  1. Strange Red Wings trade rumor video.

    Sounds eerily like an old school Speak and Spell...
  2. Just a random thought... he had some snarl early on but the suspension of 5 games for a preseason headshot may have been more of a setback than many think due to his perceived lack of mental toughness.
  3. The MANtha watch.....

    Been too long since I’ve been on. Huge ups for the Star Blazers mention, I was also a huge Robotech fan back in the day. DBZ was just from my kids watching. obligatory topic return: Mantha is gonna be beastly once he puts everything together. Good start to this season for the most part, but is Blashill going to sour that relationship the way he did with AA?
  4. Ryan Sproul traded for Matt Puempel

    Get him to a pool party, just saiyan.
  5. Ryan Sproul traded for Matt Puempel

    I saw Puempel a few times when he played in Binghamton for the Baby Sens. He was pretty meh as a player, imho,, but was popular with the fan base, FWIW.
  6. 10/13 - Red Wings at Golden Knights - 10:30 PM EST

    This start has been a pleasant surprise. I just watched the highlights, and he boys were looking pretty good. Hank is in beast mode, but we have more than 1 line of players clicking, which bodes well.
  7. 10/13 - Red Wings at Golden Knights - 10:30 PM EST

    If he offers his "introductory stats course" again, can we at least sticky it for everyone's benefit?
  8. 10/13 - Red Wings at Golden Knights - 10:30 PM EST

    Maybe their twitter post got the Zetterbeard just a wee bit fired up.
  9. Disney Buys Star Wars, 3 New Films Coming

    Not a bad theory, though the trailer puts it to doubts. I was saying to friends Luke had gone to the dark side before the first new film because he wasn't in any of the posters or promos. Looking forward to the new film though.
  10. Coyle 's play was dirty. Too much butt hurt over clean hits. Make him pay with another PP goal.
  11. You have momentum, put your skates on their throats and crush them. Do NOT let them back into this game.
  12. Zetterberg! Fear the beard. Great diving play by Daley to stop the rush towards our zone not too much earlier.
  13. My bass rig has more power than the new horn
  14. Great 2nd. Stay strong and bring it home in the 4rd. About time they gave Jimmy some multi-goal run support. Has he looked his average self between the pipes tonight in the first half of the game? I got home at 10:30 if the 2nd.
  15. Pre-Season Games

    Just don't start calling him Ras El Goal.
  16. The 13th F......

    Biggest difference between a one-way and a two-way contract, if I recall correctly, is that on a one-way, the player makes his full NHL salary even if sent down, while for a two-way contract the player makes a lower salary if he is in the AHL.
  17. Andersson leaving the NHL after the Playoffs

    Interesting point about babs leaving. Kind of weird how that seems to be working out.
  18. 2017 NHL China Games

    Surprised you didn't mention Jinder Mahal. With his constant help from the Singh brothers it is almost a team sport.
  19. Andersson leaving the NHL after the Playoffs

    Sorry to hear the guy was hurt. I hope he is able to recover and resume playing, but I concur with your thoughts that it could be career killing. It didn't work out for him with the Wings but I had no ill will towards him. Did you resurrect the thread instead of starting a new one partlly to scare people who didn't check the original post date into thinking Hakan was hanging up his scouting binoculars?
  20. Pre-Season Games

    Mantha is looking good. Nielsen with his 2nd. Beautiful air mail pass to set up that play.
  21. Will Tyler Bertuzzi Make the Team Out of Camp?

    Both. He had an infuriating talent for being on the point on the power play, firing a shot that would have made original trilogy Imperial Stormtroopers seem like Chris Kyle by comparison, then watching the opposing team skate by him unhindered to score a shorthanded goal. He did it frequently on even strength as well, though it wasn't always a goal it was definitely a quality chance. Regarding Bertuzzi, I think he could be an "x-factor" 4th liner - grinder, agitator, but with a surprising pair of hands that makes him a legit threat to score if he takes the puck.
  22. DRW Training Camp 2017

    I thought it was hustle, loyalty, respect? Living in PA and teaching, a road trip to see training camp live isn't in the cards for me, so I am dependent on what folks here can relay plus reading what Malik cuts and pastes with a healthy dose of salt (though I do think, for all his shortcomings, that he does a pretty good job with the training camp and prospect tournament stuff). To those who are able to give info first hand, I thank you once again.
  23. 2018 Detroit Red Wing All-Star(s)

    I think Zetterberg will deserve it but not go due to either making it clear he isn't going to go or having "back spasms". (Though I'd love to see Bettman's reaction if the issue was listed as 'incipient priapism') I agree Tatar is going to have a big season and Martha a very outside shot.
  24. Will Tyler Bertuzzi Make the Team Out of Camp?

    I'd personally put it as there are 8-10 truly elite at any position, and the rest of the #1 whatever are still damn good but never going to get the accolades as he top 8-10. Having Lidstrom as your number one D-man for years is going to inevitably skew one's expectation of number one d-man since the guy is easily top 5 all-time (I would put him 1A and 1B with Bobby Orr personally). For perspective, garbage in my book is Jason F'n Williams.
  25. Will Tyler Bertuzzi Make the Team Out of Camp?

    Interesting term "light-blue chipper". Actually it seems to be a great characterization, nicely done if you are the one who coined it. Chowdog? Lol, giving me Emdog flashbacks. Hopefully it doesn't mean Chowdog is going to be the d-man equivalent of Cory Emmerton. That's getting to be ancient history, only the board vets are going to get that reference. Hopefully JUCK F**KING POTT never fades.
