Wings v. Canucks Open Thread

Submitted by justingoblue on February 23rd, 2012 at 7:30 PM

Puck drops at 7:30ET. At stake is the home streak (going for 24) and sitting alone at the top of the NHL/Western Conference. Two points for the Canucks tonight and they tie us up. Datsyuk is still out tonight, so we need production from elsewhere.

I have some Fat Tire on deck, and that seems to coincide with good performances by the Wings.

On Sunday, February 19, 2012 I received a cease and desist email from an NHL attorney. I have been ordered to stop the unauthorized streaming of NHL copyrighted works. With the recent arrest of a Comstock Park, MI man for copyright infringement, I had to really step back and recognize the risks associated with continuing this site. I am expecting my first child in August, and I cannot go to jail over something like this site. I have made the unfortunate and difficult decision to stop streaming any and all NHL games. I have no plans of moving the site to a new domain or to continue streaming elsewhere. I hope you enjoyed the streams this season, and I am sorry that I can not continue providing this service to you. You can thank the NHL for ruining the party.

Can't start a new thread but theres heavy talk about Jack Johnson being traded to Columbus of all places.  TSN's Bob McKenzie saying deal is potentially JJ and a 1st rounder for Jeff Carter.  Last place id want Jack to go but maybe its the opportunity he needs as a #1 Dman.

Is it just me or is Franzen looking slow and sluggish out there tonight? He didn't leave the zone in time on the 2nd PP and then a weak bump from a Canuck knocks him off the puck.

Wings outshot 17-5, and went 0-3 on the PP. Unfortunately for the Canucks, this is hockey and 1-0 is all that matters so far. Still, though, let's hope for some adjustments.

Reaffirms my belief that the Wings can't stand pat at the deadline. Granted, Datyuk is out, but a right handed point shot would be nice. Hate to say this, but I kinda miss Mikael Samuelsson.
