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.
For the 15 year anniversary of the Avs/Wings March 26 brawl game I'll be showing the game in it's entirety at 3:34 CT....hopefully starting at the time. That way it ends right when pregame starts for today's game.
