Ill do one better. Depends on face-offs AND officiating.
Honestly though, I think we would have pushed the Hawks to game 6 or 7, but would have lost in the end. This year just wasnt our year from the start.
I'll buy that...

I think it would have depended on what version of the Wings showed up to play. I think it would have been a tighter series than the SJ/Chi series and the Det/SJ series, but I feel we still would have had a better chance of losing than winning. Chicago is very determined this year, and it shows it their ability to hang around and grind out a win however they can.
Saying that, though, I felt the Sharks looked extremely slow and could not take advantage of any of the opportunities they were given. The didn't play completely horribly, but for much of what I saw, their being out of position and not jumping on second and third chances cost them those goals that might have won a game for them. In a lot of ways, I felt I was re-watching the Det/SJ series but with the Sharks playing worse than the Wings.
Like others have said, I'm kind of glad that we didn't play Chicago this year and have that possibility of getting beaten by them. We weren't showing our true colors in this year's playoffs, and I like the fact that if Chicago does go on to win the Cup, there is still that little asterisk in the back of Chicago's mind that says: *But we didn't have to go through Detroit to get here.
Next year will definitely be interesting. And I can't wait.
So, you would rather the Redwings lose in the second round than have gone deep into the playoffs and lost to Chicago? I do not understand that logic one bit. Getting to the 3rd round is an accomplishment in and of itself. Losing in the first or second round is forgettable at best.

I feel it would have been a series in which we had a shot to beat them...looking at the regular season matchups it was 3-3...though chicago's 3 wins were against more so our AHL team...so in essence our "A" squad was 3-0 against them
Well, our AHL squad owned San Jose too in the regular season.

I'm glad they didn't have to play us to get through the playoffs, because it does leave doubt in their minds on whether they can really beat us or not.
This was so funny I had to set it as my sig.
