I am ABSOLUTELY with you! (For starters, I'm a WI resident so we have learned that Packers fans HATE Da Bears and whatever else CHI has to offer) This is the NHL Playoffs. You either bring your best game or GO HOME! If you want ice dancing or figure skating, jump over to your ABC station.
How many other Wings fans got excited when Kronwall lit up ANYBODY in last years playoffs? It was awesome BECAUSE Kronner brought it. One of the best parts of the NHL is you can legally LEVEL another player!
What about the Wings/Avs rivalry? I don't know about you, but I HATED Colorado everytime the Wings played 'em. I have trouble respecting Roy as one of the best goaltenders of all time (even though I know he is). Lemieux hammering Drapes... The goalie fights... D-Mac going after Lemieux for payback... Forsberg is still a waste of space in my book. The 7-0 a$$-kickin' was SO satisfying I needed a cigarette after it.
All this being said, keep it clean and keep it on the ice. Don't be a ****** like Pronger or Avery. Do not intend to injure either. Yes, it happens, but do not intentionally go for injuries.
