    Pens vs Flyers

    It was barely a crosscheck. more of a shove. I don't fault Crosby for falling down as he probably wasn't expecting it. Though it's telling that his first reaction is to look at the ref with a shocked look on his face instead of turning to look at the guy who shoved him.

    Tomas Holmstrom's fate

    Yes, of course bring him back ... and put him into the front office for a cushy job like Ozzie and Draper.

    Panthers aren't a bad team anymore. They are 3rd in the East. sure the Wings could have played better and won, but I wouldn't be underestimating a team like the Panthers who have proved themselves after soo many s***ty years.

    Playoff seeding & Divison winners

    Remove the automatic seeding of division winners. Period. Stupid rule. You can have your division winner banner all you want, but being the best team in the worst division shouldn't automatically give you home ice over a better team, no matter what the logic is.

    Operation Eaves

    I know there's been a lot of chatter here about how Eaves is doing. Since he won't be back the rest of the season some blogs/sites are having readers comment wishing him well and sending them to him. Winging It In Motown

    Probably payback for his stick-breaking slashes that kept occurring - unpenalized, to boot - throughout the entire game. Seriously looked like he was going to cry when he was getting up, was hilarious.

    4/1 GDT : Panthers 1 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

    Happy to get the 2nd point, but gotta ask why Nyquist isn't out there for 4 on 4 over Cleary.

    I wish everyone on that team had the guts/drive that Datsyuk does.

    i completely understand why i was less than thrilled to get quincy back. he's done nothing but go to the box since he's been here. now we get a 5 min PK. Good job. Dude sucks.

    Pens vs Flyers

    Great Sunday treat seeing a team of rookies run up the score on the Pens in their own barn. And the booing of Jagr? Seriously? I guess for a fanbase established in 2005 it's understandable.

    Tomas Holmstrom's fate

    I think polls like that are terrible. It's one thing to sit here and discuss it amongst ourselves, but to have a public poll asking if someone else should be forced out is insensitive. I realize he's a hockey player and he takes as much abuse as anyone in the rink, and then some, but the subject of outliving your usefulness is a touchy one. It is a call that should be decided between him, his team, his family, and the management, and then brought to the fans. Let him go out publicly with the honour and dignity he has earned, not with faceless people slamming the door behind him from their keyboards. I realize a lot of people who took part in that poll are too young to have faced the point in their life when they have to face up to the fact that they are no longer capable of carrying their weight, but trust me on this one, it is a huge blow to one's pride.

    Not tripping over their dicks, which they've done too much recently. 60 minutes of solid play, consistent effort, and high energy. If we manage to do that, I'm happy. How far doing that gets us this year is entirely dependent on how much they want to prove to the fans they're not a bunch of lazy, spoiled, entitled dopes. On one hand, I want us to win the Cup every year, however it's entirely unrealistic for that to happen, so I try to remember that as long as they play with heart, I'll be satisfied with our lot. If we lose in 7 games, at least we went down swinging. I can take comfort in the fact they didn't give up, while simultaneously being upset they didn't win.

    Samuelsson

    The Shinguard Assasin. I used to ride him all the time. But when he was at his most dreadful, and I was bagging on him mercilessly, that's when he was always come up HUGE. He did it in OT versus Chicago in the playoffs. He did it Game 1 2008 Finals versus the Pens. He was clutch, but he was Lang clutch. "Why the f*** is this bum on the team?...... ZOMG!!! THAT'S WHY!"

    I guess that makes sense, but with Cleary's bum knee, I dont feel very confident with him out there with that much open space

    I really like Nyquist tonight. He's playing like he's got a mancrush on Pavel and wants to be his linemate for eternity.

    Playoff seeding & Divison winners

    What if Detroit plays Dallas at some point later in the playoffs (not the first round), who will have home ice in that series? I believe it would be Dallas, but I'm not sure. If that's so, it would be ridiculous indeed. But this isn't just a hockey problem. In the NFL, you often have 8-8 teams winning a division and getting a home game over a team with 3 or 4 more wins. Likewise, some 10-6 teams winds up missing out on the playoffs altogether. Going back to the NHL, you sometimes have another issue, where the 8 seed in one Conference has a lot fewer points than the 9-11 seeds in the other Conference, who end up missing the playoffs altogether. That also seems unfair.

    I love Homer, and appreciate everything he has contributed to this organization, but I think he needs to hang 'em up after this season. Knowing how honorable this organization is, he'll likely get a job in the front office somewhere. He can definitely still contribute on the powerplay, but he is clearly a liability at even strength. I think we can do better via free agency, and get a grinder with some offensive skills for the 4th line.

    People v. NHL:

    The NHL has, for years, found ways to milk more money from the fans, when it comes to viewing games. They have said before that if you want to watch your local team, you should buy tickets. But, here's the dealio...I live in Saskatchewan, but grew up south of Windsor, so I've been a DRW fan for many years. A few weeks ago, Detroit played in Vancouver, and the game was on SNETP (Sportsnet Pacific, I would assume) on Shaw Direct. I get that channel...I checked. At game time, I sat down in front of the boob tube, after claiming it in the name of the Legion of the Winged Wheel. I was greeted not with a pre game warmup by the teams...no poor grammar usage from announcers...no big talk about Sidney Crosby, even though he had nothing to do with this game but without him it couldn't happen and the entire future of the NHL could be in jeopardy. I got nothing but a black screen with a message telling me that I was in a blackout area, and essentially, I should buy a ticket and get my lazy ass to Vancouver. I hope the NHL gets nailed to the wall. I hope they get exposed for bending the fans over with every chance they get. I hope Gary Bettman spontaneously combusts. I hope this leads to more access to watch hockey.
