Its been about 2 months since the Wings last took the ice and I am going through major withdrawal right now. I'm I the only one? How have you guys been dealing with the pains of the off-season?

Personally, I've been watching my daily regiment of Red Wings youtube videos and playing lots of street hockey, but other than that, I'm left to weep in a dark corner (just kidding.....but not really...)
Mixed feelings about this

Baseball, free agency watching, fantasy football preparation, and beautiful summer weather. Still can't wait for October though!

Sometimes watching Red Wings games again on Drumj's feed and looking for things that I hope to see from the Wings next year. Or looking for things that I hope to be better.

oo I didn't even think of this.

I've been playing street hockey when I can. Watching NHL Network, World Cup...

This is the time of the summer where sports get REEEAAALLY thin. Lets see we have... the ESPN Spelling Bee coming up... the Little League World Series.... NFL Pre-Season.... hmm

Youtube videos, keeping updated on Wings news via LGW/mlive, watching my Original Six Wings DVD, and reading several books about the Wings. It helps a little...

Count me in, but don't count me out,
You can't shut me up, you can't shut me down,
Fight through the hurt, Fight through the pain,
Without the ache there is no gain,
We live our lives for the love of the game

I do what the players probably do: forget about hockey for 2-3 months.

Seriously though, it's the summer! I swim, lay in the sun, drink beers on patios, read good books, BBQ, play beer league and shinny hockey when i can, and starting this week I'll be working out.

If you can't find anything to do this time of year other then skim NHL headlines, priorities need to be re-evaluated.

Poorly! :lol:

I'm desperate enough for sport to actually watch the CFL.

Drop-in, beer-leagues, and the stresses of application season have me quite dealt.

I deal with watching the Tigers and then being greatly disappointed by them just in time for the Wings to pick me up again.

I really got hit by the bug tonight... watching 2008 highlights. Been through the 97/98 runs too. I think I've been spoiled by the last few springs, usually two months after we finish we're in training camp and almost finalizing rosters. It's summer break so all I've really got to do is work day and night, watch some baseball and hope time flies quick enough to get back to school and hockey season. I've got a good feeling about this year right now :thumbup:

Been too busy to notice.

I've been working full time and studying for another state's bar exam. It's not good to be GMR right now. Or ever.

Whoa. I thought you said you'd rather die than go through that again. At least you finally got a job though.

Yeah, I know I said that. <_< I should have kept my mouth shut about that since I wished it on myself. I'm allowed to only go for one day, instead of two, so that should make it somewhat easier.

I've been unable to keep up with all the free agency and trades in the offseason so far.

I actually wish the Wings would win the Cup in early April; there's just way too much stuff to do in the summertime. Our TV is rarely on this time of year.

This is probably an hours ride from my garage.
