    WOW Cable Customers: Versus Not in HD

    I'm a Kansas Citian. I've had ComCast for years. I definitely recommend AT&T UVerse. We just switched, it saves about $150 a month, and we have Vs in HD (though we did with ComCast, as well).

    So what did Sidney Crosby really say to Zetterberg?

    Hank: Yo, paisan. Can I talk to you for a sec? Your tailor... is a very bad man! Sidney: Frankie? What are you talking about? Chelios: [Chelios enters and touches Hank on the shoulder, who flinches] Chelios: Hey, what's going on? Hank: Sydney's tailor... took advantage of me. Chelios: What? Sydney: No way. I've been going to the guy for 12 years. Hank: Oh, come on. He said he was going to do my inseam, and then he ran his hand up my leg, and then there was definite... cupping. Sydney: That's how they do pants! First they go up one side, they move it over, then they go up the other side, they move it back, and then they do the rear. Sydney: [Hank and Chelios stare at him] Sydney: What? Cheli, would you tell him? Isn't that how a tailor measure pants? Chelios: Yes. Yes, it is... In prison! What's the matter with you?

    Man the Pens board is just as bad as their coach...

    Yeah, that's why I made sure to specify I was talking about the Pens fans on that board.

    Man the Pens board is just as bad as their coach...

    I'm from KC, so last year I spent quite a bit of time lurking on their board, trying to get the latest info on their arena situation, hoping for the best. I think I maybe posted once or twice. Anyhow, my experience is that they are some utterly classless folks over there. They weren't toward me, because I knew not to step in s*** while I was there, being a fan from a town that wanted an NHL team. But I came away with a new disrespect for the Pens fans on that board.

    Nick name for Abdelkader

    I've been calling him Chuck. But he doesn't seem to answer to it, so we may need to rethink that one.

    Holmstrom back Sunday; Helm re-called

    But is he going to give 200% 110% of the time? because if he gives 200% 50% of the time, I guarantee you 100%, we'll only win 80% of our games. If he gives 100% 70% of the time...then we'd be in a heap of trouble...

    Lang Goal?

    So, you have to ask yourself if that Lang goal is going to be this year's version of the Lidstrom goal against Vancouver in '02.

    Shark Thrown on Ice

    I didn't catch that. I'd love to see a pic or video of it.

    Lang Goal?

    Obviously, in hindsight, if this goal leads to a series and ultimately a Cup win, it will have its own special place. But in the present, it's an interesting parallel to think about. We obviously won't know for days or even weeks if it is or not. But it's a fun conversation to have, IMO.

    Lang Goal?

    That's what I mean... thanks for helping to clarify. I also think the argument could be made that Homer's goal could be viewed as such, considering how the Wings came out in the third period with what seemed some new enthusiasm. That arument is weaker, though, as they leveled off soon after.

    Non-Michigan fans: How did you become a Wings fan?

    Living in Kansas City, there hasn't been much during my lifetime in the way of hockey. We had a decent minor league team through the 90s, and that was great... but otherwise there wasn't the youth leagues, etc. So in the mid 90s, when I decided to give hockey a chance, and watch some of those late night replays on ESPN on Friday nights, it seemed like the Wings were on quite a bit. It was as they were building toward their Cups. I was interested in the all-Russian line, I liked Fedorov, I really liked some of the grinders... and I just sorta started liking them because I ended up seeing them more that most teams. I catch crap because we are in the same state as the Blues, but they are 3 hours away... I don't owe them any loyalty. Besides, over the past 13 years, I think my fondness for the Wings has helped me through years of loving the Royals and Chiefs...

    My message to Pavel......

    To whom it may concern, Mr Datsyuk, Mr Zetterberg, Mr Homstrom, and all those I may have missed, Skate with the wind at your back, pass the puck tape to tape as if you lives depend on it. Allow Mr Bertuzzi to have his time away to heal, without hurting the team. Enjoy the moments after the score, for that sweetness can be incentive for another experience rivaling it. Take the lead early, and then step on the necks of the Flames. A close game,a t this point, can only serve to unnerve a team with a fragile playoff ego, as this team must posess. Mr referee, Call a fair game. If you choose to let chippiness go, let it go both ways. If you choose to call it tight, call it tight both ways. Consistency is key.

    Bertuzzi likely out for Game 1

    However, the difference in a few days isn't going to make that danger any more or less.

    Who's on your Red Wings Jersey?

    I've got my name and number (75) on my jersey. I will always be a Wings fan, while some players (obviously not all) will move from team to team, etc.

    NHL Center Ice package available online

    In Kansas CIty they are still sticking to the $120. My wife called last week and they told her that. I have a severe case of bronchitis, and no voice, or I'd have gotten on the phone and berated them... $120 for a month of games?

    Pens are staying in Pittsburgh

    Being in Kansas City, I was quietly hoping they would come here. Why wouldn't I? I felt bad it would come at the expense of a town like Pittsburgh, but in the end it worked out for them. AEG is strongly looking at Nashville, and from an article in the KC Star a couple of weeks ago, has always felt the strongest about our chances for getting them to move. But I'll be honest... I'll take any team to have local hockey. Not having to relay on Versus or buying Centre Ice would be great.

    Pugilist Corner

    I've always loved Laroque. It's amazing how nonchalant that goes. Just another part of the game to these guys. It's weird how they can be so calm about the decision, but yet so violent once it starts.
