Unwatchable

The Wings are becoming completely unwatchable. If you think yesterday's game was bad, just wait a few minutes. If you check out early, or, don't participate today, don't feel bad. That's exactly the way the Wings have been playing.......

Hello Reprobates:
Thanks again, Kate.  I almost hate to turn on the TV to hear what’s in store.
I used to think they slotted Detroit into these weekend matinee games b/c they were good and could draw a crowd.  Now the following is a little, well, how would you describe those who continue to watch a minor league team in a professional league?

We’ll see if I can last longer than 2 periods today.

Haven’t missed a game this year, not going to start now… though finding the energy to stay positive is getting more difficult by the day.

Interested to see what happens at the Deadline, and then who comes up to play after. Otherwise, srs bzns as usual.

Last year Howard used to hold off teams until the predictable 3rd period onslaught.  This year he’s kicked it up a notch for the whole game.

Nice elbow by Malkin on Lindstrom.

Man, Howard should have given Hornball a shot in the nuggets with his blocker.

Great pass by Bert with Fillapoola.
Then the inevitable turnover within 3 feet.

The last 46 goals against the Wings have come from a combined distance of 12 feet.

Looked like Abby took a shot to the head along the boards.  Looked like the ref was looking right at it.  Didn’t seem to matter.

That passive box is the worst PK formation. At least put a man in front of the net to clear that shit out.

Not just one unmarked guy in front, but two ! The team is reaching new heights of poor play.

But if they try something else the PK might drop from that coveted 26th best in the league position they’re in.

Was that the penguins using a net front presence on the power play? I thought the practice was dead?

It’s nice to know the expected NBC fellating of the Pens hasn’t disappointed.
