How About BOTH Points Tonight

To be fair, perhaps that's asking too much...

... but what's "fair?" The Injury Plague is still hovering around "bubonic" levels, and that doesn't seem fair. It's not fair that the Wings "stole" two points off the safety netting, which nobody seems to want to let us forget. If all's fair in love and war - and make no mistake, this is war - well, I expect some blood and guts tonight, "Saving Private Ryan" style. It's time to collect some Ws and start pulling away from the Peleton of Suck.

The Youth Infusion + Cleary is in full swing tonight, so let's see if The Kids can make the Brain Trust's coming weeks a bit tougher.

It's a Live Blog, Bitches.

Hey its Philly.  Screw them, screw their fans and screw their whole city.  Oh, and lets not forget their GM.  We got problems with our guys?  At least we don’t have that hack Vinny sucking on the ice.  Or a grade A prick permanently on the IR in Pronger.

Take the 2 points boys.  None for these idiots.  And yeah, I’ve hated them since ‘97.

Thanks, Red. It’s gonna be a battle. They looked so lost with no Pavel and No Z. Now they have no Mule as well. Hmm. Guess we shall see.

But at least I got to see Molly McGrath. Mmmm. Good Golly Ms. Molly. She’d get it.

She was a black haired beauty with brown eyes.

Points of her own, sitting way up high.

Way up firm and high.


Let’s get both of those!

Thanks, RedM.

To be fair, perhaps that’s asking too much…

Nonsense.  It’s the only thing we’re asking for each and every game.  Starting tonight, there is a huge opportunity for the Griffwings to take a leadership role with Zata and Dangles out.  I’m not looking for it from Kronner nor Alfie.  Sheahan, Tatar, Jurco, and, hell, even 65DD are the ones I’m looking at.  Grab it, guys.  We don’t have a lot of time left with the Circus.

OUR two points, Wings.

No offense to the guy, but, yikes.

Two points would definitely be nice. That would be a great way to cap off what has been a fun day of watching people try to drive on the ice here.

on the bright side, all these injuries up front nearly allows me to forget how deficient our defense corps is.

I was in Metro Detroit in June 97.  And in the 3rd row at MCI Center in DC in June 98 when they wheeled Vladdie out onto the ice.  I cried.
