  1. Great to see Patty Wah back in the big show. No one blows gaskets like he can, and even though it only took one game to witness his first 'episode' it's not all that surprizing given the Ducks propensity for bush league antics.
  2. Used to live in Canada (until last summer) and I think Jay and Dan are AWESOME. The American audience (including myself) are gonna enjoy them IMO.
  3. Even though this is a hockey forum I just wanted to pay tribute to my favorite basketball player of all time. Though he never won a championship and only played 6 years for Detroit, Hill in his prime was arguably the most explosive and dynamic player to ever wear a Pistons uniform. Moreover the guy epitomized class and professionalism on and off the court. I'm glad he was able to retire on his own terms, and as a Pistons fan I thank him not only for his efforts for us, but also for the fact his sign-and-trade to Orlando for Ben Wallace began Detroit's eventual ascent back to the top in 2004.
  4. WOOOOOOO!!!! Most unexpected series win in all my time as a wings fan. Can't believe how much our depth forwards and green D stepped up in this series.
  5. Agreed. Sammy was terribad today.
  6. Fun thread even if the OP wasn't the octopi culprit. Watched the game at a bar with 0 other Wings fans, or even hockey fans for that matter, and still enjoyed every minute of it.
  7. Excellent summary by the OP. It's pretty amazing for me to see how far they've come from opening night (quick refresher: they lost 6-0 in a game that I drove 3 hours to attend) to where they are today. They are still way too reliant on the magic of Dats and Z, but it's a joy to see that the future is not all doom and gloom, and the progression of the next generation of the Winged Wheel is coming along nicely.
  8. Wings need to look harder. Our D is atrocious right now... like 1980s bad.
  9. WOOOOT! I was at the game on Saturday and I'll just state the obvious; watching this one (albeit on TV) was so much more enjoyable. Ever since Lidstrom's retirement (and Detroit's subsequent failure to acquire decent reinforcements) I've accepted that this would be a tough year for our D and special teams. The first couple of games have comfirmed this for me, but I'm still glad as hell hockey is back and seeing how mediocre we are now actually makes me savour these normally forgettable regular season victories a lot more.
  10. Excellent read. Thanks for the link Jack!
  11. F*** yeah!! What an awesome sendoff by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the people of Detroit!
  12. Saddened but like Nick I kept it together *sigh*. Well it's been a fantastic 20 years.
  13. Damn.... the first Wings game I ever watched on TV was during Lidstrom's rookie year. I'm deeply saddened right now. All good things come to an end.
