  1. Reviewability of the calls?

    Despite the s***ty waived off goal, we can all agree that the Wings needed to have played better from the start. Say what you want but the previous marathon 3OT loss, that is draining and had effect on the first couple periods. I'm kind of glad in a silverlining way that the game didn't go to overtime AND for it to turn into a loss. We haven't faired well in OT with the ducks and another loss to them in OT would be really deflating. OVERALL I'm just saying 2 OT losses in a row would be devistating. I would take a wings OT win anyday of the week. Instead the wings come into game 4 refreshed with a chip on their shoulder and can play like they want to win it. Wings need a little adversity...can't have the cup handed to them. Maybe a piss poor silverlining but...its what is getting me through. Can't change the past. If the series comes down to that NO GOAL --- I will feel dead inside.
  2. Congrats to VS

    My only beef is that VS needs a new camera guy at least for this last game. This past game vs the ducks made me nausious by how he kept swinging back and forth trying to find the puck/play on more than one occasion. Also, did anyone else notice that the horizonal on ice picture seems further away from the ice than when FSN broadcasts? Makes the game seem smaller and harder to follow (no wonder the camera guy couldn't find the play). I will say that their coverage otherwise has improved with each year along with their advertising. My opinion: FSN>NBC>VS. Nothing beats Ken and Mickey Hometown pride baby!
  3. Johan Franzen signs extension, 11 years

    Interesting, doesn't the current CBA expire 2011? If there happens to be another lockout or something, I wonder what would happen with all these long term deals.......

    is average the same thing as cap hit??? that might be a dumb question
  5. Martin Brodeur: Great Goalie, Questionable Morals

    Gossip, gossip, gossip... Affairs, cheating, infidelity---that story has been written over and over again; but the story always ends in turmoil. Too bad humanity doesn't learn. Just goes to show that we can be immortalized by having all the riches, awards & records in the world; but nobody is immune from immorality. We are all guilty of it in one way or another. Unfortunate and sad. And public or not, the Brodeur family needs their privacy respected.
  6. Ziggy Palffy can still play

    With a name like Žiggy Pálffy he has to be good....
  7. Red Wings fans

    I can understand why you're bothered, and especially as a season ticket holder you probably see it all the time. I people watch when I go from time to time and it just seems like many people do not have any game edicate. A couple things I've noticed when I'm at a game: 1. Probably various reasons. Work, weather, farting around... 2. The lines at the concession stands and bathrooms are redonkulous at the intermissions. People either exit before the period ends to get into line quick enough to not to take a leak in their pants. 3. As far as husseling, I seen someone take a tumble going up and going down the JLA steps (maybe they were a lil tipsy too, or had to get to the bathroom). They're kind of steep. If I've had a couple beers, I have to concentrate to climb them. Also, I remember a lady once seriously freaked out because she was sitting way too high. 4. Many people can't afford season tickets like yourself so they don't go often enough and/or don't understand the logistics of seat arrangements 5. My church pastor gets t'd off for the same reason when people arrive late and leave early for a sunday service. Nearly half the church does it. It doesn't suprise me people do it at a hockey game. Also, people are in a hurry to get out before traffic backs up. ...just my two cents. I suggest you let it roll off of your shoulders---or stand up to look over them---afterall, its a public and social event, there isn't anything you're going to do about it. I watch pretty much every game at home without the people obstructing my view. But when I got the money to spend on a game, its always a good time, I don't notice it so much since I don't go as often.
  8. Ott Receives One Game Suspension

    You can see the alleged eye gouging at the end of the fight when Ott was on top of Moen; At the bottom of the pile, Moen's legs started to squirm back and forth---then one of the Refs said "HEY!" grabbed and pulled away Otts unbroken hand that was near Moen's face. I'm not really sure how you can say that. They don't deserve any respect. I hate Ott and I hate the Ducks...cheapshot artist meets cheapshot team. The Ducks don't like it when the tables are turned. LOL @ Giguiere trying to make pea nut butter out of Ott (although I hate it when padded up goalies go after players in general, its lame) Ott deserved what he got. Moen? Man, you beat the cheese out of a one handed, nut-less Ott...how did he manage to get at your eyes?! All in all, I say go beat the hell out of each other--both deserve it. Suspend OTT forever. Ducks play just as dirty as Ott.

    Maybe it has to do with steriod use... not just for the MLB anymore
  13. Interested in getting playoff tickets

    I've never had a problem getting tickets to the playoff games I wanted to go to: quarter, semi, conf. finals. Never been to SCF, but a lot fans didn't seem to have too tough of a time getting them last year. The deeper they go, the harder it would be to get them. But, I think in this economy, it won't be too difficult. Just pay attention to when they go onsale. Otherwise, look at ebay or other online places and compare prices. Most of the time, I was able to find a season ticket holder who isn't asking only a couple bucks above the price tag.
  14. Why do people do this?

    I think these cool names are more like titles or introductions than nicknames. Like another poster pointed out, you don't hear them used in conversation so much. I can understand the annoyance though. I went to the Caps/Wings game in D.C. this year, and there was this adult woman sitting behind me who insisted on putting a -y after every player's name. Ovey, Flashy, Brashy (Bashear), Travey, Kozzy, Feddy (Fedorov), Backy (Backstrom)...the whole team was pretty much the "Capys" to her. Not to mention, she was cheering in a high pitched, overexaggerated voice. I was going to kill her but, I had to throw up first from the nausea she was causing me. It was that and her male counterpart calling everybody by their first name: "way to go Donald!", "way to get em Alex!" or how seriously po'd he was when "Alexander" (Semin) took a couple penalties etc. Which was, to a slightly lesser extent, annoying I don't really mind so much if the nicknames are used conservatively or slip in once in a while; but if I'm in another team's building and listening to unknowledgable fans who cheer at calling a time out...I can't take it.
  15. Places For Jersey Customization

    http://coolhockey.com I've been waiting for their wing jerseys to come back in stock, then I'm going to purchase a Z jersey . They are Reebok Premier jerseys that will look like the EDGE jerseys with authentic hand stitched player letter and numbering. Now I have't done business with them yet; but, I've read the testimonials and the fact that they're based in Canada is reason enough for me to purchase from them. Hope this helps
