One Dozen Game Days

12 more games left in Mr. Holland's Opus. 

The team you built, Kenny, is on the verge of some Harkness-like shit.

The team you built, Kenny, designed to waste the final years of Hank Zetterberg's career, can hit the links in 12 working days. 

12 more games until we can attempt to view this organ-I-zation with optimism, look forward to a lukeward draft class, anticipate some fervent tire kicking and another 1 July that is actually different than years past in that signing a big name UFA would be absolutely stupid, even by Holland standards, if the Wings are going to ice another team like this one.

It disgusts me how negative I've become regarding our Red Wings. Truly. I've lost my sense of humor and I just want this garbage season over with.

12 more games and this season of utter discontent (minus that six-gamer, boy) is done. Let the full-on rebuild begin in earnest.

Let it begin, despite the fact that I can't envision it. I can't envision it because Holland hasn't prepared for a rebuild. He's done nothing but stave, stave, stave.  He allowed this team to deteriorate little by little, season by season.  That's no way to rebuild from a shit heap.

Mediocrity, Kenny. It's a wicked drug and your addiction to it has placed us where we are today.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  LGRW and FKH ASAP.

It’s been a tough year, but I had to smile today as a car heading north on I-75 passed me with the vanity plate “mrazek1”  smile

On a brighter note, the kid played his first HS baseball game today. Out of 170 kids at tryouts he landed a spot on the freshman teams (yeah, they have two).

Getting a lot of Kenny Albert lately, certainly could be worse.  Expect numerous Xavier “Wallette” sightings.

I don’t know.  If the stick caught him under the chin it could have knocked his teeth together, so grabbing and checking his mouth isn’t unreasonable.

Way more contact on Green on the retaliation than what he did to Eichel.

Did I hear that right?  3?  3 shots on goal for the Wings?  So sad.

0-2. On the bright side it moves the Red Wings to a higher draft pick. Way to tank guys. mad

At least the Wings hit double digit shots on goal before the halfway mark of the game.
