The Wings are showing they are in a class all to themselves with no real bonified superstar but rather a true hardworking blue collar mix of workers. They have a very robust and balanced attack from all angles of the team which is what excites me the most with no one aspect in a lull they are truly running on all cylinders.
The exemplify that Hockey is a team sport and if a team is going to succeed its going to be the sum of their parts not an individuals prowess.
Their ability to complete checks and check tight contrasts on the opposite end to the lack of that with Columbus. These "pros" that have simply skated away from a checks I don't know if they really understand what it takes.
Hitchcock in my opinion has done nothing for conditioning with this team because they really look out of shape and quite simply outclassed.
Hitch is done after this play-offs as he has done nothing to motivate this team and there's too much pressure on Nash with no support.
The Wings are on fire and no matter who they get next they will be healthy stealthy and above all on fire. Look for the Wings to close the deal next game while their next suitor to struggle in their first round matchup.
I hope the Ducks push through because it'll be great to watch the matchup.
Look for their usual suspects to pick it up a notch next game I see Datsyuk and Filippula having a break out game.
When the Wings have a team's Jugular they cut to it and it's over.
