#2599750 ECQF Game 4 GDT : Lightning 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) - Series Tied 2-2

Posted by VM1138 on 23 April 2015 - 09:10 PM

The series is tied.
Its nowhere near over boys and girls. Let's all have some faith, if it doesn't work, then we all have plenty of time to bitxh and moan.

I admire your optimism, but this game was the Wings at their best. They haven't played a better game. And they lost. Now Tampa, just an hour ago a shaken team, has all the confidence and momentum going home, where they have the best record. And they are no longer doubting themselves. This was the high water mark of the Wings season.

That wasn't a penalty.  Babcock needs to stop bitching, and Dekeyser needs to not go down so easily.

How many times do you have to dump the puck into the offensive zone, and then lose the puck battle on the boards, before you try something different?


This is the most one dimensional team in the league.  We are not Winnipeg, Columbus, or St. Louis.  Chip and chase hockey isn't going to work with this roster.  As long as Babcock continues to do the same thing, with the same results, we'll never win a god damn thing. 

#2593879 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

For the third time, I never said Yzerman created this policy. What I said was if this policy was NOT created by the owner or team president, I'm sure with his standing in the organization, Yzerman would have veto power.


Also, if my argument was that Yzerman created it (which is wasn't), telling me that Tony from the Lightning told you otherwise is NOT proof LOL!

What makes you think a general manager would have veto power over a teams ticket sales?

Can't believe there's people here actually bashing Yzerman.  So he didn't want to wait for Kenny to leave. Instead, he goes to Tampa, builds a good team and gets a 1st round pick for Kyle Quincey.  You gotta love it.  

#2593218 Why so negative?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 April 2015 - 02:43 PM

Not one media person is picking the Wings.

Screw all you negative nancy's and your fancy fantasies. Wings All The Way Brother. Now Can You Dig That Sucker.
In the words of Rick Flair...


How dare you?  You spelled Nature Boy's first name wrong.

Roboturner: This isn't a casino, this is a fan boosting site called lets go wings.


I just don't see the point in taking time out of your day to predict negative outcomes against your team, on your teams fan website.


It's like wearing a Tampa Bay jersey this Thursday because probability suggests they are more likely to win?


To be clear, this is a hockey discussion website.  Obviously most of us here are Wings fans and want the Wings to win, but some of that discussion will involve areas where we think the team is lacking. 


All discussion here is welcome as long as it is within forum rules, including viewpoints that are critical of the team or deemed negative by other members here.

I don't think he has any say in the matter. 


This is the playoffs, don't let angry discussions get bogged down with bothersome facts!

#2592696 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by darkmanx on 12 April 2015 - 04:08 PM

You want successful regular seasons you have to look at 01-02, or 07-08 or the ones one they got atleast a top 3 seed. This team hasn't been a Cup contender heading into the playoffs since the 2009 post season as since then they have been longshot dark horse teams. Successful regular season is when pretty much all of your series open at the Joe remember them?
In the 90's when the Wings had postseason results that mirrored the ones they had from 2010-present coaches were fired and if not for 97 Cup I bet Scotty Bowan would've been given the axe shortly after. Don't give me cap excuses b/c last time I checked a cap existed from 05-06 to 08-09 and the Wings were seeded no lower than #2 heading into each of those postseasons and were considered Cup favourites.
Since game 7 2009 this franchise has headed downhill for the most part as that game served as the end of a chapter in Wings lore. Right now we are in the 2005-2013 New England Patriots but I think our cup drought will last longer than the Patriots SB drought!

The Wings looked like s*** that game. It's like "You realize this ONE game decides if you win the cup"? At home nonetheless. Then Crosby skating the cup around the Joe ice when it was over was the barf on the cake.

I still won't watch replays of it.
When it comes up on the Wednesday night rivalry shows, or greatest games countdowns etc, I'll change it before it gets to a point to where they're going to be consistently hinting at it.
And I always say I'm too lazy to hold a grudge, but I'll hate the pens till the day I die for that.

Don't worry the rest of LGW will for you....unfortunately...


Yea, I know.  The one nice thing about playing/reffing hockey for the last 20 years is that I never turned into a "armchair fan".  I think a lot of fans critical of players, goaltending, or coaching would be a lot more understanding if they played the sport at least at the rec league level.

We just need a point if Boston loses.

I want that piece of s*** off this team right now!


He's been paid off by opposing teams.

The Poodle is ok with me, but Florida is only as good as Luongo is on a particular night.


Ya pretty much.

Let's just say that if some sad tragedy was to befall this Pittsburgh team, I wouldn't shed any tears.
