    It depends on how serious your relationship is. Have you met her parents? I'm one of those old fuddy-duddys who think that octi should be reserved for the playoffs, but since this is as close as Dallas will get this year, it's kind of you to give them at least a taste of the playoff experience. If you're really nervous about getting caught- wear a Stars jersey (get a cheap one at a thrift store) over a Wings t-shirt. If the jersey is white and the t-shirt red, you might need a white t-shirt over the red one to camo the red. Then once you get inside, give the Stars jersey to an underprivileged child (one whose parents haven't raised them as a Wings fan), ditch the white t-shirt (they're cheap at thrift stores) and wander about proudly wearing the Wings colours. Or spend the game in a Stars jersey and when security asks who threw the octo, just shrug and ask them to explain icing.

    Should I take an octopus to Dallas?

    Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

    I was thinking about taking one to get things amped up for the boys. However, being an away arena, I'm fairly certain I'll get arrested or at least kicked out, so I would have to throw it towards the end of the game, hopefully when they are winning. Although, I'd really love to throw it out early and give them some spark. What do you think? How the hell do I get it in?

    Franzen's a Bargain

    I asked this before in a Franzen thread: Those of you who think playing like a 4 mil a year player is ok now because it is his cap hit, while he is actually getting paid 5.25 mil this year, will you still expect him to play like a 4 mil player at age 40? If not, then please stop saying he is a bargain at 4 mil a year. That is his cap hit, not what he is being paid nor what we should expect from him. He has said it, his coach has said, he lacks motivation a lot of times. I am not surprised he is playing very well right now, the Wings have been in playoff mode for weeks, roughly the length of his streak. And the Franzen apologists will come out and say if we put the last few weeks of this season, and the last month or so of season X you will see he is a monster. WRONG! i will see that he is a floater and plays when and where he wants because you had to pick and choose segments of his seasons. His defensive play as of late is all I need to see to know that he spent the better part of this season disinterested, he is now playing D up and down the ice, 3 weeks ago he wasn't defending anything. When Franzen puts an effort in for a full season, not a couple of months here and a couple of months there, I will back off of him. But he only plays in Mule mode when he thinks it best, I like that about as much as I like diving! He scores around 28 goals a season, however most of that is done in about 2 months worth of effort and work, if he worked as hard the rest of the season as he is working right now he would be in talks for the Art Ross. Instead he is Floater of the Year! That is the sickening part, he could be a top flight player in this league. Instead he plays when he wants, at least the last guy that played like this in the Winged Wheel was quite possibly the best defensive forward to ever play the game.

    Should I take an octopus to Dallas?

    The question really is why is this even a question? You put it in a plastic bag and tape it to your leg. Don't forget to boil it first. Throw it at a time where you feel you've gotten your money's worth at the game because it's a given you'll be escorted out.

    Should I take an octopus to Dallas?

    I think IF the worst case scenario happens and I got booked on it, I think I could beat the charge due to the precedence and acceptableness of hat trick hats. In a court of law it would be hard to explain why that is acceptable and the octopus is not. I also think it's completely hypocritical of the NHL to say we can't do this yet they continue to use footage of Al swinging the octopi in their 'Because it's the Cup' commercials.

    I opened this thread not knowing what I would find. What I found is that I am deeply in love with each and every one of you! I am of the mind that you find a good throwing spot away from your seat, THROW THAT f*****, then run like hell to the concourse and get lost in the crowd. Wait a few minutes, then casually return to your seat with a beer and a pretzel. Enjoy the rest of the game!

    Textbook right there. Love it. Boil, bag it, tape it, throw it. Don't be a dummy though and throw it interrupting the play or at a horrible time. Make sure to throw it in an area that won't screw up the ice too much (boiling will avoid this also). Good luck and get the boys motivated!!!

    One more tip just in case you're paranoid about the smell (although boiling should take care of it) - if it looks like security is patting people down too much, sidle up to a very old deaf lady (the kind that talk REALLY LOUDLY), help her gently through security, and mumble quietly (so she won't hear you), "Grandma, I smell something funny. You did bring extra depends, didn't you?" Smile at her, and she'll smile back with no idea what you said, the security guy will rush her through and let you go with her, and the smell will be unquestioned.

    Franzen's a Bargain

    Franzen continues to be the most undeserved whipping boy ever. He's only led the team in goals every single year since he's had his contract.... and he is making UNDER FOUR MILLION DOLLARS. I love it when people can tell how much "effort" someone is putting in. Even when he is outscoring, outhitting, and outplaying almost everyone else on the team, it is still Franzen who gets constantly criticized, even over the players who are making more money than him. Franzen's been one of the hardest working players on the team all year.

    Whats most frustrating is that if we just would have gotten 15 more games this year of 'present day mule' we are sitting in 3rd or 4th right now.

    I'll second that. However the Wild are playing with confidence right now and with games vs the Oil and Avs. I just don't see them losing both games but stranger things have happened. Nothing would thrill me more than to see the Wild miss the playoffs.

    Congrats to sputman for finishing grad school. Congrats to the Wings for a great win. Congrats to Fil for his 100th goal. The Big Red Machine is starting to click. Keep this momentum going into the finale. Win it so everything else is irrelevant. (though tbh part of me would love to see Min drop their final 2 games and Col take the 8 spot behind the Wings. I think they'd give the Hawks a decent run if Bobrovsky stays hot.

    Cleary is getting the puck in the zone and moving it to his teammates. He's been accomplishing this role for the past couple games. Any love for the most-hated man on these forums?

    He's probably got so much gas he can't even slow down. It's probably firing him around the ice.
