This is from the Bruins eulogy:

Kings fans are chanting "HILLER!" and he's not even in net. :hysterical:


LA is a hockey hotbed, didn't you know?

#2515755 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

Boston is the best team the Wings have faced in the playoffs in my viewing life time. Even the sweep losses were more competitive.


Boston is a great team but they aren't really being tested.


This is the WORST Red Wings team in the last 22 seasons. The last time the Wings were minus in goal differential was 1990-91... the season the playoff streak started. The pts% this season was .567... the worst since 1990-91 (tied with the 1998-99 team but that team didn't have the benefit of overtime loser points and shootout wins.) The last time a Wings team finished worse than 3rd in their division was 1989-90.


Our 4th liners are grinding but can't chip in with timely goals.

The "kids" are nowhere to be seen (something about this being a 'man's league.')

Datsyuk is a one-man show... the rest of the veterans are either injured, over the hill, have mental issues, or have some other excuse.

Our defencemen are... well... frustrating to watch. Kronwall and Ericsson should be our #3 and #4 defencemen not our top pair.

We have no balls. Tootoo is buried in the minors and Bertuzzi had a lobotomy.

Howard is not an elite goalie. We can win the cup with him if we have a roster like the '08 team. The 2014 Wings need a late '90s Hasek to be contenders.


The bottom line is that this Wings team extended the playoff streak and with all the injuries this season that's quite an accomplishment. Everything else is a bonus.

Would it have really been that much worse if instead of Andersson we had Bert or Tootoo in the lineup?

Marchand is an elite pest and crease crasher, I wish Detroit had a guy like him.


We did.

Leino helped us out to beat NJ in the shootout.



I just realised Leino has 0 goals in 52 games this season.  :scared:

If we could surgically take Franzen's knees and put them on Cleary we'd have a heck of a hockey player.


You should update your Quincey Suck Stats. They've gotten worse...  :paperbag3:

Weird thing about Alfredsson... He either has games where he scores and you think "that guy's got a great shot" or games where you seriously ask yourself "I wonder why Alfredsson was scratched tonight?"

Babcock just said that Datsyuk is back on Thursday.


Edit: It was a phone interview with Sportsnet (Millard, Kypreos, and MacLean). The guys asked him to confirm if Pavel will play on Thursday and he said "that's what I hear".
