  1. Wayyy back in the day, teams had only one jersey, the colored one. The Leafs were the first to add a white jersey, not for road games, but for any game against a team in blue jerseys. The Wings and Canadiens followed suit, wearing white by turns when they played each other. This is a great site:
  2. Wow, I thought I was the only one who hated the shootout! It would make more sense to decide the game with a fight between the goons from each team. Fans would really get into that.
  3. Roy Edwards, without a doubt. I also miss Roger Crozier and Gump Worsley.
  4. We're just getting warmed up! No argument about Hasek, though. He's a beast.
  5. Time for the home run derby. Too bad--it has been an entertaining game.
  6. Someone has probably mentioned this already, but the Wings were not exactly stellar in 4v4 overtime this season. It doesn't suit their pass-around style of play. Changing the format of playoff OT would put some teams (like ours) at a real disadvantage.
  7. I would agree that P. Esposito belongs, too; it's hard to imagine the Bruins in the 60s-70s without him. I know a Montreal fan who thinks they've retired way too many numbers--he expects to see those three-digit numbers any day now!
  8. Ha had me going until the 'we already have enough Cups' bit. It does raise an interesting question, though--why bother with the President's Trophy at all? With the new unbalanced schedule, it doesn't mean nearly as much as the Prince of Wales Trophy did in the O6 days. As things stand, NHL teams play 82 games of 'preseason' hockey, with nothing more at stake than a good seed in the games that really matter. The PT is a bit like first place in the Grapefruit League.
  9. Crap--I had a bad feeling about this game from the start of the third period. A 3 goal lead is the kiss of death for these guys. I like the way the Wings came back in OT, though. The shootout is a joke, and I can't wait for the playoffs when we don't have to put up with it anymore.
  10. I haven't lived in Detroit for a while, but I remember when NHLers were almost all Canadian and a lot of the Wings' fans were Canadians, too. When you think about it, it's amazing that the franchise has come so far.
  11. Great--I've thought of doing that, too. Sometimes I turn the radio/TV off before a shootout. It is such a lame way to end a good hockey game. So how do those standings look?
  12. I keep hearing about a switch to white jerseys at home next season. Is this a rumor, or confirmed? Who is the source? I don't care, really. I would just like the NHL to make up its mind.
  13. New theory: the hockey gods are wroth with the Red Wings for playing only twenty minutes per game. That is the only way to explain a) those three posts in the third b) the BJs scoring on another lame deflection, and c) Samuelsson in the shootout. Beware the wrath of the hockey gods!
  14. Yeah, it bugs me too. For a while there, was holding the feed so long that I was hearing pre-recorded commercials by Ken and Paul. More typically, they drop the feed almost immediately. Oh--now WXYT is back.
  15. It is probably still blacked out for, which usually drops the feed before the WXYT site picks it back up. You should be able to get it when the Wings' post-game show is over.
