Depends on the song they use.


Most of them make my music degree cringe. Hopefully the one they pick to bombard us with didn't have the suck knob turned up to 11 and broken off when they mixed it.

Eliot is more animated than I've ever seen. I still want Murph back.

Howard is a fine cut of steak or perhaps ribs.


The steak I could go with, but... bacon DOES make everything better. ;). (Then again, I am a bass player, so I require a much higher than normal blood bacon level)

Great to see Lashoff back.

Hrm... after that average thread about Howard, I guess Howard is to average what bacon is to meat.

As long as someone clocks him if he does..... :boxing:


I'd settle for a pre-emptive Kronwalling.

No, dress Edzo. Like I said in the other thread, he'd have an apoplectic stroke if he had to call a game favorably for the Wings. One game (heck maybe one period) and he'd be off to the ER.

Or maybe Brunner has been scratched because of low TV ratings


Sadness for no Murph tonight.

Franzen being back is what has made that line work. He does what Cleary couldn't and pulls defenders away from Datsyuk, after that last game Babcock would be crazy to change that line.
 
I'd like to see Brunner with Nyquist until the Datsyuk, Abby and Franzen line cools off.
 
I think the idea behind moving Brunner down was to get him away from Perry, Ryan and Getzlaf and get him some easier match-ups defensively.


 
If Tootoo could play center I think he'd be playing over Emmerton.
 
I'd probably scratch Eaves tonight in place of Tootoo just because I expect a rough game and Eaves is playing with a full shield,

I agree with the idea of Brunner being moved down to get him away from Perry, Ryan, and Getzlaf. It also puts a decent scoring threat on three lines.

I like your idea of Nyquist and Brunner together. If they click, imagine if they are paired with Helm?


#2373003 Larry Murphy Fired by FSD

In all seriousness, it sucks that Murph was let go. He came across as the guy you could sit down and have a few beers with and discuss the game. He knows his stuff. He may not have been the most polished, but I enjoyed him on the broadcasts. He definitely loves Detroit and the Wings, and I hope he gets picked up by the organization. I think he'd be a great coach.

Anybody care to explain why bobby ryan wasnt suspended for instigating a fight with under 5 min to play in the last one?


Top line player against the Wings. Malkin exemption. ;).

this would sting a little less if it weren't Setoguchi scoring on us so much, hated him ever since he was with the Sharks and diving all over the ice, esp. during the playoffs


Yes, he outdove the entire IJN air corps during WWII over the course of a single playoff series.

If Luongo is an "elite" goalie, give me "average" Howard any day.

Hey, does Cleary have a goal scoring streak now? I thought he was supposed to be the worst hockey player on the planet based on some of the posts here.

With Tootoo mastering the deflection off the d-man's butt, is that now called a Tooteus maximus?

Great to see goals from Tootoo and Kronwall to get the lead. Nice follow-up to Howard's shut-out win yesterday. Oh, btw, was that an "average" shutout?
