(What phrase or eulogy would you put on a Wing's tombstone?)

I thought of this thread listening to Ken Daniels say the ubiquitous, "Datsyuk - still has the puck." Nobody can seem to take it off of him, why should the other side be any different.

Anyway, what are your suggestions for any Wing, past or present? Think funny or poignant.


EDIT: Sorry to the magical thinkers here that consider this thread bad mojo.

No, you know what we are, we're good. You can't do what we do every single day and not be good." - Mike Babcock

lidstrom: "here lies... wait. no. he's still out there. perfect humans don't die."

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Classy start. I've always said we need a little more Keats around here. (Starting now)

Well this is sadistic.

"He was a Red Wing."
Q: Of all the individual trophies you have not won, which one would you most like to win?
Datsyuk: I have so many of them that I haven't won. I think I would most like to win a trophy to the best goaltending duo.

No he would get a proper burial but instead of a tombstone, it would be marked with a pylon of course.

Not a Wing, but I can't resist:

Here lies Peter Fors... oh, my bad.
Here lies Peter Fo...not yet?
Here lies Peter Forsbe... oh, wait.
Haven't we done this before?
Ok, now. Here lies Peter... hang on.
Ok, for real this time.
Here lies Peter Fors...
SEL does not count, Peter. What? Oh.
That was quick. For sure this time?
Here lies Peter Forsberg. Finally.

Money on the board:  Current total: $8

$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)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James
