Abel to Yzerman

We Got a Lot of Losses…

"YEAH THAT'S RIGHT WE GOTTA LOT OF EM, LET'S GO! NOBODY'S BETTER THAN US! THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE FOR GUYS - TO WIN!"

The Hansons had it right, but can the Wings put on their inner foil? Can they "GET OUT THERE AND STICK 'EM" or "*#$%@&' CHRIST, POP 'EM?"

I don't know.

One thing I do know, however, is that I'm totally done with the veritable Biblical Plague of Injuries that's afflicted the Wings. I mean, I was done before, but now I'm done; Franzen's the new "Stillwoozy," Datsyuk didn't know he was this injured, Weiss had to have his abdomen stitched back together, and Helm is simply broken.

Add to that Gustvasson, Alfredsson, Ericsson, and probably some more names with a lot of 'S'es, and here we are.

Well, shit.

The Kids are getting their chances, but a questionable 1st line a 3rd line, and two 4th lines just don't seem to be a competitve formula in Little Gary's Parity Soaked Super Happy Fun League...

... excuses, excuses. Uncle Mike doesn't want to hear them, so why should we?

I guess I'll have to break out the big words again tonight:

JUST. *#$%@&. WIN.

There, happy now? Can we squeeze a win out of our asses tonight instead of the usual diamonds?

I really, truly, genuinely hope so, or this is going to be one depressing Live Blog, Bitches.

Thank you Red,

I actually feel better reading you now…..it’s nice to know I am not the only one feeling this pain here….You are totally right…...but I have a feeling the hockey gods really hate us right now…I mean damn…...how bad can this get….


Wait…..I guess it can get worse….nooooooooooooooo

In good all fashion French Canadian .....here is how I would describe our situation:

“On est dans marde calisse”

A translation of “being in deep shit” does not do it justice…at all….

I’m going to let the Wings borrow my fantasy team’s theme song for the remainder of the season:

If it weren’t for bad luck,
I’d have no luck at all.
Gloom, Despair
and Agony on me.

Gimme a grape or an orange, and none of that stinkin’ root beer.

Actually, just gimme a fuching win.

Who’da thunk it would be the Grand Rapids Griffins playing these meaningful pre-Olympics games? I’d have laughed and called you crazy if you had told me that before the season started.

Anyway. Just win, baby!

My IPhone NHL app says tonight’s game is a GCL Free Sample game, so hopefully some of you in need of a feed can get the game there.  Share here if it works, please.  I’m a subscriber, so I can’t tell if it’s free on computer or just on IPhone. 

LGRW!!!!!

Broken players don’t matter tonight, just go kick the rags ass!  Take the two points and tell them to go cry to their boy Avery, wherever the hell he is.

Its free on iPhone only from what I can tell.  Not my first choice.  If anyone has a better lead hit me up please.

Thanks, Kate.  I’ll probably take them up on it, but given how so far behind their feed is compared to the other guys, well, we’ll see.

I was afraid of that, bezukov, ‘cuz I didn’t see any reference to it on the computer.  Sorry.  IPhone is better than nothing, though.  And maybe it will also work on IPad?
