Nice Schedule, Little Fella. Live Blog Another Example Of Gary’s JV Idiocy

Go back with me, won’t you?  Back, back, back to October when we so redolently pointed out the fact that the Wings were being scheduled nothing but weekend games in order to pad owners’ wallets early.  We mentioned it here and next thing you know the trolls came out and said mean things.

“Little Gary’s letting “us” play hockey again”
Man is that self-indulgent and whiny.

Is Bettman the scheduler?  Is a 5 game break in October really a huge blow?  I believe a comment section is there to keep a writer a bit honest.

Actually, the comment section is there to..well, I’m not sure but I just know that I dig it and always have. My response was brilliant and long-winded.

He’s the commissioner.  Therefore he’s the scheduler, disciplinarian, overseer of transactions, janitor. Every bit of it. It’s all his responsibility. It’s called leadership and it’s why he “earns” those 7million every year.

Two five-day breaks. Not just one.  Two, in the first three weeks of the season.  No big deal now but wait until Jan and Feb when we have all those games crammed together and the injuries start piling up.

Now, to present day.  Luckily our injury situation is better than it has been in years.  But tonite’s a prime example of why that could change quickly.  Last night in Hockeytown, tonite in Dallas where Gary wanted to build from the South up.  Detroit, Dallas all in 48 hours…when the Wings stewed and sat over the course of two five-day breaks in the first three weeks of the season.

Nice schedule, Gary. Nice league, toad.

Live Blog it, bitches and hope for health.

” trolls came out and said mean things”

Yeah that was me.  Glad you remember.  I have since noticed that every team has a real bad patch in their schedule.  Not an easy job to schedule 1200 games and still shaft the Wings.  Don’t think that I was all that mean about it though.

Regardless, this is a tough stretch.  Got a feeling we’ll actually see a good road start tonight.  They really had a chip on their shoulder last night, and it may carry over.

And I wasn’t there on that fateful October day just to badmouth you….I was just a little shocked by your tone.  Stunned really.  “Could anybody honestly think…...”, you know.  I’ve since become a big fan of your writing and started to see where y’all get your gripe from.

“the equivalent of a ‘white flag’?”

YES.  GOD.  I had no idea that dissenting opinions were going to make me such a target.
I guess you guys are used to people coming to be dicks, so fair enough.
I just want to enjoy the blog.
I can’t help calling a spade here and there.  I know some of you can handle a slight change from the party line, but apparently I had better not question the dogma.  I guess you lot don’t give each other any grief over some of the outrageous shit that gets said.  Fine.  I’m sorry.  I didn’t know that was the etiquette.
The next time someone cries foul that Jimmy isn’t the first star, I’ll keep quiet.

Both teams played last night, both teams traveled. The signs point to a slow, sloppy suckfest that the Wings win by 2 goals.

Evening 19.  Looks like we’ve attracted yet another secret admirer redolent with the foul stench of envy.  Enough of that though.  Let’s see the Wings kick some ass with the kind of methodical, choke-the-life-out-of-em road game that RWBill spoke of earlier.

LGRW!
