    Eric Nystrom on waivers

    Could we get his father instead?

    NHL will Look into Fighting: Shanahan

    On a slightly different tack - I wouldn't be unhappy if there was less fighting in the NHL. I subscribe to on youtube, and frankly find most of the fights that come up to be dull and boring. All of this bobbing and weaving and jabbing with the hand used to tie up the opponents jersey is plain boring, especially when it is staged (i.e. not the result of a controversial hit etc.). For every ten recent fights I watch on youtube, I consider about one or two to have entertainment value. You rarely see people stick their chin out and engage in a punch-in-the-face contest anymore. Where am I going with this? Nowhere else than a joking suggestion to Brendan Shanahan to suspend people for not engaging in entertaining fights. P.S. If you're looking for 'entertainment', check out some of the videos uploaded onto youtube by one 'Humpzilla'. He has some classics.

    Red Wing's Wine

    I'll stick to my Château Petrus and Romanée-Conti. Just kidding - though I'm always wary of 'celebrity' type wines - they tend to not be very good as well as being overpriced.

    Datsyuk wins Kharlamov Trophy

    The Swedes have a similar award named the Viking Trophy. Good for Pasha.

    Custom shirts: Viva la Octolution!

    One point by a pedantic polyglot... Instead of Viva la Octolution, to properly follow the Spanish I would propose "Viva la octolución". They look great!

    WCQF Game 2 GDT: Coyotes 3 at Red Wings 4

    Octopi? The correct plural forms are octopuses or octopodes. Octopi is a fake plural form by someone who thought that octopus was a second declension Latin noun. It's originally a Greek word, and as far as declensions go it is treated as a third declension noun and the Latin plural is therefore octopodes (following the Greek plural form)... Go Wings!

    Why I don't want to play LA in the first round

    You both beat me to it... I think if there was a replay showing it from another angle (e.g. side-on) it wouldn't look quite as weird.
  9. Maybe one of these guys (like the guy at the bottom) could become commissioner:

    Tampa Bay Lightning unveil new logo / jersey

    It looks like Detroit won't be the only team with a two-colour jersey next year...

    Red Wings Skills Contest

    Shame that Sammy is no longer here to claim the sniping award.
  12. Yes, but Franzén actually does score in the playoffs... Didn't see Emmerton's game, but Mursak looked good.

    Finding old games

    You can download some old games from For instance, I know that they have game 4 of the 1998 finals. Better than nothing. It would be great to have more though (digitalize your tapes!).
  14. But we will forgive him as soon as he starts scoring this post-season...

    We need an Irishmen on the team....

    Re Brett Lebda - playing for Notre Dame doesn't make one Irish. We'll just have to wait for Callahan and Sheahan. Life is tough...
