I was so F-in pissed last night listening to Hockey Night In Canada radio program on Sirius radio. The host (name is escaping me?) and Craig Simpson both predicted that the Wings are almost a lock for a first round playoff exit. They went on about it for over three minutes. Said the Wings puck possesion style isn't effective in a best of seven series. Said they are small, and not strong on the puck. Not enough offense and if they have any hope of getting through the first round, they'll "HAVE TO" pick up a major second line scorer like a Mats or Hossa.....if not...they're easy pickings.
And of course they went on about how the Wings standard MO is to have a great regular season and "never" show up in the playoffs....and get this.."it's almost as if Detroit plays hockey for the Presidents trophy and nothing else."
I almost drove right of the road I was so disturbed by this commentary. I'm mean....AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE?? Have we not won three cups in the past decade. Yes, we've stumbled in past years getting through the playoff's....IT'S THE FREAKIN NHL, EVERY TEAM HAS A STABLE OF WORLD CLASS PLAYERS WHO ARE PLAYING AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL!!!! YOU'RE NOT GOING TO WIN EVERY YEAR!!! And didn't we come basically a bad puck bounce away from winning the Western conference last year, and lost to the eventual Stanley Cup champions??
I'm convinced that the national hockey press LOVES to bash and propogate against the Wings and it pisses me off cause it usually is just general statements that if looked at closely, aren't really accurate.
GO WINGS MOTHER-F--KERS!!!! LET'S BRING THIS MOTHER-F--KING CUP BACK HOME TO DETROIT THIS YEAR. I'M SICK AND TIRED OF THIS s***. I'M SICK AND TIRED OF NOT BEING IN THE CUP F-ING FINALS. WE CANNOT TOLERATE THIS F--KING BULLs***...WE ARE THE GODDAM DETROIT REDWINGS AND ENOUGH IS ENOUGH...WE CAN OWN ANY TEAM FOR 10 GAMES IF OUR TEAM GETS AFTER IT. I WANT THE BLOOD OF EVERY s*** BAG TEAM WHO STANDS IN THE WINGS WAY TO CUP THIS YEAR.
ok..i'm done. have a good day.
