#2437036 9/16 Pre-Season GDT : Red Wings 4 at Penguins 1

Posted by drumnj on 16 September 2013 - 07:58 PM

You don't wanna watch, not that the Wings are playing bad.  Just that the Pens announcers could possibly be worse than the NBC crew.

#2433445 Chris Chelios Hired by Fox Sports 1

Posted by drumnj on 16 August 2013 - 12:30 PM

This news is a little old, but didn't see it posted here.


Chelios will be joinging the NHL/hockey team as an analysit on the new sports network Fox Sports 1, which is launching early tomorrow morning at 6am ET.


He's mainly schedule to cover the Olympics, but could see him on there from time to time for NHL coverage.



“I talked about that with the people from Fox,” Chelios said. “I’m going to leave it up to them. I can sit on the fence, I can be edgy. I think I can be charismatic.

“I’m going to start doing some telecasting from the house two or three months ahead of time.”

Here's another story: http://www.chicagono...fox-sports-176/


Should be interesting seeing what his personality will be like on air.  We all know how much he loves the camera....

Would be nice if NHL Networks picks up the Calder finals...to then have better feeds instead of the jumbotron view via ahllive.


Dekeyser is said to start for game 1 of the finals.

Ok, we gotta have a topic here for the Calder Cup Finals.
Grand Rapids Griffins are taking on the Syracuse Crunch, who are the defending champions (Tampa's affiliate was Norfolk last year).  They have only lost 4 total games the past 2 post season, only 1 so far this post season.
I know we were kind of worried/looking forward to this, but with the big clubs.  However this should be pretty exciting for Wings fans.
Game 1      Sat., June 8       GRIFFINS at Crunch     7 p.m.
Game 2      Sun., June 9      GRIFFINS at Crunch     6 p.m.
Game 3      Wed., June 12   Crunch at GRIFFINS     7 p.m.
Game 4      Fri., June 14      Crunch at GRIFFINS     7 p.m.
*Game 5     Sat., June 15     Crunch at GRIFFINS     7 p.m.
*Game 6     Tue., June 18    GRIFFINS at Crunch     7 p.m.
*Game 7     Thu., June 20    GRIFFINS at Crunch     7 p.m.


Watch for free





For those that haven't seen it, this is the Playoff intro video the Griffins had at the beginning of the postseason.

#2409056 Big 3rd Period Come From Behind Win. Griffins Heading to Conf. Finals

Posted by drumnj on 21 May 2013 - 08:39 PM

I know this isn't the right section, but no one bothers to look in the Griffins sub-forum.  Hopefully it can stay here for a bit.


Griffins close out the series against the Marlies with a 3 goal come from behind in the 3rd period.  Within 5 minutes Griffins get goals from 3 different players winning the game 4-3.

Tatar notched himself 2 more this game, bringing his playoff total to 8 and 11 points overall in 11 games.


Griffins have been pretty impressive so far these playoffs.  Should be some good experience for those that will be up with the Wings next season.  As we have found young players really grow during playoffs when everything is on the line.

#2408904 Babcock tells players they are soft. Pushes them to play better.

Posted by drumnj on 21 May 2013 - 11:21 AM

Article I saw posted elsewhere, figured it would be a good discussion here.



Asked if he ever hated Babcock, Kindl didn’t hesitate.

“Oh, yeah,” he said. “I’m sure I’m not the only one who hated him. He’s hard. When things don’t go well, he doesn’t like you. He’s telling you, ‘How soft are you?’ Stuff like that. But in the long run, it’s always helped me out. It always kind of give me the motivation to get better and work on stuff.”

Babcock will tell you he gives the veterans their space, and that’s true. He holds fewer meetings with them. Players will tell you that he harder on the veterans, and that’s true, too. He has higher expectations of them because of their experience level.

“There’s definitely a lot of the vets where he’ll still come down on them,” Smith said. “He won’t coddle them or hold their hand.”
