That's great, you're arrogant because you don't get upset over a game played by children. Then why are you here? You don't care that this team's window is clearly shut? You don't want them to get better? The great teams of the 90s are almost 20 years ago.

As for the rest of it, it's just basic hockey. The power play for Trashville has been horrible, but the Wings haven't gotten any momentum from it. Nashville, OTOH, gets energy from every single turnover and shot that goes 5 feet wide of the net. Watch the frikin game.


I'm happy when we win, but that doesn't mean I need to throw a temper tantrum when we don't. Then again I'm not the type of guy to freak out about things that don't have any real affect on the quality of my life whatsoever.

Anyway, enjoy the beers you're obviously drinking and please don't beat anyone up tonight if the Wings lose. Just breath deep and remember that a bad powerplay isn't an excuse for being a bad spouse or parent.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."

Is it an omen of good things to come that the DJ for the prom being held in the courtyard at my hotel just outaide my window is CRANKING Don't Stop Believing right now?


Let's Go Wings!


I would hope so. Unfortunately, it's probably more telling of a horribly generic prom though.

The biggest question is....will we survive the five inopportune penalties that will be called on us this next period. After all, the Gary Bettman show must go on.

Gustav better be with Datsyuk in the third. Guy is trying to do it all by himself, cause he has no one to dump it to. Lol


YES PLEASE Babcock shuffle up the dang lines!

Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Nyquist should be on the same line.

This could be our last period of the season. May as well load up on firepower right now instead of these same old lines.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I sure as hell hope so

c'mon boys! bring it in the 3rd and then bring it back to the Joe


I'll say this... A Wings win tonight that sparks a series comeback combined with my student getting first place in the state on his voice part would make this the best All-State Conference/Festival in my career.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

I agree. I don't mind him doing that he's showing confidence and poise with the puck. Looks electric out there. Like I said earlier if he's not with Pavs then babs is clueless.

Gus is back on 3rd line again, is Babs just a random function, panicking, or just not very smart?Also, sorry for a question which might seem a bit phylosophical: are Wings still playing puck posession? Pav is lost in this chaos, no passing, no support, noone open.
Hank is a beast though, 2nd line is breaking through, there is still hope!

I haven't had a beer in nearly 2 full years.

As for the rest of it, I bet you don't get upset when seeing the complete lack of passion out there on the ice. Temper tantrum? :lol:

Sure thing, you're probably the one kicking the wife and throwing the cat around.
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

That's a given based on the overall set list I've heard. But cueing it up just after the Hudler goal? I'm about 40 minutes from Philly, so I'm probably fhe only person in this hotel who cares about the Wings game. I'm taking the positive energy from it.


Let's Go Wings!

Yep.

Dats - Z - Nyquist

hudler - Flip - Bert

Franzen - Kader - Homer...

I don't know if I'd even roll 4 lines constantly in this 3rd period either to be honest.

Pavs has absolutely nobody out there. He goes up against Weber and Suter and has no support. Throw Gus up there right now or this game is done. Hank's line is surging, we need pavs line to do the same.

Jiri Hudlers cbc interview sums it up when they asked what the plan is for the third period. "I don't really think there is one..."

Philly moves so fast on their powerplay chance after chance, wasting no time.

Ya cause they use an overload and have movement all we have is a box plus one with everyone standing around. It's not the players it's the setup.

Since it's April 20, is that a not-so-subtle reference to Jay and Silent Bob's favorite thing?
