Pretty much.  

 

I guess we can't even share opinions now, unless they're backed up with inside knowledge of Mike Ilitch's phone calls.  

Okay, Maybe I picked the wrong battle. maybe I'll stick to I disagree. But i was just questioning the logic of your statement. I don't know why this got such attention. Usually defending your opinion is part of regular forum conversation

Attendance?  Worthiness of winning?  What are you even bickering about? 

 

It comes down to the team that's winning and losing games... who has the best team and who is playing beyond their roster's expectations?  Wins equals points which means playoff games... or playing golf in two weeks time.

 

Other than that.  Who gives a flying ****?

 

Oh, I'm sorry.  Did I step on your opinion of what makes a good hockey franchise?

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Win over Nashville bumps the Wings up 15.3% to a 68.5% chance of qualifying for the playoffs. Nice win.

Even though we won today, we didn't really move up.  Dallas has game on us.  If they win, they are 8th, we are 9th.  

 

There are 7 games left.  I'm going to say we need 5 wins to get in ...   

 

OUR PLAYOFF BEGINS NOW !!!

But, Dallas and us are on the heels of St. Louis, who lost today. So even if Dallas doesn't start losing, we can still squeak in if St. Louis struggles. And hoping Phoenix and Columbus don't get hot.

There is a way Dallas and Detroit both make the playoffs.

I still see Minnesota trending downwards, letting both Detroit and Dallas in.

I don't think Dallas gets in but I do think Detroit screws themselves and finish 6th or 7th.

How would that be screwing themselves?  Avoiding Chicago in the 1st round isn't a bad thing....


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.

Don't forget : Some play each other, some play against us so I think 4 Wins will be enough. If we beat Calagary and Phoenix I dare to predict that you guys around Detroit can start buying the Playofftickets.

I see St. Louis making it ... they seriously reloaded at the TD and with Elliott getting hot, they'll be tough to beat.  Hitchcock knows what he is doing.  He's a coach that for some reason, I always feel nervous when the Wings play against them.  Hitch is friends with Babs but it always seems like Hitch gets the best of Babs.

It'd be really impressive if the Stars made the playoffs.  At the deadline they traded away their captain, Jagr, and 2nd line center in Roy.  And right now they're 2 points behind the Wings with a game in hand.

yes, getting swept by chicago would definitely be the option with the least travel.

 

good call.

If it's one team that would honestly beat Chicago in the first round, it would be Detroit. We just play differently against them. We lost against them in OT for the first game, another in a shootout, our 7-1 horribad game, and then another shootout. So we haven't been beat once in regulation by Chicago. Nonetheless, that second game should've been the game we ended their streak if it wasn't for Ericsson pitchforking it out of play. So in reality, bounces in any direction would've changed the games.

 

I wouldn't act nearly as horrible as you're making it out to seem.

So that 7-1 game didn't count?

Somehow I allowed that one to go over, i'm sure you get the overall point of the message though. I wouldn't be nearly as "scared" as many of you are.
