Really enjoyed today's practices too. My pictures are up for Day 3. I am slowly uploading my video of Pavel, Zetterberg, and Homer playing keep away as well as other videos. It was very funny and the definite highlight for the day. Got to meet Eaves, Modano, Hudler, Lidstrom, Filppula, and McCollum today. My group was talking to Val about how much he looks like his brother, and I said, "But you're definitely the cuter one," then teased him by saying, "But you wouldn't know if we said that to him yesterday as well." To which, he replied, "No, it's definitely me." :rolleyes:

Helm, and V. Filppula both had nice goals today, and Miller got the overtime goal. Tatar and Tardiff were really doing well. Helm also almost had a breakaway. I asked him what his goal for shorties this season would be, and he kind of chuckled and said he didn't know. One of my group said 35, and he goes, "Oh, I don't know about that many!" Liked his Charlie Brown (his favorite character) T-shirt.

It was also nice to meet Kira and Loki today too. Can't wait for tomorrow's Red and White game. I'll probably end up with 500 pictures. :hehe:

This was before the second period began, when all the players were skating around. Ilari went over to Valtteri to talk to him, but as usually is the case with my camera when taking sports pictures, sometimes the timing just gives you pictures that are funny looking. There's one in there of Homer posing in a funny way, and one of Doug Janik and Datsyuk that is pretty cute too.

I'm curious to find out how Ilari Filppula has done so far? Has he looked out of place or has he kept up just fine?
Thank You TeeMan

Well I figured I'd post this here since it technically has "something" to do with training camp and Traverse City. I went out to Dillingers and Bootleggers last night for a friends BDay. As we're sitting at the bar I looked to my right and saw a guy who looked exactly like John Keating, but thought to myself, "Why would he be here?", so I thought nothing of it. Then about twenty minutes later the Grind Line walked in followed by Ozzie and J-Ho! They were there for a few hours and here's my interactions with them:

As cheesy as it was, I opened with "X, thank you for all you've done for 'us', how's TC treating yah'"

Draper: Seemed like he didn't realllly want to be there and passed me off and seemed quite reserved.

Maltby: Was absolutely clutch all night. He never wasn't double fisting beers all night haha. Asked him how his injuries feel and he says he feels 100% (might have been the booze, but he looked healthy to me)

DMac: He was everyones friend last night. Talked to everyone that came up to him and I never heard so many random people say, "you were/are totally my hero". His reply always seemed to be 'I wouldn't be if it weren't for the Wings" or something along those lines, just an absolutely great guy.

Ozzie: Man he's a tiny dude. I talked to him some of the most. I asked him what he was going to say in his HHOF speech kind of off the cuff. This guy is the most humble person i have ever met. He said that he would like to be in the HHOF, but he doesn't know or think he'll get in. I also asked if he think he'll finally get to 400 wins this season and his response was "with this team, I better (laughing)" and we laughed.

Jimmy Howard: He's a goalie through and through. He was all GQ'd up and you could tell he was feeling pretty good. I asked him how many years has it been since he's been coming up to TC and he said 6 and quickly responded with "and hopefully another 10 years!!!". This dude is legit and a great guy.

This was my Monday night, i figured LGW nation would appreciate this.

I'll upload some photos later if you peeps want.

It's usually where they go, and then the casino afterwards, or at least that's what DMac said where they were going once we closed the bar haha.

We went to Dillinger's on Sunday night and Maltby was there that night as well.. He came in by himself and met up with some non-Wing friends later.

I only made it to the last 2 days of the Prospect Tournamnet. It was really great hockey to watch again. The Detroit Red Wings Prospects made it to the Championship Game and they even had a 1-0 Lead going into the third period but still ended up losing 3-1 to the Minnesota Wild Prospects. I took the loss harder than I should have but I really wanted to see the Red Wings win a Prospect Tournament Championship since they have never won one before. At Centre Ice hanging in David's Rink this the Banner of all the teams that have won it along with the years and I just though it would be really cool to have a Wings Banner up there. What really sucked was the Red Wings Prospects played just absolutely FANTASTIC in the 1st and 2nd Periods, I mean they really played great but someone didn't send them the memo that you have to play a full 60 minutes of hockey to win a game and they let in 3 unanswered goals in the 3rd period. I give full props to the Minnesota Wild Prospects as they battled very well but the Detroit Red Wings played them much much harder through more of the game. It was good to see a lot of faces around the NHL. I still wish there were more Fans who attended the Tournament becasue it really is quality hockey to watch. The Detroit Red Wings Training Camp was just as good as it always is. Great to see the familar faces again and see some newer ones as well. It was very tough for me to leave Traverse City personally becuase I just love it up there. I really could live there. It is very beautiful and everything I would need would be there. I suggest anyone and everyone go check out Camps next season or even just go to TC for a visit. They have some great Wines good hockey even without the Red Wings and some great scenery.
