  1. Too much analysis. Showing loyalty to Cleary wasn't a big deal in my opinion. He didn't hold anyone back, same with Abby. All our young players are either here now, or had their chance. With Datsyuk and Zetterberg, the Wings Management we're going to go for it to try and win Championships. Once one of them retired, it would be time to rebuild. Datsyuk's gone, so we are in the rebuild stage.
  2. Pierre McGuire is awful, he keeps talking about things that have nothing to do with the game. I don't care about some College Tournament, or what's going on in Manitoba. If I did, I would google it.
  3. I don't think you can compare the 3, Lidstrom and Zetterberg were captains in the cap era. I'm as big an Yzerman fan as the next guy, but Yzerman benefited from playing when GM's could add as many superstars as their owner could afford.
  4. Forget the streak, it's time to rebuild.
  5. Ah man, now we're going to put a run together, just miss the playoffs, and draft 12th overall instead of 4th!
  6. The Toronto media is funny, they're making a big deal that the Leafs, "won the Centennial Classic", like it was a huge achievement or something, and it's going to be remembered for the next 100 years. The reality is, it was a home game in January.
  7. Leaf fans on facebook are complaining about Draper. That's the way him, Maltby, and Holmstrom played, it was their job to be annoying. He did that again today.
  8. Gotta do what you gotta do.
  9. Eat that Roberts!
  10. Get him Draper!
  11. I don't get it either. The Tigers aren't hurting the Red Wings. What's going on here is our Franchise players are retiring (Lidstrom and Datsyuk), or on their last legs (Zetterberg). The reason why we have a lot 3rd and 4th line guys, is making the playoffs the last 25 years, and drafting in the bottom 3rd of the first round, or trading our #1 pick to help win another cup. The best thing for this team right now is to miss the playoffs for a few years and draft our future stars.
  12. I don't think anyone is to blame, it's just 25 years of making the playoffs, and low draft picks, is coming back to haunt us. Also, if it wasn't for Datsyuk and Zetterberg becoming great players despite being drafted so low, this rebuild would have probably happened in 2004. Unless we found two more diamonds in the ruff, again, a rebuild was going to happen once Lidstrom, Datsyuk, and Zetterberg retired. We didn't get franchise players in the draft in the later rounds, so it's time to rebuild.
  13. Right. I'll just tell them how much success I've seen (2 lifetimes worth, already), and that I can handle a few years of missing the playoffs, so we can reload and go for more Champions. I'll embarrass, and insult them in a subtle way.
  14. I became a Wings fan as a kid in the late 1980's, so I've been around for all the fun. With reality setting in, that the playoff streak will end, and we need to rebuild, I've been thinking, I really can't ask for anymore from this team. I've seen it all! I've seen more then 2 lifetimes of success, and despite something out of my control, I still have more then half my life to live. I'm actually looking forward to a few years of high level draft picks, so we can reload and win more Championships. Right, if there was a team that was bought in the early 2000's, it was the Leafs.
  15. I know when the Wings are officially eliminated from the playoffs, the morons I know who cheer for the Leafs will try and give me a hard time. I am however looking forward to a few years of high draft picks to rebuild the team.
