I wonder if Babs ever fought when he played minors, or if he'd just healthy scratch anyone he didn't like.


This literally had me laughing out loud. Zing sir. Zing.

Sorry about the delay, I should have the graphics up shortly in the OP.

Mule will have a big game because it's Colorado.

I predict Detroit puts up 11... Varly storms off the ice and immediately demands a trade

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Coach Mike Babcock said he’ll use the same lineup he has the past couple of games:

 

Henrik Zetterberg-Pavel Datsyuk-Todd Bertuzzi

Johan Franzen-Stephen Weiss-Justin Abdelkader

Daniel Cleary-Joakim Andersson-Daniel Alfredsson

Drew Miller-Luke Glendening-Jordin Tootoo

 

Niklas Kronwall-Jonathan Ericsson

Kyle Quincey-Danny DeKeyser

Jakub Kindl-Brian Lashoff

 

Jonas Gustavsson (starting)

Jimmy Howard

 

Healthy scratches: Mikael Samuelsson, Tomas Tatar, Brendan Smith

 

Tatar will be healthy scratch for the sixth time in seven games.

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Childhood?  Now you make me feel old.  It was a big part of my middleagedhood.
 
Go Wings.  Crush Roy. 


You'll always be a young woman to me: I would always play on the little league all star team with Pat LaFontaine while growing up.

Well Bordeleau is going to have some fun tonight, that's for sure hopefully he doesn't do something stupid.

 

Other than that the Avalanche are very hot at the moment so I would be happy with a point.

Hard to change a winning lineup but think Tatar could have helped us against the Avs speed.

Gus in net again? Hope he can have another strong game, but it will be a big test. 3 straight solid performances would really solidify him as someone to count on this season.

Looking forward to seeing Colorado, but the Wings better be ready, this is the hottest team we've faced this year.

Agreed.

It's unfortunate if Smith ends up getting the Ian White treatment. He didn't get off to a great start but it was only 4 games and he's only 24 years old. Him sitting on the bench is a waste of an asset. Hopefully he'll get back in and settle down.

Given how everybody is playing right now, who do you scratch to get him back in the lineup though?

Smith will get back in but right now Lashoff is actually playing surprisingly well and Smith was off to a rough start. Hopefully this motivates him to be better when he gets back in the line-up. 

 

There is also the possibility that he's one of the guys potentially moved out to clear cap and roster space.

I like that Roy's been very humble about things. ("We have to earn back respectability, we're not on the same level as the Wings" - something to that effect.) I guess that makes me a big homer - but he's probably talking with his fingers crossed anyway.

 

I really can't put into words how awesome the rivalry was. For a few years, it really was a blood feud. These guys absolutely hated each other, and so did their fans. I was, again, just a kid way back in the mid-90s, and I absolutely detested everything about the organization with all of my heart and soul. Healthy? Maybe not. But awesome? Yes.

 

Remember, what was it, the '97 series?, when we won 6-0 at home, then went into their barn and lost 6-0? Just great narrative stuff like that, that's what really made the rivalry great, IMHO. It was like stuff out of a book or something.


Don't Toews me, bro!
