Okay, the title might contain a little hyperbole. But let's not pretend that this celebration isn't loads of fun.

In case you missed it, the Wings won 5-1 last night over the Boston Bruins in a preseason game. That's fun and all, but the best part was by far this celebration, pulled out after Luke Glendenning put the Wings up 3-1.

Tomas Tatar, man. Tatar continued his hot streak, scoring his third goal in the past two games in the World Cup for team Europe, this one in game one of the WCH final.

Justin Abdelkader's tournament performance doesn't justify his roster spot

Justin Abdelkader scored a goal at the World Cup of Hockey yesterday, against teammate Petr Mrazek, no less. Here, let's watch it:

"Way to go, Mrazek!" - some dude, probably.

As we know, Abdelkader, like a few other players on  wasn't supported by many people to make Team USA. The argument was pretty common:

What's the use in taking him when you could've taken Phil Kessel, Tyler Johnson, or Kyle Okposo? What did Abdelkader bring that a more talented, consistent scorer couldn't?

Yesterday, a sizeable contingent of the Red Wings fanbase popped up defending Abdelkader's performance. 

And, despite Abdelkader scoring one of USA's five goals over three games in the tournament, the move still doesn't make any sense, and isn't justifiable, despite the fact that Abdelkader had a respectable enough tournament, when the majority of the rest of his team, well, didn't.
