problem is, they only marginalized ONE star. Crosby. Malkin ran away with the rest of the show. Thats why everyf****** time some idiot starts talking about how Crosby is the best player in the world, I shoot back with the fact that he's not even the best player on his team.


Agreed, much less measuring up to Ovechkin. Or Datsyuk... Sidney doesn't even play on the PP, don't you need to be great in both ends to be a great player?

there were missed calls and bulls*** calls both ways. we had more pp's throughout the series than the pens, we just didn't do anything with them. we had plenty of pp time tonight to get a goal, but we didn't get it done. other than the anomaly that was game five, the wings had 1f****** power play goal in six games. not too many teams are going to win a series with stats like that. the penguins got it done. they deserved to win. it's thef****** stanley cup. it's an 82 game grind and then four grueling rounds of balls-to-the-wall playoff hockey. the penguins got through it all and trumped the reigning champs in the last game of the season. they deserve it.

i'm no fan of pitsburg, but they were the better team this series. they got the job done. they are the rightful champs. end of story.


Maybe you are more graceful than I, but I can't give them that much credit. Yes we got away with some calls. Just because we got more PP doesn't mean they didn't deserve more calls than they got. Yes, we didn't get the job done on the PP, or overall for that matter. But still no reason to substitute "Pitt accomplishment" for still impressive if slightly less respectable "capitalizing on opportunities given them".

Better than us, I guess the score & Cup shows that to be true, but can't say as having watched the whole series that is the story of the games. We didn't do our jobs, I admit that and can't say we earned the win, but also can't say as we entirely blew it when there are so many calls. We just didn't overcome all the bad luck and create our own "luck" like we are capable of and should have done.

Good season Wings, recharge and don't leave so much up to luck this year.

Anyone notice that Bettman was beaming handing the Cup to Crosby this year, yet a bit uncomfortable and hesitant handing it to Lidstrom last year?

as everyone has said... the officiating sucked ass. But the Wings are a good enough team to overcome that. and we simply did not play like that team.


Agreed, very very sadly, agreed...

Oh ya i guess you can add the questionable "hook" on dupuis in game 2 that lead to the winner to the list on Wings breaks as well.


Who you routing for??? For one, questionable is quite a fair argument - as it seemed to me, biased as I am, that he lifted the stick which is not hooking at all. And we got another goal and won by 2.

All of my examples were goals that were directly part of winning or losing, not when there was some padding in the score... fair enough?

Suppose you're right. Let's just say the Red Wings got screwed over worse than any team in the history of professional sports playing for a title.







What are you going to do about it? Complain about it? Are you going to walk around still claiming the Wings are champions? Screaming about it changes nothing.


You are right, it doesn't change who everyone in history will recognize as the cup winners in 09. But this is a RED WINGS FAN BOARD where we should be able to vent the injustice of the process without our own fans slamming us. All I want is an impartial league to let the players decide it and hold those players to the rules the league itself has established!
