The bias in this thread is epic


#2280253 For once I agree with Don Cherry

Sidney Crosby is a little *****.

He's a concussion away from being irrelevant.

Vandyfan84- "Are you really trying to say jimmy Howard is in the conversation with Rinne? That's rich right there"



I really hope this is just about the Vezina because if it isnt and you are generally saying that Jimmy shouldnt be in the same conversation as Pekka we'll have to discuss this further.



Well this will be Pekks second invitation to Las Vegas as a Vezina finalist. Even though I don't think he will win it. Quick wins it in my opinion

Wings in five. Howard=Rinne. Wings offense>>Preds offense. Preds Defense>Wings defense. Preds special teams>>Wings Special Teams. Wings proven playoff performers>>>>>Preds proven playoff performers. Franzen>>>>>>>>>Preds.


And this is the disrespect I was speaking of.

Not to mention that Jimmy started in 16 less games than Rinne, mostly due to injury. The goaltender match up is even. The gap that this person is trying to argue doesn't exist.

And wins for a goalie are like wins for a pitcher, they don't mean s***. To use them as some sort of proof that one goalie is better than another is asinine.



Really? If you want to use a baseball analogy...then why is a 300 game winner so meaningful? Why are 20 win seasons such a milestone? I thought they didn't mean s***.

Why? Have you read this thread? I don't think there's much confidence floating around most Wings fans right now.



Yes I have. However, you're still the effing red wings. I think there are some ridiculous predictions on both ends of the spectrum

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story. The Red Wings scored more goals and gave up fewer than the Predators. I'll give you special teams, but I'm not buying the defense and goaltending being on another level. Jimmy Howard was in Vezina contention until his injury in February.


Are you really trying to say jimmy Howard is in the conversation with Rinne? That's rich right there

omg i was gonna give u the benefit of the doubt but now i am gonna downright debunk everything u just said. Yah the Hawks blew a 4-0 lead to ur team but ur team still managed to lose... congrats. First of all, the Hawks have had s*** defence ALL YEAR... and their goaltending has been pathetic so bragging about that to us Wings fans is very laughable... and Jimmy Howard is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better then Crawfard!!!!! You say Rinne is lightyears better than Jimmy well let me ask you something. Before Jimmy got injured back in Februrary did you know he was on pace to BEAT BRODEUR's record of wins in a single NHL season of 49?? I didn't see Rinne doing that.

- Like I said you have a well balanced team, but you simply do NOT have the lethal offensive power stars that the Wings do so don't pretend that you can match that.
- Honestly if you are gonna come to these forums, at least raise truthful points, not just jibberish that makes Nashville fans look bad.



2 things. Injuries are part of the game. You just look petty when you blame misfortunes on I juries. And being on pace to do something and actually doing it are two different things. Holla at me when you learn that. Last I checked, Rinne led the NHL in wins with 43.

If you don't think the Preds have the offensive firepower to win games, just ask the Hawks. They had a 4-0 lead and the next thing you know it is 4-4. Now they're goaltending is suspect for Corey Crawford still trumps Jimmy Howard.

And do you even know who our other defenseman are?! They're not big names like Weber and Suter but they'll match the physicality and toughness of anything Detroit will throw out there.

You win big games by defense and goaltending. Both of which we are tops in the league. Our defense is at least even if not better and our goaltending is on another level. Howard can't hold Rinnes jock. That's not opinion. That's fact. BTW Preds end reg season one itch number 1 PP. top 10 in GS, GA, PK, PP.

This is going to be an all out war and I for one can't wait

As I said I am confident the Wings will come out flying in this series. If they can somehow catch the Preds off guard and steal BOTH games in Nashville then it will be a sweep and that COULD HAPPEN. The preds do not have a lot of playoff experience and they have a team this year that is EXPECTED TO WIN. Because of this new expectation that has been placed on them, that might have a negative impact on some of their key players in the playoffs because the playoffs are a whole different ball game. So the Preds could come out nervous and get hit by the Wings early and like I said if that happens then we sweep. More likely is that we win 1 of the 2 games in Nashville then come home to win both games and then win the series in game 5 or 6. Regardless I don't think the Preds will be able to contain our top guns.

So the series will either open Wednesday night or Thursday night and I am REALLY HOPING it is Thursday because I have 2 exams on Thursday and if the Wings have a game Wednesday night I don't see much studying getting done lol!



Exsqueeze me?! We don't have playoff experience? Have you been living under a rock? We've been in the playoffs 7 of the last 8 years. Yeah, that's not experience

Btw...no one in smashville is takin this series lightly. We know what's at stake. We know it's gonna be a death match. We are sensing some major disrespect from a lot of wings fan.
