  1. Red Wings vs. Penguins @ the Joe - 7:00PM EST

    I see. Yeah that makes more sense, Mickey would be talking about him taking a "coaching or management" role with the team. I didn't see the interview or the game so i heard Mickeys comment without any context.
  2. Red Wings vs. Penguins @ the Joe - 7:00PM EST

    Like i said. I think it's an absurd premise and why would Nick want to come back to this team. The comment was probably about something else. Im sure the organization would have him back as a side-show for the new arena.
  3. Red Wings vs. Penguins @ the Joe - 7:00PM EST

    Did anyone catch Mickeys little blurb about Nick Lidstrom. He said he wouldn't say what some people are saying. Followed that with something to the effect of "lets just say he really enjoyed playing in the alum game". Was that a hint of a comeback. Ha Ha. I know that sounds absurd but maybe Chelios is talking him into it.
  4. Ken Daniel's son dies at 23 y/o

    Had this happen to a young family member several years ago (died after they went to sleep). While I'm not suggesting its the reason in this case, for my family member it was by all accounts a first time using heroin that turned out was laced with fentanyl. If anyone remembers, there were multiple deaths that year (about 10 years ago actually) where people took this bad heroin. Hopefully it wasn't something like this but either way it is still very sad. RIP.
  5. 12/1 GDT - Panthers at Red Wings - 7:30 PM EST

    Gotta agree with a few here saying it. You don't blindly dump the puck around the boards in OT. Keep it on your stick until tired bodies are replaced.
  6. 11/10 GDT : at Red Wings 3, Vancouver Canucks 1

    Not to take away from Millers great save and it is obviously a moot point. However, should he have received a penalty for having the puck in the trapezoid? Maybe the whistle blew before his glove hand slid in there?
  7. So the consensus on Shanny's #14 is a no?

    The standards for jersey retirements are super high for the Wings and most teams. I think next to us the AVS might be the next most strictest team.
  8. Sal Galatioto Predicts NHL Cap & Floor Dropping

    Thanks for the link. So the rollback occurred and teams like the wings still had to buy out contracts to get more lower priced players signed. I didnt see the video of the OP but i cant imagine the cap going down all that much, although i wouldnt have imagined a 37 mil cap when we were spending like 70+.
  9. Sal Galatioto Predicts NHL Cap & Floor Dropping

    I am trying to recall what exactly happened at that time. Im not sure if its as you are suggesting that a proportional drop of all player salaries occurred to all the teams to keep them all intact. We had to buy out Hatcher if i recall to get under the cap. I believe the rule was created that still stands that any one player cannot make more than 20% of the overall cap. If your simply saying that the market for players adjusted to go along with the much smaller cap number then that would be correct. My memory could be foggy though or maybe im reading your post wrong. Sucks getting old. Now im thinking you are correct and the reason teams bought out higher priced players is because they needed to fill out roster spots with more players and couldnt get cap/roster compliant until they dumped the big salaries. It would be like getting rid of one big salary to take on 2 or 3 smaller ones. Oh well im sure someone will fill in my memory gaps.
  10. Old Yzerman Goal
  11. Acquiring a top six forward

    True. I had mistakenly looked at his current stats and thought they were his totals for last year haha. He is for sure on the downside of his career, however, and im sure will be on the block for rental if Phoenix is a seller. ?? Has Phoenix straightened out any of their mess with ownership yet and if not i doubt they will be making him a significant offer before this year is done if at all.
  12. Acquiring a top six forward

    Doan is in his final year of his contract. He could just resign in the offseason after a playoff run with whatever team he is traded to. This is assuming Phoenix may not be in the playoff picture which is obviously not a given but i dont consider them a serious cup-contender. As for Iginla. He always seems to have his name in trade talks these last couple years as Calgary has consistently under-achieved. It would take a lot more to get him though.
  13. Acquiring a top six forward

    For anyone who knows the best top-six rentals that might be available at or before the deadline can u list. In addition, not a top-six but Shane Doan could be this years Dallas Drake depending of the playoff status of Phoenix. He was a beast against us 2 years ago before he got hurt in that series. A little long in the tooth but could be effective on a third or fourth line with limited minutes.
  14. Photo of Datsyuk/Perry fight

    Dont remember this. It sounds suspiciously like an incident in 1994 playoffs vs the Sharks. Fedorov crosschecked a Shark (Cant remember which one?? Jeff Norton maybe) and then sort of pushed his face into the ice with the shaft of his stick. I think he got a couple of games to start the next season.
  15. Ken Hitchcock coming to Camp

    With all the hollywood stuff going on in Detroit, I think hes just trying to revive his old show. I heard hes trying to recruit McCrimmon to play the role of Green Jeans so all you haters can take comfort.
