#2504053 Proud to be.....

Posted by Motown4013 on 30 March 2014 - 11:39 PM

I've always been proud to be a Wings fan. Classiest organization in all of sports, great leadership, passionate fan base, original six. Pride has always followed this organization....YZERMAN playing on one knee to lead his team and then him handing that cup to Konstintinov to show his dedication to such a brave man. The way that Zetterberg carried this team on his back to win 4 huge games to get into the playoffs last year. The medical staff, players and coaches who literally saved Jiri Fischers life on the bench after his collapse.

There is a lot to be proud of a team so rich in history and yet, somehow i find myself in disbelief about that this current team has done.
Three weeks ago this team was in 11th....certain to break the 22 year consecutive years to the post season. Things looked dismal and everyone was critical. Great teams have great players and usually a 1-2 punch. Perry and Getzlaf, Crosby and Malkin, Kane and Toews.....Zetterberg and Datsuyk. Only, we no longer have that 1-2 punch. We have the second most man games lost, but no team has had to endure losing such impact players. We have 6 guys that didn't start the year with this team but will not go down.

They are relentless. I keep waiting for Nyquist to be a fluke.....and he has just gotten better. A kid who wasn't on the roster when the puck dropped on then season and he leads the league over the last month in goals? That's fairy tale stuff.....and it's happening right before our eyes, every time this team plays. How about Glendening? This kid wasn't even a thought at the start of the year...now he's up against the top lines of teams shutting it down. Tatar, the day he lost his dad, kissing up to the sky in admiration, playing with a heart as heavy as an anvil......I could go on and on about the pride I feel in this organization and they way that they have overcome adversity.

I think we will make the playoffs...I know we WILL but even if we don't. Even if somehow the bounces don't go our way and we find ourselves out of the race April 13th, this team...this unbelievably dedicated, classy and big hearted team has made me prouder to be a wings fan......that's a lot to say in such a consistently successful organization.
Good on ya boys......" Dont stop believin'" and we will be just fine!!!!!
LGW!!! 23 all the way!

#2354543 Biggest mistake Red Wings have done

Posted by FlashyG on 12 February 2013 - 10:47 PM

It seems to me that the biggest "mistake" they made might have been cultivating a fan base that suffers from a massive sense of entitlement and lacks the ability to be grateful for the embarrassment of riches we've been provided.

 

That's just my opinion though.

Even garbage teams like the Flames dance around this soft defense... it's just awful to watch -.-

 

No one is forcing you to watch are they?

Ya'll are too damn negative. Last I checked it there is still a period and some change left to play and we are down by 1 AND on a PP. Have some faith.

Then Piss off and stop watching.

It is after games like this that I am ashamed to be a fellow Wings fan with some of you people! It is amazing how quick you turn on the very team that you claim to love and be a fan of. To the postter above, I bet when Nick comes back and the Wings get going headed into the playoffs you will be posting on here about what a great game the wings played, or the Wings looking great headed into the playoffs as a serious threat. I am going to keep my eye on your posts and if I see something like that I am going to remind you about the lame posts that you posted tonight.

For those of us Wings fans who remain LOYAL and have faith in our team, we will be saying we told you so when they start playing Red Wings hockey going down the stretch.

Mickey is the only source of optimism to be had in an otherwise horrible situation. He always says that theres light at the end of the tunnel, too bad its an oncoming freight train

I would have more respect if he actually called it like it was. Instead he sounds senial talking about bad bounces and buls***. Everyone here knows we will turn it around at some point, but don't glaze over how pathetic the play is.

Babcock: "just do things right" really Babcock? That's what youf****** say? Do things right? They haven't done s*** right in a month, good pep talk, that really motivates us fans.

OMG some you need to chill the F out. It's only a fricken game. It is frustrating for sure but for crying out loud some of you are talking stupid.

#2268082 Kronwall Destroys Voracek

Posted by The Greek on 07 March 2012 - 12:14 PM

What would have happened to Kronwall if there was no instigator rule?

I assume he would have been mugged and pummeled by Flyers players.


This is something that really pisses me off. I hate how in the NHL as of late, if you make a big legal hit someone expects you do drop the gloves.

"Personal reasons" means it's none of our business.


#2264207 Post-TDT: Red Wings stand pat, no additions

Posted by Seraph on 27 February 2012 - 05:34 PM

If a move had happened, you'd all be complaining about how we paid too much for it. This is precisely why Holland didn't pull the trigger on any deals. But now you are complaining about how we made no trades. You can't have it both ways. I'm sure viable offensive options were investigated and found to be suboptimal to the asking price.

Only with the Red Wings would you find fans complaining about the line-up when we're jockeying for first in the league. Have more faith in your boys. It'll be an interesting year, I think.

Wow, some people are REALLY taking this too far. This team wasn't struggling before the deadline by any means. With the recent news of defensive injuries, I would have bet a lot of grabbing a depth player, but that's purely so you're not scrambling if you get unlucky.

I've got faith in this team playing a lot more hockey, barring a string of injuries.
