Not me. I feel bad for the Fans, but we’re doing to ourselves. Every time we watch 3 periods of fail, and,OT plus Gimmick. Gluttons for punishment, or, Eternal Optimism?

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thanks RM.

Bitches.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

My only prediction is that there will be more fans at sporadic bantam “A” games in Ontario tonight than at this game.

Apathy is setting in among the non-diehard fans, Wings, time to step it up a notch or fifteen.

Looking forward to the Habs/Blues game, this could tell if the Habs are the real deal or not (hoping for not)

Sharks / Kings is THE game of the night, but there is no way in hell I can stay up until 10:30 on a work night (last work night for the next sixteen days, so that’s a bonus).

As Scrooge says, “Heaven and Christmastime be praised!”

I hear ya, Alan, but I have it on good authority that these guys are very fragile right now.
What if they are so busy wringing their hands, they can’t grip their hockey sticks?

Someone tell Monster all he has to do is let the puck hit him. Anything else is overkill.

Here’s hoping Datsyuk can get the 1st line moving well tonight.

Thanks Red!

Things could be worse boys & gurls.  Thank Jobu we are not in that Western Conference.  The Wings point total would have them staring up at most of the Conference.

                                        WILD CARD BABY!! 

I predict a break out game for Dan Frickin Cleary. Records will be set, careers enhanced, wimmen will blush, puppies will clap, and the baby jeebus will be smiling.

and, and, and, besides…Tootoo is back!

LGRW !!!!!

Jeez, I take a vacation and come back to find the Wings injury list is longer than Woodward Avenue, they can’t buy a win at home and the Master Chief decided to retire from blogging.

Thank Dog, Lil’ Gary finally moved the Wings to the East or else life as a Wings fan would be even uglier.

Hudler 30 pts in 34 GP! How is this perimeter playing turd pointing for much?
The Calgary livin must be to his liking.
Bert and Toots on same line? Haha, damn Babs gong to mix and max extreme. Bert must of pissed Babs off with his effort in that Ducks game but then again Brendan Smith was about the only player that was wasn’t in the minus and Smith played the most minutes of any Red Wing in that game.
Babs doesn’t like Toots so he’ll play about 7 mins and next game be a healthy scratch. He should of been played more in the playoffs.
Go Griffins! er Wings.

Great job RM even though I don’t say it every time.  And I really liked your song and was humming it over the course of that day.  Keep up the good work.

IMO Pavel carried the team on his back in that final period and OT like Z did to keep them in the playoff hunt last year ...  that’s the leadership we needed .... think this could be the turn around grin
