Yea, We'll do the same after next game. Nashville doesn't play, and we'll beat Chicago.

I actually think this is a GREAT thing, hmmm go figure a Wings team that won't have Number one locked up with three weeks to go. Meaningful March games = playoff readiness! Bring it On Nashville !!!!!! sly.gif

You're overreacting. Who cares about the power rankings? It seems like the teams that are underestimated are the ones that have been advancing in the playoffs anyway. I don't know why you're upset over the use of "leapfrogging". I've heard them use that before, usually when the other team is idle. Kind of like playing leapfrog, one person has to sit still tongue.gif That wasn't a special article for the Preds, it was the game recap.

You're definitely overreacting. Simmer down.

I think the back and forth grind with Nashville will either get us mentally ready for the playoffs or wear us down to the point that we're useless starting round 1

Seriously, this is nothing that I'm losing sleep over. It'd be nice to claim the top spot for the playoffs, I don't care of the Wings track record in recent playoffs because of it, it should be a goal (not the ultimate though obviously) to better position themselves in the playoffs. I don't see the Wings going any worse than 4th, and with the way some of the middle-of-the-pack teams are struggling right now, I'm not just flipping out in fear of playing one team over the other. I'm not trying to say to take the competition lightly, not at all, but you see what I mean...

I say we let Nashville have the division. I'd rather go in rested and against SJ or Dallas, than go in beat up against some team that has scrapped, clawed and been red hot for the last month of the season. If Nashville bombs, sure I'd take it. Otherwise, I think we should be content with 4-5.

I'm sure there are a lot of people that would like to see some new blood on top, so there could be a little of that in the article, but I didn't really see anything crazy here.

Like a lot of you, I'm happy that we have a challenge to keep us occupied and playing sharp. I really don't even care if we win the division.

Is this thread really necessary? We're all aware of such. Who the hell cares? We have a game in hand. Beating Chicago puts us back in first. Will a thread be started for everytime the Conference or Division lead is switched? Because if thats the case we're going to have a good 20 new threads about this from now until the end of the season.

we will be mentally ready, the last few years we wrapped everything up early and took a 2 week break and it bit us in the ass, this push to the end will have us playing playoff hockey 2 weeks before the playoffs start. We are not as old as we used to be with us losing stevie and shanny and gaining flipper and rex. we will be rip roaring ready to go come playoff time.
