Let's go Wings! Seems as though this game is being played as a final practice/rest up before the playoffs. Not a bad idea, IMO.


Hockeytown and all other GDTers...thanks so much for another great regular season's worth of graphics, lineup updates, etc.

I am very happy and relieved and proud of DRW for making the playoffs for 24 straight seasons. It's an amazing accomplishment.

I also can do without the extreme negativity, never fun.

But I disagree with a sentiment of, "Hey let's be happy we're in, this team is still great!" Yes they are, but they have faltered after looking extremely promising at several points during this season. Further, expectations are reasonably high for this franchise. I believe it is understandable to be disappointed with this team. We invest so much as fans and sure, these runs to the playoffs are great, but it is not baseless to be somewhat disappointed.

All being said, love this team til I die and here's to an improbable playoff run. Cheers!

Relieved. We have that going for us, which is nice.

Still envisioning a first round exit with the potential matchups, but hey, that's why they play the games.

Well that is a bummer. Hope he is okay long term.

Things that should stay:

Matter of Trust Billy Joel after 4 goals scored.

Piano Man Bilyl Joel "9 o'clock on a Saturday" on Saturday night games.

Goal horn.


Things that can go:

Muse Uprising after the other team scores.

Don't Stop Believin' Journey (song needs to die, further..South Detroit is Windsor, Ontario)


Things that shouldn't happen:

Individual goal song


All being said, I'll miss the Joe when it goes. I envsion they will have some sort of rebranding with the new arena, but keep some things the same.

Warrior.  I hereby award Drew Miller the Niklas Lidstrom Iron Man trophy for sheer guts and amazing heart.  Betcha he's out there tomorrow night vs. Boston.



Chicks dig scars...and that Just for Men look.

#2587780 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by Ram on 01 April 2015 - 08:09 AM

My thoughts are, the goalie situation is likely to not be solved by the postseason if the Wings make it. Not the same whatsoever, but in a similar fashion to 2008 when Osgood was switched for Hasek, if Pete/Jim look like crap early in a playoff series, then Jim/Pete will come in. The way things are going I just don't see them figuring it out completely by season's end.


That all being said, I am glad Mraz is starting Thursday because he looked real solid for the majority of the game.

Ouch. Get well soon Drew. (insert "He's a hockey player; I'm surprised he didn't finish the game." line here).

#2587074 3/31 GDT : Senators 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by Ram on 31 March 2015 - 02:09 PM

Let's go Wings! Wings show same effort as the great GDT and come out with the victory!


Ya it is pretty weird. Maybe Babcock sees it like Ericsson at least has a track record of decent success here (last season and the 09 playoffs and stuff). Weiss has had maybe a handful of good games here in almost 2 years. He hasn't done much for us at all. 


Is Weiss even in the lineup tonight? The GDT doesn't really mention it

No, he's not. Per Khan:

Justin Abdelkader-Henrik Zetterberg-Gustav Nyquist

Darren Helm-Pavel Datsyuk-Tomas Tatar

Teemu Pulkkinen-Riley Sheahan-Tomas Jurco

Drew Miller-Luke Glendening-Joakim Andersson

Stephen Weiss and Daniel Cleary (healthy scratches)

On defense:

Niklas Kronwall-Jonathan Ericsson

Danny DeKeyser-Kyle Quincey

Brendan Smith-Marek Zidlicky

Jakub Kindl (healthy scratch)

Petr Mrazek (starting)

Jimmy Howard

Arguably most exciting game I ever attended at the Joe was Game 1 of the 2008 Cup Finals. Will never forget it. Thanks Sammy and congratulations on a solid career.

Great GDT (again. Big surprise I know). Need this one boys. Put some pucks in the net. LGW!

#2574419 Quincey... Surgery coming?

Posted by Ram on 24 February 2015 - 04:07 PM

This would be a real bummer. Quincey has had quite the bounce back year and has looked real solid for our defense, in my opinion. I called for his head almost every game last season. Hope that if he's due for surgery it is quick. Godspeed.

#2570449 DD starting to get the love....

Posted by Ram on 13 February 2015 - 09:36 PM

I don't know, Quincey has been pretty good this year and D seems like he's in a bit of a sophmore slump.  

The defense as a unit has been surprisingly reliable this season. Kronners I think has declined but still gets the job done, Quincey has indeed bounced back, as horrible as that tastes coming out of my mouth. XO I hope stays up for good. Smith and Biggie have their blunders but their respective roles are filled well, IMO.


Danny is need of polishing but the future is bright with him, XO, and Marchenko.
