Hey gang.· I've been away for a while...but I won't bore you to tears with details of my move behind enemy lines to the Windy City. However, I will say that in the grand scheme of things, this location and the timeliness of it has to be a 9.5 on the irony scale - moving me to the city of people I hate the most just a few months after their team borrowed the Stanley Cup from Detroit.
But on to more important things and enjoyable things...like how Detroit has been playing in my blogging absence.
Fact #1: Detroit is first in the Central Division (for starters).· Yeah, I've been throwing that in the face of any Hawks fan that tries to rub their SC Championship in my face.· "How's your team doing THIS year? Oh...that's right...they are THE model of un-sustainable success."· Ah, there I go getting back into Chicago talk when we're here to talk about Denver...it's been a long time stewing (venting about Chicago).
Fact #2: Detroit is first in the Western Conference in Goals For amongst teams that haven't already played half of their season (like Chicago).· None of the other teams in the West that have played 15 games has more.
Fact #3: Only St. Louis has allowed fewer goals than Detroit thus far in the West.· I said it before and I'll say it again - if Jimmy Howard can play even close to the level he was at last year when he carried a banged-up squad into the play-offs, Detroit will run over the competition when it's all said and done this year.
Anyway - I'm trying to get back into the swing of this writing scene, and what better way than an old "Kick 'Em When They're Down" post when it's against a former rival that is just a shadow of its former formidable self.· The Avs are banged up and their organ-i-zation is about as deep as a puddle.· When it's big news that Adamn Foote is returning to your lineup, you shouldn't be surprised that your 11th in the Conference. Let's go to the comments:
First, let us all remember why it's still fun to beat up on Denver...because they have fans that post things like this:

Anything is better then watching that Cunt hair tearing us up.

Ah...it always amuses me to be so hated by a team so irrelevant.· This is team is still paying the karma piper for that hit on Draper.
The End....for now.
