In Topic: Fox Sports DET to stream DRW games online

That might just work if you live in Michigan...Those of us who live outside of Michigan would be outta luck with the FSD.


Yes, but you can use NHL TV, which those of us who are in-market cannot.


My solution solves for if you're in-market and don't have cable.

Still no legal options for those of us who cut the cord and are still within the FSD market


It looks like SlingTV will offer an option with FSD.


I was going to use SlingTV, but with this new option I'll just "borrow" my parent cable credentials and watch them that way.  I already get Disney and HBO via my parents.


Fox Sports Regional's (FSR's) are available in the Sling Blue package for $25 a month:  https://www.sling.com/


It also comes with a bunch of other channels too.

Let's dispel once and for all with the fiction that Ken Holland doesn't know what he is doing, he knows exactly what he is doing.

In Topic: Should any of #91, #13, #40, #30 be retired? Poll/Discussion

What about 96?


HA!  I love Holmstrom.  He was my favorite player for a long stretch and a part of FOUR Stanley Cup teams.


However, he's no superstar.  He's not universally heralded nor acclaimed.


Holmstrom is one of those dudes that gets stuff done.  He might not be the flashiest, or have all the deke's, ice time, or goals to show for it.


He's a breed of folks that won't have numbers retired, but will be in the hearts of folks for a long time.  When I think of his type of player, I think of the heavy lifters like Draper, McCarty, and Murphy (pre-new glasses).


No, there's no way in hell Holmstrom's number should be retired.
