In Topic: 4/9 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Pens 4 (SO). Wings clinch playoff spot!

I guess my point was that "public opinion" (around here and league-wide) is pretty much as you'd expect it to be, the one noteworthy exception being that most people here believe we're fully capable of knocking off one of the top two seeds in the first round. If memory serves (and it's certainly possible that it doesn't), we were much more worried about the Ducks last season than we are about the Penuins now.


League-wide, I think hockey fans generally hold the Wings in high regard.


Part of that might be Malkins injury, Pavels return and Fleurys postseason habits. ;)

Actually I like almost any possible matchup in the East for some reasons, if we're halfway healthy. Shows you how much the East sucks - with that D of ours, even if everybody was on board, I stil wouldn't like our chances vs most West teams..

I don't think Monster looked awesome, actually pretty much below average, but "bad" is a little harsh considering the way those goals developed. ;)


I liked what I saw from Pavel. Needs to be seen how much is about conditioning and how much is about his knee, but his hockey IQ is so off the charts, he makes the teams better even if he's just at 70%.

All of that would've gone easier hadn't Jimmy given up that weak goal...


...oh, and the rest of the guys playing for three periods, of course...
