  2. Dude, you KILLED IT!!! Have the Tigers called you yet for a try-out? I gotta ask you a question; I'm kicking the tires on getting to a playoff game (gotta convince the Mrs. that we can afford it) and throwing one myself. It's always been on my bucket list, and my time is running out! So the question is, where do you buy the octopi? Again, nice arm! And way to stand there and own it like a total boss! You made us all proud!
  3. Updates: I have now dedicated a page on my website to the jersey design. There's some photos I took during warm-ups from the bench, and a few others as well from during the game. Let me know what you think!

    Looked like Mitch Callahan hurt his arm on the play right before the goal...
  5. Thanks! Glad you like it! I'll be posting updates, as they've promised to keep me in the loop during the design process. And I'll be attending the game, so I'll post some photos.
  6. Hey fellow Wings/Griffs fans, A couple weeks ago, I won the GRG Annual jersey design contest. Let me know what you think of the design. Hope you like it!
  7. Does anyone know what is going on with Dan Cleary's left eye? Not sure if this has been talked about before or not... but I was just watching the pregame show and noticed it more than usual. It looks bad, but then again, I'm no doctor. I'll see if I can find a good (or bad, depending on your point-of-view) picture of it.
  8. Red Wings appear to be out of the hunt for free-agent forward Shane Doan
  9. Sounds familiar. How about this one; I was at the game. 2010 Playoffs. Game 3 against San Jose, trailing 2-0 in the series. Game goes into overtime. Jason Williams, who didn't see a second of ice time in the 3rd period finds himself on a 2-on-1 with Dan Cleary, if I'm not mistaken. In true Jason Williams fashion, he tees up his last slapshot as a Red Wing. It was approximately 3' high and 8' wide of the net. It wrapped around the glass right to Joe Thornton who sent Patrick Marleau in all alone to score the game winning goal.
  10. I have it on good authority that Brandon Prust will be a Red Wing in 2012-13. Take that for what it is, coming from a 26 year-old native of London, Ontario.
  11. Regardless of who is individually better/worse/equal in comparison to 2008, I think it's pretty obvious that the competition is a lot scarier. Dallas and Colorado were both only as good as their hot goalies at the time, and Pittsburgh was young and just learning about what it took. Nashville gave the Wings a good run that year until Detroit figured it out and got into playoff mode. Osgood stood on his head throughout the playoffs and not many Wings had two bad games in a row. I remember actually LIKING Lebda during that run. I guess my point is, if we're going to compare the individual Red Wings of '08 to the Wings of today, let's also take into consideration the 4 (hopefully) teams they may have to face.
  12. It should also be noted, on top of the associations to Nill and being from MI, he played for Blashill at WMU last year.
  13. Going to the game tonight! Taking a sign that says, "Hey Tom! Keep your head up!" I'm hoping Bertuzzi teaches him a thing or two about breaking jaws. Speaking of Bertuzzi... it would be nice to see him get a little mean this year. I loved the TODD BERR TUZZI chants at the Joe last year.
  14. Let me clarify... I didn't start this topic as a means of breaking the news that Eklund is an idiot. I just thought his latest prediction was worth talking about. There's no way Johnson is going to be signed unless they plan on trading 2 players for draft picks, or 3 players for a top 6 forward. I can't see that being in the works, but what do I know? Holland didn't keep extra cap room so that he could sign Johnson to a contract and sit him in the press box for 3 of every 4 games.
  15. Even if he DOES have the inside scoop on some breaking stories, it doesn't excuse this opinion piece. None of his "inside sources" told him about this one. That's straight-up his own opinion that Johnson will make the Wings this year. I hope he's wrong for the 1001st time on this one...
