And the team is having a great start despite playing some tough teams this month. Are we not allowed to be excited?

Oh yeah, you're one of those who have been predicting doom and gloom. Sorry your predictions have been completely wrong thus far. But not really.


No he's a realist, remember?

What a huge victory. Not only to redeem that last one that the Wings let slip away, but to earn two points against a top team (especially when we didn't play the way we could have for half the game).

Not sure where to put this, so it's going here I guess. Might as well resurrect the lines thread anyway now that we've had 6 games to watch...
 
Spoke to my buddy in Grand Rapids who tends bar. He was serving Callahan the other night and got to talk hockey with him a bit. When asked about Daniel Cleary all Callahan had to say was that the guy sucks lol (who woulda thought?). However, the more interesting thing Callahan said is that the Wings brass told him that he's going to be a regular for the Wings by December at the latest.
 
Take that for what it's worth, but if that's true, someone's getting waived or traded, barring injuries. It also makes me think that this is kind of a "last chance thing" for Nestrasil. Callahan's a bottom 6 grinder type, and probably the guy the wings actually want filling that role, not Nestrasil. This could be Nestys shot at proving he can provide some scoring at the top level, and if he can't by Dec, bye bye. However I could be 100% wrong about all that.


The first time I read this I thought it said Cleary would be a regular by December

Granato ran Pittsburgh's powerplay last year and they were tied for first with Washington with 23.4%. Maybe he should coach both the PP and PK and have whoever's running the PP now go fetch him coffee.

I thought he was in charge of PP
