Mule or no Mule. Clowe or no Clowe. No excuses tonight, ladies and gents. Here's the final open post of this series. Next stop - Vancouver.
Game Seven - BRING IT!!!
Well, that was a disappointing end to a season. I have to say...with white jerseys falling all over the ice...and no calls. If it was both ways, I wouldnt complain. But all in all, i have to say that I didnt listen to one single word of the announcers or intermission reports after hearing an oh so familiar phrase... "This may be the spark this franchise needs". The last time I heard this was our second battle with Pittsburgh.
Oh well, I am still an avid Red Wings fan, I have to thank the boys for an exciting year right to the end. Hopefully next year we can make some strong off season moves and acquire some players we will actually play in much needed situations. Its all in the hands of Mr. Kenny Holland. Have Faith! GO WINGS AND THANK YOU!
@whitey430343 I love Redwings hockey. Avid??? No FANATIC.. And I'm not fucking happy right now .PP ENTRY??? What the fuck happened????????????
The Wings will be back, they are the greatest team in sport. No matter what a misguided Sharks fan might think or say; no one has the class and consistency of the Red Wings. They gave it their all.
I just pray that Nick comes back next year.
@LamontCranston I still think we must have not been practicing our pp entry's or something because that was disgraceful... I was involved with a shit talking session with a sharks fan and a few of us before the series started and someone said about last year, that if we had 15 pp ops in the first two games they would have been blowouts.. Well folks we had13 to wrap up this sereis and we didn't get a fucking one of them........What the fuck happened to our entry???????? Like I said, that WAS the difference.
can I ask one fucking question????? What happened to our powerplay entry that we had for the last ten years where we have two d bring it up and drop pass to either pav or z or fill?????? Easy stick handle into the zone and drop it to the d..... What happened to that???? can someone tell me cuz they weren't even trying it. That and not playing Mo. I have never second guessed babbles in my life but 0 for 13 powerplay for the end of the series..... That was the difference.. Was SJ doing something to negate it or did we just abandon it???? someone fucking tell me!!!!!!!! I'm so pissed right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@BLOOD RED Im fucking pissed too. I have to agree, we wasted all this money and time on Mike Modano and then sat him? I am second guessing that. We could have picked up a younger faster defensemen that would have replaced Ericsson who has played terrible all season. Turnovers kill us. How bout that dddd character that has nothing better than to talk about detroit. Must be a bandwagon pittsburg fan
@moorecha @whitey430343 Ya know... The Mo thing peeves me but we shoulda won the game anyway. I can't stress enough how pissed I am at our pp. How many times have you heard " Lidstrom carries past center. Drops to Datsyuk who stick handles over the line. Datsyuk into the corner, kicks it out to Kronwall. SHOOTS!! Tipped by Holmstrom who SCORES!!!!!!! A powerplay goal for Detroit". WTF BABS???
@BLOOD RED i felt that was the one thing the sharks did very well. deny the power play entry. the rest was horse cock.
@TwigBut we didnt even try our signature entry...... NOT FUCKING ONCE, that I remember. we improvised a little and made some lateral passes but you know hat im talking about when i describe a dman bringing it up and dropping it to a forward with some hands and easy entry and drop to the d or fast break play on net. NOT FUCKING ONCE.. It was like it was a different team......
A valiant effort....too bad it was not meant to be. But we know they'll be there again next year, for the 21st consecutive time. Go Wings!
How does it feel, bitches? Are you sad? Are you crying? Good. Fuck you stupid fucking Sped Wing fans. Take the shit off your houses, amputate your seven legged octopussies, and jump off the fucking bandwagon.
And tell your boy, it was Minneapolis. You stupid asses.
@dddd You've successfully embarrassed your entire fanbase. Congrats on winning and good luck with the next two rounds, you do realize that you have two more rounds to go before you've done anything right?
How long have you been a hockey fan?
It is clear that you have not been for very long. To call a Red Wings fan "bandwagon" is like telling a butcher he doesn't know how to chop up a cow.
Maybe you should learn a bit about Michigan. In the top 5 of things people care about the Red Wings will almost always be there.
But you are right. The Sharks were a better team this year. I didn't want to say it on this board because people would get mad at me but Detroit did not match the Sharks overall.
But this is the first time where I will say that i honestly blame this series on the coaching of Mike Babcock. YES, I said it. This was bad coaching from the start. Hudler lacked any confidence at all and Franzen couldn't move... Modano and Draper looked like they were 25 not 40+. Yet what does Babs do, throw out the cripple and the pussy.
Next year is unfortunately going to be worse. I hate to say that the Red Wing's are near the end of their dynasty as long as Gary Bettman has his say. And I am sure he is cheering the Sharks right now.
@tplamon You are not representative of the Redwings faithfull. We have plenty of young talent and as long as the euro twins are kickin and nick Jr. is ready to take over... we are always a threat for the cup. This is the greatest dynasty in modern pro sports history, from the owner to the janitor.. While I agree with some coaching mistakes you mentioned... That will not happen again.. Babs is a smart mo fo and will learn from his mistakes... Long live the REDWINGS!!!!
@dddd Ya know. Had we won this game I would've been celebrating by talking with the people on this site. not being a fucking piece of shit and talking shit to a fanbase that has NOTHING to be proud of. 11 cups!!!!!!! FUCK YOU!!!!!!!
@dddd Red Wings fans don't have a bandwagon. We don't need one, unlike Sharks fans. I'm sure you'll fall off it once Vancouver treats you to your second consecutive sweep.
@dddd What a glorious life you live... This is the first place you come literally seconds after you should be celebrating your teams win with friends... Lol you've actually cheered me up... Knowing I'm still better off than you.... Teal is for douche bags... LGRW!!!!!!!!
@dddd wow, brave of you to show up after the horn sounded. enjoy getting raped by vancouver.
Third period, down a goal and carrying the play. Sound familiar???? Losing Bert and Clears sucks, but if there's a bright side, that means Helm and Abby get a field promotion, and I think they were our best players in the first. DEFIANCE!! LGRW!!!!
If icings were penalties, we'd have a lot of PPs and 5-on-3s... but I guess that's a good sign for the third?
We can do this, folks. It ain't over till it's over. :)
Hope Cleary and Bert are both okay. Cleary didn't look so good.
We can do this... this IS the Red Wings we're talking about. :)
