Geez, I never realized how much Wings hate there was here.....

And Nashville's style of play is the definition of intent-to-injure. They go after knees. They go after heads. They go after goalies (which is probably what you'll see in Game 3). As aWings fan, I've seen plenty of gritty, physical, CLEAN hockey in the playoffs the last three season (stupid ****ing Anaheim/Calgary/Edmonton). Nashville is not gritty. Nashville is not clean. I could throw down a litany of **** they pulled on the Wings this season alone (Tootoo knee-to-knee with Kronwall, Hordichuk bowling over Hasek at full speed without a Wing within 2 feet of him, etc.) and it's been going on for several seasons (Hartnell running Legace, Hartnell blowing out Fischer's knee, etc.). IF Barry Trotz stopped allowing (and IMO encouraging) the thuggery and cheap-shots, they'd be a team worthy of respect. Like Colorado once was, or the old Blues-Wings rivalries. Frankly, Maltby might be a gutless puke, but at least he's not running around trying to destroy careers.....
