  1. Update: At Least 14 dead in Humboldt Broncos In Accident (SJHL)

    Friendly reminder that LGW is a politics-free zone! Keep the discussion hockey-focused, please. Plenty of places elsewhere on the internet to discuss any possible political aspects of this tragedy.
  2. Very sad to have heard this news this morning. Strader was easily one of the best in an often unbearable industry. Strader did the play-by-play for the Wings/Hawks Winter Classic in '09. It was originally supposed to be Doc Emrick, but he came down with laryngitis or something like that, and Strader stepped in. Absolutely made my day when I heard Strader's voice instead of Emrick's that day. The hockey world lost a giant today. He will be sorely missed.

    Just a friendly reminder that politics specifically are not allowed as topics of discussion here on LGW. Granted, that may be a tough line to walk given the nature of this story and the use of the Winged Wheel logo. But please try to remember that this is a Red Wings/Hockey based forum, and not a political one. Discussion of these groups' use of the Red Wings logo is welcomed and encouraged. Discussion of the groups' viewpoints, beliefs, values, presidential choices, etc, are NOT allowed. Posts such as these can and will be deleted swiftly. There are no shortage of political based discussion/message boards on the internet. One of those are better suited to that kind of discussion. Thank you.
  4. Eddie Olczyk

    Olczyk is arguably one of the most biased color commentators I've ever seen in any sport. The fact that NBC sports allows him to work on a national telecast when either the Blackhawks (and to a lesser extent, the Penguins) are playing is a flat out disgrace. That said, I absolutely wish him a full and speedy recovery from this. Hoping he'll be back for me to mute soon!
  5. At least we got the modified NTC for the final year, when we could possibly be sellers for Daley's contract... Not thrilled by this signing, but not disgusted by it either. I'm just concerned about the possible backlog of Jensen/Ouellet/Sproul if our 1-5 is healthy.

  8. 2017 WCQF: Nashville Predators vs. Chicago Blackhawks

    We went the entire playoffs without having to hear Chelsea Dagger...
  9. The Buck Stops WHERE? With WHOM?

    Haven't had much hockey after then in the last few years anyway... To me, both Holland and Blashill need to go. Holland is very obviously in over his head in the Salary Cap world, and I'm sincerely hoping he walks after his contract is up next year. Blashill has seen significant player regression in his 2 years here. Obviously, much of that lies on the shoulders of the players themselves, but the coach has to be responsible (read: Held Responsible) for that regression as well. The roster is too talented to be playing as poorly as we are playing. It's too bad Montreal jumped on picking up Claude Julien. Would have liked to see him have a chance with this roster.
  10. Been waiting 9 months for this picture!

    1st round draft pick, 2035. Congratulations!
  11. Solid return for Smith. Holland did well in this situation. Bite your tongue!!
  12. Gustav Nyquist Hearing

    Meanwhile, Kris Letang sends his "I didn't get suspended" regards...
  13. ...just maybe not in the right goal. Things may be bad for us too, but at least they're not THIS bad...
  14. Bruins fire Claude Julien

    Always awkward when you have to fire a coach that won a Stanley Cup for you, and got you back to the finals 2 years later...
