You don't hate to say I told you so. Seeing as how usually only show up here after a Wings loss, it's exactly what you hope for.  Apparently you didn't get all the taunting out of your system over on hfboards.

If you have a point to make about the game, make it. Keep appearing just to stir things up however, and your stay will be short lived.

A pre-emptive warning, let's everyone just stay on topic about the game.


 In my defense though, I did make one note about the game. You all seem to think that Minnesota plays the neutral zone trap (ala Dave Tippit in PHO) but I was able to set you straight (as someone who watches every Wild game) and inform you that it is actually a 1-2-2 system that Yeo runs. It just looked like a trap to you because most of your 38 shots came from outside the dots and Backstrom smothered anything that wasn't. I do have a question though.. It seems to me that Nyquist was one of your better forwards last night and he is apparently your organizations best prospect. He's been in the minors for some time now, why is he not a main stay in your lineup? Is Justin Abdelkator really better than him or did he run over Babcock's dog or something? 


Yeah, must of been a fun game when things are going your way all game long. Think of this, if they called that an actual goal, we would of been tied, 1-1. So you guys make it 2-1 and then when our first goal counted it would of actually been 2-2. You guys score 2 more goals but then I guarantee with the game closer, Datsyuk would of bury that puck and then Miller goal. This game would of been completely different if they call that an actual goal.

Are you saying the score of the game effected Datsyuk's play? Im confused.

 Ahhh that was a fun game to watch. Usually I hate to say I told you so to people but man.. I really nailed it on the head with the Parise/Suter signings and I think that based on what I saw from Detroit tonight, I was right about the western conf. playoff picture not including the motor city. I also should point out that the Wild don't play the trap (1-3-1) they play the 1-2-2. Same as most teams in the league. We are just very good at limiting a teams quality chances. Even if the refs got that call wrong, which I am not entirely sure Millers stick doesn't make contact with the puck as I was not on the ice and couldn't see what the ref saw, Backy gave it back to Miller there at the end. That was generous of him right?

Looks like it could be a long shortened season for y'all. And apparently CBJ is at least on par with Nashville so that's no longer a gimmie game... Then you have Dallas and Minnesota in a row.. They better figure it out pretty quick if playoffs are going to be remotely possible. Tough draw to start out with though. Probably one of the top 2 teams in the entire conference on the road is not a favorable matchup. Should be interesting to see where your season goes from here.

We've already beat to death the fact that the Thunder Buddies wives said they were going to Minnesota. The issue needs to die already just like their careers and cup dreams will there.

Hahaha. This actually makes me laugh! I agree with Axe's post. Not a good offseason.

You try to argue that Kronwall isn't a #1, well what exactly is Suter then? Because he sure as f*** hasn't proven himself as a #1 either yet. But, you like to tell all of us on this site we have no clue about hockey and that because Mr Suter didn't sign in Detroit that we are no longer a premier spot for FA's. Man, people like you make me laugh. What do you have to offer to the table? You can argue with anyone of us, but in the end you'll lose. Because your ridiculous opinions are based on beliefs that your favorite team with no history are better then an original 6 team. I'd argue with you for hours, because I'm passionate about hockey because it's the best damn sport on the face of this earth. And guys like you that don't know what your talking about, but pretend too, to get hockey fans that may be new to the sport or maybe don't know so much just to get a reaction really riles me up. Grow up, you want to have a real argument on here? Believe me, there's a ton of posters who'll school you on what you think you "believe" about hockey. You have to have a passion for a sport to LOVE it. You seem to me, nothing more, then a troll finding a sport where you think you can degrade people by talking down to them because you think you're superior. You are not, find a new website. I'm tired of your spamming bulls***, I'll take a suspension if it means my fellow Wings fans can just discuss hockey without having to hear your crap in every thread on the go lately.


I had to laugh a little bit here. Of all my posts I've ever made here, this one was pretty tame. Ironic! All I said was Kronwall isn't fit to be a #1 defenseman at least not on a good defensive team. It's also ironic that you go on a rant about me apparently knowing nothing about hockey and here you're post has nothing to even do with hockey except for one or two sentences where you make broad statements. The point is, Kronwall is a 35 point defenseman while playing behind Nicklas Lidstrom. He proved that. But now Lidstrom is gone. Stuart is gone. Kronwall has been anointed #1 honors and is being forced into a roll he's never had to play in his NHL career. So let's see what he can do playing against the best of the best (like Suter has). If you're a realistic fan, you would have concerns too.

Sounds much like a certain family guy and the same can be said and the same will have to be seen....but I would expect you dont agree with that now do you?

Suter played top line minutes. Kronwall did not. Prove me wrong.
