All right, I think I can finally pull myself out of my funk long enough to genuinely say that it's been a great season, and I appreciate my boys doing what they do.

I had the opportunity to thank Jimmy Howard face-to-face (brag, brag) for a great season last year, and if I meant it then, which I did, then I sure as hell mean it this year. I think we did the best thing you can do other than winning the Cup, and that's to show heart. One part of me wants to say, "Who the f cares about consolations right now?" but knowing that my team gives all they can because they want to and will continue to do so in the coming years keeps me going, even when I don't really want to be comforted. Thanks, guys.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

As much as I know anything, I know this:

I love the Detroit Red Wings. Have a nice summer, fellas.
"We've been in the same spot all year long. We won 50 games for the fourth year in a row. People think we're just hum-drum and boring.
No, you know what we are, we're good. You can't do what we do every single day and not be good." - Mike Babcock

No one can question the heart, grit and effort of the Detroit Red Wings.

I'm just as proud of this Wings team as those that won Cups in years past.

Maybe even more.

hmmm I didnt think it was a very good season at all really. Not "Great" thats for sure.

There were a couple of really really bad games, team got shut out how many times?

Team didnt play a full 60 minutes on many occasions

Home record wasnt that great.

Lost the #2 spot at the end of the year.

Key players in and out of the line up all season long with injuries.

I was hoping for a better "Modano story"

I was hoping Hudler learned a few tricks in the KHL and was going to come back and do some damage.

Still waiting for Franzen to have a huge season.

For me it was a touch year to be a fan.

They really surprised me when they swept Phoenix, surprised me that they were down 3-0 to the sharks too, they pleasantly surprised me with the come back very proud of that made the loss tonight easier to handle.

Thank you though Red Wings for the Entertainment. I check the Free Press and Mlive every morning before I read my own emails.

He's a strong player. I really hope Jimmy knows how much we care about him and that he doesn't lose any confidence in the offseason from this series. Howie has definitely matured, I just hope the passion in his heart stays as strong as ever.

Great season Jimmy
:clap:
Great season Wings

Posted Image Absolutely. It was a freaking dramatic roller coaster ride from beginning to end. Hopeful to caustic. As always this site made the season more enjoyable for the awesome knee-jerk/overdramatic reactions (GDT). Had a great feeling going into game 7 that if we could have pulled that off, it was possible to take this all the way to June. Just glad this is our team and hope to see another amazing amount of moments to look forward to next year. Oh, and come back Nick!!!!!!!

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.



Don't you mean UNemploying Brad McCrimmon?

It was a Great Season!! The team always puts out a quality effort every season and they did it again this season. I really wish we could have taken the Cup but it just wasn't meant to be. I've already started the Countdown to well at least the NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City 103 Days. I think it's like 108 to the Red Wings Training Camp. See ya next season Red Wings!!
