#2232469 Fistric destroys Niederreiter

feet were clearly planted at contact

Thanks for the pic. I thought that it might have been a "Kronwall" situation where his feet leave the ice after contact, but I wasn't sure. It's hard to tell sometimes watching these videos on youtube.

He did leave his feet, though that part didn't really look intentional. Other than that I don't have too much of a problem with this hit.

And here I thought that all those Hot-N-Ready pizzas I was buying were helping support the Wings.

#2073303 Wings third jersey idea

Posted by roboturner on 04 December 2010 - 10:41 PM

I don't really get the "traditionalist" argument. Nobody is we make permanent changes to our regular jerseys.

I think it would be cool if they wore the winter classic jersey a few times a year. Maybe during Sunday home games, kind of like what the Lakers do with their white jerseys. I just checked the wings schedule and they play 6 Sunday home games, which I think would be a good amount to wear a third jersey.

This Pistons game can end anytime. Basketball is so lame.

#2050010 10/21 GDT: Flames 2 at Red Wings 4

I'm pretty excited. The second game I ever went to was Wings vs. Flames and it was the most intense game I've attended. Two over times and then a long shootout. It was crazy! Also one of the best fights I could ever watch. One of the Flames (can't remember which at the moment) got pushed into the board so hard that it cracked the glass and everything. What more could a girl ask for? Even though the Wings lost in the shootout, it was still the best game I've watched live. I am excited to see the Flames go up against the Wings again, even if most games aren't like that.

you mean one overtime and then a shootout?

#2047889 Thrashers' Diversity

Posted by roboturner on 16 October 2010 - 01:38 PM

On our current roster the Wings have...
7 players from Canada
6 players from United States
6 players from Sweden
2 players from Russia
2 players from Czech Republic
1 player from Finland

I would say we have quite a bit of diversity too

OK, so this is a little off topic, but spouse told me that the Texas Rangers' baseball team celebrated their win, but chose to drink ginger ale (No, not Mickey's kind. :) ) instead of champagne because Josh Hamilton had said he couldn't be in the clubhouse for it because of his (recovering) alcoholism. Is that cool, OR WHAT?!

Does anybody else find it ridiculous that baseball teams celebrate like that every time they advance a round, or even just make the playoffs?

Ericsson just flat out sucks. He honestly looks like those kids in pee wee hockey that are afraid to have to puck on their stick so as soon as they get it they just do something stupid.

#2036675 Tonights line-up against Chicago

Posted by roboturner on 25 September 2010 - 01:30 PM

I'm honestly a bit disappointed that Ritola isn't in the line-up. I've been patiently waiting to see him, but whenever the game is televised, he's not playing. I listened to the game on the radio against the Pens the other night and it sounded like he was one of the best forwards for the Wings.

Downey has no business in the line up. No idea why they are wasting valuable preseason games on him. Let the future play, not the past.

Hope Babcock changes the lines to this:

Drew Miller-Abdelkader-Pare

The entire roster for the regular season is pretty much set with the exception of a four guys battling for two fourth line spots, and you're bitching about Downey playing on the fourth line in a preseason game? :blink:
