The TRAP!

Well, well, well. The Wings are coming into tonight's game riding high after winning their last four games. It's safe to say confidence is high among the players. For now. Wings fans everywhere have been pleasantly surprised by their play, their confidence, the honest effort, exciting hockey, and more recently, the winning.

This is not the time for the Wings to get too cocky or over confident. They face off tonight against an Islanders team that due to circumstances beyond their control, are currently in a slump. Remember,  Barry Trotz is their coach, which makes them dangerous, and, a very formidable opponent.

We all know that this is the perfect set up for what the 19 have come to refer to as the TRAP. In the past, a typical TRAP game happens when any team, no matter how bad, seems to make good when facing the Wings. They can't let that happen anymore. This is a new era. The Yzerman/Yzerplan Era. It's high time to reverse the trends of the past, and, continue to move forward. 

It's a Live Blog!

I was really commenting on how long its been since I’ve been on a live blog.  My last log in must have been back in 1971 or something.

We’re all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny *#$%@& Kaye.
