    All I know is the Red Wings are for real and they are getting better and better every game. The first game against Chicago was a let down from their first round West coast travel, but since that game they haven’t missed a beat. I don’t know how far they’re going, I don’t think they know, but they are a contender and are not afraid to take on all comers! I look forward to see where this goes!!! If they win the cup it would make a great movie! So much for a rebuilding season, Detroit doesn’t understand the meaning of rebuilding, just winning.
