Mule, My Friend…It’s Time To Dream Like A Young Man

Okie...this morning.

The Flames defense is horrible, 3.38 GA/G, 0.68 5-5 F/A;  both marks second worst in the league.

Win or go home.

I had a boss a long time ago that had a nifty ditty he'd pull out only when the time was exactly right.  Most times he was sarcastic, demanding, unrelenting.  We all saw that and most of us dug it.  There were occasions, though, when that temper would flare and the highlight reel would start spinning.  One day, I witnessed him look up from his desk, slowly.  He paused for a minute and let that gaze burn into this kid standing in front of him.  And then he said, "You're lying to me.  That's irritating.  You want to play fuch-fuch with me?

Good. Let's play fuch-fuch."

And then the destruction began.  And it was a thing to behold.

It's time for the Wings to play a little fuch-fuch.  Teams like Calgary cannot be led along like the 1am sloth, soiled and barely coherent, waiting for a Blues fan to wheel her home...whore style.

Teams like Calgary must be efficiently and mercilessly dispatched of.  

Johan Franzen claims he's "pissed."  We've seen pissed before, Mule. We saw it against this very team.

 

 

Horrific.  Pierre was beside himself. Bobby Lang was so mad he forgot to check his hair in the glass.  Nick Lidstrom's pulse accelerated to 21 beats per minute. And the Mule?

He was pissed.  

Remember? (scroll to 2:14 mark)

 

 

That's pissed.  

You want to prove your pissed, Johan?  Show us that move again. Move your big ass across the slot and fire away. Holy Hell...when's the last time we saw that move?  

Get mad, big boy.  

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  6 to 16 and then on to 12.  Just. Get. In.

Seriously though what has Dats needed his entire career:

Two wingers who can score. Check Nyquist, Tatar
Two wingers who have the skill level to play with him. Check Nyquist, Tatar
Two wingers who either have the youth or brawn to play the same physical game he does: Check Nyquist, Tatar

Just seems like a no-brainier. And they certainly fit there better than Abby or Cleary did. Sigh

What is wrong with Abdelkader’s stick? It can’t seem to receive a pass tonight.

Nike’s been the best player on the ice for the Wings along with Mr. Andersson.

Andersson, Nyquist and Brunner are playing their asses off. Zetterberg and Datsyuk are still pretty good even when they’re not playing very well. The rest of these forwards are are really sandbagging.

I don’t see how they have room for 51 with the new young guns working out so well, and with Tatar and crew waiting in the wings, over-ripening in Grand Rapids.

Franzen has been pretty crap since his knee got destroyed. Bert has to retire. Helm will hopefully make a full recovery and come back strong next year.

It’d be nice if they sunk some of the cap space to try to steal Vanek from Buffalo and work out something to get a real #1 defenseman.
