Does a 4-0 win today indicate a Stanley Cup win this year? Did we turn everything around on this Saturday afternoon?

So with the poor play in all phases of play and losing games all the time is it evident that this team is a first round ouster regardless of who they play b/c they don't match up well with any of the Eastern playoff teams with the exception of Ottawa but that's still no gimme of a series but they aren't getting the top seed so no chance to play Sens.


This team has issues on both ends and that fact that they have 5 20+ goal scorers is just a moot point as this team is no offensive juggernaut by a long shot. This offseason they must decide if they want to revert to being Cup contenders once again and make the necessary changes as this team is a far cry from 2008 or even the 2009 team for that matter.


I almost passed out reading that first part. The sky is not falling, people. The clouds are definitely hanging low, but it's temporary. I'm aware of the irony of responding in this thread, but the point of the original post is completely ridiculous. The Wings, as well as any other team, could have a specf***ingtacular year, then tank in the first round. Consequently, I seem to recall the term "Dark Horse", where an unlikely contender makes a strong run in the playoffs. Two or three weeks of uncharacteristically crappy games hardly predicts a short visit to the playoffs. The only thing that will determine our ouster in the first round is if the other team wins four games before we do.

Have people been actually saying this? I was under the impression we all realized the team as a whole sucks right now.

It's an oversimplification of what people are saying. It's easy to call out Howard for his dumbassery because it usually ends with a goal for the bad guys. Bad D, low scoring, ineffective coaching...they result in overall crap on the ice, but it doesn't always manifest bad goals.

The only time I see any real intensity from these guys is in the celebrations after the goals.
