I'm not disagreeing with you guys, obviously it sucks that we didn't finish the season stronger and I do hate relying on some sort of a playoff switch but if I can't hope for that, then there's not a lot to hope for. I believe that Rhinne is going to be all the difference in the series. If we can figure him out (no easy task) then we'll be ok. I don't think they've really got enough offense to be too afraid of and Weber and Suter can't be on the ice ALL the time. Matchups will be key, but I'm looking for a big series out of whichever line doesn't have to deal with that top defensive pairing. Wings in 6.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Anybody remember last year when we went into Phoenix in the first round against one of the top goalies from the regular season in Bryzgalov? We lit him up like a Christmas tree and that was with Z siting in the press box. Nashville doesn't scare me. Rinne has played 18 playoff games and has a .908 save %. The playoffs ARE different than the regular season
Do or do not. There is no try

I do believe so. He's got a SHUTfreakinOUT going.

How long has it been since the Wings were down 2-0 after 2 periods and came back to win? Gee... I sure wish I had a long-term memory.


Alas, I cannot help you there, Karen. I have approximately fourteen working brain cells left to work with. And I can hear them wheezing as I write. :lookaround:

We'll be playing Phoenix again...for what, the 3rd year in a row?

Not afraid of that team at all...


Don't know about that. I hope you're right, but they're picking up speed.

Only cause for concern; Nashville is physical.

A 7 game series against a physical team is not a great matchup for the Wings.

Announcer just called it an "empty point" guess playing for home ice doesn't matter


And as Eddie speaks, you can just see Bobblehead McGuire doing his thing.

this means we have to watch Kane come to a dead stop and stickhandle for 5 minutes before he shoots.


I lol'd.

Never compare this team to the 08 team again


I'm pretty sure the poster can do or say what he pleases? Still an open board, I think.

Rinne will be a lot tougher to solve than Bryz but I have faith the Wings can figure something out for him.

Shows you how far we've fallen


Yeah: to 5th. 5th seed beating 4th seed = upset.

I have faith, but I also have my doubts. I believe this team is capable when they show up. Unfortunately, they haven't been showing up. They've limped into the playoffs, winning only 7 games in their last 22. They weren't bad today, but they lack the ability to finish scoring chances against even the most mediocre goaltenders.

They have 3 or 4 days to prepare for Nashville. Lets hope they improve on all fronts, because that's where they are struggling.

I'd say they've improved all-around. They are better offensively than they have been, and the addition of Gaustad improves their bottom-six and for being a bit of a pylon at times, Hal Gill is a hell of a penalty killer and stay-at-home presence on their back end. I expect a very boring series when you consider that the Preds under Trots have always clogged up the middle and slowed the game down, with Rinne solid as a rock between the pipes. Add a shored up defense both on the blueline and up front to the Red Wings offensive woes, and it may be a chore to watch this series.

On a lighter note,there are plenty worse things than being a Red Wings fan. The Wings have a running record for most consecutive 100-pt seasons, as well as 21 straight playoff appearances. The Calgary Flames... not so much. I almost peed myself when I saw this headline on TSN's video section:

Haha 8th straight 90-pt season. Sweet, sweet mediocrity :D

Was at the game, team looked bored in the first two periods. Then like usual turned it on in the third.


Franzen...while he did score, was absolutely horrible...I seen in skate hard ONCE..That was getting back when the Hawks had a potential two on one developing.
NyQuist was going 100% every single shift. When I seen he was out there with Datsyuk and Zetterberg it was awesome. The kid is going to be real good.

Ericsson was a brick wall, nothing was getting past him. He batted a few pucks out in mid air, he was Lidstrom-like. Made some great first passes. I really like our D. On NHL 12 I did a roster update and The Red Wings defence is a perfect 99
