I NOW Consider Danny DeKeyser A Hall of Famer

Ha. That's just silly talk from me. Heck, the guy isn't even 14th in the league in defenseman scoring. 

But he'll never play another minute outside the NHL. Ever. He's that good, this soon.  Is he poised like Gonchar? Oh heck no. Who is? Who could be, or ever will be?  

Meanwhile...

...last game, in Detroit?  Three young men decided to climb out of their Chevy van, hail some hookers, unleash the puppies and climbed aboard a fire truck just before the horns blared and the children frolicked.  James Taylor hummed in their ears and the scapegoats started dealing:  Franzen, Filppula, Brunner.  Again.  If, if, if.  If Franzen could just...if Filppula would just...if Brunner can prove...well they did. For one night.  

We're uneasy riders today, my friends.  So, if you're a faithful follower of Brother John Birch I'd recommend you take a hard look at RWBill's NOLD updates...found in any of Okie's Game Day Threads (Bill...if you'd be so kind as to blast us one in the comments here, that would be downright nifty).  I'm not going to explain the scenarios.  If you want to see them, go see the Octopus Thrower...every possible contingency is covered here

Back to the IFs.  Those three, man. I tell ya.  Scoring from them breaks this thing wide open.  Another horrific dry spell and we're toast.  

It's a Live Blog, bitches. I'm serious. It is. Larry Murphy is obliterated somewhere.  The Stress Train is rocking.  It's soiled, stinky, disgusting and ours.

Hey, Master Chief!  Methinks nobody has found you yet, because this post is listed before Okie’s GDT.  I’ll go over there and tell everyone.

You’re so right.  If only…

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

Thank you ma’am. I started it way early today, set it aside and just got back to it.  Paul will tell you I have some issues when it comes to time stamps, etc.  I’m high maintenance.

LB up…..Chief! Your efficiency never fails to astound!

This is from the game day post that I’ll “Kerry” over here since ever’y damn one of ya missed the point.

Down goes Brown, for 2 games.

Interestingly, Kerry Fraser (he of the retired zebra) thought otherwise.

2 wins in the next 29 hours and at the very least Detroit will win the opportunity to get crushed by Chicago in the first round. 

Can’t argue that the dynamics of the last few games rock as there are two matchups between the teams fighting it out for the end:

Columbus vs Dallas tomorrow
Detroit vs Dallas sat

How about this for an interesting concept, why would any team rather be the 5th seed rather than the 6th seed?  Think about it, many 3rd seeds are amongst the weakest who make the playoffs due to the system of each division getting 1/2/3 spot.  The only time it would matter otherwise is if the two teams met each other later.

Last, the finals better not be Chicago vs. Pittsburgh.  Too cliche and predictible.

Ahoy, Sailor.  Been a long while since we’ve had the much-revered HMM, but this whole Proskauer Rose-sponsored half-ass season has been pretty much the clustefuch as advertised.  While everyone else outside of the Red Wings nation is happy with the results (like three people - Gary.Ass, Daly.Asskisser, and Stephen Walkdum), it’s been 45 games of hardcore drinking.

Just get the two points, Wings.  And per Bill’s Peloton, make it an ROW win.  No gimmick extra point.

Completely wasted. And even in that condition I could still write circles around you. That’s just an FYI.  I’m amazed, and oddly warmed, by the fact that I haven’t made a reference to your gift for prose until now.  A whole new world may have just opened up for me.
