LOVE Bert! He is such a bad ass. You can tell hes been holding back given his past, but I'm so happy hes starting to come out & play like he has. I might be going to saturday's game.. it would be awesome to start this tradition! Everytime one of the Wings score, or make a big play, we start chanting the individual name. The opposing team would hate us.
The Wings are so lucky to have fans like us poor Phoenix..
Nashville couldnt come at a better time. And although I hope hes getting better, I'm kind of glad Datsyuk is still out because I'm anxious to see how intense the others will play. Plus if we win this, nobody can say "oh datsyuks the only thing that can save this team" it will just be a glorious Wings victory
Lets go RW!! show us the team we've been waiting to see!
ALso, I just re-read this thread, and I completely agree:
This habit of loving the backup and hating the starter is getting old. This is an injury thread and people are essentially saying that they are happy that Howard is hurt and that a career backup is the better choice. Hell, people were discussing Howard's replacement on page one. Would the same occur in a Datsyuk injury thread or a Zetterberg injury thread? The truth is that very few respect the goaltender position around here and there is definitely a faction that hates Howard, just as there is one for Ozzie. Take your criticisms to the Howard watch thread where they belong. Absolutely pathetic behavior in here.
I'm so sick (and actually sad) of hearing the hate on howard, especially from wings fans..
Wow.. what a game! really nice comeback regardless of our loss.
Three things that stand out to me the most :
--Please please howie get back up! It seemed like he didn't show much emotion compared to how he usually is, which made it worse. I'm still [one of the very few] rooting for him. Every goalie has these years.. i just would like to see him step it up come next month!
--Extremely happy for MO! long overdue!!! But what better team than to score on pitt?
