A Short Break

Watching the Wings this season has been nothing short of exhausting, so, I'm sure the team as well as the 19 are looking forward to a few days off. No guessing who's in the lineup. No lame excuses for playing badly. Oh, and all the losing. This short break will a nice breather for us all.

The Wings could take a lesson form the Canes on the design for the third Jersey. Eh?

Hi Katie, I am looking forward to the short break. Losing, like a communicable disease, eventually will overtake a team and weigh them down. The Wings are near the halfway point of the season with no great strides towards respectability on the horizon. But still we persist. L.G.R.W.

Evening 19.

Just showing up to say I won’t be showing up. They play better that way.

mrfluffy you are the least of the reasons why the Wings continue to not play well. Come for the game, stay for the comaraderie.

Hello reprobates.
trying to balance two games and 2 chats on 3 devices and one old brain.

Let’s hope the elder Svetch has a great game tonight.

Thanks for the chat, Kate.  wouldn’t mind a bit of a break from the red wings, as fascinating as they are to watch.

The losing has become routine. It’s all the young core has known. The new coach, who ever it will be has his work cut oot for him….

Yes Kate the young players have had their brains and spirit beaten out of them, not just losing, but badly, and a lot.

What’s the cumulative score this week, 3 - 12?

Hola 19. Well they let the youngsters play the last game scratching the vets. That worked oot well eh? I believed it exposed how bad the coaching is at teaching any semblance of structure. Rant over.
Glad to be here with the rest of you suffering souls. 
Stick around Fluff. Misery loves company.

I may have to mute Dick Vitale on the Michigan basketball, and find another device to stream the Michigan basketball audio stream.

Hi all!

Whatever else happens, the Svechnikov brothers
meeting in an NHL game, finally, and their parents
watching back home is something positive all will have
forever.

Started the Athletic trial subscription and the (one year staggered)
interviews with each brother being asked about the other is one of the most
wholesome things you can read.

They could’ve used Dicky V in Texas a few weeks ago. All that hot air would of been put to good use for once.

Way to go Z. That’ll do his confidence good. I’ve seen him with his head down in disgust too much this season.
