Red Wings Are Garbage!!

Once upon a time, the red wings blew a 2-0 lead in the Cup Finals.  Then the Pens took game 7 in the wings own house and the Dead Wings cried cause Sydney didn't shake their pathetic fallen hands.  Boo Hoo!!  The End (of the Red Wings).

P.S.  I love the fact that Detroit is off to a horrible start of the year!!  Also, haha to the tigers.  Have fun watching the playoffs from home!!!

Why do they have such stupid names

Once upon a time, a few days after playoffs, several Stanley Cup champions were in a terrible car accident when their driver drove drunk and with a suspended license. The trainer and one of the league's best up-and-coming defensemen were critically injured. Another of the best defensemen in the world was more slightly injured, though he still had some problems with his leg that affected him much later. <br />
<br />
Vladimir Konstantinov, Vladdie, Vlad the Impaler, whatever you wish to call him, had been one of the best defensemen in the world. Rather small, but feared by his opponents and a hard checker. Sneaked out of the Soviet Union by faking cancer. Whatever his achievements, his career was over. He was in a coma, did not respond to his visiting teammates. The four other members of the so-called Russian Five tried all they could to get him to respond. Even when he woke up, he wasn't as he had been. And so the next season was devoted to him and to trainer Mnatasakanov, with the word "Believe" worn on the sweaters in both English and Russian. And somehow, the Wings managed to win the Cup again. And when they did, Vladdie was part of the team in spirit if not in body. His wheelchair was brought out onto the ice, the Cup in his lap. And Vladdie was smiling. Nobody knows how much he understood of that night. But everyone loved it.<br />

The Wings have their ups and their downs. Once, they were mockingly called the Dead Things even by their fans, in an era with some good pla<x>yers and some bad. Gerard Gallant, best known for taking bad penalties at worse times, and so on. They are known, they are still sometimes beloved, but the Wings came out of that two-decade slump to become a dynasty once again in by the mid '90s. And in the making, Detroit hockey fans learned that Russians really were human. That sometimes a memory can be as important as the facts. That we can still be ardent fans of the Russian Five even if none of them still play on the Wings, and three of them are retired, one tragically. That we still respect pla<x>yers who can win on class and talent, not youth and fame. That we respect pla<x>yers who have had their spirits and hearts tested by fire, not in the superstar days of their youth.<br />

The Wings are not garbage, nor shall they ever be. They are in a slump. They will rise again. If not this season, then another season. They are Original Six. They are the second-most winning team of all time in the NHL, second only to another illustrious franchise, the Montreal Canadiens. This is not the end.

O nce upon a time, the red wings blew a 2-0 lead in the Cup Finals. Then the Pens took game 7 in the wings own house and the Dead Wings cried cause Sydney didn't shake their pathetic fallen hands. Boo Hoo!! The End (of the Red Wings).
