    /wings fan since '93
    Hey same year. The mid 90s Wings were amazing. Cicarelli, Murphy, Coffey, the Red Army line (Fetisov, Konstantinov, Kozlov, Fedorov, Larionov)... 95 was the heartbreaker though. 24 goals in 4 games in the 2nd round and we got swept by NEW JERSEY?? I turned into a homer and started rooting exclusively for the Canucks once Stevie Y retired. He was really what that team was all about. Some of his influence remains, I maintain that this is why they are still killing everyone.
    I love it. Hossa before the game: "Oh, now Nicklas is out too? Pavol's still not back. So I have to score goals now? Okay, no problem Mike." The wings give real meaning to the phrase "scoring at will". I think Quenville should be fined ten times that amount just for the sheer audacity of claiming the "worst call in sports history" after his team has been the referees' darling for the entire postseason and benefited from the real worst call of the playoffs: the tossing of Kronwall in game 3. Jackass. It's one thing for the Hawks to get the calls (Scotty Bowman intimidates officials even from the press box apparently) but to bitch and moan when you don't like one or two of them is ridiculous.

    Oil hire Pat Quinn and Tom Renney for Head Coach/Asst. Coach.

    VERY good hires. Quinn will definitely get the young guys going, and Renney will bolster their defensive play.

    Just heard about this. An interesting move. Anyone know how old Quinn is? He can't have too many years of coaching left in him.

    Damn that crappy news. I remembering doing his "Zezel Drill" during college. It was basically a full ice suicide where you stop at every line. Brutal, but effective.

    Finals are set. Red Wings in 6, if they're healthy.

    I hope the Pens beat the Wings badly. I'm so sick of Detroit.

    Pens in 7. Because I'd love teh schadenfreude of Hossa losing the cup against his former team.

    This is what I've been hoping for all playoffs.
