Game #14 -- Red Wings @ Maple Leafs


I only saw the 3rd period. That was plenty.

J-Will is down for the next several weeks with a broken leg, which leaves us with a lineup of like,

Datsyuk - Zetterberg - Holmstrom
Leino - Helm? - a guy
my neighbor's dog - Christmas tree stand - pointillism drawing of Steven Seagal
uh ...... Tim Taylor?

Should we start a pool for who goes down next? My money is on Homer. He smells rather injury-ish right now. Everything is going his way, after he was written off last year and over the summer, and he's literally like the only guy that hasn't been hobbled by something over the last two months. And it won't be a petty injury either, like a bruise or a tweak -- it's going to be a fractured skull. A puck is going to be shot through the man's head and he is going to die.

Moreover, what in the hell is going on in this league right now? Is there anybody who isn't injured? Half the players are on IR. The other half have swine flu. Pretty soon fans are going to get injured if they keep having to watch Lebda and Ericsson paired together.

What if this doesn't end? Worse yet -- what if Bertuzzi keeps not getting hurt?

God this sucks.

Stevie Y deserved better.


Another injury and yet somehow #44 remains unscathed. You know it is bad when the CBC announcers call you out, "Another horrible job of checking by #44 (except they said his name)." Watching Lebda and Ericsson together is really not good for my health...or the health of my family for that matter.

Five minutes after I post this, Petr Sykora gets sent to the hospital after a hit to the head. Wait -- that one isn't so bad.

Dorian Gray.

He stayed young, but the portrait got older and showed all the impact of his depravity.

Either there is an increasingly-hideous portrait of that thing in the 44 jersey who should have blown out his knee instead of Franzen stashed away somewhere, or he has managed to transfer all the injuries he should have gotten to his teammates.

I'm thinking a human sacrifice is the drastic measure required.

If it doesn't end?

Cam Fowler. Defensemen are awesome.

Plus he would have the nickname "Camshaft" and I want a player with a badass nickname like that.

Without a doubt, the suckiest suck that ever sucked.

Going to see the Griffins play the Jr. Dive today. Maybe they can cheer me up.

To make you feel better, the Penguins are just as bad right now.

Last night Mickey said something like (I didn't get the exact quote) "#44 missed his check". Made me laugh. I wonder if the 'Ol Mickster reads this blog.

Now it's Cam Ward with a lacerated leg from Rick Nash's skate. Still in the hospital. It's not just the number of injuries, it's the length of them + the fact that it's star players, on seemingly every team.

Wow, thanks for that! Pens lost 5-0 to the Fish. I think I actually cracked a smile.

Epic Tyler.

Yes, Hockeychic - "the Stevie" deserved much better.

I'm not sure about your neighbor's dog on the wing. Seems like he should spend more time in GR first.

Leino is next.

Pens lost 5-0? Ah, small comfort but a comfort all the same.

Baroque - I agree, human sacrifice. #44 needs to throw himself into a volcano. I'll give him a push.

I'll take Bugs Bunny in drag as our fourth line centerman. That hare is tough to play against. He's just so damned distracting.

Drew, you go to enough games, might as well start bringing your equipment just in case of injury.
