Rosby On Tap

The Wings will beat Washington and Pittsburgh in the same weekend and every single one of us will spend the rest of the spring and summer pissed off that talent resides on this team to win like that, over those teams, and still miss the playoffs.

It would be nice if the Wings defeated Pittsburgh today. That would be fun, because defeating that team--from what I remember--seems to be fun.  

But, during commercials or waiting for the shootout to start, I'd like you to ruminate over this little nugget.

“I’ll do anything to win,” he said Friday. “If we have to fix our cap situation, we can do it after the season.”

Remember when Ken Holland said that?  Do you? Do you remember when he had the nuts and the spunk, the swagger, to say that?

Me either. That was Jim Rutherford, Pittsburgh GM, last week, via 30 Thoughts.

What do we get? "Trades are hard" and we're going to "kick some tires."

Enjoy your Sunday.

LGRW and for God's sake FKH ASAP.

LGRW!

And yeah. KH is too comfortable here. I doubt he could build a minor league team worth a damn, at this point. :\

Wait, what?  It’s possible to fix the cap situation?  I was under the impression a team’s cap situation was just perpetually screwed.  big surprise

Beating Pittsburgh is always nice.

That was one of the worst PP’s of the year, in a year of ridiculously bad Red Wing PP’s.

So sick of hearing about a miraculous save when it was the shooter just hitting the goalie.

Exactly. It might have been good positioning by the goalie, but it wasn’t some sort of spectacular save.
