So hyped for this game, it's great to have the season back!

On a side note, I'm on the same boat as casey holmstrom up there. If anyone happens to have a solid stream, could you PM it to me too? I know of a good place to find streams and they usually have Wings games but sometimes the quality isn't great or they don't seem to stream some games. Thanks!

I want to be mad at hockey, but no way can I give up the Red Wings. So stoked for tonight. Excited about our forwards, nervous about the defense. Especially looking forward to watching Smith and Brunner play.

GDT looks terrific -- really nicely done. Let's Go Red Wings!

Switch Miller and Tootoo...

Tootoo vs Reaves

Detroit wins 3:1

Franzen, Kronwall and Brunner (empty net).

Tootoo vs Reaves? Well, that fight would be one-sided.

But I do got Detroit with the "upset". After all, most of the "experts" have practically declared St. Louis the champs. That'll be the day.

Ok, I've decided I'm going to allow myself to watch on TV, so I'll be watching tonight. I'm interested in how things will go without Lidstrom, and I'm looking forward to Tootoo as a Wing.

As for buying tickets and merchandise, not a chance. I'm not giving myself a deadline for spending money, all I can say is I have no interest in financially supporting the league. Bettman can suck it, and I encourage everyone else to do the same!

All fans need to do is stay away for a couple weeks, and the greedy owners will get the message. I'm disapointed to hear how fast some team's tickets are being sold, but I'm not surprised. All that complaining and threats for 6 months, and as soon as they new CBA is signed fans run back! So much for the fans taking a stand.

It works out for me because I'm a non-local, and I've never really gotten into the whole special NHL TV package thing (Game Center, Center Ice). For these kinds of games (i.e. ones that aren't nationally televised) I typically just follow along with this thread and a box score page (nhl.com or espn.com or tsn.ca), and maybe a radio feed if I can find it. So basically I'm cheap and lazy when it comes to following along.[/badfan]

Fantastic GDT, Mike!

I feel a little slimy. I was so mad about the lockout I was swearing off all things hockey and NHL. No support from me! Going to Cheli's Chili in Clinton Twp. to watch the game with some folks from here. I will stand strong and not directly support either side monetarily. No merchandise or games as a protest.

Back on topic...

Both teams rusty because of no exhibition games and short training camp. It will alternate between comical and nerve wracking. TooToo impresses his critics here and not one wooden whistle is heard. Wings prevail and win 5-3.

Sorry but that sounds like a cop-out. You're still investing time, and emotion into the team.

Heard an interesting case for Franzen: that he doesn't like pressure, performs best when it's off. Which might, at least, explain why he seems so excited about the 48 to come. (No one is expecting this team to do any sort of real damage.)

Anyone know of any streams for the games today? I got rid of cable but still want to watch the games. I thought about NHL game center but it will be blacked out.

Since it's been a while since hockey's been around, here's an update on the forum rules:

· DON'T post links to torrent or illegal streaming websites. LetsGoWings.com does not condone the sharing of illegal content on this web site and all links will be removed. (This also includes instructions on how to set up or view illegal streaming feeds without overtly linking to them.)

Obviously what happens in PM's we have no control over. But for liability issues don't want the forum threads to be a place where illegal activity is discussed.
