Which Nhl team would you most want the Redwings to get revenge on for a earlier series defeat?

I would love for the Wings to sweep the devils in the finals for payback from 1995.

- A Wings-Devils SCF rematch should have happened somewhere within the last decade. Too bad both teams had too many playoff early exits during the time.

I'd love to see us get revenge on SJ for the previous two playoff runs. The Wings would have defeated either of Chicago or Vancouver if SJ didn't f*** it up.

Playoff run this year should be

1st round- Calgary

2nd round- LA Kings

3rd round- SJ Sharks

SCF- New Jersey/Pittsbrugh

I remember as a kid when the Wings lost to SJ in (I think) '94. I was so disappointed.

I'm still a little in denial about '09 so I won't talk about that...

We were cheated out of 09 so I don't count that as a loss.

I agree. In my book I consider that series to be marked with an asterisk indicating that the Wings really won it. Losing by a goal in Game 7, hitting the post with seconds to go, all while only playing on half cylinders? The Wings owned that series but couldn't score all of a sudden.

San Jose. Just because it was the most recent. I always want the team that got us last.

Pittsburgh is my next choice.

Aves is always nice for old times' sake.

Game 3 (I think it was...) the refs gave them the win completely changing the series. I don't care what anyone says, the refs and by extension the league are who needs revenge on that one. We had control of that, and the NHL decided they wanted a longer series to showcase their precious Crosby and did not want an easy repeat for the Wings.

I totally will admit that we could have won game 7 if we played better, and the refs stayed out of that game... I still think that if you are going to play politics in a sports series, you might as well just have a one game playoff then. Momentum is dangerous thing to toy with.

BTW, why the hell hasn't Mr. Negative gotten the ban? I would have figured that with all the hate on him for being a troll and generally offensive, some mod would have removed him.

His name alone is offensive enough IMO.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Kudos to the OP for using the word "revenge" instead of "hate"; we don't want to be like St.Louis fans.

Good topic for Babs in the dressing room, because when you actually sit back and remember what happened it can start to piss you off. So tonite I would bring up the last game against the Oilers, and the time they beat us out of the playoffs a few years ago. That should get them going right off the draw.

Ducks


2007 series was the most nail-biting, wild range of emotions and down right angering series the Wings have had in a long time. Never has a series had so much controversy, so many strange and unimaginable circumstances. The chippy-ness and unlucky/lucky bounces on top of some very questionable calls took years off of many Wings fans' lives (maybe some Ducks fans too). After that series ended you almost felt like kicking a puppy :P

2003 :no:


To a lesser extent, 2006 Oilers. Not that there's a need for revenge that much, just a epic collapse at the end that shouldn't have happened. Not to mention a pretty disheartening way for Yzerman to go out on.

Got FSD setup with all it's glory.  Plan to have pre and post game coverage along with Wingspan and 24/7.  Youtube page: RedWingsLive1

Revenge?

Marian Hossa, for choking us out of 2 cups in a row.

Nothing would delight me more than to see that team fail to Detroit in dominating fashion.

Sharks - should be #1 on everyone's list IMO, they have literally had the Wings' number the most recent playoffs.
Blackhawks - Hate 'em. Still biggest natural rival. Would love nothing more than to crush them in a playoff series.
Penguins - I almost literally need to immediately start consuming alcohol every time I even catch a glimpse of Crosby raising Lord Stanley at the Joe. Most gut wrenching heartbreak loss, but not as big as a rival because they are in the other conference.

I want Pittsburgh. Fully healthy, no excuses. That loss still stings, being up 2-0 and 3-2 and all the rest.

And beat the Sharks in the WCF!

Ducks

I used to think the Ducks but that series with a late go ahead goal in game 7 on a so-called controversial play with Cleary pushing it in through Hiller's pad (or was it Hiller then, whatever) was satisfactory. And winning the Cup the next year kind of made that BS series less of an issue.

2009 no question, I still get sick to my stomach every time I see Crosby lifting that cup in the Joe.

People may say 95, but lets not forget the Wings were and up and coming team at that time and had to pay their dues like everyone else.

Ducks 2007 stings too, we had a death grip on that series and would have crushed the Sens.
You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.

The Wings didn't own that series. they started strong and ran out of gas, and hence lost the series. They weren't cheated, they just lost in heartbreaking fashion.

Sorry guys, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I agree with stinky fish...


As infuriating as it would be at the time, the Pens would be a great rematch. Giving the Wings to chance to break the tie.

He's not trolling in this case. It's a valid if unpopular opinion that I think happens to be right.
