    3/7 Zadina Era GDT - Rangers @ Red Wings - 7:30 PM ET

    The last time I saw him, was at that introduction of the 100 greatest, and the only thing he looked like he'd been scouting, was donuts. I do remember reading about him having knee replacement, which I've personally found, makes one seek out donuts for companionship.

    No idea what he's up to. Last I saw him was playing for The Bruins Alumni team, a few years ago. Don't know about him being secret, he just wasn't Bobby Orr, or Montreal's big 3. Though I'd put him as good as any of those 3, and right behind Denis Potvin, in my list of greatest defensemen of the 70's-80's.

    85-86 was the greatest season in 20 years for The Wings. Harry Neale lost the team in the first month, and it took 2 more to fire him. Kocur was already up and he and Randy Ladouceur we're fighting every game. Brad Park talked Jimmy D into bringing up more meat from Adirondack. Probert came up for good. Ron Duguay was a healthy scratch because Park called him a heartless *****. Those were the days. 1986 was the first time The Wings sold out more than 2 games in a row, since their last year in The Big Red Barn. It was really the beginning of the good times to come. Not to mention I was just a youngin' at 31 yers old. Damn I miss those days.

    Nothing wrong with that at all. He's playing a lot like Green did, back when he was a Lidstrom Trophy candidate. Only stronger defensively. It's like his nuts finally dropped while he was down in GR. Maybe he learned a thing or two from McIlwrath.

    In training camp, and in preseason, I thought that Hronek was going to need a few years, because after taking a good hit, he became scared to engage in any physical battles. Since they've brought him back up, it seems like he's gotten over that big hump that looked like it was going to keep him in The AHL for a long time. I like that he's aggressively going after the puck, and learning to use his body to gain position. Saying that, he still needs a lot of work in the defensive end of the ice.

    More reason to keep him healthy for the long run. Play the others injured to devalue their upcoming contracts.

    If he needs an 'A', they can take one from bdelkader.

    Totally agree. Especially if Larkin is still dealing with that oblique issue. No reason to hurt himself more. Let him heal, and get a jump on off season training.

    It's so hard to remember that winning games helps to build character. I really don't mind if they win 2 more games this year. It will be good for the team in the long run.

    Has Nielsen scored this year in the shootout?

    Mantha needs to ******* shoot the puck more. The King was totally cheating him towards the pass on that 2 on 1.

    If we're going to get one point, we might as well get two for #7. LGW, let's get some in the 4rd.

    Mantha didn't do enough to sell himself possibly taking the shot. Lundqvist was already sliding before he passed it.

    That would be a safe bet to say that. And at all levels. He watches a lot of prospect video.

    I know that Jimmy winters in Florida, and that he's said to watch 5-6 hours of hockey per day. Knowing what I do about him, he probably spends very little time with his feet kicked up in a deck chair by the pool. I'd bet he plays golf 4 days a week still. Even sitting still, he's the kind of guy that's always moving. Also remember him being quite the bridge player, I'm sure he finds a game a few days a week, minimum.

    If it's my gf, we're gonna go. If it's my wife, I thank him for making her feel special.

    I'm not so sure that that's what's really going to happen. I do hope that you will get to play golf, and kick tires together, though.

    And I'm still one who believes in Holland. It's a tough room in here.

    They've mastered the art of deflection by watching Holland's interviews.

    Madison and Tyler with the hookup. That's one soft combo.

    LEGEND: Ted Lindsay dead at 93

    He made sure to point that towards Conn Smythe's seat at every game after that. What a badass.
  24. Good thing that condition isn't The Sharks winning The Stanley Cup. We'd never get the 2nd out of them. Also, , we're retaining 30% salary. More Also, I'm not impressed with this deal. Jensen got us a 2nd in roughly the same range of picks. A late 3rd gets us a borderline NHL player, at best.
