If the wings gets Eliminated by the Sharks....
Posted 03 May 2010 - 10:09 PM
The redwings have made it to the playoffs every single year since I was born in a salary caped league, with 6 cup appearances and won it 4 times. I realistically cannot expect them to be any more consistent, win or loss I'll always cheer for the wings and watch all the playoff hockey I can squeeze in.

you make a valid point, sir! while i'm one of those who will continue to watch regardless, i should throw in the addendum that it'll be much easier to pull myself away from a game or two for a nice long night ride.
As much as i love hockey, I generally would rather do something myself than watch other people do something.
I hate that the playoffs are this time of year because this is the meat of the white water kayak season. I'll schedule as much around the Wings as I can. But if they do not move on to the 3rd round, I'll be paddling, mountain biking, enduro riding and taking overland 4x4 camping trips. I'll mountain bike tonite (right after this post) then catch whatever is left of the Nuck/Hawk game. I'll be planted for the Wing game tomorrow, but will be enduro riding Wednesday after work. Thusday nite is river paddling nite, Friday is mountain biking, the weekends are trips or local rides, or whatever.
Generally speaking, if someone knocks the Wings out, then thats the team I want to win the Cup. If a player choses to leave the Wings, THe team he goes to is the team I definitely do not want to win. I don't want Hossa to win; I'd be ok with Sammy winning it again. I'd like Boston to win; don't want Crosby to win again, or even get to the finals for that matter unless it's to lose against the Red Wings.
But I want Todd Bertuzzi to hoist the Stanley Cup this year. It's been a rough road for him these last few years and I'd like to think he found his slavation in the Winged Wheel.
i don't ride enduro (always wanted to learn), but it doesn't matter what you ride...so long as you're riding!!
that being said, i still believe we'll rise from this funk and keep it going for another deep run. so my night rides will have to be on non-wing nights.
i think, therefore i'm rare.

The question doesn't even make sense since we'll win the series.
just like we were guaranteed to win game 2?
edit: no i wont watch unless there's a matchup i care about.. which probably wont happen if we are not involved

I'd continue to watch, but with much diminished interest and enthusiasm and definitely on HockeyStreams so I don't factor into the NHL's ratings.
I may watch sporadically on hockey streams as well - though I am pretty cheesed about the state of NHL officiating, so I may just bow out completely.

If the wings' gets eliminated by the sharks are you going to follow every other series with much interest and enthusiasm?
Personally I think I couldn't watch any more, would feel too angry and s*** and it's not worth staying up til early morning to watch a team you're not supporting, I feel like I will need a break just like the wings do, too...
What will you do?
Don't worry,that not will be our problem!!! The Sharks will be eliminated in 6 or 7
