In Topic: New Ultra-Enhanced Video/Renderings of the Arena District

Yesterday, 10:17 PM

Ok. I have a question for you then. Would you rather keep the old building around and have big advertising on the front of the Jersey like European soccer. Or would you rather have no Jersey advertising and a corporate name on a new arena?

That is one hell of a false dichotomy...



Anyway, I wish they could keep it. They could use it for other hockey games (i.e. college, high school, pee-wee, ect).

They could turn it into a sort of Red Wings museum with memorabilia and you could go look in the locker room and see where Yzerman, Feds, Pavel, ect sat and got ready for games.


I would love to be able to go to Olympia today and see where all the great Wings of old played and a bunch of old wooden sticks with no curve on them, old Wings jerseys with the smaller logo on the front. That would be awesome.


I know most of you are Lions fans, but being in the UP I'm a Packers fan. And one of the greatest things about going to a home Packers game is getting to be at the legendary Lambeau Field; the same field where players like Reggie White and Ray Nitschke played, Bart Starr won the Ice Bowl on the quarterback sneak, where Brett Favre and now Aaron Rodgers have become some of the best quarterbacks to have played the game. And that field will be there for future generations of players and fans to come and enjoy the history that it offers.

Even the Old City Stadium that they played at before moving to Lambeau is still in use. It's just cool that these places still exist and get used.

In Topic: Sean Avery - Transition Season

When I read the title of this thread I thought it was going to be a different kind of, ahem.....transition. He was doing all that fashion stuff for a while (not that I have a problem with either of those things, I don't) it's just what popped in my head

So when is the parade?

In Topic: Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

16 June 2015 - 12:47 AM

If Cleary is re-signed he will not cost anyone a roster spot. He will be assigned to the minors and collect his promised pay cheque there and be glorified mentor for the young guys.

It's really a non-issue since we shouldn't even be that close to the cap.

Nobody would have an issue if this happened.


But two years ago we all knew there was no way Cleary was coming back because he was clearly deteriorating.

          -He ended up with the Wings


Then last year we all knew there was absolutely no way he would be back after a god awful season the year before when he shouldn't have been brought back the first time.

         -But he STILL ended with the Wings.


Now for the 3rd year we all know there is absolutely no doubt about the fact the he should be gone once and for all.

         -I'm not holding out any hope for the 'right' decision to be made

In Topic: 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Chicago winning the Cup again is the greatest argument against a benevolent, omnipotent, intelligent god.  

Well, its official now...I can do a quick William Lane Craig impression.


Premise 1: An omnipotent, benevolent god would not let the Blackhawks win 3 Cups in 6 years.

Premise 2: The Blackhawks won 3 Cups in 6 years:

Premise 3: An omnipotent, benevolent god does not exist.
