Ah, the few, the dying, the mainstream media members. And it's things like this that make me remember why I turned to blogs for my Red Wings reading.
Take a look at this. Not only do we have to put up with their daily, repetative boring articles, but now we have to deal with their holier than thou predictions. And not one of these know-nothings believe the Wings will make it past even the conference finals. Yet, at least one of these idiots has the Sharks going to the finals. Here we go.
Mitch Albom: Wings in 6
How will Wings finish in the playoffs: Losing in conference semifinals.
Didn't even feel like figuring out who else was in the playoffs did ya Mitch?
Michael Rosenberg: Wings in 6
How will Wings finish in the playoffs: Losing to San Jose in conference finals.
Really? San Jose? He does realize this is the playoffs right?
Helene St. James: Wings in 7
How will Wings finish in the playoffs: Losing to Chicago in conference finals in seven games.
If Chicago makes to the conference finals, they are going to be beaten and bruised. There's no way they beat Detroit in a best of seven that far in. They are too top heavy.
Drew Sharp: Wings in 7
How will the Wings finish in the playoffs: Losing to Vancouver in conference finals in six.
Evil Drew Sharp makes the only prediction that I can't openly mock.
George Sipple: Preds in 6I hope the Wings are reading these things and getting pissed.
At least they have us getting out of the damn first round which is better than ESPN and NHL.com.
The quotation in place of the apostrophe in the Bert picture is KILLING me.
I think the Wings will win the 1st round. It all depends on how they go in the game tonight. If they want it, they'll have it. They could win this whole thing if they really want to. They have the talent, the speed and amazing players.
i bet mitch albom picked a team that didn't make it to the playoffs or an eastern conference team and his editor saved his bacon. idiots.
@Twig He probably picked the BJs.
Is it bad that the mere mention of his name makes me inordinately angry?
