    I have never understood the reasoning behind blackouts. People will still go to see the games in person, even if they can watch it on tv. Its not hurting ticket sales to show the games. If people are paying to watch the games on tv, then the team and league are still making money off of the viewership. I understood the reasoning back when people could just watch the games for free on tv back in the day, but EVERYONE pays now, so blackouts should no longer be used.

    Yeah the NHL app. A goal horn goes off when we score.
    It's funny when you're out in public and it goes off. I'm self employed, I've been in a middle of a quote and the horn goes off. The potential client looks at me, and I say, "Oh, the Red Wings just scored"

    Can you please explain this to my wife?  She doesn't understand the 945 am to 845 pm football Sunday program.  I can hide the hockey in my work hrs usually.

    I have the same app on my phone that I think @Barrie does where basically an atom bomb goes off every time the Wings score so I always know the score unfortunately. But it's reminded me more than a few times that a game is going on when I'm doing something else way less important like spending time with my family.

    Yeah, $179 + tax (I'm Canadian) for the season is a good deal. If I miss a game, I can always watch it later. I was watching some of the Sept 17th game against the B. Hawks.
    Gotta get my money's worth!

    I know it's said in a draft to pick the best player available, but we're at a point now where we need to draft certain types of players. We have a lot of young forwards, so we need defencemen with size, and get a starting goalie soon. If Seider is the guy we wanted, I don't have a problem with it.

    stupid Leafs had to give up a 1st round pick to get rid of Marleau's contract! They're always going to be second tier, with too much money on their forwards.

    Barrie got a reaction from Hockeymom1960 in Collapse?   
    I don't think there's anyone to blame, we weren't going to win forever. Think of the franchise players we lost the last 10+ years, Yzerman, Lidstrom, Datsyuk, and Zetterberg. Then you include the secondary players we lost, Holmstrom, Draper, Maltby, Osgood, etc.. Players like them come along once every 25 years, and very tough to replace, especially the draft position we had while we were winning.
    If it wasn't for Datsyuk and Zetterberg turning into the players they were, the "collapse" would have happened by 2005-06. We kind of lucked out with them. Nyquist and Tatar were the next guys, but they didn't work out.

    Barrie got a reaction from kickazz in Is Mike Babcock overrated?   
    The Leafs defense positioning is horrible. I know Babcock doesn't have much to work with, but you'd think a Stanley Cup and Gold Medal winning coach could come up with a better defensive system. Hockey is fast, but it's a positional game. How hard is it to tell someone to stay in a certain area of the ice? I've not been impressed with his coaching the last two years.
    Those would be fun. I'm in!

    Barrie got a reaction from adirondackwing in Met Jamie McLennan last night (Includes Yzerman News)   
    I was at a meet and greet media event in Toronto last night. TSN radio personalities were there talking Leafs and Raptors playoffs. One of the guys there from TSN, was Jamie McLennan. Since I'm a smart aleck, and old enough to not be star struck, I told McLennan I'm a Red Wings fan, and said I remember when he two hand slashed Franzen in the 2007 Playoffs. Jamie laughed and said, "Franzen went down easy, and he resurrected the next day to score the series winning goal in over time". We made more small talk about that series, and I got a picture with him.
    Jamie's wife, Steff, is one of the producers of the radio show he's on. She was there too and I told her the same thing, I'm a Wings fan and remember when Jamie slashed Franzen. Steff laughed and said, "Yeah Jamie will never live that down".
    Walking out at the end of the night, I saw Steff again. I told her I got a picture with Jamie, enjoyed meeting him, so all is forgiven. Again she laughed. She added, their sources are saying Yzerman becoming the next GM of the Red Wings, is pretty much a done deal.

    Oh, I'll add Jeff O'Neill was there too, but he was kind of a jerk. I said to him, how great a team the 2001-02 Hurricanes were, and how nervous I was playing them in the Final. He just kind of looked at me, and brushed me off.
    Whatever Jeff.

    I wonder if the Leafs have blown it? Now they have to win at least one more game in Boston to take the series. You gotta win Game 4 and take a 3-1 series lead. Bruins have the home ice back.
