Perfection

This was captured and posted this morning by A2Y's RWBill.  It's one of the greatest things I've ever seen.  We, the 19, thank you fans of all other teams.  We thank you for despising our Wings, and even us.  We know why you do, and it's awesome. Enjoy this picture, just as we've enjoyed watching our Wings rule this league since 1997.

As a side note, NHL Network is re-broadcasting last night’s game in aboot 15 minutes.  However, get this, it’s STILL FREAKIN’ BLACKED OUT.  That’s right, a RE-BROADCAST is blacked out.  FUCH YOU DUCKS, FUCH YOU NHL NETWORK, but most of all FUCH YOU LIL’ GARY.

As long as I live, I will never understand the attitudes of media rights holders.

yeah I don’t think Ducks fans are that passionate… that looks more like it’s probably a Wings fan (Garth?) upset that they can no longer claim the Wings should WAIVE Abby with a straight face

Living within a couple miles of the Honda Center, I am loving the hockey conversations with the local Ducks fans this morning:

Fasth pulled.

12 game home win streak gone.

Abdelkader Hat trick.

Ericsson going with Getzlaf.

Ryan chasing Smith around and then getting popped. A truly target rich environment.

Sorry dude, but the thing about sarcasm is that for it to work you have to say it with a straight face.

I’m not sure I understand your point… are you actually saying your daily rants this season about cutting/waiving Abby have all been sarcastic? If so, you’ve been extremely devoted to a pretty bad joke.

a memo from the coach to you (I know, I know… you’d TOTALLY be a better coach (and GM!)):

“I’ve heard over the last little while, ‘Why is he playing Abby there? He’s not the right guy to play there,’ ‘’ Babcock said. “Well, we think he is the right guy to play there.

“With his hard work, he’s being rewarded. Good for him, he’s got to feel good about himself. His job isn’t to do that (score), his job is to get to the net front, to get the puck back for (Datsyuk) and do the heavy lifting for them, and that’s what he’s been doing.’‘

My family and I will be in section 206 row 6, look for the “Bring back Murphy” sign.  Im going to buy a large piece of poster board now.  Fox Sports Detroit will see what happens when they mess with The 19.

I’m not sure I understand your point…

Colour me surprised

My daily rants have been about Abdelkader not being on Datsyuk’s line.  I think I’ve suggested once that he be waived, and that was sarcastically because as much as I don’t want him on Datsyuk’s line, I also don’t want him playing in GR with his cap hit still being carried by the Wings.  I also think if they were to get rid of him, only a shitty GM would go the way of waiving him without even trying to get something in return.

a memo from the coach to you (I know, I know… you’d TOTALLY be a better coach (and GM!)):

That’s cute.  Because, you know, I’m sure Abdelkader is going to continue to have 3-goal, 4-point nights for the rest of the season on Datsyuk’s wing, right?

I love that Abdelkader’s complete lack of production on Datsyuk’s wing for half the season was a BS reason to move him to another line but suddenly one game of showing that he can be more than a pylon to have pucks bounced off of him now proves that he belongs there.

Yes.  He had a fantastic game.  And in that one game he got FOUR TIMES as many points as he’s had in the rest of his stint on Datsyuk’s wing.

Good for him.  Let’s clone him and put one of him on all four lines and then every one of them can get a hat trick every game.  Huzzah, all Detroit’s problems have disappeared because Abdelkader had one good game on Datsyuk’s wing!

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!  Game starts at 4:35 on FSD Plus, which I don’t get.  But I’ll be listening. 

LET’S GO BLUE!

I loved that moment also.  The mind of the body attached to this finger was no doubt pissed anyway because, again, half of his home arena was the color of the hated Detroyet Red Wings, and by half way through the third period there were not even enough home town fans left to drown out the Lets Go Red Wings chants. 

Such is the Sucky Life of a hockey fan of a Southern California team.
