I liked 55fan's idea of the Las Vegas Crapshooters.




#2535024 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

From TSN:
 

 
 
There you have it: six feet from the horse's mouth.


I decline to comment. What is being said is not confirmed nor can it be identified as the absolute truth, it's also unreasonable to assume it is false, we will evaluate where we are when the time becomes appropriate and adjust accordingly. The main concern has and always will be the growth and financial health of the nhl, therefore we cannot and will not comment at this time.


#2534946 Ice Bucket ALS Challenge: Bettman edition

Posted by TheXym on 26 August 2014 - 02:42 PM

Our faculty just did it, I'm the one towards the end of the line with the Dream Theater shirt. Over $350 so far, staff can donate until Friday. Not as good as the administration with the front bucket loader but still for a good cause. The video (and the administration's) is on the school web page, www.masd.info

My principal liked the idea, but after his predecessor challenged him the next day, he went way above and beyond, roping in several other administrators to do it in a BIG way and donate $1,000. Video is on the school homepage, www.masd.info

I, and any other brave faculty members, will be doing it Tuesday during lunch of our inservice.


#2534765 Sharks enter training camp with no C or A's

IMO, and this is coming from a spoiled Red Wing standpoint, once you give a guy a C you mark him as that for his career. You don't take it back and you don't trade him (Unless things go horribly wrong you're the Dallas Stars).

 

;)

 

Sharks post-season is always a disappointing spectacle... perhaps they thought they would start out the year in chaos, and reverse psychology would kick in?




#2534696 Zetterberg Foundation fundraiser

Posted by DeGraa55 on 21 August 2014 - 03:25 PM

 
Down to earth guys, loaded with money who seem to really care about others not so lucky and REALLY wanting to help out no only when the cameras are there.


I'm no NBA fan at all but it's foolish to think only nhl players donate money to charity.


I hate lebron but you know "his decision" that was on Espn. All money made went to charity. So good did come from him stroking his ego.

#2534496 Lidstrom honoured today with plaque next to Yzerman

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 August 2014 - 03:03 PM

I had a chance to go the HHOF when I was about 22.  Back then, I was a much bigger hockey fan than I am today (I watched every game televised), but I didn't know as much about the game's history and its players.  Sure, I knew Gretzky, Howe, Richard, etc, but not that much otherwise.  

 

Nine years later, I don't watch as much hockey anymore (thanks Bettman), but I'd love to go back to the HHOF, because I know more about the game's history and the players who are enshrined there.  I would appreciate it more.    

 

Anyway, that's what I thought when I saw Lidstrom's plaque.  That and the fact that it looks more like Clint Eastwood than Lidstrom.   ;)

This is such a surreal position to be in. Thanks PlayMaker and everyone.

Thanks to you, T.  Your attitude is amazing.  I got involved with ALS charities two years ago after a close friend was diagnosed.  If you have a favorite charity near your home, by all means, don't be shy.  Let us know.  I'm in Michigan and do the ALS walks here.  But if there's a local chapter or a specific charity that you'd prefer, post the info on it.

 

Think of all the money that'd be raised if the posters here had to donate a dollar for every time they bashed Cleary, criticized Holland, complained about Franzen, etc  :)

Very classy move by Danny Cleary. This video seems to highlight why the Wings felt he is such a great locker room presence. Huge kudos for putting up the donation information and putting together a professionally done video that may end up getting some airplay down the road to help the cause.
