I don't hate them at all either they are a young, really good, respectful team. Only ones I don't like are Fiddler & Doan.

PHX is my second favorite team since their Logo change. Plus I've always like how Doan plays.

I like seeing PHX do well, just not as much so against my Wings. I'm going for the wings till death, but if PHX takes us out I can be happy with extending our playoff streak and hoping for PHX to go all the way.

I think its always better to get beat by the champions than someone who just made it further than you. So i'll be hoping they make it all the way if they take us out.


As for hating teams I still hate the PENS, I always will hate the PENs. I almost hate them more than I hated the Avs, and its hard to hate Anahiem when I live 15mins from Honda Center.

My thoughts exactly. Doan is everything a hockey player should be. He's honest, he works hard, and he's willing to get dirty.

Is that everything a hockey player should be?

What about skill, intelligence, hockey sense, scoring ability, courage, skating ability, mental toughness and tactical knowledge?

I think Doan is far from a complete hockey player. I'm not saying he lacks everything above, but those are IMO maybe the most important qualities. I of course didn't list toughness etc. because I know you already kinda mentioned them.

Those things go without saying - all of those things are, at least to a certain level, results of honesty and hard work. There are very few if any great hockey players who got to be great hockey players without busting their asses in practice and honestly critiquing their own game and working on its weaknesses.
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

I started liking Shane Doan when he was dedicating his shoot out goals to his daughter during the All-Star game.. but his hits make me hate him.. and his potential to eliminate my favorite team.

I'm a sore loser, I know. :(

Of course you need to work hard and you can improve certain aspects by doing that. I'd also like to know how much it is about talent and how much it is about hard work, too bad neither of those things can be measured.

But I though you meant hard work on the ice.

I've seen the Coyotes play a lot this year, it's impossible to not admire that team. I thought they had heart before, now they are playing without their top 2 wingers, Doan and Upshall and are still competing at a incredibly high level. Amazing.

Also, reason# 12,323 why Brian Burke sucks, not picking Yandle for the American olympic team.

I hate them and can't wait for this series to end so I don't have to see their dumb jobber faces anymore.

Obviously, you guys are all bandwagoners since you don't hate Phoenix enough. :P Some fans you are.

^^ This.

Like them? Well yes they ain't Anaheim Pittsburgh or the Sharks but Phoenix is just boring to me. Let's see: they were schooled out the rink twice, got lucky twice and deserve the other win. But they are just too blah for me. If not for Schneider shooting over and over and over again, just what will anyone remember about these guys once we open the 2nd round on Friday??

And Doan is a beast of a player; the only guy really worth watching but because he wears a Coyote on his chest everyones blinded by that. He's everything you want in a player. Cmon.

Much respect for Bryz, Doan & coach Tippett.

But I can not tolerate their "fans" or the city of Phoenix. They don't come close to deserving a team, much less one as good as the yotes. I still think they will eventually be relocated.

What I really like about the Coyotes is that they didn't become good just by accumulating top 5 picks like Pittsburgh,Chicago,and Washington. They made shrewd pickups(Bryzgalov),inexpensive signings(Vrbata, Fiddler,etc), and some great late round picks(Yandle, Michalek).

I am starting to respect their team, but I am losing respect for their fans. I look forward to the day when the yotes move.

I can't understand the Doan hate, I'd friggin LOVE to see him wearing the Winged Wheel. That guy's got tons of heart.

The yotes are playing at the top of their game, which ultimately has showed they just are a hair short on being great. The Wings turn it on and they're easily 30% "more" than the yotes, and it's showed a couple times in this series. The problem is that the Wings appear to be disinterested or just not really trying some games.

Me too. Would be excited to get Doan as a Wing.

I feel bad for the guy. Hasn't seen the postseason since 02 (tells you how spoiled we are). Could have run our goalie but purposely overskated him and took himself out - of the series. Yeah he was laying the hard hits in the first few games - but hell i was wishing the WINGS were doing that.

You are right the Wings are only showing up in spurts - for some reason (?). Too many years of going deep is catching up - sadly. I hope the Wings pull it out tomorrow, but if not I got no problem with the Yotes and will pull for them to beat the Sharks...
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!

Doan would be my favorite player if he was on Detroit, but for now he can f*** off. I dont dislike the Coyotes like I do the Ducks and Pens, but I'll be glad to be done with them after Game 7 and there fans.

Yeah, if the desert dogs pull out a win tomorrow, I'll have to root for them the rest of the way.

BUT,

I still think the Wings will come out on top, even if it's just barely.

GO WINGS!
