Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
I briefly considered dressing up in costume for work today, until I remembered it's Monday and I'm typically alone in the office on Mondays. Then I had fun as I imagined what that would look like, with me prancing around the office by myself dressed as a hobbit or superhero or protocol droid or whatever. I would enjoy knowing that when I answered the phone, the person on the other end wouldn't know they were speaking to someone in a ninja turtle costume, for instance. In actuality, I'm wearing a plaid button-down shirt with a black sweater and pretending I'm Liz Lemon without her glasses on. It's almost a costume. Like when you use your green braces to get people to not pinch you on St. Patrick's Day even though you really forgot to wear green...I'm just barely dressing up. But hey, getting the office to myself so I can blast the new Coldplay album while I'm pretending to be Tina Fey = best Halloween ever.

Johan Franzen missed 28. Jonas Gustavsson missed 22. Danny DeKeyser missed 17. Daniel Alfredsson missed 14. Jimmy Howard missed 13. Justin Abdelkader missed 12. The list goes on.Only 27 times did the Wings have both Datsyuk and Zetterberg in the lineup.

Zetterberg played zero games after Feb. 8.At the general managers meeting last month, Columbus Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen tried to put his own injury epidemic in perspective in terms of man-games lost. “One of my colleagues upstairs told me that if you have 400 or 300-and-something, you cheap sale jerseys have no chance of making the playoffs,” he said.Yet wholesale jerseys shop the NFL Jerseys Store Wings made it last season, anyway. The real surprise was that team, not this one. The Wings relied on kids and NFL Jerseys call-ups, particularly Gustav Nyquist, who started the season in the minors because of a logjam and ended up leading the team jerseys store in goals with 28. He scored 23 in 28 games from Jan. 20 to April 2. The Wings also spackled a hole by trading for veteran center David Legwand at the deadline because they didn’t have enough healthy bodies down the middle.
