Back To Winslow

Aloha.  Thanks to Paul for filling in with the LBs and welcome to Red Menace who's assumed the title of GDT Czar.

Quite the coincidence the other night.  2 minutes and change into the game and one of scumbag Patty's henchmen drills Kronwall from behind.  Right off the hop, eh Twitchy? Incidental, I'm sure.  The only thing missing was Lemieux's 22 and the side boards.  

Aside from Kronwall's "minor concussion", all is looking up. Helm is skating in GR. Howard's back but the big boy did well in his absence.  Your boy Alfredsson is on fire, so is your long-time boy Pavel. Health is decent. Uncle Mike is happy. He's got plenty to tinker with and we have little to complain about...so far.

The East is...winnable.  

8 games in and I'm, naturally, highly optimistic.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

I was hoping to hear an explanation of the no-goal from Possum Smith’s flop.

Osgood just called out the Wings for standing around against a team that played last night.

Ken Daniels biting his tongue on that Lashoff penalty.  Osgood diplomatically steps in and comments so Ken doesn’t have to.

Ozzie’s learning fast, guys.

I think this might honestly be the last we see of Brendan Smith for at least a good long while.

Might be the last we see of him at all, period.

Posted by MoreShoot on 10/19/13 at 11:16 PM ET

After reviewing the footage, Smith believes that Smith cannot be blamed for any of the goals he was on the ice for.  Further more, Smith would like you to remember that Smith is the greatest thing since sliced bread.  His mom and Babs told him so.

Okay, I can’t watch this anymore. For some reason, this loss is REALLY pissing me off. The first ten minutes of the game were so good.

We need Helm, Tatar, and Nyquist NOW. Not 10 games from now, NOW. Get rid of the spare parts in any way you can, Holland. The Wings can be better than this this year.

The Red Wings have outplayed one team this year: The Flyers.

They could easily be 1-8.

The only plus side is that with Eaves/Helm returning, it will force Holland to do his job, and maybe we’ll finally see Gus where he belongs.  unfortunately, I think Tatar is fuched as long as Babs is coaching
