SI knows as much about hockey as ESPN....which ain't much. They spend their time covering the NBA and MLB.
This year is going to be very different and true Wings/hockey fans admit that. This is going to be good, nothing like last year. We very well might lose, but it will be close and hard fought if we do. No spotting 2 off the bat in blow outs.
Biggest difference is we actually have a Coach that can think on his feet and play to our abilities rather than sit back, trap and wait for the opposition to do something first, then try to react to it. Last year, Malkin was injured as was Crosby. Both are healthy and tearing it up. Hell, our role players have put up more points in the playoffs than DET's stars. Fedotenko is outproducing Hossa and Datsyuk so far.
Game on and a different game it will be this year.
