It's funny, if you go to letsgopens.com they complain most of their gameday thread about the Wings getting favorable calls and they cry about how the broadcasters drool over the Wings. How can they be that blind? I missed a portion of the first period and the SECOND I turned the TV on, they had a close up of Crosby. I get so tired of seeing him, especially considering he probably isn't even the best player on that team.



I guess they missed the second intermission where they had a presentation on Sidney Crosby.

Quotes from the announcers:

"He is called the second best player in the league, but I think in everyone's hearts, they know he is the best player in the league."

"There's no one really above Crosby, so he has no one to learn from."


I almost died laughing.

How would Pittsburgh ever of even signed Hossa? Crosby at 8.7, Malkin 8.7, Hossa 7.4?, and Fleury at 5, Gonchar at 5. Not to mention Staal, who they wouldn't of let go at 4, and the host of other secondary guys making around 3 million. They could've never afforded him, unless they traded away all their D guys.

Pittsburgh right now is right up against the cap, with Malkin's salary going up 5 million, and Staal's going up 2 million. They basically need to strip away 7 million worth of cap space. How do they expect to sign Sykora, Fedetanko, and Satan?

The Penguins are in a world of cap trouble. Their history is starting to look a lot like Ottawa's. They make it to the cup final, next season they barely make the play-offs, and next season their going to be screwed. Too much focus on expensive forwards, not enough on D. Penguins are going to be a laughing stock for the foreseeable future.

there's no team to have rivalry with Wings as of now.


Um for real? Chicago.They may not be a powerhouse.....Yet but it's an original 6 team and for the most part, when they play us, the standings dont matter. It is still a rivalry. Not llike the colorodo/detroit rivalry a few years back but it's still a rivalry that will probably never die.

We watched this game from a motel room in Chicago. We were here because of a memorial service for my brother. Most importantly, the service went very well and the church was jammed with people who loved him. It's been a real rough week for our family, but you know what? MY WINGS WON SOOOO WELL YESTERDAY AND TODAY and I am so grateful to them for literally helping me through this weekend. I know that probably means my priorities are really misguided but honestly, I don't care.

I am so damn grateful to be a Red Wings' fan. They are the class act of the athletic world and even though they'll never know it they added hugely to my well-being this weekend by their drive, their heart and their skill.

THANKS, my beloved Red Wings.

So sorry for the loss of your brother, Vladifan. I am sure the Wings would be very pleased to know that they helped you cope, in some small way. They do have big hearts and they DO represent the best of the best in hockey and all professional sports, IMO.

Believe it or not, I've gotten through some rough patches myself, with hockey players I loved coming up big for me, seemingly like they "knew" I needed it. It's not misguided to look for positives and feel good about seeing the guys you admire do well for you.

All the best to you and your family, and much sympathy for your loss. wub.gif

yowza.gif Thats why he got schooled in the SCF from Zata! If I had to pick a player to build my team around and my only two choices where Zata and Cindy, I would take Zata hands down. he may not put up the points Cindy does but.......He is a comeplete player(offense/defense)

( Ovie is twice the player Cindy is. He hits, fights and scores badass goals. Ovie or Z should be the face of the NHL not that punk ass!)

Hey you wont hear me saying your priorities are messed up, what ever it takes for you to cope with things! Im just glad that you were able to watch good hockey played by the Wings! I also would like to pass on my condolences and hope you and yours are getting by ok...


Don't know if it was talked about but did anyone else catch the closeup in the 3rd of Crosby right after him and Sammy got tangled up again, and Cindy mouthed ..."*****" in Sammys direction? I laughed pretty hard at that, figuring that was the pot calling the kettle black there...

Vladfan, my heart goes out to you for your loss. It is never an easy thing to deal with, but you have a lot of family there with you to help, and your online brothers and sisters as well. Hang in there, kid...it's never easy, but love and faith do help.

Is that what that is? Here I thought the neighbours were castrating their chihuahua.

You know, guys, lost amongst the Crosby love-fest, they really did have a lot of nice things to say about the Wings organization. They didn't rave about our players (which they should have), but they did say some very nice things about the Illitches and how players really want to play for Detroit.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Lost in all this consternation about Crosby and perceived media slights is the fact that the Wings played a damn good hockey game and won. I can't be the only one that tunes out announcers and uses their drone simply to prevent the game from becoming an uncomfortable silence, as opposed to listening intently to make mental notes for every time the other teams' stars are mentioned. If you've heard the tired cliches and boring anecdotes once, you've heard them a thousand times.

That's what Crosby's whining voice reminds me of!
