#2273662 3/24 GDT : Hurricanes 4 at Red Wings 5

You guys are hilarious. I love seeing everyone jump back on the red wings' metaphorical **** once things improve. Many of you are the very definition of bandwagoners. I would love to see what some of you are like in real life. Some of your' comments display a complete lack of character. How do you all handle adversity in the real world? It's a hockey game, a form of entertainment, and guess what. Nothing you do has any affect on the outcome, it's asinine to freak out over such things.

If the last two periods were any indication of how this third will go, I think Babs should have Datsyuk play keepaway in the neutral zone for the first minute. After that, it's all systems go.

Got to stay out of the box. If the Wings can stay out of the box this period, I think they win in regulation.

Good to see the Wings getting their abysmal play out of the way before the playoffs.

One last thing I hope Cleary gets a season ending injury soon because he flat out sucks!


Or how about we hope he heals and plays better?

-->insert obligatory post complaining about everything imaginable and how there's no chance we're going to beat team x/y/z in the playoffs<--

Wings lead the league in wins, are tied in the NHL for points, have the second best goal differential in the NHL, but we're all being secretly deceived and know they will get bumped out in the second round of the playoffs because:

Hudler, who despite having a career year, is 'the worst top best awful great forward' in the NHL.

Think a 3-goal win on the road without your best two players is a good thing? Think again. Clear indication of a team who is going to get knocked off in the second round, probably by San Jose or St Louis who haven't lost to Columbus this month...

they played a terrible 50 minutes and then got a couple goals, the first being incredibly lucky.

does that change the piss-poor effort? the abysmal special teams? hudler being generally awful?

i hope teams aren't planning on taking shots at datysuk, because this team won't win a playoff game without him.


Boy, are you bitter.

why? They both had 21 points the last 2 playoff's and Hossa is a much bigger threat than Franzen, faster, stronger and quicker shot. The last two and a half season's is just proof who the Wings should have kept.


Hossa was on 3 teams that made it to the Stanley Cup Finals and put up a +11 plus/minus in the playoffs. Franzen is +36 in his career. Franzen averages .44 goals per game in the playoffs, Hossa averages .28. Franzen averages .86 points per game in the playoffs, Hossa averages .76. Franzen also had 5 game winning goals the season the Wings won the cup. Pretty clutch.

While I think Franzen was a bit overpaid, it was still a better deal than the $63 million bill the Blackhawks paid.

Not saying Hossa sucks, or Mule is better, but I think signing Hossa to that long of a contract coming off a couple of injury seasons wasn't a bad move when Franzen is pretty good in the playoffs.

No matter what, I will always despise Franzen and Hudler and will never get over the fact that they kept Franzen over Hossa.


Come April-time, I'm okay with not having Hossa.

I feel a big 3rd period for the Wings. Much like the last 4 minutes of last game. They were hungry and unbeatable. No way they were going to lose that.

They just need to minimize the odd man breaks and keep blocking shots. They finally started a hard forecheck that last period and started playing Detroit hockey.... puck possession, great cycling, and good higher percentage shots that aren't blocked.
