Abel to Yzerman

The Main Hatchway’s Given In

Just go ahead and let it fly.  The vomit.  Don't be embarrassed.  We'll laugh, because watching adults throw up is funny.  But we'll be spewing vomitus at the same time, which will ramp up the hilarity to a redolent degree.

Mikael Samuelsson is on the PP point.  Tatar is the "big net front presence".  Dan Cleary on the first unit.

The Wings have lost three in a row. Half the team remains hurt. Tick Tock is in a slumber of self-denial, with no moves in sight.

And Detroit sits in 9th place.  Gary's playoffs start next week after a 22 game season.

Ready, set, vomit.

Oh, and you know those inbred ruhtards will be blowing those stupid whistles because half of them literally believe Tootoo is still a Predator.

The prospects aren't even dim. They're dimmer than dim. They're dank and dark like the alley Jiri Hudler used to fester in waiting for 6 dollar hookers.

Those were the good old days there, boy.

No chance in Gary's kitchen of hell that the Wings win this thing tonite.

Tatar with one, Wally with one. James Tiberius MF Howard with a shutout because we damned well need it. Wings win 2-0. 

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Schools already closed again up here for tomorrow, day two of one hell of a storm. The Fitz would have had a bitch of a time with these gales, too. Late-February is such a beautiful time.

At least I have the Wings to get me out of the doldrums.

The last comment was a mix between sarcasm and depression, sarpression or decasm, I guess it would be called.

This is gonna be a train-wreck tonight.  Culture in the room needs to change, everyone needs to get one the same page, play the system, play hard.  Best coach in hockey, listen to him.

Hopefully Filpulla comes back soon we could use his scoring.  Oh, wait.

We can’t put our Petr out against their Pekka, because their Pekka is up but ours is down.

Wonder if our Jimmy will do.

Mikael Samuelsson is on the PP point

Lets call it what it is, Buckets pt. 2 The buck-toothed kitties get a shorty thanks to things like this. I cringe every time we get a PP, because I know it means the other team gets a goal.

I’ve eaten my slop for the night, its time for the Tootoo Twain. Lets hear boos and whistles all at the same time.

Lets see if Tatar can get one in and get Shaybutter riled up.

Only lookin for 2 points, nothing else will do.

Game On!

DET have not displayed any ability to play consistently good hockey for 60 minutes.  With the roster they have, you can’t really blame anyone.  Though it would be nice if some of the veterans showed up more consistently.

There simply is very little margin for error, and DET haven’t played anything like that type of hockey.

There is nothing like Wings’ hockey on a howling, cold, snowing night in Alpena…
Win or lose, I will be rooting for the Wings. 
It may not be pretty…but…
Wave after wave of 3rd & 4th line guys / rookies pounding on the forecheck is the way it has to be.
And Micky & Ken always make it go down like Glenfiddich…

wink

I blame Tick Tock.

Have to use young entry level talent playing above their head to be successful.  Look at Pitt.  Most of their success was on Sid and Malkins entry level deals when they could afford to put money on other positions.

With the Jarnkroks, Pulkkinens, Shaehans, Jurco’s and Frks that in 3 years we wont be able to make up for playing Tatar Andersson and Gus now?

Getting tired of the kids being the spark for the team.  Aside from Z no one else seems hungry.  Get fuching hungry, worry about jobs, care about losing enough to shoot the fuching puck on the PP.  Why is the coach having to twist these players are to try to score?

Time to go pour a drink before puck drop.

one good thing that will hopefully come from this season is that some of these young players will develop into solid NHL talent long before we’re used to that happening.

hopefully a few gems (like Brunner) will come out of this, and the team will be stronger and younger for a few years.

I to am starting to look at management as we have kids needing ice time but yet reward it to some guys who who need less.

Is there much of a pheasant season down there?  The pheasant season up here absolutely has sucked the last couple years.  All of the game birds really except for turkey.  The deer population up here has really taken a whack the last few years also.  Between global warming killing them all with extreme cold, and the CWD…chronic…something….killing them…they’ve cut tags back by about half since 2009
