Going For Thirteen

It looks like the Wings are going for their thirteenth loss in a row tonight. That's the way I approach most games nowadays. Given the way things are going the Wings could be tying some old records very soon. Record number of losses in a row, which is a bad thing for the fans. We'll find out soon enough....

I’d really wish Yzerman would just come out and say: EVERYONE starting with the coach will be evaluated after the season. At least that would be something.

Hello reprobates.

Hands of Elm seemed to put that past Hellagoalie before he saw it.  The way this team locks down in the second and third periods signals a good chance at a win tonight !

And tonight is the anniversary of the bombing of the US Embassy Kuwait to which I was posted at the time as an advisor to the Ministry of Defence.  It was in the era of the bombing of the USMC barracks in Lebanon and the weeks long shelling of Beirut by the USS New Jersey, and the rise of the Commodore 64 lol.

What do y’all think aboot Pete DeBoer taking over the coaching duties?

Not real sure, but, how could he do any worse?  I did read that he was a great coach in the minor leagues with developing younger players.

I read the same thing. Yzerman should come out and say my earlier suggestion or make the move.

DeBoer got fired for a 5 game losing streak. Go figure.

Read good things aboot DeBoer with young players.
Wish we could have got Trotz when we had the chance. He seems to be the master of getting the most out oot of the players he has had at his disposal.
