Good point. I seem to remember Ericcson missing the net on a slap shot from the right point that swung around the boards and led to a fast break goal for the Penguins in the 2009 finals. Someone feel free to fact check me on that.

Sounds familiar. How about this one; I was at the game. 2010 Playoffs. Game 3 against San Jose, trailing 2-0 in the series. Game goes into overtime. Jason Williams, who didn't see a second of ice time in the 3rd period finds himself on a 2-on-1 with Dan Cleary, if I'm not mistaken. In true Jason Williams fashion, he tees up his last slapshot as a Red Wing. It was approximately 3' high and 8' wide of the net. It wrapped around the glass right to Joe Thornton who sent Patrick Marleau in all alone to score the game winning goal.

I have it on good authority that Brandon Prust will be a Red Wing in 2012-13.

Take that for what it is, coming from a 26 year-old native of London, Ontario.

Regardless of who is individually better/worse/equal in comparison to 2008, I think it's pretty obvious that the competition is a lot scarier. Dallas and Colorado were both only as good as their hot goalies at the time, and Pittsburgh was young and just learning about what it took. Nashville gave the Wings a good run that year until Detroit figured it out and got into playoff mode. Osgood stood on his head throughout the playoffs and not many Wings had two bad games in a row. I remember actually LIKING Lebda during that run.

I guess my point is, if we're going to compare the individual Red Wings of '08 to the Wings of today, let's also take into consideration the 4 (hopefully) teams they may have to face.
