(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.
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.
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.
