#2614025 TSN Play of the Year

Posted by drumnj on 11 June 2015 - 03:15 PM

As long as Red Wings social media puts the word out the final round should be a win for Nyquist.  Red Wings nation is a behemouth that is nearly unstopable.

#2547699 Red Wings Central Closing Down (completely) Nov. 7th

Posted by drumnj on 06 November 2014 - 07:05 PM

Back in September Matt (different Matt) said he was no longer doing articles and write-ups on prospects on Red Wings Central.  At the time he said that the forums would stay up, but a week ago he posted that they were being closed as well.  I didn't see anything posted here about it, HFboards had a farewell thread at the time.  I do have to say it was one of the better assesment sites for Wings prospects, especially the rankings.


Some of you may be familiar with the forums there, as it was pretty laid back...well since there was little to no moderation (so quite the opposite as here).  I would assume he's going to dedicate all his time to CapGeek (if you didn't know a Wings fan runs it) and everything will be pretty much frozen in time.  Just thought a post here wouldn't hurt as we are losing an exclusively Red Wings blog/news/forum site.

plus the guy at monkeywrench does all Michigan area teams, like the Griffins.

#2538332 10/4 Final Preseason GDT: Detroit Red Wings vs Boston Bruins

Posted by drumnj on 04 October 2014 - 04:55 PM

My goal for the Wings today is for them not to suck as hard as yesterday.

and no injuries






.........except maybe 1 (maybe 2) specific player(s)

#2537626 9/29 Exhibition GDT : Maple Leafs 0 at Red Wings 3

Posted by drumnj on 29 September 2014 - 05:58 PM

Hey folks...I'm still around for those wondering.


Season preview that FSD made a couple weeks ago will start in 5 minutes.  I should have that along with the Rookie Camp Wingspan recorded and on youtube at some point.  I'm hoping to be more productive with pre and post game recordings this season as I started last season, but ran into some issues.

#2531777 Rule Changes in the AHL (what the NHL has considered)

Posted by drumnj on 12 July 2014 - 09:17 AM

Yesterday the American Hockey League annoced a few new rule changes.  I know the overtime and fighting (Yzerman suggested it last year) ones have been considered by the NHL as well.  This may be a test run in the AHL and could be something we'll see in the NHL for the future.


Rule 85 (“Overtime”)

  • During the regular season, the sudden-death overtime period will be seven minutes (7:00) in length, preceded by a “dry scrape” of the entire ice surface.
  • Teams will change ends at the start of overtime.
  • Full playing strength will be 4-on-4 until the first whistle following three minutes of play (4:00 remaining), at which time full strength will be reduced to 3-on-3 for the duration of the overtime period.
  • If the game is still tied following overtime, a winner will be determined by a three-player shootout.

Rule 20.4 (“Major Penalties”)

  • An automatic game misconduct will be applied to any player who has been assessed two major penalties for fighting or three major penalties for any infraction in the same game.

Rule 9.6 (“Helmets”)

  • A player on the ice whose helmet comes off during play will be assessed a minor penalty unless he immediately (a) exits the playing surface or (b) puts the helmet back on with the chin strap properly fastened.



#2524782 Wings officially have vacancy in asst coach spot

Posted by drumnj on 20 June 2014 - 08:06 AM







But in all seriousness, he was a very good defenceman and although goofy I could see him commanding some respect as a coach.

#2523004 Tatar vs Nyquist

Posted by drumnj on 06 June 2014 - 11:21 AM

Looks like the Slovakian's really want Tatar to win.

#2520251 New Michigan Sports TV Channel, Signed Deal w/Griffins

Posted by drumnj on 13 May 2014 - 04:49 PM

So some pretty substantial news in the Michigan sporting world.  Michigan Entertainment Sports is going to be launched this fall on various cable providers in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.  They have signed a 3 year deal with the Grand Rapids Griffins and plan to pickup games from smaller college schools, not in the Big Ten, minor and junior level teams along with High School sports across the state.

Should be interesting to see what will become of this station, but good news for Wings and Griffins fans.  They are literally brand new, as they don't have anything on their site, http://mes-tv.com/

However they have another blog like site, here http://mymes.us/

Here is a quick bio of them on LinkedIn:  http://www.linkedin....tainment-sports

Lots of talk throughout this thread of the needed right handed shooter who can rip it from the circle.

If only the Wings had someone who can blast it like this:

Posted by drumnj on 22 April 2014 - 06:44 PM

man why do we always gotta get stuck with Emrick?


almost ruins the experience

Right, it's a good thing they let teams still have their local broadcasts for the first round at least.  Gotta love Ken and Mick.
