Refreshed and got sound - best news thus far is 24/7 will do a "Road to the Classic" and will be televised in Canada on Sportsnet. Kenny just said they're pressuring both Lidstrom and Yzerman to play in the alumni game.  Lids was expected, but I'm surprised about Stevie. There will be 2 alumni games - over 90 players signed up to participate.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I think it would be a slap in the face to the fans if he didn't play in the alumni game.

Any chance the Wings could bring in Homer next season as a special adviser for the sole purpose of getting him face time on 24/7?

I hope he's playing in the Alumni game.

If they're going to try to convince Nick to play, his best friend will have to be there right?

These sweaters look amazing. Think it's about time I get myself a Datsyuk one to add to my collection.

I like the Wings alumni sweater and the Leafs current roster.  I just may break down and buy a Wings jersey for a change.

Both jerseys look amazing. With the exception of the Chicago Blackhawks jersey, logo and scheme, all other Original 6 jerseys are so classy and look brilliant. To see a retro incarnation of these 2, is pretty sweet. I'd also say the Leafs are probably my 2nd favorite jersey behind Detroit.

Love the jersey, will definitely have to pick one up.

I hope Stevie agrees to play, and I hope Feds is still coming over. I need to see him end his career in the Winged Wheel.

Kenny touched on that briefly, although he didn't mention Feds by name.  He said that most of the Russian Five had committed last year and they were hoping that would be the case this year.

Here's the thing now though...

I've heard speculation that there could be more than one outdoor game next year and I'm fairly certain the NHL would like to do that. Mainly because Leafs/Wings is not anyhting near a marquee matchup. I can see them setting up an LA/Vancouver game or something. This is another reason why Kenny dropped the ball over the last year. Who wants to watch the Leafs run over our worst team is 20 years at home? Our team will be on the biggest stage possible for the NHL and this is the team Kenny is throwing out there...awesome.

Also...if they are doing the jersey unveiling, they are probably using the ones leaked a few months ago. I think the really screwed that up too. Here's to hoping things brighten up a bit...

 

 

What? Thats exactly what it is, doesn't even matter if they are both 20 games under .500 when the game is played. 2 original six teams out doors is about as marquee as it gets.


"Hard Work Beats Talent When Talent Refuses to Work Hard"

 

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Remove the "Detroit" from that jersey and it's perfect. Still very nice, though.

So, this means that they got the "booze issue" settled?

It's a regular season game. Either don't attend or don't watch. Don't use something exciting like this as yet another excuse to berate Holland. If being a Wings fan is so miserable than go ahead and root for Toronto, they've put a great product on the ice year after year.
