Nobody is going to be easy to beat at this stage.

the reason I want the Wings is because now that we have won a series, the next really "big" milestone in this franchise's progression is to beat THEM in the playoffs.

Little brother never gets his props until he finally knocks big brother on his butt.

not saying winning the next round against anyone wouldnt be fantastic, but until we knock the Wings off in the playoffs, we wont have something tangible to tell the arrogant Wing fans to shove up their hindparts

(and I know not all Wings fans are arrogant and deserve rhetorical enemas... but for those who do... I want some ammo)
Another reason I don't want to play the Wings:

It was REALLY nice not having to deal with an overwhelming number of opposing fans in our building, this go round. Part of why I think the Bridge (wow, I almost typed the GEC, haven't done that in a while) was so rocking was that it was a TRULY unified building. Not 14,000 Preds fans and 3000+ Red Wings or Chicago fans. I really can't stand that.
