Mule, My Friend…It’s Time To Dream Like A Young Man

Okie...this morning.

The Flames defense is horrible, 3.38 GA/G, 0.68 5-5 F/A;  both marks second worst in the league.

Win or go home.

I had a boss a long time ago that had a nifty ditty he'd pull out only when the time was exactly right.  Most times he was sarcastic, demanding, unrelenting.  We all saw that and most of us dug it.  There were occasions, though, when that temper would flare and the highlight reel would start spinning.  One day, I witnessed him look up from his desk, slowly.  He paused for a minute and let that gaze burn into this kid standing in front of him.  And then he said, "You're lying to me.  That's irritating.  You want to play fuch-fuch with me?

Good. Let's play fuch-fuch."

And then the destruction began.  And it was a thing to behold.

It's time for the Wings to play a little fuch-fuch.  Teams like Calgary cannot be led along like the 1am sloth, soiled and barely coherent, waiting for a Blues fan to wheel her home...whore style.

Teams like Calgary must be efficiently and mercilessly dispatched of.  

Johan Franzen claims he's "pissed."  We've seen pissed before, Mule. We saw it against this very team.

 

 

Horrific.  Pierre was beside himself. Bobby Lang was so mad he forgot to check his hair in the glass.  Nick Lidstrom's pulse accelerated to 21 beats per minute. And the Mule?

He was pissed.  

Remember? (scroll to 2:14 mark)

 

 

That's pissed.  

You want to prove your pissed, Johan?  Show us that move again. Move your big ass across the slot and fire away. Holy Hell...when's the last time we saw that move?  

Get mad, big boy.  

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  6 to 16 and then on to 12.  Just. Get. In.

IF this was my team and I was the coach, manager someone in authority, I’d really like to give the WINGS some “Red Headed” wrath in the locker room, light some fire under their butts, or clamp down on some important parts to get attention, (well I would bring in professionals for that part) anyway they need to be shook up…. sorry just sharing….

Come on Wings, you CAN DO THIS!!!!!

SO, Trevor. What you’re basically saying is that Calgary has outplayed Det. Thanks. We got that.

My feelings.. and I know it may be harsh. But if they blow this game.. They should not make it. Then don’t deserve to make it.

wow. on mute the period didn’t look that bad, except obv. the score. what game am i (half) watching?

it’s sad. all season long i’ve thought, i just don’t have the same passion for this team. when they’re bad, they look so lackluster compared to even last year or ‘10-11.

A man stands alone at the plate. This is the time for what? For individual achievement. There he stands alone. But in the field, what? Part of a team. Teamwork… Looks, throws, catches, hustles. Part of one big team. Bats himself the live-long day, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and so on. If his team don’t field… what is he? You follow me? No one. Sunny day, the stands are full of fans. What does he have to say? I’m goin’ out there for myself. But… I get nowhere unless the team wins.

obviously about baseball, but it still applies

Good evening all, just caught up on a quick read through the LB.

Jeff swallows whore style, Babcock disagrees and none of the Wings (except Brunner) give a shit.

Did I forget or miss anything?

Ya know its not that Babcock inst trying to make the team better. He’s basically trying to “wake up” the players by keeping them on their toes and shifting people around. Wanting to inspire them to work for their playing time and to come into their own as individuals.

The problem is that he seems to be ignoring the team aspect of the game. He always talks about playing within the system of the wings and working hard. The problem is the way you become competent with a system is by playing it with other people. You gain confidence in it by having it work for you, scoring goals and winning games. Its important to get a grasp on what the people you play with are good and bad at so you can compensate for their flaws, play to their strengths and learn a system with confidence in who’s beside you. After that you can change around lines because everyone’s on the same page to some degree.

He’s skipping that part and throwing people together in a desperate attempt to get more out of them NOW instead of taking the time to let them develop chemistry. In truth its hard to fault him with such a shortened season and with us being very close to falling out of the playoff race On top of that he probably assumes that they’re some major changes coming to this team down the road and isnt so much worried about them geling together right now. I still dont agree with it.
