In Red Wings Land
BEEF VOTE: RICHARD SHERMAN VS. MICHAEL CRABTREE OR RED WINGS VS. AVALANCHE - Secret Base
Matchup Prediction: The best hope that Richard Sherman and Michael Crabtree have of advancing to the championship is if all NFL fans come out and support their sport. Otherwise, I think our hockey beefers are going to cruise. They’ve made quick work of the competition with each round, and it’ll be the four different sport they face in four outings. Maybe that has helped keep them from getting complacent?
When I voted, it was 69-31% in favor of the Wings/Avs beef.
Around the NHL
That leaves the Flyers six points back with 17 games to go and with Boston having two games in hand.
This is really all you need, but five reasons is fine. Remember when the Red Wings were in a position where it was arguable whether or not they should be sellers because the playoffs were still TECHNICALLY a possibility?
Now remember that kind of pain for a team that DIDN’T win four cups in your lifetime.
