The Wings won't miss the playoffs.
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 dont think they will miss the playoffs.

Four straight 50+ wins seasons, 2 straight SCF appearences, one for two, bunch of confrence finals, etc. you get the idea, and then WHAM no playoffs? I dont see it happening, they'll find a way to get it done.

Supposing they do end up missing the playoffs, what will I do? Same thing as most of you, come on here and start posting excuses and other reasons why they are golfing so early. laugh.gif

"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.

If the Wings don't make the playoffs, after the initial disappointment (which will last about 30 seconds), a big part of me will be relieved. They deserve a nice long summer. f*** the streak.

It happened to the Yankees last year, so you never know.

I'm with you. The guys who have been here for 3 or more years have to be EXHAUSTED. They've played 11 out of 12 possible playoff rounds. Short summers, little time to rest, they can't have a lot left in the tank. I'd be disappointed if they missed the playoffs, but I think it would do more good than harm.

Never. The last thing they need is another bandwagon fan.

That would work better if you were talking about the Hawks.

And to answer the thread, I'd go play some golf and ponder what kind of contract Lidstrom will be getting from the Wings.

I love seeing the Wings play in the playoffs, but it's not a necessity for my happiness.

All the things you do to me and all the things you said,
I just can't get enough.
I just can't get enough
We slip and slide and we fall in love and I just can't seem to get enough of...

If the Wings didn't make the playoffs I could enjoy watching them without the added extreme stress on my heart laugh.gif I could also be more accurate in my predictions and playoff pool stuff, as I can never bring myself to predict a Wings series loss. It actually woudn't be as bad as I would have thought coming into the season. It would suck to have the streak end, but as a Wings fan we also have excuses with the ridiculous amount of significant injuries suffered this season.

It's all purely hypothetical of course, as I fully expect the Wings to be comfortably in a playoff spot as the season winds down. Injured players will return, the team will keep playing well enough until then and will get their breaks soon enough.
