To be completely honest, if this is all the Sharks have, you may want to revise your prediction to: Wings in 6. Perhaps 5. Definitely not 7.

Make no mistake - we won in Calgary, so we can definitely win in San Jose.

To be perfectly honest here -- this is NOT all the Sharks have. Not by a long shot. Yes, they've outplayed the Wings for the first ten minutes of the first two games. BUT, the Sharks have yet to play a solid 60 minute effort.

Perhaps you can win in San Jose, that remains to be seen. However, I do not count my team out. I think they will pick up their play in front of the home crowd and put in a more consistent and complete effort for the entirety of the game. Winning in San Jose may be more difficult than you think.

We'll find out tomorrow.

Oh absolutely.

Neither team has played to their full potential, not yet. I'd like to see both teams bring their "A" game tomorrow night for some high-tempo exciting hockey. And I'd like to see the Sharks win. wink.gif

Oh, please. Just because the Wings have a storied history it doesn't mean that the Sharks aren't a team to be reckoned with. rolleyes.gif Come back and chat with me in another 65 years when the Sharks franchise is as old as Detroit's is right now and then we can swap stories about the good old days when the Shark Tank was a feared place to play. wink.gif

loo, you're a great fan of Dom's. The guy can be criticized though.

And not all criticism defaults to being "unfair". It is possible to believe in someone and point out their flaws. This is a very good thing, actually.

Agreed, the all or nothing thing is a bit silly. This isn't like Anakin Skywalker saying you are with me or you are my enemy, and this definitely isn't Bush's war speech against terrorism for pete's sake saying you are with us or against us. (please let's not turn this into a political thread laugh.gif)

You can completely be supporting somebody but pointing out their flaws to try to make them better.

Happens at my job all the time where my boss who I directly report to is the owner for the company I work for. He'll tell me every now and then what I need to improve on, and I give him suggestions every now and then as well in the same nature if he could've done better on something. At least from my end, I enjoy that kind of support/criticism and am glad to have somebody as a boss/owner who will accept some honest criticism and doesn't act all high and mighty all the time.

Neither have the Wings. The Wings have yet to bring the physical game they brought in Calgary. They were getting 30-35 hits a night in the Calgary series. That total has dropped to about 15.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

I think it happens when people actually are homers about certain players. Bless their hearts, they mean well, but their fascination with the person sets them into a mini-Haynesbot mode to defend any speck of dust that may threaten to derail the player's rep.

It's the old "we see what we will ourselves to see". I mean, you ever see Heroes of Hockeytown around here? The guy is Bobby Lang's PR man himself, his job appointment being to always be quick to say that Lang's not understood and that the cheeseburgers ain't a big deal. His responses are like clockwork and speak always of great Czech dignity.

If you said that he doesn't do much of that at season's end however, you'd be right. It's just like a two-step: first comes disenchantment, then comes the newly beginning jobhunt. He'll be out of one soon.


No, it's definitely excitement.

Ooooooh, mahalo mahalo, I caught you on something!

You said, with playful tongue-in-cheek sarcasm, ""you don't wanna play the Sharks out there in San Jose come playoff time. San Jose is a killer hockey town...",

Hockey town? I can see the irony in that statement, especially when compared with Detroit. But why not hockey team? Wouldn't have worked! biggrin.gif

Now where'd I put my dancing jiggy emoticon?
