Wings vs. Blue Jackets GP...

Hey there sunshines, look what Santa brought:

It's a belated Christmas present for all the good little Wings fans out there. He plays hockey and can tell you all kinds of hair-styling secrets. Some assembly required.

1. How will Fabio Filppula look in his glorious return to the Wings’ lineup? Being able to welcome an injured Wing back to the lineup feels kind of strange. I’ve forgotten how to be happy about hockey-related matters.
2. I haven’t seen the Wings score a goal in 12 days. While I realize that I may have missed a few while I was out living it up in the hockey wasteland that is Florida (Seriously, ESPN, it would kill you to show a game highlight here or there?), it’s still been an awful long time since the Wings put a puck in the net. By the end of the game on Wednesday, I had stopped caring if they won, I was just hoping for a goal. And that makes me sad. So, will the boys find the back of the net tonight?
3. I’m told that Datsyuk put on quite a show while I was out of contact with reality. Will we get to see some more of his magic tonight?
4. When is Nick Lidstrom going to score a goal again? It’s been the better part of a decade since he put one in the net, and I’m going to copy/paste this into every GP until he does. (As promised, copy/pasted from the last GP I wrote, which I’m pretty sure was right around the same time Lidstrom scored.)

After being off of the computer for pretty much the last 10 days (instead of my usual 8-10 hours per day on it), typing actually feels weird. I also have absolutely no idea what’s going on in the Wings world. I hope my mad Photoshopping skills make up for my lack of insight.


  1. 2. Hockey wasteland Florida. Why do they have two teams there anyway?
    4. I really, really, REALLY hope Lids scores too.
