Go Wings! My wedding rehearsal is today so it looks like this will be the first game of the year I miss. Hopefully last game against Florida taught them something and they come out and crush 'em tonight.
Am I the only one who thinks that a.) the sample size is much to small to have reliable stats and b.) that shootouts are more or less coin flips and therefore the whole discussion about how Howard or the team sucks in shootouts is pretty much pointless ?

Has anyone actually ever switched goaltenders for the shootout?
Coach Gordon Bombay once swapped backup Julie "The Cat" Gaffney with starter Greg Goldberg because her quick glove hand provided an edge against Team Iceland sniper Gunnar Stahl, who favored shooting high glove in the shootout.
I love the nicknames! But agree that they fly more if you are in the actual locker room. Usage probably reflects the fact that I wish I was one of the boys (also term that is used) in the locker room/have been in the past. Sorry if they annoy others but I will definitely continue to be using them!
You forgot pasha for datsyuk, dk for dekeyser. disney.com for glendening, tinky winky for sheahan smitty for Smith and useless for kindl/quincey knees for Cleary...

stop calling him Mule, stop calling him Pav, stop calling him Z....jeez, these names are used so we don't have to type the entire name out. If you enjoy writing Nestrasil everytime you talk about him, go for it. I for one, do not care if people call him Nesty.
