Looks great, Mike. You've set the bar high for the year. Hopefully, The Wings can come out looking as good as the GDT. I'm expecting a whole lot of odd man rushes, some breakaways and plenty of blown coverages. Expecting an 80's era score tonight. Hope Brunner gets at last one tonight, to pop his cherry, and hope Franzen finds this game exciting enough to score. Drop the puck. LGW.


Mule needs to step it up this year. No more being one of the top power forwards in hockey for a two week span and then be completely MIA for the next two weeks.

All the more reason to waive him. That was Troy Crowder's number.

Fantastic work on the OP. Not expecting the most well-played game tonight, more likely we'll see a battle of two teams trying to find their timing and getting their game back. Individual mistakes or individual skill will likely play a large part in the outcome. The Blues have a great looking team this year again and it's a good test even though the first game is likely to be a crapshoot. Still I'm optimistic, 5-3 Wings. Goals by Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Smith, Kronwall and Brunner. Let's Go Wings !

GDT looks amazing, I know a lot of work must go into making all of that, so thanks!


This will be a tough game, the Blues are a good team and have very well balanced lines. Having Helm out is pretty significant against a team like this. I miss #5 already, but I'm excited for the new era.




Things I'm most looking forward to seeing:


Pav and Z back together.

Brunner on the top line. 

New special teams.

Tootoo fight.

Wings win 14-3.  Goal and 13 assists for Datsyuk.

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

The GDT looks great. But why is there "goals", "assists" etc. under Team Stats? Shouldn't it be "wins", "losses", "points" etc.?


I can't wait for the game. The dumb thing is that I can't watch it live. I'll probably need to watch a recording of it tomorrow and stay away from all the hockey news all morning.

Tootoo and Smith fight, Brunner and Flip with goals 


Why would Brunner and Smith fight? I certainly hope not, they are on the same team ...  but my money is on Smith.


GO WINGS!!!.. why does the game have to be so late? I want hockey NOOOOWW!!!

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.

We damn well better win.  I didn't sit through another stupid effing lockout to watch them lose.

Mike the GDT is straight sick. Thanks again for being someone we count on.

Been waiting long enough. Hope the Wings come out flying. Play with the passion this board has for them. Lets drop the puck boys, and lets start this season off with a W.
