#2219650 10/28 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 2

Why is consensus on this important to you? I don't understand.



I'm just waiting on when you'll say that if we had Ritola, everything would be different.

In other news, I see you got hit on the head and forgot about last postseason. The Sharks won that series on two absurd bounces in OT.


Absurd bounces?

More like an absurd post. Stop making childish excuses each time we lose in the playoffs.

According to some people here, we haven't legitimately lost a series in like 8 years.

I agree with you 100%. It has gotten so bad on these forums to the point that I am going to other hockey forum boards to be active. Reading all the negativity on these boards really does make me feel the way that you do. I will also add another word into your definition and that is "entitled". Many wings fans feel just because they put a team on the ice, that they are entitled to a victory. This is the kind of attitude that you breed when your team never misses the playoffs and has won 4 stanley cups. This forum really does need an enema.

Then I read some of the positive comments from the great fans on this forum and it makes me change my mind. For as many negative fans, there are some positive ones that actually know the game of hockey. These are the people that I keep coming back to this forum for.

I am watching a DVR recording of the game now. I was watching the Griffins get beat soundly by the Heat tonight. It looks like it is going to be a close game just from the first 10 minutes of the game.


I am unhappy about the way we're playing, Nightfall.

Honestly though maybe it would be good for the Wings to be bad one season and get a draft pick that can actually produce the year he is drafted and not 6 years later.


Any chance we get Andrew Luck?

Babcock just continues to be outclassed by his former assistant.

I agree that there's definitely a truth to this. Flip, Hudler, and Cleary, all have fun beating up on the Coyotes but are noticeably absent from Sharks games.


We can't beat the Sharks without Robert Lang.

This team is screaming for a trade right now.

We need a goalie.

If Howard didn't have a kid, he would have stopped that shot. Can't let a "bad shot" like Thornton score there.

Also, Ian White has played like garbage tonight. Maybe he's still too friendly with his former teammates.

If we had an enforcer on our team, that ref would be intimidated from making that call.

I'll never forget his last shift in Detroit. This is what leadership is all about and the reason why he gets the "A" on his jersey.

This thread is almost as good as the "Trade Zetterberg for Trevor Gillies" thread that I was planning later this season.

We need to find a goalie who absolutely refuses to procreate. Make that a contractual clause maybe.

What you're seeing from GMR is called defensive pessimism, though he's sure to falsely label it as 'realism.'


Crymson, I don't think we're going to win the Cup this year.

I do think moves need to be made at some point this season.

In my opinion, we can't win the Cup with this roster. We've tried two seasons in a row, and couldn't get past the 2nd round. Sometimes, you have to try something different, and not keep banging your head against a brick wall in aimless futility.

And I'm not saying this because we've lost two games in a row. I said before the season that some kind of changes would have to be made at the deadline. We'll have to wait till then.

We're still a good team and will likely win the division, but there's no reason to expect a Cup run with this roster. We've learned as much in recent years.

Meanwhile, the Pens continue to dominate without Crosby and Malkin. <_<

In 2007-08 the Red Wings' first 7 games were 4-2-1 (9 pts) -- pretty sure we remember how that season ended.

So far they have 5-2-0 (10 pts) and are on pace for 117. So, following a horrendous 5-2 start, without reservation, we begin another season episode of Panic time! :yowza:


Yeah, but in 2008 we had Downey. We don't have Downey now.

I fail to see your point.
