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

#2589985 Joe Louis Arena Game Entertainment

Posted by Ram on 07 April 2015 - 10:49 AM

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

#2585237 Mikael Samuelsson announces retirement

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.

#2574934 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

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.

First place is ours, let's hang onto it. If Wings can win tonight and Saturday, I will be thoroughly impressed/ecstatic. Let's go boys!!

#2565813 GDT : NHL Skills Competition/60th All-Star Game

Awesome. Thanks for posting. Even though no Wings, I love watching at least the skills comp.

#2564185 1/17 GDT : Predators 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Ram on 18 January 2015 - 09:51 AM

Games like last night's give me good feelings about this team moving forward if they can stay healthy. Mrazek will be key as this grueling schedule continues. Let's keep the points coming boys! LGW

#2561736 Mike Yeo (Wild) Has Meltdown At Practice

Posted by Ram on 08 January 2015 - 09:09 AM

I find this to be extremely tame and the category of "meltdown" is definitely undeserved and an exaggeration by media.

#2561301 1/6 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Edmonton Oilers 2

Quincy goal was great. Wings should have won and did. No complaints really. Just win baby.
