#2215395 Veterans Players Choosing to Wear visors/ Younger Players Going Withou

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 15 October 2011 - 06:42 PM

It makes me wonder if an argument can be made for full cage helmets being manditory or at least make the visors manditory. I realize it's the NHL and players should be allowed to play how they want and wear what they want as long as it's within the rules of the NHL but it just seems that with all the saftey measures the NHL takes and has taken over the years that making the helmets a bit more safer would be a good idea. I mean they already did something about the straps and them being a little bit tighter under the chin seems like you'd want to protect your face a bit more. It's happened enough times where a player takes a puck in the face and it results in serious injury. I probably can't see the NHL making a full cage helmet manditory but perhaps the visors one day. Anyone else??

#2214287 How Do You Feel About The Southeast?

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 12 October 2011 - 08:43 AM

First off ummm Southeast Division???????????? Unless I'm reading a Map wrong Detroit is NORTH????? Secondly exactly why do we want the Wings to move East?? Yes it would probably mean more Eastern Conference teams for the Wings to play and for us fans to see but aren't the Wings doing fine in the West?? I mean Numerous Divisional Championship, 5 Conference (Playoff) Championships, Not sure how many President's Trophy Championships since being in the West and 4 Stanley Cup Championships?? What is the big incentive for the Wings to move East and why do so many Wings fans want to move east?? I'm just wondering, not trying to start anything but I guess I just need to be educated.

#2213783 Red Wings Tattoo

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 09 October 2011 - 04:23 PM

Here's my second one. I'll try to find the first one but just so ya know the first one is just the Wings logo nothing special but I'll try to post it. For those of you who think you're to scared or can't handle it. I was born with heart, back, and leg problems. I've had more needles in me than a pin cushion from IV's to Shots, to Drawing Blood. Now there is no way to get used to needles even with everything I've had done and I never thought I'd be able to handle getting one than over a two years ago I met a girl that came to work for the same company that I did she had quite a past and a bunch of really cool tattos and of course I was defiently attracted to her so I figured I'd get a Tattoo. Maybe not the kind of tattoo that she'd be interested in. After all it was my body so I wanted something that represented me so I thought maybe we'd have a little more in common if I got some ink so I got my first Detroit Red Wings Tattoo and of course it never did anything for her. When I made the appoointment for it I was nervous than at the point just minutes before I was in the chair to get it done I had a moment of absolute terror and damn near bailed out, however I had already payed the $70 and I'm a cheap little bastard so I stuck it out and the guy was really cool he printed the logo than put it on my arm and started doing it and before he started he told me he'd just do a little at a time and we could take a break whenever I wanted. I didn't need to take a break and it was a pain that kinda felt good if a pain can really feel good. Now I got this second one in this picture for me becasue I thought it was cool. This one cost $120. I want 3 more Red Wing Themed tattoos two more on like my forearm from my elbow to me wrist with the words DETROIT on my left arm going from elbow to wrist and RED WINGS on my right arm the same way. But becasue I don't have a job right now I can't afford anything. So it's really not that bad at all. For some people it can kinda become and additction like a drug where it does fell pretty good. So for those of you that are a little scared if you really want one start small and you can always go back and get a different one. I'm not sure how to upload photos so hopefully this will do otherwise if you really want to see my ink send me a message and I'll send you my real name and you can facebook me and check out my photos of them. Thanks and Sorry

#2213327 Caps, Pens schedule benefit

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 08 October 2011 - 07:06 AM

It probably won't be just those two teams. That web site linked isn't even the NHL's site, so its most likely that the people reporting at sporting news just don't know who else is participating, so they are putting out just those two names. Maybe to get hits on their web site? Who knows. As I said earlier in this thread, the Wings are doing the same thing as the Caps/Pens, so I'm sure there will be others as well.

Just heard last night during the Wings Home Opener that they were going to be acutioning off their Jersey's for the families of the Plane Crash Victims. That's ALL I wanted to know is that more team were involved and that someone wasn't trying to make the Pens and Caps out to be the two great teams of the league. For all intensive purposes I'm done with this thread. Thanks and Sorry.

#2212953 Caps, Pens schedule benefit

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 07 October 2011 - 02:24 PM

Malkin. Ovechkin. Russians. Dots? Connected.

I understand that Malkin and Ovechkin are Russian but so is Datsyuk an so is a lot of other players in the league. My question is WHY these two teams specifically?? Shouldn't the entire NHL have events like this with ALL 30 NHL Teams since there were some former NHL Players that died on the plane? If I'm out of line fine I apologize to anyone and everyone. I just don't see why it's only the Pens and Caps that are doing this. I know Jimmy Howard had the back of his Mask painted in honor of the 3 Fallen Red Wings and that's great. I just don't want this to be a publicity stunt in order to make the Caps and Pens look like the Saints of the NHL when the Plane Crash should have effected the entire NHL. Sorry for making so many people upset of this post but I get a little tired of hearing about these two teams so much every season becasue of a couple players on each team when there are 30 teams with other players just as great and even better.

#2212592 Caps, Pens schedule benefit

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 06 October 2011 - 07:59 AM

If what I think is happening than I'm disgusted to see this. The Benefit is Fantastic and that's not what I'm upset about; but WHY is it the Pens and Caps doing this. Something tells me that Bettman set this up to make these two teams look this classy. It just so happens that it's Crosby's and Ovechkin's Teams that are doing this. How many players on the plane actually played on the Pens or Caps team?? 3 Former Red Wings died on the plane and yes the Wings went to the Funeral but why aren't they doing something like that. That's more of a thing that I would imagine that Mr. Illitch would set up with the Wings since I truly believe that he is a classy guy. I hope I'm wrong and if I am I'll eat Crow but it just makes me believe that it wasn't truly the idea of these two teams to do this and that there is a mastermind behind it. I know the plane crash did have an effect on Ovechkin at least that's what I heard but it just smells a little fishy to me to make Crosby and Ovechkin and their teams out to be the good guys. If something is going to be done it should envolve the entire NHL. If I'm out of line I apologize.

#2211295 Brendan Smith suspended for 5 games

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 01 October 2011 - 01:51 PM

I'd definetly say it deserves a suspension becasue the NHL needs to crack down on all of this but that seems a bit extensive considering all the other rulings. Also I do think it is all the players responsibility to keep your head up and watch where you're going and for any oncoming danger and try to avoid it. I know it can't all be avoided and it can't be taken out of the game completly but the players have to look out for their own saftey.

#2210495 Fabian Brunnstrom

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 29 September 2011 - 07:11 AM

I'd love to see him at least get a two-way contract becaue if he can get developed properly which Dallas failed to do he will be a big star. I want to see the guys in our system that have been in our system for a few years get their chances first but iff Brunnstrom can continue to play well I think he will force himself into a some type of contract with Detroit.

#2208847 Kindl

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 22 September 2011 - 01:07 PM

I think if Kindl is given the oppertunity he will live up to those words. He's a good young player with a lot of potential and I can see him being a big part of the Wings Defensive Corps!!

#2204901 Red Wing's Wine

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 23 August 2011 - 08:05 AM

I've seen it but I refuse to buy or drink it becasue it's from California and with the simple fact that the Wings hold their Training Camp in Traverse City, Michigan you would've thought they would have worked something out with one of the local wineries here in Michigan. There are about 50 or so Wineries around Michigan so it's not like they couldn't find a Winery right here and support our States Economy. It's probably the one Red Wings item I won't buy.

#2203709 Crosby's 2012 Season now in Question

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 14 August 2011 - 05:08 PM

I'll be the mean and evil one. I can't deny that Crosby is a great player but I hope he doesn't ever play again. Thank who is gonna be Bettman's little baby boy and the face of the NHL. I'm sorry but I HATE Crosby. I hate the fact that I live in Michigan and whenever I go into a hockey shop or a sports store the only Reebok Hockey Stick has Crosby's name and number on it; like he is the only player in the NHL that uses Rebook equipment and can endorse for Reebok. I know that's Reebok's thing and has nothing to do with Crosby playing but I think back to the 09 Cup Finals and listening to my local sports radio show and all anyone could talk about was Crosby not even the rest of the Penguins squad just Crosby and his tremendous skills. Everytime I think of 09 I get sick, and I feel I always will. It's as if he is the ultimate Hockey God and I just can't stand to hear about it and even if he doesn't play we'll still hear all the NHL talk about him not playing but for me it's better than hearing about him being the NHL's hero and all the other crap they can come up with to make Sidney Crosby into Superman. So I hope he NEVER plays again.

#2203104 HockeyFest

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 10 August 2011 - 07:37 AM

This is the first day of the NHL Prospect Tournament in Travese City so I won't be attending a different Hockeyfest in the form of some actual games. Can't wait for the NHL Prospect Tournament. Hockeyfest looks fun but I'd rather been in TC watching some hockey!!

#2200704 Are you addicted to the Red Wings?

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 24 July 2011 - 09:21 AM

Whether Addiction is overused or if it's even the right term but I have to say I'm very addicted to the Wings, and I'm proud of it. I'm a die-hard Wings fan and a die-hard Hockey fan. Yes I crave info about My Team and all of hockey all the time even in the dead of July. The Wings are my team and I'll be addicted if I want and I'm just fine with it lol. GO RED WINGS!!!!

#2199734 Red Wings sign Ty Conklin to 1 year contract

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 20 July 2011 - 08:42 AM

Other than Larsson coming back this is exactly what I was hoping for so it's a great signing and I'm thrilled they were able to get it done. Conks is a good solid back-up and I think will do great again here in Detroit!! Welcome Back Conks!!

#2198142 Apparently, we were finalists for Vokoun?

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 12 July 2011 - 02:14 PM

I can't see why the Wings would need to sign Vokoun. Sure I can see them having interest in him but with Jimmy as our starter why would we need to spend the money on him. Our main concern should be signing a back-up goalie.
