#2396949 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Posted by Uniblab on 05 May 2013 - 05:52 PM

And people wonder why I've stopped watching NHL games.

After 48 years of fandom, I couldn't take it anymore.

I can remember when this was a game played by men.

Now it's soccer on ice.

I'll love the Wings forever, but the NHL (No Hit League) has destroyed the game.

#2382331 Larry Murphy Fired by FSD

I think it's way past time to start complaining to the top brass at FSD.  Tell them whoever fired Murph is an idiot, and we're really angry about it, and want this idiot's head on a platter.

#2336328 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

Thank goodness for the Sony Playstation Network! It helped restore a bit of my sanity during this lockout.
I just downloaded and watched the December 2, 1995 Detroit-Montreal game, where we chased Roy outta the net and outta Montreal in a 12-1 blowout. :yahoo:

#2331834 Zetterberg`s Royal Swedish Balls -coming soon-

Posted by Uniblab on 16 October 2012 - 08:16 PM

Picked up some "Zetterballs" at Just Baked in Livonia over the weekend.
They're good!

....but I improved them.

Sandwich one between 2 graham crackers. It tastes like a combination of s'mores and those Samoas cookies you get from the Girl Scouts. Yum!

#2329782 Jimmy D Speaks out on Lockout, fined $250k

So we're all cattle, are we? Fine.
As for the players, may I suggest that the first time they skate out onto the Joe ice for practice, they all "moo".
Likewise for those fans returning to the Joe, from entering the gate, milling around the foyer until seated, "moo".
Heck, the walkway from the parking lot to the Joe is a cattle chute, anyway. We've gotten stuck in traffic a few times only for someone to start the moo-ing.

#2184395 As the (Max) Domi Turns

Posted by Uniblab on 10 June 2011 - 03:46 PM

From Canoe.ca

"LONDON, ONT. - Mark Hunter is no doubt happy he's had the opportunity to sit on his tractor the last week or so, having little to worry about except getting those soybeans in the ground.

He doesn't have to deal with the swirl surrounding Max Domi.

For those who haven’t followed As the Domi Turns, the first episode had young Max telling Ontario Hockey League teams that he was not going to play in the league but rather worry about his education and eventually play at an American college.

Of course, as with most soap operas there are always subplots. In this one young Domi really wants to play in the OHL but only in certain cities.

The plan goes awry when Kingston general manager Doug Gilmour steps in to foil the plan. He drafts young Domi and the plot thickens.

Domi won’t go.

Enter the London Knights or White Knight as they like to be known. Suspicion remains that London was young Domi’s initial destination. Not surprisingly, the Knights would love to help Domi out of this distressful situation.

And what would a good soap opera be without a complicated family situation. Tie Domi is a former NHL player. He and Max’s mother are divorced. Mom would like son to go to university.

Because of OHL rules, nothing can be done until almost September.

Hunter is hoping what he plants now, he’ll harvest in September and it isn’t soybeans.

Tie Domi made a visit to London last week. Hunter confirmed the visit.

Domi flew in by helicopter, talked with Hunter and left via the same transport method.

“No comment,” Hunter said.

Not about the conversation, Hunter admitted to chatting with the former tough guy. The no comment was about whether Domi flew in by whirlybird or not.

“I had conversations with Gilmour and Domi,” Hunter said. “A lot of people are talking to them.”

Whether a deal is done and just waiting for September to roll around earned yet another “no comment.”

That will be the final episode of As the Domi Turns."


Sounds like a bitter custody battle. Mom's pulling one arm in the college direction, dad Tie is pulling the other arm in the London Knights direction.

Poor kid. I wonder if any has bothered to ask him what HE wants.

Ozzie has what it takes to be a good color commentator in his post-retirement years.
Keen insight, knows the game inside-out, good sense of humour and a good voice.
