Finally hit me this morning and it hurts, but knowing we'll probably be better next year makes it better. A healthy Wings team with a couple tweaks next year is just what the doctor ordered.

I miss football.

Whatever, they should have won eight - at least.

I wish we didn't have all these damn European players who don't care about Stanley.


Who are you? Go home and get off these boards.

Hossa is a human who let pressure get to him along with every other player. Doesnt mean he isnt a great hockey player still and I sure hope we sign him long term in the off season...

Upset, disappointed, very angry it was the pens, but whatever, in roster terms, this is the best thing that could've happened!

Hollnd will now be forced to evaluate this team and make changes. Hossa is supposedly all but signed, so that doesn't leave much unless (and since we've lost the Cup, this canbe a little easier)

Trade one Stuart, Kronwall or Rafaski (I know, No Trade Clause, but that can be wroked around)
Somehow convince Maltby and Draper to retire.

Let Hudler pursue his options elsewhere, part ways with Sammy, Chelios, McCarty, Conlkin (due to Howard havingto clear waivers.)

re-sign Kopecky, Hossa & Leino. Bring up Helm, Abdelkader, Ericsson permanently. Maybe I am the minority, but we need (and needed) Aaron Downey up here this playoff and next season. Re-sign him....

However it needs to be done, but some changes are needed. Say what you want about getting as far a we did, but we got kicked around by Anaheim.

If we cannot trade one of those D-Men, then we are in a world of hurt (unless Draper and Maltby retire.) That would still alllow us to sign Hossa, Kopecky, Leino & Downey and bring up Howard, Helm, Ericsson & Abdelkader.

That is the reason we lost, whatever they say, our old men were tired. Draper, Maltby, Holmstrom, Lidstrom, Rafalski, Sammy. That is why I am mostly mad, sad, etc... I know we won with that lineup last time and that was pretty much the reason Babcock didn't tweak it too much, but NOW is the time for NEW hunger. Time to give the Griffins their entire season! Put Meech in there permanently.

Maybe Holmstrom will retire too, maybe we can actually trade one of D-Men for a player instead of picks, but whatever, I am sad,but excited to see what comes next! Go Wings! Bring on draft day!

Oddly enough, right after it happened, I wasn't feeling all too bad. Had some brief light-hearted conversations with both Wings and Penguins fans for a brief while after the game which kept me thinking about it.

Went home, I woke up early in the morning and couldn't fall back asleep and started thinking about it and was a bit bitter.

I'm bummed still but life goes on, I'm dealing, got plenty other stuff that's bugging me right now more important than watching my favorite sports team so...

I know we didn't win the Cup.
But I can't help but be proud of this team. We nearly pulled off a repeat (nearly impossible in today's era).
And if it weren't for some of the horrific injuries our star players had I believe we would have done it.

Give me even a 70% Lidstrom and Datsyuk for all 7 games, and we win this thing.

With the exception of one or two players, I think everyone gave 100% and did all they could. We were just too banged up and physically & mentally exhausted.

I hope the boys can rest up and try to enjoy their summer. It'll be a long road next year after playing so much hockey over the past 3 seasons.

See you in September!

it sucks when you see the Pens do all the things with the cup so far. Quickly turned to the Tigers but the Tigers played the Pirates in Pittsburgh this weekend and what do they do sunday...they honor their pengiuns and show off the cup. AGGGGHHH!!

I got one obnoxious co-worker at work who repeatedly reminds me that he picked the Pens to win and that last friday's game was the best hockey game he ever saw. I gave him little credit and said "Pittsburgh played good, they deserved the cup and crap.....the puck just didnt go in for the wings". But everyday he reminds me about the Pens and how great Sidney is. I think its only fair that by the end of the summer, I at least beat him up once.

It'll be easier to have perspective as soon as we see how the Pens defend it all. I don't think any team will get as close to repeating as the Wings did.

Yes i do. By Port Huron.

Everyone at work wants to beat him up anyway so I would probably get people to look the other way.

We got to wear our hockey shirts last friday. He was the only one in a pens sweater.

I am just happy that most of the bruising of my knuckles went down before work this morning. That brick wall at the bar really knew how to take a punch after that second goal was scored... ranting.gif

I couldn't stop crying. I cried at the restaurant I watched the game at, I cried twice when I got home, took a shower to calm down, cried 2 more times after that.

The hardest part was being so close to a repeat and losing it. I wanted them to win it for guys who wouldn't be back, like Cheli, Kopy, and probably Conks, Sammy, and Hudler. Plus I felt SO bad for the whole Hossa thing. Even if he didn't play well he's a sweet guy and it broke my heart to see him embarrassed like that. That was the one thing I was praying wouldn't happen

But I'm better now. Still not OK, just better than before.

I haven't been able to watch ESPN or any sports related channel all weekend, b/c I just wasn't ready to see anything cup related. It's nice to know there are some other ladies out there that cried as well. I was pretty embarrassed in myself, that I burst into tears later that night. I have a feeling all the drinks had something to do with it, but I'm just totally bummed out over this.

I'm proud of our team. It was a great year, but we just came up short.
