"You mad, Roy?"

He most likely beat his wife after that game. ALL JOKES ASIDE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS NOT FUNNY.

I've been optimistic that Helm, Abby, and Eaves (maybe?) would be able to take over the reigns pretty well, but looking at these pics reminds me of just how much of a force they were in their heyday.

Loved the grind line!

btw.. is there any video about the 2002 playoffs when Malts killed the penalty against the blues and Al MacInnis?

Great pics! Those years with DMac, Drapes, Maltbs in their prime may have been the best years to be a Wings fan, and best years to go to a game! Someone from the 50's may not think so, but the team we had from 96-02 = Awesome!

For the younger Wings fans, now's great too, but there was just something about that team. :cool:

Apparently Malts was at tonight's Griffins game. Wish I could have said hello.

He was. I saw him in the suite entrance and he said hi. He was waiting for the elevator when I walked in. :D

Edit: also saw bob McNamara in the entrance as well

definitely miss the camaraderie and the grit and the fire that those guys had. so much fun to watch. they really had each others backs. I just don't see that in our current roster much. maybe they just know its better to play on and not get caught up in the BS but its a lot of fun to watch and cheer for. I especially liked how Mac handled the light work if someone tried to take a shot at the top guys. It is a completely different era of hockey we are witnessing right now. I have a lot of mixed feelings about it.

Don't know about him, but with modern technology, I once checked my face book from a canoe.

Amazing world we live in now.

Our Grind Line was a 1 of a kind.... most put their grinders out against another teams weak link... we put our grind line against most teams best! I miss Drapes_ Malts_Mac = perfect 4th line

Here's a pic from McCarty's first game back in '08:

for some reason the idea of Lids and dmac talking/hanging out is really funny to me.
