#2125882 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by sputman on 04 March 2011 - 08:02 AM

The playoffs are a completely different game. Nothing we've seen this season can give us an idea of how good or bad somebody will be in the playoffs. Everyone plays better defensively, Howard is very capable of just getting on a hot streak like he did last year and dominating. Philly is really good and most likely going to take the East, but Boucher and Bobrovosky have little to no playoff experience. I wouldn't be surprised to see them get bounced. Vancouver hasn't shown anything in the playoffs yet. I'll worry about them more when they get past the 2nd round.

I like the Wings chances this year to win it all. Nobody has more depth or experience. We have the best coach and the better players. Instead of focusing on what we don't have, focus on what we DO have.


yeah come playoff time everything is ramped up a little.

i guess that means that salei gets 5 hooking penalties a game as opposed to his usual 2-3.


#2121944 Ericsson vs Ott

Posted by sputman on 25 February 2011 - 07:05 AM

i came home from class and the 2nd period was ending with them down 3-0 and getting pushed around (i missed the howard scrum but saw them jawing at him at the end of the period).

my wife asked if i was going to stay up and watch the rest of the game and i said that i would, because i wanted to see if the team would respond like men.

honestly, that ericsson fight was one of the best things i've seen all year, just from the standpoint of somebody saying "enough already with your bulls*** against my teammates."

That mustache alone would make me s*** myself if I were about ready to throw down with him.

I think Gillies should be too for that flying elbow and throwing punches on a guy who's clearly hurt.


that was garbage, i agree. and then he sits there flapping his mustache at him while he's down.

The wings are giving the preds a ton of room to skate with as they bring the puck into our zone. Explain it.

The wings defense is getting handled while being forechecked. Explain it.

The wings cannot maintain any kind of pressure while on offense. Explain it.

This team is not known for these problems. Why is this going on? The offense was able to hide the flaws previously but as of late it is really exposing the fact that if the wings don't score a lot of goals every night they are going to have problems winning games. This is my point. And this is a recipe for disaster in the playoffs.


you're right, the wings are giving the preds a ton of room to skate. they are doomed and the coach should be fired.

you're right, the wings cannot maintain any kind of pressure. they are doomed and the coach should be fired.

you're right, this team is known to never give any team any room to skate and continuously applies pressure every game every year, without exception. they are doomed and the coach should be fired.

i honestly can't explain why the wings aren't scoring more often. it's not from a lack of talent or effort. but regardless, they are doomed and the coach should be fired.
