Such an amazing time watching that. Probably the most fun I have ever had watching a game. So many emotions coming back. The only thing that could have made it any better would be seeing Stevie in the shootout. My guess is that Scotty asked him, and he turned it down.

 

But hold crap when did Homer learn those moves?

I think Shanny was motioning towards him too like really Steve? You sure? I'm not surprised, Steves modest to a fault sometimes but that's why we love him.

Awesome stuff, I'm happy to get to see Stevie on skates for maybe the last time. He didn't look too hot out there but it was still Stevie (I believe him when he says he hasn't skated since he retired). :tounge2: Sergei on the other hand still looks NHL caliber. Him and Slava skated circles around people out there. Mickey looked great too!

 

Actually Stevie did say in an interview after the first period it gave him the "itch" to play again.

That was thoroughly enjoyable. It was great to see the players I grew up watching reunited. So much history on the ice for both teams. Hopefully the return of Fedorov paves the way for the eventual retirement of 91. Seeing the Russian 5 reunited was a wonderful moment, and the screen blurred a bit. My wife even commented on how nice it was to include Konstantinov, as well as the respect given to Howe and Lindsay.

Part of me wishes they had done a 24/7-type thing with the alums.

It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

It;s understandable though. You could see him walking/skating today and you can tell his leg bothering him. It was amazing to see him in red and white again, and I will never fault him for not taking a go in the shootout. We have Homer for that anyway  :lol:

It was his feet that were hurting not his leg.

Anyone else surprised that they didn't call back Holmstrom shootout goal. He was clearly in the crease.

I was telling everyone that if were to go to any of these games it would have been the Alumni not the WC.

If we got them back and in game shape, and then had Kronner/Ericsson, Smith/DeKeyser rounding out our bottom pairs. With the forwards we have, there would be no stopping the Wings en route to the cup. Better than the 2008 squad IMO

Can't be better, YZERMAN was part of that team.

Really wish Stevie would've been on the ice when the Leads had an empty net. For gis last game in a Wings sweater I wish he could've gone out with a goal, considering the way the team went out in 06. But I guess the game wasn't about Steve, but about all of the greats.

I'm bummed I missed it. I'll have to scour youtube until I can find some bits and pieces. Might be hard to find the full game
