Helene St. James: TPSH Will Win The Pulitzer

No one else seems to have heard it.  The emperor's kept us updated in the comment section of this TMR post.  A quote like this, during a season like this, at a political time like this when a misplaced comma equals "fake news."

But, here it is.

“He is probably one of the best competitors I’ve ever been around in my life,” Blashill said. “His competitive desire is unreal. It’s not an outwardly competitiveness where he is real emotional -- it’s just his ability to grind.

I believe we will make the playoffs because of Henrik Zetterberg.”

Helene St. James, hall of fame lemming and Holland machine lackey, actually used quotes to indicate Jeff Blashill said that today. Word for word. 

Teddy Ballgame Kulfan ran a game day story about the same time as Holland's muse, Helene, did.  After he actually used a line from Babcock stating, for the 78th time this year that he believes his team is on the exciting cusp of "a run", he got to the part that prefaced Helene's...interpretation. Kulfan's quotes were missing that pivotal line. 

… Blashill still feels the Red Wings can make a playoff push, due mainly to the competitiveness of captain Henrik Zetterberg.

“He’s one of the best competitors in the game,” Blashill said. “He has great hockey smarts and he’s great on the puck, but what separates him from everyone else is his competitiveness and his approach every single day.”

Not a quote. Paraphrased. Even Kulfan would have seen the news value had Blashill said that in an open forum kind of deal.  St. James got the magic quote. Nobody else did. Maybe she read it on Nice Mike Babcock's private Myspace page. Maybe he whispered it to her. Maybe he signed it to her or tapped it in morse code via blinks of his glazed eyes. 

Whatever. 

Blashill is an idiot for uttering and Helene St. James is borderline flatlining, and I mean barely above basic formation of thought, like three-word vocabulary dense, like wade through mud to drink Hamms beer chased by Yoohoo while wearing a full-length onesie with a charcoal sketch of Keith Tkachuk spread prodigously across the ass, that kind of dumb, for writing it. 

A nice diversion on a Friday as we wait anxiously for a 9pm start to a game means nothing.

It's a Live Blog, though, bitches.  It's a Live Blog.

LGRW, FKH ASAP, promote HSJ to president of the Holland Team of Advisors.

God bless Blashill if he said that. But I’ve got a pinched nerve in my back and could use some of his drugs.

I wouldn’t expect him to say anything less, but that’s tilting at windmills kinda stuff.

Thanks Ken, mentioning Calgary takes a lot of penalties pretty much assures zero PP time for Detroit.

Had the puck in the zone for 45 seconds or so and the puck was within 5 feet of the boards the whole time.  Tough to score from there.

How is it possible to leave the points open and still leave someone uncovered in front of the net?

I wonder if the opposition coach laughs every time Blashill puts the fourth line on for an offensive zone faceoff.

Not a horrible period by the WIngs who looked decent for a reasonable amount of time, but that bad/stupid turnover by Kronwall really stands out.  Veteran leadership….yay.  sick

Tatar can’t skate with the puck - he is not the answer to entering the zone.
