Huron’s Rolling, Superior’s Singing and The Musty Old Hall Is Chock Full

I don't have much.  Detroit's made two huge offseason signings over the last two years.  Our GM, aggressive because he knows a title is within reach and always looking for ways to make his owner and his fan base happy, has refused to acknowledge parity as an option.  Refused.

Detroit's GM is a swashbuckler.  He gobbles opportunities. He's fearless. And he's being rewarded...

Hunter's hitting .415 and Fielder? .439.

Yes, that GM.

And Kyle Quincey sits.

Too morose? Blame Ken Holland.  I'll be watching the Tigers until game time.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  LGRW.  Just get in (how's that sound, Tick Tock? Is that the refrain you like to hear from Wing fans with the playoffs two weeks away?).

Yea Master Chief, you have hit the nail right on the head. It’s an awful sound that I’m not used to hearing. At least not for a couple of decades.

Just get in.

Yes, that GM.

It is absolutely amazing what can be done with a roster, when there is no salary cap,eh?
I remember those days, and those Cups. And yes, Holland has left some $$ unspent lately, I know.

I don’t really want to defend the organization, or the recent results, but that is like comparing axes to .50 caliber machine guns

Kenny is saving that cap money to please the stockholders. They keep selling out so what incentive is there to spend it? Corporate line. (sarcasm) .

Yeah, just get in.  I guess. 

Tigers need some reliable relief pitching, just like the Wings need some reliable, well, everything.

So much for watching my first NWSL game.  The live feed - that I paid for - keeps going “offline.”  raspberry

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

Jeff, did you see the little tyke that threw the ball back on the field?  The next shot was the poor little one and his brother crying. Hope he got it back.

I take it as a good sign that they are 3 minutes into the broadcast , and haven’t mentioned Crosby yet.

If they can’t win this one, they don’t deserve to make the playoffs. I’m really starting to think about that lottery pick. I know, I know, I should shut my whore mouth.

What a surprise that a Fil/Franzen/Cleary line would look like crap right off the bat.

Was that fill that gave the Puck away to Nashville for the rush already?

Yeah, keep talking about Nashville with all their injuries and rookies.  Wings have been healthy all year and have all vets playing.  oh oh

I just finished watching the Tigers game myself.  Already got my tickets to see them up in Seattle this week.  But right now, it’s hockey time.

Go Tigers!
