Firstly, this won't be Lids last game. He's still a top D man in this league, regardless of the lesser production he's had this year. And while everyone is entitled to their own opinion on whether they expect him to return or not, I hate reading comments like that because I for one, am not ready to see Lids go.
Secondly, I disagree with everything else you said. After reading it, I wish I never had read, as that's just a huge mood killer.
LOL at Lidstrom being the best defenseman in the league. I love him as much as anyone for all he has done, but dude's pushing 40 and is a shell of his former self. Take of the homer glasses.
For some reason I've got a bad feeling about this game. Detroit doesn't have a clear advantage anywhere whatsoever. This just seems like another set up for disappointment. This franchise loves losing to teams in the playoffs it should handily beat. Besides, even if they do win in Phoenix, I don't think this year's team can handle San Jose, Chicago, or Vancouver. We shall see.
I don't think they'll win,sorry.I think this series had 'fate' written all over it for Phoenix.They've never gotten past the first round and who better to do it against than the Detroit Red Wings at home.Sorry but the Wings will stop flapping Tuesday night.The Wings had their chance and absolutely blew it,it wasn't even close.Hudler will save us all next year.
