  1. Good seeing Mantha and Larkin getting points early.
  2. How's the LCA

    Watching games on TV, I don't like the organ. I was a big fan of the "Let's Go Wings" song at Joe Louis, but at LCA all I've heard is it played on the organ.
  3. I'm watching on Sportsnet. As some of you may know, I'm very critical of announcers, but tonight's announcers are decent. They don't get to excited either way.
  4. How's the LCA

    Thanks for the info!
  5. How's the LCA

    I'll be there January 7th, also looking to get some resales on Ticketmaster for December 9th. Which side of the ice does Fox Sports Detroit have their desk on? I want to sit on that side and yell at Ozzie
  6. Sheahan and a 5th for Wilson and a 3rd

    That's a good trade
  7. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    I wonder if AA will do the same thing next year?
  8. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    I haven't been following too close, and I don't want to go through 27 pages, but what is AA asking for? Dude's only played 101 games in the NHL, he has to be realistic. Holland, if you like him or not, isn't a GM who low balls.
  9. Met a Couple Red Wings Family Members

    I had a good laugh with the discussion about asking her out. If I asked her out, her live in boyfriend wouldn't like it.
  10. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    I was called a moron for posting this on Facebook, but that McDavid contract has increased the value of all young RFA's. AA is comparing himself to McDavid now, and is being unrealistic. Soon the highest paid players in the league are going to be in their early 20's. This McDavid contract is going to lead to another lockout. The owners will want a cap on RFA contracts next.
  11. Met a Couple Red Wings Family Members

    Chastise away, despite looking like her dad, she's a looker.
  12. Met a Couple Red Wings Family Members

    Happy to share with people I know who'll appreciate it. Thanks for the feedback.
  13. Hey everyone, just wanted to share I've had a fun summer Red Wings related. Today I met Budd Lynch's nephew. I have a Life Insurance License, every year to keep the license valid, we need to earn credits. I earn credit by attending a day of teaching at a conference center, and the teaching includes a free lunch. Today at lunch, one of my coworkers and I had Lynch's nephew come up to us and ask if he could sit with us, because he didn't know anyone. We do the typical intros, "Nice to meet you", and small talk. There was a TV in the lunch room, and it had sports on. They were showing the Leafs training camp, so I said, "I'm not a fan, but I think the Leafs are going to have a good year". Lynch's nephew agreed, and said he not a Leafs fan either. I said, "I'm a Wings fan", and he said he is too. I told him, "I have family in Windsor, so I grew up going to Tigers and Wings games". Lynch's nephew said, "My Uncle worked with the Red Wings. He did different jobs, then play-by-play, and was the PA Announcer." My jaw dropped and I said, "Wait a minute, your Uncle is Budd Lynch?". Anyway, it was a fun conversation talking about Budd, Ted Lindsay, Gordie, Joe Louis Arena, the current Red Wings team, and more. I asked Budd's nephew when Budd started play-by-play (I forgot off hand), when he said 1949 I went, "He saw it all! That's when everything started". Add to that, in July I met Bob Probert's oldest daughter, she works at a restaurant owned by family on my Uncle's side. We were sitting down waiting to order, and my Aunt goes, "Oh, Probert's daughter works here, there she is over there". I said, "Really? I want to ask her about her Dad then, but how could I bring it up?". My Aunt says, "I'll ask her how the Bikers Fundraiser went, then you can say something". Anyway, my Aunt asks Probert's daughter about the fundraiser, so I said, "Yeah, my Aunt says you work here. I can see the family resemblance" (she does look like her dad). I added, "I remember your Dad, he was a great player. I remember when him and Joey Kocur where the 'Bruise Brothers'". Probie's daughter said, "Oh Joey Kocur, he's so nice". Leaving I said to her, "I'm going to brag to my friends I met one of Probert's daughters. Maybe you get that a lot?" She said, "Sometimes". Cool huh?
  14. Tatar Re-Signs 4 Years $21.2M ($5.3M AAV)

    Yeah, I don't know why we'd want to trade Tatar anyway. The NTC isn't an issue with him. Good more for both sides. $5.3 Million/year is the going rate for a 45-50 point guy.
  15. 1995-96 was a shock, but 2002-03 was even more shocking. I'm sure we all thought a Cup in 2003 was in the bag.
