By the way, thank you for mentioning the PK. As always, Eaves and Miller seem to make themselves invaluable on the PK. Stick tap to the little guy...hard work and determination wins out every time!

Seriously, Z is toying with Toews, it ridiculous how frustrated that dude is. Also, how about Quenneville yelling across the rink at his player in the box (was it shaw cross check at the end of game?), then he gave it to Crawford and told him to go back out in the net, you could see Crawford's shoulders drop as he skated back out. No matter what kind of death stare Babs gives his players, he never belittles them on the bench...totally unprofessional on Quenneville. Really what do you expect from someone who came from Colorado? I said at the beginning of the playoffs that my dream scenario would be for the Wings to end their tenure in the West by beating Anaheim, then Chicago, then San Jose, then Pittsburgh in the finals to take the cup...keep it up Wings, make it happen! LGRW
@marti783 @Reddy Yeah, I almost feel at times like that line is a more skilled third line...I say that because I feel like Z's defensiveness matched with Cleary and Fil's lack of offense adds up to basically a shut down line. It's worked great agianst Toews, but I would love to see Z back on a scoring line. Whatever Babs is doing, keep it up, lets send those (insert hockey team who has gained fans and high draft picks by failing miserably in the last 5-10 years) home crying! Not sure if I want to see Brunner back on the top line, he belongs there at the start of next season, but something is working on the third line and I don't like change anything, we are winning. Is it me or are the Red Wings winning with a young roster and riding a hot goalie! In 20+ years, I never thought I would say those things about the wings...bring on a new era in Detroit! LGRW!!!
P.S. How F'ked up is it that there a 25 outdoor games next year? *Lame (F - Anaheim, have fun skating on water)

In terms of a 2+-year deal, because I just don't see him signing a 1-year deal, I have been thinking since before July 1st that we should try to get him for somewhere between 5-5.5 mill., but honestly, I don't think he is going to sign for less than 6 mill. Hopefully Kenny can work some magic though (which is long past due this Summer).

I don't think he will win as a defenseman, but hopefully he has a better year than his buddy over in Edmonton, ("the great") Justin Schultz.

Longest web link ever = total fail. sorry.

He's gonna need at least 3.5 mill. to buy all those exra diapers for Nathan Jr.
I'm trying to be as open-minded as I can about the Parise/Suter decision to sign with the Wild, but I seriuosly think they both made a bad choice. Obviously, adding both of them adds some depth to that team, but I can't see them winning anything major anytime soon (although secretly I would love to see them make it to the wcf, only to be swept by Detroit). I could be wrong, I don't follow Minn. very closely.
Also, Ryan Suter...really? You really felt the most important thing for your career was to play in a small market? Really? What a f*cking idiot!

Can't wait to see what kind of magic Kenny and crew can pull off today! Still hoping to see Suter and Parise in Red and White! LGRW!!

It's funny, I just went from thinking Justin Schultz could be the next great Red Wing FA pickup to completely hating him. I wonder if I could do the opposite for Shane Doan. I doubt it...not with that ugly face!
1 year, 8 months ago on Shane Doan In A Red Wings Jersey: I Like It | June
I really don't think he can replace Bert, but he IS good in front of the net and the wings happen to have a net front man who is a potential retiree...he could replace some of those numbers.

That's funny, when I saw this write up I thought of last year's post. I posted a reply, but really my superstitions haven't changed, same cup year practice jersey, same planters peanuts (although I must eat the first handful at the same moment the puck drops), same avoidance of certain friend during playoffs.
I do have one new thing though, but it's not really a superstition. I have a friend who has been staying with me, not a hockey fan, but I force him to watch all the games. Whenever anything significant happens revolving around Pekka Rinne (RW goal, big save, etc.) we both chant, "pecker weenie! pecker weenie!". I have my friend to thank for that one, brilliant!

P.S. Please let Helm's injury be non-serious and get him back for game 2.
P.S.S. Thanks to Philly for coming back late in the game and completely pwning rosby and the penguins.
First: Shanny has got to give Weber at least one game for that blatant attempt to injure Z.
Second: Could Brian Engblom possibly say "up the gut" more times in one game?
Game 2: LGRW!!!
Underrated: Bert - I thought about voting for Kronner, but he has been getting quite a bit of attention for his play this season, so I think Bert is more underrated (especially for his shootout goals!).
Best goal: I really wanted to vote for Homer's goal, because it is a thing of beauty (the passing, I mean), but I remember the Pav goal at the end of the game and I freaked out...and since it's against Nashville (I want to see more of this) I gave it my vote.
Most Improved: I wanted to give this to Miller, but similar to Huds, Miller has always had the skill and shown flashes of it in previous seasons, but Fil just took things to a different level this year, he gets my vote!
Hustle: Obviously Helmer, but if it would have been a grit or dependable player award, it would have gone to Stewey for sure.
MVP: This is a tough one! How do you choose between Lidstrom, Howie, Pav, and Z? I decided on either Howie or Pav, with my the final vote going to Pav, he just has the ability to change the game when he is on the ice, ngiht in, night out.

@NOHS DrewThanks pre-Nutty Professor Eddie Murphy, I can always count on you to set things straight!

*their (Look at me, making fun of Nashville fans and I'm the illiterate one...but seriously, in the face!)
Not getting Helmer back for the first round...that's a paddlin'! Listening to fans do there terrible post goal redneck southern drawl chant after bubba scores...worse than a paddlin', it makes me want to shoot myself in the face! Please keep those to a minimum...LGRW!!
