Really? Talent but no depth? And Pittsburg has depth? Pittsburgh has almost no depth.

I think that if Boston hadn't lost that game seven in OT to the Canes, Boston would have been hoisting the cup. IMO that is one of the biggest reasons Pittsburgh won the cup.

1. Detroit's Injuries
2. The ridiculous schedule
3. Malkins non-suspension
4. Boston's game 7 OT loss to Carolina

The hokcey gods were very good to the Pens. I don't expect them to be as blessed next year.

Your right about that, but neither will Detroit for years to come with what they've locked into with their stupid longterm deals.

Good bye. You will NOT be missed.

And you won't see a cup for many a year to come with the cowardly Franzen types that make up this team - shameful t what the Wings have become . Not enough Helms on this team. See you later...

I don't want to talk too much about winning the Cup next year right now.

A few hours ago, we had 15 wins and were one win away from the damn Cup. It's not easy to get back to that point, and even if we do get back, I've lost some faith in this team's ability to finish the deal.

Well I guess you had way more faith in this team than I did . To be honest I didn't think they would even get that far, mind you Columbus was a cake walk. And the Penguins who would have thought they would even be in the playoffs. It shows you what shrewd management can do with the right moves at the right time - kudos to Fred Shero jr. his father would be proud. Osgood I have to admit he shutdown all the naysayers which I was one. He was solid in the playoffs. I've been a fan of Detroit for 30 years but at playoff time I decided to pack it in. I was actually rooting for the Ducks imagine it had come to that. I had become disenchanted with the team's direction it had been building for while , I guess ever since Stevie Y left. I don't like the make-up of the team any longer I couldn't stand Holland's longterm deals that I believe will sink the team. I'm sick of all the imports year in year out. Anyhow I experienced all the lows and the highest of highs- ' THERE AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGHER' : but now its time to leave. Good bye Detroit.

In Topic: Wings V. Hawks. Early predictions

Detroit had a cake walk against against Columbus. With the series against the Ducks face it they just squeeked through, they weren't too impressive. Had the Ducks got any secondary scoring from their other lines they would have been gone. After watching the Hawks beat Calgary and then dispose of Vancouver convincingly and with scoring coming from all over thier line-up and Kabibulin being rock solid I see Detroit gone in 6. Detroit's defense along with its goaltending will not be able to contain those dynamic young Blackhawks.
