Babcock did the same thing with the Ducks and he was pretty successful in Anaheim.

I think the point most are missing on the streak is say the Wings win the cup in 2016. They will have won in 97/98, 02, 08, and 16 (hypothetically). That's 5 Cups in 20 years, and outside of 97/98, none within 4 years of the other all while never missing the playoffs. Prolonged excellence with little to no down period is unheard of in today's sports world. As much as the last five seasons have sucked for us it's only because of how good we have had it.
If rather rebuild on the fly, as they have put it, than tank with the chance that we would be building toward nothing anyway.

Not only did he get the hat trick but I really liked the way he scored them. Two of the three he went to the net and waited for the rebound on one and the pass on the other. Other than screening we don't see enough Wings skating hard to the net looking to make something happen. The wrap around was nice to see as well. That was the first of the WJ games I've seen this year. I was impressed but would like to see what he does against a higher quality opponent.

I thought Patterson played well. He didn't have any highlight stops but got the job done after the two early goals.

You have to remember that we are still in a lockout shortened and affected season. In a normal year, the Finals would have ended three weeks ago.
