Cooper's a big baby. Even though the Bolts won the series, having Cooper behind the bench is a big loss.

In Topic: ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Maybe the last time we see Babcock in Detroit. It was fun, but maybe its time for a new message. A stomping by the Bruins sandwiched by two heart breaking game 7 losses. Howard didn't play a single game; I wonder how he feels. Tampa was the better team. Detroit almost made their defense/system look invincible. I believe we will see Tampa beat Montreal and head to the Conference Finals against New York. I think Detroit needs a new coach, should trade Howard, and should find some offensive threats in the off-season. Zetterberg has declined substantially, and well, where is the offense going to come from next season? 

 

I'm proud of our boys. They went further than I thought they would. They won three more games than the star-studded 2002-03 Red Wings. That team had Federov, Hull, Shanahan, Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Larionov, Holmstrom, Malty, Draper, Robitaille, McCarty, Chelios, Schneider and Yzerman, to drop a few names. There have been many game 7s in this franchise's past 15 years. Maybe all it takes is a little bit a push to get this team over the hump and back into Stanley Cup contention.

 

Never give up Wings! May we come out better next year, keep the streak going, and hey... maybe even make it out of the quarterfinals!

 

Good luck to Tampa and everybody else still in the playoffs.
