I liked Chicago better when my non-hockey savvy friends would say, "Chicago has a hockey team?" - much like the people of Chicago said, at one point in time. Let's get back to that, shall we? Go, Rags!!!
Just found out one of my good friends passed away on Sunday at 23. He was one of the biggest Wings fans I knew and I'm certain he's up there plotting with the hockey gods already. Keep an eye out for any Red Wing bounces or puck luck tonight. It will be his doing. LGRW.
I'm so sorry for your loss, condolences to his family and friends, and big hugs to you. Yes, we need angels on our side, all we can get. They will win it for your buddy!
NBC has great love for the Nutcracker and all things Boston Goon related. I take back what I said earlier about out-smarting and out-playing them. The Wings are going to have to figure out how to out-goon them, somehow.
thanks for the stellar GDT, Mike, it's much appreciated!! Wings will really have to man up for this one (including DeKe) if they want to prevail.
Bruins have already shown they are dirty and willing to do whatever they have to, even if they hurt the other team's players... heads on swivels, guys... especially you, Pasha. They will be trying to take out Pasha, Gus Gus and Jimmy... but I am sure the Wings know this, too.
Out-smart them, out-play them and take them down the right way, Wings.
I am sorry Weiss was never a Wing, really. I would much rather have him sit out the rest of the season, including the playoffs, since he's really never played with the current roster. Visions of Hatcher standing around in the playoffs, costing us goals/games, because he wasn't able to really play.
