I typically dont rag on our guys and never being a NHL goalie makes my opinion fleeting but my god Gus comes out of the net to center ice sometimes.
I can't rag on Gus, he's played better than Howard this year. He also made a bunch of key saves in the first to keep it 1-0. Howard or gus it does not matter who is in net, you can't give up stretches were the opponent out shoots you 9-0. That melt down was bound to happen with the way they came out in the third.
I am just curious to know what people's thoughts were of the Entire event. I thought overall the NHL/Detroit did an excellent job. Some of my thoughts,
-Really enjoyed the Fanfest next to comercia it was cool seeing the Question and Answer sessions with the alumni
-The HOF exhibit was really nice (kind of crowded)
- The Parking for the Winter Classic was not as bad as I thought it would be. Paid $5 to park in Downtown Ann Arbor and walked to the stadium. We did have the option of taking the shuttle though.
-Michigan and Michigan State did not make it to the GLI championship game
-The atmosphere was electric at the winter classic. Both fan bases sang their national anthem
-I went to the concession stand twice, waited 20 minutes both times, just to be told they were out of hot chocolate.
-The Lines for the bathrooms were horrendous, if you could even find the line. Even at a UofM game they are not that bad. The main issue was everyone was coming up from the stands during intermission, and just made it horrible to navigate to the bathrooms. They could have brought in porta-johns.
Is Parking at the Winter Classic going to be difficult? During Football season majority of the parking is on the golf course, and other grassy areas With the snow it would be difficult to keep these lots open. What are some good options that won't cost an arm and a leg to park at?
8.3 Blood A player who is bleeding or who has visible blood on his equipment or body shall be ruled off the ice at the next stoppage of play. Such player shall not be permitted to return to play until the bleeding has been stopped and the cut or abrasion covered (if necessary). It is required that any affected equipment and/or uniform be properly decontaminated or exchanged.
Why was shaw allowed to be on the ice for the final minutes? The cut was not covered, and the cut continued to bleed.
Chicago has been getting away with murder these playoffs. Still amazed that the slew foot by shaw did not get any attention from the league. I seriously think the reaction of NBC plays a big part in if it get looks at or not.
