Nice Schedule, Little Fella. Live Blog Another Example Of Gary’s JV Idiocy

Go back with me, won’t you?  Back, back, back to October when we so redolently pointed out the fact that the Wings were being scheduled nothing but weekend games in order to pad owners’ wallets early.  We mentioned it here and next thing you know the trolls came out and said mean things.

“Little Gary’s letting “us” play hockey again”
Man is that self-indulgent and whiny.

Is Bettman the scheduler?  Is a 5 game break in October really a huge blow?  I believe a comment section is there to keep a writer a bit honest.

Actually, the comment section is there to..well, I’m not sure but I just know that I dig it and always have. My response was brilliant and long-winded.

He’s the commissioner.  Therefore he’s the scheduler, disciplinarian, overseer of transactions, janitor. Every bit of it. It’s all his responsibility. It’s called leadership and it’s why he “earns” those 7million every year.

Two five-day breaks. Not just one.  Two, in the first three weeks of the season.  No big deal now but wait until Jan and Feb when we have all those games crammed together and the injuries start piling up.

Now, to present day.  Luckily our injury situation is better than it has been in years.  But tonite’s a prime example of why that could change quickly.  Last night in Hockeytown, tonite in Dallas where Gary wanted to build from the South up.  Detroit, Dallas all in 48 hours…when the Wings stewed and sat over the course of two five-day breaks in the first three weeks of the season.

Nice schedule, Gary. Nice league, toad.

Live Blog it, bitches and hope for health.

12 in ‘12, baby Jesus willing.

I dont know what was the best part of the shootout, Happy’s goal or him almost taking out the linesman with his stick afterwords.

Err… why? First goal was largely his fault for not sealing the lower half, deflection or not. Got pulled out of position several times, including the final seconds of the 3rd and nearly lost the game. Credit for standing tall in the shootout, but it was not the best showing. Again.

I don’t expect all-star play from a backup or anything, but he is not inspiring me with much confidence this year.

A sad commentary on how BUSH LEAGUE the NHL has become. We have watched our team struggle in many areas this year, we’ve been very frustrated many nights, and they lead the league in wins?

A couple of weeks ago, we briefly took the Central lead, and if memory serves, we lost 3 straight and plummeted to 38th in the league, or some shit.

Three point games and piss poor scheduling of those games have made a joke of things.

And Gary’s goal of having any of 26 teams with playoff possibilities on the last weekend of the season will sell tickets. In towns where it never gets cold enough to create ice outdoors.

If it weren’t for the Red Wings, I would be paying about as much attention to pro hockey as I do pro basketball. None.

Climbing down off my soapbox now. And Steve Ott can still eat a dick.
