    Andersson breaks foot - down another center

    Are other teams have this many glass players? It is beyond laughable how many injuries there are this year. I was hopeful after Friday's Devils game that the kids could take over for the vets, but that Rangers game was abysmal. I hope NY's defense just had the game of their careers and it wasn't just that the Wings' offense was that weak (even Tatar, who is usually Datsyukian, was shut down the whole night). I really hope Emmerton's stay is short lived, I'd rather see Glendening.

    1/26 GDT: Panthers 5 @ Red Wings 4 (SO)

    When they announced the lineup I was like, "This is a turning point! Sammy unfortunately cleared waivers, but Babcock finally got the lineup right. Today is going to be a great day!" At the start of the first it was a lot variations of this, "f*** BABCOCK, f*** CLEARY, f*** EVERYONE. GOOD JOB CLEARY! WAY TO BE OUT OF POSITION! Why is Franzen playing center?! etc, etc, etc." It infuriates me to no end that Cleary is playing. I'd rather see them play shorthanded. It wasn't supposed to be like's wasn't supposed to be like this

    Building a talent pipeline.

    Great analogy. I think this is a very accurate assessment of how Holland has approached signing in the last few years. To take is a step further, he won't let go of his new toys, because the last one he gave away (Hossa) ended up being the coolest toy on the block, while he was stuck holding a toy that was constantly breaking (Franzen). Additionally, he has an extremely restrictive sense of nostalgia. He knows some of the toys are beyond repair (Cleary), but he can't bring himself to give it away because they remind him of better days; even though letting go would ultimately make him happy. Lastly, there are toys that he over payed for and refuses to acknowledge was a bad decision (Quincey). I think what makes the analogy so apt is that it brings to mind how childish Holland is being. He needs to make difficult decisions, but is acting like a scared, selfish child.

    Cleary should be suspended for elbow to head

    It is not looking likely.

    Cleary should be suspended for elbow to head

    Definitely what the league is trying to prevent. No reason for Cleary to make that dangerous cheap shot. It was clearly done out of frustration and was not accidental. As far as the losing another person on the roster, are we losing anyone? Cleary is obviously the weakest forward (and second weakest player overall to Quincey). I can't wait for another Griffin to show up Cleary and the mistake that was his resigning. ...I'll go back to the Dan Cleary hate zone thread now.

    WinterFest/ Winter classic Final thoughts

    I would think there would be a ton of great high resolution pictures, but surprisingly they are hard to find. These aren't up to my standard for wallpaper, but I love the colors in these photos. Here is a picture I took from my seat. Not bad for a cell phone.

    Weird things you see at hockey games

    It's a reoccurring phenomenon
  14. Selling physical tickets to the Winter Classic game at Michigan Stadium: 4 tickets, Section 16, Row 88 (Red Wings side, corner). Tickets will include FREE tickets to Saturday's Great Lakes Invitational games at Comerica Park. Good for both the 3:30 consolation game and 7:00 Championship game. Price is negotiable. Face-value is $129 per ticket. Looking for $80 each or best offer. I can mail priority or we can meet up. I live in Oakland County, but I'll be in Ann Arbor for New Year's Eve.
