Happy New Year’s everyone.

Not sure what this means , but I just discovered that Max Paccoretti (a 30 goal guy multiple times) is under contract for $4.5 , while Tatar , Nielsen are both north of the $4.5 that Paccoretti makes.

Like I said, I’m not sure what this means, but it doesn’t make sense to me….

I was at the Pistons game last night…and I actually enjoyed It? There was energy. People actually rooting for the home team.

With the wings…its just blah. Goal or fight the crowd erupts, but gone are the days of dueling Lets Go Red Wings and Go leafs Go chants. Rarely do we hear the Lets Go Red Wings chant by itself.

But hey, the folks at this game get a rally towel. Woop


....f*** crosby and the entire penguins organization.

The first five minutes and four seconds I bet it has been in the Red Wings zone for six minutes. It is only a matter of time, at this rate.

Something to think about

Illicth sell wings to Gilbert

Gilbert sell Cavs to Illicth

The teams stay in their own cities

45 games left in the season, say 98 points to make the playoffs, which leaves the Wings in need of about 63.  Why, that’s just winning about 71% of their remaining games.  Not a problem for a team in 28th place, playing better than their record shows, and taking it “one game at a time.”

The pragmatist in me says, sell whatever veteran assets aren’t part of the long term plan and shoot for a top 3 draft pick, since the season is lost.  I’m going to be a bit depressed if this team claws its way back up to 20th place and keeps “the process” alive.

We’re getting out-hustled tonight thus far, and I have to say I’m disappointed… but it’s not entirely unexpected.

That was always the compliment the Wings got for years from opponents. Now ,not so much and it shows

Funny how you can forget game times when the Wings are no longer a priority.
