    Helm Status Update

    Sucks that Helm is out but we need him healthy. He can't risk a bad back injury. No sense letting him take a hit and worsening the situation. Ride with the guys we have

    The person below me game...

    And I got out of my last two speeding tickets. The person below me has been in a car accident

    Hey Hawks fans....

    I miss Homer and the old grind line. Those were the days.

    Report: Roy Appointed Avalanche Coach

    Watched every second of the Roy video. Remember that game very well. The statue of liberty goal in Game 6 was just as good. Hasek stood on his head that year.

    Minot, ND viewing party?

    Why not Minot? You should be able to go into a local sports bar to catch the game

    Should we bring Tootoo in for game 4?

    No reason to change anything unless we have an injury. The extra day off should help that. Maybe for Game 5 he would be better suited to play if someone gets dinged up

    Watching Ericsson mature

    Staying out of the box and playing solid hard nosed defense is critical. Lidstrom was so damned good at staying out of the box and we had our other d-men taking minors in big games. If these guys can keep playing physical without getting penalized we are going to continue playing for a few more weeks.
  8. Hope Babs tells them they are soft every game. The boys have been pushing hard the last two games. We need to go up 3-1 and deflate the Hawks

    Helm to miss at least the first game

    With only 48 games in a very short time, we need guys healthy. This is going to be a sprint to the playoffs

    GM Ken Holland says Red Wings might not make playoffs this year

    The old days of signing who you want and blockbuster trade deadline deals are long done. Elite talent surrounded by the right role players and a hot goalie come playoff time will win Cups. Its a formula the front office needs to adapt to.

    Kronwall IS a #1 Dman

    There is no conceivable way to compare anyone in the entire league or on our roster to Lidstrom. He was a god among men on the ice. Kronwall & Ericsson both could be #1 d men. But no one in the entire league is on par with Lidstrom back there.

    I'd pass. Time to get younger and not add older legs

    Brunner's nickname

    You're comparing two different leagues though. Swiss hockey v Swedish hockey. That really is my question. How do stats from another league translate to the NHL? Guess we'll find out real soon!

    Half Season Predictions 2013

    Each season stands on its own. That pattern really is just a coincidence. The team that gets hot in the postseason with stellar goalie play is going to win the Cup every year. The best team doesn't always win it all.
