#2251851 What happened to Zetterberg's scoring touch?

Posted by 55fan on 03 February 2012 - 12:58 PM


We're all concerned about Hank not getting the goals, but his linemates are scoring in droves. To me this says that Hank is getting the job done. Also, his shots on goal is still up there. To me this says that he is kind of snakebit (although a minor bite- maybe just one fang) at the moment.

I have no doubt that he will continue to impress, although factors such as age and injury do and will have their effect. He is, after all human.

This is an important one. Two points and a chance to get in the heads of someone we might meet in the playoffs.

Get out there and do it, boys!

#2250629 Blue Jackets Fans Protest Management

Protests are stupid. If you want to change things, get yourself in a position to do something. Get off your butt and become part of the process that makes the decisions instead of sitting around trying to get attention.

My liver wouldn't take it.

The fact that it might have to be pushed back is reason enough not to.

Also... I don't know... it just seems like we're kind of trying to legitimize ourselves by tacking on to a bigger sport. Not keen on it.

Honourable mention to Datsyuk, Lids, and Conklin for plunging the toilet.

The mascot was a chick??

Hard to tell with insects. Only they know for sure.

Geesh. Both times I read "taking titles" I read it "taking titties".

There is something seriously wrong with me.

In other news... Hope you had a great time, Brandon.

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


With what?

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.
