#2543034 10/21 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Canadiens 2 (OT)

Hells yeah. :). (raises his dram of the Macallan in salute).

Drinking some Benriach 12 yr here...Good stuff!




#2541590 Pavel Datsyuk update?

Posted by F.Michael on 16 October 2014 - 06:28 PM

With a 2nd degree shoulder separation - he needs the time to heal (as said 4 to 6 weeks).

 

I'm all for giving him 2 to 3 weeks from now to heal...What's the point of him returning too soon only to risk re-injury, and then sit out for the rest of the season?

What will become of the metal troughs from the men's bathrooms?

I just stick with the Center Ice package, and watch the Wings in HD on my tv.

I still think Smith should have fought Chara.

That's 1 way of getting Ouellette into the line up.




#2539484 Your hockey-rituals before season openers

Posted by F.Michael on 09 October 2014 - 07:41 PM

I'm 44.....Married with 3 little boys.....Right now I'm in a t-shirt, and boxer shorts watching the Wings game.....There is no ritual for me - just dealing with day-to-day stuff until the puck drops, and then - if I'm lucky - I can plop my fat butt on the couch, and watch some hockey :lol:




#2539313 Gotta Love Bryz

Posted by F.Michael on 09 October 2014 - 01:53 PM

Gotta be honest - that HBO 24/7 between the Flyers/Rangers was hilarious, and alot more entertaining than what we had last year - much of it to do with Bryz.

A great American poet once said "Is it worth it, let me work it, I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it". 

 

Truer words have never been spoken.  And in that spirit of flipping it and reversing it I'm going to guess Jurco scores on a sexy feed from Tatar. 

 

God Bless the Detroit Red Wings, and God Bless Missy Elliott.
 

Was she friends with Betsy Ross?




#2539237 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by F.Michael on 09 October 2014 - 10:27 AM

 

We're certainly not as  physical as Boston.  Good thing we don't play them 82 times every season.  Also, I don't think Franzen is as big a pattycake as everyone makes him out  to be.  He battled along the walls all the time.  Babcock wouldn't play him as much as he does if Franzen didn't. 

I dunno.....Maybe it's the scotch I'm usually enjoying in the evening hours when I watch hockey.....Franzen doesn't look like he's giving 100% a good portion of the night, and he seems to be getting pushed, or knocked down along the boards more often than not.

 

It's been said numerous times before...Babs is more or less forced to give the Mule top 6 ice time since there's few options...I'd much rather see the young guys get more ice time.




#2539215 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by F.Michael on 09 October 2014 - 09:07 AM

Babs is really helping Ian white's, I mean Stephen Weiss's, career by benching him. What don't you ppl understand about that?

Isn't Weiss German for white?

Scary.

And with 'Babcock' being an English surname, and 'Weiss' being German surname.....Maybe - just maybe - Babs has a grudge against zee Germans.

Actually, that kinda depresses me when I look at tonight's 4th line... 

Hell - it depresses me when ya compare the entire team.


My daughter and I have been to many games but this will be our first home opener!  Hope they win!

#2539202 How different things could have been

Posted by F.Michael on 09 October 2014 - 08:11 AM

It just seems so hard to believe that there was a time that Yzerman was considered a guy who was a good player, but couldn't lead his team through the playoffs. I was only 14 at the time so I really didnt look at things with the perspective I do now, I can only imagine the frustration in '96 amongst management losing in the playoffs after the record setting season they had. Luckily they stuck with him and were rewarded with 3 cups in the next 6 seasons.

To be honest - I believe Mike & Marian Ilitch had alot of sway when it came down to it...They drafted Stevie, and wanted him to stay in Detroit...Glad they did.




#2539094 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by F.Michael on 08 October 2014 - 02:15 PM

Helm, weiss and Kindl are as expendable of players we've ever had

I can understand Kindl, but Helm, and Weiss?

 

With Helm - I felt he was just starting to show us what he was capable of when the injury bug hit him, and keeps hitting him over, and over.

 

Weiss I think needs a few dozen games in good health before I'd toss him onto the scrap heap.

Not sure. I was like 11 then.  Would make sense, since the Wings got embarrassed in the Finals and were likely willing to explore options to put themselves over the edge.  They might have figured Fedorov was the future of the franchise and was ready to take over for Yzerman.  Yashin would have been a lot younger than Yzerman and was another Russian.  Like I said, I don't remember, but I can see the thinking there at the time.  

Geez - I feel like an old man here.

The state nerds you know that new TSN guys who seem to provide nothing else, than stupid tables filled with math stuff instead of easy to understand (Goals, Assists, Point Totals) things. I mean, everyone can sit in the basement and play around with excel sheets they didn't need to hire someone for that.

I had to +1 this because it made me laugh.

 

Frank - don't you ever change!
