Baptism By Fire

There's nothing much to be said about the worst team in the league. I did read something about the Wings being "uniquely bad" whatever that means. Tonight's lineup will include the newest member of the Wings. Eric Comrie, a much needed goaltender and very nice person from what I've read about him. I wish him the very best and success tonight in his first full game with his new team, and, in the future if it all works out. With the current lineup, I'm thinking it will be a baptism by fire....

And that 26-5 advantage in shots somehow resulted in 3 quick goals.

Welcome to the Detroit Red Wings, Eric Comrie.  #shellshock

LoL…I was at a few of those games. They would drive the Jeep Wrangler around the ice between periods. Oh man..has it really come to that again.??  sick

Sumbitch.  To paraphrase Mike Babcock, giving up 5 goals is tough, that means you need to score 6 to win, and scoring 6 is hard.  Except he said it about 3 goals.

Okay. Yeah. Cmon.

Let’s put all 19 of our craniums together and see if we can come up to a possible, potential, long shot solution to retaining a fan base, saving the crushing of souls of young players, of providing some semblance of hope to all.

Jeebus….

I understand the method to Stevie’s madness, but at some point the league may begin to wonder how competitive a team he’s putting out on the ice… Tanking is frowned upon and usually doesn’t result in the #1 pick…

Zadina needs to go back to GR. Playing in this atmosphere is poisoning his game.

Ill be blunt…

Stevie, Captain, whatever…... get off your happy, tanned, Florida ass, and do something. If this is acceptable to you, then hold a press conference tomorrow morning and donate your salary to a favorite charity. If you are gonna be a spectator than get paid like one….

I call shenanigans!!

TSN enjoys televising Blashill’s facial contortions, too. I say this after all of the 5-1 drubbings, but he’s gotta be gone, right?
