  1. please no lockout, I need hockey in the fall

  2. PS

    Here's to hoping the Wings comeback in the series. Pearl Harbor reference.
  3. Some photos of me, GO WINGS!!!!
  4. taking a break from facebook for a while

  5. Aww I hope you feel better Matt!
  6. We have had Howard in for all of the first round and 3 games in the 2nd. Putting Ozzy in on the possibilty of being eliminated is not fair to the team or him. We have to stick with Howard. Howard is still a ROOKIE, he can get better and stay consistently good. Ozzy hasn't played in a while and will have a lot of rust. The Sharks know they can advance to the third round so they will be playing their hearts out Game 4 and it would be embarassing to lose like 7-0 or something. Yes Game 4 is win or go home. The team needs to defend their goalie not depend on the goalie to make ALL the saves.
  7. I understand the move and agree with the commentors, Wings need speed and we don't have much of it. Yes Helm, Filppula have good breakaways. Obviously Zata & Datsyuk are fast. Lilja is great for size yes, but speed not so much. Changing up the lines might give us a spark to help win. It's worth a try.
  8. I'm happy we are getting Hudler back. My only thing I'm questioning is in the playoffs last year he got hurt by Columbus, yes he still played on, but wasn't scoring as much. I know its been a season so hopefully he back to 100%. The whole team had some mysterious injuries they didn't reveal until after the finals were up. Rafalski with the back, Lidstrom, and a few others. Wings need speed and I think Hudler will be good to have back.
  9. I'm amused at this poll, as much as I hate Crosby he has nothing to do with the 2nd round. Now if the wings were playing them in the 2nd round I'd agree. Basically Howard is either hot and lets a lot of goals in. The defense is not playing up to par, the offense needs to score more. After the Olympic break the wings played amazing and earned a spot in the playoffs. It's like they ran out of gas or stopped trying. For all their hard work they should try harder as if every game is the last one they will play. Hindsight, the past few years we've gone far in the playoffs, 19 straight years in the playoffs, championships in 1997, 1998, 2002, 2008. Each team has transition years and I want the wings to win every year, but thats not possible. I'm happy we got to the second round. I'd like us to advance, its been a rough year with injuries, the olympics.
  10. Haha yeah, the U.S. isn't too bad, there is more hockey so thats a plus. Yeah and I just got an Australian hockey jersey for my collection. Hopefully wings comeback and beat the sharks!

  11. Well I'm glad you had such a good time!

    The west coast is a lot more relaxed than the bigger cities like Sydney. It's a great place to live.

    I'm planning a trip out to the states some time after I finish uni. Can't wait to go to a country where people know who Henrik Zetterberg is! haha.

  12. I was on the east coast (Port Fairy, Victoria then went north up to Cains, of course we stopped at Sydney, Fraser Island, Brisbane, and saw the Great Barrier Reef). I really wanna go back and see the west coast some day.

  13. That's good we have him back, hopefully he keeps his contract
  14. Thank you! TeeMan is awesome and making those.

    Which places did you visit exactly?

  15. love your avatar! I went to Australia a couple years ago, GO WINGS!!!
