Dinged Dong

I've said it before, way before many considered it appropriate to do so.

The Red Wings are a better team with that a strong dong in net, a dong belonging to James Tiberius Howard. A potent, dependable dong, a dong with staying power and strength and confidence.

But that dong can't stay strong. That's a problem modern medicine can't seem to fix.

So, that's a problem for the whole family.  

I don't like Petr Mrazek. I never have. Not personally, because I don't know him. I don't like his style.

But his style may pay dividends tonite as we face off against hockey's best team, managed by the guy who should be managing our team, if not for the ego of one Ken Holland. 

Maybe Mrazek's swagger does the trick tonite. Maybe he steals one, because a theft, another theft, is what we need.  We are not on par with this team, and that's ok. That's the cycle of life Holland has swirled us into.

One game, Petey. 

Then the dong comes back, ready to bring us all continued joy. 

Back to the vague mention I made of Steve Yzerman. I'm going to repeat a refrain.

Chris Ilitch needs to do something.  He needs, no matter what happens in June (and I do believe that month will feature a Tampa Cup), to offer the Yzerman family two things.

Money. Tens of millions of it  Power. All of it.

Bring the Captain home, Chris.

It's a Live Blog, bitches. LGRW. FKHASAP and HSYthissummer.

Last thing you want is Larkin throwing haymakers into the other guys helmet. (Love the kids intensity but I don’t want him fighting)

With all the shit the refs are letting TB get away with, it’s no surprise to me that the team is taking exception to it.

I’m not advocating violence, but if anyone in red would happen to slash kucherov across the wrist…I would be ok with that….

Larkin didn’t deserve the boarding back in the first, and Stamkos didn’t really deserve the roughing so much. Yet… Larkin got a boarding… so I see this as an even-up call.

Even it up, boys.
