So, out of curiosity, why does everyone love to hate the Red Wings?

I personally have nothing against the Red Wings, although I like to support the underdog which over the past ten years has usually NOT been Detroit mainly for the reason that they're usually the top team in the NHL. :)

As a Canuck fan though the rivalry (and sometimes displeasure) is strongest with Colorado :)

That is true,I am starting to hate the Canucks an awful lot too.Damn that Todd Berutzzi

Now when I say hate,I don't mean the players,just more the team.I do like players like Pavel Datsyuk or Brendan Morrison,just not their teams  :)

Probably because they have a tendency to win a whole lot. So it's sort of like hating the Yankees.

I don't hate them, it's only a sport.  I just prefer Calgary, since it's my team.

Great game tonight if you are a Flames fan. 4-1 over San Jose.  It just seems like Calgary is the hungrier team right now.

I hate the red wings because they can buy victories.  They're like the yankees of hockey:  huge icty, big bucks, lots of fans and an expensive franchise.  They're like the Rangers, but they win.

I'm afraid the Avalanche are in that category too  :'(

So wait, I'm confused. You hate them because they try to build a team with a bunch of really good players? :P Isn't that kinda what you are SUPPOSED to do with sports? And since when does a franchise come from a small city?  ;)

You're comparing Detroit to New York City.  ::)

I don't think the Red Wingds buy victories, they do spend a fair bit of money but they have good coaching, the right team make-up and they also have heart........the only thing annoying about them is that they win a lot.  I think in baseball money plays more of a factor than in hockey though.

If this degenerates into a baseball discussion, I'm going to murder you all and burn your respective towns to cinders.  Except Calgary.  If you live there, I'll just torch your house and probably your neighbourhood.

Perhaps I will merely let your own incompetence and bad taste be your downfall.  Yes, that sounds like a much better plan, as it means I can continue to sit on my ass and do nothing.

The majority of hockey teams are losing money.  Meanwhile a small few can afford these teams full of superstars and with experienced coaches and huge stadiums and such.  That's whyTEH NHL NEEDS PROFIT SHARING!!!!!!!!11111

Yeah they definitely need to do something about keeping spending in check and levelling the playing field..........but I doubt that profit sharing will be implemented...

The NFL is the most profitable league in the wrold, and they have profit sharing.  I'm pretty certain the NBA does too.  Why can't hockey follow the common sense trend?  (Don't the NFL and NBA also have salariy caps too?  I know the NFL does)
