Back To Winslow

Aloha.  Thanks to Paul for filling in with the LBs and welcome to Red Menace who's assumed the title of GDT Czar.

Quite the coincidence the other night.  2 minutes and change into the game and one of scumbag Patty's henchmen drills Kronwall from behind.  Right off the hop, eh Twitchy? Incidental, I'm sure.  The only thing missing was Lemieux's 22 and the side boards.  

Aside from Kronwall's "minor concussion", all is looking up. Helm is skating in GR. Howard's back but the big boy did well in his absence.  Your boy Alfredsson is on fire, so is your long-time boy Pavel. Health is decent. Uncle Mike is happy. He's got plenty to tinker with and we have little to complain about...so far.

The East is...winnable.  

8 games in and I'm, naturally, highly optimistic.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

We need Helm, Tatar, and Nyquist NOW. Not 10 games from now, NOW. Get rid of the spare parts in any way you can, Holland. The Wings can be better than this this year.

I don’t know about Helm necessarily but…. the look of Babcock on the bench after the 4-2 goal gave all indications he agrees with you, and is done with this sh*t too.

Shitty 40 minutes from the wings, but that Mike Smith empty netter was pretty. It just sucks it was against us.

I think I figured out why this loss frustrates me so much.

We haven’t yet seen the Wings dominate anybody. They’ve looked good at times, yeah, but there hasn’t been one game yet where they seemed in control the whole time.

And I’m sure that goes back to the lineup. Too many spare parts forming lines that aren’t good enough.

Not sure how an injured goalie would be able to be that accurate with a shot.

Let’s not fool ourselves guys.

No changes are coming.  We’ve been saying it for months, and by now we know better.

Smith is gonna’ sit again assuming Kronwall comes back.  But beyond that… Holland just doesn’t have the stomach/balls/whatever for the job deciding guys’ fates.  He’s waited, and waited… and waited some more hoping for guys to decide it FOR him.  And it hasn’t happened because the team DESPERATELY needs some other direction and help.

Nyquist isn’t coming up.  Tatar is not getting into that lineup.  There is no other defensive help on the horizon.  Samuelsson and Cleary are not going to stop getting icetime.  Trades are not coming.

What you see right now… this is the team.

And until Ken Holland proves ANY of this wrong, it *is* the reality.  So if any of ya’ll want out and not to deal with this… now is the time.  Don’t say you weren’t warned.

They should have been playing all along.  Smith just plain sucks. Sammy and Cleary,  too old, too slow. We have talent wasting away in GR. I’d rather see rookies make a blunder than these old Fuchs dragging down our good players.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Don’t hurt yourself jumping off the wagon… the Wings are 6-3 and it’s nine games in.  If I’m not mistaken there’s some 72 games left.  Relax just a little bit… you’ll live longer.

This.This.This.This again. Keep reading this, over and over, until you realize the importance of this message. Please quit picking the goddamn team apart every time we go down the ice and don’t score a goal.

Some people have real problems, like me, having to be in Denver for a week, and wondering if I will see tonight’s game in the airport bar, or not.
