Sounds like Vladdy is in the room right now. If that can't motivate them nothing will. LGW.

 

you would hope, even though none of the current players ever played when he did.   I wish they would put the old motto back up, they seem to have lost a bit of the responsible play since Blash removed it.

I hope those checks have enough funds.

 

Hip checks?  Poke checks?  Czech checks (that's Mraz).   Go Wings!!!

Q is probably hurt... sprained his beard, perhaps.   Wings will win this one, I think.  If they are not embarrassed and ANGRY about the stupidity of the last game in particular - from the officiating to their own bone-headedness - they really don't stand a chance.   I am not bashing Blashill as the total reason they are so ... well, bad.   The players have the responsibility out there on the ice. 

 

Mrazek will have a LOT to prove tonight... I am squarely in his corner and in Jimmy's as well.  The losses in Tampa were certainly not on Jimmy.  Challenge is out for Nyquist and Tatar - if he's playing - to show up!   Now or never, Wings.

 

Thank you for the GDT, Mikey.   LGRW!!!!

Headline:  "Justin Abdelkader: Detroit Red Wings Player Attacks Tampa Bay Lightning's Mike Blunden in Line Brawl"

I was glad to see Abby kinda lose it.  About time - Larkin and Richards were both targeted, Datsyuk lost a tooth three feet from an official (shrug...)  Should Abby face supplemental discipline?  Hell, no.  It's hockey, not a prom.  The Blots players piled on him, and Abby fought back.  

 

Love how the Bolts are lily-white and oh-so-innocent.  No wonder Stevie Y won't show his face.  :lol:

Wings don't have any killer instinct... at all

LOL @ Blots fans shouting "Refs, you suck"  I don't think I care to know exactly what the refs are sucking....

TB fans are big fat babies... and their Big Fat Goalie is scared of our baby.  Good.

I am just glad to be able to see at all... Go, Wings, GO!!

OK, I was deprived of hockey on Wednesday - out of town working in Omaha... and no way to watch.  So the Wings were sad, and didn't win... but they tried.  I am home and get to watch tonight.  Having sacrificed another bit of my so-called sanity and not being able to see Game One - the hockey gods owe me a big W here tonight.   Let's go Wings - take it home tied up, then keep going!!

 

LGRW!!

wow.. that was a difficult choice, all of them are disgustingly charming in their own right... the lines in Contestant #1... pure brilliance and hilarity.  You're all amazingly ridiculous and I love you. 




#2666782 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 April 2016 - 10:51 AM

I am enjoying the discussion and ideas here... It's not over yet.  I am waiting for the end of the Wings' run for the Cup -- ideally, with a Cup! -- until I get too overwhelmed here. 

 

Stranger things have happened, and he might stay to play out his contract.   Z will retire, too, and then we have a whole new ball game (puck game, what have you).

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 April 2016 - 10:26 AM

this is just me, but I think we will be fine after a rather large elephant in the room is addressed.  Who will be Captain when Z retires, which will be shortly after Datsyuk leaves -- if in fact he does leave and doesn't honor the rest of this $7.5M hit.  Z is aging and injured and won't survive without his EuroTwin. 

 

Nyquist plays like a ghost when Pasha is out there.   It's time for him and the younger players to establish an identity on the ice and play Wings hockey.  Haven't seen that in a while -- it is time for a change, even if it hurts like Hell to do it.  What I have been looking at is a team with two identities, and they do not communicate well. 

 

Time to put the sign back:  To whom much is given, much is expected.   This is Hockeytown.

Wings will be OK.  Life goes on.   Nyquist will come into his own and we will be fine.  Have a nice life, Pasha, we love you endlessly.
