  1. Saw this trending on twitter a few days back, and thought it could be fun to try here. It's simple, state an opinion of yours that is likely unpopular. Here's mine. I absolutely love the buttered popcorn flavored jelly beans.
  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.
  3. Detroit Right Wings

    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.
  6. Anthony Mantha's new road-trip roommate.

    May the 4th be with you!
  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...
  15. ADs/LOGOs on jerseys

    I'm guessing it's a league in Finland, based only on the "Suomen Kuvalehti" in the top right of the picture. Which, according to google/Wikipedia, it's a Finnish news & family magazine. The jersey ads are bad enough. But logos on the defending teams gloves/pads?!
  16. ADs/LOGOs on jerseys

    I've seen Bettman quotes on this topic in years past when it's come up, with the asinine line of thinking of "Well, advertisements work so well for NASCAR that they could work well for hockey too..." No sir. They would not. I do not want any team in the NHL's jerseys looking like this garbage...

    The Force will be with you, Carrie, always...
  19. Merry Christmas everyone!

    Merry (late) Christmas and Happy (late) Holidays to all LGW'ers out there. My favorite Christmas songs (these are pretty much all non-traditional songs. I'm sure you're ALL tired of hearing that crap by now)... All of these are from an Indiana vocal group called Straight No Chaser. The Christmas Can-Can... Text Me Merry Christmas (featuring The Chris Osgood Fan Club Kristen Bell)... Kristen Bell The Nutcracker... The 12 Days of Christmas... (wait for it, it's good!)
  20. Red Wings Centennial Classic Jersey

    The thing I love the most about my '14 WC jersey is that the name/numbers are made of felt instead of the shiny polyester (or whatever it is) that are currently on the jerseys. It really gives it the "old time hockey" feel to it. Personally, I think the Centennial Classic jersey just looks rushed. Especially when you consider how good Toronto's jersey looks...
  21. Problem (kinda) solved! Thanks, Carolina!
  22. Disney Buys Star Wars, 3 New Films Coming

    Disney did it again. Rogue One was AWESOME. Just flat out AWESOME. It's hard for me to rank it with the other 7 at the moment, simply because it's so new. (Think about asking a child what their favorite toy is on Christmas Day, that's about how I feel about it thus far). But I can easily say that I would rank it at the very least equal with ROTJ. Possibly ahead of it, once the "newness" has worn off and I get a chance to see it a couple more times. My ranking thus far, leaving out Rogue One for the aforementioned reasons... 1 - Empire Strikes Back. 2 - A New Hope. 3 - Return of the Jedi. The Ewoks dragged this one down ever so slightly below A New Hope. 4 - Revenge of the Sith. The best of the prequels,but still far below the Original Trilogy. 5 - The Phantom Menace. 6 - Attack of the I Fell Asleep In This One Clones.
