Yes, the end was quite unpleasant for the Wings and the Pistons. Most of us wanted Miami and/or Carolina (NHL) to lose, and some felt they were undeserving of their respective championships. However, didn't the Wings and Pistons give us 7-8 great months of play? Didn't they dominate their leagues for most of the year? Didn't we honestly believe that we might actually see both of our teams win it all? Quite often the "best" team does not win. It's often the team that happened to get hot, lucky, and stay healthy for the final two months. Maybe this is just a losers perspective. I guess from a historical perspective the season was a wash, but we sure had a lot of fun along the way.
