  1. As a lad, my uncle Billy Bob used to tell me all sphincters heal in time. I think the only one that will end up in the rafters is Hank. Dats will be in the HOF, but not the roof. Federov's number would be nice to retire, but I just don't see him or Dats meeting the standard that's established there now with Yzerman and Lidstrom - skills, achievements, and leadership. I do think had Dats stayed out his contract, we might have a joint ceremony some day with both his and Hank's numbers going up. It would have been the perfect end to the twins (had someone played them together a bit more), but maybe I watch too many Spielberg movies.
  2. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    I can add nothing to this, except I might talk to my doctor about taking antidepressants for next season...
  3. Weird isn’t it. So depressing. I stopped by to see commentary on the game. Really, what is left to be said. Wonder if the Ilitches ever check this out. Used to have a post every ten seconds in the old days...
  4. Officially Eliminated

    Excellent point!
  5. Officially Eliminated

    I'm not arguing with your prediction, but how how how how how can this happen, especially Blashill? Can someone tell me another team in any pro sport that sticks with a loser like this?
  6. With this win it is obvious the process worked after all. This team DOES have pride after all gosh darn it. All my doubting and criticism of Blashill was wrong. He showed me.
  7. Has Blashill finally lost the team?

    In his first move as Seattle GM hockey genius Ken Holland has made a bold move by bringing Dan Clearly out of retirement to lead the new team. Meanwhile Holland responded coyly when asked if he had been persuing talks with Mikael Samuelsson who is rumored to be interested in becoming the new teams slap shot accuracy coach. Said Holland whistfully, “Nobody could put the puck dead on the goalies jersey like Sammy.”
  8. Has Blashill finally lost the team?

    Ok it seems they won’t fire Blashill until this cluster%[#^ of a season is over, but how about a compromise. Let him keep his job, but shut him the heck up. No more post game interviews with his empty, meaningless, pathetic babbling, tired cliches and excuses. You owe us that much Ilitch family!
  9. Has Blashill finally lost the team?

    I hear you. Amen. I used to have so much pride and excitement in this team. Whenever I met hockey fans from other cities they would always speak highly of the Wings (even if they hated losing to them). I remember a guy from NY and avid Rangers fan telling me watching the wings and their awesome puck control was like watching a hockey video game. How cool is that? How about a power play that was at one time an almost sure goal? Or marveling at Datsyuk and Zetterberg and how they were picked so late in the draft... Or LIdstrom... sigh. I'm sure I'm not alone in all this, but I really don't know how to handle the current situation. Maybe I need to check out the five stages of grief - denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance? I think I'm at depression, but won't hit acceptance until we fire Blashill and Holland.
  10. Has Blashill finally lost the team?

    I didn't want to start a new thread, and this one seemed most relevant. I'm trying to check myself here in terms of bias, but I can't understand why Blashill still has a job. Seven straight losses plus everything else. How long can this go? Ten, fifteen? I find it hard to believe any other team would not have canned him by now. He can't possibly be our coach next year, can he? As for why or why not to can him now, I can guess many of the excuses (for example who would replace him), but at this point his failure seems clear and there seems to be nothing to lose. It seems likely Holland doesnt even have a plan for this (and that is troubling), but bumping up an assistant coach for the interim seems like a valid option. On the positive side, imagine this happened and suddenly the team started playing better - even a little. I think that is a real possibility. Despite all our issues with players I believe this coach is a train wreck and the major factor in our poor play and record. He is a pus filled cyst that has to be popped. Drain the cyst now Kenny!
  11. I wish I had made my screen name pokeandhope... Getting depressed. Might need to call the doc for some kind of meds.
  12. Brenden Smith placed on waivers ON HIS BDAY. LOL

    In the morning On a Saturday
  13. Whoa, Ryan Gosling is Swedish!?!? Who says you can't learn anything of value on the web?
  14. Some good news for Holland haters

    I had my fair share of Holland frustration, but when faced with the reality of his leaving, I would be concerned that a replacement might not be an improvement. They would need to be really careful in who they hired. However, I have no such concerns about the coach!

    No way am I telling any of you my birthday.
