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.

DET’s infatuation with point shots is maddening.

“I thought they had better jump than we did. I don’t think we came out with as much energy. It took us a couple of periods to get going.”

but in the end we came on strong in the third and out hustled them and won the game???

please let this be what happens.

I know its very un Wing like but they should just give Smith a love tap to keep him in net more, his ability to play that puck is frustrating.

At some point you’d think the boys would figure out they’ve gotta lay the puck in the corner if they’re gonna dump it. No hard arounds, No half way for pressure behind the net. Its gotta hit the corner and sit. Smith is killing everything else.

Can I get an amen if you’re tired of seeing Hudler, Filppula, and Zetterberg make that damn drop pass instead of shooting or getting the puck deep?

Come on already, put the fuchin third line out there for the power play.  Shit this is nauseating to watch.

Nice interference run by Smith.  Another terrible PP, they know you can shoot it from somewhere besides the point and goal line right?
