Today We Settle All Family Business

When this fire is finally done, and there's nothing but embers left and the Wings have pissed all over the ashes of the West once and for good?  It will have been the perfect way to leave this idiotic, Bettman-created sewer of a conference.  

Nashville? Eliminated from playoff contention, largely because the Wings turned it up with two weeks left.  Nice knowing you Bubba.

St. Louis? A great joke. So much promise, yet nothing to show for it.  Now resigned to sit and watch the two teams they despise the most. Again. 

Columbus? Again, another nice little team that almost got there but petered out when the Wings ratcheted up the heat.

Anaheim...a former nemesis, but now just an overrated afterthought.  Nice knowing you, Corey.

Chicago...oh, what a way to leave.  More on that in a minute.  But, if it happens, the sweetest road East would be through San Jose.  The Wings owe them and this is just the year to do it.

Chicago's loading up their top line: Kane, Sharpe, Toes.  That's the best Quenneville can do. He's tried everything else. It's his last ditch bit of genius.  Unfortunately for him, the real genius has better hair and he hunts big game. By himself. With one bullet.

3 games to do this, but you know it needs to end tonite.  You can't take it and I know for a fact I absolutely can't.  

LGRW.  Settle this. It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

is it just me or are neither of these teams particularly good?

They are just taking up space.  It’s like watching the bronze medal match.

PMC, yeah I agree but I’ll give the Bruins a slight advantage. Pens have it made. I know people say the East is more physical, but I don’t buy it. Western teams are overall better and I think it’s just as physical as the East. The Eastern teams just employ more one-dimensional enforcers, in my worthless opinion.

Holland basically said Datsyuk’s agent is in town and they will discuss extension after the season. He said exactly what you thought he would say. His body language made it seem like Datsyuk is gone.

Less I need to remind everyone, this was the highly pubbed song from Cold Play all over the tv during the playoffs in 2008, and we know what happened that year.
