    Osgood

    He is not Patrick Roy or Marty Broduer, but good none the less. He did everything he could to help the Wings win, but that will only take you so far when your defense is not there. He is the man and I feel for him more than anyone.

    Were They Too Complacent Going Into Game 7?

    Yes, they were complacent. It showed in games 6 and 7. After game 5, they must have thought the Pittsburgh Penguins were the Chicago Blackhawks when they lost their composure. They went from a team who played with a "Why Not Us?" mentality to a complacent bunch who thought the Cup was rightfully theirs after 5 games. The ego does not bring with it success, hard work does!!

    SCF GAME 7 GDT: Penguins 2 at Red Wings 1

    Well, then they should have fired Scotty after the 1999 season as he did not lead the Redwings to a 3 straight Stanley Cup, or 2000 or 2001 for that matter. Just ignore that little fluke in 2002, his last year as coach. Outside his 9 championships, he was an utter failure as a coach!! :P :blush: :blush: In all seriousness, Babs is one of the best coaches in the game, and to quote Forrest Gump, even I know that is not something you find around the corner.

    SCF GAME 7 GDT: Penguins 2 at Red Wings 1

    Fire a coach after leading a team to 3 straight conference finals appearances and two straight Stanley Cup appearances and one championship in 3 years? How many other coaches have been in that position? With that logic, they should have fired Bowman after the 1994 season. The coach can only do so much.

    SCF GAME 7 GDT: Penguins 2 at Red Wings 1

    Firehawk is right though. As much as it pains me to say it, the Pens did deserve this game. Just like the Wings deserved to win game 5. They may have out shot them in the latter part of the game and they did win the faceoffs, but they could not control the puck. Winning the faceoffs is nice but is pointless when you turn the puck over every two seconds. The Wings got behind early so it is no wonder they outshot them. It is frustrating b/c the Redwings thought they could just half ass it the first two periods and come back in the 3rd. That crap may work in the regular season but it simply will not fly in the playoffs, especially game 7 of the SCF. It is not that people are "fair weather fans", it is that they know the Wings know how to win and simply did not play up to their potential in such a big game.

    SCF GAME 7 GDT: Penguins 2 at Red Wings 1

    Please!! fans are fans!! I seem to remember them booing, but if I am wrong, then I stand corrected!! The Redwings had a lot more to lose as they led the series both 2-0 and 3-2 and yet still lost, becoming only the 3rd? team in league history to lose game 7 of the SCF at home. There is no excuses as the Wings played like a bunch of ******* most of the last two games allowing the Pens to come back. People are tired of the half assed efforts this team has displayed all year long.

    SCF GAME 7 GDT: Penguins 2 at Red Wings 1

    What happened to the Wings? How could they let the Pens control the game tempo? This was the biggest game of their lives and they half assed it like it was still October!! The Pens deserved it. Good job pussin out Wings!! Nice how Crosby did not hand off the cup to say Malkin first!!

    SCF GAME 7 GDT: Penguins 2 at Red Wings 1

    The sad thing is is that if the Penguins do win, Crosby will get all of the credit even though he has done very little this series!! The media will make it sound as though Crosby carried the team on his back all the way to the Stanley Cup!!

    Is anyone else sick of...

    .... And the media must have us believe the p p p Penguins are just so freakin' unbeatable!! They are like the same morons that thought the Titanic was simply unsinkable!! I can think of a few better teams than s***tsburgh!!

    It drives me up the walls because the Redwings have been old for more than a decade now. Seriously, why are they still surprised? The Blackhawks are one of the youngest teams in the league and where did that get them? Was the 02 team not much older?

    Well, they do seem to be holding their own against Carolina, for what that is worth. I know they aren't the Ducks but still. They will be hungry after last year and with more experience as now they have been there. I do agree they have not had to face the same tough teams the Wings have. I mean the Flyers?, perennial chokes, and the young Capitals and Hurricanes? Their run is similar to the Blackhawks in the first two rounds. Well, it is anyone's series, though I would go with the Wings on their depth and experience.

    OMG, letter a co worker sent to the NHL

    Besides, how can the league hate the Redwings? They have one of the biggest fan bases in the league!! That would be like the NFL hating the Cowboys and Packers or the MLB hating the Yankees and Red Sox!! The Redwings are one of the league's biggest money makers, why would they hate and conspire against them? It makes no sense when money is the name of the game. P.S. I am sure the league after that game 7 against the Anaslime Dicks.

    OMG, letter a co worker sent to the NHL

    Threat? Nah It would be a waste of time on the part of the league to pursue any kind of legal action. I am sure this guy is not the only one to wish a bullet would find its way to Bettman's head. Hell, didn't Chelios once say he thought Bettman should be gassed?

    If the the Redwings get to the finals, they will have their hands full against either a red hot Pens team or one incredible Hurricanes team that only two other teams have done before. In all fairness, Penguins have more to fear as the Redwings have to be one of the smartest and most professional teams I have ever seen. They do not let anything get to them, no matter how hard the Dicks or Blackhawks tried.

    He was right!! This is hockey *hits( looked a little more like a collision to me) happen. After seeing such a display, I can't help but wonder if the league borrowed some refs from the NBA or something!!

    Greetings from Pittsburgh

    If a dog can shut down Crosby and Malkin and get a few past Fluery, then I'm in. They are not exactly the Chicago Blackhawks and they are certainly not the Columbus Blue Jackets. The only team that stood a chance against the Wings is the Anaslime Dicks. If anyone can beat the Redwings, it is the Penguins and I am sure the league wants the Pens to win more than anything, which is never a good thing.

    1983 - 1984!! The Edmonton Oilers ended the New York Islanders "Drive for Five". Yeah, it's been a while. It was the passing of the torch from one great dynasty to another as aging Islanders faded into mediocrity while the Oilers would go on to win 4 more cups over the next 6 years.

    If you get a chance to look at the replays, you will notice that Havlat had his head down, which is a big no-no. You will also notice that Kronwall tried to avoid the hit at the last second. In the end, it was clean and when you have your head down, you get hit!! Ask Eric Lindros. This aint basketball. The guys in the booth stated it best when they called it the "wussification of hockey". Welcome aboard!! The Penguins scare me!!

    Chicago Class

    Since 1997, the Redwings have won the Stanley Cup more times than the Blackhawks have even made the playoffs. Heck, they have won the cup more in the last 12 years than the Hawks have in their entire 83 year history!! I am sensing jealousy.

    Are the Ducks becoming the new Avalanche?

    I hope not!! I hate the Ducks more than I ever hated Colorado. Unlike Anaheim, Denver is actually a good hockey city. The Ducks are just some "Mickey Mouse Franchise" no one cares about. They are nothing but a drain on the league and I hope they never ever get anywhere near the cup again. I hope they finish dead last next year.

    NBC is biased against the Wings

    What is with all of the "everyone is against us mentality"? The NHL and media outlets are thrilled that the Redwings and Blackhawks won and probably bummed that the Bruins did not. They are big markets with large fan bases, old ones as well and therefore draw in the ratings. That is the name of the game, big ratings = more money, that simple. At the same time, they would be pulling their hair out if it were Anaheim and Vancouver in the WCF b/c no one cares about them and would not watch. Now, if they get to the finals and the Pens are there, then yes, you have a point b/c Crosby is the league's new golden boy.

    WCF 2nd Most watch program on Directv

    The fact that these two teams advanced to the WCF is a blessing for the NHL. I am sure they were thrilled after Thursday's game 7. Like the Redwings, the Blackhawks have a huge fan base, so it is no surprise that ratings are up. It is too bad the Bruins did not win as well as the East would be the same.

    Columbus or Anaheim?

    Over the last decade, the Wings have not fared so well against those California teams, so I say Columbus. It means less travel for the Wings as well. Besides, games in Columbus are almost like home games at the Joe.

    Why should the fans be forced to accept something they do not like? Is that not part of the problem in this country, and the world for that matter? For too long, we have been told our opinions do not matter and made to feel powerless and therefore accept change for the worse. When will people finally grow a back bone and say enough is enough and no longer allow themselves to be pushed around? If people did this, the league would listen because without the fans, the league is nothing. The corporations are nothing but little PISS ANTS jumping on the bandwagon and would surely not be far behind the fans heading for the exits. What is with all of the negative attitudes that we must begrudgingly accept such crap? Fans, you need to get off your lazy asses and do NOTHING!! (in terms of supporting NHL hockey) as it will surely force the league front offices to reconsider!! Remember who the boss is. hint: look in the mirror. It is as easy as 1,2,3 and it would not hurt the league, in the long run that is. Our president Barak Obama, as much as I do not like the man, made a great point when he said the words "Yes We can!!" He was right. Our voices can be heard and our actions can bring about positive change as we should not be forced to settle for things with which we the majority disagree. All that is needed is for people to grow some stones and stop being a bunch of damn sheep and say no!! Okay, done preaching for the night.
