LOL, Avery. You want to fake being hurt, we'll make it hurt!


I was actually imagining his head falling right off his body and thalumping along the ice, his wide eyes staring, his lips mouthing, "WAH! WAH!"

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

whatsf****** awesome is pavel isnt even 100% yet and he kicked ass tonight

He is a purveyor of unreality. Watching him sort of hang back on the backcheck, then come out of nowhere to steal the puck, like he knew what was happening all along, like it was all planned out ahead of time... just blows my mind.

Good point! How could I forget?! :ph34r:

I'm going to have to not applaud Jimmy. Yeah, he made 45 saves, but I can't recall all that many that were all that amazing. There were a handful, but largely I thought the Wings did a good job making them take ineffective shots. Howard certainly didn't play bad, but this is sort of what we should be expecting from him all the time, more 2 goal games than 3. So I'm glad he didn't suck but I'm witholding hope until I see him string together a few good wins.


I feel the need to point out again that Howie always spoke highly of you, along with one other poster here.

Didn't see it, what happened to Fil?

:lol: I suppose I am becoming a bit of a basher, but he's just been so damn disappointing. I think other than Jason Williams, he's been the one Red Wing I can remember ever since I started watching them that I just don't have much faith in at all. Lebda was fun to make fun of, too, I guess, but I was on the Lebda>Lilja bus for a couple of seasons. Look, I can admit when Howard is good, which I think sets me apart from an actual "basher." If you look through my history, there have been plenty of "Howard is a god" type comments from me, but come on, two months of vastly sub-par performances is more than a slump.

However, I will be more than happy to lay off of him once he strings together...I don't know, four 2 goal or less games in a six game stretch, just to put out a random benchmark.

You have a good attitude, VM. :) I was just being my ol' smartass self. I often say the same things - maybe about different players, but yeah. ;)

I would have never guessed this combo would click so well, but s***, Babs this is IT.

When Healthy something like this would be awesome:

Huds-Dats-Cleary
Mule-Z-Homer
Flip-Modo-Bert
Eaves-Helm-Abs/Miller

I loved watching Cleary/Dats/Hulder. Any chance that line lasts once we are healthy? I guess once Modano gets back it wouldn't work, but I hope to see a bit more of it in the coming games.

Well, including tonight, he's let in two or less 3 of the past 4 games...so I guess just one more eh :sly:

There's always a fine line between healthy criticism and blind "fan" hatred. I was not initially a Howard fan, though he converted me last year and the first two months of this season, but even now with his disappointing play I hold out hope he can get it together. My Internet pride is not so great that I would hate to be proven wrong in doubting Howard.

Howard needs to think the defense for cleaning up a lot of the rebounds he let happen. Some plays he didn't even have the puck and had no idea where it was.

I was just watching the Red Wings TV bit they post on facebook after the game -- guy interviewing Pavs asks him how long he thinks it'll be before his game is back to where he wants it. In true Pav form, he answers "I think, uh, 2014," in the way that only Pavel could. :lol:

I hope they can stay together and be productive. That would allow Franzen and Bertuzzi to stay on Zetterberg's line and as we saw in the playoffs and in Ottawa we know that line can dominate. We'll have to watch this Datsyuk line and the Zetterberg/Bert/Franzen line play together long term to really know if they're good combos or just flashes in the pan.

But damn... if the top two lines are Hudler/Datsyuk/Cleary and Franzen/Zetterberg/Bertuzzi that leaves a mix of Filppula, Modano, Homer and Eaves to play the 3rd (assuming Homer can play the third, otherwise he'd move down to the 4th and play limited 5-on-5 time but extensive PP time). A 3rd line with Val, Modano and Eaves on it makes the team very balanced and formidable. Filppula's shown he can punish other third lines with his puck skills.
