Anyone listening to Mark Howard. The guy's a moron. Seriously.

Just said that Smith looks to be in the lineup over Tootoo (which may be possible, I guess), but then said Trotz could scratch a guy like SK since he hasn't had a great last couple of weeks.

I hope that's true, they really haven't performed well this season ... Tootoo since he made contact with the ref & sk under achieved this year at least compared to last year

I'd like to take this time to respond to some of the silly arguments a few of the seemingly more desperate Detroit fans have thrown out there to show why the Preds just don't stack up. I'm going to post it in here because... well... if I'm going to get completely biased responses I'd rather they come from our side.

"Just a few months ago the Wings were the best team in the league. They were healthy. When they took a slide they were injured. The team is healthy again."

Good teams take a hit when they are injured. Great teams keep playing. Detroit is good, not great.

"The first four regular season games in their series the Wings controlled the play. The Preds won one of those games, but Detroit still outplayed them."

So it's not ok for us to judge how Detroit will look in the first round by looking at the latest chunk of their season and thinking to ourselves, "they haven't looked so great. The Predators controlled the play the last two games, and Detroit has absolutely struggled on the road", BUT it's perfectly ok to look at games Detroit played against a very green Preds team still trying to find some chemistry and judge Nashville?

Contradiction.

"Howard has the edge on Rinne. Before he got injured he was the winningest goalie in the league. How many ASG votes did Rinne get, anyway?"

I'm not sure how many ASG votes Rinne got, because I couldn't care less. It's an All Star game for fans. That's like asking a high school student how he can be so uncool because he didn't win homecoming king. How many Hart/Vezina votes did Howard get last June? Oh right... none.

Rinne is the winningest goalie in the NHL this year, not "could have been".

I don't want to get over-confident or anything, but some of the arguments I have seen are just plain silly

It's going to be a LOOOOOONG day

Im really hoping Gaustad can use his superior size to shut down Dats/Zets. We'll see if he was worth the trade

Do you guys know if they will be giving away gold colored t-shirts at the game? It kills me when people don't make any effort to wear team colors and wear whatever. I esp. dislike when the colors they chose to wear are the colors of the opposing team.

Mark Howard is a complete clown. I cringe every time I hear him talk.

Apparently the team is set to have at least three gold outs where shirts are given away (placed on the seats again I would imagine)

He won't be used to "shut them down" anywhere but the pk. controlling them at ES will be the Fisher line, ast least at home. I think on the road Babcock will match them vs the Legwand line.

This is the one time when I'm glad to be way over here. Go to bed, get up and game time is 9am. Well, I'll be sitting in class but still watching the game.

I'm not sure if it's just me but none of the images in the first post work, anyone know why?

I'll be there to suck in all the glory. Go Preds!!!!!!

I love this. I've told my husband the the Wings can go **** themselves so many times that it's become my unofficial playoff slogan: "Playoffs 2012: Go **** Yourself".

Boom. Best comeback ever. I saw that in another thread and gave you a silent high five.

I expect Babcock to separate them (Z and Dats), especially on the road - they got plenty of skilled guys to put out with Dats to finish - like Franzen. Makes the matchup harder - kinda' like Trotz spreading out our skill among more balanced lines.

Great GDT. I'm legitimately stumped as to who will win this series as I think it could go either way...definitely one of the top series' to watch, though!

Best of luck to you guys, hope we see you in a later round.

I'd buy that T-shirt! "Playoffs 2012 : Wings Go *** Yourself".

I could go either with "Run this Town" or "Rivals".

For everyone's viewing pleasure.






Edit: If you can watch "Rivals" and not be totally pumped up afterwards, seek professional help immediately. Go PREDS!!!

I'll be honest, one of my favorite Predators playoff videos is when Országh scored that goal while diving head first into the pipes. Just wish I could find it.

I hold my breath during Mark Howard's post game interviews. He always asks the uncomfortable questions no matter the time or situation. When interviewing the 1st star of the game, it's time to celebrate, not ask why the player was benched two months ago. There is a time and place for honest difficult reporting. But he thinks it's anytime he has a microphone in his hand. Sorry for the rant guys.


Now, back on subject... Have the Wings ever been swept? I don't want to merely beat the Wings. I want to humiliate them - at least their fanbase.

I predicted an early exit for Salavat Ufa and a Radulov return. I'm feeling a little mojo, and a 4-1 series win for the Preds.
