At least it's something simple and not too goofy, although I'll probably cringe when I hear the song play. The way some posters are saying the Oilers are gonna trash us it's actually kind of fitting.

Eh,it's not that bad...could have been alot worse,and as Spitfire said,kind of fitting at least for the first round. Think the guys want to win it for Fisch?

In a word, yes...we want to win it for Fisch. What better present to give him?

Playoff slogans, in general, are lame. Plain and simple.

But...this is probably the best one they've ever had. Short and to the point.

My "Hunt for Red Octopus" idea was better

When they reached the playoffs, Babcock burned an effigy of Patrick Roy. As a result, his men were fired up for the Cup run.

Another gem from the Wings PR department. Good thng the team is so good it sells itself or they might be in trouble.

At least this one doesn't lend itself to a Hillbilly Ho-down sung by Mick and Ken.

That was absolutely horrendous.

It's gotta be tough for the Wings' marketing department to have to come up with a new playoff slogan each year...but that's a good problem to have. The Blues marketing department is getting a year off after having to do that for 30 years or so.

I think they should have used this as a playoff ad campaign -

Be ... excited! Be - be, excited!

Stevie's got juice! Stevie's got juice! Whoooaaaa, Stevie!

I've got it...Instead of "Bring it!" they should use "Wing it!"

Better, but not by much

I thought I'd get at least one hit with that. It's from Requiem for a Dream.
