The Playoffs Are A Thorny Issue

So I'm still optimistic.  The trades could still be filtering in to the league office. Kenny kicked a lot of tires and we all know you don't just kick for the sake of it.  That would be...

...self-flagellating, of course.  

Yes, I've been reading.  Bad Wing fans. Screaming across each other while you type sarcastic words poking fun or even daring to question Saint Kenneth.  At some point I'm going to have time and the hardware to address that. It needs...examination.   

Now though?  It's just a simple live blog bitches.

Blue Jackets and StL already have 2 points tonight.  Edmonton trailing by a goal but only in second period.

We get zero points, things going to be tighter than my cousin’s knees after prom.

The best part about having a cold and a job to go to in six hours is that I have an excuse to say, “goodnight, I’m off to bed!” 

Go Wings!  I don’t care if you win or lose—just don’t half-ass it!

Now there are 3 teams below .500 as Dallas quit trying once they saw that the POS chart had them pegged for 9th.

Seth = Seth Jones. Top rated D man available in the draft. 6’5” 260 or something like that. Can’t miss.

do other teams abandon breaks up the ice so they can change instead, or is it just the Wings?

Bonjour bitches. Just got home from my beer league game and last game of the season. Went out for beer and pizza after a 2-0 loss. Only had 3 dmen and probably played 40 min finishing with a minus 1. Oh well playoffs start next week and time to get serious. Not really.

Next 3 goals are huge. Go get em Wings.

Doan….send in the Tootoo. 

C’mon, WTH? What is DeeeTroyIt gonna do against the thug teams in the East when they lay out a Wing?  Play their Europeon style of tuck and curl?  Somebody on this team is gonna need a major pair of stones to handle the runs on Pavs and Zzz.  Doan, for crapsake…..where are the Hanson brothers….time to put on the foil.
