In Topic: Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Anyone who was a Red Wings fan during this particular time knew this to be true. I thought it was pretty much common knowledge.

 

I was a Wing fan during that time and actually friends with people in and around the team.  I think this was probably written by some sports writer as an assumption and people went with it.  I just wonder how that would have started because it isnt like he would come out and say "Yeah, I am tired of living in Steve Yzermans shadow" or anything similar.

Absolutely. One of the main reasons why he left. He wanted to be "the guy". I recall some media at the time pumping him up as the best player in the world, married to a hot young Anna K, etc. I'm sure alot of that went to his head, which was already pretty swelled. Too bad leaving never worked out for him, because as you mentioned, his play slipped dramatically once he left Detroit.

 

I am not sure where this rumor started.  I hear this from a lot of Wings fans and I am not sure I have ever heard anything to back that up.

IF you don't think they played well over their heads (and talent level) to even get here you're part of the problem, not the solution.  Enjoy your status quo.


I agree they did. That's my point.

I know how can anybody be critical when this team has has SO MUCH SUCCESS in the past five years. We should just get the Stanley cup for not losing a series in 6 or less games, what an amazing accomplishment.


How far did you think THIS team would go ? I'm not sure you are being realistic if you expected much. Look at our roster, it isn't that impressive.

Well....Kindl got the goal you all were saying he was going to get....I guess....
 
Seriously - Fire Holland - let Babs walk and REBUILD THIS FRIKIN ROSTER ALREADY.


Because our team, who nobody picked to win took one of the best teams in the league to 7 games.
