The F Stands For Finger And The Finger Could Really ______ Us All

Thanks to the Emperor for covering me the last few LBs, and thanks to all 19 of you for the patience. January was a slow-moving month on America’s Favorite Carrier and I already told you what February has in store for the weak-hearted Wing fan. I warned you. I told you what kind of pain was on the horizon.

And now it’s here.  Jimmy says it could be two games but then I read it might be 4 weeks until Jimmy said it was more like two weeks he’s hoping because six weeks sucks the worst kind of ass. Seriously. We’re all dead in six weeks if that’s how long Tiberius Howard is out.  Oh, and you want to trade for a backup goalie?

Don’t bother because whoever we get isn’t gonna be good enough to do the job we need done to get what belongs to us.  Baby Jesus, that tiny tadpole of love, adores us but even he can’t guarantee or even decree a Cup if we’re down to a backup goalie some shitbag team was willing to deal in February.  So…it’s James F. Howard or bust, and I’d prefer me some Jimmy if it’s all the same to you.

Transplants. Transplants galore in Gary’s hometown of Phoenix. They’re running amok, paying outrageous sums, drinking cheap beer and laying waste to the women of Glendale, if they’re single and clean…the transplants, that is.

It’s a Live Blog bitches.

Thanks… it is easy to see that E52 is a very polarizing player among fans.  I have always believed that the Wings have been extra patient with him as it was they who requested he change from Center to D.

Well it’s good to see that the refs are cracking down on stick infractions.  Albeit only against one team.

Dats with the hook right in front of the net.  THEIR NET.

Call on White was crap but the hooking for Dats was pretty clear.  And they score.  Crap.

Now the Wings have them right where they want them.

Once, again Handzal makes a play that homer would sit for.  After, of course, the goal was waived.

I like the way E moved the guy away from the front of the net with his size…..oh wait…

Even the worst PP in hockey is no match for the mighty PK of Death.  The PK of Death cannot be stopped.  It will not be stopped.  14 straight games of giving it up like a two dollar whore.  Way to go boys!!!

Would someone please shoot that damn howling dog already?  Call it an animal sacrifice or whatever you want, but that goddamn howling is driving me mental… already.

Hmm, Dogs looking for garbage.

Wings could take a cue there.

At a certain point you have to have some pride and it just doesn’t look like they do.

I think the Coyotes have better jump than the Wings.  The Wings have not come out with as much energy.  Mike Commodore looks like Ronald McDonald.

Good thing I left to go get dinner so the Wings could refocus and… oh sh*t, not again.

And THIS, more than anything else, is why there needs to be a shakeup at the trade deadline.  The chemistry on this team is not good.  Complacency from the top down.
