How does this guy write for the Chicago Tribune?

Obviously, he writes very poorly.

I just love how the Hawks are playing the best they can and they are still getting beat. They aren't beating themselves, they aren't really making many mistakes, they just can't seem to wrap their heads around the fact that the Wings are better than them. Period.

Don't get cocky, indeed. The fourth win is the most difficult to get.

 

Most of the time I'd say that if you don't get the ring, you've failed. Not this year. Wings have already surpassed my wildest dream for this season.

 

From here on out I'm gonna just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Well said!

 

And to think, some posters on this board were hoping the Wings would miss the playoffs for a better draft position. Hope they didn't strain anything too badly climbing back aboard the bandwagon.

Don't get cocky, it's not over, etc etc yes.... but, whatever happens in the series, the article is clearly way off base. if the wings are proving anything, it's that they can compete with anyone.

Am I a non-Bandwagoneer since I was just happy we kept the streak going with any wins being gravy?  Cause this is some serious gravy :)

1 more loss and Chicago won't belong on the same rink as Detroit.

Quoted for undeniable truth :D

 

But I think it should read.

 

1 more loss and Chicago won't BE ALLOWED on the same rink as Detroit.

Just watched a hawks interview video on nhl.com and Quennville was talking about what they had to do, and said "when you look at it, the big picture looks bleak, but one game can turn that around blah blah blah I know I am a failure compared to babs" (that last part I made up, if anyone was wondering) 

 

Basically that makes me think that Babs really has gotten under his skin, and he knows loss is inevitable and seems to have lost hope. If your coach doesn't have much faith you can win any games, and your captain can't play hockey with Z babysitting him, the leadership seems to be missing, go wings!!

I have said this to people who tried to argue the wings are getting lucky, The red wings are the better team.

 

Chicago has more talent, yes.

 

Detroit has more will, want, and determination. We have a third line compiled of rookies, who are seemingly thriving under pressure, and are fighting tooth and nail to keep a roster spot, and the same can be said about our defense. Chicago seemed to have the will and want earlier in the season, and once they broke the nhl record for most games without a reg. loss to start the season, they seemingly coasted on their success for the majority of the season, and now seem to be out of gas. The top lines are doing great at shutting down their top lines, and seem to enjoy it, Jimmy is out working "crow" (great that chicagos goalie has a nickname of a death omen, kinda fitting lol) and we have the better coach. If babs had chicagos players, he would have swept the wings. period.
