Detroit has played in a weak conference and it will show when we punk them out for Lord Stanley's cup.
Boy I hope you're right! the wings are fast, but we're more physical. We can beat Osgood if we can get shots on him. The Wings D has done a great job limiting shots against him which is part of his success. The Wings top line is impressive--Gonch and Orpik are going to have their hands full, but I certainly think we have a good shot, especially with how focused we've been during the playoffs. Our guys have one goal, and the Prince of Wales trophy isn't it.
