I don't think they changed Les at all actually

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
I hate Nashville.
Next year could be a totally different team. Possibly no Lidstrom or Homer, definitely no Stuart...that should open up quite a bit of cap space. I wonder if we'll take a run at Suter or someone like him
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?
StraightDave owes me a steak dinner
Before this series I was thinking we would take a run at Weber, but that's doesn't look likely at all now...not that it was before but still
Yeah, given everything that went down I doubt he'll be getting a call. Plus he'll be a RFA next year too
Suter will surely be high on Holland's shopping list.
Him and Parise I bet will be getting a call from Mr. Holland
Parise, Alexander Semin, and maybe even Nash too. The problem with Suter is that, after beating the Wings, why would he want to go to the Wings? Nashville is clearly on the up and Detroit clearly on the down - he has a much better chance at a Cup with Nashville at this point.
Life and Loss with Michigan Basketball
Hopefully, if we don't pull of the comeback, Nashville gets shellacked in the next round. And given that Nashville will be spending the majority of their time trying to court Weber, and he might be willing to come here.
But I doubt we'll have a shot with Nash. Columbus is still hoping they can build a team around him, so to part with him it'll take an arm and a leg
I'm not saying we need to go back to the drawing board, but this team needs a new direction with a big name guy. The last month or 2 of this season was the absolute worst Wings hockey I've seen in a long time, which is why I'm not at all surprised by this series with Nashville. There is just something missing.
There will be some huge names out there this summer and I'm praying the Red Wings will be making one of the bigger moves.
I really don't think the wings are finished. Nashville has been outplayed for most of the series. Get it back to the D. Win and see what happens in game 7.
At least the Tigers' big guns came through tonight.
With a couple exceptions -- the ridiculous lack of discipline on the second goal jumps out -- this is nothing more than terrible luck. If we keep playing like this, we have a great shot of winning three in a row. We have been as dominant as any team thus far.
Oh and PS, just once I want to hear a sportscaster acknowledge the role of luck. "Well, team x played like garbage, but sometimes you hit on 20 and get an ace."
"I just hope Tressel doesn't fire me"
Mickey Redmond said near the end of the game:
I've seen a lot of bad breaks go against the Red Wings over 30 years, but, boy, these four games might take the pot. There's been a ton of them.
Michigan Resurgent? Michigan Resurgent!
The beatings will continue until the uniforms improve!
It just goes to show that you can win a series with only luck and goaltending. Look at the stat lines -- unreal. Nashville fans probably think their team is really good at hockey.
Is Babcock safe if they lose this series?
Some of this shit isn't his fault. Or anyone's fault. Just terrible luck that you can't be blamed for.
I would say so. If they lose (I know it's probably gonna happen, but we came back from down 3 last year, it's not over yet), it's only 3 early exits. The Wings aren't a "lose a series, fire a coach" type of team, and I don't think management will overreact to that
Holland better at least make some moves. If they stick with what they have now I see an early exit next year too.
I mean yes he's safe, I meant no he's not going to be fired
doesnt make sense.
"This is Michigan for God sakes" -Brady Hoke
It's not easy listening to their fan base every day right now. 95% of them have no hockey knowledge (thus ignore the Wings dominated statlines) and just root against Detroit for spite.
Cannot wait to watch the Lions drop 40 on the Titans in September.
Born and raised in northern MI, stuck in TN temporarily. Cannot wait to get back home.
This series is like watching Lil Bro beat us the last few years. Very heartbreaking.
There's an explanation for it, but good luck communicating it to an irrational fan.
Small consolation, but Tigers win and expand their lead over the Sox to 2.5 games
Meh it's still early. They will have a 10 game lead in a couple weeks.
Off topic? It says in the thread, Tigers. Nice job asshole.

I just got home from the game. Im fucking sick as hell always seeing a goalie steal a series from us. Every year the Wings lose a series and all you hear is "The other team was lucky" or "There is nothing you can do about running into a hot goal tender". I say to hell with that. Can anyone remember a series the Wings have stolen? Ever? Why the hell can't we ever just go out and get a top 5 goalie that isn't on the down side of his damn career? And don't tell me J Howard is a top goalie. He is not.
If an OSU fan divorces his wife are they still brother and sister?
"Why the hell can't we ever just go out and get a top 5 goalie that isn't on the down side of his damn career?"
We did for the 2001-2002, and it worked out pretty well.
I agree this does happen to us a lot though. It's just because we've had such stellar players for so long. Nobody is going to beat us without a hot goalie.
"That's right. It's an off-tackle play. It's coming right over you. And there's not a thing you can do about it."
