It's not the Arby's Curse - it's the Arby's Conspiracy...

Some scattered thoughts (since lately that's all I seem to be having) on tonight's game:
  • Clearly the Red Wings need to sign Darren Helm for 2384873 bajillion years. And then start cloning him so he'll never get injured and never age. Games like this are why Lindsay's sacrificing the first two days of her spring break to own him as a bobblehead.
  • Over on the other end of the spectrum, Dear Todd Bertuzzi: don't ever do that again. I mean the entire game. Don't ever have a game like that again. Go back to surprising everyone with timely goals and intelligent plays. Please.
  • That goal by Datsyuk was the most spectacularly beautiful thing I think I've ever seen.
  • Someone in the organization made a swanky deal with Arby's didn't they? A deal which would prevent hat tricks while allowing for a ridiculous amount of advertisement. Today Darren Helm went along with it. Just like the whole club's gone along with it for the better part of two seasons. Everyone except Henrik Zetterberg.
  • Which is why I love Henrik Zetterberg. Because Henrik Zetterberg fights The Man.

Seems like Arby's would profit more from a hat-trick. Gets more customers in the store to spend more money.

1. Give away $.12 fry.
2. Sell $5 RBS to go w/ $.12 fry
3. ????
4. Profit!

Z just wanted a new hat and some free fries.
