Friday night could be Lidstrom's last game ever. :o


Doubtful

He'll be more pissed than all of us combined and come back next year to prove himself and get vengeance.

(at least, I hope)

Well I dunno if this will make anyone happier but I was reading on spectors hockey that Jagr has a list of 4 teams he wants to play for... Habs, Philly, Rangers and WINGS! I am sure some of you guys dont like Jagr but how SICKKK would that be?! Just trying to think positively given the circumstances.

Anyways I just thought of something. Last year both Philly and the Wings went down 0-3 in their 2nd round series and Philly came back to win theirs. Maybe this is the Wings year to come back from theirs? That would be nice

To top it off along with Homer for next season as well.

This team will look damn near exactly the same come next season.

except lidstrom will be gone, too.

basically zero chance at a cup next year.

Helm is a perennial Selke candidate

He produced that killer instinct people said the Wings lacked, led a huge comeback season in 2007, won the Cup in '08, went to Game 7 of the finals in '09 in a series that should have resulted in a win, led a battered team to the 2nd round last season in which the series was stolen by the refs, and only this year has run into any trouble getting this team to perform. I doubt Babcock is the problem. If they are complacent and not listening to him, replace the players. Babcock is one of the best coaches in the league. You bring in some fresh faces who won't be complacent. Simple as that.


Flip, Hudler and Franzen are leaving a lot to be desired right now.

Unlike the other two, Franzen has a big contract and probably won't be moved.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Detroit needs to invent a cloning machine. Clone Datsyuk and Zetterberg five times each and clone Lidstrom five times as well then sign some amazing goalie.

Then our line up could be
Dats - Z - Dats
Z - Dats - Z
Dats - Dats - Dats
Z - Z - Z

What the heck is up this year in the second round? All these teams down 3-0, and now the Capitals getting swept. Could happen with the Flyers and the Wings. The Wings already swept the 'Yotes. Tons of OTs. This was supposed to be the year of parity in the NHL, but you rarely see this many teams being swept out of the playoffs! Of course, the Flyers and Wings could take the next 4 games . . but come on.

I`m lost for words right now. This team f***in blew it. Plain and simply, f***in blew it. They had them, where they wanted them tonight and choked. It was painfull to watch. We all knew what was coming in OT after we blew that late 3rd period lead. WTF Modano wasn`t out there tonight is beyond me. Ahhh, this loss really sucks. Everyone will say, well...1 game at a time now....You never know...Yeah, Yeah, Yeah....Series is over and it reallyhurts this time. I hope I`m wrong, I really, really hope I`m wrong!

We could still win this series.

All we need is some of the following:

1) Niemi must contract a fatal and fast acting disease, tonight.
2) We take no penalities, ever again. Ever.
3) The Sharks show up late to the arena, forfeit the game, and we win by default.
4) Detroit replaces all it's players with robots.
5) We genetically engineer a Fedorov, Yzerman, and Shanahan, all in their prime.
6) We draft super heroes. I'm thinking Iron Man, Spider Man, and the girl from Kick Ass...for starters.

If those conditions are met, we could win.


I think we'll win this series, by winning the next 4 games in OT!

I'd retire from LGW if that were to happen. :hat:

i totally disagree. We gave SJ the line way too easily in the third, had relatively zero forecheck, and didn't generate many, if any, solid chances.




yes but sj had zero sustained pressure either and hardly any quality scoring chances. even on the tying goal the sj player just threw it blindly out front. boyle just happened to be there.

i think most of us fans knew the wings didn't have it this year. take out the first 15-20 games of the season and they played probably .500 hockey.

but we ain't done till the 4th win comes.
naked is a state of mind

IMHO, the Wings do not need Jagr. They need a studly stay-at-home defenseman or two.

They showed more jump in there game today, but giving them chance to come back takes them out AGAIN. This series has made me sick to my stomach, we have a team that should have beat them I think in 6 games, the only thing that makes them strong is there top 3 lines, goalie sucks and defense is ok. I can't watch game 4 Im driving to Detroit tonight to help them pack up and clean there golf clubs up, maybe get them a tee time for saturday morning.

I wont be able to watch game 4 (even if we won tonight) so this will probably be the last GDT I see you guys in till next season.
Thanks for always having such enjoyable GDT's every single game and its been fun watching hockey all year again with you guys. Lets hope it lasts a little bit longer next year.
See you guys around the forums during the off season.

P.S. Lets go Tampa :lol:

2007 - I remember losing to Anaheim after a nice boneheaded play by Lilja that cost us game 5.
2008 - The top players wanted to win the cup for themselves that year. Also, that team had a relatively easy time in the playoffs matchups wise.
2009 - This was a terrible choke job. Went up 3-2 in the series, and ended up choking game 7 on home fricken ice.
2010 - Stolen by refs? Just like this year, the Wings were outplayed last year.
2011- Failed to make any changes against a team that embarrassed the Wings last year.
Playoff Time. Let's Go Red Wings!!!!

s***, we're dead as it is now. I'd start Ozzie Game 4, put Modano in for Abby and Kindl in for Ericsson. Why the f*** not, there is no chance to win this series. None.

Not sure where all the Draper hate is coming from. I thought he played pretty well tonight -- assist and +1. He was far from the problem in this game; he played better than guys like Cleary, Abdelkader, Franzen, Fil and Hudler did.
