I liked this one a lot. Most of it is spot on. If I had a nickel for every "How many cups", "Cleary and Abby in the top six", or "Bettman wants us to lose" comment I've read (on this forum alone) I'd be a rich man. What's the difference between us saying it to or about each other and someone else doing it? Good satire is funny because there's an element of truth to it. We do have a comparatively s***ty top six. Many Wings fans are bangwagoners from the glory days of the nineties, and we do go on and on about conspiracies. But in the end those are all relatively transient and therefore insignificant aspects of an otherwise storied franchise.
Who cares, just laugh it off. A far more damning criticism of the Detroit Red Wings would be if their fans became humorless d*cks just because they didn't win the Cup ever year. Then we'd truly be the Yankees of hockey.
