Hate to disagree with The Franz but I can't say I agree.

everytime they talk to him about a hit he took, he seems to think the guy should be banned from the NHL.

Wish someone would clean that f***** Doan's clock.... That ***** should be Kronwalled. He deserves to be knocked into next year for saying that "it couldn't hurt" to take out a player like Franzen.

Kronwall was just trying to show Phoenix they weren't going to be rattled by plays like that.

Bertuzzi did try to fight Doan, but honestly I'm betting he's saving it up for games in Phoenix in case Detroit needs a jump.

I can accept no ejection from the game but that hit should have at least been a penalty, four minutes for blood.

Defensemen TOI

Game 1
Stuart - 23:25
Kronwall - 21:21
Rafalski - 20:16
Ericsson - 19:18
Lidstrom - 19:16
Salei - 16:29

Game 2
Rafalski - 22:17
Kronwall - 21:52
Stuart - 21:24
Ericsson - 21:23
Lidstrom - 19:16
Salei - 13:48

Is it odd to anyone else that #5 ranks, well, #5 among defensemen TOI in both Game 1 and 2?


I like it. Rest Lidstrom until we really, really need him. Keeping his TOI low while the team is playing so good is great in the early rounds, keeps him rested.

A few observations:
1......Why are people upset with Doan's play and comments?.........if he was a Wing and did that in a game alot of people in here would be creaming their jeans.
2......All the conspiracy theories about the refs being "anti-Wing" are bulls***. The notion that the league wants new blood in the cup is insane.......besides, the Wings aren't exactly like the Lakers going for a three peat. They haven't been overexposed. (Not to mention that they are the most popular team in the States.........so wouldn't their success be good financially for the NHL?)
3......It's time to get off Howard's ass.........from my observations the goals he's allowing, for the most part, are more due to defensive f***-ups than his playing poorly.
4.....Datsyuk might have the most skilled hands any of us have ever seen.
and finally

........Grey Goose makes a great martini.

This has probably already been mentioned, but how fitting would it be if Detroit eliminated Phoenix in its final game ever? It all comes full circle (remember that Winnipeg's final game was being eliminated by Detroit).

Can there be like a Jay-Z Trophy for Biggest Pimping in the League so they can just give it to Datsyuk every year? Dude's like a living, breathing bitchslap to the rest of the NHL.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.

They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

Actually, I was hoping for Doan to be Kronwalled. Not calling Kronwall a ***** lol.

Just finished watching the game. Amazing first half, I don't think I have ever seen a player completely dominate at both ends of the ice like Pav did today. Holy crap that was impressive.

Wish we were able to maintain discipline at the end but at least we held them off. There were a mix of good calls and bad, like usual. I think the worst call was Helm's penalty, did they even give and explanation for that one? 2 minutes for hitting? Strange call.

So happy with the 2-0 series lead! Go Wings!!

Ps. I hate to say it, but Franzen sounds like such a wimp in interviews after incidents like today's. If I remember correctly, he had a similar reaction with the whole Orpik situation in the preseason. Just move on and make them pay on the scoreboard, let the league handle any aftermath. In my opinion, the refs made the right call.

This comment left at TSN was too great not to share. Not sure if 'DetroitRiver' is one of our own:

Why is Abby playing on the 2nd line instead of Helm?

Helm had a great finish to the season and is now being bogged down by playing with Draper and Eaves on the 4th line. I don't think Abby is a better 2nd line center than Helm.


Neither are better than...

I agree with all your comments but the Grey Goose since I am not a martini man, I'll take your word for it.

As far as the conspiracy theory, I don't buy it either. BUT, by the league calling more penalties, they essentially make the game more unpredictable for both teams. This is good for the weaker teams like Phoenix because on paper, they have no chance. Throw in more penalty calls and it can only help them. This is not a conspiracy against the Wings or any other team but the affect is more unpredictable outcomes and that is what the league wants - more exciting, unpredictable games. Unfortunately, it is corrupting the nature of the games. That's my 2 cents worth.
Do or do not. There is no try

Better than having to face the realization that Nick may not be that good anymore.



Sarcasm right? Nick is, according to every sports columnist on the net, in the running for another Norris Trophy. Not that good?

Phoenix will not go down without a fight. Normally I would say just take one game at the opposing arena, but since half of Jobbing.com arena will be cheering for the Wings, it would be best if the Wings can just win the next two games. The Wings need as much rest as possible between series, and I just don't see Phoenix hanging with the Wings 5 on 5.
Playoff Time. Let's Go Red Wings!!!!
