While we’re kicking tires? Let’s kick the dive while they’re down

I've been forwarded to Rhode Island for the next two weeks.  That means I'll be a little scarce.  I'll be checking in from time to time to read HockeyinDB's daily life lessons, but thumbing the phone gets old. 

If our man on the scene, Tick Tock, goes all nutso and actually trades someone for someone else? I'll probably write about it or something.   If no deals, I'll be "studying".

The worst team in hockey is visiting the Joe and this is a live blog, bitches.

Trading Flip to Dallas for a first rounder (perhaps more depending on how DAL finishes) would work. They have 4 games against the ducks and hawks and another three agains the kings and nucks. No way they make the playoffs. Draft lottery here we come. Pick a bubble team who thinks they’re going to make the playoffs, but you think will miss. Make the deal. Cpondition the pick; team makes playoffs, they kick in a second rounder too, or something to that affect.

This kind of thinking I am on board with.

Kicking something in some style would be good.

I think it’s more likely Cocoa does that than Kindl…

What’s the over/under on how long before Cola leaves the ice again and Tic Tock looking like a furling idiot for Send Slasher back down?

If he survives this game, I’ll consider that a winning “deadline deal.”

You mean Lashoff?  That was just a temporary roster limit move.  Why they just didn’t leave Coco puffs on IR, that I can’t say.  Maybe it’s against the rules once he’s medically cleared.

Wow, FSD had no alternate plans for the Wings game if Tigers game went long, and it is. Top of the 9th just starting, Tigers up 4-2. Pistons on FSD+.

Blacked out here in Detroit area.  The reason you probably cant’ find a Detroit feed is the Tigers game is still going on, switching to Wings when over.

Maybe when Tick Tock Finally retires or whatever happens with him we will finally have someone that has the balls to make a trade. I know that loyalty is important.. But settling for average just isn’t kosher. Period.

Speaking of, when does Jim Nill get his turn?  Is it on a schedule?

What he’s saying is there is no Detroit feed until the Tigers game is over.

I understand you are out of market, but the reason there is not a Detroit feed is the Tigers game is going long. FSD has yet to start the broadcast of the Wings game so there is no feed yet.
