I'm too busy to make a new one atm. Fortunately we play Tampa again, so I can reuse this one I made last year :

Wow. Datsyuk will always be my favorite Wing. I don't know what the team is gonna do without him.

Those "you signed that contract, fulfill it" people make me wonder...what do you think, that slavery is still allowed? If he wants to go, and for good reason, while leaving the money on the table, then let him go. Everyone of us in every regular job can do the same. There isn't even a substantial approach for criticism. Not even that stupid "over 35"-rule, because he would agree to have his contract traded to help the team. If Holland is insane enough not to trade it, the blame is on him, not Pavel.


If he goes back to Russia, and it appears so, it shouldn't change our appreciation for him one bit. Just read that article...

Is it me, or has Abby been kinda quiet lately?  Of course, they've all tailed off, Larkin, Mraz, even Dats.


Please score more than one goal.  The point is not to preserve the dubious record of no blanks for the season -- the point is to win.  Play to win, don't play not to lose, OK?  It's getting a bit too late to hope for a turnaround, the time is actually now.   Don't hang your goalies out to dry (again) with no support.  I am pretty much begging at this point.


Hoping that the fact the FSD has this broadcast means NHL.tv or whatever they call the newly corrupted former "Gamecenter" doesn't black out this game, too.  I haven't seen a game on my paid subscription since January, between NHL Network hijacking games and other arcane excuses for not broadcasting the Wings games.  Sigh....



#2656517 Uh oh... Coreau called up... Mrazek injured?

:lol: Could you have imagined the grand scale of speculation if this call up was released BEFORE 3pm? HOLY CRAP!

That doesn't even look like Eaves with that beard. 


Just imagine him in Detroit still with Zetterberg and Quincey, we'd have the best bearded trio in the league.

#2645455 12/31 NYE GDT : Pittsburgh Penguins at Red Wings, 6:00 EST

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 01 January 2016 - 07:39 PM

So after driving 4.5 hours to get to Detroit and see my Wings play, ironically enough, my hometown team, I get to see them play well for about 20 minutes before crapping the bed.  Is there a reason we're paying Mike Green $6 mil to play on the second PP unit?  Z looks a little slow out there.  Neither goalie apparently wants to be the starter.  Did Brad Richards forget how to pass softly?  Its like he's trying to break his teammates sticks with his passing.  Thank God Larkin made the team.  


However, problems with the Wings play aside, I had the most AMAZING night ever at the Joe!  Anyone that was at the game last night, got to see a good portion of my family.  First, the dance off between the brother and sister during the 2nd period were MY KIDS!




And then second, the woman on the zamboni during the second intermission, the "First Lady of Hockeytown", was my wife, Maria.  Thus, the reason why they played "Maria" from the West Side Story.  10 years ago we were at the Joe for the New Years Eve Wings game and I asked her to marry me.




Both were kind of spur of the moment things that just sort of happened.  My kids were randomly selected for the dance off and then whomever was supposed to go on the second zamboni with the guy dressed as Abe Lincoln didn't show, so my wife, who was already down there with the kids was like, "I'll do it!!"  I was absolutely floored!  We won 3 practice pucks, 4 gift cards for Massage Green Spa and a $25 merchandise gift certificate.  




Since we don't live in Detroit and don't have a Massage Green Spa near us, my wife was just going around Detroit last night and today just handing them out to people. lol  She felt bad that I didn't get the ride on the zamboni (I totally didn't care, I loved seeing her out there, plus NOW she's a big Wings fan) and gave me the certificate, so I got a sweet Stadium Series Abdelkader t-shirt.  So despite the unfortunate play of our guys, it was a pretty unforgettable night for our family.
