I'm hoping that the more I drink as the game goes along it will make more sense. I try to picture what they're talking about in my head, but before you know it everyone's wearing a clown costume and playing kazoos.
I like that I'm hearing the word "save" a lot in regard to our less than stellar Monster. Maybe there's hope yet...

Sometimes when I'm listening to radio feeds I take some marbles (or what have you) and try to match them to what I'm hearing. After about two minutes I realize it's incredibly futile and stupid. And then I feel bad.
use those, then they melt, you cant eat them, they are delicious, and you won't feel bad

Tatar > Brunner. Weiss > Filppula. Cleary = Cleary. Alfie is icing on the cake.
Not really sure how we're worse off for this? Brunner is a good player, but I think we'll be just fine without spending big money for him.
I am curious to see whether NJ will use him on the PP point, or put him on the side boards like he should have been in Detroit. Utilized correctly I think he'll be MUCH more effective on the PP this season.
Sammy has no excuse to be rusty. Sitting out the last part of the season for a pectoral issue, he better have been busting you-know-what to get in game shape. I've got a bad feeling (not based just on one preseason game) that we're going to have the same problems as last year with some line combinations and players. I hope Babcock isn't too loyal to Sammy and Cleary if they can't pull their own weight.
I agree. I am actually hoping very hard that Bert brings the Weiss and Alfie line some chemistry and "demotes" Franzen. If that happens, most likely Cleary will be placed on the 3rd line (if Abby does well on the top line) and Sammy dropped to the 4th line. Like this:
Nyquist/Tatar have very good chances to move up into the top six when injuries inevitably occur. I DO NOT want to see Cleary on the top line and only want Franzen there as a last ditch effort (one minute left, down by a goal, goalie pulled). If Franzen is on the top line we move from a 3 line team to a 1.5 line team very quickly.
Emmerton plays in GR/gets traded, Eaves is dropped, and someone not dressed or on the 4th line is moved. I would actually prefer Eaves to stay as one of the undressed players (righty, good one-timer, great PK) but Miller is too similar of a player and is actually better on PK. And with the extension Holland has made his choice. I still like Tootoo as an option against teams playing heavy with similar players (Philly, Chicago, Boston) even though little to no offense will come from him, scoring chances and stars on the other team keeping their eyes on him and off the puck might give the Wings a slight edge. Plus, in the East, there is more "running around" by the pesky players and a "sheriff" is needed on every team. The Wings will see more teams built in the traditonally Burkian style in the East and it will be more physical. Tootoo is good to have around.
Turns down a 2 year, 2.5M deal from the Wings, and now has to resort to accepting a pro try-out to maybe play for a bottom feeder that will likely not see the post-season. Smart move there Damien. Might wanna start thinking about parting ways with your agent.
Thinking of gettiing Gamecenter Live. Is it the same thing as Gamecenter?
Gamecenter Live (sometimes called Gamecenter) is the official NHL site to watch games online (computer, phone, tablet, xbox, etc). I used it last year for the first time, and I thought it was great. For me, the only negative is that NHL Network games are blacked out, and the channel isn't available from my cable provider. There are other less expensive (or free) illegal alternatives, but IMO Gamecenter Live is worth the money.
