Personally, I don't give a **** about next year right now. If you have a 3-1 lead, and a lead going into the 3rd period at home in game 6, you should win the series. The Wings came out with a piss poor effort, while the Hawks came out in game 5 on fire. They are not that much more talented than the Wings, they are out working the Wings. That's where I have the issue.
Looks like those 3 wins may have been a fluke. Good season but 3-1 lead in a series no way you should blow that.
