You like the new name? Well thanks, next time I get the urge to down vote you I wont.
Wow, you really should stick to the Wells board. This sports stuff is apparently way over your head...do I really have to explain the difference between a 4 and 5 seed and home ice advantage
and who said everything is "hunky dorey"?? Time for your ADD meds...

Look dipshit, the Wings are 5-10 in the 15 games since the 23 game home winning streak stopped.
I know as much about hockey as yourself. You aren't any smarter than anyone who posts here.
How do you know about ADD meds? You one of the jumpy kids that took them?
Anyone with a clue knows home ice advantage. I also know the Wings aren't in the postition with the presumed #1 goalie and a hot backup waiting on the bench. It doesn't look like '07-'08 where Osgood took over from Hasek and won the Cup.
The Canucks, Predators, and Stars are the only Western Conference teams above .500 on the road.
Even the first place Blues are 18-21 on the road (18-16-5 if you want to separate OT losses).
Your "I know you are, but what am I" routine is childish
Whats the matter Hitch22? Not so hopeful. After all they won 6-0 after the streak was ended.
You reminded me of that one.
You get all butt hurt when I remind you they are 5-10 since the streak ended
Whats the matter? Are you just another Red Wings frontrunner?
That was an udder embarrassment last night.
Between going to the Caps* game and watching them going down 3-0 on 9 shots in the time it takes an MgoBlogger to pre in his pants at the thought of banging a chick, and absolutely shitting the bed last night I've really lost the desire to even watch this team.
Fucking pathetic, the Jackets are total garbage.
*Yes I realize 3/4's of the team was missing for that one.

Marriage is like flying with kids, if the flight had 500 connections, never ended, Ted Striker were your pilot and you ate the fish.
Babcock called last night's game 'unacceptable.'
No shit scowl-ey
Getting down 2 goals late in the third period is unacceptable...Fire Babcock
I do wish they could fire the part of his coaching that runs the PP.
So, GRR... what is your prediction for the Wings in the playoffs?
I think they are an underdog against Nashville. Losing home ice hurt. 6 or 7 game series. Toss up.
Nashville got Radulov back from the KHL in late March and he has 3 goals/4 assists in 9 games at RW.
They had to lift their own susupension to put him back on the roster.
Nashville roster has one of my favorite NHL names: Jordin Tootoo
RedWings have got to hope Howard stays healthy and gets in a zone. Abdelkader, Miller and Erricson need to come up with some magic for the boys to see the 2nd round.
not a wholelot of bumps after the tepeid finish after the streak was stopped. How far back was this burried?
I'm no math genius... but the post before mine says 6 days ago
I'm not crazy about the Wings defense ever since Quincy was brought on board. That combined with some injuries has had the defense playing way out of character. Lines have been screwed up, players were playing on the wrong side, plus the fact that McDonald is not Jimmy Howard. Quincy takes some really dumb penalties to top it off !
Even after saying all that... I still think this series goes 7 games.
Wings in 7
PS - Tootoo is a hack !!
This sounds about right.
I won't be screaming for Babcock to get the axe if the Wings lose in the first round. Although if the Wings fail to show up entirely I'm sure a nice long serious discussion with the Pizza Pizza King and Holland would be in order. The Wings have two games to get healthy and address chemistry issues before they come home to the Joe for game 3. A reversal of past seasons, I think the Wings will get better the longer the series goes. Game one and two are huge for Preds, I think that if Detroit steals one of those games the Wings will wrap up the series in 6. If not game 7 is going to be awesome!
The obvious reason that this thread was "burried"....Tiger baseball began...is obvious. Other than the Wings going really deep in the playoffs, in which case Babcock will be summarily fired, they are a non story in the local sports world these days.
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
i am a bit perturbed that he'd rather play a 50 percent cleary tonight rather than a 100 percent connor
So is ankle biter a "cool" term now?

For those wondering, Rocket Play has spilled his bizarre obsession over to now thinking that I am GRR Spartan as well.
That is funny
My candidates are Ken Hitchcock, Dave Tippett, or Kevin Dineen.
I hope you're right! Go Wings
Babcocks not going anywhere, he got them into the playoffs with all the injuries, my main focus right now is finding out why 93-26-51 have all disappeared.
Ok lets talk top 6 forwards
1. Pavel - he's awesome but I think he needs more rehab on that knee. He doesn't usually skate as slow as he has been and he's running out of gas sooner.
2. Hank a he's been the Wings best player every playoff game
3. Johan -is a goal scorer who has been light on the goals. He needs to start taking the puck to the net and jumping on rebounds unfortunately he's fallen in love with his wrister.
4. Val - I thought at the beginning of the year he was having his best year ever now he's a ghost especially when he's needed to cover for a pinching D! Needs to step his game up in the playoffs or he gone next year.
5. Jiri - is standing around a lot which is nothing new but if tWings resign him I think it's time to groom him to be the next Homer or Ciccarelli and jus have him piss off goalies on the PP. He is most likely gone?
6. Danny Cleary is trying, he's working hard and had a solid chance at a goal last night and was stoned. He is a Red Wing for at least another year ($3million) and I hope he can recapture his 2008 glory but he looks broken. needs major rehab or retire.
I think the real question is: Does Mike Illitch pull the plug on Ken Holland sooner or later?
Obviously I know that is not happening, but at what point does yearly complacency at trade deadlines/UFA period become an issue to the rest of the franchise? Babcock has explicitly stated that he does not have certain types of players he would like to have, but nothing is ever done to appease him.
never in a million years. Kenny H has proven himself over the years
