I wonder what would've happened if a cheerleader had squirted him?


With what?

#2247710 1/21 GDT: Blue Jackets 2 at Red Wings 3 (SO)

You forgot about Datsyuk's 5 minute major penalty slashing Lebda's arm off. Lebda scores his last goal with his left arm.

Awesome. Should only be temporary. If he can regenerate his career, his arm should be no problem.

Oh, dear. We all know how this goes:

Wings: 3
(1)Ericsson, (2)Miller, (3)Helm
Wings called back: 2
(1)Homer for goaltender interference despite that fact that he was near the blue line when he shot it, (2)one that went in after Patty Sunshine in the press box heard a good joke and smiled, melting the ice between the puck and goal causing the puck to slide the path of least resistance.

BJ's: 3 Lebda, Lebda, Lebda

Game decided in a shoot-out. BJ's win on a shot by Lebda.

#2247538 Brad Stuart to the West Coast?

Posted by 55fan on 20 January 2012 - 02:29 AM

If memory serves me right, Stuie passed up a better offer from Calgary because he didn't want his step-daughter to have to go through customs alone when she went to visit her dad. Also, the reason for the NTC in part of his stay here was due to not wanting her to have to change schools part way through.

I'm guessing that the original plan was for his wife to come live here, but it didn't pan out. There could be all sorts of reasons- maybe his step-daughter's dad didn't allow it or there were other issues that were out of his hands. I don't know. It's just speculation.

I do know that when I read that about him, that I got a totally new respect for him. A man who puts his family first is a great man in my book.

Meh. Statistically any pick beyond the 3rd round isn't supposed to make the NHL.

Good thing statistics aren't carved in stone.

Go Wings!

We need to keep pushing. No letting our feet off the pedal. It's good to be at the top, but it takes as much work to stay there as it does to get there.

Weaselbritches with the hattie- just to send Dawn diving into another bottle of wine. :D

#2246297 Why don't we have a "JIM-MY JIM-MY!" chant yet?!

Posted by 55fan on 17 January 2012 - 08:17 AM

He doesn't get a "Howie Howie" chant until he beats up an insufferable, arrogant goalie at center ice as his former roommie avenges his bff's broken face.

Until then, "Jimmy, Jimmy" or "Jimmy Howard" or "James Russel Howard III" (if we can get a good clapping rhythm going) is certainly merited. His play has been fantabulous.

Ok, everyone who didn't score a goal last night, score one tonight.

On the Wings, that is. Not the Stars.

#2246047 Brad Stuart to the West Coast?

Posted by 55fan on 16 January 2012 - 05:01 PM

It seems that Stuart likes playing with Detroit and I will be sad when he leaves. I just wish his family would consider moving to MI. I always find it odd when when families won't move to where a player has to play. You would think that they would want to be where their husband and father is and not clear across the country from them.

He has a step-daughter who would be pulled away from her dad if the family moved. I thought they had moved here with him, but I guess I was wrong. At first, them staying in Cali was so she could be with both of her parents, but now that Stuie's son is getting older, I can see Stuie wanting to be with him.

I will miss him, and I hope they let him finish out the season here (barring a totally insane gotta-do trade), but if he wants to go, there really isn't anything stopping him.

I do think whoever said "trade his rights for a mid-round pick" had the best idea so far. Where ever he ends up, I wish him well. He was a good pick up for us, and has served us well.

what on earth does that stupid pig say in that geico commercial?

I think he's the little pig that went WHEEWHEEWHEE all the way home.

At the very end he says something like, "Pure adrenalin, man." Or something like that. I want to shoot him and turn him into porkchops. With Shake n Bake. Or maybe I'll Shake him, Bake him, shoot him, and then turn him into porkchops.

Annoying little bastard.

Are you afraid he'll get Pierre cooties? :lol:

I'm worried about what he'll have to sit in. Might stain his dark suit.

Good grief. This pretty much sucks. If Chicago wins this game, I hope the JLA cleaning staff makes sure to wipe off the seat between the glass before Murph has to sit there again.

Jimmy is a hero.

Why is Patrick Kane on my TV?

Because we're playing the Blackhawks. It's a price we pay to get the Wings on tv. Don't worry. It's only temporary. He'll go away after this game.

First game I ever went to was a Hawk vs Wing game. We lived in Chicago at the time and my Dad said, " the team in the Red and White is the team we are rooting for. See that 19, he's our boy. See that 91, he is magic. " I was 10 years old at the time. My Dads funeral is today so I will be missing the game, but I hope my Dad is on Gods good side and we come out with a regulation win. That's what he'd want. Go Wings!!!!!!!!

<hugs, dear>
If the game is televised in heaven, my dad has probably invited your dad over for beer and hockey.

I'll be thinking of you today. Take care.
