    So Who Do You Cheer For Now?

    For me now, hockey is no longer an obsession, just an interest I keep tabs on like baseball. I'll always root for the Wings first, but I hope some fresh blood makes it through. I like what Hitchcock has done for St. Louis, and I think they will make it to the WCF and the SCF. I agree that it's an easier loss to take losing to the Preds versus the Sharks (very minimally) because for me the Sharks are classless. All the snowings on Jimmy, the dives, etc. irritate me far worse than losing to a team with a good goalie. The Preds can go far too, but it will be interesting to see how they fare against Phoenix (although they may lull me to sleep with their styles of play) and maybe St. Louis. In the East, I think Boston will make another drive to the finals, trying to defend the cup, but the Rangers may give them a run for their money. Should be interesting either way, just not as much without my boys still in the mix.

    Will Detroit win this series?

    I was at the game last night and on several occasions, I heard various parts of the crowd yelling "Shoot! Shoot it!" myself included. They eventually would but always too late. Last night there were quite a few times, especially in the third where the fans were booing (and not just for Weber). Every time another PP failed, and especially at the end of the game. The team has stated that they did not like being booed off the ice at the end of last season, and that was part of the reason they wanted to up their game at home this year. After the streak, that seemed to go out the window. You would think that hearing it during the last regular season games and during the playoffs would be enough of a trigger to get them going. And not many people left until about the last minute and especially after the third goal last night. In fact, from about 2:47 on in the third, EVERYONE was on their feet for the remaining minutes. That was when they had showed the video montage they always do at the end to "make noise" with clips from different movies. If Detroit can pull out of this, they need to remember that "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Rinne is good but not infallible. If all the shots you are putting on this goalie are from the right and left point, he is going to see it and stop it. In games 1-3, they had some really good chances when all three forwards came in hot and heavy, but stupid things like Hudler never being able to catch a pass on his stick and one time it, prevented that from going any further. That and this damn hold onto the puck and skate the whole perimeter of the offensive zone s*** has to stop. Get traffic in front of Rinne, storm the crease, be there for the rebounds when they come. Their star players need to start pulling their weight and showing why they have these hefty contracts (Franzen, Datsyuk, Filppula). And for God's sake, hustle! Don't stare at the puck when it's two feet in front of you and wait for the Pred player to get and come to you. Get some jump in your step and show that you actually want to be a playoff contender instead of just coasting into the playoffs to add another tick to the tally of consecutive years in the playoffs and then not caring what happens after that. /rant.

    Preds not allowed to play ping pong at Joe Louis Arena

    Bert took it away because Weber hadn't folded down both halves (one side was still vertical) and was reenacting Game 1 using the Zetterberg plush figurine.

    WCQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 3, at Nashville Predators 2

    May I suggest catfish? And Cleary is clearly the bionic man (minus the bionic knees ). I want whatever they're giving him in those shots!

    WCQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 3, at Nashville Predators 2

    Amen x 13! I've had a feeling since the schedule was announced that tonight will be Pavel's night! Amen x 55!! Kronner's ass almost did some damage on Wednesday night. Let's hope he really gets to lay someone out tonight! Go Wings! Let's go streaking again! Say, 16 in a row? :thumbup:

    Kronwall Destroys Voracek

    I looked the rule up again too just after the hit, and I agree with your reasoning. On first look, I would've said it was suspension-worthy. But after watching the different replays, you can clearly see Voroacek look up and see Kronwall a second before the hit, then he puts his head back down. I believe that he holds a share of the responsibility of this hit because rather than leaving himself in a vulnerable position after seeing Kronwall, he could have tried to veer away from the boards or not put his head back down and forward. Kronwall delivered a devastating hit, but a clean one--he didn't leave his feet, he didn't use his elbow or stick. Could he have let up? Maybe. But I agree with Murph and Stuart when they said don't you think the opposing team's coaching staff would warn their wingers to keep their heads up when Kronwall is in their zone along the boards? Especially since these Kronwall hits are not a new trend and are pretty publicized. It will definitely be reviewed, but I don't think (or at least hope) it won't be a suspension for Kronwall. If it is, that just opens it up for players to abuse the rule.

    Bethann Salei: Her heart goes on

    Thank you for sharing this article. I think about Bethann from time to time and pray for her and the kids. I know Ruslan was only with the Wings for 1 year, but I wish the Red Wings would have honored him and Stephan Liv with Brad too.

    2/17 GDT : Predators 1 at Red Wings 2

    As soon as we lost control of that puck, I couldn't help but flashback to the 11/21/10 game vs. Calgary. Thank you, Pavel, for recreating that night minus overtime and the +1 for the Preds.

    what should our 2013 winter classic jersey look like

    I really like the look of that one too. With the WC logo and the Winged Wheels on the shoulders, it would be great. I wonder how the names and numbers on the back would look?

    Taylor Hall cut by skate over eye

    Well, he did keep asking Corey Potter if he was related to Harry Potter. And in turn, he ends up with the HP scar. In all seriousness, hope he does okay and it heals well for him.

    1/19 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Coyotes 2 (SO)

    Me too, Loo. We better fix our power play. We maintain pressure, but we don't do much with it.

    1/17 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Dallas Stars 2 (SO)

    Murph on NHL 36 after Ken mentioned the crew following Lids to the hotel last night: "With all 3 or 4 of them sharing a bed. Must have been crowded."

    1/16 GDT : Sabres 0 at Red Wings 5

    Yeah, I saw him . . . in the box, all night long! I was at the game, and it seems like most of the GDTers were too. (Nine pages?) Got to see the first three goals up close, real beauties. Sad that Miller got pulled in the second, but it was a tough game for the Sabres. They had jump in the first half of the 1st, but they slowly started to lose it after the first goal and definitely after the 2nd and 3rd coming late in the period. Way to go Wings on the 15th win, Pavel's 700th point, and Jimmy's shutout!

    Lidstrom and Perry in Honda Commercial

    Nothing against Nick, but it would have been great to have Pavel in this commercial.

    Kronwall and Stuart may be hitting a lot less now

    First, I don't understand why this post has not been merged with the other relevant posts or why it is worth pinning. Hardly any of the comments discuss the topic of the post which is the future of hits by Stuart or Kronwall, not the Fistric hit or past hits by Stuart or Kronwall. Saying that, while I love to see great (but legal) hits by these two, if they are dwindling on hits in exchange for more focus on improving their defense, offense, or "goaltending," that is an exchange I'm fine with seeing.

    Will be there tonight in 118 by the glass. Give me a lot of reasons to stand up and cheer, Wings! Go Wings!!

    11/11 GDT: Oilers 0 at Red Wings 3

    As of Wednesday night, at the Toast of Hockeytown, they were, unless they have shaved since then.

    11/11 GDT: Oilers 0 at Red Wings 3

    Actually, quite a few of the guys are: Zetterberg, Franzen, Commodore, Conklin, Emmerton, White, and Kronwall are (although some are "lighter" than others).

    11/3 GDT: Flames 4 at Red Wings 1

    Well (knock on wood), I have a perfect record so far this season of wins when I go to the games, so here's to me being added to the pile of lucky charms. Play the game, play simple, and the goals will come. Don't overthink things, don't try too hard or try to be "cute." Go Wings!

    Eaves needs to be in every game

    I agree. I think Eaves needs to dress every night. I don't think that Homer should be in the rotation for who's a healthy scratch UNLESS Babcock insists on keeping him on the fourth line. If he plays with Pavel and/or Zetterberg and he is regularly used on the PP, then he needs to play every night. But he has no chemistry on the fourth line, and in that case, switch him out for someone else that might click better.

    10/15 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Wild 2 (OT)

    Me too. There is just a hum about this team so far this year. They really do seem to be enjoying playing, and a new sense of energy has definitely seeped into this team with the addition of some younger/newer blood.
