Maybe he'll go to Vancouver- just to prove that Swedes can be cuter than Sammy and the Twins.
The problem that I'm having isn't the keeping of Maltby over Lilja. They aren't in competition for position. Where I'm not happy is the keeping of Meech over Lilja. Granted Meech can play forward, which is useful, but Ericsson started as a forward too. He could do it in a pinch.
i would just like to note that the draft jersey he is wearing Delvecchio's retired #10. I know that all the teams draft jerseys have the number of the draft year, but i wonder if Kenny, babs and the gang who went up on stage had something to say to bettman about it. If anything it was a rare opportunity to see a #10 wings jersey. i hope its a good omen of how this draft class will turn out for the wings
We'll get to see it in a couple of years again.
What year did they start doing that anyway? Was it with Cheli back in LXII?
This Sheahan kid sounds good, and I do have to admit that the name reminded me of Shanny.
The whole city? Wow. That ought to cause some problems...
No. Abner Detroit. He has a shoe-shine stand in Milwaukee. He's making the trip down to see the banner raised. Look for the guy in the cheesehead with really shiny shoes.
As far as the opener goes: Why not Analheim? Might as well start with them. At least it should be better than the last couple of years. St. Louis (if you count Sweden as "home") and Toronto. Talk about embarassing. At least for the Ducks we bring our A game.
And as much as I hate them, I do love the Stache and I would do obscene things to get Getzlaf in a Wings jersey.
Maybe he could join the Leafs at the trade deadline next year. Then he'd only have to play for a about a month.
I don't have the same hate for him now as I had for Avs from that era at that time, but he's not Gentleman Joe enough to rise above the Avs uniform for me. Whatever. I wish him no ill, it's just fun to poke fun at him.
This just in: NHL officials hired to study whether or not enforcers would improve the efficacy of the Chicago police force, or whether they would tarnish the city's government's reputation, which, historically speaking, is right up there with the trustworthiness of NHL officials. Crosby named most valuable consultant. LGW discusses.
