Each of Detroit's losses were one goal games. Could have gone either way.

Two teams that have an elite goaltender. Think about it. The team is slumping, obviously, and they faced two great goaltenders.



Lol... one of the top teams in the top conference. Ok.



Really? Riding the top 3 spot in the conference all season is somehow just as frustrating being on the bubble all season? This just keeps getting better.



Teams in the NHL lose. Sometimes <gasp>, they lose two in a row. You sound like a Chicago fan.


yeah I've been a chicago fan since's Fedorov's rookie season amigo.

Team lose all the time yes all the time. You can't win every game. You seem to have overlooked who we played against in the first 1/4 of the season. You sound like a Pittsburgh fan....

Also I think it takes balls coming onto this forum and looking at this season and saying our team is slightly overrated. I read a lot nhl forums and the genuine consenus it that we are overrated this season considering that expectations were very high. Yes injures have happened and it hurts. I'm finding that our team is a bit overrated. Vancouver and Philly are deeper teams IMO. Considering we were picked by a lot of people to win the cup this year. It could happen. It's all an opinion of course. And lets look out for San Jose which is getting hot again after they're sluggish start. Bottom line is 1-8 going into the playoffs imo will be a dogfight more so than any previous years....

How can a team with 20 consecutive playoff appearances be overrated ? Detroit will be a contender for the cup every year, regardless if your opinion is that Vancouver and Philly are deeper.

Oh yeah and Mason and Rinne are not elite goaltenders. So then how do you rank Howard then, Godly? Cause he ain't even close but that has a lot to do with team defense. Whoever stated that is spot on.

Ya... that's called 'distribution of talent due to the salary cap'. I would think that a long time fan would recognize this.

Talking about our team THIS year. Yes we are favorites every year. I just think we are hyped up to much especially THIS year. That is all...

I rank Howard below both of them currently.

Where were we when we had all our players and were healthy ? miles ahead of everyone else in the standings, just so happens we lost our players when the hard part of the schedule was coming up. No doubt in my mind every year I know as myself, a Wing fan that Detroit is going to win the cup. The context of your post is 'you think' which im sure another 30+ Wings fans disagree with.

Really? Fair enough. You should be our team president in hockey operations then.

Absolutely nothing.

Ok. At least you didn't say I'm wearing a prom dress or some s***. I love getting other die-hard Wings fans stirred up.

Currently coaching a JV Highschool team in Minnesota. Does that count? Big deal right. Done with you bro. Take care!

It is a big deal. I'm very proud of the teams I've run and coached in the past.

And I never said you were wearing a prom dress. Reading comp. is tech on message boards. You act like the Wings being favored to win the Cup is some new development. Lol.

I'm sorry, but the people saying that they are bored watching the Wings and are watching other teams just sound like spoiled, entitled brats. Jmo.

This entitled brat is just speaking her mind. Sorry you don't like it :rolleyes:. Maybe you should start watching other games besides just the Wings. I am first, and foremost, a hockey fan and second a Wings fan.

Had no idea you were so well versed in my hockey watching habits. I don't care enough to like it or not like it. Just saying it sounds like whining.

"I'm gonna watch another team cuz THIS team is boring!" Hahaha...

I'd say Rinne is an elite goalie. At least so far this year.

I'd take Rinne over Howard every day of the week.

.931 save percentage, 2.04 GAA and 4 shutouts. Not to mention, Rinne doesn't get the luxury of having an offense that scores 4-5 goals most nights to bail out subpar goaltending.

Rinne is definitely elite this season. Howard has shown no signs of performing anywhere near Rinne's level since last March.
