Blown lead and a shootout loss. WTF? It's like fucking Groundhog Day around here.

Howard must GO!

Someone needs to drive to Rafalski's house and punch him in the mouth for retiring 5 years too soon.

Babcock's man-crush on Abdelkader is getting a bit old as well.

Any word on Eaves?

I thought the game was good but the ending sucked ..... again.

To win a shootout.... you need shooters that can score.

You can't win games when your offense must score 4 goals a game. For once it wasn't that bad yesterday, but I'm with skeletonizer, Howard needs some time in Grand Rapids to figure his game out. Has he won a game since hunting season started?

Come on, the wings have been in the playoffs and competitive for the last 20 years and brought us how many cups?

The tigers have been in the playoffs and the ALCS for the last few years and have also been competitve.

The pistons did win another championship just a few years back and were in the eastern conference finals how many times?

Sure, the tigers can't get over the hump, the pistons aren't all that good over the last few years and the lions have always sucked. But you don't win the championship every year.

Look around, in the last 20-30 years we've won a fair amount of championships......

Detroit ranks 6th for having the most championships since 1960.
2 world series (1984 most recent)
3 nba championships (2004 most recent)
4 stanley cups (2008)

Considering my previous comment about the playoffs I don't think we're doing too bad. Espescially considering our football team isn't even helping out.

Also not bad considering cities like LA and New York have multiple teams in each sport, new york has 7 teams in the 4 major sports.....

I'm not a basketball fan, the wings have been trending downward for the last few years, the lions have always sucked, and the tigers sh*t the bed in the post season. Overall you're correct, but recently sports locally have got me down.

I am not a basketball fan either, but you said Detroit Sports.

The wings have been trending downward, no doubt, but they've been on a 20 year run......

The lions are the lions, nothing to discuss there

The tigers did "shit the bed" but they've made the ALCS and World Series a number of times in the last 10 years, that doesn't exactly qualify as sucking.

Every time a player in blue and white had the puck in the neutral zone it was as if they were on a break away or had the most brilliant scoring opportunity. Each goal was celebrated as if they had just won the Cup. This was beyond enthusiasm. These people are fucking nut jobs.

The event was awesome, the game was ok, and picking up a point was nice. It was a great experience and the NHL did an amazing job. (I hope U of M and the City of AA took notes). I just hope the league doesn't bastardize such an awesome event by diluting it with six out door games.

Go Wings!

The Leafs are one of my favorite teams. Obviously yesterday they were my least favorite.

The experience of that game is unforgettable and was simply amazing to be a part of. We had a few Leafs fans in our section. One was obnoxious and pretty drunk the rest were pretty well behaved which surprised me because I couldn't imagine being the face of the NHL and not winning a Stanley Cup since 1967. Some jack ass stole our seat cushions when we stepped away for a few minutes and the Maple Leafs fan that had been sitting right behind us was kind enough to go grab two more for us, I thought that was nice of him! On the way out of the stadium I was walking next to a gentleman head to toe in Leafs gear, he was telling me how impressed he was with the fans here in Detroit. He told me that if this was in Toronto and the Leafs had lost the fans would be rioting and fighting Wings fans. He was happy to see how well behaved we were, after all it is just a game!

The Wings really haven't necessarily been trending downward the last few years. They play in a game 7 for the cup in the 2008-2009 season. Since they've made the playoffs every year. They've won the division once and made it to the conference semifinals twice. It just happens Chicago and St. Louis built excellent teams over the last 3-4 season. I like the direction they are heading and seem to be able to reload with young talent every year. One of the few professional sports organizations able to retain a solid minor league system while maintaining success.
