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.

12 in ‘12, baby Jesus willing.

I think we’ve got this whole PK thing wrong- the Wings are great at it.  The other team scores within 20-30 seconds and the penalty is over.

I’m sorry, but that sounds like pie in the sky thinking.  Eaves or no Eaves should be no difference.

Dallas determined to play a very physical game tonight.  Wings don’t seem interested in responding.

That’s twice now the Wings D have been hit from behind into the boards, Stuart in the 1st, Commodore in the 2nd and no call.

So….. is it now legal to crosscheck the Red Wings against the boards from behind?  Did I miss a memo?

and Pav strong enough to narrowly avoid a boarding. Jeebus, 3 times in about 3 minutes.

Is the DET PK more frightening than having Conks in net?  Damn he looks to be fighting the puck.

I’m here.  It’s kinda hard to resist having Cajun-spiced crawfish when the mood strikes.

I see a 2-2 tie with about 11:00 to go in the second.

This game is painfully boring, and the gooning is pathetic. I’m stuck with the Dallas feed, so it’s even more shit.
