Can't wait to be back at the Joe tonight! This is probably the most excited I have been heading into a season since 2008-2009. Expecting another successful season from the Wings coming off that playoff run. Wish Nyquist and Tatar were playing, but maybe those three veterans will come through better than anticipated. Still hasn't really sunk in that Alfredsson is going to be out there wearing the winged wheel.

Let's Go Red Wings!

Im not one to wish injury, but i hope sammy has his usual in 1 game, then break a finger luck so tatar can be forced into the lineup.

Always a good day when Wings hockey is back. I'm still a little pissed about Nyquist and Tatar not being in the line up. Was really looking forward to the young guys playing all season. Oh well, hopefully sooner or later they'll be in full time. Go Wings!

Bolded part either means that it's October or that the Apocalypse is coming.

Also, rumour has it that the Pistons still exist, although I can't find any basketball fans to verify that.

I'm ok with Cleary, Bert, and Sammy in the line-up. I just wish we could have five lines.

Maybe Sammy can be a defenseman.

All right, everybody, let's bring it back to hockey, please. It's a game day thread, not the water cooler. :P

GO WINGS!!

Re: That Captains & Leaders video,

I've been listening to that Temper Trap song a lot lately! How awesome that they used it here.

Unfortunately I'll miss this game due to work, as I suspect will happen quite a bit this year. Excited to have hockey back, though. Remember the rules, folks, keep things on topic and we'll all get along nicely. ;)


So NBCSN is calling this a rivalry game. So I guess the word rival is officially meaningless.

I hope Kronwall and his defensive partner rival Ericsson have a strong showing.

Maybe Weiss and his rival winger Franzen can get into gear early. :glare:

It has been for a while. Like most other terms, marketing has completely ruined meaning of words in general. Remember the Minnesota-Detroit "rivalry game" on NBC last year?

I also don't like that entities try to "make" rivalries. They happen when they happen. I don't expect a rivalry to open with Buffalo tonight, but I do expect some to evolve between Boston, Toronto, maybe Montreal.

But if they want to spark a rivalry tonight, I'm all for it!

Point of interest: Alfredsson is a Sabres-killer.

While he’s sure to spark some heat when they play Ottawa, Alfie has killed the Sabres in his career scoring 42 of his 426 career goals against them, the most against any one team. Don’t think Sabres fans aren’t fully aware of that.

Maybe Sammy can be a defenseman.

I've actually suggested that since he plays the point on the PP.

Mostly I meant having him on the roster as a 7th d-man to help keep us cap compliant, not actually having him play as a d-man.

All teams who played yesterday had bad defense and goaltending, hopefuly we can do better. On the other hand most teams had good looking offenses. Watching Montreal's "kid line" play great was annoying. We were supposed to have a kid line of our own..

Still, I don't think our bottom 6 is necessarily terrible. I'll give Sammy, Bert and Cleary atleast this game to prove the deserve to be in the lineup.

I hope they are ready;

Bert and Sammy only played 11 games total last year.

That is a lot of down time and a short camp for them to be ready.

Looking forward to see if they can be the players of old.

If not, bring on the next generation.

Go Wings
