What We All Want

As fans of this storied franchise, what we all want is for our team to win. These days however, it's finally starting to sink in on what to expect. Watching so called professionals skating helter skelter all over the place, making passes to no one, leaving gaping holes for other teams to skate right through and score. Running around in our own end with seemingly no concept on how to play hockey.

It's beginning to look a lot like a new Dead Things era, and really, how much more we can take? It's no fun when what used to be anticipation before any game, has instead become dread.

This organization has got to give us a reason to keep watching.  Eh?

It's a Live Blog! Bitches!

Larkin. And AA.

About the only two reasons to watch.

...but I’ll still be watching. Because overall, hockey is the best sport out there. A classic Mantha snipe is what dreams are made of. If only we could see it more consistently…

It’s the stuff we Wingaholics are made of.  wink

Was about to comment on Green not playing the Hawks’ rush well letting the guy behind him, but I guess coming right down and scoring a few seconds later makes up for it.

Good first 10. Petey not tested at all, but he looks to have solid positioning and control.

Turgeon took a stinger but atta boy on that blocked shot.

Did anyone else notice AA and Larkin maybe switching off at least faceoff duties? Still trying to get AA at center?

Really. I’m surprised. Well, good for him and good for the team. If he can be a center…
