Where Are The W-L Results?

24 October 2015 - 12:04 PM

Well it's been about over 3 seasons now which I keep hearing about so many great young players the Wings have on their team or in their system but why are the results in the W-L column in both the regular & postseason so minimal?


This team has been in decay since game seven 2009 and not a contender since. Back then they said they were too old and had to get young so they got younger but the results are not any better as they haven't reached past the second round since 2009. Look at regular season play as aside from a 3rd place finish in the conference in 2011 they haven't gotten home ice advantage for a first round series since.


So all I hear is how great the kids are but they can't be that great when they don't win very much. On another note I guess the Wings haven't had to worry about getting upset in the playoffs anymore since they are never favoured to win any of their rounds!

Why Is The Joe Half Empty?

13 October 2015 - 09:05 PM

I just tuned into the Tampa game and I noticed all kinds of empty seats and am wondering why? What happens when they move to the new arena? Is this a result of basically not being a Cup contender since 2009?

Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

27 March 2015 - 05:16 PM

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.

Playoff Competition 2015 vs Cup Winning Years?

05 March 2015 - 06:16 PM

How do you guys rate the playoff competition from the cup winning years to this season? I think the competition is way more difficult this year as their is not one team in the East whom I think the Wings are a lock to beat as all the playoff teams scare me to death.


Lets look at 1997 where the only teams in the West who I feared were the Stars & Avs and they avoided the Stars and upset the Avs. In the East I can't remember if any teams were worth fearing as Philly didn't scare me as maybe New Jersey was the only team who could be trouble.


In 1998 the same thing in the West as Avs & Stars but this time was the other way around as they avoided Avs and took down the Stars. In the East I still don't remember an elite team as maybe the Devils again were good but none capable of beating the Wings in the finals.


In 2002 the only team in the West who bothered me were the Avs and they got was long coming in a 7 game series. As for the East nothing was going to bother the Wings in the finals plain & simple!


In 2008 the only team who I feared in the West was the Sharks and they got upset and thus avoided them and took the Stars instead. In the East the only 2 elite teams were the Penguins & Canadians but the Habs really overachieved that year and were no threat. The Pens were a threat due to various factors stemming from Buttmans team, Cindy Crybaby etc.


The bottom line is that the competition has really caught up to the Wings as we are a far cry away from 2008 when we were the class of the NHL as the days of being the odds on cup winning favs are long gone.

Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

24 February 2015 - 11:02 AM

Given Jimmy's struggles since he returned from injury and also the fact that the team has gone nowhere in postseasons when he's been in net is it even a given he should be put in net again this postseason? Right now he just sucks especially in the 3rd periods!
