This could somewhat of a farewell tour for the wings since they are moving east. Start by playing Anaheim who have played a 3 classic/interesting series against each other in the last 10 years. Move on to play one last series(as conference rivals) against Chicago. And finish up against recent rivals San Jose before showing the east what they will have to deal with.

Hmmmmmm, Sharks in the conf final. That's a bold prediction. I like the farewell tour theme, some good PS material right there.


The early bird may get the worm, but it's the 2nd mouse that gets the cheese.

On NHL network, mike Johnson said dekeyser would.be the unsung hero of the first round for the whole western conference.
Ej hradek said Howard would be the MVP of the first round in the west.

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

After a torrid start the Duck's finished the season 8-9-2 in their last 19, the Wings were 10-5-4 in their last 19.

Slightly OT, but is anyone planning on setting up the playoff charity fundraiser LGW has done the past few years?

At least when we face the Ducks this time we don't have to put up with Pronger's crap.  Maybe I'm putting too much stock into those back to back wins in Anaheim, but I'm optimistic for this series.  The Ducks don't have the defense they used to and Boudreau doesn't have a very good playoff track record.  Not to mention, the Ducks last 19 games they finished the season under .500 while we come in red hot.

If/when Helm is ready i hope he gets the "right away" nod by Babs. Emmertons good but even a rusty Helm should be more effective for the post season, and goddammit i miss him!

I don't expect to see any major hits by Kronwall. The Wings can not afford a game misconduct or a suspension to their #1 D-man.

From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

I generally like these guys, but their reasoning about everything is so wack and slanted.

 

Do the Wings have the depth to do any serious damage? Can Franzen, Brunner, Filppula, et al. deliver?

 

Meanwhile, everyone on Chicago's third line is a bona fide threat.

 

*sigh*

Ya well, its not like they get paid for what they actually know.  They all picked either Chicago or Pittsburgh to win the Cup...uh, really? Let's just take the top two teams from the regular season and choose one....jack wagons.

 

I got an idea, lets take the top two teams and let them play for the Cup, since no other team has a chance or deserves any chance at Chicago or Pittsburgh.  At least EJ chose Detroit to beat Anaheim...but come on guys, lets get original. It's easy to pick Chicago or Pittsburgh.  I am saying it here and now and guarantee it....NEITHER Chicago NOR Pittsburgh will be in the Finals...

Ducks fans are already throwing their hands up in outrage over the officiating in this series and how the "league" wants the Wings to win.  "Ain't nobody got time for that!"

Poll on who gets Kronwalled first?

I can see pitts making the finals, the east seems a bit easier though, and if hwsnbn comes back they could be dangerous. I am feeling a cup final rematch, Det. Vs. Pitts for the cup

OoOoOoOoO The rubber match! I like it! I don't think I could take all the Pittsburgh knob-gobbling though....ugh....

 

I don't want to sound too much like a homer, but I am damn sure on their side until its over! So ya, Detroit in the Cup final is my prediction. Root for them until its over!

I actually feel pretty good about playing the Ducks.  I'm excited for this to get underway.  Super proud of our D this year.  Lots of young guys and they've done great!

 

Does anybody have advice for how to watch the playoffs?  I'm living in grad res, so I get basic channels (i.e. CBC).  I've only been able to watch Wings games because I paid for GameCenter this year, but now what?  I don't mind paying to watch online, but is that even an option for the playoffs?

 

You don't have to pay to watch online.  Shoot me a PM and I'll hook you up with some help.



Ducks fans are already throwing their hands up in outrage over the officiating in this series and how the "league" wants the Wings to win.  "Ain't nobody got time for that!"

 

Get used to it.  The first time a questionable call goes against us in this series there will be a lot of those types of comments around here. 


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."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."
