You've lost your mind and you don't know anything about me. I watch every game and root my ass off every night I watch. I don't see where I stated that I don't hope for the best and that I don't support the team. You and the other homers here are acting like watchdogs accussing fans of not rooting for the Wings just because we're unhappy at what went down at the deadline.

Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Such bitterness, it sounds like that other thread where someone turned in their fan club card because Fedorov wasn't brought back, and now the Wings are doomed to crash and burn... Brendan Shanahan said once on trade rumors, there was a deal that the Wings didnt make, forgot who it was, but anyways, heres the quote....

Yes. Go go defensively-pessimistic "I won't cheer for the Wings until they win it all---until that point, I'll be convincing myself and everyone else that they'll lose so that I can avoid any chance of being disappointed if that happens" team! Unite!

Hmmm we beat the Flames last year and they are about the same. We beat the Sharks and now Brian Campbell is going to suddenly have them kicking our a$$? We damn near almost beat the Ducks - and imo they have lost players since last year. OK they picked up Schneids, but lost MacDonald and Penner.

We played long series vs these teams last year - we banged them up just as much. Let's not chalk up any playoff losses until they actually happen....


Yeah, no joke. I wonder if people are just bumping this stuff from last season's posts. It's ridiculous--it looks as if they'll dredge up every last reason why we WON'T win, as if they WANT us to lose.

No it doesn't. Lidstrom, Rafalski, Cleary, and Chelios are still out.
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.

the bottom line is that we are on par with all the top teams. the only 2 teams that scare me are the ducks and the stars. we've been known to manhandle the stars so that isn't that scary and while the ducks have gotten better this year we still have a great chance to beat them

I'm pretty sure no one here is not cheering for the Wings. There are many pessimists, but that doesn't mean they're not cheering. You're still getting those two things confused.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Well, it seems as though if this team can't overcome the injuries they are going to fall down fast in the standings. Oh and get used to the calls like the one tonight against us in the San Jose game, cause it is going to happen more to us in the playoffs. It is a known fact that NHL refs have and always will hate the Detroit Red Wings. I hope they can overcome these injuries and start winning again, but they still need to somehow overcome the retarded calls made by these monkey's in stripes. I am afraid the tide has turned. In case you guys haven't noticed lately but other teams have somehow figured out to handle the ZDH line...which is a VERY VERY BAD THING sad.gif

This thread is ridiculous. You gotta know who to be upset with. It's not the same NHL it used to be. The Wings played good tonight and got screwed over.

It's basically if they're confident enough because they have the skill. These calls are going to make them think they are playing worse than they are.

Referees make bad calls against every team. The blown call tonight stinks, yes, but to think that referees have a personal vendetta against just against Detroit is going a bit too far there.

I have to agree with you. This thread was started on pure bitter opinion, and should have died before it started.
lighten up people, it's the internet!

Here here. As Wings fans, we've always known and lived by the mantra "The regular season doesn't matter." Obviously, we've historically said that to highlight the fact that our regular season success means nothing in the playoffs. This year, however, we may have to continue to cite this in reference to our lack of success. Everything starts over in April, and hopefully we can right the ship well before then.

Granted, we are still the best team in the league, as hard as that is to believe. Man, you honestly can't comprehend what a 17 point lead means until the team that had that lead takes an entire month off and still comes out on top. Redonkulous.

"I can taste another long run," Lidstrom said. "I can feel it in this room. The guys are getting that focused look in their eyes."
