  1. In the articles he says he will play #2 if the team is a contender. Now the question is what does Holland do if he wants Marty to take that next step. I think it comes down to picking up an O Dman, if we can get a sniper FA on the cheap (I know pipe dream) and the kids remaining hot.
  2. I know I have seen a lot of posters saying they want another year for Mrazek to gain some more seasoning before he becomes a backup. Anyone willing to take this "goodbye tour" at the right price or think it would be too much of a distraction with every away game being "bye bye Brodeur? Matt Hutter thinks so
  3. I debated making the 3 hour trek last night hoping I would bring the magic from March 20th when I was last there, glad I didn't go to see that display of "franzenesque don't give a s***" play. I have never turned off a Red Wings game mid-game but I was severely tested last night. Last season I had the position at least the kids are going to get 4 games of experience when we entered the playoffs. This season I still am thankful for the seasoning they will get but I want more, I want to have my wife and I sitting on separate sides of the living room as we beat the flightless birds senseless in the conference finals. And most of all I want the Wings to play like they give a damn and make all their scrapping to get into the playoffs worth it.
  4. There is actually a trending #wearethe5thline by some BJ fan in anticipation for the playoffs. Shirts and such are being made and sold here in Central Ohio. I am also of the CBJ cheering group and unless they meet the Wings will be cheering for them. This of course does not bode well for my marriage to the Pens fan. Oh well go BJ's.
  5. I can see it now people bringing in goose calls like the train whistles for Tootoo.
  6. I predicted the finish of the three other teams realistically in the race and believe the number to beat is 88, meaning in the next 7 games we need 4 points or better. I predict the following outcomes to the following games Caps; vs Stars - L @ Devils- W @ NYI- W @ Blues- L @ Hurricanes- W vs Hawks- L vs Lightning- OTL Leafs: vs Flames - W vs Bruins- L vs Jets- OTL @ Lightning- L @ Panthers- W @ Senators- W Jackets: vs Avs- OTL @ Flyers- W vs Hawks- OTL vs NYI- W vs PHX- L @ Stars- W @ Lightning- L @ Panthers- W Devils: vs Panthers- W @Sabres- W vs Capitals- L @Hurricanes-W vs Flames- OTL @Senators- L vs Islanders- W vs Bruins- L Senators: vs Hurricanes- OTL vs Islanders- W vs Canadiens- L @Rangers- L @Islanders- W vs Devils- W vs Leafs- L @Penguins- W Hurricanes: @Senators- W @Penguins- L vs Stars- L vs Devils- L @Rangers- L vs Capitals- OTL @Red Wings- ? @Flyers- W With these predictions the following is how the teams around us will finish up. CBJ- 92 Caps- 88 TOR- 87 NJ-86 OTT- 85 Car- 80
  7. My apologies in advance I have no desire to wade through the 42 pages from last night to see if this was answered there. I was at the game last night but magically the ref's mike cut after saying the puck entered the net after the net was off its moorings so I didn't hear the explanation. My, presumably mistaken understanding, was if it is completely off its moorings than a goal that enters after doesn't count. Was this a bad call or am I mistaken on the rule. Just a little curious and bugged that I don't understand why it was called a good goal. Thanks in advance for responses. LGW

    Blessed to get to go to this one. Hopefully the boys in red bring death and destruction to Columbus and the insects. Would love to see both CBJ and Det make the playoffs (sorry Toronto, you suck) but not at the expense of Detroit so CBJ can win out after we blow em away tonight. LGW
  9. I have lived through two SCF with my now wife (at that time Fiancee) with us playing Pitt. We barely survived Thursday, unless the trip to the Cup Finals were on the line I would prefer to not play Pitt. On a random side note, we were seated next to Bert's wife on Thursday and she is about the sweetest woman I have ever met. Also got exceptionally into the game and was high fiving me with every score.

    Making the pilgrimage to this one from Central Ohio with my misguided pens fan wife. Per her request we wiill be rocking the customized jerseys with our last names on them (least I have the winged wheel on my chest) behind the goal in Section 115. Here is hoping that the boys in Red deal death and destruction to the flightless birds, that I see the red light come on in front of me in periods 1 and 3 (while it appears broken in period 2) and I have a happy drive home as my wife sleeps off a stinging loss. LGW
  11. To hear Tavares speak I doubt Moulson would have wanted to go anywhere. It sounds like they were fairly close given that Tavares is godfather to Moulson's kid. I still think that Buffalo wins this deal by getting the picks, of course as someone who lives in Ohio I can say the Browns have had good picks and still suck so you gotta do the right thing with those picks and have a good farm/development system along with a little luck that someone doesnt have a catastrophic injury/accident a la Vladdy. Sorry forgot the link
  12. 6'5 here, maybe 225 if its after the candy/food rich holidays and I HATE airline, and stadium seating as my legs kill when all is said and done. I also detest drunks who purposely spill every imaginable thing on my 5'4 petite wife because she has the audacity to cheer for the team to the East that rhymes with Mittsburgh which she adopted because it was her deceased grandpa's team. Aside from her being a bit misguided she did nothing to deserve a beer and hot dog with all the fixings shower. Add to that we are from Central Ohio and drive to and from the games on game night and god forbid if we are pulled over as the car because of her being doused with beer reeked of alcohol.
  13. This is the disrespectful clown from the last time we met in the playoffs. I believe we remember this I think its about time that we have Mr. Tootoo pencil Mr. McLeod in for a clock cleaning in Detroit on March 6th. Maybe invite a full house to witness it too.
  14. Gretzky now or Gretzky circa 1980's? Can we trade Mule for Gretzky's daughter?
  15. Go back in time and show KH the quote from franzen about not being a scorer and then hold him at gunpoint while he re-signs Hossa instead.
