I defended Holland last summer, the trade deadline, and now... FED UP
get rid of this sack of useless potatoes. He, Quincey and Cleary can go to a beach together and never return. Seriously, not only did he sign the guy NOBODY wanted back, but he gave him a raise to boot, and he was already way overpaid before. Missed out on every free agent?!? EVERY ONE?!? not a single player in the nhl wants to go to Detroit? I don't care what anyone says, Jim was the better choice for GM, look at the things he has done in dallas

If you guys want to know why people want Canada to lose at hockey, just read this thread. The entitlement runs deep. I've read several posts that have already awarded Canada gold so I don't even know why they're still playing the games since nobody else even has a chance. Talk about rose-coloured glasses.
I'm with LeftWinger, I want Canada to lose every chance they get, BECAUSE of the entitlement. Having said that, I definitely want to play Canada in this tournament so I can see the maple tears fall from the heavens (and so there are no excuses). I'd prefer it was for gold, but I'll take a ticket to the gold on their backs.
The US can win this and so can Canada, but they play the games for a reason.
Right, the long posts that take up every page belittling Canada, and not giving them any respect is so much better. Wanna know why the US hasn't won the gold in 30 some years, it's overly inflated egos, thinking your better at everything and no one works as hard as you. Comparing Slovenia Slovakia Norway and Austria is like arguing with a child, it's pointless, and at the end of the day you don't sound any smarter for it. Just read through these posts if you need to figure out why pretty much every country hates the usa, sorry to say it but at this point I honestly hope USA gets upset in the quarter finals just so you guys shut up already about how the US has the greatest hockey team to ever grace Olympic ice.
I just wanted to start a topic for us to say Thanks to the Red Wings for providing us with a great regular season despite all the adversities and drama and odds against us! (Thank God, we didn't hear the "Too Old" card this year.)
So, despite all of this:
Nick Lidstrom retiring
Tomas Holmstrom retiring
Brad Stuart trade
New Asst. Coach
Losing out on Parise, Suter, Schultz, Doan and every other "Top" UFA
Countless injuries to our Defense creating our youngest average D since Nick and Vladdy were Rookies
Gustavsson hurting himself and never really turning into a reliable backup
Losing Helm for the season (again)
Losing Bertuzzi's experience and Sammy to injury
(I am sure that I am leaving something out)
But anyway, despite all of this and despite the experts having us out of the playoffs for the first time since I turned 20, THE Detroit Red Wings proved once again, that when it comes to being a perennial winning team in the NHL, nobody does it better! Eat that Olsen Twins!
SO, Despite all the above mentioned scenarios that were supposed to have us dwelling at the bottom of the NHL, you guys did it. No matter where you go in the playoffs, this is a winning season and every other team in the league is just shaking their heads right now!
Watch out NHL, don't look now, because the Red Wings just rebuilt on the fly and will be back on top sooner than you can say 22 straight years!
THANK YOU DETROIT RED WINGS for a regular season to remember! (now lets spoil some parties!)
