I've been waiting for this game since last Saturday's game. The Sens knocked the Wings all over the ice last game. It's time for the Wings to pay back the favors (I wouldn't be disappointed if Spezza or Ryan get knocked out for a few games from the "legal" hits that Shanny is going to overlook).
It sucks that 22 can't be called up but I'm hoping that some other players step up and play a more physical game.

I am not even mad that we continue to lose. I am mad that we continue to lose because Ken Holland and Mike Babcock willingly do not ice our best team. It is ridiculous that Cleary is still playing on this team and the best part is, Babcock promoted him to the top line. Then, right away on that line, Cleary takes a retarded penatly. BUT then in the last minute, Babcock has CLEARY on the ice?!?!?!? I am sorry but I am really starting to think that Babcock needs to go, I mean this is just ridiculous.
And Holland is at blame to for re-signing Cleary and willingly playing Nyquist, who was one of our BEST PLAYOFFS performers last year, play in the minors. This team needs goals; secondary scoring. Yes getting Alfie and Weiss (I hope Weiss) back will help, but Nyquist would add so much more to this team then Cleary and Sammy.
It is sickening to watch this I just cannot fathom why Babcock and Holland are not playing their best possible team.
I pretty much lost all faith in Babs when he put Cleary on the ice with less than a minute left in the game. I'm recording Thursday's night game but I'm watching the NFL game live instead. Something is "clearly" messed up in management and coaching and I just can't waste my time watching this team anymore as long as Cleary and Sammy get any ice time.
Looking forward to seeing Helmer back in the lineup. It's kind of sucks that Glendening is getting sent back down. He reminds of Helm. Hopefully we will get to see them together on the same line (I recall Mickey mentioning a few games back that they were planning on doing that).
Dos anybody else wish Joey Kocur was behind the bench as an assistant coach again? Especially with Roy behind the bench. Now that could have been a lot of fun. Although I'm sure Babs could hold his own against the wife beater.
I think that everyone is quite disappointed that the Wings blew a 3-1 series lead. But did you watch the season opener against the Blues? That game was like watching an NHL team playing an ECHL team. Did you watch the Hawks blow away the Wings in Game 1 of this series and for the most part everyone wrote this series off as a Hawk’s sweep?
This season has been the roller coaster season that probably nobody could have ever predicted. You have to remember that the Wings had to win their last four games of the season because the Wild and Jackets did the same thing. The Wings also lost their two top D in the off season.
I've been a fan for over 20 years (and I have probably watched more games than most of you on this forum) and I have never witnessed the adversity that this team has gone through this year with the loss of top players and the injuries that basically kept two of the top six forwards out for the whole shortened season.
This team didn't lose any assets at the trade deadline and still pushed into a Game 7 in the second round of the playoffs. Not too shabby if you ask me. Going forward, the Wings can get rid of a few contracts and have the picks for a few trades, and have some cap room to improve a younger team that is only going to improve with the opportunities that they have been given this season and into the playoffs. The future looks quite bright for the Wings.
I mean is anyone in shock right now? I mean I'm sitting here happy as hell but I amf****** shocked! To me this series STILL isn't over but who would have thought we'd be up 3-1 against the "best team in hockey" in the second round. Unrea
Surprised the Wings made the playoffs; Amazed the Wings made it to the second round; and yes Shocked the Wings are up 3-1 after watching game 1. This team has no quit. So fun to watch now.
