The Red Wings may be down yet another player tonight when they host the Chicago Blackhawks.

Brian Rafalski skipped the morning skate with flu-like symptoms and Jakub Kindl has been called up from the Grand Rapids Griffins. should Rafalski be unavailable tonight, that puts Detroit back at missing nine of their eighteen regular skaters.

That's just painful to think about. Speaking of painful, check this out:

Just over half of TSN's hockey readers think that the NHL lockout was the biggest story of the decade. I'm one of them so I'm not surprised. What I simply can't believe is that nearly a third of voters think that Crosby and Ovechkin are bigger stories than missing an entire season of hockey.

I just don't know what to say to that.

Something to get your mind off of the injury- and disease-ridden Red Wings and the ridiculousness of some hockey fans...

The latest update on the H2H campaign is that $1848.19 has been raised. Over at The Triple Deke, they've made a commercial in support of bringing Herm to Hockeytown.

If that doesn't make you feel at least a little better, you may not have a soul.

So what if we are down nine of our regular 18 skaters... we are less than 10 points out of first place and are still hanging onto a playoff berth. With everything that has happened, you can't say its all bad. Could be worse... Nick could have retired...

So far we are looking pretty good.

I would have liked to have seen Towes and Malts go at it.

Ken talking about the struggles of the Columbus Blue Jackets a couple minutes ago... If the 'Hawks win the division are we going to hear anything about them taking advantage of the weak Central?

It would be interesting to see how the current standings would be if we had our full roster.

Problem is the Wings were playing like sh*t even when they had their full roster.

Makes you wonder what Kenny is going to do at the trade deadline...

Side note: Bullsh*t penalty there!

I can't speak for MD but I know I'll take any player back we can get. Only problem is that Eaves and Miller and Abdelkader have played well and Babs likes May so he's not going anywhere, what do you do with the players that have been filling in?

Solid first period. One or two breakdowns. Not a ton of offense. I'll take it.

Thanks, Mickey, for reminding us that it was a bullsh*t call to give Chicago that power play.

Kindl playing the point on the power play. Holy christ, this team is barely recognizable.

Wonderful! It's like a Christmas miracle.

I haven't seen much because of wrapping presents, but things are not looking good. I just don't want the Wings being shut out again, I don't care if they win or not!


__________

And it's awesome that people donated to get the one guy to a Wings game! If I had money, I would donate, but I don't. I hope it's a great experience for him!
