Most of the comments here are embarassing. I wish a lot of people would either play hockey at a somewhat high/competitive level, or shut up a bit.
What has everyone here been crying for forever?
"Let the kids play"
"Get rid of Franzen"
Guess what? All of those are happening and still no one is happy. Hockey has ups and downs, you are not going to win every game and sometimes you're going to get smoked. It's a curve, especially with teams like Detroit who have players who are still learning what it takes. You don't figure out the NHL in a couple games, in a stretch of games or sometimes even in a season. It takes time. They're learning.
You think Pittsburgh is in a different class than Detroit(someone said this)? They have more talent, arguably, but they don't have leadership, heart, compete level and usually no work ethic. Have you watched all the games PIT has collapsed in? Have you taken a look at their record against their division?
I get that this is an internet forum and the point is to discuss hockey and the game at hand, but it doesn't HAVE to be a hyperbole tabloid styled bitchfest. It could be real discussion with thought, not ripping your favorite team to shreds because they didn't "punch Cindy in the face!"
I've never seen you around here, but you're alright.

Ya know what... Protect yourself first. Big gorrilla coming at you like that. I thought Mcquaid might have been near his head a bit. Gotta get your stick up. Not condoning the cross check to the throat but you have to protect yourself
All of a sudden, 1st in the East. You gotta love the prowess of this squad and the consistent winning, it's a heck of a lot less stressful than the injury plagued previous season that seemed to diminish the spirit of a lot of the fans.
Let's continue the winning ways, the butt pats, and the dignified victories. It's a lot more fun all around when things are rolling this smooth.
Just got in from helping the parents move. I saw the TinkyWinky one-timer on NHL network when I turned the TV on. What's the quick recap? (Too funny they were playing the light a mup song in the arena when i turned the game on (unfortunately I'm stuck with the Coyotes feed).
