Hmmm, a team build by Brian Burke underperforming.  Where have we seen that before?

A Message from Tatar.

One for my dad. I am so glad I could be a part of Slovak Olympic team. It was a great experience and I have many great memories from Sochi. We didn’t have our best tournament and we are all disappointed as we expected more. Once you are on the top and once you are on the bottom. It is a sport. I am in Detroit already and I am enjoying my couple days off and getting ready to finish the season well. The upcoming schedule looks scary and it is going to be difficult as we have many games in a short period of time and our key players are injured. It is going to be hard without Henrik (40) but I believe I can do it. It would not be good if the Red Wings didn’t get in the playoffs. Keep your fingers crossed, I believe we can do it. Thank you for standing next to us and cheering for us even though it wasn’t ideal at the Olympics.

This is all Quincey's fault.

 

Sammy needs to share some blame as well.

No Captain America, but not bad given the time I was willing to put into it.

I've watched every game alone in my dorm room because nobody else cares enough to wake up at 7:30 to watch a sport they know nothing about.. people on my floor were watching figure skating yesterday during the noon game.
On the news here in Columbus, the anchor said he didn't know who to cheer for in the USA-Russia game because bobrovski was in net for Russia.
I'm surrounded by idiots
LGW is my friend

I doubt Russia and US will be dumping it in without a forecheck and lining up at the blue line. Playing a team that tries to score goals will be a nice change for our forwards

 

Yeah, maybe the mentality will rub off on them.

THAT'S WHY WE SHOULD HAVE SIGNED TATAR INSTEAD OF FRANZEN WHO IS LAZY AND SUCKS

GET IT TOGETHER KENNY

WON'T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN

Olympic hockey is the boobs. I'm thoroughly enjoying myself!

 

I was seriously just thinking the same thing.  I'm having a lot of fun watching these games.  And while I'll be crushed if the USA doesn't bring home the gold, the good thing is that I'll still not feel as terrible as I did at the end of the 2009 playoffs...so there's really no downside.




#2484243 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by freshy on 15 February 2014 - 12:53 PM

Ummm for those that watch the games, yes Micky has been talking about Z not being 100% and that his back has been bothering him. That means yes, he has been the walking wounded.

Z has had a bad back for 2-3 years now. It is not going to get better on its own. HD's don't work that way. he has to have surgery. Period. Even then doesn't mean it fixes things. Just buys time until you have another then another then another. I know lots of people that have had this issue-spent 30 years in construction. Everyone that has one surgery on HD's has another within 5 years. Heck, look at Bert. How long and how many surgeries has he had? Several. Micky Redmond had his career cut short because of his back.

It actually can get "better" (aka less pain & absorption of disk matter) on it's own if given sufficient nutrients & time to heal. Surgery may/may not help with speeding up the process. Evidence is mixed. The problem for Z is that he has an occupation that isn't going to allow for his nervous system to calm down. Back pain is a ***** in that once you have it, your nervous system is centrally sensitized and it is very hard to keep it under control. Our bodies can be cruel in their effort to protect us. Sometimes it thinks the movement of reaching for the shampoo in the shower is a threat & put's people out of commission for a week. Now think about that with Z, a guy getting hacked, whacked, & pushing his body to the limit. For guys like him & Helm it is going to be rough.

I've got a giant man crush on Oshie right now, just think of all the shootouts the Wings would have won if we had him.


#2484228 10 ton elephant in the room.

Posted by 55fan on 15 February 2014 - 11:35 AM

There's no room, and there is certainly no elephant in it.

Would you settle for a box?  There may or may not be a dead cat in it.

 

Sorry.  Nerd break.

I agree that buying out Z is something that will never be discussed by the Powers That Be.  Maybe a thought or two about Mule since they know more about his condition than we do, but I doubt it.

 

Of course, around here, it's kind of dead around the Olympic break.  I guess we need something to keep us off the streets and out of trouble.

Kane would have buried that if this were the Wings.
