I NOW Consider Buffalo an Elite Team

I am not a superstitious person. But I do know facts when I see them, and here is some science:

This is a trap game.  Buffalo sucks but plays hard every night, from what I read and hear. I don't watch them, of course, because I don't watch hockey unless the Wings are involved. But I hear they're rambunctious.

The BJs are one point back, Toronto is two back. Washington 5 back.  Toronto has no chance because they're Toronto. The Caps are imploding because of their captain. The BJs have a shot at the 1 wild card and we want the 1 wild card.  We do.

And the Wings haven't lost since I've come back.  I take full credit. I deserve that credit and demand you give it to me.

How should you give it to me?

Whore style. 

It's a live blog, bitches.

Hola to you and your shooters, Chief.  Glad to have you aboard.

This is a trap game.

Really pulled no whore-style punches there.  Oy.

Our.Two.Points.  Earn ‘em, Wings.

I’m glad Chief can jump in and start a Live Blog Whore Style at 2:30 in the afternoon.

It’s exactly the kind of shake up this team has needed.  Already lining up the bottles of spirits in front of me in anticipation of the hardest game the Wings have had all year.

btw - thanks, RW.

posted in the GDT, these do help keep things “in perspective” -

and this ...

Right now, 93 points would guarantee a playoff position because only 8 teams can get to that many.

Datsyuk does not need to be the hero or bat clean-up tonight, just do a few Datsyuk things piece by piece.  Others can continue to carry the load, having Datsyuk play 13:00 of Datsyuk would be a great addition to this team.

I don’t really comment much anymore, but I just have to say, it’s been a delight to read your juvenliciousness Master Chief. You are definitely missed. Not meant to disparage George, Paul, and RedM, but there’s nothing like the prose of the sailor to get you pumped up for the best team in sports.

I would also like to take credit for the W last Saturday against the Make Me Laughs. I’ve now improved my record seeing the Wings live to 5-2-1. And I started 0-2-1. Anybody have season tickets they can lend me as well as tickets to every remaining game, and fly me all over the States, and buy me 16 playoff game tickets?

Dangle Dangle gonna dangle the Sabres outta their dangles.

Dangle.

Let’s Go Red Wings (exclamation point)

And also, bravo RWBill for the POS (I forget what they were re-named) charts. Toronto’s stagnation coupled with our rise is just a beautiful sight.

Glad to see Pavel back, but must admit some bitterness about the whole Olympic scenario. i don’t know all the facts, but I never let that stand in the way of having strong opinions about things.

I was going to ask if he scored on his own net, but that would have meant he actually entered his defensive zone.
