Been Nice Knowing You Boys…Now Stay Out Of Detroit

As the Emperor posted a bit ago...realignment's a reality.  Hopefully, that means Gary's been beaten down enough to give his dwarf consent to let the Wings head back East where we/they belong.

We like you Edmonton, and we like you Calgary. We dig you Vancouver and Anaheim you'll always be garbage...but it's time to say sayonara.

The Oil at home tonite and we'd really like to say we won't see this again with any consistency for some time to come.  They're young, good, fast and they live way farther left than our boys ever need to travel.

Ian White is sitting because he is, much like Gary, small in stature.  He's been sitting for a while and he's upset. We get it. But the D's improved since the little man sat down.

I'm telling you absolutely nothing you don't already know.  So crack a few and let's Live Blog this biotttchhhhhh, bitches.

Realignement also means an excuse to buy NHL14. Been playing a self-updated NHL12 so far.

I bought NHL ‘10, and haven’t gotten one since, though I have rented 11 and 12, and they’re both still plagued with awful AI.

Look at Tatar go. Kid’s a player.

Tatar really wants that puck doesn’t he! If only he had someone who specializes in giving it to him. . .

Iiked 12, but 13 is a glitchy mess, and they keep focusing more and more on that card game mode so you’ll buy more useless shit after already paying 60 bucks

Tatar, Kindl, Smith, Brunner, Lashoff, Andersson…. the youth movement has had its growning pains, but this team is starting to coalesce, and the rookies are looking like they belong.  Hopefully the brass starts to cut the fat in the teams veteran core.

Yeah, and with Nyquist coming up next season and Sheahan and Ferraro knocking on the door, pretty sure one decent trade/FA forward signing should shore it up nicely.

The defense, however, is a different story. I have a feeling Billins will be a Red Wing (much to the chagrin of more than few) and Alqvist is… well, he’s his and miss for me. Sproul and Ouelett will be nice to have in the system as well (especially Sproul).

So I saw a headline about the relative of Osama Bin Laden who was arrested recently which read “Bin Laden Kin Nabbed” and I initially thought that was the guy’s name.

There’s a bar on the main drag here in Columbus (in the arts district no less) that has four shelves of Wild Irish Rose behind the bar.  The place is cash only….
