    Anyone think it'll be a sweep? I think it will go 5. Cindy Crawford is good. Osgood got a lot of luck last night. Wings could have easily lost that game. It sure is a game of inches.

    But it is the Wings year, no question about it. We are the Yankees of Hockey.

    I don't even like hockey until this time of year and ONLY if the Wings are in it. But it is nice to rule something. Do any of you have a sport that you feel your city dominates at? I already gave NY that for baseball.

    Which city thinks they rule at Football? I'd say New England or Dallas.

    How about Basketball? I'd say LA or Boston could make a case. Not Chicago because they only won in the Jordan era. I've seen Boston & LA win now and in the past. Because of Magic Johnson & Kobe/Shaq eras, I'd give it to LA.

    Yankees are the best because they buy the best players every year in the off season, and they have been struggling recently with the AL east getting even more competitive some how.

    I hate the Steelers, but they are the best team in the NFL.

    Go wings

    I'm a Pens fan but I have to give it to the red wings they are tough,
    baseball , Yankees is usually the pick but lately they haven't been doing so good

    now football, It has to be the Steelers
    you say New England they have only been good or dominate since Brady got his start
    and Dallas ha ha ha please they haven't won a playoff game in I think 10 years

    People used to say Detroit was the best for the same reason as the Yankees. The owner spared no expense. But then the salary cap came and I thought the Red Wings would no longer dominate, yet somehow they still do.

    I Steelers. I hadn't thought about them as being "America's Team". Remember Dallas said they were? I disagree. Yea, Steelers is a good choice.

    Yankees are still competitive every year/decade. They are held to a higher standard than every other team.

    Atlanta Braves could have taken over the baseball title when they had Glavin and Smoltz and it seemed like they were great every year for 10 years, but they didn't win enough. Making the playoffs every year doesn't mean that much to me unless you win a lot. This is why the Piston's aren't a dynasty. They only won in 2004. Had they won one more they would have gotten a lot more respect. Even though they made the finals or Eastern finals for what seemed like 10 years, you still don't put them in the same category as a LA or Boston or even Chicago Bulls. Maybe Chicago. We won in 89 and 90 and 2004. They won 6 in between. I'd have to give the edge to the Bulls.

    I'm not a huge hockey fan, simply because we don't have hockey here in Indy.

    But,,,,,,,,,when I think of the "Hockey Team Legends" these teams come to mind:


    Pittsburgh Penguins

    Boston Bruins

    Detroit Red Wings

    As a Bruins fan I'd say thank you. But as a long time hockey fan you're nukkin futts for not placing the Montreal Canadiens... at the top of this list.

    You know what's funny? I don't even know what team to associate Wayne Gretzke to because he was such a whore. :lol:

    Most greats like him you associate with a team.

    The Red Wings sucked the years Gretzke was great so I didn't watch a lot too. That might have something to do with me not knowing who he played for.
