Give everyone 1 hour of that day where everything goes. No suspensions, flame wars galore, nudity, etc. It'd be called the "vent' thread.
Bring back all the posters I like who were banned (the list is too long to name). But it'd be like going into Dante's hell to rescue souls punished for eternity.
Make the water cooler a part of the GDT. (I haven't see a forum where the water cooler was used so infrequently). I mean, do people here not care about anything besides hockey? I know most people will never read this thread even if he stays here on the front page for a year.
Give all the posters who don't have avatars, avatars. Everyone should have an avatar, or one will be assigned to you.
Bring back the political forum (this is for you hillbillywingsfan).
I wouldn't remember Fedorov any differently if he signed with the Wings for one day and then retired. Didn't he play in the Winter Classic last year in a Wings jersey also?
Now if he had come back to Detroit for a final season, that would have been a different story and maybe would have brought closure and a new chapter. But one game just for the fans (or in this case, not even a game), it just doesn't make sense.
To me, Alfie retired as a Wing, but everyone will remember him as a Senator. Regardless of this whole story.
Very classy move by the Sens. Does anyone else feel the same I do? Wake up Mr. Illitch and Ken Holland! Bring Fedorov home for a day so he can officially retire a Red Wing! Prove to the everyone that you are the Class of the NHL! Fedorov is the BEST Russian to ever grace the NHL, he is easily top 3 Red Wings of all time. I don't want to hijack the thread, but I just think that the Wings should do the same for Fedorov.
Congrats Alfie on a great career, thank you for allowing us to have you for a year, but thank you for not taking up a roster spot from one of our kids, especially if you weren't 100%. Thank you for not being greedy!
(on a side note, along with Feds being brought HOME for a day, I would love to see the Wings "retire" Bob Probert and Shawn Burr from the NHL in a nice ceremony.)
I've never understood the idea of signing just for one day so you can retire with your old team. Does anyone even remember whether a particular athlete did this gesture or not?
