Something To Talk About

Looks like the Wings have been somewhat busy in regards to the Yzerplan. So far, the big news is the big Frenchman(Mantha)has been traded to the Capitals, for what looks to be a good return. Also, the busy GM has a fist full of lottery tickets now. Imma hoping there a few are winners among them.

This should be an interesting night with something to talk about during tonight's game. Who said, "trades are hard"?

Hola and thank you Kate. Glad that both Glenny and Bernier were retained. For probably the first time this season I’m excited for the Wings. The future looks so bright I gotta wear shades. L.G.R.W.

Only for 13 more games. No guarantee they re-sign. If Yzerman plans on re-signing them I am ok with Bernier but would like to move on from Glendening. The fact he wasn’t moved means teams weren’t offering much.


The thing that got to me today was on Bleacher report that had an article that listed who was likely to be taken in the expansion draft. For the Wings it was Erne.

Why wouldn’t they select him? He’s young (25), cheap and plays a very solid game.

Exactly but he is a player I’d like to keep. I like erne over Helm and Glendening - he has hands

I hear ya and agree. But if he’s exposed he’s probably gone unless Stevie could offer a draft pick to Seattle to not select him.

Don’t let me bother you Cal I’m just grouchy they didn’t get picks for Helm and Glendening.

Howdy 19. So we’re Mantha less now. Time to move on with players who want to play here according to the Yzerplan.
Glad to keep Luke and hopefully he’ll take a small raise to stay here. Just surprised that Stall wasn’t dealt.
In Stevie we trust. Now just get spuddy before the Kracken do.

Hi everyone. Not really shocked about Mantha as there was rumors about him being traded during the last few weeks. Apparently Yzerman had seen enough. gulp

Happened upon the Hurricanes broadcast. Jordan Staal’s 1000th game.

They told a story about Staal accidentally spitting on Crosby’s stick, then Crosby getting a hatty that night. Puke

Yzerman may opt to clean house, but on the flip side, he seems to enjoy working with Blashill, and Blashill’s salary $1.6 million is all the more reasonable

Prepare yourself, Kate.

They’re not likely to be any good next year either, but at some time these young players from this year and the couple they’ll add on the roster next year, like Seider, don’t need to drown in a stinking miasma of incompetence and defeat.

Did I forget to say that Glendening will have a hat trick tonight since i said I was disappointed he wasn’t traded?

LOL.  At least four boys normally wouldn’t have taken up so much time in the bathroom as four girls.  That is, until they discovered girls.

Miasma is what the Greeks called bad air which caused sickness. Hence Kate’s suffering. That’s why she has the patience here with this team. She’s a saint.  smile

a stinking miasma

I have always remembered that phrase, of all the actual useful phrases I should have remembered, from an article in the National Lampoon many decades ago.  It was last century, even.
