Well I guess it's better to be down 3-1 after the way the last 20 games of the season went, instead of being 3-1 coming into the playoffs on a major hot streak.

CLEARY..........STUPID.

FRANZEN.............INVISIBLE

FILPULA................INVISIBLE.

Time to shake up this team. They just need a different mix here. This run is over and they can't be the Pistons and sit on this until the team is too old. Time to make some serious moves here.

Cleary hands it, gift wrapped and all, right to the Nashville player in front of his own net. Season predictably ending in a thud.

Well this season is over.

Good to know. Call me crazy, but I intend to watch a few more hours on Friday. If that's the end, so be it. But if I were a Nashville fan I wouldn't be counting my chickens.

Don't me mad, you just happen to really suck at predictions. :grin:

Half right. I'm not mad. And yes, I DO suck at predictions. Not all years. But this year big time. Anyways, the first round is still IN PROGRESS. But yes, heading in a different direction on many fronts than I expected.

They spent everything they had trying to get that record this year. Ever since Vancouver ended that record, the Wings have been one of the worst teams in the NHL. They need a shake up here. It's gotten stale.

I still don't understand the Bertuzzi extension. Yes, he's been one of the Wings' better players this series. But going forward ... WHY?!

Time to really blow things up if the season ends Friday or in this series. Honestly after this, even with the Winter Classic next year, can't be surprised now if Nick retires. No reason to come back to this mess unless they make some big moves.

All Nashville wants to do is sit back and wait for the Wings to make a mistake and every time in this series the Wings do something wrong, the Preds bury them. Can't blame refs, bad bounces, or any of that nonsense. Wings can't score and no one is helping Hank or Pavel do a thing.

I'm thinking it may have something to do with most of their top players being injured for significant amounts of time. Don't think Datsyuk or Lidstrom are 100% and it wouldn't surprise me if Franzen is also. I'm not a big Cleary or Holmstrom fan, but who unless they make waves in the free agent market, who all do we have to replace them?

Better get it right back on this powerplay. Can't let the Preds sit back in their shell. Have to answer

I remember suggesting they could make a trade for Ryan Smyth to help the Power Play and everyone telling me I was crazy.

Bingo...That's one reason I have such a strong desire for Zach Parise. This team needs a top line and another second or third line forward, otherwise these types of outcomes are going to keep happening.

Well, last year taught me never to give up on this team. It's tough, but this series is a few lucky bounces away from being tied up or even the Wings leading. At least we're not Pittsburgh haha

Yep, opportunistic teams make their own bounces and luck. Nashville is pouncing when they get a chance. When does playoff hunger trump playoff experience? Probably right here in this series. Not that the Wings aren't trying. I believe they are trying and they care. They just have developed bad habits they can no longer break.
