Maybe the ref had...you know...like razor blades tucked in his knuckles? I mean you never know, we don't know his struggles. Coming up from the wrong side of the tracks and whatnot. He had to learn how to take care of himself, no one else was going to. What with his dad leaving when he was four and his mom working three jobs just to make ends meet. He had to make a name for himself on the streets, so no one would mess with his mute brother Clarence. "Razor Fists" they would call him. Now he lies awake at night, wondering how things could have been different.
Or, you know, Crysby is a poopy diaper diving baby.
Glendening is shutting down and pissing off the likes of Crosby and Stamkos in his rookie season - and he wasn't even suppposed to be on the roster. That's huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge. Goals will come. He's certainly had his chances.
Did you guys hear Ken Daniels quoting Babcock on Glenny:
"Other than Nick Lidstrom, Steve Yzerman, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Crosby, Toews, and Bergeron, Luke Gendening is the most competitive player I've ever coached."
Personally, I'd rather they just put Weiss on the shelf for the rest of the season and both sides can put this season behind us and start fresh. He's basically missed two whole seasons, he's with a new team and can't be in good shape at all. I can't really see him adding a whole lot. While I expected more out of Legwand, I still think he's going to bring more to the table than Weiss. I just don't think the Wings can afford to put someone in who needs 10 games to get his legs and conditioning back.
I want to see how we play in the 3rd, with the Leafs playing last night.
Whenever we're in the same situation, we looked gassed in the 3rd and everyone here makes excuses about how we played last night, yada yada yada.
LOL, I would say that only happens to us and other teams never get hit by tired bug, but I watched Hawks play Ottawa last night and they looked sickening. Was nice to see Hawk's team get skated circles around by a more rested and hungry Ottawa team.
After all these injuries and with only 10 games left the positive is that the Wings are in a playoff spot, that is incredible in itself.
The kids have been amazing but they can only do so much even as brilliant as Nyquist has been. Could very well have had a few more points if a guy like Franzen woke up and wasn't a useless phook these past few games.
Howard is getting back to being that playoff Howard we now know going to need that down the stretch, hopefully some good news on the injury front come Thursday.
