Tampa Bay Lightning dress code for fans

01 June 2015 - 11:56 PM

I really think the Captain (#19) may have lost some credibility, although i have no idea if he has a hand in this childish behavior.  I attended the first Tampa home game against the Wings, with  the Captain as the new GM, where over 80% of the crowd was wearing Wings sweaters, shirts, hats, etc.. now this, please see the following link.    http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2015-06-01/tampa-bay-s-hockey-dress-code-insults-lightning-fans 

  To be clear, i am not alleging that the Captain had anything to do with this decision, but it is an absolute embarrassment to the Lightning organization as well their fan base. I guess once expansion teams enter the picture this type of behavior exists.  

Devallano spectator at the Leafs Sabres game tonight

I was watching the Leafs Sabres game this evening and the camera zoomed in Jimmy D when the commentators were discussing Gordie Howe's stroke. I wonder if he was there to watch any particular player n the ice tonight?

Players from within the organization

03 July 2014 - 10:19 PM

As i look at our current roster i wonder if there is another team in the NHL that is comprised of so many players that have been drafted and that have come up through the organization. Aside from Gustavsson, Miller, and Weiss, every other player currently signed by by Detroit was drafted by the Wings and were "home grown".  If i am missing someone, please advise. It seems this a reflection of the teams inability to sign free agents or make lasting trades. Does anyone know of a team that has so many players that have been "home grown"and so few players added through free agency or trades?
