they have plenty of young guys that will play this year Gustav Nyquist who is only 24 will one the 3rd line most likely But coach Babcock isknown to roll all 4 lines and for example if the 2nd line is not playing well ...
