My goal wasn't to convert people, but merely to get a base of people who believe in this team all together and on the same page. There is no converting the negative nancy people. What I can do though is motivate the people who are all in for the Wings.

I didnt figure you were trying to convert anyone. What I ws getting at is when you tell someone to stay out if they dont agree with you, every last one will come out of the woodwork.

I for one agree wholeheartedly but not everyone feels the same way and will heed your request to not post to this thread.

Personally, I think the realist should be chatting away in hockey odds threads or more statistical ones for that matter. Chearleading and RARARAing is also good for the fan base and shouldnt get rained on by the more "realistic" fans. Unfortunately, the people that think you are a homer for cheering and wishing the best will show up and in return people that yell at those people for not be supportive will as well.

You tried your best but it ainst happening here and probably wont happen online. My best suggestion is to ra ra ra at the bar or with your friends or at the game.

Look, I'm all for supporting the team and always will be. I will attend the games and cheer on the Red Wings like always. That being said, you can be a realist and still be a loyal fan. I don't think the Red Wings are built to win the Stanley Cup this season. They probably have a shot if literally everything goes in their favor. If that makes me a negative nancy or a lesser fan to those that judge this type of thing, then that comes with the territory.

Well said, too many have the Crymson attitude of "if you don't think the Wings will go 82-0 in the regular season and 16-0 in the playoffs then you're not a real fan." Wanting the Wings to win and thinking the Wings will win are not mutually exclusive.

Me, up until we got the injuries, I liked our chances as much as any team. Dats was on fire, defence and goaltending were strong. Now, we've got too many players injured, or coming back from injury and playing themselves into fitness and form (Datsyuk, Franzen, Helm, Howard - not key players on our team or anything..... ). The only good thing out of the injuries was that it enabled Z to play himself back into form.

This is a fun yet difficult time of the year for me. I have superstitions I go through like wearing a certain jersey for a certain game and not changing the channel and not seeing certain people who I deem a jinx. Hehe...anyways Lidstrom deserves one more before his inevitable retirement and this team showed what it could do before all the injuries kicked in. With enough motivation we all know this team has what it takes to get it done. They just have to execute and want it more than all the other teams! Here's to an awesome new season of playoff hockey! Let's do it boys!

I don't know. It seems to be working so far. :)

I do get your point though, but I am going to give it a try. :)

It doesn't matter who we cheer for or how we feel.

The Florida Panthers will win the Cup. Tomas Kopecky will be a three-time Stanley Cup Champion, having won the Cup 3 times in 5 years with 3 different teams.

With this, the secrets of the universe shall reveal themselves and all the world as we know it shall perish.

The Mayans have foretold it. So shall it be.

Screw the Mayans.

I'm still rooting for the Wings.

People forget that "fan" is derived from the word "fanatic" meaning : "marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion". A term which, lately, is used negatively when we talk about terrorists. i.e.: religious fanatic. My Point? now think about what terrorists do for their "team".

Me, as of right now, I'm committing my unwavering optimistic support from now until the end of June. I really do think we can make it to finals..

Here's how: our boys would love nothing more that a short travel schedule and we're not going to have to play one series outside of the central conference.

1st round: Wings over Preds.

Stl over SJ

Chicago over Phx

Van over La

2nd round. Wings over Stl (who are battered from a long tilt over SJ)

Chicago over Van (hawks have done it before)

3rd round Wings over Chi town. (no problem there, chicago is just a half ass version of the wings)

That's how it's going to go down. Bank on itthumbup.gif

I’d love if that’s the way it went for some obvious reasons. First, the Wings would win. Second, the Wings wouldn’t be travelling anywhere (essentially). Third, the Wings would reassert their dominance over the entire Central Division.
