Awww. It's like a member of the franchise has passed.

The Joe won't be the same without him.

A moment of silence on Thursday would be most appropriate.

i just told my friend the same thing. we are going to the game together so i would hope for one. He was there for 30+ years, through good times and bad.

they should sell orange hats with the winger wheel on them.

Rest well Orange Hat guy, and may your room in heaven get NHL Center Ice in high def (I can't imagine heaven has shows in low def)

Detroit would like to welcome the Eastern Conference

Condolences to his family and friends.

Money on the board:  Current total: $8

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

He wasnt at the home opener nor the colorado game, so i guess he has been sick for a while now.

WHAT the Cuss is up with that Mo Cheese Granholm commercial a few videos in?!?! Actually you have to watch the video with Mo Cheese on the dugout and then it is the 3rd video at the bottom after. So what's up with that!?!

That's a real bummer... he seemed like a real nice guy. I never talked to him, but I did pass him in the Concourse a couple of time and I'd smile and say "Hello", and he'd return the favor.
