Go with 2002 WCF Wings Avs game 6. Freakin awesome, and it'll show you just how good Hasek really was.
In fact. If you can, watch that entire series. It truly was the greatest rivalry I've ever seen and the games were so intense.
I second this. Of my favorite teams, this was the best series I experienced. 2 weeks of stress which finished with a Wings 7-0 win. We won the rivarly against the Avs, and I was thrilled! I'll never forget jumping around the living room Game 7 screaming after every goal! I think it's safe to say, I'll never experience a better series, it had it all.
In October if someone told us we'd finish 3rd in the division (assuming we hold on tonight), we'd all be thrilled! We moved up a couple spots compared to last season. I think the Wings accomplished their goals for the year. Let's see what happens in the playoffs!
Anyone who complains about the in game entertainment at the Joe should attend a sporting event in Toronto. Toronto treats their fans like a bunch of 12 year olds with ADD. EVERY stoppage in play, they either blast music so loud to the point where you can't even talk to the person sitting beside you, or the person in the stand with the mic is talking. They don't give you any time to talk about the game with the people around you. I stopped going to Toronto sporting events because I found the in game entertainment insulting.
Speak for yourself, despite one bad month, I've enjoyed watching this team.
I question if we do were not really a top 5-8 fan base in the league the joe is pretty pathetic
Have you even been to the Joe? It's loud!
I would say we have the weakest fanbase (CURRENTLY) out of the "Original Six" teams. Then you can add in Pittsburgh, Philly, Vancouver, and Winnipeg. So we might make a case for #10, but even that would be contested.
I do agree with you, though...the new arena should help things greatly. The Joe is a dump with nicely placed seats.
I wouldn't think twice about losing Hudler and Filppula. The majority of Wings fans wanted Hudler gone after 2010-11, and Filppula is over paid. I think Tatar and Nyquist will be better players then them, if they aren't already are.
