Everyone Detroit seems to haveinterest is gone.

Forsberg already burned us with a GWG. Now Guerin will burn us in the first round. Holland thinks we got better cause of getting Calder for Williams. Hope he isn't done dealing.

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Keep in mind that San Jose and Nashville had deeper systems, so it was easy for them to move young guys and picks for these rentals. Wings are in a tougher spot; small time moves like Calder might be all that's in store...

Underdog - I am not counting us out we are a pretty good team. Holland will do something else but none of these deals guarantee a winner the games will still have to be played.

Unfortunately, it looks like we're going to meet Anaheim/SJ in the first round, with a 4th/5th place finish, as we probably will NOT catch Nashville.

You people are crazy.

They don't play the game on paper.


"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

They're is by two, and we have a game in hand.

In other words, their lead is insurmountable. I'm not even sure why we try.

Okay, so if we DO make the 1st seed and DON'T lose in the 1st round for the 3rd time in 4 playoffs, can we beat Nashville, Anaheim or San Jose?

Yeah. We can also lose.

There, now I've pointed out the only two options in the universe.

I don't understand why people have given up on the Wings already. Well, their loss, I guess. Better to just hope for the best, support the team and enjoy the playoffs as we may.

Support the team, but still watch them lose. We haven't given up on the Wings, the GM has given up on the fans. Nothing brings more revenue than a High Profile signing. No offense, but I'm not running out to get my Kyle Calder jersey. Holland is an idiot.

"We were one of the teams that had the least amount of fights last year. You don't want your best players fighting. But Brendan was certainly a physical presence. Playing on Pavel Datsyuk's line, he obviously created some space for Pavel. That's something we're going to have to monitor," said Ken Holland.


Ugh.

The Wings just aren't built for the playoffs. We won it in 2002 but we were loaded then. I think he has to make a big deal. It is the same story as the last few years. We just don't have the size. Our better players get banged around in the playoffs and we are not physical enough to wear other teams down. I won't give up on them but they can't compete this year unless they do something significant. They have the worst 2nd line in the league and they are too small. Let's hope Holland does something.

Well I definatly haven't given up.

I can understand how people are worried though. Datsyuk & Zeterberg may as well paint bullseyes on their backs because every shift they will be hammered at every opprotunity. Detroit is known as a team that won't fight back physically. The Wings try to kill you on the PP. Well the PP isn't very good and their PP chances will be reduced come playoff time.

You do realize detroit is only 2 points behind nashville and 3 points behind buffalo for 1st overall in the NHL??

We're not as bad as you and some of our esteemed (cough, cough) colleagues would have us believe.

s***, for all anybody knows we could not only win the division but the President's trophy as well. Not that that means anything but it should be taken into consideration when people start painting us as a 2nd tier team.
Being a mod doesn't make you special.
