Hawks Team = I have to no issue
 
Hawks Fans = They are delusional

Hawks announcers = annoying as hell

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".

Makes me sick to say it but Game 1 - Periods 2 and 3 sure did look that way. We were hanging on for dear life. We have alot of experience behind us but we really have alot of inexperience on the ice and it shows. If we can hold it together and stick to the plan for 60 minutes we can beat the Hawks but we will need our young players to grow with each game and not make the same mistakes.... I feel I could have played a better game then Smith, that guy couldn't clear our zone if he were the only player on the ice last game.

 

GO WINGS!

I say let them have their fun.  I'll take our last 25 years over theirs.  Consider it a parting gift.  :)


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Hopefully we only have to be in the SAME RINK as them 2 more times.  We win tomorrow, take 2 at home and return to the Mutthouse on Madison to wrap up the series.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

On paper the hawks are without a doubt the better team however two things strike me here. 1 paper don't play hockey 2. I don't think I need to quote the years the wings lost even when we were the better team.

I really hope the players saw this

I don't know why this article would upset anyone at all. I thought it was hilarious and it made the writer sound like he suffers from small man syndrome.

The Blackhawks are a better team right now than Detroit, no doubt. But they haven't even played Detroit in the playoffs since 2009, when they lost. The basis of rivalries, to me, is mainly in the playoffs. And, even if the Blackhawks win this series.... this Blackhawks team will be a sparkling 1-1 in playoffs series vs. Detroit.

The guy sounds pathetic.

This is the hammer equal to the Chicago Tribune's hockey writer's knowledge.

Hasn't it been only one game? Someone is putting the cart before the horse. Get back to me if the Hawks are up 3-0, then maybe this guy isn't full of s***.

 

Don't blame the Hawks' media and fans for sounding whiny. There was little profile for the team, so a majority of the media/players following the team now have little history. Why not pick up the 'dead horse' of Detroit sucks? It sells better than actually deconstructing the changing of these teams in the past couple of years. Detroit is now a team in transition, the Hawks are the jauggernaut. The Blackhawks have a strong, balanced team. Their top-6 D may be the best in the league. Detroit has Kronwall and a much of very young, inexperienced players - or plain old nobodies. Smith? DeKeyser? Kindl? Quincey? This isn't the fearful Lidstrom/Kronwall/Rafalski of old. Same with Wings' forward lines. Young. In transition. But instead, we get this drivel.

 

Sassone at the Daily Herald, and the guys at Committed Indian are usually decent souces for actual analysis of hockey. Ignore the Trib and Sun-Times.

 

Cheers y'all. The Hawks dominated Game 1. The Wings get decide if it happens again on Saturday - it is a game I'm looking forward to.

The year before the Hawks became a decent team, I went to a game in Chicago against Ottawa and there were literally entire sections in the lower bowl that had nobody sitting in them! I agree with and have proof of all the claims that many Chicago fans are nothing more than bandwagon fans. Support them when they are good, forget about them when they are not.

I don't think anyone belongs on the Hawks rink.

 

That place is way too dim.  It's supposed to be a sports arena, not a sports bar.  


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

 Amen to that, even in a down year we made the playoffs, they had to be basement dwellers for years to get good draft picks. I respect the Hawks as players, its the fans and media that make this a rivalry. 22 years in the playoffs is a lot tougher than their little point streak during the season.

I seem to recall that even though the Hawks won the Cup in 2010, they then traded away a bunch of players (or they just re-signed elsewhere) and failed to make the playoffs at all in 2011. Ha. Some "powerhouse" team they are.

 

I hope Babcock and the Wings see this and it lights a fire under their asses and they shut this guy and the Hawks fans up tomorrow. The odds may seem against us but we've beaten teams before when it looked grim. Remember when Vancouver outplayed us a few years ago and took the first 2 games against us at the Joe, and then we went back and won the next 4 straight? Remember in 2011 when the Sharks were up 3-0, and, even though we lost, we battled back from the deficit and we took them to Game 7? Don't write us off just yet.

That's some garbage writing.  It's funny how fans like to run their mouths with all kinds of smack talk when all they're doing is sitting on a couch pounding some brew.  I guarantee you that the Blackhawks players don't dismiss the Red Wings when they're on the ice.  They're a good team, but cocky pricks like that author ruin it for me.

The players and coach definitely saw this. It's being reported on MLive and what not, so i'm almost positive it's been brought up. Babcock had a nice little conference that's on TSN (Under the name 'Firing back', I think dad said something about it earlier. He told everyone to calm down.

i really hate it when fans of certain teams bring up the "we've won more cups then you" argument because it really doesnt have anything to do with the game being played currently.

 

and the wings do deserve to play on the same rink as the blackhawks. Since they are both NHL teams am i not right? NHL teams deserve to play on other NHL teams rinks am i not right? or am i missing something ?

I think the relevance is just that we've dominated the Hawks for so long, that just because they've been better than us for a couple seasons isn't enough to feel so high and mighty over us.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!
