Radulov, Kostitsyn bros, and Erat would all shut up pretty quickly if stuey or kronner laid some big hits early int he series.

Let's keep it to over-analyzing hockey, not each other please.

All I know is finishing 4th in the Conference will not get us a Cup!

I wouldn't say that but it will make it harder to do teams are so close theese days there is no sure things

i was thinking the same thing the last couple days...dallas would be a much more desirable opponenet than nashville. let the hawks take out nashville and come out beat up. i'll definitely be chearing for the preds tonight when they play the s***birds, as i was also hoping the rangers would get at least a point last night to stay ahead of the pens. hoping the Jets beat the caps tomorrow too and either the jets (preferably) or the sabres make it to 8th. rather watch a team with some heart and grit in the playoffs than the caps. i sorta feel bad for Ovie cause he busts his ass and the rest of his team aside from Backstrom, Alzner and Brouwer are pretty lame.

I like this team.

Yea for them not our guys who can't win on the road.

The problem with finishing 4th or lower means you have to start a series or two on the road and that pretty much automatically puts the Wings in an 0-2 hole!

Aside from 2010 against the Coyotes who haven't won a playoff series in forever you have to go all the way back to 1998 when the Wings last won a series where they didn't have home ice advantage.

In 97 & 98 they didn't need home ice all the way through b/c they used to have all the time before and never won the Cup so they stopped putting much emphasis on regular season standings but since then they need the #1 seed to get them the Cup e.g. 02 & 08.

And is that because we USUALLY have home ice advantage???
