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.

Posted by tuxedoTshirt on 10/21/11 at 04:54 PM ET


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.

“Welcome to the jungle, Tuxedo.”
Now here’s a fan I can understand.
Not sure that I have been very secretive about enjoying your discussions.  I may have just been too biting with my criticism, too quick to attack Okie…...how many apologies are needed, exactly?
To be clear, I am an open admirer.

So sorry you’re sick.  I just got over something like that.  No fun.

Posted by MsRedWinger from Michigan, but now in Florida on 01/17/12 at 08:39 PM ET

Appreciate it.

As someone above said, I’d love a huge night from Pavel to get him up at the top of the scoring lead.

The fans in Dallas must be encouraged to bang on the glass, to give the appearance of actual fans in the stands

Do they breed glass knocking dick-holes in the south? Seems every game in a sunbelt market someone siting at the rink microphone just has to bang away all game.

After that Homer slapshot before the goal on the way into the zone I was about to say when’s the last time he scored like that, and I think it was against Phoenix in the playoffs last year if I’m not mistaken. So rare and awesome when it happens.
