Not to jump on the bandwagon, but Holland needs to go. I'm sorry, but we've been coasting too long on the successes of the late 90s/early 00's teams, and part of that is letting Holland get away with not doing anything to improve the team season after season after season. Babs can only work with what Holland gives him, so our s***tiness isn't his fault. He can't make lazy, entitled, below average players look good. Babs needs a better team to work with, and the first step in getting there is getting a new GM.

And no, that doesn't mean getting Steve out of Tampa. When his current contract is up, I'd love to see him GM this team, because If****** love the guy and want to see him back in Detroit. However I don't want Steve in charge of another Dead Wings-era lineup. I'd like someone else to suffer that ignominy so that Steve can take the helm of a winning, competent, capable squad.

Don't think this team has enough to tie this up IMO. I really hope they do, but I don't think it's in the cards.

I think the Blues do actually but not 100% sure.


Not sure but Wings vs Blues, if you added blocked shots, Wings had like 55 shots or something crazy... and before we busted that no-name goalies scoreless streak in one of the last games, I was all annoyed he was getting so much credit when its obvious his D is outstanding.

I guess not.

But this is easily the worst offensive game we've had in the playoffs for many years.


They had some bad ones against Calgary in 2004. After that you're right.....
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

We got to force Game 6
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

We have to score 2 more goals to win this game.

Seems like a monumental task.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Give it up Mickey. The refs are not going to call penalties on the Preds.

Honest question. Do you think we will ice a better team next year.


If Holland is still the GM, no. We need fresh blood in this organization. A lot of it. The fish rots from the head down. You can't rid of Illitch, he owns the team. So, who's next?

Actually, Wings are playing a little better now, at least there is some passing now, there is still hope.

Might be the worst team strategy I have ever seen us have.
