Just think, if that Lidstrom goal from center ice didn't go in, we could be talking about the biggest bunch of chokers in NHL history.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

What about Boston a few years ago? That was pretty bad.

Or that one Wings team that had a 3 game lead over the Leafs for the cup.

.... How the hell is 2002 10 years ago? Time is accelerating by year.

I know. When I hear a decade ago, I still think the 90s. Blah.

I was sitting in a bar in Wellston, Michigan, watching that game with my hubby and a bunch of fishermen who'd come in off the Manistee River. I looked at my other half, and said, "That goal changes everything. We're goin' all the way."

Good point but do you insist on finding the negative in everything that happens? lol

Can't believe its been 10 years. So many great moments that year. The series against Colorado was definitely the most difficult. What a series that was.

I remember exactly what I was doing when Lidstrom shattered Cloutier's career. I was sitting on the couch and my grandpa goes "That shot may be looked back at 10 years from now, and people will call it the defining moment of our Cup run". Wise man, my grandpa is.

When Lidstrom scored from center on Dan Ellis in '08 against Nashville, my grandpa calls me and goes "Remember '02 with Cloutier? The Cup is ours this year again!" What happens? Wings hoist it again.

It would be nice. If we win it all this year, I expect Lids, Homer, and Bert to retire, without any doubt. Lids still has plenty left in the tank, but there's no better way to retire than following a Cup win.

Thorne was the greatest. Seemed like every shot was "DEFLECTED!!" :lol:

I'll never forget his call in '98 when Drapes scored in OT over Washington in the finals: "Lapointe, centers shot..SCORES!!!! KRIS DRAPPPPPPERRRRRRRRR!!!!!! THE INCREDIBLE COMEBACK IS COMPLETE!!!"

I remember after we went down 0-2, I proclaimed, "Hey, if the Wings win the Cup, I'll quit smoking."

Don't tempt fate, people. :lol:

MERCY!!!
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

So hard to believe that was 10 years ago... Seriously doesn't seem that long ago. Time flies way too fast! I'll definitely never forget that incredible season. Literally an all-star team from top to bottom. Amazing memories.

As fun as chasing patty was, for me the highlight was game 6 in Colorado when we won 2-0. That was as good a performance as I have ever seen from a Redwings team. On the road, facing elimination, against your bitterest rivals, all the pressure of "greatest team ever assembled with 9* future HOFers", they came out and forechecked the living shiznit out of the Avs.

* Now 10, thanks to a certain P.Datsyuk :) Tells you how good that team was that he and Brett Hull were on the 4th line.


Hull - Datsyuk - Devereaux was the 2nd line. Robitaille - Larionov - Holmstrom was the 4th line. Of course, there was hardly any difference.

Insert the *Wow it's been ten years????* line here. It's funny how I can still remember where I was for every game that postseason. 7th grade....good times.
