I am dreading the commercials that will run before the final game at the Joe. The last season the Tigers were at the Stadium, they ran these great nostalgic tv spots that would turn me into a blubbering mess every time I saw them. This is going to be FAR worse.

Meh. The Joe is a dump. I disagree about there not being a bad seat in the house. I don't really associate the good memories of the Stanley Cup winning teams with the building itself. It's not like the Joe was Olympia or anything.
You think there is a bad seat? I'll bet you a pair of tickets you won't find one seat with an obstructed view, no poles or signs blocking your view of the ice from the nose bleeds to the front row in any section.
Calm down there newf buddy, I didn't praise Dekeyser either. Smith had a few turnovers that were caused by overthinking it, and a couple of plays at the point where he could've put it on net but paused for a second and it was going the other way. I know his reputation your talking about, but that's not me. I like the guy, already said in the GDT I believe he can turn out like Ericsson in the long run, just for now he's a big of a work in progress.
Probably came across as more condescending than I meant to but honestly there is no reason to even bring up his play as bad last night. He created offensive chances and made no real defensive mistakes. The goal he was on the ice for he played it perfectly against a pretty good player and Quincey messed up royally. I've actually seen some people say he was one of the wings better players last night and even had him as a star (I think he was solid but not top 3) the only reason people would be saying anythnig bad about his play is because hes getting the Ericcson treatment where everyone hates on him and watches for one little thing he does wrong. Smith played like a second pair dman last night
Was listenning to the Team 1040 Vancouver tonite on my way to Dairy Queen after the game.(Burrp-excuse me) When they asked which series they would all prefer to watch in Round 2, one of the guys said it wasn't so much as which series, rather which players.
"When it comes to playoff hockey, I have a man crush on Zetterberg and Datsyuk. No one I'd rather watch than those two."
Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord; even so saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labors.
O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of thy servant, and grant an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of thy saints; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, on God, now and for ever. Amen.
And here I thought we could get through this without some pretentious religious crap. I'm sure Rusty's 3 1/2 month old son feels really blessed that god killed his dad.
