This is true. I've never really known Doan to be a dirty player, but I haven't really been following Phoenix.

We'll get a better idea on Thursday, but I think the Kings could upset the Blues if they end the season in 8th.

Reseeding is a joke though, and the NHL should definitely do away with it.

Between LA, San Jose, Phoenix, Dallas, Colorado and Calgary.... LA is the team I'd least want to face. I'd hate for them to get the 7th seed (looks like Canucks will finish 2nd). They could win the division, though. The Pacific is so ridiculously tight.

It was a great success. Scuderi, Voynov and Mitchell can collectively replace what Jack Johnson brought to this team at defenseman, while Carter dramatically improves the #2 line.

Just saw the PHX-DAL bullshit from last night. Doan is such a piece of shit. I hope he gets exactly 8 games just to send a message. His shit has always flown under the radar and I'm glad it's finally being looked at. That said the last thing we need to face tomorrow is a self-destructive team with Raffi Torres in the lineup. He and Downie may face off in a goon duel of epic proportion.

So Rangers vs Wings tonight, battle of the most negative fans, and I will have to say we are going to get royally screwed tonight with Conklin in net until he lets in 3 goals within 2 minutes, and than Jordan Pierce who is our 4th string goalie will play and let in about 8 or so.

I feel a St. Louis 10 to whatever type of game happening from last year. I really shouldn't bother watching this train wreck tonight, but I know I'll catch some of it and become increasingly angry at it.

I've gotta admit it's been crazy seeing how hard the Wings have fallen since losing Lidstrom. I know Datsyuk's injury played just as large of a role, but even with him back in things just haven't been the same. Just makes me wonder what happens to you guys after the Lidstrom era. Kyle Quincey era? :/

Unfortunately Quincey hasn't even looked that good defensively, it also isn't just Lidstrom's injury, right around when he was injured we suffered a ton of other injuries to our top 6 and depth guys. Still is no excuse that the team doesn't seem to even try over these last 10 games though. Not very confident right now with this team or their playoff chances if we don't some how manage to lose the rest of the games and fall to 9th which with how they have played, could happen but very doubtful.

Doan should get 10 games.

Quincey was so inconsistent with his defensive game with us. Some nights he was our best defenseman even when the rest of our D were having good nights, other nights he was worse than Hunwick. He had the offensive touch to keep him in the lineup from the beginning of the season, but I wasn't too torn up to see him go to be honest. Not crazy about Downie but we can unload him next year if need be. I'll bet Quincey turns out to be a solid player and I'll miss him by the next few years though.

Anyway, maybe missing the playoffs is better for you guys? I don't know, I haven't paid much attention to how you guys have been drafting in recent years but I imagine with the consistent success you haven't had too many high draft picks. I know when we got shut out of much of the 2003 draft it really fucked us over for awhile. We got Jones out of it but that's basically it.

Like I said, highly unlikely, but not out of the question considering if we continue to lose like we are and the teams below us start winning, it isn't out of the question. Once again though it 99.9% won't happen and we'll be in, but there is still that slight chance with our play as of late. But I do expect them to have a small 3 game winning streak here at the end possibly to finally secure a spot.

We also have a lot of good young forwards coming up, not really that many defensemen though unfortunately.

My biggest fear is Holland analyzing the team after the 1st-round exit and saying, "Well, that was clearly due to injuries. Let's bring back the same team next year!"

Cause that home winning streak is pretty much the reason we aren't with San Jose, LA, Colorado, etc... fighting for a playoff spot with the lackluster road record we have had.

Also on another note we did almost trade Datsyuk for Gomez a while back, but decided against it, THANK GOD, that would have been a disaster.

I think the Wings have a shot against NYR tonight. They have a great system for beating the trap, plus Conklin can move the puck pretty well. I think they match up well against NYR even though they are limping along.
