  1. Hockeytown Red Wings

  2. FS Detroit +, so no TV for me.
  3. Hello everyone. Go Wings.
  4. Lidstrom was probably the best but his excellence is understated. As far as wow factor, probably seeing Sergei Fedorov in his prime.
  5. I would have enjoyed it more if I wasn't so familiar what a crushing 41-14 loss to an SEC school in a huge game felt like. Biggest difference is, we thought we were better than Florida going into that game. Most Michigan fans I knew were based in reality and pretty much knew an ass kicking was coming. But yes, I still enjoyed it.
  6. Caps fan plastering net behind Thomas with Obama posters and signs saying they printed them with taxpayer money. Very clever.
  7. 1. Just score on the chances given. Stop finding ways for it not to go in. 2. When having the puck in the middle of the ice, 10 feet from the net, you should probably shoot. 3. Skate hard! No coasting. Make a decision and play the decision hard. No half in, half out. Notice I say nothing about Nashville. Because if the Wings play to their best of their ability, it does not matter what Nashville does. The refs? Another matter entirely. But that being even, the Wings have a level that I haven't seen Nashville reach.
  8. That's an experiment I'd be all for, for a game. Quincey was driving me nuts in Game 2. I don't recall him pissing me off yesterday though.
  9. It really doesn't matter what the fans focus on. Just as long as the players have their heads right(assuming Weber doesn't assault them).
  10. It's the playoffs, we all know how this works. Suddenly all common sense goes out the window. Things that weren't penalties in the regular season suddenly are. Things that are suspensions in the regular season suddenly aren't. Wouldn't be the first time and nothing shocks me anymore.
  11. I've had a playoff beard since last April. I will trim it for the last time tomorrow.
  12. I've been increasingly disappointed with Cleary's play as the year went. I felt like I knew it had to be his knees and not just a sudden significant dropoff in production and value. If he's only able to play to 50 percent of his ability, it seems that there might be someone more useful to take his spot while he heals. If it's an injury that needs surgery and isn't going to heal, maybe that provides some insight. But it's been clear to see all season that something was off.
  13. Unacceptable. I don't understand why you would attack someone just for what they're wearing. Don't get me wrong, I've been to games at the Joe where there was one ******* who I really wanted to watch get a beer poured on himself, but I'm not gonna attack anyone for what team they root for. I've been attacked at Michigan Stadium before for being a Buckeye. And I've also been treated with amazing hospitality at the same place. It happens the same way down here too. You really can't do too much about it, except to diffuse the situation if you see it happening. Full disclosure, I have beaten the hell out of a Blackhawks fan before. But he was a friend and roommate and liked getting his ass kicked for some reason.
  14. *Peeks in.* So we're panicking? Cool. I'd have liked to pick up a scoring forward or Gaustad. We didn't. I don't think the sky is falling. No one improved vastly from where they were. Hell, I don't think anyone improved anything more than marginally. Sammy Pahlsson? If the players we already have aren't playing well, any additions would not have made a difference anyway. Continue your broadcast of chaos and doom.
  15. I don't think we'd have to give up that much to get Selanne. He wants to go to a winner, he's in what it is probably his last season. No team is going to sell the farm for four months without a chance of retaining the player at years end. Unless Pierre Lacroix is back in town.
