Preparing for a minor fan revolt by going to the doctor’s office on Monday

I have a bad feeling that Red Wings fans are going to revolt on Monday, when I expect Lucas Raymond and Joe Veleno to be sent to Grand Rapids (barring injuries on the Red Wings’ roster)…

But I’m not going to be here for all of the fun. I have an appointment with my primary care physician at 1:15 PM, and it takes about half-an-hour to get to Providence Hospital from South Lyon, so I’m going to be gone from approximately 12:45 until somewhere around 3 PM.

That will conflict with tomorrow’s practice (which probably starts at 11 AM) and the submission of the Wings’ final roster by 5 PM EDT, but I’ve got to prioritize my health here, and getting my physical is essential.

So I hope my priorities are correct in deciding to not cancel tomorrow’s appointment. It will be a little bit of an impediment to covering Monday’s practice and/or roster moves, but sometimes you’ve got to get yourself taken care of first.

  1. Hope the doc appt goes well George. If you were GM, what would you do with Veleno and Raymond? I kind of expected them to be sent down as an “asset” protection move with perhaps Smith going on IR depending on what his injury is.

    1. I’d put them down in Grand Rapids to start and worry about the fan fury later, but if someone is injured, I’d see what Raymond could do. That’s just my take.

  2. Take care of yourself first and foremost, to quote Count Rugan from The Princess Bride, “If you haven’t got your health, you haven’t got anything.”

    Besides, we need you healthy too. Who else is going to give us all coverage of and in depth analysis of all things RedWing?
