I'm seriously so sick of the negativity on this blog from some of the fans. "We have no chance against Nashville." Blah. Blah. Blah. What kind of Red Wings fans are you? Seriously? Not the kind that deserve to be cheering for the team. Okay, so we did not play well at the end of the season, but come on. We had half a minor league team playing for us, and we just got all of our guys back. It takes a few games to get the mojo and flow going again. We're back and we're healthy now. We NEVER lose in the first round and we CERTAINLY WON'T lose to Nashville. I'm a realistic fan too. And I've been watching the RED WINGS my WHOLE life and I gurantee we will win this series. If you're one of those fans on here saying we're going to lose to Nashville and we have no chance why don't you not watch. Why waste your time? In fact why don't you go be a fair weather fan for some other team. I'm talking to YOU SNACKYX, AND THE POSTER OF THIS THREAD! Like are you guys kidding me? What kind of fans are you? Some of the posters on this thread fit the generalizations given about MgoBloggers.
OT: Red Wings - Hawks Open Thread
I agree with you about the excessive negativity, but to say the Wings "NEVER lose in the first round" is just wrong.
During this twenty-year playoff streak they've been sent home early six times (four when they've won the division, twice as the 1st seed, twice as the 2nd) by the: Blues in '91 (1st year of the streak); Leafs in '93; Sharks in '94; Kings in '01; Ducks in '03; and Oilers in '06.
It wouldn't be that surprising if the Predators won, though I'm not going to count the Wings out before they've actually lost four games.
We avoided a West Coast trip, which if I am not mistaken the players would hate to travel there first round. Also, Nashville has wan only one playoff series ever to my knowledge.. To be upset with the Wings play is one thing, but to give up before the series between two equal teams (2 pts separate the teams) is dumb. With Helm in the lineup at some point, we'll be ready. Quit crying and get ready for the playoffs! Go Wings!!!
