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.

I’m gonna guess that I’m exempt from that

Posted by Hootinani on 04/24/13 at 07:01 PM ET

Nope. I’m not gonna do that again. I am here to have fun, but need to be half hammered to do that, apparently. My self medication was not quite when it needed to be when I blasted you. I started earlier tonight.

Not sure what this is worth, but LA has the second-worst road record, after San Jose.

That is, of course, if I am reading the standings correctly, which is questionable, seeing lunch consisted of a couple Patrons and Angry Orchards to wash down the, uh, chips.

I might be wrong, but NHL.com has the m10th in the West.

I should have said “of all playoff teams, LA has the second-worst record”

Oh, then you’re right.

And to piss on your beer, Detroit have the second-worst home record, better only than the Islanders.

(there’s so many wrong stuff in that sentence)

Love that stuff.  Tried some of it at a Frankenmuth beer expo, think it had ginger in it, and it was great.

Here’s hoping ViaSat will have the TSN coverage and not that retarded “Rivalry Night” horseshit.

This is basic no jink coverage to extend all night, to all of the 19. Shut. Whore. Mouth.

Well, if the game goes tits up, we can kick around the resident rainman with his charts and graphs. That’s redolent.

Buckle up.  A trip to the playoffs means a long, painful date with the NBC broadcast team.

I’m sure we’ll hear all about the perseverance of the LA Saints, being unjustly forced to play without Brown, the rock upon which The Church was built.

Nope.  ViaSat is a letdown.  They’re showing soccer instead.
