Secret of Detroit’s Success

There is nothing but hard science behind this latest innovation in pre-game workouts, as developed by coach Mike Babcock.  On this top-secret footage, you can see his Detroit Red Wings as they prepare for their match against Vancouver on Sunday.  Impressive stuff.

Also very gratifying to see The Dominator’s hip is looking so much better.


Now, another thing… 

Matt Ellis’ goal against Vancouver last Wednesday didn’t get contested by anyone on the ice, I don’t think.  But on Coach’s Corner Saturday night, Don Cherry presented an angle that made for a good argument that Luongo may have been interfered with via Tomas Kopecky’s stick.

Fast forward to about 3:40 into this video—the first angle looks pretty much like Luongo is taken out by his own teammate pushing a guy into him, but the second angle makes a good case for Kopecky being the guilty party.


That was a one goal game, if you recall.  So people can disagree all they want, but it’s been my personal experience that there’s always an upside in assuming the worst about Detroit.

Those Red Wings… just a dark force made up of lying, cheating, blackened souls…
