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.
I will not watch awards shows for entertainers, that includes NHL Awards. The Oscars were on last night, so this is my yearly rant on them. These celebrities get paid millions of dollars for making movies. They spend a few months, sometimes in a beautiful location, then take a few months to a couple years off. There are a several awards shows, and these people spend a lot of money to get dressed up, rent limos, and get their pictures taken, all in an effort to pat themselves on the back. The most disgusting part of this is the gift bag that they receive. That bag, this year, is worth around $160, 000. There is so much in that bag that they don't even carry them out anymore...they are delivered the next day. There are people in North America, and of course the rest of the world, that struggle to make house payments and pay other bills, while working a full year. Some people don't have homes, and rely on shelters to survive the winter, let alone to get a hot meal once in a while. Millions of dollars are spent on each Oscar night so that entertainers can revel in their own glory. Today, after sleeping off the huge parties where everything is paid for, some of those people will get back to recording public service announcements about how my $30 can save someone on the other side of the world. Those people are irrelevant to me. Their opinions on how to help people do not matter in the slightest. I know that some of them do a lot to help. Some of them will support a foundation that they have founded, but this seems too self serving for me. Celebrities are disgusting people.
SG-1...duh! It looks pretty dated these days, but it's still the best. Atlantis got better once Sam Carter got on board. Everything is better with Amanda Tapping, who incidentally, attended the University of Windsor, and Windsor is very near my old stomping grounds. I think that means the I, at one time, could have met her and had a shot. Seriously, stop judging me!
