In Topic: Favorite arena

09 December 2014 - 04:02 PM

Been to 3 NHL barns but only seen games at 2 - The Joe (dozens of games over the years), United Center (4 or 5 games in the last 10 or so years), and the ACC (only took a tour). The Joe is the best of those, hands down.


Last game I saw at UC was a few years back when Toews and Kane were rookies and the bandwagon was starting to take off, they finally sold out their arena that night. The Sharks were on a winning streak, and ended up winning the game against Chicago, after Chicago's last-second tying goal went in off a guy's glove and was disallowed. Everyone in the arena was pissed, and it was CLEARLY not a good goal, but the jackasses weren't having it. My dad, best friend, and I were just sitting there laughing at them. (Found the game - http://blackhawks.nh...p?id=2007021026). Aside from that, the arena was clearly built with the Bulls in mind, and the views aren't nearly as good as they could be.

Sorry to disappoint you hopeful gents, but my boss is a Wings fan, so he said I could get out of work early for it  :siren:  :lol:

Wow thanks!!! I saw the PM after I woke up in the middle of the night last night, just couldn't respond immediately. I'm still working out details with my boss - if he can let me out early I'll be able to go (he usually can), if not then I won't be able to. Being 3 hours away from the Wings is one of the only bad things about moving from Flint to Holland!!


I'll let you know as soon as I find out. In the mean time, please do find someone to be on call.

In Topic: Mantha getting closer.

24 November 2014 - 03:52 PM

If you do watch it, let me know what you think. I listened to Mantha's first two games, but Saturday was the first I've seen. I suppose he could have had an off-game, especially playing a home-and-home like they did. Regardless, I really hope he turns out like we all expect him to.


Edit: I suppose another thing I should have taken into consideration was that Lake Erie was hacking Mantha after basically every play stoppage he was on the ice for, which probably wore on him as the night went on. Also after he scored there was a bit of a scrum and he end ended up on top of a Lake Erie player and gave him a shot in the mouth, so that was good. 


Edit 2: I should also clarify that while Mantha was loafing, it was typically when he just didn't seem to know what to do. He backchecked/forechecked just fine, but just seemed off when the puck was in the neutral zone or in transition and not near him.
