  1. Update: At Least 14 dead in Humboldt Broncos In Accident (SJHL)

    I was thinking about this last year when I was at the Denver airport on a shuttle bus with my 3 year old, and the bus had to have been going 50-60 miles and hour. In my car my toddler is buckled in a secure car seat but at the same speed on a bus he’s sitting on my lap with no protection at all. I started looking at the airport logistics closer after that and now avoid any situation where we need to be transported in that manner.
  2. Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    Haha, Certainly some are making some things worse, but overall likely not.

    I believe we as a society are trending in the other direction. It seems we are over sensitive because the internet has given a voice to the population at large, and the remaining sensitive ones use that mouth piece to drown out the silent stable masses, but during the times of the philosophers you mentioned, people were routinely executed for offending the beliefs of others. One even notable one in your list! The world is becoming a better place to live with every passing day, each generation builds off the toil of the one that came before, similar to skill level increases in our beloved sport.
  4. Everyone seems to be forgetting about the one player absent from the 2008 team that could do it all, Igor Larionov. These thought exercises are tough though, only six years earlier, old slow guys could still be successful like Hull and Larionov, but a lot changed by 2008, even more so now.
  5. Well I was going to be routing for Vegas to win it all this year but now I suppose we need them to lose early.
  6. Rumors Thread

    Should we be trying to land someone like Tavares who would be better on a team that’s ready to win now, or should we focus on building through the draft and trading for young prospects. It seems like we are 5-8 years from being contenders if all goes well, so getting someone who will be out of their prime by then is pointless. Stop Gap mediocre players like Neilsen I don’t mind as much. Keep in mind I can’t watch any games so my estimation of our success is probably baseless.
  7. 10/18 GDT - Red Wings at Maple Leafs - 7:30 PM EST

    Sure, if we want Ghost Babcock mentoring the next young coach to eventually beat us in the finals.
  8. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    That's Frank's only determining factor.
  9. That wouldn't even be as sad as if what you're saying otherwise is true.
  10. Development Camp

    I love the description for Coreau.
  11. 2017 Draft

    Both Tyler Wright and Ken Holland spoke highly of Rasmussen's off ice character, and it seemed, at least in the short interviews, that it weighed heavily in their decision. I know virtually nothing about this process, does this seem to anyone as a valid reason for picking him over other players that were ranked better?
  12. 2017 ECQF: Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

    Seriously someone who knows these playoff teams better than me, who is going to stop the Penguins from winning again?
  13. Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

    He scored a pretty one tonight.
  14. I agree with you, but I find it's productive to affect progress in the corner of world we occupy. Red Wings hockey is our arena and this is an interesting and relevant topic to discuss.
  15. That's the point, there's an argument to made for eating them as organisms use other organisms to survive, but we don't want a market for gorilla hands (there is one for some reason) but if eating gorillas was important in keeping human around I'd probably eat a gorilla. Of course they may be an argument for not eating octopi at all but I don't know that I'm prepared to present it. Similar to this situation, I'd be opposed to the pepperoni throwing enough to discuss its merits on this forum, but am not going to picket outside the arena.
