I enjoyed watching them play the Sharks so much. It was such good hockey.

Exciting season. Even more exciting playoffs. I'll wait patiently for next season. In the meantime, Go Tampa!

I am so proud of this team for showing so much heart to come back. I was sure it was over in game 5, but they came up huge.

A few slight changes and we'll be even better. We've seen that Howard can play for real, and I'm excited to see him grow.

One of the best series in the last decade or so. Sad that it didn't go our way in the end but the comeback was still amazing and showed the true character of this Wings team. I'm gonna be depressed as hell with no Red Wings in the next two rounds but I'm still damn proud of them. :(

Would have rather seen them lose in 5 then in 7, oh well.

No way!! I can have respect for a team that forces a game 7 after being down 3. Losing in 5 is what spoiled little brats do with entitlement issues do. These guys didn't give up when the going got tough. Go Canucks.

That loss really, really sucked. Especially after they won 3 games in a row.

But I'm glad they fought hard until the end. Go Wings!

I agree. Thanks for the excellent season. The only bummer is that I am going to have to wait almost 4 months until I see the Wings in Traverse City. Not being a baseball fan, the summer is always hard on me. Going to miss not seeing the Wings. At least we have about 2-3 weeks of Stanley Cup action to watch.

Boys showed balls. Especially with the injuries. Proud to be a Wings fan.

It's impossible to say it without understating it. I'm in awe, and absolutely proud of the Red Wings.

twas a great effort but i can't help but thinking that if the wings had not completely given up on the regular season after the all star break and thus surrendered home ice, that this would have turned out very differently

Good game, even better series. Congratulations on a productive season, and all the best for 2011-2012. Looks like this board will have to get me through another summer...

Wings: thanks for the memories. Please work on the following two things during the offseason:
1. Playing a full 60 minutes (includes late-starts).
2. Employing Brad McCrimmon.

Thank you and enjoy your well deserved time off.

Ericsson: I loathe you.

Roughly 900K of his cap hit would remain on the books were he bought out. I suggest trying a trade or waivers first.

Damn ... I so wanted this team to be in the history books, to accomplish that great comeback from 0-3 :( . I wanted it for Lids just in case he isn't coming back. We were close. Now I know how Chicago felt.

All for not. :(

I'm always more upset the day after so let me tell you this now; it was NOT "all for not".

Although the cup is the main goal, there is so much more to a great season. The cup is one tournament.

It is an event to see the Wings play 82 games full of drama and action. There is no other entertainment like it.

No other characters on TV do we get more attached to than our boys. No screen writer in the would could make us feel the way we did when Lidstrom got his hat-trick, the sorry and worry we felt when half our team was injured, and the amazed sensation we had when they powered through to the post season for the 20th straight year.

It is absolutely heartbreaking when they bow out of the playoffs. But better to have experienced this team, with all their passion and strength, make it this far, than to have shrugged off a bad season in April like some other teams must do.

GREAT season Red Wings. I cannot wait to see you again in the fall :clap:

It was one hell of a ride. I'm so damned proud of Pasha...he proved beyond all doubt that he can play big in the second season. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs their head examined. Howie has shown he's capable of leading us into the next generation, Helm and Abby have great potential. This may be the end of the trail for Mike Modano, Kris Draper and perhaps even Ozzie, but they have absolutely no reason to hang their heads.

Be proud of yourselves, gang. You're a wonderful bunch of warriors. We love you.

See you in September.

Meanwhile, I'm rooting for Boston. It would be nice to see an Original Six team walk off with the Cup for a change.
