Slip Us A 20

The redolent one said it very well this morning.  This record will be nice because we like records in Hockeytown. We like Cups and puppies and hookers, Charleston Chew and records.  We like consecutive playoff seasons, consecutive seasons as a Captain, consecutive seasons playing for one team, a whole lot of consecutivity.

But for all the records and the banners and all the accolades associated with being the best hockey franchise on earth, one thing is more important and Krupa nailed it.

“Is improving the power play a bigger goal than the NHL record for consecutive wins at home? You bet it is.”

Best article I’ve seen by Krupa since he started showing off his vocabulary to us sometime last year.  This record is nice, and it will be ours because the 8 pounder says so, but it pales compared to getting home ice, staying healthy and fixing the horrible power play. 

It’s a Live Blog bitches.  Nice, nifty little record on the line.  20 would be nice.  12 would be better.

Forbid JMac from touching the puck outside his own crease. That was just butt ugly.

I feel bad for Kindl… he’s got to play his side and cover for Big Error too.

Kindl had a few strong games early in the season but has been shit awful the last 2 months. Embarrassingly bad. The breakaway goal by Sam Gagner in the Oil game was incredibly bad. People tried pinning it on Ericsson but there’s nothing he could have done to help and Kindl was WAAAY out of position. Don’t know what’s wrong with the kid, but he’s been noticeably terrible of late.

Wouldn’t that require the Wings to force him to actually make some tough saves?

That’s just as ridiculous as saying Ericsson turns the puck over every shift. They’ve both had some glaring errors, but neither have been shit awful and I wouldn’t say one has been better than the other. They both bring different strengths and *#$%@&. My question is which is capable of learning and improving on what they’ve got now.

After 4 years of Big E I’m convinced he’ll never be any better than he is now.  Kindl on the other hand has potential to be better than he is now.  I’ll go with Special K.
