So I take it you didn't watch game 4? Detroit has outplayed and out chanced Nashville. Difference is Nashville has capitalized on their chances, Wings did not. You can blame Datsyuk for not burying his multiple grade 'A' chances, you can blame Filpulla and Lidstrom as well.
I'm not disappointed with the team. I think they are playing the traditional Red Wings hockey that won cups in the past. This year they are not getting the luck or bounces or calls.
Its 2003 just not quite as crazy, in the last 21 years there have been a number of times where after a particular series or game it looked pretty dark. In all those circumstances Kenny and Co came through and made the necessary tweaks and they brought home yet another cup.
Even if you don't think Kenny can do it, that he and the organization were lucky or now maybe they are too old you still owe him a chance. He's helped to give us 21 years of spectacular hockey and I believe a bunch more we just need to be patient.
I do think however the wings really need a 2nd/3rd line scorer with speed. Speed and grit would be nice but that's a tall order.
