I still wake up sweating in the middle of the night hearing "SAVE by Giguere!"

I'm not a fan, was never a fan. That usually means they did something to significantly damage us with their skill in the past. Glad to see you go Giguere, but at the same time, part of me was glad to witness parts of your career.

What about the wings?!?! I mean if you look closely there is a wheel to symbolize the motor city and a wings attached cause we're the wings

#2532071 preds prospects Viktor Arvidsson and Kevin Fiala shootout moves

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 14 July 2014 - 06:24 PM

So what? I don't care...wrong board.

Trying to compare sizes with Jurco's moves? Shootout skills won't turn your franchise into a contender, I'm afraid :lol:


Hey now PredsFan is one of our favorite non Wings fan first.

I voted fight with Pronger because wings fans deserve more of this from our team.

That will probably win, but I like to forget anything that happened in those playoffs.  


Cleary was awful in the 2008 playoffs, but the Wings won the Cup.  In 2009, he was brilliant and scored a lot, but the Wings lost and he missed that crucial breakaway at the end of game 6 against the Pens.  


2007 is a better memory, because the team vindicated itself after choking in the playoffs in 2003, 2004 and 2006.  Losing to Anaheim on a deflection sucked, and I still feel we'd have won the Cup if not for that play, but overall, that playoff feels better.  Also likely because we won the Cup the following year.  2009 still stings because the Wings haven't won anything since then.


Man, those post lockout years were (almost) magnificent.  2006, favorites for the Cup. Sure, they choked big time, but they were still overwhelming favorites and won a ridiculous amount of games.  In '07 they shed the choke reputation and were so close to the finals.  '08 was a Cup win, '09 was a Game 7 final that we played with one hand behind our back and still almost won.


2010 had so much promise, and then the injury parade started, and mixed with retirements we haven't been the same since.

At least someone finally chose Detroit  :scared:




"It was an interesting process. I was surprised we could get him. He met with three other teams first. We let him do that. We were excited he chose to be a Red Wing. It worked out well."
