I'm really confused by this series. You mean it's actually possible for a team to score more than once or twice a game against Boston?  I wish someone would have told the Wings this.

 

I know it was popular to think so after the Boston-Detroit series, but the truth is the Bruins are not some super team or "the best team in recent memory" as some were suggesting.  Apparently they're perfectly human if you don't make dumb personnel decisions and actually execute a game plan. 


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."

The wings did beat them 3 times during the season. Obviously they're not unstoppable. I lay the blame on the coaching in this one. I just don't understand why mike does what he does with the lines when it doesn't work, and why he's so averse to icing a team with an enforcer in the playoffs for a game or two. I just don't get the logic.

I think it's largely just the rivalry. Games between these two teams sort of exist outside of time and space and stats and reason and stuff. Everything goes out the window; it really just comes down to which team wants it more. Same deal with what the Wings and 'hawks have had for the past few seasons, especially last year. We pushed them to seven games not because we were that good, but because we always bring it against Chicago.

 

We do?  I know we took them to seven last year, but outside of that I don't think we've exactly "brought it" against them for a few years.

Fair enough. I do feel like we tend to play them pretty tough, but they've definitely had our number in recent years, so...whatevz. F*** the Blackhawks.

I wish I could be handed the reins of a roster that was all ready built then be lucky in my drafts and get guys in late rounds that become good.

It's like the Tom Brady in New England deal. Some not intelligent people are like OMG THEIR SCOUTING SO GOOD THEY GOT SUPER BOWL WINNIG QB IN THE 6th ROUND!!!!

when in reality it was LUCK. Same idea in the NHL. The almost "sure things" go in round one or two. After that it's just a guess. Luckily the wings have guess right a lot so far...

They developed him well, put him in a system he could work with, he had a really good mentor in drew bledsoe to help him, and he took advantage of it.
Its not luck to find guys that late that fit your system, thats what scouts and your staff get paid to do.
they lost tom Brady for a full year and went 11-5 with matt Cassel leading them.
Another 7th round quarter back.


Montreal is fast, skilled, and the guys they brought in fit into their system.

As for your ken Holland jabs,
No offense, but that argument is starting to sound like its coming from a spoiled teenager being told no for the first time.

Are the Habs playing that video every playoff game or was that the first time?  It was amazing!

 

I answered my own question, guess they've played it a few times.  Still amazing.  If it was posted already I missed it.

Kenny Alberts and Pierre McGuire. Who decided these two would be good together?

Milbury (of all people) was talking up the Habs during the first intermission, but they looked kind of flat most of the night. Definitely a step back in terms of getting bodies in front of Rask, and the score showed it. 

 

If this thing goes 7, they should just save everyone some time and start in OT.

The Smith's mom sent a text saying "I hope you win tonight" to both Reilly and Brendan in the first round. Pretty funny.
