from Spector at Fox Sports,
...Don’t however assume the Red Wings glory days are behind them and they’re going to fade away into mediocrity.
As we’ve seen over the past two decades, Red Wings management has been capable of building and maintaining a contender via drafting well, making shrewd trades and free agent signings.
They’ve gone through a few transitions seasons in the past, only to emerge each time with Cup contending rosters.
from Brian of Genuinely Sarcastic,
We wanted to believe. All of us, to a man/woman. Believe me, even I did. The way the Red Wings dispatched the Sharks in Game 4, it ignited a little bit of hope in all of us. A 7-1 win, Johan Franzen coming alive, that little flicker of hope that exists in all of us, no matter what the circumstance, it burned inside of us for the past two days. We wanted to believe that miracles were possible….
In the end though, the Wings just didn’t want it badly enough. They weren’t as hungry, weren’t as fast, weren’t as good. I was as disgusted as all of you were with some of the calls that happened during the series, but in the end, sometimes you just have to overcome.
read on and thanks to a KK member for the pointer…
