However a positive note. The Griffins game today had a bench clearing brawls, goalies faught too. 13 players ejected and the Griffins score a franchise record 11 goals. All against the Chicago farm team, Rockford.
I won't be around for the game as I'll be driving. Hoping that everything has stayed the same from last season as ahllive like to mess with stuff that gets things out of whack. Did a quick test last night, but won't know how effect that was until actual gametime. I'll check on it when I can.
I remember when I was 8 or 9 I built a Steve Yzerman out of Legos. Obviously it didn't look anything like him, but I would have hockey cards I'd use for templates and just build trying to match all the lines and colors while making everything proportional. I'm sure there is a picture of it somewhere in my mom's collection of photos from when I was a kid. I believe it was about a foot tall, ah memories.
I agree. Holland used to be like Shero. He took many risks but he got burned a couple times ( ex. trading for Lang) and now he is all about making the safe decisions. Problem is we arnt the Wings of 8 years ago with the likes of Yzerman and Lidstrom. Players don't want to come to Detroit like they used to. Start taking risks Holland! You can't get anywhere in this league thinking players will come to you.
There is still Dats. I think a lot of players around the league would love to play with him. Going 1st pick in last seasons All-Star game is a testament of that.
