Pavel Datsyuk smells. Joe Thornton has many leather bound books. Go Sharks.

I feel more sorry for people who are continually trying to spread their own misery onto others here.

Maybe not everyone lives and dies by the result of what ultimately is a kids game. Maybe families and friends still use sporting events as a bonding experience in a building that is considered hollowed ground by most fans. Maybe people will continue to support a team despite what others view as a 'futile event' and make it a supportive send off for a team/organization that's shown Detroit 20 years of outstanding hockey. Maybe there are still some classy fans out there.


What do you expect from someone with a username Grim...?

The Red Wings have a 1.8% chance of winning the series vs the Sharks. This is what Lloyd Christmas has to say about that.

Wings take next two on home ice. Sharks s*** their pants, lose next on home ice, then get eliminated back at the Joe. Wings in 6.

Did he like winning the Lady Byng in a game that esteems rugged play? "Sure," he says. "I like ladies." Asked about his first thought when he has to rush back on defense, he says, "Must get back before Holmstrom, so he's the slow one and not me."

Haha Pavel is simply the best.

Quick has the ability to stand on his head like that every now and then but he has trouble putting games back to back like that. The Kings can't expect to win the next game if they give up another 50+ shots like they did tonight. I'd like to see this go 7 games as well but the Kings will have to play better for sure. Niemi looks suspect though.

#2149858 A call to fans

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 15 April 2011 - 06:43 PM

the problem w/ that is the fact that some s*** will REALLY go down if hundreds of octopi hit the ice tomorrow (or the next game, or the game after that, etc). It will cause a lot of disruptions and it wont be good.

Just keep doing a few per game like happens now. If you go overboard, then the ramifications will only be greater.

But one time where 30 or whatever fly over the boards would be epic. It would be a huge FU to the league and Bettman and if it got me kicked out then whatever. I love this team enough that in 10 years if the tradition still exists because of something like that, then who cares? Just once would be a good protest and then the rest of the time only throw 2 or 3 like usual. Besides, it's their fault! Leave our traditions alone and you won't get a boat load of cephalopod in your face.

#2149693 Throwing an octopus at the Joe no longer allowed

Just curious, this has probably been discussed somewhere in the 7 pages of this thread but aren't we a democracy? Don't laws like this have to be voted on by the people to get passed? Who other than opposing teams or Bettman really have a problem with this? I understand the civil fines and jail time when this happens in opposing arenas but at the Joe, how could the majority of people have any problem with it at all? Maybe I am just confused on how laws come to be and get enforced.

Regardless... as I said in my first post a few pages back, This isn't going to stop 60 years of tradition. Guarnsheed.
