  2. 12/30 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Predators 6

    He hasn't used it often but he's certainly buried a handful that way. Back in 03-04 or 04-05 the Wings played Chicago around Christmas. It was the one where we scored twice in like the last minute to force overtime. If I remember right Dats one timed it for the win with like a tenth of a second left on the clock in OT. I can't find video anymore though which sucks because it was a pretty exciting game.
  3. Nyquist Getting the call

    What you guys have to understand is that this means he is being showcased for a trade. For Peter Forsberg.

  6. 2013-14 Schedule Highlights

    This. Been waiting too long
  7. WCQF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1, at Ducks 3. (Anaheim leads, 1-0)

    I guess I can end my boycott of the NHL now Dats with the Gordie Howe hat trick is my prediction.
  8. Playing in Florida multiple times a year would be f***in amazing!
  9. 1/27 Red Wings 1 @ Chicago Blackhawks 2 (OT)

    I'm at work and I can't find the channel on my DirecTV app. If someone could tell me what CI channel they will be on I'd be much obliged.
  10. NHL Center Ice

    Goddamnit, I feel my will to boycott the season eroding. Worst part is I was so adamant that I was going to give the NHL the Netflix treatment and my wife was all LOLyeahright. She lives for the "I told you so" EDIT--Relevant in this topic because the discount on CI is driving this...
  11. Now What Can the NHL Do For You, the Fans

    I know it won't happen but free CI is what it would take to retain my full engagement. I'll watch Dats highlights on YouTube, and I will still come here because it's just habit when I'm online. But other than that it isn't happening for me. I'll spend that money to watch the Tigers this year. I was so upset when we lost the season last time, but now I'm just bitter.
  12. Canucks Vs Detroit in Motor City

    Good matchup, sure, I don't think anyone is denying that. But I really don't see how your analogy using the greatest basketball player of all time fits. Does MJ's hockey equal play for either of the teams? No? Ok then. Maybe because many of us have been watching hockey long enough to know that one regular season game means f*** all? In 2008 we lost TEN games in February, including a 5-1 to the BJ's. And I know that you know how that turned out for us because you were done watching the 'Nucks after the first week of April. I hate to break it to you but home ice won't be determined on Thursday. There is still a quarter of the season left to play. You can't even point at this game if in the end we lose home ice by one point. It's but one small piece of the bigger picture. Again, we know it will (probably) be a good game. The win streak might even be snapped. Still doesn't make it any more important than any of the other 82 games in a season. Most of us would consider years like 94, 95, and 06 to be "losing seasons". Success breeds high expectations in anything. What's the excuse for Nucks fans being so insufferable? We get it, it is important to you because it is the Wings. And you want to be more important to us than the Shats or Hawks. It's just that things are complicated right now...maybe in the future but I think we should just be friends. Considering you can lose on any given night to any team in the league why should it be more important? Facts? Where? What you've provided is a text block of TL;DR worthy opinions. 2 = 2 is an example of a fact.
  13. Cole suspended three games

    I can't argue anything that hasn't already been said. But if Dats had gotten suspended for that hit it would have been worth every game. My favorite part is when he does the "Thornton Peek"
