Has anyone seen the Season Ticket Holder "stub" for this game, and does it look like the Yzerman one that was very big, that almost looked like the banner?

 I was hoping it would have been like the Yzerman ticket, but it's the same size as all of the other tickets. At least the one I have, which I got from a season ticket holder.

Heard the rumor lidstrom slipped on the ice cant make it to the colorado game.

If that's the case just have Homer be a stand in. I'm sure he'd have the crowd rolling with his Swenglish.

Yeah, well, I'll be at the Wings/Leafs game with 110,000 rabid hockey fans making history.  This also follows the day that I'll spend watching Yzerman, Lidstrom, and Federov play at Comerica Park.

Most rabid fans I know spell it Fedorov. Sorry, couldn't help myself :bye: . Other than losing the golf courses, which are alot of spaces, I'm sure that the residents will be parking on their lawns, just like football Saturdays. Just have to get their early, and probably pay the same or a bit more than for football. $10(with a walk) up to $50(across from the stadium) for football.

In Topic: What former Red Wing would u want to meet?

Stevie Y.  I've already met my other favorite, Mickey Redmond.  He's the best!  :wub:

Agreed. I've met Mick a couple of times, one at a card signing in Livonia, and up in the broadcast booth at Boston Garden back in '94. Great guy. A buddy of mine is friends with Paul Woods, and he and a few of my other close friends went to the Old Shillelagh after a Wings game in the early 90s with Mick and Paul and closed the place, drinking and singing Irish songs. I sure wish I had been there! I've been fortunate to meet many former Wings, mainly at autograph signings, but the last couple of seasons at Olympia, I would go up to the broadcast area in between periods, and wait to get Sid and Bruce to come out and get their autographs. Always real nice. Meeting Steve would be great, but really any player would be a pleasure. I'd love to meet Reed Larson, just to talk about the last years of Olympia, the 77-78 team that got the city back into hockey, or his experience playing in the 1980 All-Star game at the Joe.
