Yea, his pre-playoff prediction was Wings in 7 which I was shocked to see. I guess he got lucky on that one haha but hopefully he is right.

time to break the every other game streak! I want to hear 0 foghorns on Sunday.

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".

If you can believe it, I had to leave right after the 3rd period.  I didn't want to, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't pissed at the boys for the last few minutes of regulation.  Not too long after I received a text "HOLY s***!!!!!!"  Glad to see they had more tricks up their sleeve, even after that third period meltdown.  Let's hope they have one more trick up that sleeve on Sunday.

I have criticized Hank to dust (even if he is by far by favorite Wing of all time after Steve), but game six should be an entry in "How to Captain a Team." Magnificent.

If I had posted all the stuff I was muttering to myself about Flip, I'd probably be banned on my first post.

Did he pick twice?  Because before the series started on the NHL network he picked the Ducks to win the series.  Needless to say the Wings fan base was happy as Barry is always wrong...

Its ok. I just wonder why people bash our up and comers who are actually fun to watch develop (Kindl, Smith, Emmerton) instead of the crappy guys (Bertuzzi, Eaves) who consistently do nothing every game but create a Ducks cycle. I cringe to think of the scenario where Dekeyser is like Ericsson. What if he's hot at the start and then takes his 3 to 4 years to get back to good after a few injuries and the league figuring out his weaknesses? Is everyone going to start pkling on him? I hope not.

Exactly what about Smith has been fun to watch? He hasn't been playing well and it is simply being pointed out. I wouldn't call that "picking on" him. That shift he got his helmet knocked off, was running around like a decapitated chicken, stayed on waaayyyyyy too long, and ultimately got burned for a goal was especially brutal. Right now he is in over his head it appears.

 
Plenty of vets get flamed for there play when it is warranted. Did you miss all the vitriol for Cleary, White, Sammy, Mule, Flip(Tonight), Quincy etc.... If DD strings some bad games together in a row he will get flamed as well, but that hasn't happened. Lot's of the up & comers are getting tons of love lately. The 3rd line in particular has been freaking incredible.


You gotta be the QB to win the MVP baby! You can't be the punter.

Quincy coughed up the puck and it resulted in goal. Puck hit the post and bounced off of Smith... Another goal resulted due to Quincy being tripped and a penalty was not called.

It is not Smith's fault that the team does not a veteran core where he can be paired with a vet d-man.

Be critical where it is due, but do not lose sight of reality. This D is very young and the team in general is still learning how to play together as it has been patched together the entire season due to all the injuries.

I kind of agree with you, and I never like to bash players. I have had a little less tolerance than usual since its the playoffs and I know we're good enough to go far this year. Smith has been great since we brought him up last year, but he has made a lot of mistakes in the last 7 games. Ultimately no one "hates" him, and everyone is still really excited about him in the long run.
I don't understand what you're saying about Bert and eaves. Bert has made that fourth line a factor for the first time this series and eaves has played pretty well too.

I really hope people don't start hating on Deke. He is our future on the blue line

Just because a guy is young should not mean he is above reporoach. Everyone in the organization was saying that smith belonged in the NHL while he was in the AHL. For an offensive defenseman, he has provided no offense while also being a liability on defense. His shortcomings look even worse when you see an undrafted kid like Dekeyser step into his role (although a different role than smith) and instantly make a difference. I am not saying that smith is terrible or that I don't like him. I think he'll be on one of our top pairings in the next year or two. However, he has not earned the right to play in the next game. It is understadable that a young defenseman will make mistakes, but we can't afford mistakes in a game 7. I really don't like white, but i feel he provides more defense than smith right now.

The goal bouncing in off of Smith was terrible to see. He has been on the wrong side of too many plays in this series, but that was a bad bounce. I think he should sit for game 7. He clearly struggles and is a huge weak point in our defense. With game 7 being in Anaheim, you can bet they will put out their top line all over him. I don't know how bad White is, but I don't think he is worse than Smith.


40 for life.

quincy and smith have been god awful this season. it's very disappointing to see how much smith has regressed this season. i haven't seen any evidence of this guy's supposedly great offensive instincts. not saying he's a bust yet, but he needs to show some drastic improvement next season.

 

the wings are very fortunate that they were able to get dekeyser in case smith turns out to be a complete bust.

 

quincy.. well i think he's a lost cause at this point.

Quincey has played well without the puck the past few games.  Most of the miscues were because of Smith or trips.

his poor play with the puck far outweighs everything else. his turnover led to the ducks first goal yesterday. and when was the last time one of his shots from the point actually hit the net and not get blocked

If someone would have told me before the season, that this team would make the playoffs and have almost overcome the 2 seeded team I'd have told them to stop dreaming. No matter what is happening tomorrow, the young guns took a big step forward which will be a huge key going forward.

 

All I really want is a RED WHITE Ducks-Arena, turn this beauty into a homegame for the Wings :-)=

I do not like Quincey.  I agree with you guys.  He is the weakest link in the D and he NEVER gets the puck through to the net.  If there was to be a trade for a #1 guy, Quincey would be the odd guy out IMO. I hated Kindl early on and still don't think he was worth a #19 overall pick, but he has done well and has surpassed Q on the depth chart.
