It’s Almost Over

There are two good things about this season of Red Wings hockey. One, it's almost over. Two, we get to watch some of the youngsters play. There is/was great anticipation regarding Joe Veleno. How would he look, how would he fit in out there? Is he ready to be a part of the big club? One game in and with limited ice time to assess him, I'd say he did well. Hopefully we'll get a better look tonight.

The younger D-men, Lindstrom, and, Cholowski are out there getting a look over. We also have Vrana, Zadina, Rasmussen, and Svechnikov. I'm including them, because for all intents and purposes, those are young players that should be the positives to help keep us watching the five remaining games IMHO.

Hola, and Evenin’, Bitches !

Thanks for the lead in, Kate, and they may add Seider and the other guy who had a good year in Sweden.  He still has another year of Franz Nielsen, but slowly should be weeding out the older players.

If I read the schedule correctly, the Wings have all week Monday - Friday off, then finish the season over the weekend.  Then , to accomodate Vancouver, the season continues another 10 days or so.

Howdy 19. Good to be here with my 19 fake friends for one of the last games of the season. This should be like the exhibition games with the younger guys fighting for a piece of the pie. Looks like Brome is not part of the plan. Kinda shame.

They are too busy. There is a whole script they have to follow to get all the ads in and announcements etc. One of my best friends used to be the Griffins PA guy about 10 years ago. He also did the Battle Cats and WMU football for a couple years. I helped him with the Battle Cats and was a spotter at the WMU games. All kinds of stuff to keep track off and check off on the list.

Yep sure did. I was watching the first period of the Griffins game and read it on my phone so it’s small screen.

On the computer now with the bigger screen. watching the Wings.

MoFo.  Wings make mistakes and turnovers.  Bernier even stopped the first slam from 12 inches but needed help.

Oh cool.  I lived in Augusta GA several different times and know a little of Columbia.  If you don’t mind a bit, or more, of humidity for a couple of months the weather is pretty nice.
