I think it's a bummer that Detroit was out after the first round...but it happens. We really have been spoiled with such great success and now setting records at home and making the playoffs for 21 years in a row doesn't satisfy anybody. Just think how many players would have sold their souls to even be a part of the playoffs and we have an entire team full of guys who have never experienced the crushing blow that is coming in ninth in the conference...
I'm happy with our team and even though it could be improved (what team can't be?) I'm not worried about the management ever letting this "decline" get very far.
If you wanna see a decline go ask the Oilers how life has been since 90'
Just because he doesn't eat the s*** sandwhich put on his plate by arrogant fans/management doesn't mean he doesn't cheer for the team to win.
The s*** sandwhich being....the team? the idea that the team is awesome? I don't see why some of you bother being "fans" of a team that you hate so much about? this is beyond constructive criticism at this point.
Holy Jesus am I ever sick of clicking on a new thread, all excited to read something new and then seeing the SAME things posted by the SAME people. I still love LGW but some of the new posters (yes my post count is low but I'm not brand new) are driving me insane.
Also, number9 took the words right out of my mouth. "Can't win it all every year..."
Can someone please explain to me why Paul Gaustad is so highly though of around here? He doesn't score (7 goals, 14 assists), he doesn't fight (4 fights, 2 wins, 2 loses), he's not that big (6'5, 212 lbs), he's not fast, and he makes 2.5 million dollars. Presumably everyone wants him because he's a defensive forward who's good in the faceoff circle. We definitely don't have anybody like that...er...Justin Abdelkader: (8 goals, 14 assists), (6 fights, 2 wins, 4 loses), (6'1, 215 lbs.), is faster, makes 1.7 million less, and is a defensive forward who's respectable in the faceoff circle.
I'm confused. Do they want respect or do they want everybody on a Wings forum to sit here and compliment the Preds over and over? I haven't really seen any disrespect on here at all and the comments that are being labeled as disrespectful seem to be any comment where we state that the Wings are better in any area. Hate to break it to you buddy but on a Red Wings forum, people are likely going to favor the Wings...go figure.
This will be one hell of a series.
