#2036735 9/25 Pre-season GDT: Red Wings at Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by 55fan on 25 September 2010 - 07:17 PM

Wow. Hard to believe these are our "guys with something to prove" against their top ones.

Ozzie sharp so far!

They're still not playing Kane? Is he too good for the preseason or something?

Hasn't gotten to the rink. His car broke down and he's waiting for the cab to show up.


#2036715 Tonights line-up against Chicago

Posted by 55fan on 25 September 2010 - 05:20 PM

What's Tatar doing on the checking line?

Checking.


I have a feeling that the ice times will be pretty even for all lines tonight. I also have a feeling that they are going to be in different roles on the PP and PK. I think tonight is sort of an audition.

Yay! We win!

Yeah, I know. It's just preseason, but as a Lions fan, I like to be able to say that as much as possible.

Just got home could someone give me a quick summary of what has happened so far please

Younglings looking good. Not much amazing happening.

Refs waiving off Wings goals already.

Helm hitting posts.

YAY- no. What? Poop.

Forget that.

I'm glad we got Joey back. I liked him.

Too many players get their number retired...

I think he meant just waiting for a bit- like a period of mourning rather than retirement.

Does anyone have a problem with Salei wearing Probert's number?

Personally, I wish they waited a few years to start handing it out again.

Had he been the last one to wear it, I might, but I've gotten used to seeing it on Chelios, so it's not as jarring. Still reminds me, though.

Here I thought I was the only one muting the music. I guess it isn't just because I'm old. I don't know- to me those modern singers sound constipated.

Missed most of the first because I forgot to translate the time from E to C.

Go Wings!!!


#2036347 And his fists have been placed in Bert's locker.....

My bf has had traumatic brain injury. It is frustrating at times. Cheers to the Probert family for their donation. Wishing comfort, peace, and happiness in the days to come for them.


#2035968 The NHL's Marketing Skills

Posted by 55fan on 23 September 2010 - 04:17 PM

The NHL needs to take the "Hockey is for everyone" approach in their marketing.

You've got all sorts of players out there.

Market Duncan Keith to the "old-time, smashmouth, lose some teeth and keep fighting" crowd.

Market Chris Pronger as a villain to the "watch to hope to see a dirty bastard get a beatdown" crowd.

Market Pavel Datsyuk to the "watch for amazing skill and slick moves" crowd.

Market Ovie to the "want an approachable, easily recognizable hero with an outgoing personality" crowd.

Market Sid to the "teenage girls and NAMBLA members" crowd.


In all seriousness, this isn't anything new. During the Era of the Great One, it was rare to hear Yzerman's name outside of Detroit, and the only time we heard about Super Mario was when he got cancer.

That's a slight exaggeration, but to the average non-hockey fan, that's how it was. They knew Wayne. That's it.


#2035962 Bert shows some snarl

Posted by 55fan on 23 September 2010 - 03:57 PM

Bert doesn't have to worry about another Moore incident here. None of the other Wings will jump on whomever Bert fights after the guy is down.

Good for Bert standing up for Mule. Hopefully that sense of "brotherhood" is contagious.


#2035955 Bad Rep Immunity Thread

Posted by 55fan on 23 September 2010 - 03:44 PM

Bring back the negs! There's no point in having an immunity thread if there is no place where you're not immune.

Some posts are so idiotic that the only rational response is a neg.

Negs are the mainstay of our survival and the backbone of our society (as long as they aren't used against me personally, in which case they violate my right to Freedom of Speech, which I interpret as "I am able to say absolutely anything I want and no one can disagree with me and/or point out any fallacies and/or have a different opinion or they are violating my right and since I interpret it that way, it must be that way or it violates my right").

Zetterberg has a funny nose.
