That's sports in 2016.  It will only get worse with increased sponsorship involvement (e.g. sponsor logos on jerseys, etc.).  I guess i don't really care.  If this helps our ownership continue to remain financially solid and able to provide this team with all the financial backing/resources needed to continue to run one of the best organizations in all of sports....then I'm okay with it.  I do like the above suggestion of just calling it the Caesars Center though.

Please win for Pasha and little crushed by the news of Prince. Absolute legend here in Minnesota. Just win, please.

Terrible and sad news.  Yeah, he's pretty much a ...planet Earth legend as well.

 

Someone queue up "Baby, I'm A Star" for all of the young Wings pregame.  See if that gets anything going.  For any of the younger LGW peeps who weren't around when Prince was in his prime...move on...You might not get it...it's music with artists who play musical instruments.

 

Let's do this tonight Wings...come back home and take it "game by game"!!

IF....IF....we lose on Friday, I'd say it's time to give all of the young guys that we played at times during the regular season but now are refusing the play them, a shot.  Significant minutes.  Give Tampa a different look, give the young guys a chance to turn this around, and most importantly, get them some playoff experience which will be valuable down the road.

 

I'm thinking we'll win on Friday, but IF we lose it's time to start getting long term value out of this series.  I realize we'd be coming back to home ice, only down 0-2, "lots of hockey left", "it takes 4 games to win a series"', "anything can happen", etc... Although much stranger things have happened, I just don't see this team (the team that was on the ice last night) pulling out of a 0-2 hole to go on and win this series.

 

I hope like hell we win, but being realistic.

Our D was horrendous last night (again).  Our D is flat out slow.  We win very, very few races to the corners to battle for pucks.  By the time our D gets to the corner, their forwards have the puck and are making are making plays.  To be even more specific....E was horrible (again) last night.  Constantly out of position.  So slow....and that's a bigger problem because when he is out of position, he can't recover.  Can't clear the puck.  Can't clear anyone out of the front of our net.  Isn't physical.  He's in such bad shape (I think he knows it as well), he provides zero offense.  Not that D are supposed to provide tons of offense, but he doesn't even shoot from the blue line when he's wide open and has a semi clear lane??  Lost in space.  I'm done with him...I wish Blash would be as well.

 

Does anyone remember the Michel Therrien rant from 2006 when he was the Pens head coach....saying "at times I think they are trying to be the worst defensive squad in the league"?  That's pretty much how I feel.  Here's a link for those that want to hear a head coach tell it like it is...http://www.youtube.c...h?v=agL3NHgb8Rk  At the end he jokes about the only physical guy on this team is Talbot "who's about 5 foot 8 or something".
