    Another crybaby

    For God's sake, Hudler is a worm. he trained with UFC fighters, he is bad as it gets. you can't let scum like huddler play in this league after he spends his summer hanging out with UFC maniacs, smashing skulls and bruising women. Finally the truth comes out on this dirt bag.

    Report: Gary Bettman makes $7.5M

    Really since 2005 (the lockout) till now do you know how popular our game has become compared to what it once was. There is a hell of a lot more NHL talk nationally than ever before. Just think Nashville Tennessee is a hockey market now.

    Brad Stuart

    makes sense, since he is a top 2 penalty killer and just a solid defenseman. he moves the puck well and is great in the corners and in front of the net... plus our only canadian defenseman... Babcock loves him too. thats just a horrible statement. Holland said he wants to reload our d-unit, not tear it down and rebuild it..? thanks you! re-up him for three more years please and thank you!

    WCSF Game 3 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

    Okay to think this team is gonna be on top year in and year out is crazy. The team has a cycle of good players in and out every year, this year may not be that year. doesnt mean over half of this fan base on here needs to starts PMSing that the team needs to get torn apart and moved to Alaska... *sarcasm* I'm sorry for the mistake, point being made though, were just as bad as Chicago fans then? anyways still a game four left. I live and die for my Wings so I'll be there losing my voice just like in game three. I'm just surprised we have so many bandwagon fans.... Yes, that is what I am saying. Hell you know if we win a game or two and make this something, All these people are gonna shut it. You know I believe in karma, and with all this bad mojo being said by everyone, no wonder the bounces havnt gone our way... maybe if our lot of fans actually had a positive thought in their souls the wings would get a good bounce this round.

    WCSF Game 3 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

    for all people requesting for a clearing of the house... you know game 4 is friday... right? like they actually still have hockey to play for.. every chicago fan i know last round was staying positive till the very end, and they were one goal away from doing it too. come on people, lets be real fans here and cheer them till the end. you know if something happens and theyre playing in a game 7 next thursday, youre all gonna be cheering your lungs out. so before you start your bitching about how the team blows, theyre unmotivated, howard sucks, flip stinks, franzens lazy, hollands mental, or babcocks stupid.... keep the pride up and look forward to another game. one game at a time, this is the most exciting time of the year and were spoiled enough to enjoy it year in and year out. lets root for them one game at a time and just pray a bounce or two goes our way. hockey is a mysterious game... anyways game 4 is friday. GO WINGS

    game 3 lineup changes?

    I think we need more depth scoring. More body banging in the offensive zone, and more cycling. So split Pavel and Henk up. Take Miller out and maybe even Abdelkader.... but i think the home ice is going to spark him. anyways this my line up Franzen-Datsyuk-Filpulla Cleary-Zetterberg-Holmstrom Bertuzzi-Modano-Hudler Eaves-Helm-Draper Same D pairing but TAKE SALEI OUT for Kindl. Salei has been horrible with the puck and we need better puck movement. Time for the rook to shine.

    Official "We Believe" Thread

    i believe in taking it one game at a time. Wining game 3, then some hard practice. Then winning game 4 and sending this back to San Jose tied. one game at a time Red Wings, please... BUT I DO BELIEVE

    The Wings flipped the "switch"

    Even though the Red Wings lost last night in the shootout, i think that the Wings flipped the switch after Zetterberg scored the first goal. I was in attendance last night verse the Pens, and after they scored their forth goal to make it seemingly a blow out, the place went quiet, you could only hear the packs of Pens fans cheers in the whole place. I think the Wings fans had too much pride to boo their team in front of the Pens... anyways, after the Pens went up 4-0 and Z scored the first goal, the place didnt get too loud, and the cheers that were made were more sarcastic cheers, ie saying, "a little too late boys". And i think the team sensed that, and they went into the locker room and something happened. When they came out, they flew and didnt let the big hits from the opposition stop them, they skated through the hits, they moved the puck beautifully, and got three goals to tie the game, against a weak, but VERY confident looking Penguins team. Even though Jimmy looked weak, two of the four were NOT his fault in my eye... I think this is it, what we saw at the end of the game is what we are going to see up till and through the playoffs for the most part. The wings started playing playoff hockey last night, when Cleary and Modano scored back to back in two minutes, the Joe got louder than it got all season long! I would have guessed it was a playoff game if the fire had came out of the big screen. This is it boys, the run for the Cup began last night, we play Vancover once, Nashvile once, and Chicago THREE times in our last 9 games. Western Conference rivals in more than half of our remaining games, 6 of 9 are at home. the RUN begins HERE! GO WINGS :siren: I just wanna know if anybody else feels the same?
