#2685571 2016 World Cup of Hockey thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 September 2016 - 10:57 AM

Yep, I had the same question. Apparently they wanted to be able to showcase kids 25 and under on a team, PLUS have the older vets play (USA and CANADA)

 

I seem to remember hearing that, but since forgot it.  What a joke of a tournament format. They may as well have a team full of goons or a team full of celebrities who can play hockey (basically Canadian celebrities).




#2685363 Mrazek's "Farewell to the Joe" Mask for 2016/2017

And he was born, and is now interred, in St. Petersburg. 

 

I can only assume that means that Datsyuk is actually Rasputin.

 

You sure about that?

He's bit underrated amongst fans.  

 

I thought it was the other way around, honestly.  He's a plug.  Just happens to be a young plug.

Trouba means "pipe" in Russian.  Kinda funny.

Howard's mask should resemble a flat tire.

 

That's harsh.  You're already in mid season form.

per @drosennhl

 

Zetterberg out of World Cup. Holland said he hurt knee training. Will likely miss start of DET camp. Plans to be ready for start of season.

 

 

Golf tournament

 

Datsyuk got hurt last year before the season too.  What is it with our offseason program?  Either that or Zetterberg just doesn't want to play and needed an excuse.   


Hang it up Z.

 

Even The Undertaker is in better shape than him.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 August 2016 - 04:08 PM

I got my tickets today, next January I'll be attending games vs Pittsburgh, Montreal, Boston and Rangers. I'm even gonna go to a Griffins vs Cleveland Monsters in Grand Rapids. I'm so excited.

 

Wow.  That doesn't sound cheap.  Original 6 teams and Crosby.  Have fun.  




#2685104 Prospect Givani Smith scores Hat Trick in BioSteel Camp

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 August 2016 - 11:50 AM

If he can develop into Wayne Simmonds - wow : in couple of years we should have kind of roster :

Mantha - Larkin - Smith
Svechnikov - AA - Bertuzzi
Abdelkader - Nielsen - Z
Helm - LG - "BEEF"

Tatar, Nyquist, Jurco, Pulks traded for defensive help.

We will have most expensive 3rd line in NHL.

 

My favorite player on that roster is BEEF.

Yupp, I'm going with my dad as well (his first time too) Would've been nice when we were a better team, but the last year of the Joe is still special.

 

I'm still planning on coming to Calgary and watching a Wings game with you.  ;)




#2685070 Single Game Tickets Pre Sale

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 August 2016 - 05:59 PM

That's my case. I've been waiting over 17 years to attend to a game at the Joe. I'm looking in the $300 usd range for the game against Pittsburgh. vs the Canadiens and Bruins I'd probably get either SRO or upper level.

 

I'm kicking myself for going now instead of going when my favorites played (like Yzerman, Fedorov, Lidstrom, etc).  I shouldn't have sat on my ass.  Still, I'm excited to actually go to the arena. It's like Mecca for me.  Every Wings fan must make this journey at least once in a lifetime.

That's a great spot to see everything. The only spot it might be an issue, is if you're in 207 or 208. That's where the main camera that they use for 75% of the game is. There are a few seats in that area where the view can be partially obscured, but I honestly think that row 10 is above that. And I'm pretty sure that most of those seats are STH seats, anyway.

 

Thanks for the feedback.  I'm glad to be going with my Dad, but if I went alone, I could have gotten a really good seat in the lower section.  People from out of town who only go to one game in a lifetime (like myself) don't care about how much it will cost.  

 

If I lived in Detroit and was a regular, I wouldn't be thrilled about paying that much for two tickets in the upper section.  




#2684633 Ryspayev Should Be Banned.. Disgusting.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 August 2016 - 12:22 PM

Lot of sarcasm about Ott tbh. Clearly not the same player he was.

 

Ott has never been a good fighter.  He'd have trouble with Abdelkader.  




#2684620 Ryspayev Should Be Banned.. Disgusting.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 August 2016 - 10:00 AM

Realistically I think he'd get wrecked by NHL fighters in a "fair" fight.

 

So he'd fit in nicely in Detroit.  




#2684044 Mrazek avoids arbitration... signs 2 year deal

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 July 2016 - 11:33 AM

That is a pretty good deal.  Holland must have brought Luca Brasi to the negotiating table.

Whitney - Modano - Grigorenko

Leino - Weiss - Bertuzzi

Kopecky - Williams - Kohn

No Derian Hatcher?  That was one of the first names I thought of.  I remember how excited I was when we got him and then the injury happened.
