#2677648 Petition to change Lil Caesars Arena to Gordie Howe Arena

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 June 2016 - 12:26 PM

The Canadiens named their arena in honor of Jean Beliveau.  Wish Detroit would do the same but not gonna happen.

Bettman read the wrong name.  It was Kessel.

If we made a trade at the deadline, that could be us right now.

That's the suit Mario chooses to wear on this night?




#2677417 Gordie Howe has passed away. 1928-2016.

20 straight seasons finishing top five in scoring.  How ridiculous is that?  The longevity and good health required for that, together with playing at a high level.  




#2677334 Gordie Howe has passed away. 1928-2016.

He didn't look good the last time he was on TV, so I'm not surprised.  

 

It's amazing how many years he played in an era when that wasn't as common.  I don't see any athlete in any of the major sports (count counting sissy baseball) who could play until they're 52 and still play at a good level.  




#2677144 Biggest need for Red Wings in Off-season Poll

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 June 2016 - 12:52 PM

In the past, this poll would be easy.  Back then, we were good and were missing a piece or two.    

 

Now we need at least 4 of those categories.  Maybe all 5, but we likely don't need any defensive defensemen (though an upgrade over what we have would be nice).  But all the other categories we badly need to upgrade.  

 

I didn't vote because I can't decide what the biggest need is.  I'm leaning towards offensive defenseman, because your offense starts from the blue line.   




#2677111 Possible Leak of Florida Panthers New Logo

It's called negative space. and yes this is an amazing design so simple, yet perfect.

 

Negative space.  My new nickname for Ericsson.   :lol:

I'm willing to bet they are about to change that stat this year, despite my disliking. They have 2 shots at home ice and one away.

Annoyingly, they came to the show in the Finals. They are clicking and churning while the Sharks are not.

 

I shall retire from this debacle and skate some, with some luck It'll ease my mind.

 

On the bright side, there will be a new video of Crosby lifting the Cup.  Not just the one in JLA that I always turn away from.  


 

It's a shame, Tolliver was really on top of his game in that one too.

 

Luc Robitaille's breakaway buzzer beating goal at the end of regulation to force OT is something I'll never forget from that game.

Preferred the whale tail did you?

The person who designed this logo should be in the HHOF.  The blue whale tail on top of the "subtle" white H and the green W beneath.  In contrast, the person who designed the Hurricanes logo should be sent to the minors to design logos for beer league teams.

Pittsburgh has never won the Cup on home ice.  

 

Although they had a chance in the 1995 Finals before the game was interrupted by terrorist attacks in OT of game 7.

Nothing wrong with the original Panthers jersey.  No makeover needed.  

 

Please give Carolina a new jersey, color scheme and logo.  Same with Arizona and a few others.

I'd rank the 2002 Wings and the 2001 Avalanche over the 2008 Wings.  Probably have to rank the 2000 Devils above the 2008 Wings also.

Hoping the Sharks do to the Pens what the Pens did to us in 2009.  




#2676794 Dustin Brown losing captaincy

Would be funny if they named Jeff Carter captain.
