Almost Home, But Two In Carolina First…Thanks Gary

And when I say "home", I mean done. 

That feels like home, sounds like home, beckons me like home. 

Meanwhile, you guys talked goaltending today. 

On TMR, you conducted yourselves well.  

And when I say "well", I mean maturely. When I say "maturely", I mean your conversation was civil, and your points were well-reasoned.

I'll say it again: Jimmy Howard is the best Red Wing goalie. His injury history, not his age, is the only reason I'd consider keeping mercurial Mrazek over him.  Howard is, simply, better.

A season-low 36 comments on last night's LB. I know. I understand. Believe me when I tell you I'm not being passive aggressive. It's kind of, you know, not my gender.

Oh stop, ladies. Just kidding (mostly).

The LB has dropped and dropped then plummeted. I attribute it to two things:

(1) The Wings, Ken Holland specifically, have failed and we don't stomach it well

(2) I've been a whining little bitch about it.

Optimism will return. It will. In July or something.

Meanwhile, it's a Live Blog bitches.

LGRW and FKH ASAP.

As long as it’s not Douche Kane or Cindy raising a cup in June, I’ll be ok for July.

July what year, Master Chief?
July 2017 will be far from a month of optimism.

Well, 25 years was a great run. No other modern sports franchise can say as much. We were spoiled. But I’m also looking at this in a positive. It is the “DO-OVER” we have been sorely lacking and wanting for a long time to come. Was it due to all the playoff runs? Yes and no. Gotta throw in some lousy choices and mismanagement too, so we can swallow it down. It’s like trying to chug a Ice Cold Hamm’s brew, its still horse piss. But you drink it anyway as that was all that was available.

This team is in a position come July 1st to make course changes that can right the ship. But I’m weary of the Captain and 1st Mate.

I’m scared Bwana, I’m scared!

I think 20 of those were me.  Felt like I was talking to myself.  Only way to have an intelligent conversation though, right?  wink

The only way I would have more sure the Wings weren’t scoring on that break away is if it was Sheahan instead of Helm.

I absolutely hate that home opener stat for the Canes.  It’s complete randomness and has no actual bearing on making the playoffs

I think Ken might be having a rough night - Not sure if anyone else caught it but he said on Helm’s breakaway miss that “he almost made it one nothing”.

Have the Wings gotten to their 100th too many men on the ice penalty for the year yet?

Lazy change causes offside. These guys are just so lackadaisical when making player changes. No excuses.
