Yeah going to the World Series really sucks....
Opie, c'mon. The Tigers will probably
make the World Series again, or come close. Lets say they do, World Series 2 times out of 3 years. The Wings havent been to the finals since 02. I'm sorry if I believe we have the best team in the league and should be trying to win rather then rebuild.
Before I get into this why not try comparing a sport that has a real cap, instead of the fake one that the Sox and Yanks laugh at every year!!
Pretty bold prediction considering the Red Sox have the same team with better parts (Ellsbury > Crisp), the Yankees are a pitcher or two away from being great again, The Indians are still very good, and Dontrell Willis and an overweight third baseman who will have to become a 1st baseman in 2 years aren't Huge additions. They are damn good I will give you that. Cabrera can Rake make no bones about it, but he is no Brandon Inge Defensively, but hey it is just third base a throw away position.
Inge is a Dan Cleary heart and Soul kind of guy, ask the White Sox what it was like when they gave up Aaron Rowand. You can not replace those intangibles. And Cabrera is loving his money, and is overweight, third base is not where you want you version of John Kruk!
The Tigers will be in a fight to win their division let alone the AL. Hell if they were in the NL I would punch their WS ticket for you now, alas they are not and have to deal with Bos, Cle, NYY, ana los a... the friggin' Angels, and Seattle got better (they won't win s*** though).
Who in the hell said they are rebuilding, last year was supposed to be the rebuilding year and they were great. This year they are continuing to build the youth, in a cap era you need youth. It really isn't that hard of a concept, you try to win now, without losing the future.
So the tiger's probably making the WS is close enough for you, but the wings being the best team in the NHL isn't.
You confuse me, if the wings made it to the SCF last year and lost would you be saying the same thing?
But you know, why don't you and Leftwinger, dabrua, go an form you own "I was a wing's fan but my fair weather fandom in me made me turn away even though they are still the #1 team in the NHL, because I wanted another player" discussion board.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."
“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
