#2249282 Red Wings Pre-All Star Game MVP

Posted by Ram on 25 January 2012 - 01:25 PM

I think it's clearly Jimmy; he's been absolutely stellar and with goaltending always being a major concern for playoff teams, it feels way too good to finally have reliable goaltending.

Honorable mention though to Val - you have to love the way he has answered the bell and stepped up in this first half of the season.


#2248963 Props to the DJ at the Joe

Posted by Ram on 24 January 2012 - 12:06 PM

I do love the classic feel of the songs at the Joe. "I guess that's why they call it the Blues" last night was awesome. The timeless BJ Piano Man "It's 9 o'clock on a Saturday.." snippet played each time there is a game on Saturday is great. I throughly enjoy the fact that the Joe does not have a goal song, but instead "ABC" for 3 goals scored and beginning of "Matter of Trust" for 4 goals scored. I'm also not so sure of anywhere else that routinely plays "The Good Ol Hockey Game" and "I Wanna Drive the Zamboni."

That all being said, am I the only one who wants Don't Stop Believin' to die? Not just at the Joe, all Detroit sporting events. Its time is done. It was cool for a while. Not it's just awful. Where is South Detroit? That's right, Windsor. I used to like Don't Stop Believin' when I was growing up, and now its overplay and national promotion through Glee and other avenues has basically ruined it for me. Great song, just keep it away from my home team's sports stadiums. Even Rick Perry from Journey knows he blew it. My link

On an overall standpoint though, yes. Good job JLA Music Crew.

Those Blue Leafs jerseys and khaki pants would be awesome.

#2244592 UofM/NHL in Advanced Talks for Winter Classic

Posted by Ram on 12 January 2012 - 02:29 PM

It should be at Comerica because the major reason for having it at the Big House is for NHL profitability and recognition over the home team's city. Whereas the Winter Classic is a major stage for both the two teams and the NHL, in my opinion, holding the event at the Big House majorly downplays the Red Wings and the city of the Detroit and instead bolsters Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan, and the NHLL. While I would like the fact that my chances of attending would be much greater at the Big House with the 100,000 extra seats, and the fact that viewing the actual game is much better in a football field over a baseball field, think about it - Detroit, the city where the team resides, goes majorly overlooked. The other venue that the owner of the team has control over - goes entirely unused. If you look at past Winter Classics, every single venue used has a connection with the city and the team. EG, Buffalo Sabres play where the Buffalo Bills play. U of M doesn't directly have a connection with the Red Wings in the fact that they do not also house a major professional team of the area. While I think it would be great to have it at the Big House, I agree it should be at Comerica and it would be a departure from the NHL's current Winter Classic formula to have it at the Big House. Why should the city of Ann Arbor, where the majority of the population is college students, several from around the country, be rewarded with the Winter Classic instead of Detroit? I understand that Ann Arbor is really not that far away from Detroit, but to me, this is like holding the Super Bowl at the Big House over Ford Field because it is a grander stage. It just doesn't make sense to me.


#2226366 11/17 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Sharks 5

Posted by Ram on 17 November 2011 - 09:07 AM

Late night game (and hopeful win over the annoying Sharks) is for sure the relief I need to forget about a pretty awful week.

Wings win 21 - 0, Pavel gets seven hat-tricks. :siren:

Let's go Wings!


#2224997 11/12 GDT: Stars 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Ram on 12 November 2011 - 09:57 PM

I'm content with the fact that our third defencive pair isn't perfect.

Stars were leading the league in points per game and Wings won them 5-2. Complaining about anything would just make me feel stupid.

I agree. I just think Ericsson's multiple blunders may catch up and that White would be a tough loss cuz I think he's been lights out for the Wings.


#2224991 11/12 GDT: Stars 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Ram on 12 November 2011 - 09:47 PM

My thoughts:
1. Hope White is not out for too long after that puck to the face (see point #2 & 3)
2. Ericsson blows
3. I really don't like Big E
4. Let's hope Jakub doesn't throw down again
5. Great to see four straight after that slump. And the Stars are a legit squad.

Cheers. Congrats to HOFers coming up, especially Mick.

Happy Saturday.

Edit: PS. If they are trying to adopt whatever song that is as a goal song at the Joe, please don't. Please.


#2223693 11/8 GDT: Avalanche 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Ram on 08 November 2011 - 02:10 PM

Looks like Kindl is back in for Commodore after all. Lineup for tonight looks like:

Clears - Dats - Homer
Flip - Z - Mule
Abby - Helmer - Happy
Mills - Emmerton - Fabian

Nick - White Christmas
Kronners - Stuey
Big E - Amazon Kindle

Edit: Link

Interested in fourth line tonight, but unhappy of still no Flip-Pav.

Let's go Wings!


#2223655 11/8 GDT: Avalanche 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Ram on 08 November 2011 - 10:26 AM

Let's go boys, get it done tonight. Wings still overdue for some goals from the slump, I'm going with 7-1, DRW over Avs. Check it!


#2223015 Vladdy artwork exhibition in Royal Oak

Posted by Ram on 05 November 2011 - 05:08 PM

Thank you for posting. Probably won't be able to buy anything, but it's very nice to see his involvement still with the community and raising for a good cause.

We'll always remember Vladdy!

Classic. I love Pav and hope he never leaves.


#2208594 9/21 Exhibition GDT: Red Wings 2 at Penguins 3

Posted by Ram on 21 September 2011 - 07:09 PM

This is not helping my LSAT score go up any :P

Cleary giving the people in the front row a nice wind

This isn't helping my 1L reading of Torts and Contracts either! :hehe:

I am down to party with Tartar for a few games. I think he molds well with the squad.

Also addressing who plays in these games, I think that everyone who's trying to crack the lineup gets equal playing? And our stars just rotate the top line?

Edit: Get the new guys a feel for the style too?


#2174940 2012 Winter Classic, Jan 2.

Posted by Ram on 13 May 2011 - 10:03 AM

I really would argue for Montreal or Toronto getting it, but it seems that they'll just have a separate one every year ("Heritage Classic") as no one in the US is going to watch a Canadian team and they will make tons of money off of it in Canada anyways.

I also initially don't really like the same teams getting it year after year. I don't know, seems like it could be one of those things like the Thanksgiving Day games in the NFL. I can't really make up my mind actually. Kind of really do find it lame that twice there's been teams that have already played.


#2147777 Babcock's mancrush on Salei

Posted by Ram on 13 April 2011 - 04:00 PM

I think Salei is more solid of a defenseman and has the experience needed for the Wings this time of year. But that's just me.
