I think it's more than plausible for the Wings to pull an upset against any four of those teams in the first round. Though I think we'd match up better against Phoenix or Vancouver to me our positioning is less important than resting Howard and gearing for the playoffs now that we've clinched a spot.

Because when they play like they should, like during most of the 07/08 season, and especially in that playoff they are the most fantastic team...


ahh so you only like the Wings when they are good.

that clears up everything. You're a bandwagon. why am I surprised?
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

You shouldn't be. He's completely and utterly spoiled and he showed up immediately after they won in '08. He has been pissing, moaning and whining about any non-dominating performance ever since he got here.

Yeah good luck with that... 1st series against chicago or a super hot vancouver team with the massive travelling and s***...


Superhot Vancouver? Didn't they just get shelled 8-3?

Chicago who have a starting goalies worse than our backup?

Yes, very frightening.

I would take Niemi over both Howard and Osgood based on how they played recently.

3 months is a long break. People make to big of a deal out of it.


I agree with you. Yeah they played a lot of hockey, but it ain't like they get 2 weeks off. They get 3 months off. lol. The human body recovers quick. Mental stress is gone in that amount of time.

I think whoever we play will give us a tough matchup.

I mean, the only team we've completely owned all year out of the playoff teams is San Jose, and I don't think that would be an easy series for us by any stretch.

No one wants to play the Wings, but that doesn't mean we have some clear advantage over anybody.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I'm not picking their poison (I will never pick a preferred playoff opponent out of superstition) but I will say this:

I think I'd rather face San Jose or Chicago or Vancouver right off the hop before they get into a groove and save Phoenix and weaker teams later when a skilled, steady team can beat them (See Detroit vs. Chicago last playoffs).

I am just happy they made it. Getting into the playoffs was a damn good accomplishment with the way the year has been and battling like they did. Even if they lose in the first round I wont be too mad.

His last one was absurd. For his playoff roster he took out Miller, the guy who has really solidified the PK.

I am hoping for 7th seed and a first round matchup with the Hawks. It is easy travel, Hawks are hurting in goal and on defence, and Quenneville has a horrible playoff record.... especially against the Wings!!!!

Wings in four games against the Hawks and make it a turkey shoot for Hossa!
Defense and goaltending win championships!!!

I'm pretty new here and I already don't like Mindfly. What the hell is the point of all that negative thinking.

realistically we're the hottest team down this final stretch.

realistically we just clinched a playoff birth with a season that has had just about everyone on the roster on long term injury reserve at some point or another, largely all at the same time.

realistically the Wings are as dangerous as anyone in the playoffs.

You can take him ....... out to dinner after the Hawks lose in the first round because they give up 5 goals a game.

Depending on the last game against CHI, at the moment we're winning in all mini-series against the top 4 West teams (except CHI where it's tied if I'm not mistaken). Considering we haven't had a great year, this is promising now we're hitting some form. I'll take any but strangely not the Coyotes.

Agree. It does say a lot when possibly our fittest player all season was Todd Bertuzzi!
