Good Times

Any time you play against a Team you have a history with, it reminds you of all the good times that were had by one and all. Although those days are long past, there's still an added excitement whenever the Wings face off against the Avs.

The rivalry was one of the very best in Hockey with a certain amount of respect coming from both sides. Hard to believe it was twenty plus years ago when it first started. Where has all the time gone?

This is one of the many times the 19 really miss our Chief. He always had the best Live Blog for the "Dive" bar none. Good times.

But here we are, making do. So let's make the most of it.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Finding A Winning Formula

Thirteen plus Forty looks like it could be part of finding a winning formula. It's a small sample size, but man, it sure looked right.

 Blash says he's staying with the same line up for tonight, so, maybe he sees something there. There are 19 of us that agree.  If it's working, then keep er' going!

Devolution

Devolution is a process of decline. Something that has gone from great to good, good to bad.

When devolution occurs, things have gone in a negative direction. 

We're not here for a vocabulary lesson. We're here to watch the Detroit Red Wings win games. There have been many times this Season that the Wings should have gained ground on the competition but they did not take advantage.

Sadly, the Wings have gone from hanging in there, to currently battling it out for a wild card spot. 

The Wings, with the exception of a few players, have devolved into mediocrity, and it's not acceptable to the many Fans that pay the price to watch the Wings. The Coaching staff is on the hook as well.

Something's gotta give. How do you motivate millionaires?

It’s A Must Win

The Wings have to win this one. As they say, "it's a must win."

There are 19 of us that always hold oot a bit of hope, but, hope doesn't win games.

Goals win games.

More Shoot. More goals. More points.

Back To Work

Watching some bits and pieces of the skills competition, and even the ASG, only because Dylan Larkin participated was entertaining. The John Scott "Cinderfella" angle was fun too as it ended well for him. Nice story.

Now it's time to get back to work. The Atlantic is as tight as ever, and, although the 19 have had a week or so to relax our collective butts, it's clenching time again. This is the long haul for the Wings, cause it only gets tougher from here on in.

More shoot. More goals. More points.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

It’s Broke, Fix It

Most everyone among the 19 has their opinion aboot our inept PP and lack of scoring. There is no sense in droning on and on.

IT'S BROKE! FIX IT!

The LB Must Go On

Neither snow nor rain nor heat......... Well there is no mail delivery in my zip code and aboot 19 others today. There are a few games cancelled tonight as well.  It's a whopper of a snow storm(Nor'easter) here in PA, but being from Michigan one knows aboot blizzards. It's called Winter.

Anyway, here's to all the 19 and their families staying safe and warm wherever we call home now, and what could be more warming than to take another two points tonight?

Getting It Right

There are many Wings Fans that are not in a very good mood right aboot now. There may be a valid reason or two to be a bit dismayed, but, for the most part the Wings are pretty much where they should be. A new Coach, new players, and current players that are still getting used to a new system means that getting it right is not going to happen overnight, or, in forty or so games.

The up side is that it's a long season so that leaves room for improvement, which will happen. It's true that patience  is in short supply among some Fans, but there are at least 19 of us that have been witness to much worse. Here's to "getting it right" with the 19 taking the wait and see approach.

Yes, this is cheerleading the 19 way.
