Thank you for being an uninjurable iron horse this year. You are one of only two Red Wings to play in all 82 games.
Despite all that ice time you still managed to come up only 5th in defensive scoring and 18th in overall team scoring.
You averaged slightly more than 1 boneheaded penalty minute per game (88 minutes in 82 games) - which, coincidentally, is the team high for penalty minutes this year.
Your four goals speak volumes about your inability to find the twine and yet - you never stop trying. Little the Little Kyle That Could - you rank 10th on the team in shots with 106. Your 3.8% shooting percentage actually makes us miss Dan Cleary's 6.3%. Your single GWG must have stirred something down deep that encouraged you like little angel on your shoulder. Every time you touched the puck that little guy could be heard shouting, "SHOOT KYLE, SHOOT! You're good enough, you're smart enough and doggone it, people like you (more than MIKAEL SAMUELSSON)!"
You points production was damn near equal home and away - 6 home and 7 away, but your +/- shows that you really get nervous at the Joe - +6 on the road and -11 at home. You did this all while saying, "Damn the critics! My -5 is a meaningless stat anyway!"
Having said all that, you did spend an average of 30 more seconds on ice in all of the winning games than the losing games - 21:02 vs. 20:35 - so that makes it clear - MOAR QUINCEY = MOAR WINS!
There's still a chance that we get bumped and Pittsburg gets a first round bye. It's called the "Crosby Exemption" and can be enacted by a call from Sidney to Gary on a special pink princess phone in Mario's basement. The exemption would cause Columbus to play the Bruins and the Wings to be instantly eliminated from contention.
That's one of many reasons why you shouldn't be banging on the glass.
Is it still OK to yell at those d-bags on my tv that INSIST on standing up and waving at the camera during Wings games at the Joe?
Half the time, the idiots in question block part of the faceoffs.
Don Cherry showed this and said it served the person right for standing up and blocking the view of other fans. Maybe he has a point, but to me it sounds too much like "this is the etiquette of a hockey game" like they're at the opera. to me relax let people get in to the game. No one in a mosh pit would say "excuse me, sir you're blocking my view."
And yes video funny, and yes me drunk. GO WINGS!!!!!!!
