#2522316 Jeff Blashill close to signing an extension... Babcock talks starting

Posted by T.Low on 01 June 2014 - 01:42 PM

Babcock will go two more years in Detroit, then he will replace Red Berensen at Michigan, and Blashill will take over the Wings.

#2521668 Seattle looking to join NHL?

Posted by T.Low on 24 May 2014 - 09:44 PM

Exactly an expansion "draft" is bad for every team involved and doesn't do the new ones any favors they are basically getting leftovers and players who don't want to be there in the first place.
Seattle may be a big market but are they a big hockey market where the owners are willing to invest into an NHL club WITHOUT the NBA being #1 priority ? Also I'm starting to question the BOG more and more, guys like Dolan, Mr. I, Pegula should be part of it.
I mean first the sellout to a piss poor quality product = sportsnet for 12 years and now favoring Seattle over Quebec ? Something doesn't add up
Also Seattle is very close to Vancouver I guess most NHL fans there are already fans of the Canucks.

It can take 3 hrs to get from Seattle to Rogers Place in Vancouver. Most Seattle sports fans know that Todd Bertuzzi did a bad thing to that one guy and now he's not allowed back in the country, and they'd be really hard pressed to name another Canuck.

Probably as many Red Wing, Boston, and now Chicago fans as Canucklehead fans.

Seattle is a bandwagon market. Right now, the Seahawks and Sounders soccer are hot, but Husky football and Mariners baseball season tickets are easy to get great seats.

Sounders fans march across the city to the games, singing together, with other fans coming out of the pubs to job with them, just like in Europe. They meet with the team owner, comedian Drew Cary, at big outside gatherings in the city, and they tell him how they as fans want to participate in the whole scheme of Sounders Soccer and he actually responds quite favorably. They usually sellout the lower bowl, like 47,000 seats or something. That's what Bettman ought to be studying in Seattle.

Check it out.

#2520043 WCSF : (7) Minnesota vs. (5) Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by T.Low on 11 May 2014 - 08:06 PM

I see this guy wearing a Blackhawks Stanley Cup Champions hat at the airport so I ask him if they'll get by the Kings and he says, "We just did!".

So, I politely say, "No, I said Los Angeles, the Kings."

"Yeah, we beat em and now we're beating Minnesota".

" No, you beat the St Louis Blues. The beer on the bandwagon so good that the hockey's not so relevant, eh?"

He didn't get that either.

True story.

Way to go Toots.

I'll bet a day doesn't go by without him thinking about his brother.

#2514736 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

I don't care what happens... Just win this damn game. So glad Z is in :)
Where the heck is Ericsson

Drs are still fishing around inside his finger for the rest of the 100 bone fragments it shattered into. Need all the parts before you can rebuild it.

If we hear a TOD-BER-TUZZI chant tonight, then it was the right decision.

He's got to be thinking this could indeed be his last game ever. He'll bring it.

One the own hand, good to know he actually went after Bouwmeester. On the other hand, YEEOW that was a close one!

#2508508 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by T.Low on 10 April 2014 - 06:25 PM

Yeah, after reading all the hateful comments about our 23 years of awesomeness!!!!!! from all the butthurt Leafs fan on tsn and Facebook, I'm going to have to reform my opinion of their miserable fanbase a bit and say that I hope they continue to suck for all eternity.

Damn, dude, well said!

Damn; Shanaban had such a nice ring to it. You can't replace that.

#2507762 What is everyones second favorite team?

Posted by T.Low on 09 April 2014 - 06:46 PM

I really only follow Detroit and GR, but I must say the Canucks have been a fun team to watch lately,...implode off ice, that is.

#2507649 Apparently it can get worse in Vancouver.

Posted by T.Low on 09 April 2014 - 12:40 PM

From CBC:

Why the urgency to fill this position ASAP? A fear of more rioting?
​Their ownership is a train wreck.

I would think they want to get a decision maker (Linden) in position ASAP to be ready for the first wave of available GMs. If they would have fired Gillis back when it was apparent he was in over his head, they could have had a shot at Nill.

#2507484 The Niklas Kronwall Appreciation Thread

Posted by T.Low on 08 April 2014 - 08:47 PM

Appreciation thread?

Did you appreciate the two lazy missed poke checks on that goal when he should have just stood him up and been done with it?

Jay Leno as GM, Letterman as president, and Conan can wait in the weeds for Leno to retire.

I'm going with Craig Ferguson replacing lettermen on the late show. Mark my words

#2506112 4/5 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs Red Wings 3

Posted by T.Low on 05 April 2014 - 02:16 AM

Hmm. I guess I'll see just how big of a Wings fan my wife really is.

It's our 5th anniversary, and our first time away from the kids together (our kids, not Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, and Nyquist!) and we'll be staying at one of Vancouver's top luxury hotels

I wonder if I'll be able to see the tv from the tub?
