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.

Glad to see he made it off the ice without a stretcher. Hope he ends up okay.

Aggressive hockey back in town. Remember that team promotion around 1977-78.
The refs needs to start calling majors on the dirty shite or the scrums will continue.

Sloppy play. Interference? Of course not. Keep grinding boys. These slobs played last night and will wear down. LGRW

You can talk all you want about it being a bad bounce off of Ericsson’s skate, but the passer was allowed to skate unmolested to the faceoff dot while any Red Wing player near him backed off.  You negate the bad bounce by not allowing the puck to get in to position to bounce badly.

Aggressive hockey back in town. Remember that team promotion around 1977-78.

I believe that was the slogan created by Mr. Ted Lindsey in his first year as GM….Bobby Kromm the head coach, and Bill Lochead scoring in OT as the wings defeated Atlanta Flames in their first and only playoffs until 1986…
