#2399092 Things that Shanny missed.

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 07 May 2013 - 09:13 PM

Corey Perry's devastating high sticking to his own face. That bastard should be suspended indefinitely.


Most epic thing posted on this forum in a while.

Samuelson should be arrested for loitering on our roster.

My wife heard me laughing and wanted to see what I was laughing at.  I showed her the video and then my wife asked me the following:


"Is that the NHL?"

Jimmy has been rock solid.

Please give Datsyuk someone to work with on his line. At this rate he will leave for Russia next week. I would. 


What are you smoking?  Pavel has... oh wait...  CLEARY AND ABBY?  WHAT THE....

#2361327 Clowe suspension review for coming off bench against Hawks

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 25 February 2013 - 09:06 PM

He didn't illegally come off the bench.  The replays clearly show he was standing BEFORE Shaw even boarded Pavelski.


He's being suspended for coming off the bench legally to start an altercation.  He is guilty of it, but I don't think he should cost him two games.  Maybe fines and one game at most.


If anything, I'm much more concerned about the Lemieux-Draper style boarding that Shaw did.  I think that Shaw should be more likely to be suspended in that play, not Clowe.


Clowe is an ass-hat, but he responded appropriately for what he just watched right in front of him.  It's too bad McCarty had to wait a year to beat Claudia and couldn't take care of business on the spot.

#2361308 Kronwall destroyed a glass bowl on my desk with the power of his goal

The bowl was probably already damaged from the Kronner-Havlat hit and this goal just finished it off.

#2348964 WOW Cable Subscribers - FSD, FSD+ Issues During Wings Games

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 29 January 2013 - 10:51 PM

The last few games, especially the game on the night of 1/29/13 WOW Cable cable subscribers have had video quality issues that range from "annoying" to "unwatchable" to just plain no signal at all.


Here's an example of the way WOW Cable subscribers experience Detroit Red Wings Hockey:  https://www.facebook...200521990521174


Please understand WOW customers, you ARE alone in these issues.  Folks on these forums have reported NO issues with Comcast, U-verse, and DirecTV.  Only WOW Cable has these repeated outages affecting FSD and FSD+ and Red Wings' game coverage.


For those of you that are sick of missing hockey games and watching as the audio cuts in and out, there are a few things we can do:


1.  Report these unresolved issues to LARA (Licensing and Regulatory Affairs):  http://www.dleg.stat.../videocomp.html

2.  Light up WOW's marketing tool, their Facebook page:  https://www.facebook...owbuzz?filter=2

3.  Light up their Twitter feed:  https://twitter.com/TheWOWBuzz

4.  Call WOW and tell them that if you don't get service, they don't get paid.  Demand a partial refund.  Call them at (866) 496-9669.  Take option 3 (service issues) then option 1 (video service)



Light 'em folks, let them know we didn't wait this long to miss the 48 games that we do get!

Shootouts are stupid....


Ties are stoopider.

#2343862 1/21: Red Wings 4 at Blue Jackets 3 (SO)

Why does it sound like a puck hitting the pipes every few seconds?  It's driving me nuts.


I'm watching FSD in HD through WOW Cable.

Considering our record in 'em, sure hope not many afternoon ones on NBC,




Welcome to NBC Sports this afternoon in Detroit!  Now we're going to go to the CROSBY ISO CAM!  Crosby isn't playing today, so this is actually a live shot of him at home doing stretches to help loosen up his sprained [feminine part].

#2335143 Fleury pursuing charges against Graham James

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 03 December 2012 - 01:22 PM

The sentence was way too light.

Hats off to Fleury. Even if this creep didn't get what he deserved, Fleury is a role model for abused children telling them to take action.

You can say that again.
