The March To The Playoffs Starts Now

Welcome back everyone and the race is on.

IwoCPO made it easy for me today by leaving this comment in one of the posts...

I like our team.  Plus, don't forget, getting Zetterberg and Krupp back (no puns intended) will be our deadline moves.

That's were we stand at this moment and I have a feeling we will be still standing at the same point come March 6th, one day after the trade deadline.

Maybe a stay at home defensemen but other than that, nada.

On to tonight, Wings/Canadiens.

Bert in, Franzen back, Pavel the same and Weiss doing circles in practice.

Howard against Budaj and tonight's game as will all others moving forward will be all about Jimmy.

Get on a roll, keep playing, look sloppy, Wings are in trouble.

It's a live blog bitches, good to see you.

March to the playoffs, limp, crawl, whatever we have to do to get there. We have a reputation to uphold here. We’re not just any NHL team, we’re the Detroit Motherfuchin Red Wings.

Good to be back

Since I hate all things Olympics, this is the first hockey, or sports in general, that I have watched in almost 3 weeks.  Been going crazy.  Hope the wings don’t disappoint me.

One of the few upsides in seasons as (relatively speaking) dismal as this one is watching the skin-deep fans writhe in perfect agony at the notion their favorite team isn’t FOREORDAINED BY JESUS HIMSELF to be awesome every year.

It’s tremendously easy to follow a team when all that means is strutting around.  It’s why so many people got into blogging about the Wings, for crying out loud.  All you had to do to blog back then was take shots at the 24+ other teams Detroit routinely creamed, call all the expansion teams noobs, and then get geared up for the few series every year against teams in Detroit’s weight class.

It’s a lot “harder” (by the internet/messageboard/talk at the bar version of hard) to do that when Detroit’s not racking up 118 points a year, where getting to the Conference Finals isn’t a fait accompli, and where a team formed in the last 20 years actually has a legit chance to beat the Wings… and that’s what the new NHL is.  Cyclical parity.  Suck to high picks, if the high picks are good then your team is good… if not, suck to more high picks.

In the Wings-specific blogosphere there’s the feeling of a gold rush town where the golds starting to dry up, and the panhandlers are getting a little wild around the eyes at the notion.  The saloons aren’t quite a full or happy, and the arguments go to knives or guns a lot quicker than they used to.

Heck, some of them have already loaded up their wagons and moved on.

Mule gets an “A.” Do we really want him to be an example for the team to follow? Let’s hope it motivates him.
