There has been a lot of negativity on LGW surrounding the Wings lately, so with Thanksgiving right around the corner I thought we could all post some things we are thankful for as in regards to the Detroit Red wings Franchise.
I'll Start off with one and leave the rest up to you.

I'm thankful for the team's move to the Eastern Conference or we would be struggling to keep the playoff streak alive.

What are you guys Thankful for?

I'm thankful for a team that is so consistently good that our problem for the past 22 years is figuring out deeper playoff runs, instead of just how to get into the playoffs.

I'm also thankful for the ability to laugh at those who don't think that's good enough.

That we have the most amazing player to watch in 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

My family are Wings fans.  The last thing my dad and I did together before he passed was attend a Wings game.  My mom and sister and I will be going to another game this spring.  I've met some seriously wonderful people here on LGW.

 

I'm thankful for the fun and good times I've had rooting for the Wings.  Sure, it could have been another team, with another website and another set of people, but I'm thankful that I have come into contact with the fans of one of the most storied franchises in sports.

 

I'm thankful that I'm now living in this internet age where I can get to "know" the players via media that wasn't available some years ago.  I'm thankful that the players and coaches take the time for interviews for us, and that we can see and hear all about them year-round.

 

I'm also thankful that they don't seriously suck any more.


Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$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

My thanksgiving was in October, but I'm thankful that goose gave babs and Holland the proverbial middle finger within 17 seconds of his first game :)

I am thankful my father turned down a promotion which would have involved a move from Detroit to Pittsburgh when I was a kid.

Excellent. The only question now is will The Ginga Ninja be referred to as secondary scoring or primary scoring?

Mrazek? I...wouldn't get overly attached to him; I think there's a reasonable chance he won't be with us for very long.

Wait, who's The Ginga Ninja??? Nyquist? He's not a ginger, is he? Or are you talking about Alfie? I'M SO CONFUSED. EXISTENTIAL CRISIS.


EDIT: Wait, you're right - he IS a ginger! But, in my defense, he looks kinda borderline.

Nyquist is, isn't he? I mean not like mule or Sedins, but...enough to make it a perfect nickname, yeah?

He plays too much like a ninja and looks enough like a Ginga...so, yeah, he's our awesome Ginga Ninja.

Just watched his post game interview: What a class act. He is pure class and bad ass.

I think he will be.  I think Holland would be even a bigger fool if he let him get away because I've watched Jake Patterson and he isn't even at the level Petr was when he was in the OHL. :thumbdown:

I'm thankful for Helm's return and that his back problems didn't damage his career permanently. 

 

I'm thankful that we aren't all Panthers or Flames fans or have to deal with that level of team management. 

 

I'm thankful to Hockeytown and FlashyG providing such awesome GDT's consistently and that Abdelkader makes such a good woman for the sake of humor. 

 

I'm thankful for beer and pizza.

Mrazek played on a better team in the O...Patterson will be just fine with a decent defense in front of him
