I've been waiting for this game since last Saturday's game. The Sens knocked the Wings all over the ice last game. It's time for the Wings to pay back the favors (I wouldn't be disappointed if Spezza or Ryan get knocked out for a few games from the "legal" hits that Shanny is going to overlook).

It sucks that 22 can't be called up but I'm hoping that some other players step up and play a more physical game.

Well as long as Shanny won't know how many games that player will miss he can't suspend anyone right

I would like to see the Wings hit'em where it hurts. The score board.

Crushing this team on the score board, will leave a mark that lasts longer then a bruise.

This game; Helm = free curly fries

Lets go Wings!!!!!!

This is a really good read:

Daniel Alfredsson Returns [silver Seven]

It covers, among other things, Alfie's ealy trials and tribulations as a Sen. I had always assumed it was smooth sailing from the very beginning, but apparently it wasn't...

Predictably, summer 2001 was time to negotiate another contract. Alfredsson bristled at the fact that his leadership was questioned and that he was chastised for calling out Yashin’s commitment issues. Again, negotiations between Alfredsson and the Senators were difficult. The 28-year old wanted a two-year, $7 million deal; Sens GM Marshall Johnston drove a hard bargain. Rumours circulated that the Swede had again asked for a trade out of Ottawa and that Johnston was working hard to get the winger to agree to a contract as part of a sign and trade move – Vancouver and the New York Rangers were rumoured destinations. After missing the bulk of training camp, #11 signed a one-year deal for $3 million on September 21, a slight raise on the $2.8 million he made during the 2000-2001 season.

With Alfredsson signed, Johnston tried to defuse the persistent rumours that the Swede was on the block. Less than a week after signing, a storm again erupted over his captaincy. Alfredsson, still irritated, told reporters he didn’t think he could remain captain because of a lack of support from Jacques Martin at the end-of-season meetings and from management during his contract negotiations. The following day he walked-back his comments, but reiterated the choice of captain was ultimately Martin’s. Alfredsson stated, "I might still be the captain…if I have their support".

Makes me think the seeds for Alfie's departure were planted long ago.

Please, Wings, show up for this game and for Alfie. I am so tired of seeing the Wings allow the opposition to walk all over a former player, in a game that has meaning for that player - it's almost become a rite of passage. Please don't let me (and Alfie) down, boys.

Just win. Thank you!!

If Tatar gets a hatty do you get free tater tots instead? or perhaps the release a million packets of tartar sauce from the ceiling...

As much as I want to win and as pissed as I am, I still could never wish for another player to get injured.

Usually I don't either but I just hate it when the DetroitRedWings are getting "glasssmashed" ellbowed and what not and other starplayers are always always coming off lightly against us. To be honest I'm a fan of Spezza and Karlsson but just pissed with the wole situation and I also think Cowen will turn into an absolute beast in his prim.e

I'm with you and you won't see me crying if Cowan gets Kronwalled and misses this game. I just don't want any long term or serious injury. But more realistically the Wings will either have a "fight" or won't do anything. As much as we want them to be tougher they just haven't been that sort of team since the 90's.
