#2506972 Charity Hockey game brawl

Good ol' hockey!  Even in a charity game the fighting spirit of hockey lives on.  Too funny.

#2501781 3/27 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs. Red Wings 4

Gus was doing pretty well with Franzen and coincidently Franzen was doing great with Gus. Jurco on the other hand was doing great on the kids line. I just feel like putting those two lines back together will help with Jurco's comfort level, and hopefully playing with Gus will get Franzen hot.


I agree but I would also like to see what Jurco can bring for that line.  He's a high energy guy who should make more room for Mule to get into shooting positions.

Emmerton sent down.  Callahan and Bertuzzi in the line up

Hopefully there won't be any pre game injuries that put Cleary back into the lineup again....

I like this because they chose to dump Sammy rather than send down a kid who's been playing great instead!

According to Khan, Holland is meeting with coaches before they decide who to call up.  HOPEFULLY its Jurco!

#2427025 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

I'd much rather have Weiss at 4.9 than Fil at even 4 per.  Great signing.

#2426940 Stephen Weiss on his way?

Posted by gurnsy200 on 05 July 2013 - 01:14 PM

Tatar takes over for Brunner = much cheaper and could be better yet.

Weiss over Fil = Great improvement

Alfie over Cleary = Fantastic


Liking the offseason so far!

#2382710 Why do you cheer for the Red Wings?

Being a Canadian, watching "Captain Canada", Stevie "Wonder" Yzerman created the Winged Wheel love for me.  That and it was fun to watch the Russian 5.

Eaves out with his sore jaw,  Nyquist has been recalled.

#2366151 Swiss hockey player paralyzed after hit

I don't know what could really be done to address this. In high-speed contact sports like hockey, serious injuries of this sort are always a risk, albeit a remote one. It comes with the territory, so to speak.



One thing I remember growing up was there was a class or series of on ice sessions that taught everyone there on how to properly deliver a body check and how to take a hit.  First thing you learn is if you are going to get hit, get against the boards.  9/10 times you won't get hurt.  The moment you're even a foot away from the boards, you're vulnerable and risk injury.  I know for a fact that I wasn't taught to engage a player before getting to the boards.  Maybe this is a new teaching or it is just people being scared to be hit (and not knowing any better), but I see this play a lot now in the NHL.  In this case, clearly, it isn't a wise decision.
