We're into the small sample size of must-win games which may literally have implications for this year's deep draft.

The Sharks added Raffi Torres at the deadline and are now a much douchier team than they were. The NHL is starting to come around to how much of a dirtbag Marc-Edouard Vlasic is as well. Add in Thornton and Pavelski and there's a lot about this team not to like.

Then there's Brad Stuart. Honestly, until Pleiness posted Ericsson's comments about him, I didn't even think about the possibility that he would be booed upon his return to the Joe. That would kind of confuse me. Stuie did a lot of hard work for the Wings while he was here and got pulled away from Detroit by things bigger than hockey. I just don't want to boo a guy who apparently has his priorities in good order.

It's a live thread. Anything goes unless it doesn't.

Let's go Red Wings!
