Here is some good news guys.  Even though we are unable to beat the lowly Blue Jackets, with 28 points the Wings still sit 3rd in points in the West and 4th in playoff positioning. It could be a whole lot worse....we could be in the East right now where we wouldn't even be in the playoffs and we would be 5th in the division behind MTL, TOR, BOS, OTT....we'd still be ahead of TPA and FLA, but yikes! Ken Holland better soup up this team and do it quickly, because it is going to be twice as hard to make the playoffs in our new conference next season!

I agree, while it must of been nice being born with the Red Wings "silver spoon" in your mouth, a few years of humbling loses would do this fanbase well.  Don't get me wrong, I still want as many Cups as possible, but you never really appreciate the Cup until your team has fought long and hard to earn it. Not that they haven't earned this success in the last 20 years, BUT every season leading up to 1997, including the dark Dead Wings era, are what made that 1997 Cup the most memorable Cup of all of them.  If the Wings go another 10+ years without a sniff, I think it'll bring the bandwagon, spoiled, fans down a bit and really appreciate what it takes to 'build" a Champion, just like Brian Murray and Scotty Bowman did...

Like I said in another thread, if we just make the playoffs I'll be satisfied.

We can complain about fair weather fans all we want, and yes they will go away if the wings aren't competitive anymore. Band wagon fans are like herpes, yes they go away for awhile but eventually they come back. There is never any true purging of a fan base, the true fans are those that endure the suffering of the down years.

The problem with that line is you fail to take into account the Wings currently are tied for most games played, The Wings could fall right back to tenth with 28 points once all teams that are blow us catch up to the same number of games played. The other problem is the Wings have been terrible on the road and the lion share of games left are on the road.

If Filppula returns on Wednesday, it's time to go back to Pavel/Z together and get them going.

Yup, this is the unfortunate reality.

Thank god everyone else lost this weekend too.  We're still sitting in 4th place in the west and are actually a point ahead of third place Minnesota.  Caught a lucky break there, hopefully we can get this turned around soon. 


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."

How can that be?  Everyone is close in the standings, and all the games are inter-conference.  

 

Someone gets at least two points every game.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I heard his brother is like the best fighter in lacrosse.  

 

So he should fight more often, hopefully.

I thought his younger brother Reiley played Winger on the Stars? How many brothers does this man have?!

It was nice to see him stick up for himself. MacKenzie injured him, and the past 2 games against CBJ he was finishing EVERY check on Smith. I was happy to finally see Smitty say, F This let's do it.

He has a brother named Rory who's played in the NLL, in lacrosse.  

 

That's the one I was referring to.  I guess he does have another one too playing hockey.

Damn I never knew that, just the two hockey brothers. Insane that some families just have that much athleticism in their genes
