BJs At The Joe

I don't know how many more times Columbus will visit Joe Louis Arena, but I've got to tell you something.  The Wings have always preferred the BJs at home.  BJs on the road, from what I hear, are risky, dangerous evolutions.

What's the Wings record when they welcome BJs in Detroit? I'm not sure. But I have to think it's positive.  I have to think that when the Wing veterans look back at their heralded careers in Hockeytown, they may think of Bettman's expansion teams and how they fared in Detroit.  I'll bet you that the memories of the BJs Little Gary gave us will last forever.

Sorry about that. 

The Wings have won two in a row. Today's Detroit News sports section featured this headline: "Red Wings feeling bullish about playoff chances."

A couple observations about that.

I immediately assumed the bearded, redolent, loquacious GregG Krupa must have written the article to follow...because few of us say "bullish."

I was wrong. The article is Teddy Kulfan's. 

Secondly, it's a lie.  I'm not positive what "bullish" means, because the term itself makes me want to vomit. It's so...redolent.  But, if it means "confident" then that's just a filthy lie. The Wings don't feel bullish/confident about their chances.  They feel bullishly confident that they'll get something like the 8 pick, which would have been good for a 17 last year, which we traded to Phoenix so that we wouldn't have to pay our star player who left because Ken Holland sucks. 

But...we've won two in a row and that's good shit.  That's streaking, sister.  That is a streak by any man's definition, despite giving up approximately 211 shots the last two games.  We're "bullish", eh?

Bull.

Shit.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  

LGRW and FKH.

No you’re not, you liar.

I was wrong. The article is Teddy Kulfan’s.

I hear Kulfan actually meant to type “quite confident mate, pip pip, cheerio”, but he actually typed “AFKSDH*#R*$RH$R” on his phone and it auto-corrected to “bullish”.


40-some points, and 16 to 12.

I just realized that Jonathan Ericsson is this generations Willie Huber ( those under 50 may need to google it) A big , slow, plodding, pylon of a D-man. No offensive upside and vey little defensive ability sick
