If we win I hope that it's convincing and that we really outplay them to show we have flipped the switch like last year. Otherwise I hope we lose and can play an easier opponent in the first round to get our act together

4th seed > 6th seed >> 5th seed

WIN and DOMINATE!... then we'll have to root for an inferior Avalanche team to beat the Preds in regulation <_<
If we plan to lose, hope we lose in regulation, then we'll have to root for the "superior" Coyotes to beat the Wild.

....god, I hate relying on stars to align... but first and foremost the Wings need to get their ducks in a row...

WIN and DOMINATE!

I'm hoping that we win by a very close margin. One would be nice. Two would be ok if one is an ENG.

I don't want us to dominate and outscore them by a lot. It seems like if we completely schmuck someone, we fall into a mindset of laziness and get out butts kicked the next game.

So... GO WINGS, but only by a little.

Are those really the lines? Where did you read that? Not doubting you just interested in seeing Mursak where Miller has been virtually all season. I guess with Mursak and Miller where they are you get more depth stread out, and a nice oppertunity for Jan. Miller has helped the 4th line a little.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

Kings or Sharks, despite Todd McLellen's dominance over Mike Babcock, sure. But I want no part of Phoenix.

No! Not LA!

They're my second favorite team and I'd like to watch them play at least one round without having to root against them.


Those two bottom lines look interesting for the Wings. I guess Babcock is still trying to figure out a lineup where he can roll all four and have good things happen.

It appears Riley Sheahan is making his NHL debut today according to Ansar Khan. Mursak is out.

Interesting decision with quite a bit at stake. Excited to watch Sheahan though.

Excited to see Sheahan in the lineup, but why not Tatar the kid deserves it.

holland was quoted as saying sheahan has the big body, good on face-offs, and a center. lets see what we have in him at this point.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Well if Sheahan isn't invisible, he's already better than Emmerton. I hope so too though. 4th line center has been a gaping hole all season and Abby is better at wing with Helm healthy.
