I think it's psychologically important for the Detroit area to simply have the Wings in the playoffs. It's a springtime institution. The air is getting warm, the sun is out, you think of getting some ice cream and the Wings are in action at the Joe.
Now with me having said that, watch the Wings get swept in the 1st round whilst it's snowing in Detroit.
The one team I dont want in the first round, Vancouver, we currently slated for. Not that they scare me, I just dont think we've really played good against them all year, regardless of the scoreboard and wins...
not sure i have ever heard DRW fans described as too modest , but thanks.
and good luck in the playoffs.
i have much sympathy for SJ fans. DRW were the chokers of the NHL until '97. also did not win the cup for 42 years, and only made the playoffs twice from '67-'83.
Well, in this thread anyway.
I know there are a lot of us Sharks fans who look to the Wings of the early to mid-90s for solace, but I just don't think this team has it in them to make that kind of turnaround. And I sure as hell don't want the Wings in the first round.
