Do you realize you sound just as bad as the people you are criticizing?

Everyone on here is a fan - I know some here feel superior to say otherwise when any type of critique is made, but they are.

How about this:

"I am a bigger fan then you because I am super upset we were the first team eliminated this year.

So how about you and your seemingly impervious reaction to the success or the lack there of team that I am a huge fan of can be quiet."


I can understand being upset. I am upset as well. But I don't go on the internet seeking some kind of justification for my feelings like some of you guys do. I don't see how bitching/pouting helps cope with the loss. If that's what the "bigger" fans do then I will gladly remain with the not so bigger fans. Hopefully there is a message board for those kinds of fans.

If I wasn't a fan, I wouldn't be pissed off. If you're not even remotely annoyed by this crap or thought this season was even close to entertaining, you must have just snorted a rail of elephant tranquilizers.

I think the problem he has, and I have for that matter, with the bitching is not that the Wings didn't play well in the first round, but that the people bitching are tearing down every accomplishment the Wings had this season. The home winning streak was an event to remember. It has never, ever been done before. Give the Wings some credit and cherish that record. It may never be broken again in our lifetimes.

I am with you 100%.

The problem is there isn't. The diarrhea posting from the fans that are upset are going to be ongoing for the next month and a half at least.

Losing in the first round sucked, but it wouldn't have been a much more memorable run if they'd lost in the second or third round either, which is more likely to happen than winning the Cup even when you've got a really good team. Meanwhile, the winning streak is probably something that will stand for quite a while, and I had a lot of fun watching.

I know "the Cup is the only thing that matters etc," but it's not even remotely feasible to win it every year or anywhere close to that. Enjoy what you can while you can folks.

No, you know what we are, we're good. You can't do what we do every single day and not be good." - Mike Babcock

The journey is part of the destination.

The streak was a peak. The playoffs were a valley.

Let us not slog through the valley of the shadow of death without remembering that we climbed the mountain.

Perhaps it was the height of the mountain that made the plunge seem farther.

14 teams did not even make the playoffs. 14 other teams will end their season, like we did, with a loss. Only one team will end the year holding the Cup in their weary hands and kissing it with their sweaty beard-encircled lips.

This is the dream destination. We must climb every mountain, ford every stream, follow every rainbow til we find our dream.

This is our ultimate destination. This is our journey. Don't stop believin'.

Oh, you mean the record that completely overstated just how good this team was and gave the fans a false picture of how well they'd do for the rest of the season?

f*** the record. I'd rather still be playing hockey right now.

The record actually makes the early exit more pronounced. I mean why the hell couldn't we win one at home?
