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.

The Wings’ PK was 8 for 8 until they gave up that one tonight.  Is that so awful?

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

Its a damn good thing for DET that the DAL shooters suffer William Tell disease.

EGAD too many uncontested shots from the high slot.

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

I know.  I can’t believe how badly I wish something else was on…  Kinda weird.

Put one of the kids on a line with Pavs.  Mursak would be a puck shooting fool.  Miller too.

Just think what they could accomplish if they could just manage to actually get some shots off.  Asking a lot, I know.

Vomit.

You think it’s simply that they don’t TRAVEL well, something about the Hotels/Red Bird/ the age thing? They just seems worn out compared to yesterday, surely if that’s the case maybe you swap a line for some kids? Or trade for established youth or early-mid age (if that can be described as a thing) at the deadline?
