October in the D!!!!!

 

Tigers in the playoffs, Lions In first place in the Black and blue division, Red Wings are starting a full year. 

 

All is well in the sports world. 

 

 

Drop the Puck!!!!!!!!!!

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.


Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

I guess that'd be the bright side of a brutal loss/losing streak.

 

Or looking forward to injuries.

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!!


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 just thought of something, what Tatar is scratched because babs wants to see how Bert and Sammy will play, because he knows what he will get from tots

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!

So the bottom 6 is a trainwreck.

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

Let's win, not suck, and all that other positive goodness.  Kick the season off on the right foot (or skate), as it were.

LGW! So pumped!

 

Hopefully that second-line can keep up with our first-line (or else Tats would gladly take Franzen's spot), and the bottom-six won't be as atrocious as they are shaping up to be. I'm especially excited to see how Dekeyser fairs this season. I'm hoping for a Calder-caliber showing, myself!

 

Hopefully they come out of the gates hard, take it to the East before they can adjust.

Everyone does that, at least I always assumed they did, but I know DTV does for sure.  Typically the first 3 weeks or so are always free.

 

I'm dying for this game to start.........at which time I will be bowling.  Damn you Wednesday.  Thank you DVR.
