In the news today Kenny Holland has signed Joey Kocur to a one game contract and rumors circulate about voodoo rituals that have taken place in upper Red Wings offices and the surprise announcement of another one game contract will be awarded to a former number 24.
God I miss the bruise brothers Dats would be avenged for sure
I think you leave the roster alone, the young guys looked nervous, understandably so. Even Dekeyser who has been as solid as a Rock with outlet passes bungled a few. (get it, Seger comment in OP, solid as a rock, ahhh, I know not funny!)
Or perhaps we simply Turn the Page to game 2 without the nerves with the younger players.
We get 7th, CBJ (from Ohio and like their chances of beating on Chi as they have all season with a maybe upset) at 8th. We may get a round or two.
Under this scenario I see (read as wish on shooting stars last night)
Round 1 West Only
1. Chicago beat by CBJ in 6
2. Anaheim beat by Det in 6
3. Vancouver beats Stl in 7
4. Los Angeles beat by SJ in 6
Van beats CBJ in 7
SJ beat by Det in 6
Van beat by Det in 6
Det beats the ever loving snot, pee, and any other bodily substance imaginable out of Pitt in 4 with TooToo administering the Coupe D'Grace on #87 as Bettman stands helplessly by. And while Datsuyk is handed the Conn Smythe he hands it immediately to TooToo for his heroics as McCarty beams from behind the Det bench. Also Bert gets his first skate with the Cup.
So shall it be written, so shall it be done.
I will put forth my good thoughts for this scenario!!
