Every team in our division has a brighter future than the Wings.  

HEY.

 

We have a Larkin.

If they have to use the company name they should have gone with Little Caesars Colosseum. ;)

Great.  We've gone from an arena with the greatest name in sports to the first sports arena named after a pizza.  

 

Now Pizza Hut and Papa Johns will want arenas also.

#2674047 The Missed Chances: '03, '04, '06

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 April 2016 - 05:38 PM

Man I took those losses hard back then.  Didn't want to talk to anyone for days.  Good old college days.

 

'03 - was very embarrassing.  We were the defending champs.  We still had that HOF roster.  We played against the Disney Ducks.  Getting swept was the worst part of it all.  I couldn't look anyone in the eye for some time after that.  I think we could have gone past the other teams in the West, but we'd probably lose to Jersey.  They had a great team that year.

 

'04 - Got out of the first round, but that game 5 against the Flames screwed us.  I still think we'd win the Cup if that puck doesn't hit Yzerman in the eye.  San Hosay were playoff chokers who'd never get to the Finals.  Tampa may have beaten us, but at least we'd be in the Finals.  

 

'06 - What a stinker this was.   Yzerman's last hurrah was hard to watch.  Roloson was like 50 years old and we made him look amazing.  In turn, Lilja made Lidstrom look like Aki Berg on that pairing. Having Draper on the top line was a joke.  Maybe this was the worst of the three considering it was the third choke in a row.  We'd probably lose to Anaheim in the following round, though.  They had our number.      

 

 

 

Looking back at it, all the teams we lost to went to game 7 of the SCF so there's something to be proud of.  Also, I always thought the WIngs would be harder to beat if they got out of the early rounds. We'd do better against established teams than teams full of no-name jobbers relying on some super goalie.  Too bad we never got to find out.

 

Oh and Shanahan was awful in all those playoffs.  Probably the main reason the team didn't keep him.

Current logo is better and has history. This looks like a MLS logo.




#2673765 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by WingsallTheway on 26 April 2016 - 07:01 AM

hopefully out of our lineup 

 

If you don't like Helm I dont know what to say.

 

Sure, he shouldnt be in the top 6 but anywhere in the bottom 6 and hes one of the best in the league. Its not his fault that our coaches think he should be playing on scoring lines




#2673552 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by Echolalia on 25 April 2016 - 02:43 PM

Not worth it, especially considering the amount of impressionable youth the Wings are bringing in now.  I would hate to have a guy like Radulov be Larkin and Matha's role model.




#2673577 Ownership shows Support for Kenny Holland

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 April 2016 - 04:37 PM

If Zetterberg is our top line center next season, we're in trouble.  He has no room to talk or be angry.  His body can't do what it once did.  Nothing can change that.  

 

As for Holland, he'll never be fired.  The Ilitch family has given him immunity long ago.

"A #13 Red Wings jersey was signed by the entire team in dressing room on Monday - The handwriting is on more than just the wall"...

I still want to be hopeful, but this doesn't sound good...

#2673451 Who gets the "A" when datsyuk leaves?

Posted by TheCaptain19 on 24 April 2016 - 10:31 PM

You can't give it to a 19 year old.  

Chicago gave the C to a 19 year old. That turned out pretty well.
