Me, looking thrilled.

I know I say this to a lot of people, but you don't look anything like your avatar.

#2219816 Huge brawl in the griffs game

<sigh> They're still kids with some learning to do. At this stage in the game, it's the thought and effort that count. Hopefully Downey will do some training with them and teach them the concept of "making contact with the other player's face" when throwing punches.

Still, they showed up, so good on them.

Zetterberg with the quadruple hat trick.

After being 0-0 after the first period, Babs shakes things up by switching Huds and Z. He also casually mentions that there are rumours of Flip being traded to Philly. Z doesn't hear this as he is busy reading people on LGW saying that he needs to be traded to wake the team up.

Flip panics at the thought of leaving and starts batting the puck away from the net so he doesn't accidentally score a goal which would increase Philly's interest in acquiring him.

Z eats up the loose pucks like a hungry, hungry hippo, and scored 12 goals.

Wings win 12-2. JRHIV is blamed for the 2 goals as he was crying last night in the middle of the night, unlike every other baby on the planet, who lets his daddy sleep so he can be rested for his job.

People still can't believe that Koko is an Alternate Captain until they remember he's in Florida.

Upon seeing the A on his teammate's chest, new panther Mikeal Samuelsson told the organization to go do something thought to be anatomically impossible until the Swedish Olympic Committee did so at his behest in 2010.

Seriously, he's a two-time Stanley Cup Champion. That looks great on a resume. The rest is just details.

Congrats, Kokopuffs.

Howard's wife has had a baby.

Last year, Ozzie's wife had a baby.

The last time Conks was here, his wife had a baby.

Solid proof that even if you f*** around, Detroit will bring out the best in you.

#2218908 What's up with Zetterberg?

Posted by 55fan on 27 October 2011 - 08:29 AM

Now's the time to trade Lids and Dats, Kenny, they're both getting older! Quick! Before I have to pop another Xanax or Ritalin!

Didn't we trade them to Tampa for picks, pucks, and Eric Hipple?

#2218628 This team screams for a trade

I'm thinking that someone hi-jacked the OP's account. Or he's under the influence. I know I've given him plusses before. This is out of character.

#2218617 Anyone else have a feeling that we'd lose tonight?

Posted by 55fan on 26 October 2011 - 07:22 AM

Not totally. I was, however, pretty sure that if we didn't, they would.

#2218221 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by 55fan on 25 October 2011 - 02:43 PM

I hope that he is ok. The guy has a wife and kids who have done me no wrong, so it is my wish, for their sakes, that he recovers, returns to play, and gets to spend a lot of quality time with them, especially from mid-April until September.

#2217880 I went to school with Abdelkader. Nice guy.

I lived next to a chick that was banging McCarty; but haven't we all at some time or another?

Hubert? Is that you? Do you still have my turkey baster?

#2217867 This or That

Posted by 55fan on 24 October 2011 - 10:12 AM

Why, both of course. Otherwise you have a stick and a fishhook in your sentence. All you need is a string to connect them and a worm and you are on your way to fishing, which can lead to all sorts of problems, like having to clean fish.

Yellow pages or online search?

#2217549 Trade between Florida and Vancouver

Posted by 55fan on 22 October 2011 - 08:23 PM

Too bad. Sammy and the Sedins were a great line. The Homliest Swedes Line was fun.

Seriously, I don't really understand this trade, but I don't follow Florida enough to figure this out.

#2216467 Hudler?

Posted by 55fan on 20 October 2011 - 07:00 AM

Hudler has never scored 60 points, has he?

Missed it by 3 in '08-'09.

Leaving shortly for mom's and then on to the game. I was hoping to see what Fabian had going on, but we'll have to wait and see, I guess.

Rocking the new Kronwall jersey for the first time. :D

Go Wings!!!

#2214058 Hudler?

Posted by 55fan on 11 October 2011 - 07:10 AM

Maybe they'll trade Doan for Hudler and one of the Illitch kids. They do need an owner...
