From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

A win is a win. Even with a Blackhawks win tonight well still remain in 4th. So much for the regular season not making a difference

Hopefully they build on this win moving forward.

They're looking better. That's all I can ask at this point in the season. Good D and goaltending, The scoring will improve.

I like that I got negged for effectively saying I couldn't believe we needed a shoot-out to beat the Florida Panthers. My thanks to the ***** responsible for it. :clap:

I'm the one who gave it to you. I considered it a double negative,. like overkill. I think they looked better in this game than they have in some time. Not great and still not shooting enough, but working harder. I was just damn grateful that they got to that point, no matter who it was. Not important, I don't think. The fact that they were playing harder and with more heart was to me, the important thing. As in, why go negative at that point? Not like it ain't your prerogative, but I didn't appreciate the negativity at that point.

Let's keep this a discussion about the game instead of another discussion about who negged who and why.

I don't even know why the crap people care so much. Make mostly thoughtful posts and you'll end up on the positive side, even if a few people neg you for no reason.

I usually do that. But I'm not a ***** or afraid to back up my reasons. She wanted to know and I told her, as logically and calmly as I knew how. And you're right about the rest of it. I'm more than done here. Thanks.

I'm sorry, but it shouldn't take a shoot-out to beat the Florida Panthers. We won, but it shouldn't have taken this much effort to do so. We should have beaten them in regulation. If you took issue with what I said, you should have quoted me and said so.

I'm getting sick of this "ZOMG DON'T SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE!!11!!" around here. Negative doesn't always mean rude/cruel. I didn't say the team sucked ass and should be contracted from the NHL.

Panthers aren't a bad team anymore. They are 3rd in the East. sure the Wings could have played better and won, but I wouldn't be underestimating a team like the Panthers who have proved themselves after soo many s***ty years.

To be fair, they're only 3rd because of division seeding. They're actually 14th in the league, could wind up being lower if they don't win more games to end the season. They are smack dab in the middle of mediocrity. While I disagree with the constant negativity, it shouldn't have taken a shootout to beat them.

Careful, you can't say that. Too negative. You're right, but you can't say that.

I thought they played well... Except for maybe Kindl and Quincey

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

I don't know how you can say they are looking better from that game. They played hard for about four minutes of the game, got a lucky bounce to tie it, then settled back and held on for a convincing shootout win.

That won't do you any good in the playoffs.

We beat a division leader. Go Wings!!!!



Yet, if I suggest we fall to six to take on the same type of team... it is a bad idea and there are a bunch of naysayers.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

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.

Anyone have highlights/video of shootout?
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

Just got back from the game. You never realize how appreciative the fans are for Datsyuk when they celebrate his puck flip behind the net like he scored a regular goal.

They only gave up one goal and they won. That's better than the last two games. :)
