:rolleyes:

Are you kidding?

We still have to battle to get into the playoffs at all, and you're already talking about hoping that we'll finish 5th. We're like at least ten points behind 5th if not fifteen points behind.


As I said earlier, we're finishing anywhere from 7-9, and I'll take anything but 9.


Let me just sit back and appreciate this right here. GMR in his typically dickish attitude decides to rolls his eyes and be a dick but still be completely wrong. Awesome. Wanna start a discussion about enforcers now too?

It's not unfathomable that we could catch Colorado and LA, even Phoenix depending on how they finish the season. 15 more points would mean we'd be 1 point behind San Jose and leading the division.

They have Stanley Cup Champion Tomas Kopecky.

I saw it on their website at the beginning of the season, in big letters: The Chicago Blackhawks welcome Marion Hossa and Stanley Cup Champion Tomas Kopecky.

He hasn't had his annual season-ending injury yet. That's how he wins cups. We must hope he stays healthy or we are screwed.

/goofiness


You forgot to mention that they also have a stanley cup choker.

:lol:

:thumbup:

my thoughts exactly. He makes a statement, someone then refutes his statement with fact, and then he dismisses it by saying "after the loss to Calgary last week, everyone said we were done blah blah blah". Heaven forbid you be wrong just once. I still think it's very reasonable we could grab the 5 spot, especially if we stay hot.

And 3 points out of 9th.

Last week, after losing to Calgary people here were saying it's over, and now after beating Calgary, we're looking at the number 5 seed. Very comical.

The problem here is you're pretending two different subsets of fans are the same group. There are plenty of people who were predicting doom, gloom, and no playoffs. Whatever. There were others, like myself, who said to keep the faith, we'll be just fine. And so far, we are just fine. I'm not saying we'll take the 5 seed, I'm saying it's only a few points away AND THE NUMBER YOU HAVE GIVEN US WAS FLAT OUTf****** WRONG. Stop deflecting, man up, and admit you were either wrong or abusing hyperbole like a redheaded stepchild.

So, I was wrong about the numbers. Big freaking deal guys. :rolleyes: Just for you Louisville.

My point was not to overreact about how high we can finish. Let's just be happy to finish in the top 8. I'll take that at this point the way this season has gone. It's unlikely that we can finish as high as 5th or even 6th.

A positive from this arguably negative season. Every year there is a lower seed team that is poised to make some noise, not necessarily a dark horse, but a lower seed that will cause trouble. Last year it was the Ducks as GMR pointed out. I am happy to say that team will be the Red Wings this season. We all know that this team is not a 7th or 8th seed and that is obviously why the Hawks would rather play someone else in the first round :). Paraphrasing the words of Kris Draper in 1998, we had been knocking on the front door for the past few of years, this year we are going to try sneaking in the back (even though the "back" was 3rd in the West then). And we all know what happened!

I don't sense fear from them at all.I think they respect the Wings,they may hate us a tad but also respect us at the same time.I have the utmost respect for these 2 fine young gentlemen.They're great hockey players on a good team.If they were on our team we'd love em.I think they're going to be stars in this league for years to come.Good for them.

Yeah except one of these fine young millionaires likes to f*** with Cabbies trying to eek out a living. I'll pass on Citizen Kane.
Are you kidding? Block you? And miss watching you stumble around the forum looking for an argument like a dog sniffing butts? It would be like turning off a bad episode of Jerry Springer. You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just... can't... help... it...

The interview was surprisingly enjoyable. Toews seems like a class act and Kane actually came across like a solid kid. I can't wait for the day when neither one of them look pubescent, though.

Blackhawks aren't really scared to play us just they probably know that if there is going to be an upset we will be the team to upset someone. It would be nice to see the Hawks get upset by us but I am not sure if we will even be playing them in the first round.

Not sure about Toews or Kane, but Quenneville's pants smell like fecal matter.

What the hell are you reading. We are 6 points out of fifth place Colorado is in 5th with 86 points and we have 80. Both teams have played the same number of games.

Are all of your posts so completely wrong?

Howard will suck

Lilja will never play again

Holmstrom should hang it up

Ericsson will be great this year

The Wings will miss the playoffs

Reasons that I don't take many of the posters on here seriously.

Well, Howard was a big ? since he barely had much NHL experience before this season. Thankfully he has pretty much proven everybody wrong. I would pay you $10 though if you would've predicted this to happen though.

It was quite possible that Lilja might not play again. Nothing was heard new of his condition until about a week or so before he finally got cleared to play again.

And it still might be entirely possible that the Wings still miss the playoffs, even though they greatly improved their chances Monday night. Almost as much as possible as them getting up to a 5 seed which GMR rolled his eyes like a smart allec at.

Way to go though with things that haven't nothing to do with the topic at hand though and the holier than thou attitude. Makes you look real good... :huh: :unsure:

I wonder if people forget sometimes that everyone. everywhere. always. has. access.
to what we type on the interwebs. I guess it's relatively easy to forget that it's not a peer to peer closed conversation.

or people just don't give a crap.
