How about we need to learn to play well without Nick? I hate that he's not playing now, but is this what our future looks like when he does finally retire? Since we don't know his plans or how he feels about that decision they should be taking the opportunity to find a way to prove they have a good defensive group.
I thought Detroit fans were better than this. Of course you're going to have them everywhere. Really hope that he's caught because there is NO excuse for behavior like this, a fan is allowed to support their team no matter where they are.
I hope the new blood gets things going tonight. We need to win and Columbus is a good opponent for that to happen against. If we can win with Lids and Datsyuk out that should help the guys' confidence. That and maybe we can play the entire 60 minutes.
Leaving at 1:30 with my cousin, who's a Canucks fan, for the game tonight. They're talking about a snow storm tonight for Michigan-Ontario over night, but we're going anyway! The Weather Network says the worst will be at 4am, but we'll be back by 1:30-2am anyway, so no worries.
I made a comment on my facebook about us going, and that after tonight we may only be cousins by name only . He replied, "Remember I have the advantage, I have the car keys".
Edit: It's always a tough decision, on which jersey to wear. I have Yzerman, Shanahan, Holmstrom, and a Osgood jersey t-shirt.
Have a safe drive home, who knows what we'll get tonight. Of course enjoy the game and your cousin will hopefully be a good sport about their loss.
I'd go with Ozzie but that's just me, since Homer is the only one still on the ice go with him...he may not be here much longer.
