#2391789 'Twas The Night Before Playoffs

Posted by Peadydog on 29 April 2013 - 03:38 PM

‘Twas The Night Before Playoffs


 ‘Twas the night before Playoffs and all through the Joe

Not a player was skating, not fast and not slow.

The jerseys were hung from the rafters with care

Stevie, Sid, Gordie, Terry, Ted, and Alex were there.


The fans in Detroit were all snug in their beds,

While Stanley Cup fever danced ‘round in their heads.

Val Filppula, Gustav Nyquist, Colaiacovo, you see

Would star in their dreams of what would soon be.


Next day on the ice there would be such a clatter,

That, for true fans of hockey, nothing else would matter.

Away to the arena, we fly like a flash,

(Unless we can’t get tickets, ‘cause we don’t have the cash).


The laser light show on the freshly groomed ice

Would light up the way as we welcome our guys!

Then, what to our wondering eyes should appear?

But the best of the NHL, at least so far this year.


Now Z is our Captain, a new forward named Brunner

It’s time to re-tool, it couldn’t have happened sooner.

More rapid than eagles, the players they came,

And we whistled and shouted, and called them by name.


“Now Kindl! Now Kronwall!  Now, go, Kyle Quincey!

On Datsyuk! On DeKeyser! And, now, Danny Cleary!

Into the Playoffs!  With the best of the League!

There’s no turning back!  There will be no fatigue!”


“There’s Bertuzzi!, Tomas Tatar, and Ian White!

Jan Mursak!  Riley Sheahan!  They’ll all show their might!

Thanks to Petr Mrazek and Brendan Smith!

We got to this point, this team knows no quit!”


No rest for the worry, surely we’ll whelm!

Here’s Franzen! And Ericsson! And now Darren Helm!!

There’s Tootoo! and Andersson! and Jimmy in net.

Drew Miller, Patrick Eaves, the best fourth line yet!


They say we’re getting old, we know that’s not true

We simply reload and reload, that’s what we do!

With Lashoff and Abby and don’t forget Cory

Our young guys can bring it, there’ll be no worry!


As the Blackhawks and the Ducks and Canucks all cry,

When they meet with the Wings, and their Stanley dreams die.

As the Penguins do crumble and Montreal meets with fate,

The Bruins and Capitals will just have to wait.


Then, dressed up so nicely, in the best they could find,

The coaches line up, with the trainers behind.

There’s Renny, and Bill Peters, and head coach Mike Babcock

And, on the bench, The Monster, our faithful back-up!


A lock-out shortened season

Caused some frustration and tears.

Would we keep the streak alive?

Yes!  Now it’s 22 years!!


Ken Daniels makes the calls, he’s in no hurry

And on a sad note, oh how we miss Larry Murphy!

Our eyes, how they twinkle!  Our hearts are so merry!

With Redmond to comment, or maybe Don Cherry.


With a wink of his eye and a twist of his head,

Mike soon had assured us we had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word; these guys know how to win

To the Finals we go, we can do this again.


They spring to the ice, as the referees whistle,

In pursuit of the Cup they will fly like a missile.

And the fans will exclaim, whether they lose or they win,

“Go, Red Wings!  We Love You!  What a great year it’s been!”

#2333321 NHL Officially Cancels 2013 Winter Classic

Posted by StormJH1 on 02 November 2012 - 03:27 PM

I am so ANGRY right now. Knew this was coming for weeks, and it just gets worse and worse. The 2012 lockout, for me anyway, is so much worse than the 2004-05 lockout. At least during THAT lockout, I felt like the game had serious problems that needed to be addressed. Also, we didn't know what the loss of a full season would feel like, and there was hope (until January) that it could be saved.

This time, I KNOW what a lockout feels like. And this lockout has NO purpose that means anything to a fan. All the people telling me that the owners need a bigger share of the pie so that the 18 teams losing money can be back in the black...shut up. Please shut up. There was nothing in the owners' proposal that would do anything to keep idiot GM's from circumventing their own rules they asked for, and generally doing an awful job running hockey teams in markets that don't even really want hockey.

If I hear the phrase "new NHL" one more time, I might have a nervous breakdown. What did we accomplish in exchange for losing an entire year? Take back your stupid salary cap, cap floor, trapezoid, regular season shootouts, and obstruction calls and give me back the old NHL. If you had to completely blow up the system to get what you want, and having gotten what you want (plus $3.3 billion revenues), and you STILL can't figure out how to divide up all the money you collected from the fans?!

That ruins any chance my Flyers had of being the top team in Scotland, really looking forward to Drew coming to Fife! Probably the closest I'll come to a Red Wings game!!

She's definitely what you'd call a role player.

She is to fake boobs what Giguere is to goalie pads.

Is it just coincidence the amount of crap Timmy's gotten since making his political affiliation known? I think not.


#2301884 Iginla

Posted by rrasco on 17 May 2012 - 04:07 PM

No chance in hell Nysquist is out, especially for an older player. Iginla would be great, but they won't mortgage the future for instant gratification.

Luongo to NY Islanders. (e5)

Anyone not a Preds or Blues fan has ZERO room to gloat about teams being eliminated right now.

And who are you to proclaim this? I'll gloat about other teams being eliminated as much as I please.

#2295169 25 Games for Torres

Posted by cvv8 on 21 April 2012 - 11:16 AM

It's nice of Torres to go ahead and serve everyone else's suspensions as well.
