  2. So will I be getting a refund on the $750 I just paid for my tickets, if that happens? If not, I'm going to have to take a long, hard look at whether I want to devote any of my future time or money to NHL hockey.

    [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

    So how does this affect people with ticket plans/Winter Classic tickets that have already been paid for? Will we get a refund??
  4. So on the map for the big house, it shows a Red Wings side and a Toronto side. But the tickets that are available to me are on the Toronto side. Is it really gonna be split in half and will I find myself in Leaf territory with those seats or is everyone all over the place?

    4/5 GDT : Devils 2 at Red Wings 1

    If they end up tied, the Hawks will have the tie breaker as both teams will have the same number or points, the same ROW, but the Hawks will have more points in the games between the teams. Wings Win in regulation - Wings are 5 seed Game goes to OT - Wings are 5 seed Hawks win in regulation - Wings are 6 seed.

    Quincey vs. Stuart

    Stuart is gone. We can quit debating it. No chance he's back next year.

    Brad Stuart's family issues

    I see almost no chance that Stuie will be a Red Wing come next year. His wife is tugging on the old ball and chain and making him come back to Cali.

    Zetterberg Trade Rumor

    At work today a coworker forwarded me an email he received from a friend who apparently lives next to or near Ken Holland. No idea how reliable this is, but this person claims the Wings are about to trade Zetterberg to Florida for Stephen Weiss and a 2nd round draft pick.
  9. I have a sneaking suspicion we might move Brad Stuart. He's been great, but he's an unrestricted free agent after this year and I've heard his wife has basically told him he has to sign with a West Coast team. Might as well get something for his value before we lose him. Perhaps Stuart and someone else in a deal for Selanne?

    Wings to host NHL Winter Classic within next 2 years

    I'm hoping for Wings vs. Leafs at the Big House, but I think Comerica Park will probably win out. The biggest reason for this is that they can't sell alcohol at Michigan Stadium and that makes up a significant portion of the revenue at any pro sports game.

    Got my Lidstrom jersey back, signed!

    The Goalie's Den in Troy recently had a private Nick Lidstrom signing and I took my Winter Classic jersey over to be signed. Got it back today and it came out great! I'm planning on getting it framed. Does anyone have anywhere they'd suggest for jersey framing that does good work?

    Got my Lidstrom jersey back, signed!

    Nice! I'm absolutely thrilled with how it came out! Now I just need to get it framed so I can show it off!

    Got my Lidstrom jersey back, signed!

    I definitely want to get it professionally done, with UV protective glass and the works. There've gotta be some great places in metro Detroit that do this kind of thing.

    '11 Home Opener

    I'll be there! Section 205, row 5! Can't wait!

    Jersey Framing

    Once I get my Lidstrom jersey back, I'm going to look to get it framed. Are there any places around Metro Detroit you guys would recommend that do really good work?

    Washing my Jerseys

    Is there anything in particular you guys would recommend for washing/pressing a Wings jersey. I'm going to take my Lidstrom jersey up to be signed at the Goalie's Den signing, but I want to make sure it's looking good before I take it as it will get framed shortly after. What would you guys recommend?

    Washing my Jerseys

    It's really not dirty at all, just a bit wrinkly. And the numbers are fine, it's just the bare parts of the jersey that need a little work.

    Hockeyfest Questions

    For those of you who have been before, I have a few questions. 1. How crowded has it been in the past? 2. It starts at 11, but do doors open any earlier than that? 3. Does the Joe allow fans to line up outside to wait ahead of the doors opening? 4. For the autographs, does each player have an individual line or do all of the players for a time frame just sit at one table and you just move down the line and get everyone's signature? 5. Will the souvineer stands be open to purchase items to have signed on top of what I bring with me? Thanks!

    Hockeyfest Questions

    Welp, didn't manage to get Lidstrom's signature, which was a drag, but I did get pucks signed by Kindl, White, Conklin, Howard, Mursak, Zetterberg, Ericsson and Kronwall. Definitely not a bad day!

    Hockeyfest Questions

    Perhaps the big question though, should I have Nick sign in black or red on the number of my winter classic jersey? The number is white.

    Hockeyfest Questions

    Man, ALL I want is my Lidstrom jersey signed! I don't care if I get anyone else's signature. I hope it works out. I'm thinking of getting down there around 8-9 to line up outside in hopes it increases my chances. Also, what's the parking situation like?
  22. So my article about Jimmy Howard and his Shelby Mustang goalie mask is up! Unfortunately, I was really tied up with my other position, so my boss stepped in and did some of the article as well, but all-in-all, still a great experience and I got a by-line from it. Ford Performance Group Please feel free to share it with friends, but please keep it off of Facebook for now. I know there is a tiny typo in the 3rd paragraph and it will be changed soon.

    Spent Monday at the Joe!

    I was lucky enough to get to spend Monday at the Joe, attend practice and meet the guys! I'm writing a story on Jimmy's Shelby Mustang mask and it's Detroit connection and I was able to arrange going down to the Joe, watch practice, interview Jimmy and speak with several of the other guys too. Huds gave me a jab in the stomach when he came into the locker room, haha. Also, as I was walking out, I hear someone walking behind me and I look over my shoulder Nick is right behind me. I introduce myself and mention why I'm there and he's like "Hmm, I guess I never noticed there was a car on his mask, I'm always just looking at the holes in the net, not the goalie" I thought that was pretty funny. All-in-all, it was a fantastic day, everyone was extremely nice and it was really cool seeing the inner workings of the Joe!

    3/28 GDT: Blackhawks 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

    Had a great time in the Legends Club tonight! Got to meet Ted Lindsay and he was SUPER nice! He took a picture with my mom and I and signed a puck for me. All in all, a great night, was pretty disappointed with a few of the calls the wings got against them, but a great night none the less.
