In Topic: Official - Little Caesars Arena

...then our Griffins would have to go through some sort of reality show crap to make it to the big team. 

 

 

You joke, but if done right I would watch the s*** out of that show.

I don't hate the name, but I don't love it either.  When you have a classic non-corporate arena name for all these years, anything would sound weird though.  It'll get shortened by the fans though.  The official name is the Little Caesars Arena, but everyone will just call it Caesars, which doesn't sound so bad.  

 

 

Yeah...there's a problem with that...this is right across the river:

We're gonna have to call it the LCA or give it some other nickname.

Seems​ The I's have added $177M in upgrades to Cadillac Centre© in order to make it the most fan friendly and event friendly Arena in the NHL and the country.  I really love the practice/amateur Hockey facility concept.  Sure that means the kids won't be playing on the NHL ice (like they do at the Joe) but I am sure it will still be just as exciting to play there! (and yes, I am sticking with my name until otherwise named something else! :lol:)

 

People sure are going to be confused when they ride the people mover:

In Topic: 3-on-3 Lineups

09 October 2015 - 10:22 AM

The 3-on-3 OT last night in Tampa got me thinking about who we would/should put in our OT lineup. I came up with this...

 

Current Roster w/injuries 

 

      Goose-Zetterberg            Tatar-Richards          Larkin-Abby?

              Kronwall                         Green                       Smith

 

I'd be kind of worried about having Smith out there on the third pairing but he has the speed to push the pace. Larkin and Abby are both good defenders so they can help cover up some of his mistakes. 

 

Healthy Roster

 

   Zetterberg-Pasha                Larkin-Tatar              Franzen-Goose

       Kronwall                              Green                         Dekeyser

 

 

There are so many different combinations we could use. I would love to get Pulks out there with his shot but he worries me on the defensive end. If Jurco can have a resurgence under Blashill he would be a good option out there as well. If Jensen had made the team I would've put him out there in a heartbeat. 

 

 

 

 

No way in hell I'd put Franzen out there in 3-on-3 OT, he's a pylon and would be blown past in a heartbeat and boom, game is over. Get someone fast like Ferraro out there instead.


In Topic: 3 Bold Predictions for 2015-16

05 October 2015 - 01:01 PM

1. Larkin gets sent down when Dats/Helm return, but the next time he gets called up he stays up for good
2. Green returns to prominence and makes the ASG
3. Boston gets a top-3 draft pick from the lotto
