Blackhawks win in OT....they were the better team.

Still blows to piss away a 3-1 lead in the series.

That is what is going to happen when guys like Abdelkader and Cleary are playing on the top 2 lines. You can't have guys like that who can't handle the puck and can't hit an open net on your scoring lines. Hopefully Darren Helm can come back and Cleary can be sent packing over the summer - that would definitely help the situation.

I knew this would happen. Dammit.

I have a feeling I will rue this day. Thanks for nothing, Detroit.

Suck it all you ****ty ****ing wings fans. And good luck in the "Eastern" conference. Next year will be like this year... scratching and clawing to make the playoffs. You havent figured it out yet with your nose so high in the air but the post Lidstrom era wont be so kind to you.

The below graph is entitled: The Lidstrom Effect


Loving seeing ~$20M in cap tied up next year for garbage (for the $$) like Quincey, Kronwall, Howard, Samuelson, Bertuzzi.... Keep thinking Holland is god....

I really hate the scheduling of the Conference finals, back to back games on Saturday and Sunday. All because of the Stones concert in Chicago.

Anyway I feel pretty confident about the series, Blackhawks have trouble with the forecheck, Kings have bigger bodies than the Red Wings and hit twice as hard. 'Hawks have some firepower, but the Kings can neutralize it with their defense.

As long as they have Babcock they have a chance every year. They have some talent on that team. Howard and Kronwall are pretty good btw. I hate the Wings but just bein real.

He hasn't done anything in the playoffs so far. If he does do something now, props to him.

I am not saying that they arent good. I am looking at their contracts and how they handcuff the team. The cap is dropping quite a bit next year. They are paying Kronwall like a #1/2 D man and he isnt (4.75M/yr). He can hit like a mother but that is it. And Howard isnt bad but the 5.3M long term deal they gave him when he really isnt that proven hurts. That is top 5 goalie money and he isnt top 5.

The only truly elite talent on that roster is Datsyuk.

It was a great game, one that had to go to OT just to make it even more epic even if the late goal should have counted and if anything Chicago should have been on the power play for the rest of the regulation time.

Zetterberg is every bit as good imo.

It no longer amazes me how the Ref Wings always get the calls.
I just expect it now.

LA is the best built team to beat either of the East teams.

There's so much wrong with this post, IMO. Kronwall has shown he's a #1/2 D-man this year and got plenty of buzz as a Norris candidate on a team that lost HUGE amounts of man-games to injury. A cap hit of 4.75M for him is perfect. He shows no signs of slowing down and has become the defensive captain, bringing along guys like Ericsson and Kindl, who both improved immensely due in part to Kronwall.

As for Howard, I don't get your take. Holland can't create a market that isn't there, but can only operate within the market that exists. The Howard deal is perfectly reasonable and adds stability to the team since he's young and has shown he can sustain quality play, including playoffs. Plus, if a young stud (Mrazek?) comes along and is better 2 years from now, it won't be too hard to move Howard with only about 15M left on that deal, if he remains a top 10 goalie. I would've preferred him at 5M but 5.3 isn't out of the question.

The key decisions will be with some of the dead wood in Detroit. Guys like Bertuzzi, Drew Miller, Eaves, Filppula, Cola, Cleary, Samuelsson, and Ian White. Really, they may just cut bait on ALL of these guys (maybe keep miller and see if they can sign fil at a reasonable salary or let him walk). The key signing has to be Brunner, IMO. Gotta get him back in Detroit, considering it's only his rookie season and he should get better. My shocker prediction is that Franzen gets bought out and/or Helm retires.

They will sign their RFA's, get Brunner signed, cut some dead wood, and continue building from within. DeKeyser will be back, which brings some young talent back to the D, so I think Holland has put us in pretty good position.
