RM, it’s getting that the first thing I scroll to is the injuries and scratches scratches section. Top-notch.

· Pavel Datsyuk has 12 points (6-6-12) in 9 games vs. PHI
· Henrik Zetterberg has 16 points (9-7-16) in 10 games vs. PHI

Hello Bitches,

Been skipping the LB cuz ever since I did it the first time (working online & streaming the game, could not LB as well) the Wings have won 4 straight. 

So, I’ll watch the game on NBC tonight (WHEN did stinkin PHI become our rival?) and skip talking to my favorite fake friends.  Hope it works again.

Hope y’all are well and hope Weiss actually does sumthin to earn being on the 1st line.  LGRW

Top notch GDT, Red!  Love the new look

Lets see:

3 top players out (+ Bert)

Game on NBC (no Ken & Mick/Ozzie)

Flyers got shutout last game

This be ugly

Or if Weiss shows up, it could be glorious.  Hell, he could earn his entire paycheck in the next 2-4 weeks if he comes to play.

Thanks, RedM.  Having a hot tea right now as this so-called “Hard Freeze” is sweeping through the Las Vegas valley.  Good looking GDT as always.

· Pavel Datsyuk - “Why I see two puck? Is okay, I take both anyway.”
· Todd Bertuzzi - I’m just going to back away… wait, I didn’t mean to say “ba—“ *BOOM*
· Henrik Zetterberg - Bertuzzi’s back


Two of the world’s best players are out against a dysfuctional Flyers team.  Yeah, that’s gonna be warm our hearts to the core.  sick

Go Wings.

This warms the cockles of my heart

· Brendan Smith - 3 pts in last 2 GP

This makes me say “In more shocking news, the sun rose in the east this morning”

· Kyle Quincey - 0 pts in last 12 GP
· Jakub Kindl - 2 pts in last 8 GP
· Mikael Samuelsson - 0 pts in last 7 GP
· Stephen Weiss - 0 pts in last 5 GP

Tell Zetterman to get some oxycontin. I ended up on a gurney in the ER Monday night with horrible back pain, and they gave me that after morphine and Dilaudid didn’t work.

Oxycontin is the shit, boy,lemme tellya what.My new BFF.

Well, once Zetterburg goes LTIR I think the wings will be maxed out on cap but still have lots of mobility come the trade deadline.  At least, to my understanding of the 10th year level of calculus that is the cap.  Which is minimal at best.
