The Ducks Are Going To Use One Of Those Elmer Fudd Guns And Blast Us

We're about to Live Blog a shipwreck.

I have nothing good to report.  Anaheim is the best team in hockey right now.  We are the 7th best team in the Western Conference, if that.  Anaheim hasn't lost at home since 1985.  The Wings are in a fun little dance we like to call, "One step forward, eight steps back right into a pile of steaming dog shit."

Mike Babcock actually said...

“Bert and Helmer and Sammy (Mikael Samuelsson) have been on our roster, but I haven't seen them. It would be like a trade-deadline deal (getting one or two back). It would be unbelievable to have them.

God. Please. Just STFU.

But hey, don't worry.  The trade deadline's right around the corner and the Wings are ready to stick some shishkabob spears into some burning meat just to see if it's raw or cooked and if it's cooked, well then shit let's send it down to GR to get even more cooked but if it's raw? Well hell. If it's raw, you let a good talented defenseman sign with Edmonton instead of making a big push to get him in Detroit because Kyle Quincey, for instance, is wayyyy better than, oh I don't know...Justin Schultz?

And if you don't learn your lesson from that, then you go ahead and do what the smart kids tell you is the stupidest fuching thing ever...you repeat the same mistake.  What am I saying?

Don't even think about this Dekeyser kid. Thinking about it is setting yourself up and that leads to nothing but disgust because Tick Tock's trying to decide whether we can afford yet another young player who makes less than 500 thousand, eh?

What he's really trying to do, and he's said as much, is figure out whether the Wings are a playoff team.  Well, are they? Huh? We'll find out soon enough. Tonite. Sunday. In Anaheim. It's not looking good. Not one bit.

Live Blog it, bitches.  The ugliness is just beginning, really.

Having actually watched most of the game for a change all I can say is SHOOT THE PUCK FRANZEN.

Sorry, this team’s inconsistency remains the thorn in tonight’s rose.  I do NOT expect the same effort against these same DuhUcks on Sunday night. 

I am not impressed.

These are a series of TRAP games, and for once, they are trap games for the OTHER teams.

I like our chances.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the score this morning, and then when I watched and saw the night Abby had!  Whatever happens from here on out, I’m really happy for the kid. 

Count me among those who thought it was a stretch putting him on one of the top lines, but I never ragged on him personally because he works his ass off every game.  So yes, I am happy as I can be for him. 

Sure hope the Wings can bring it again next game.

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

“I didn’t play anywhere during the lockout and I had a slow start. It took a little bit for me to get my legs underneath me and get my hands and everything going good. I think it took me about 10 games to do that—and I think I’m speaking for most of the guys who didn’t play during the lockout. But thankfully, we won’t have to go through it for another eight years.”

Quote of the night from Justin Abdelkader, showing that the players are aware the owners are already laying the groundwork for the next lockout.

They fired Murph for low ratings?  What the hell? 

Dear Fox Sports:  the product on the ice is what drives ratings.  Please come up with a better excuse.

I sent an email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) , not that it will make a difference.  My gist was that Murphy was popular with the fans because of, not inspite of, his informal fan-to-fan style, some other things, and that if viewership is down it is because of the lockout turning many fans against the NHL, and the Wings not winning at the same high level as in the past.

I’m really stunned by the news, there has to be more to it than “lower ratings”.  He’s certainly more enjoyable to listen to than that stiff as a board guy in the studio.
