Note: I’m unsure of the Hurricanes lines… just pulled that from a fantasy site.

Thanks, RedM.  Tipping a mugful-a Kona coffee to the GDT.  Slainte, ya redheaded bastard.

April 11, 1936 - Led by captain Doug Young, DET captures its first Stanley Cup title, defeating TOR 3-1 in a 4-game series.

Cheers to the ‘36 Cup Champs. 

A meaningless game but those two points are still ours for the taking.  Earn ‘em, Wings.

Now it’s safe to say.  I’m looking forward to the nice, shiny, GDT-Playoff Edition.

Whatever it took, we made the Playoffs.

Thanks Red.


Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

They are all golfers, might as well pull the Hurricane lines from foursomes at The Masters. The ones that play real early, and are finished their round before noon.

This game isn’t meaningless; it will go a long way toward determining whether the Wings earn the #1 or #2 wild card seed.

Thanks, Red!

Amazing that there are Red Wings on the current roster who were not yet born the last time the Wings were not in the playoffs.

So proud we should all be.

Just. Win.

It’s meaningless to me personally because I don’t care who the Wings draw in the first round.  I didn’t want the DuhUcks last year in the first round; I wanted the Cawks.  And look what the Wings did to that fanbase in Anaheim.  Let’s just play and see what happens.

Will Babs give Dats some rest Sunday?  May depend if there’s a chance to get 7th by winning, which we would need to do by a clean point because the other 2 hold the ROW tiebreaker.

I think BOS would be a tougher team in the playoffs, they are a harder team in the playoffs than the Pens in recent years, and don’t mind exchanging nasty physical punishment.
