does it? really? this is what a classic let down game is in the websters dictionary? can we get a reference please 

 

Just looked it up see number 6 specifically

 

let·down

[let-doun] Show IPA
noun
1.   a decrease in volume, force, energy, etc.: a letdown in sales; a general letdown of social barriers.
2.   disillusionment, discouragement, or disappointment: The job was a letdown.
3.   depression; deflation: He felt a terrible letdown at the end of the play.
4.   the accelerated movement of milk into the mammary glands of lactating mammals upon stimulation, as by massage or suckling.
5.  Aeronautics . the descent of an aircraft from a higher to a lower altitude preparatory to making an approach and landing or to making a target run or the like.
6.  game a game where the players from Detroit decide that they will win games on talent alone and not a combination of hustle and talent.  Then decide to play with 10 minutes left in game down  2 goals. Usually occurs after a heroic game/moment but has been seen based on opponents after a west coast road trip.

Datsyuk returns tonight!! Welcome back Pav!
 
Buffalo is down their first two goaltenders, along with Stewart and Myers. Their lineup looks pretty awful, and we have our best Center back in. If we can't beat Buffalo tonight there is something seriously wrong, this should be an easy two points for us.
 
Detroit wins 7-2, Glendening scores his first (ha!), Nyquist does something amazing, Pav shows us why he was missed so much. 
 
GO WINGS GO!!

Probably my favorite game this season. Every single odd was in Boston's favor toward the middle of the 3rd. If we took it to Vegas we'd be millionaires. 

 

Unbelievable and stunning win, i'm so amped up right now.

I'm actually afraid of what happens when Dats returns soon - I hope the kids just keep plugging and keep trying to be the difference makers rather than deferring to datsyuk.

Put Edzo between the benches just once. I bet both teams shank pucks at him.


Edzo's head won't fit between the benches

Edzo most likely knows he is pissing us off - we are letting him win. I think its time to hit mute. 




#2504447 Dive of the Year

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 01 April 2014 - 08:36 PM

Good lord.

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.

#2504241 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by T.Low on 31 March 2014 - 08:24 PM

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."


#2503515 Injury Updates

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.

So this is what it feels like to play us in the second period.

5 more and we have a healthy lead going into the 3rd.
