Does anyone know if Gamecenter will show this? Or am I going to have to find a stream around to watch it :(

Nice tribute GDT MIkey.


I'd assume if Legwand plays he'll be centering the top line, eager to see what he brings to the table. 


More importantly, it's Lidstrom night. I'd like to see this GDT remain about the game and the legend that is Nick Lidstrom, and not an extension of the Legwand trade thread with ongoing bashing and complaining about him all game. 


Nick is receiving the utmost respect by never having his number worn again in a Wings sweater, and it's well deserved. May #5 hang among the other legends and it be a great and victorious night.


Wings win 5-1. 



I will add Legwand parts to the GDT in a positive light, like if he makes a really nice play or scores a nice goal, ya know to drag us all to his corner.  Gotta support the new guy.  As for Lids, so bittersweet.  My all-time favorite Dman, likely along with many on this site.  Gonna be an emotional one tonight.  Go Wings!

I like this team.

Hello everyone. 


Go Wings.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

I plan to start crying at approximately 6:10 EST if anyone would like to join me. Wailing and throwing one's self on the floor will follow shortly after at approximately 6:18, followed by refreshments (whiskey) and snacks (a tub of ice cream) in the lobby. Please RSVP ASAP so I can ensure there is enough to go around. May YFMB be with us all tomorrow.

Especially the Wings, because if they lose on Nick Lidstrom night that would suck hard.

I would like to amend this invitation for those of you who have RSVP'd:

Crying will commence immediately, I repeat IMMEDIATELY upon reading the plethora of articles being released online regarding the amazing career of Nick Lidstrom. Wailing and throwing one's self on the floor has been moved up to 6:05, and refreshments and snacks have been moved up to whatever time is the earliest at which I can legally partake. If this frees up those of you who would have been otherwise unable to attend, please feel free to RSVP at this time

Thank you.



Just look at how he hangs his sunglasses from his banana hammock in that last pic.  This guyf****** rules. --kipwinger


RIP MidMichSteve.  Save us all a dram.

Count me in, BoS.  I cried over the GDT.  Beautiful job, Mikey... :wub:


I am sure the ceremony will be awesome, and beyond well-deserved.  I adored Nick as did we all, and miss him every single game.  I do hope we don't suffer the dreaded pre-game ceremony curse and consequently suck tonight.  I am hoping the guys will be anxious to not poop on Nick's special night, and win this one for the Perfect Human.

My understanding is that NHL Network will broadcast the ceremony prior to the game. The NHL Network stated that they will start the broadcast at 6:30 tonight. With that being said, if you have gamecenter I am almost certain the game is blacked out on gamecenter.

I'll be recording the FSD feed and will have it posted somewhere, probably on the site I run....maybe youtube as well.


However the Red Wings will have it up afterwards: http://redwings.nhl.com/


Also, has anyone been over at HFboards, this was done by FlashyG:


I thought that was very well done.

Just called up Pulkkinen despite the fact less than 24 hours ago Holland said the kids were log jammed and guys like him and Jarnkrok would have no shot anytime soon.

Going to watch the ceremony for sure but not the game. I have a feeling they are going to blow this special day for our #5 by losing so I'd rather end it on a high note. Man watching this guy for the last time at the JLA will be so tough. Lidas could still play and would be hands down our best defender.

Could we give Lids a one day contract to play and help the team out?
