OK, we all have dreams about our guys. Some may be better kept private, but for the rest of them, why not have a place to sharethem? I get a kick out of reading other people's and would love to share mine.
I'll get the ball rolling....
I drempt that my friend Mary Jo and I were at an outside rink where the Wings were going to be playing. We were waiting at the entrance where the team would be coming out and we had paper and pens to get autographs. I had brought a textbook from school to study since we had gotten there early. I went to put it back in the car, and instead of the radio, the car had a TV screen. Pavel was on showing his RW jersey and pointing at the number 13 on it.
The sound was fuzzy, so I tuned it in just long enough to hear the words "number 13 was hit in the head by a puck and killed" then the sound went back out. I ran back to Mary Jo and told her what I had heard. The lady standing next to me on the other side of Mary Jo looked just like Oprah, except she was about 7 feet tall. She told me that Pavel was fine, and that I had only heard part of the story. The whole story was that someone had looked back in history and discovered that someone wearing the number 13 had been hit in the head by a puck and killed, and now there was a campaign to force all players wearing the number 13 to change their number. Pavel was refusing.
I was so relieved and thanked the lady. Then the team came out, in alphabetical order. I realized I had left my paper for the autographs in the car, so I dug in my pocket to find something. As Zetterberg came by, I found an old grocery receipt. I tried to get his attention, but he kept walking. The tall lady grabbed his arm and told him that I hadn't gotten an autograph yet. He looked at the receipt and asked, "You're not just going to throw this away, are you?" I said "oh, no Mr. Zetterberg, I could never throw away anything that's been touched by a Red Wing." He gave me an odd look and signed it.
Well, that was my first hockey dream. Anyone else want to share one? I thought this would be a nice place for them since not all fit in the category of "hot" or "icon".

Really, bring Mac back for some on the ice commentary. Imagine him and Micky Redman calling a game? Hilarious!
Better yet, put him between the glass like Pierre and we'd not only have a commentator, we'd have a free enforcer. You know he'd forget himself and start something. Hey, get a cable contract for "Xtreme Hockey Commentating" and he could use all the naughty words and throw all the punches he wanted. Talk about ratings! Just put a parental advisory on it.
I love D, and I'd love to see him around in some way even if his playing days are over.
