#1977282 My point of view of Round Two.

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 06 May 2010 - 07:20 AM

maybe the first 3 games being 4-3 is an indicator of how the series is going to end

My 100th post :banana:


#1977129 maybe, just maybe

this year the sharks are trying to top themselves and become the 3rd biggest choke artist of all time. With their history of choking in the playoffs it would only seem right that they would blow a 3-0 lead that would eventually lead to the team being torn apart in the off-season. will it happen? probly not but as wings fan why not be as optimistic as possible with nothing to lose.


#1972632 This is the "adversity" that Babs talks about

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 03 May 2010 - 05:43 PM

Babcock says that every cup winner will have to go through adversity at one time or another, the wings being down 0-2 is just more of it in an adversity filled season. weather its playing with an AHL team, being down 2-1 in a series, or a game 7 the wings have responded and responded with a fury. i don't expect this situation to be any different. add in the fact that they will feed off of the officiating and i would be "Shocked" if the wings don't go back to cali with a 2-2 series and some worried SJ players

don't drop the octopus when swinging it over your head, all that did in game 3 was send a bad omen to the team

#1939344 Top 20 Plays with Datsyuk & Zetterberg

that really makes you realize how spoiled we are as wings fans to get to watch those two play game in game out


#1933119 last game vs Chicago

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 06 April 2010 - 02:56 AM

If the west seedings are set by sunday when the wings finish the year in chicago, and the wings and hawks are going to play in the first round do the wings rest some guys to avoid injury or go out and set the stage by trying to dominate them and show them that the Wings still own them.


#1926050 this is gonna be fun

Over the past decade at this point in the season the wings would have the division locked up and just fighting for one of the 3 top seeds in the west.

As fans we would be looking at the standings and wondering who the wings would match up best against, who you wouldn't want the wings to play in the first round and so on. But this year its different, they are going to be somewhere between seeds 5-8 and wont have home ice in a series for the first time in a long time. In years past they would be resting guys and getting ready for a long playoff haul, while the lower seeds would be just fighting to make the playoffs.

Detroit had to worry if the team they would face in the first round would be much more prepared for the playoffs because they had been in playoff mode for about a month, while the wings hadn't played a meaningful game in that span. And a couple of times they couldn't match the oppositions energy(2003 VS ANA, 2006 VS EDM)

As Red Wing fans how could you not be excited about the playoffs this year. In 3 weeks when the second season starts the wings "should" be playoff ready, and the teams they will most likely face will have the same if not more challenges than the Wings have had. And for the Wings being a lower seed they wont have the expectations they have had in previous years.

Chicago: Most of their big name players(Kane, Toews, Keith, Seabrook) haven't had the pressure of being the team to beat. If Chi and Det meet in the first round it will be interesting to see if Chicago worries more about beating their big brother or about winning a cup. MY prediction: Det in 7

San Jose: This team has more expectations that anyone in the west. If SJ meets Det in the first round and the wings win you better expect the sharks to clean house over the summer. This is a match-up where the pressure is all on the sharks and Detroit can just play their game and hope the sharks crack under the pressure. My prediction: Det in 6

Vancouver: Of all the teams Detroit could play in the first round I feel Van will be the most interesting. They don't have the offence that Chi or SJ has, but they do have an advantage in goal, and for some reason canadian teams give the wings fits. My prediction: Van in 6

Phoenix: The desert dogs have goaltending and no pressure to win. But what they don't have is playoff experience. Detroit has a history of running into a hot goalie and getting eliminated, Ilya Bryzgalov fits the mold perfectly of being another one of those goalies. And after not winning a playoff series for 2 decades they have nothing to lose. But other than goaltending the wings out match them in everything else. MY prediction: Det in 5

#1920889 Missed 3 Weeks

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 21 March 2010 - 06:27 AM

wings are 7-2-1(lost to van & calgary in reg, EDM in so) Datsyuk Mule and Homer have been our best players. Z and Flip other than tonight and a few games have been quiet. they need to work on letting in early goals and not waiting till the last second to score goals

QUOTE (55fan @ February 16, 2010 - 09:03AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
I think the OP's point was that a year ago, no one would have thought that the Pens would make the playoffs. Right now, it's not looking good for us.

The Pens fired their head coach and it sent them on a roll. We just got back Mule. The Wings look better with him in the game.

I think what the OP was saying is that bringing back Mule is similar to the Pens getting a new head coach. It is a change that is felt immediately and could turn the tide.

It is not too late for a playoff run. The Pens last year are proof of that.

If I'm misunderdanding you, Wings4Life19, please let me know and accept my apologies.




you are correct, 55fan. I now know that if Howard He Do It?! is going to read a post that I wrote I need to assume that not everyone will be able to understand the point that i'am making.

Dan Bylsma coached his first game for the Pittsburgh Penguins on Feb 16 2009 with 25 games left to play.

The Penguins record when he took over: 27-25-5, 59 PTS. They were 5 points out of a playoff spot.

they finished the year 45-28-9, 99 PTS 4th in the east.

the Red Wings record with 25 games remaining was 27-20-10, 64 PTS

Right now with 21 games left they are 28-21-12, 68 Pts 1 pt out of the playoffs.

Penguins record with 21 gms left 29-26-6, 64 PTS. they finished the year 16-2-3 35 PTS

is it possible the 2009 Penguins wrote a script that the 2010 Red Wings will repeat

The Penguins changed their coach and it changed the whole attitude of the team. I dont know about anyone else, but since The Mule has come back the team has played with a lot more confidence, they are 1-0-2. 4 out 6 points are not bad if you ask me.

I know changing a coach is totally different that getting an injured player back, but you cant deny the wings have been much better since The Mule came back.

the way i see it if the Red Wings can(i think will) win 2 out of every 3 games the rest of the way, they will be very confident they can make a good long run at another cup

I see them finishing the year 14-3-4, 32 pts, that would put their season record at 42-24-16, 100 PTS (im gonna guess 6th seed, first round match up w/ Colorado)
