Don't see a problem when they have something like 90+ consecutive home sell-outs.
It was one of a few possibilities management was considering. Of all the cities in the U.S. I think Detroit was hit the hardest when the economy went bad and the Wings were scoping a possible move to the suburbs of Detroit. It was probably one rumor of many but if I can find the article again I'll link you guys to it.

Also the attendance numbers are rarely accurate. I noticed that when the Hawks were in the dumps years back and they would claim their attendance for the night was around 10k, which is half their capacity, and the U.C. was not half full. Sometimes you'll have season ticket holders who don't show up, or corporate business will have tickets bought but nobody went to the games, things like that allow teams to inflate attendance despite some empty seats. All teams do it. For Detroit I've always figured when I've seen the empty seats during a game it was because of how hard it has been financially for people living there.

Regardless though I was talking about Minnesota. When I went to hockey camps as a kid, of all the states I've been to doing that, Minnesota always struck me as more hockey crazy than anywhere else in the U.S. It's not a knock on Michigan just something I remember about Minnesota.

Who cares, WINGS WIN!!! Tied this baby up and heading back to Anaheim. We deserved to win tonight, but also didn't. Lots of defensive breakdowns, but we could've also scored more than we did. I think it was a stupid idea to bring lashoff up when Ian white has had much more playoff experience. Dekeyser was much better than Lashoff and he hasn't filled Dekeyser's role very well.

And Kyle Palmieri got Kronwalled!!!

That was a FANTASTIC hit by Kronwall! Brings memories of Konstantinov(?, butchered that name).

You got it spelled correctly. I remember that guy cross checked Jocelyn Lemieux in the face and his bottom lip was hanging off and when Roenick put him through the glass at the old stadium.

Strange the stuff we remember. Konstantinov was as tough as a bare knuckle boxer.

oh yea, Vlad. I've seen some highlights of his huge hits. It'd be ironic if Kronner was Russian haha.
I really hope we play well. I'd rather lose playing good hockey instead of that junk in games 1 and 3. Need to build off last night.

Cleary is hurting which could be a tough blow and it's do or die with the series 3-2. I've been watching the Wings with huge interest lately which is why I'm so chatty about them, I hope you fellas don't mind.

I want them to crush the Ducks.

The building should be a rockin, especially on a Friday night!!

LOL, what does the East think of the Wings coming back home to the Eastern Conference next year?
Now it will have 5 of the Original 6 in the East again.
Personally can't wait. To be able to see Boston, Montreal, Toronto, NYR on a regular basis, YES!

I dont mind but I don't like the new division setup within the conferences.

Game 7 Baby!!!! Cleary played well after getting boned on that hit. Zetterberg stepped up and Howie played pretty well last night. Of course Pavel pulls out that nasty backhand from the slot and buries it. Can't wait for tomorrow. Hopefully we can get a lead and hold it instead of giving it up and having to win in OT.

Leafs bring disappointment to a new level... the Caps underachieve and are knocked out in the first round. Glad to see everything is back on track

I predict a lack lustre series between NY and Boston with the Bruins coming out on top (they'll eventually lose to the Pens in the conference finals).
Blackhawks are the team everyone should be gunning for though and I put them in the finals against the Pens... which should be great hockey

I have no idea what's gonna happen with Boston and the Rangers, because, I've watched the Bruins all year and they just don't show up every game.
As for the pens....I'm not sure they can get through ottawa, they had a hard enough time with the isle.

Im pretty excited for this matchup with the Blackhawks. Should be a great series regardless of how teams finished the season. Im convinced if the Wings played Chicago and we were 15th in the conference and they were 1st, it'd be a tight game. Can't wait.

The pens look like they're going to lean on Vokun to get the job done in net. IMO all they need is some decent goaltending because they can produce the offense.. Fleury wasn't near decent and this move makes sense to me.
I agree you don't know what you're going to get from the Bruins every game but they did show their experience in the last 10 minutes of game 7. I think they'll build off that and play well against the Rangers... the Rangers do have alot of weapons. I should probably retract my previous statement that this will be a boring series, it's just that the Caps/Rangers series was very tight and defensive until game 7. We'll see

Rough game for the Wings. Hopefully we will get it lined out for Saturday
