I NOW Consider Gustav Nyquist A Hall of Famer

You all know what I didn't shut this morning. And I know better.  I do.  Clearly, I've jinxed us.  The possibility of the Wings not falling prey to this Trap Game are so slim, so very slim.  Just start considering the scenarios now...the Wings-lose, BJs-win scenarios.  And it's my fault. I know.  Too much swagger. Too soon.

They played so well last night, so much deja vu (not the club) and remembering.

Two straight games of happiness. Two straight games to remind us of what could be, but that's all over.  Three (games, not goals) is too much to ask and I know that.  

It's imperative that we open the club car now.  Don't clean it.  Just open it and waddle up.  Voox is there.  He's been there all day and is incoherent.  Kate will be there and she'll be optimistic but quick to remind you, me, all of us that mouths are not to be opened whore-style so early.  Bill will have his graphs and he'll be hitting on my wife. Again.  Rummy will be soaking in a tub, but it's not really a tub because we can't afford it. It's just a trough, and it's filled with warm PBR but he doesn't care.  The old stand bys will show up: Gabe and AndrewfromAnnArbor.  Baroque. Sully, JJ, Tyler and all the other 19 who've started their own blogs.  Everyone will be there and it will be raucus and glorious.  

And my dirty whore mouth will remain shut.  Pets are in play tonite.  Their survival is not required.  Neighbors, remember them?  They must understand that a medium-sized fire is not the end of the world.  

It's a Live Blog, bitches. Early start, just like a playoff game.  Because that's exactly what this is.  God save us all. RSV.

But wait...it can't end there, can it?  I just remembered. It's our last game against the Central, Gary's special creation.  Our last game against our fake rivals, our last game as divisional partners with Shea Weber, who slammed Henrik Zetterberg's head into the glass last playoffs but was not penalized because Gary Bettman directed leniency because it was a Wing he hit and not Rosby or a Hawk.  

So, I'm taking it all back and I'm opening my Whore Mouth wide, like on Cinemax.  

Wings wrap this fucher up tonite convincingly. BJs lose, if that matters.  And we start thinking about what matters most.  LGRW.

Ahoy, Master Chief.  A tall pint of Guinness tipped to you, Sir.

2.5 hours early.  Always a good time for a Guinness.

I love Guinness.

Shea Weber needs his head slamming ass handed to him, we owe it to him and the Prednecks.
2 points in regulation, nothing less… straight up whore style and ram it down their throats.

Well, then raising my bottle of Guinness Draught to the 19 and:

May you…
Work like you don’t need the money,
Love like you’ve never been hurt,
Dance like no-one is watching,
Screw like it’s being filmed,
And drink like a true Irishman.

Is it true Shea Weber wanted to play baseball but opted for hockey as skates provided the additional lift so his knuckles would not drag?

A win is a must.  A Kronwalling of his stupid chump ass would be a bonus.

Go, you Upstart Wings!

So it will be like a HS renuion except without the 30 year old cliques.

I wonder what osrt, Animal Drew, and Aimee in Austin are up to?

Heck, maybe gramps will even make an appearance?

Just wanted to say NyQuil had more Takeaways than Dats last night! No I didn’t just say less, I said more. Holy fuch right?

Also someone brought up Lashoff in the Shitcago thread and was just wondering can you guys think of a reason he’s not playing. His stay at home style would be perfect for some of our more offensive d-men and he was way more consistent in every game he played than Kindl or Quincey have ever been. Would love to see what Dekeyser and him could do, or Smith and him, or Kronwall and him, or Ericsson and him. You get the point.

Something something silly troll, Nyquist hasn’t even played a lot of seasons, he’s too young and isn’t Russian, when will we think of the chrilden?

That said, Nyquist is definitely a hall-of-famer in my book now.

That was badly posted on my part, MO.  I should’ve said, “If it were me, I’d have Lashoff in for Q…”

But that’s the damn truth.

Despite my not necessarily agreeing with some of the ideas bandied about this season, the Master Chief’s blog is why I started coming here several years ago.

It’s why I keep coming back.

Just like Red Wings Hockey, I keep coming back no matter what “misery” I may be “forced” to endure; times like these are why the sweet, bouncing, dribbling, soiled-loincloth-wearing Baby Jeebus invented alcohol.

I’m tipping my Foothills Brewing “People’s Porter” to The Chief, George Malik, The Emperor and his Korner, and to all of The 19 tonight. It’s been a wild ride even Mr. Toad would be hesitant to board, and I wouldn’t want to be on it with anyone else.

Let’s keep it rolling tonight, shall we? 22 years and counting.

Mouth open, whore-style.

Hey, Master Chief. Though we have never exchanged comments or what not.. I’m relatively new to the 19. I’ve been reading for only about 3 years now. And been a member for a couple.. But I just want you to know.. You are my Blog Idol. The things you type make me so very happy to be a Red Wings fan. And it all started cause of my father. *#$%@& that idol thing, you’re my Blog Hero. I *#$%@& love this place. I tip the brim of my cap to you, good sir, for all that you do.. Military wise and Hockey wise. Safe sailing, man.

Former AW3 - Me.

PS. Anything less than 2 points is uncivilized.

PSS. COME ON DALLAS!

I’m still pissed Gus didnt get to play all season up in the D. He’s a gamer/thief/magician. None of those necessarily in that order. Not to mention the chemistry he and Andersson have together, just love watching them play with one another.

And Tick-Tock(since I know you are reading this), give great consideration and go out and sign Clarkson from NJ in the near future.

GAME ON!

Tonight is going to go a long way to deciding how much hope I’m going to have.

The Switch in the “ON” position is a terrible, terrible thing for the Predators.

I’m going to start drinking now in preparation for the Dallas game.

Herm, he’ll probably show up when the Wings are in and says, “Two things will affect the Wings chances:  injuries and officiating.”

Gramps has been around a little this year but not enough.
I am glad to say I had the pleasure of meeting him on a trip to Detroyet for a game a few years ago now… speaking of that trip it was Baroques first game in person IIRC.
Also makes me think of NateA…. where has he been??

Just being a Lidstrom type downer, the last thing the Wings need to do is get several guys sent off or injured or ejected and dragged down to Weber’s level, when we need all aboard for 2 points.

Remember, McCarty waited a whole year.
