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?).

wait.  what do I do with myself for the last minute of the game when it’s already decided?

no pucker?!?!

no clench?!?!

no holding my breath ?!?!?

what is this evil?

This all feels familiar.  Like deja vu, or something that once happened long ago, maybe even many times.  In any case, I kinda like it.

Much thanks to Monkey the backdoor pirate from a cosmic dust technotard.
Finally a victory formation empty netter. Screw the refs who once again tried to make a difference.

9 shutouts. Like I said no prediturd will have more points than teeth this season.

Have a great week 19.

I’ve never seen a group of Wings who appeared so content to lose. “We could be a little better here and there” as we slide into 9th place with the same issues we’ve had for the past 3 years.

I bet they already have their names in a few golf tourney’s.

As a group who’s never had to be desperate before or lost enough to appreciate winning, I think we’ll need a couple seasons like the late 80’s early 90’s to relearn how to put the skate to throat.

Posted by HockeytownOverhaul on 04/14/13 at 05:39 PM ET

Talk about learning not to pay attention to posts.  Obviously you are not watching any games.

San Jose are a facsimile of the Wings without Bowman. Chicago are a carbon copy of the Wings. With Bowman. What will the Wings,with Babcock be, when all is said and done?

Yes, that GM.

There isn’t a salary cap in MLB.  When there wasn’t a salary cap in the NHL, Holland spent quite a bit on aggressive FA moves.

I am beginning to suspect the Chief is trapped in some kind of bizarre Doctor Who vortex where Friends is the top show on TV, NBC is the nation’s #1 network, and that Tom Brady guy… he seems like he’s an ok NFL QB, but nothing special.

Either that or he drives a dope silver DMC-12.

Come back, Chief!  You all did Herm to Hockeytown, I know we can pull off ‘IwoCPO to 2013’. 

Plutonium, a stretch of road, and we’re golden.

17:01 DET J. Franzen (9) Backhand - ASST: V. Filppula (8) AND D. Cleary (4)

Fil lost it in the corner to a Nashville player who passed it to Franzen.  I think they must have decided the Nashville player never controlled the puck.
