I'm nothing but optimistic! I started this thread just to keep everyone, that chooses to view it, up to date on the current odds.
I'm pretty sure the Wings will squeak in and then - who knows what can happen!
Nothing wrong with being optimistic. I got put in charge of planning a bachelors party that is going to start out with watching the Wings/Leafs game ( starting at 4:00P M Vegas time and the groom is an Avs fan). I'm just going to have to find a hockey friendly bar in Vegas to start things off.
The Hangover 4 might come out earlier than you think!

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.
