#1961905 Toughness Thread

Posted by Xitium on 27 April 2010 - 06:31 PM

Ok I think I've noticed something about ourw ings this year that I haven't said most years come playoff time. But where is the toughness? Last year by this time Kronwall had about 4 victims, Stuart had absolutely killed Umberger, Helm was a wrecking ball and even Datsyuk was throwing around the body. This year we have Abdelkader playing the body hard and thats it.

I think this is a big reason why we're going to a game 7 in a series that should've taken 6 at the most.

Thoughts?

Oh and just to be clear I'm only talking about gritty, hard hitting hockey. I couldn't care less about fighting in the playoffs.

If the Wings lose tonight, I won't watch another game until next year.

Pittsburgh has a cake walk to the finals? Thats a joke right? They needed 6 games (and a BS no goal call to avoid a game 7) to a gimped Senators squad.

Brothers!

60 minutes from now I will be readying for round 2.

Imagine where you will be, and it will be so.

Hold the line!

Stay with me!

If you find yourself alone,

standing in green fields with the sun on your face,

do not be troubled,

for you are on the golf course,

and you're already eliminated!!!

Brothers!

What we do in the playoffs echoes in Eternity....

Uh oh. He just messed everything up for the Yotes. I ain't complaining! haha


Fiddler threw the octopus that hit the ice after the anthems down the hallway before game 1 and the Wings lost game 1, so...

Just like Colorado did in game 2 in 2008 when we won the cup. Remember? I can't remember what the player's name was, but he pitched the octopus in the bench to make a statement, and we swept colorado.

I'll be so glad when the regular season is over and they play OT like they are meant to.
