#2449034 NHL Goal Light

Posted by Adidarw on 30 October 2013 - 10:34 PM

This is something I've kind of always wondered. Does the goal light automatically light up when the puck goes in the net? If not, what technically makes it light up?


All I can find about the goal light on Google is sites that sell goal lights.


I'd prefer a link to a page that explains it, if anyone knows of one.

#2422722 Best 4th Overall Pick in NHL History: Steve Yzerman

Posted by Adidarw on 27 June 2013 - 12:06 PM


Drafting is one part skill and one part luck. And sometimes bad luck can turn out to be the best kind.

The Detroit Red Wings had the fourth pick at the 1983 NHL Draft and targeted local prospect Pat LaFontaine. But when LaFontaine was taken by the New York Islanders with the third pick, the Red Wings had to settle for their second choice.

That player was a talented but smallish center who worked out OK. Detroit might not have gotten the player it wanted, but by the timeSteve Yzerman retired 23 years later, the Red Wings wouldn't have changed a thing about how that day went.

NHL.com's Dream Draft panel has named Yzerman as the best No. 4 first-round pick.


#2379272 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Posted by Adidarw on 03 April 2013 - 11:30 AM

Are you aware that nobody is doing anything? There has been one trade thus far today, and it was Maxime Sauve for Rob Flick. Do you know whom either of those guys are? Yep, neither do I.


In light of this, I don't know why you're calling Holland's lack of movement crazy.


Some of us are excited that the trade deadline is less than 3 hours away.  Let us be excited and giddy.

This is no longer a rumor and there is discussion about Dekeyser signing with Detroit under General Discussion.

#2374918 Iginla Traded to Pittsburgh

Posted by Adidarw on 28 March 2013 - 05:29 AM

Is it possible to puke in you're mouth more than 3 times ? .... 

Yeah, wait until somebody interviews Crosby to see what he has to say.  That'll be the 4th time.

#2373492 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by Adidarw on 24 March 2013 - 10:22 PM

So, Detroit wasn't on the list.. but now Detroit has been added.  In my mind, this makes me think Detroit is pushing hard for him but Detroit wasn't on the list... but Calgary sees a deal they like... so they had a talk with Iginla, who in turn was like "ok... I can do that"

That's just what I'm thinking :)

Here I am.  Apparently I replied to this thread in the past, but I can't find where it was or which picture I uploaded before.

#2355390 Babcock: Is he the right guy going forward?

Posted by Adidarw on 14 February 2013 - 05:58 AM

The Wings had a rough start.  However, they have been inching their way to the top of the standings.  They have shown an immense amount of improvement.  Babcock is an excellent coach and there is no reason to believe we should find someone else to take his job.


Did we forget about all the injuries we have right now?  For how bad we started and how we IMPROVED so much to get where we're at in the standings now without several key players is motivating.


I don't find it shocking at all that this topic came after a loss.

I like how everybody here has different opinions on who the best players are.  Just like Wayne Gretzky has an opinion. :thumbsup:

Posted by Adidarw on 20 January 2013 - 01:47 PM

I think it's pretty sane and ok to be very upset about that first game.  That game pissed me off.


Being upset about the first game is not the same as saying "Oh my gosh, the whole season is going to be like this!"  That game yesterday was absolutely horrible.  It doesn't matter if it was the first game, last game, or anywhere in between.  The Wings simply did not show up.  We can use every excuse in the book, but at the end of the day they lost.  The Blues did not have any sort of special attention, they didn't have anything extra that the Wings didn't have, as far as knowledge or training.  The fact is the Blues beat us.  If you watched the game, they beat us bad.


The concern of mine is: Why didn't the Wings show up?  Why was it not the other way around (Wings shutting out the Blues)?  The Blues didn't bring any excuses for winning.  The Wings looked like a minor league team playing an NHL team.  It was very bad.  That is a perfectly just cause to be angry.


The game is behind us now, so we have to look forward.  I know the team is better than the way they played yesterday.  But I'm still upset that they came in and played that poorly for game one.  They could not get a steady possession together to make anything happen.  The defense failed us and the offense failed us.  It was overall just a bad team effort.  I'm no hockey expert, but it's tough for me to point at any position or player and say it's that person's fault.  The whole team sucked.  Although, in my opinion, I must say Jimmy Howard sucked the least, and I believe the reason they swapped goaltenders was just to save face for Howard and attempt to give the team a second wind.  Unfortunately, it didn't work.
