  2. The L.A. Kings: One and Done or Dynasty?

    The thing they're missing is veteran leadership. The team is young. I expect their hangover will be longer than most because there won't be a guy in the room with clout to get the team back to working. Figure they back into the playoffs next season and never really get on the roll like they did this season. Really, as has been said, the parity in the league is going to make for a lot more "streaky" champions than "powerhouse" champions. You're going to see some teams that are in contention every year but don't necessarily win (like our Wings). LA might have the core in place to move into that group.
  3. Trade Zets /Dats and Franzen

    Puck tape? Ah-HA! That's how the Preds are beating us. Bastards are putting tape on the pucks!

    So, that's all 3 for Kopecky, straight up? Which side has to throw in the obligatory bag of practice pucks? It's not a true internet forum trade unless somebody is giving up a bag of pucks or a roll of stick tape.
  5. Nyquist in game 2

    This is the problem with the Wings' "overripe" approach. Emmerton has shown enough that they want to hang on to him, but they waited until he was completely out of minors eligibility to find out. They need to let a prospect go thru his rookie growing pains while they've still got options. Otherwise, you discover a kid's a borderline NHLer but you're stuck keeping him on the big league roster because you'll lose him on waivers.
  6. Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

    I hate it when I'm right.
  7. Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

    We actually think Bettman will allow one of his southern expansion teams to lose a key player? Against Detroit? Not a chance. Weber gets a fine, a "strongly worded" public admonishment, and a quiet handshake from Bettman when nobody's looking.
  8. Darren Helm out for playoffs with lacerated wrist

    Which means that, at best, he's got severed muscle. I'd say done for the series, if not for the entire playoffs.
  9. April 2012 Schedule Wallpaper Now Available!

    As always, thanks for taking the time to do these.
  10. 12/4 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Avalanche 4

    Hey folks, usually listen to online radio stream from 97.1, but they're doing the Lions game. Is there another station that will pick up the radio coverage?
  11. 20 Game Suspension in OHL

    The first clip and the second clip aren't the same incident. din758 is reacting to the second clip. For my part, the suspension seems very long. I could see the guy getting tossed since he clearly left his feet for the hit, but I don't see any elbows flying (admittedly, the video isn't great) and the puck was in the neighborhood. edit- after a few more views, I'm not even sure the guy left his feet for the hit. He might have "hopped" just before taking a shoulder right in the stomach.
  12. Vladdy artwork exhibition in Royal Oak

    Looking at the two paintings shown in the second link, I've got to say that Vlady ain't half bad as an artist. Definitely inspirational.
  13. NHL Center Ice

    Not sure why I didn't think of that. Thanks!
  14. NHL Center Ice

    Speaking of, is there an easy way to tell which channel is the Detroit feed (I'm getting it thru DirectTV if that matters)? Since the guide shows 2 channels (actually 3 counting the HD) for the game, I want to make sure I don't record a bunch of Ottawa slappies. Sorry if this is a stupid question, this is my first opportunity to tinker with Center Ice.
  15. The Official NHL Suspension Thread

    The Shanny clip is up at NHL.com. The Leaf is out for the remainder of preseason plus 2 regular season games. TSN must have pooched their report.
