#2415771 WCSF Game 7 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2 OT (CHI wins series, 4-3)

Let's hope the Kings and Bruins make the finals. And that Flip is gone and we get a legit scored or two. I think our defense will be okay, but our offense needs help.

I fail to see how being disappointed about losing a series in which we were up 3-1 is whining or entitlement.

Maybe we weren't supposed to make playoffs, but once we're up by that much, we were supposed to win.

I'm not angry or calling for anyone's head, I'm just deflated. This shouldn't have happened, upstart or not.


#2412169 DeKeyser status?

Yes, but do you not realize that when Smith messes up he answers back with a goal or an assist? lol  Now if he would just do he later with out the first.

 

The kid is like a yo-yo, and that gets him a lot of slack from bipolar fans. He screws up and looks generally bad, and then next shift he makes a beautiful pass or uses enough pressure to get some offense going or slaps one home.  He's going to be good, he just needs to learn to settle the heck down.

Datsyuk actually has been a slightly, tiny bit disappointing this series.  I don't know if it's his focus on defense, but he just hasn't been quite as dazzling with the puck.  Still making solid plays, but it'd be nice to see him take over the game again.

They sat back. There was zero pressure and they gave Chicago so much space. Uncharacteristic of them. I expect that to change, but am naturally worried now that Chicago has momentum. We don't want tgis to go seven.

Flip has killed all but a small handful of offensive opportunities this playoff run. He has been terrible. We can find a better second line center.

Wings look disorganized and frustrated. That is disheartening. The cynic in me knew it was only a matter of time before Toews got on the board. I hope we didn't wake up the giant we've all been told about. Have to try real hard not to be bipolar about this. I just feel like giving Chicago back their confidence and swagger and momentum is bad for the Wings.

Score on the power play, limit Smith, and then I feel a win coming.


#2410809 WCSF Game 4 GDT- Blackhawks 0 @ Red Wings 2 - (DET leads series 3-1)

I'm just worried that if Chicago wins Game 5 they get their legs back and come back. I want them to stay shaken.

Not getting ahead of myself, and staying purely hypothetical, I think it would be cool to meet San Jose next round and Pittsburgh in the final.

I still feel like this team shouldn't be able to win the Cup, but I'm also beginning to feel like this team is destined for that showdown.

They've been too consistent thus far, and they improve every game. The Wings are not just hot, they've become a genuinely dangerous team.

Yup.  I've never seen Toews get this pissed.  He really is melting down bad.


I don't think I've seen any captain melt down quite as bad. Sure, Getzlaf kicked a stick, but Toews looks suicidal.

The eternal pessimist in me is terrified of an epic series comeback. Way too superstitious to be cocky. But damn, these Wings look good.

People want jobs that will actually pay a living wage?

What a bunch of entitled little s***s.


This isn't directed only at you. Everyone keep politics out of the thread.


#2409214 97.1 The Ticket: Hocketown "Dead"?

Posted by VM1138 on 22 May 2013 - 12:31 PM

I never listen to that channel, but it seems the state radio programs never cover the Wings, and when they do discussion does die off.

I think part of it is that the hosts aren't knowledgable about the NHL. Why would I call in if my point will go over their heads?

With the Lions being interesting again and the Tigers doing well, hockey has fallen off the radar. There used to be Wings updates on store signs around the state, now I never see any reference to them.

Sad, but even in northern states hockey is secondary or tertiary to football and baseball.

The thing I don't get is why the NBA gets more coverage when I think they post similar ratings and attendance to hockey. I guess because the radio stations are based out of urban centers.


#2408850 Report: Roy Appointed Avalanche Coach

Posted by VM1138 on 21 May 2013 - 10:25 AM

This is a disaster waiting to happen. Roy loses his cool way too easily and is mentally unstable (in hockey).


#2408843 Unsung Hero....Colaiacovo?

Posted by VM1138 on 21 May 2013 - 10:21 AM

He's always been a good player. People just irrationally translated his injury history as meaning he is a bad player.

I hope he stays around. Obviously with his history we can't rely on him, but it's good to have him for insurance.

God, I almost forgot about the blue streak following the puck.

On the bright side this wasn't the worst loss of the playoffs for us. I fully expect the Wings to bounce back. They can beat Chicago.
