I have no faith or confidence in the Wings right now. I'm afraid they're showing their true colors. Wings will lose tonight. Probably be a blow out for the Leafs. I can see a 5-6 goal game from the Leafs.

 

Mindfly, is that you?

So on the one hand we're playing a realgud team, which usually means we play realgud

 

On the other, its a matinee game which usually means we sleepwalk through it.

 

Not sure what to expect here....

In the East?  Absolutely.  The East is wide open.  Boston have lost some of their depth and it shows, Pittsburgh still have no wingers and questionable goaltending.  Zetterberg and Datsyuk may not quite be at the elite level of Crosby and Malkin any more, but the Pens would kill for our depth at wing, and I wouldn't swap Howard for three MAF's

 

The current, healthy crop of forwards is what we've been looking forward to for several years.  Add a RH PMD and we have a rounded, balanced team.  Good PK, PP improving, good goaltending, what's not to like?

Too funny Shanny
 
A friend of mines mom was a real estate agent back in the day and she was somehow involved in the sale of Shanny's home in Detroit. Apparently all he had in his basement (which was a dark unfinished cellar basically) were boxes of thousands of Shanahan trading cards and cot, not a bed, a cot. He told her that that is where he sleeps on the night before a game. Dude's hardcore.


He's also well known for winding people up with enormous porkies. Remember when it said the media guide that he was a backup goalie for Ireland at the 94 World Cup?

I think they're being ultra cautious with groins this year. Better to sit for a week than try to play through it and be out 2 months. Plus we have 4 days off after the Tampa game
