  1. Bad Fans?

    No buddy, same here. We're good.
  2. Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    What about just hoping for him to pick up two more wins?
  3. 3/15 GDT | Detroit Red Wings @ Los Angeles Kings | 10 PM ET

    Yes! Absolutely brilliant!
  4. 3/8 GDT - Vegas @ Detroit - 7:30 PM EST - 10,000 posts for a Victory

    I guess every single one of these postgame interviews increases the chances of Hank not finishing his contract by 1%...
  5. Howard = Average

    I guess I'll call him "Shortside Jimmy" from now on.

    @toby91_ca: Yeah ok, I forgot about the partial package option. That makes it easier and you can be more selective with it. If it does help the franchise with selling out, I'm not so sure. (not talking bout the Leafs, they might sell out no matter what is going on) @Neomaxizoomdweebie: I know about that kind of argumentation, have heard it multiple times over the years, no matter what league is discussed. Question remains...when is it enough? When will people stop spending their money on this? We'll see.

    Yeah, absolutely. Imho that's not just a Detroit problem, or a success thing. Sure, winning teams are at lesser risk of not selling out the arena than losing teams, but there might be another component to it. At some point, the pro leagues might need to consider that the number of games in one season AND the number of timeouts in one game might no longer be tolerated by todays fans. If I was living in the Detroit area, would I consider buying season tickets? NO, absolutely not, and that wouldnt even be about the price. It would be about the fact that it's 82 m...fkin games per season, which means you would have half your evenings every week blocked by games, and if you don't go, you waste money that you've already spent. Make it 60 games, 2 games a week, I'd be much more likely to buy. And every single game would be much more meaningful, too. And if you go to a game (or watch it on TV..), there is how many interruptions for commercials? 20? It's beyond me how all that could happen. If anything in sports would justify the pitchforks, right up the asses of the Goodells, Bettmans and Silvers, it would be this crap. Why do I think this is more of an issue today than it was before? Because with the way this world is developing, all the social media stuff, people just tend to question things more than they did in previous decades, and that's going to continue. And at some point, fans will say "hey, you know what? leave us alone with 120 RS games with 30 commercials, so that you guys can earn another 50% more of your already insane salaries...we don't watch that anymore". At least I hope it will turn out like that...sooner rather than later.
  8. Wings Interested In Resigning Green

    Guess we can bet on rising cap. would be surprising if it doesnt, after Bettman talked about 78-82 for next season.

    I dont think you can go from "not visiting an internet message board anymore" to "not Wings fans anymore". How would we know what these people spend their time with? Might still watch the games, might still talk about the team every day - but rather with friends or co-workers than on this board.
  10. Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    You're wrong on that. I don't think the reason for people leaving message boards with too much "trash talk" is them being overly sensitive. It's more a simple rational decision going like "ok, there are enough people in my daily (work) life, that I find annoying and have to deal with...why would I spend time on anything like that when I just don't have to?".

  12. Official 2018 NHL Amateur Entry Draft Discussion Thread

    Just to mention....Bokk is the first german kid ranked in (or around) first round since Draisaitl. And I like the kid..last summer, half a year ago, when he was 17, his club in Cologne didnt offer him a spot on the mens roster in the first divison in Germany. What did he do? Went to Sweden, played in the Under18 team for Vaxjo. Quickly jumped to their U20 team, still thrived, they moved him up to their Pro Team, which is in the highest swedish league. All in one season, still 17 at the time. Hope he makes doubt he has the mindset that it takes.
  13. Wings Interested In Resigning Green

    With that full NTC, Goose won't be a chip most likely, unfortunately.
  14. Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    This. One could say "walk for nothing? we should've kept him", but he was making 4M, which he did not back up with his play since signing that deal. So chances for re-signing him where almost non-existent, and what else than trading could you do in that situation? And the return is very good, given the circumstances.
