Valentine’s Day is upon us once more, or as I call it because of The Simpsons, Love Day. I wait every year for someone to give me a Lord Huggington bear, but I only ever get Sir Loves-A-Lot (and I don’t care that it’s the same basic bear).

I’ve given up on going to various Hallmarks and sports stores looking for Detroit Red Wings Valentines cards to give to my fiancee. Such things don’t seem to exist. So I started this tradition over at Livejournal in 2010 and did some new ones last year here at OT.

It’s hard for us hockey fans to express ourselves sometimes. Unless it’s about something in a game when we’re screaming at our televisions, we don’t always express ourselves in the best way (and the screaming at the TV really isn’t the best way either).

There are no terrible puns this year (okay maybe the Jurco one…that was Peter’s idea), but there are quite a few that I absolutely love and may just have to give to my fiancee. Enjoy!

Because we’ve had so many players on the IR this year… this could theoretically be pretty much any player, but I settled on Franzen…and Bertuzzi
