#2336214 Have Your Voice Be Heard on the NHL Lockout

Posted by mmorland on 17 December 2012 - 11:51 AM

The LetsGoWings.com / LetsGoWingsRadio.com podcast, The Red Line, is looking to push out a new episode sometime this week.

With the NHL lockout 90+ days deep, we want to give the fans a voice and an outlet to be heard during this episode. We hope it goes beyond the Wings fan base, but at minimum, we want to give the fans a voice.

There's three ways to be heard:

1.) Leave a comment on this post and we'll read it during the podcast
2.) Send an e-mail to topics@letsgowingsradio.com and we'll read on the show
3.) Call (313) 638-5000 and leave a voicemail and we'll work the audio into the podcast

Please include: Name (first only), City/State (country if outside North America) and your thoughts/feelings on the NHL lockout

Please, no profanity since we want to represent the Red Wings fan base in a positive light. All submissions need to be made by 5pm on Thursday, December 20.

As always, The Red Line can be heard at: LetsGoWingsRadio Podcast

#2331255 Report: NHL may cancel Winter Classic by November if no CBA deal

Posted by mmorland on 10 October 2012 - 10:57 PM

I really don't see this happening in November for two key reasons.

First, the Winter Classic is one of the few things Bettman has done right; it is his baby and takes great pride in it. This is huge exposure AND money for the league. I'm not surprised the Red Wings are one of the teams pushing for an end to the lockout; they'll be hurt the most (financially) with no Winter Classic. November is too early to pull the plug.

Second, and this is pure speculation; nothing would make Bettman tingle in all the right places more than working out a deal in early December so he is able to kick off the season with the Winter Classic. I can't be the only one who is picturing gary on the mic in front of 113,000 people saying "we wanted to bring back hockey to the world's greatest fans in one of the greatest money making hockey markets city's in the world."

#2314556 Opinions if Wings have to settle for 'Plan B': Semin and Carle

Posted by mmorland on 04 July 2012 - 11:50 AM

i know were in the sh*t! but dont go crazy and throw away 5 million for 5-6 years on a carle i would rather save the money for shea weber next season !

i would suggest maybe even giving up the 4 1st round picks and like going crazy and throwing a 110 million 12 yr deal to weber and high signing bonus but why risk it that nashville matches and we lose the chance at him next year possibly

point is i hope we dont go crazy and overpay carle as tough as our situation is

maybe take a chance on overpayed boumweester?? at least its only 2 years and he does play 20-25 minutes a game

That makes no sense. Why pay MORE for your number 2 choice, when you didn't even offer your number 1 choice that much money? I'd rather spend that money on short term deals on Doan, Semin, Carle, etc. Lets not jump off the cliff here...

#2300380 The Red Line / LetsGoWingsMedia Update

Posted by mmorland on 09 May 2012 - 01:16 PM

With the Red Wings season over, The Red Line podcast will only produce episodes as needed. Expect one during the Stanley Cup finals, another when free-agency begins, etc. Lets hope there won't be a podcast about an NHL lockout. LetsGoWings staff would like to thank everyone behind the scenes and all of the website fans for making season one of The Red Line so successful. Finally, the show is in the process of developing some partnerships which may lead to some live show broadcasts, giveaways and more. Until next time, Go Wings!

#2292241 How do we fix this?

Posted by mmorland on 18 April 2012 - 01:36 PM

First off, lets be realistic. Cleary is hurt and will be improved next season. The team isn't going to trade him. 2nd, Fillpula isn't going to get traded, this organization over values his talent.

#2264013 2012 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - February 27th, 3:00 PM ET

Posted by mmorland on 27 February 2012 - 03:16 PM

Today was a let down for many reasons, but I believe going into the post season with the same group of forwards will result in the same playoff outcome, bounced out somewhere between the 2nd/3rd round.

Does anyone have a TradeCentre stream?

I'm listening to TSN Toronto: http://www.tsn.ca/toronto/listen/

I am really hoping the Wings pick up a forward. Holland said he's looking for one. Lets hope he can get one for the right price.
