Happiness Please. Give Us Some.

To type all the negatives about this team at such a late stage of Season #12 would take too long and just too much energy than I’m willing to give.  Usually, in mid-March, I’m pleading the dwarf commissioner to just let the playoffs start.  Now?

Not so much.

St. James

Holland tells Free Press that Darren Helm has second degree MCL sprain, will miss 4-6 weeks

That’s disgusting.

But good news. Oh, we’ve got a little…

 

Nicklas Lidstrom, who will miss his 10th consecutive game Monday against the Capitals because of a deep ankle bruise, took part in the morning skate.

After a weekend of staying off the ice, Lidstrom felt much better than he did the last time he tried skating — the middle of last week.

“It felt better,” said Lidstrom, who added the swelling had gone down and X-rays taken Friday still showed nothing more than a bruise. “I’m still calling it day-to-day (for a return to games) and hoping it gets better every day.

That’s Teddy Kulfan, if you’re wondering. By now, though, you’ve seen it all over the place.  Take it easy. Rest up.  Just get us that infernal fourth seed, and claiming that as our main goal on 19 March is also disgusting. But, it is..you know, what it is.

Hey, here’s the weather in the tropical Arabian Sea today.  A little dusty.

Chief, if you were hoping to show us what a real sh*tstorm looks like, I’m sorry to say that this team pretty much beat you to it.

Hey there Master Chief.  From where I’m at right now (Washington State) taking care of an injured brother-in-law, we can see the Nimitz at it’s new homeport in Everett from the hospital where he’s recuperating.  Jobu even hates Wings fans.

Dammit Swabbie, I spent too long poking this on an ipad, so repost.

What those morons don’t realize is if TPH retires, there is a whole lot more dough available (on top of the pile already available) to go get the best UFA D-man available

Being such that they did get Stuart and White each for 0.5 Lidstroms, it’s been assumed that KH would sign a top notch, next-Norris candidate Defenseman with 1.0 Lidstrom freed up salary.  I’m not assuming that would happen, and we made need 2 b/c of Stuart leaving.  On July 1st our best Defensive pairing could be Ian White and Johnny Ericcssson, with Kronwall and Q, whom we already cut once.

What a different looking team, considering 96 not on the roster either.  Young Smith up, NyQuil too.  Do you resign Hudler?  In spite of the increase in goals, a substantial one, I’d be curious aboot what other options we might have.

One hour to game time, time for me to STFU about summer, the next CBA may be one year away.

One thing matters right now, winning tonight.

Hey, that’s aboot the same visibility I had in Kuwait for 2 years when I was at “the tip of the spear of American diplomacy”.

Evening 19!

I won’t be around for the LB as the game starts before I get home from work and then I have to go teach so I will be on DVR delay. 

You all have fun and for goodness sakes, Wings, please win!!

Chief - that’s quite a view…

Let’s go Red Wings!!!!!

And to top it all off, I had to listen to smack talk from Hurricane fans today, about how glad they are to have the Wings on the schedule this weekend.

Of course, I told ‘em a 3 game winning streak was just AWESOME work, and they should really be proud of it.

Fair. I’m subbing, and the job market ‘round here is just a tick below the Wings’ power play. Finishing up the money pit so we can sell it (for a loss) and get the hell outta here. And thineself?
