Not the case as far as I remember, he was actually quoted as saying he'd take less to stay here. Wings management decided it was Howard's turn which was the main reason for not re-signing Conks.

This was the case.

I like Conks too.


GO WINGS!!!!!

I want St. Louis to bring their A game. I know that sounds weird, but getting close to playoffs I want the Wings to get familiar with battling. Games in the playoffs aren't about one team blowing out the other, it's about grinding out close wins against another team that wants to win just as bad as you.

I predict the Wings to win, but I don't want crappy St. Louis play to take away from the victory.

You're right, it should. But will it?

They WILL win tonight!

I'll be late watching this one, but hoping that when I tune in we'll already have the lead. :)

It was also largely due to the fact that we had run out of options with Howard. We couldn't keep him GR anymore and didn't want to waste him on free agency or waivers. They pretty much had no choice but to go with Ozzie/Howie last year. At that point in time a lot of us here (me included) were bummed and skeptical about Howie as the backup, but proved a lot of us wrong by winning the starting job last year and having a great season.

Conks was a good backup, but I can't say I miss him terribly in the great scheme of things.

Ah, ok. Guess I must have heard wrong somewhere then but with the way JMac has been playing it isn't that big of a deal though.

Game on! The clock is ticking, and as of now we are keeping score.

And already to the pk we go...

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Okay. The puck was dropped and Franzén got a penalty.
