#2675627 Doug Houda hired as an assistant coach

Posted by F.Michael on 10 May 2016 - 03:22 PM

 

He played for some of those fun Wings teams in the late 80's.  

While not very proficient - Houda was always game for a scrap...Maybe his passion will rub off on the club.

Wouldn't mind a Blues/Pens Cup Final.

Big win last night, and some good scraps at the end!




#2675040 Name That Band

That does work. It's not what I meant, though - I think my clue sucks. Think that you would have domesticate or _____ the animal in order for it to be a pet 

Tame Impala.

#2674399 Official - Little Caesars Arena

Basically. It was supposed to be a Red Wings arena but it's turned into a Little Caeser thing. Mike Illitch trolled us hard. 

 

Would be one thing if tax payer money wasn't involved. 

If Ilitch paid for the whole damn thing himself - call it whatever ya want.

 

Taxpayer $$$ being used, and this idea for nostalgia sorta led us to believe it wouldn't have any hokey name.

But that's just me. I'm a dreamer...who also played attention in civics class. Now if you'll excuse me, Living Colour's "Cult of Personality" just came on the radio and I need to go practice being slavish.

$5 says you were in diapers when that song came out in 1988.

I understand but ppl had to of known that it wasn't going to be,named the way they wanted it to be.

True - just that we expect more is all.

 

Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI might be the only pro sports facility not whored out once the Joe is demolished.....To me - that says alot.

The complaining on fb is ridiculous. It could have been named after a bank or something worse but it was named after the owners business who'd have thought smh

I personally believe that many fans hold the Ilitch family in higher regard, and naming it after one of their businesses only shows that they're like any other owner - $$$ talks.

 

Not that I can blame them - it's their business - just that I too would've preferred something more nostalgic.


Worst name ever ... with all the heritage and legends that put on a Wings jersey, they decide to go with that ... ahhhhhhh!   And for 20 years ??!!

Agreed.

 

I would've accepted 'Caesars Olympia', or 'Caesars Auditorium'.

#2673978 Possible Leak of Florida Panthers New Logo

How are the pre 99 and post 99 logos different?

1 of the cats has eyelashes?

Is it me, or does anyone else find it strange that the Eastern Conference is beginning round 2 of the playoffs when in fact there's game 7 to be played tomorrow night between the Preds/Ducks?

 

I understand much of this has to do with availability of the arenas, and such...

How can some of you still root for the Blues?  They're not playing the Hawks anymore.  

 

Go Stars!

Stars won in '99.

 

Blues haven't won at all.

 

I consider the Blues a bit 'Old School' in the sense that they were part of the 1st expansion back in 1967.

Detroit Red Wings continue to be the last team to have won the Cup in back-to-back seasons.

No more 'Chelsea Dagger' for the next several months.
