  1. Couldn't agree more.
  2. In spite of everything tonight that still had me laughing. Oh well. At this point I'd like to see the Wings show some heart and not bow out at home.
  3. Haha me too.
  4. The biggest problem is Ozzy has to be pretty rusty by now so I would question putting him in unless Howard is really getting shelled.
  5. I have a 98 Western Conference Finals puck signed by Stevie Y.
  6. Cool! When it was mentioned he didn't like the fit, I figured it would be a standard full mask and not the player helmet and cage combo. Too bad he never wore either of these.
  7. Huh? I was laughing at what our friend from Pittsburgh said.
  8. The Cup has been through so much I wouldn't be surprised. Not sure if that's true though.
  9. Thanks for the classy post! Right now there are still plenty of raw emotions on this forum as you can see. I think it's like when Draper was quoted as saying Lidstrom was upset about the whole Crosy handshake thing. The game hadn't been over that long and being a player involved on the losing side I'm sure he was pretty upset. It's the same way for many fans in terms of what gets said on here after a loss. I personally feel the series came down to the Pens hunger to win and the Wings lack of hunger and tiredness. Again kudos to you for posting your comments in a very classy manner.
  10. Chelios and McCarty were pretty much non-factors in the playoffs. McCarty never played, but, Chelios played limited minutes when we were down defensively (and gave me at least one heart attack). Obviously Lidstrom is the biggest loss we'll have to retirement in the next few years. I think our younger players like Abdelkader can take over for role players like Maltby and Draper. If by the beginning of our "demise" you mean a return to the "Dead Wings" era, no way. Not to say we won't have struggles, but this team isn't going to fall apart.
  11. Sweet! Thanks for sharing!
  12. I'm no guru at navigating the downtown area so I like any easy in and out parking. Since you are coming from the north, like I have, if you run mapquest directions it should have you getting off of John C. Lodge Freeway at exit 1A. You'll probably see a little backup on that exit from traffic to the game depending on when you arrive, but the neat thing is the parking garage for the Joe is right there when you exit. As far as leaving both times I have gone I took a right out of the garage and followed Jefferson down to Rosa Parks and turned right. Go straight on Rosa Parks for a few miles and you'll see signs to get back on 75 North which will be a right turn. That's how I've done it anyway. Mapquest's return directions wanted me to make a u turn and go back the way I came on Jefferson to get back onto John C Lodge Fwy, but it might be a huge pain if the traffic is even allowed to flow that way.
  13. Same thing I was thinking. I didn't want them to lose, but at least I can go to game 5.
