If I were a Redwings fan I'd have a lot of confidence going up against Vancouver. Wings have the mystique, the experience and proven playoff performers. Sure they have a no-name Goalie, but Luongo has STUNK (believe me I've been watching) since before the Olympics.
He's head phucked right now, and if I've learned anything being a Canuck fan for 20 years, if something can go wrong it will.
Zetterberg and Datsyuk will own the Canuck defense. It might be a shootout series and the Canucks COULD win it, but if I were betting I'd put my money on Lidstrom any day.
Just my opinion, not trying to put down my team. I just have a lot of respect for the Wings (and I think players do to). Warranted (this season) or not, they have a a reputation for getting it done and that can affect anyone's psychological approach to playing them.
