    We need at least one Russian on the team.  The Red Wings haven't won a Cup without a Russian player since 1955.

    The anti vaxxers are the masters of anecdotal evidence. There was a woman who died after her 2nd dose of the vaccine and they immediately jumped on it as proof that the vaccine was worse than the disease.
    Turns out she overdosed on Tylenol to treat the side effects of the vaccine which led to liver failure and then renal failure and then death. 
    But they refuse to accept that and claim its a "coverup". Like the US Government is even capable of maintaining such a conspiracy.

    Remember how much heat we took for noticing Zadina sucks and being honest enough to say it?
    It's almost like we knew what we were talking about.

    I have:
    Datsyuk from the first WC
    Zetterberg from the 2nd WC
    2 Larkin, one for me and one for R2
    I'm trying to decide between Seider and Raymond next, they both keep going back and forth as my favorite rookie.

    I buy variants pretty regularly. I have around 25 or so Wings jerseys. Most are blanks, but I do have Yzerman, Lidstrom, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Howard, Bernier, Larkin, and maybe a Fedorov.

    I hate Biden. I don't trust Big Pharma. The left is fear mongering and has taken vaccination way overboard. The right has become wacko conspiracy theorists who care more about personal freedom than public health.
    I believe in the concept of immunization thru vaccination. It has nothing to do with politics for me.

    People seem to have Zadina on their 2nd or 3rd line for next season....
    I'm a well known Zadina realist (aka Zadina hater by the slappies) but I truly believe he'll be delt at the draft possibly with our 1st and other pieces for a 1A/B center to compliment Larkin.
    It's time to sell on Zadina before his change of scenery (reclamation project) value completely evaporates.

    Id still love a Konstantinov jersey!  I started off with my first jersey when I was 10, Im from Leaf Nation (less then an hour outside Toronto) and my dad was slightly pissed I jumped ship to the Wings-but he got my Yzerman jersey for christmas none the less.
     
    #1: Yzerman- this man made me a wings fan
    #2: Fedorov- these guys were my one two for many many years
    #3: Zetterberg- I picked this up after his first playoff appearance.  Clearly this kid had that little something extra.
     
    I still reallllly want a Datsyuk 2014 winter classic jersey, and am thinking of pulling the trigger on a Seider & Ned duo too.  Love these guys

    Everything the authorities say or do is political. Sadly.
    The right are idealogically averse to restrictions and mandates so naturally they protest the loudest when they see they aren’t justified.

    Lindstrom is not spectacular, but solid. A quality 3rd pairing dman, and a right handed shot. 
    Having seen him at camp, he is just one of those who doesn't really stand out, but in a good way. He isnt throwing big hits, or putting up a lot of points, but he isn't making big mistakes. He is just there, doing his job.

    Matt Savoie is an interesting one. He's ranked as high as #2 and as low as #7. Plays center and shoots right.
    Yzerman has never shied away from small forwards before. If he drops into our range I could see him being our choice.
    His older brother Carter Savoie was drafted by the Oilers and is playing at the U of Denver with Buium, Mazur, and Tuomisto. He's the leading scorer there and I believe just made the Canada WJC roster. Maybe we can send Leddy to Edmonton in exchange for Carter?

    On the gulf coast I can walk to the docks and buy fresh caught shrimp and other stuff for ridiculously cheap straight from the fishing boats. Probably best tasting I've ever had to. Most comes from off the coast of Texas.
    What're you doing wrong?

    Ever try Vitamin D3?
    Back when ER docs could write scripts for us hospital employees I'd get a script for Flonase (seasonal allergies May thru October - sinus and ear infections). Then Doc Flip gave me some advice on trying Vitamin D3 - that was nearly 10 years ago - for me I take 10,000 iu daily and never looked back...No more seasonal allergies and no more sinus/ear infections.
    Give it a go.

    Isn’t this the perfect time to bring him up? He’s confident right now and you tell him there’s no pressure and that the plan is to only have him up for the games that Fabbri lose. Take it as an opportunity to get a taste.
    No risk of him losing that confidence when going back down is just according to plan.
