  1. Hey old friends. Long time no rant. Does anyone know anyone that collects old broadcasts of Wings games? I have a friend that is working on a documentary of the Soviet Red Army hockey team, and they're looking to find all available games from the Russian Five era. They of course already have all the commercially-available ones and have scoured YouTube. Let me know if you have any leads. You can of course feel free to PM me as well. Cheers everyone.
  2. Very proud of our boys. Go Wings.

    What was that about sequels having the same ending? The same goes for derivatives:

    Maybe we'd lay off if you'd stop playing the "Jaws" theme music before your power plays and doing that silly chomp thing. Welcome back btw, FHB. Yeah, I think DLD ran that one into the ground last year. Reminds me of this one I did last year :

    I'm not kook, but...
  9. Have you been working out edi? Actually, the picture answers that question.
  10. oops, eh? I agree with most of what you're saying. And I hate that whether a player is injured or not plays so much into league discipline--the act, not the result, should be what's considered. I just disagree on the last bit: I don't think this hit adds anything to the game, it is one kind of hit known predictably to cause concussions, and it is a hit you can easily categorize and take out of the game.
  11. Should a player have his head down while skating through the neutral zone or receiving a suicide pass? No. Should a player be potentially subject to headaches, dizziness, fatigue, anxiety, memory and attention problems, sleep problems, and irritability for the rest of his life because he does? No way. I don't think you can ever completely take concussions out of the game, but can the league significantly reduce them by identify and eliminating the types of hits, like this one, that cause the bulk of them? Absolutely. If that offends you because it "degrades physicality from the game," there's always UCF.
  12. harold, I'm pretty sure he got penalized for the late, blindside hit to the head on Ruutu, not the clean hit on Ruutu I call BS on this idea that we have to allow hits like this as "part of the game." What if instead of saying Erat got a concussion on that play, we said he got a "life-altering head injury"? Because that's what a concussion is. Players shouldn't be subject to hits that predictably cause concussions, even if they don't look particularly dirty to us because a player doesn't throw an elbow or leave his feet. There are plenty of hits that don't cause concussions that we can keep in the game.

  14. Nice shirts! Who's the douchebag that 1-starred this thread?
