I Love Deadlines

I like the sound they make as they go whooshing by.

- Douglas Adams

I think Mr. Adams had the right idea. The Trade Deadline, while exciting for us, is likely little more than an unwelcomed distraction to the players.

The Peloton of Suck is in full swing, as evidenced here:

Obviously, the Wings have to keep their heads in the game, no matter who gets traded, who's centering what line, or how many times Patty Eaves threatens to murder pets over sitting in the press box.

Tonight, an incredibly important two points are up for grabs... wait a minute, no they're not.

 

 

OUR TWO POINTS

 

 

The next few weeks are going to put Mr. Toad's ride to shame. The Stress Train's picking up steam, so strap yourselves in and join us for a Live Blog, Bitches.

Kind of important game standings wise. We’re only 3 points up on NJ so assuming a regulation game we’re either up by 5 or up by one at the end of the night.

Caps are off tonight; a W puts 2 points between us.
C-bus is at Dallas; Dallas on the bubble just like the Wings—Go Stars!
OTT has a gimme at EDM.
And Carolina should get eaten by the Sharks in SJ.

Basically, everyone the Wings are up against for the last spot is in action. Another season of must win games with a quarter of the season yet to play.

Yup, basically a must-win tonight, and must-win with half the roster out it feels like.

Good news:  The Wings have at least a game in hand on basically the entire East (PIT and BOS are even with 60 GP).

I’m in. Still waiting for Kenny to trade for a box of spare parts for our skaters.

I have never seen a Wings lineup with a guy named Joaquim as the first line center.

That can’t be good.

Fuch me, really?  That would have NEVER been the goal if the wings had done that.

How many goals have the wings had call “no goal” after a sequence just like that?  Intent to blow?

Has a goalie ever been traded between periods, and played for the new team in the same game?

You have a future as a Detroit Red Wing. They don’t show up on time either.
