WIngs score 10 goals, one for each of Dano's busted out teeth. Poor baby!

Poor guy. Glad he isn't missing any time. I thought he has been much better as of late. Can't complain having a player like him in the bottom 6.

Did anyone pay attention to the part where Babs talks about the morning skate? He says that because he has "Kids" on the team he has to make morning skate mandatory, Implying that young players are not as good/ready blah blah blah. He says that if it was mostly vets he wouldn't have to make it mandatory.

I for one always beleived Babs and Holland favored vets for a variety of reasons. But that exchange made, at least to me, it seem like to me that young players are just basically completely unappreciated here. thoughts?

Not really.  Kids need more practice.  It's like that with anything you do.  If you've been doing something for 20 years, you're probably as good as you're going to get at it.  If you're 20 years old, there's still a lot of room to grow.

 

Another thing is that the kids are still getting used to the NHL game, and since they're call-ups, they're still fitting into the lineup and getting used to their teammates.  The vets that have been here a while know each others' tendencies, and the ones like Alfie may not know the individuals, but they've been around enough to adjust quickly.

 

Both the need for practice and the need for making them more comfortable in their surroundings are reasons to have the kids practice more.

 

Other thoughts:  "Go dye your hair."  Really?  That's like calling the fat kid "fatso".  Shows no originality or effort.  -oooooooh burn, did you wake up at three in the morning thinking "hey!  he has grey hair!  I'll tell him to dye it!"- Don't quit your day job.

 

Nice bit on DeKe.  It's what the series needs: more slow-mo getting-dressed shots not involving equipment.  The whole "putting on skates and/or pads in slow-mo" is getting old.

 

Johan's Eddie is getting to be a big boy.  Cute as a little muffin.

 

Hank moved three years ago?  After he and Emma re-did the kitchen in their old house?  Wow.  That rich and still flipping houses.  Wonder if this one was a fixer-upper too.  That would be a cool show.  Hockey + DYI = my kind of show.

 

Smith's dad is funny.  Loved the "went down like a cheap suit" comment.  Was waiting for "hooker" rather than "suit" but I guess even dads draw the line somewhere.

 

Not in the show, but would have been cool props:  Dec. 19th was 3 years of sobriety for Tootoo.  Good for him.

I will be at this one,before I head back to Louisiana on Tuesday

I know you're a Preds fan, but since you like the Wings too you need to sit between fans of both teams. 

 

When the Preds score high-five Preds fans with your right hand, and when the Wings score high-five Wings fans with your left hand.  I hope your left hand gets slapped silly!  :P

#2468305 Dion Phaneuf Close to signing Extension

Did not want Phaneuf in the first place.

 

So this comes as a "sigh" of relief.

 

Good for the Leafs and Phanny

Not only do the wings get beat up physically, they get beat up verbally  :lol: The part with Bert and the bottle was funny. He was successful in getting under their skin. 

 

I have friends that are actually trying to get Red Wings water bottles so they can send them to Clarkson. :lol:

Good to see a regulation win. Get your scotch ready for the Predabillies game on Monday. Top shelf only, the swill will count as moonshine and help Nashville.

I drank a Estate Reserve tonight, that will do on Monday. ;)

How big is Monster's paddle save on Phaneuf? He doesn't make that (disgustingly awesome) save and I bet we lose.

Second episode about 1000x better than the first one.  I still laugh at the producers creating drama over which team is worse, along with the dramatic, sad music... like a piano solo at funeral.  Very dirge-like indeed.  Best scene was Kronner and the kids... and the Leafs steak dinner where they played credit card roulette.  :lol:

"Let's go score in this net right here"

*points to net*

*kid skates to other net*

"Or over there"

Lashoff and Quincey over Kindl is a head-scratcher. Tootoo in the lineup  :clap:
