What if the ads on the jerseys were Watermelon Laffy Taffy ads? What would you all do then, huh?

Uh oh, somewhere out in space there's a hockey fan floating around.


What's more out of place, the astronaut or the two Panthers jerseys?

#2587978 4/2 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2

Ironic since two of them have none

I agree about pulk I m just not sure who I would take out. I think it would have to be helm


So make our top 6 more effective by putting in Teemu, and make our bottom 6 more effective by putting Helm down there? That makes too much sense for a Babs' line combos.

The Wings are in the driver's seat the next two games, they really need to prove they haven't completely slowed down.



Hoping for a big win from Mrazek, some Datsyuk magic, and maybe a goal or two from Tatar.

Snowy day here in Denver. Just stocked up on beer, wine, and food, now to turn the Wings game on.... oh, I  have to wait over THREE MORE HOURS. sof03409ujsdif.


I don't like sharks. Go Wings.

#2557405 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by hooon on 17 December 2014 - 01:55 AM

Honestly, next shootout they should just throw Mrazek in cold and have Quincey, Ericsson and Al Sobotka as the shooters, because, what the hell, right?

#2555090 Lines Thread

Posted by hooon on 09 December 2014 - 12:44 PM

I like the new lines a lot and I love the kids getting some top 6 time. All summer I talked up Jurco and said he'd break out this season. Hasn't quite happened yet, but he has looked a lot better recently and it does seem like he's on the verge of some good things. Hopefully playing with Gus and Z helps to spark all three of them. 


If these lines work I wonder if Babs throws Abby on the 4th line when he comes back or if he splits everyone up.

Its as though somebody vaguely described the basic idea of what a cougar looks like to the logo designer and 30 seconds later he came up with this.

Whose this nyquist kid? And why do they keep talking about him?


Just some third liner.

Not gonna lie though...I love those movies.


Quarter of an inch the other way, woulda missed completely.

#2539294 Kindl on the block

Posted by hooon on 09 October 2014 - 12:56 PM














...even Stralman went way after Kindl.  Not saying we were the only ones who picked a dud, there are always duds.  Have a great career Kindl, just not here anymore...


Yes but every draft is like that in hindsight, and the Wings certainly weren't the only teams to miss out on those players you listed. Not every pick pans out and at least Kindl made it to the big leagues. There's a lot of guys in that draft, many who were even drafted before Kindl who never even made it to the NHL.


I hear you, but its all just hindsight.... like how we picked Ferraro and the pick after that the Avs got O'Reilly.

Good for Toots. Never got the fair shake here, and he's a heart and soul guy.

#2538827 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by hooon on 07 October 2014 - 03:06 PM

Seems like Babs has really been calling out Holland lately, even comparing him to a nagging wife who always gets her way. I like that Babs is getting fed up, but this also doesn't speak too well for his contract negotiations if he and the GM are so far apart on things. 

#2538740 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by hooon on 07 October 2014 - 12:10 PM

I like the d-pairings all things considered, and I'm willing to hold my breath on the PP units for a little while.


I just wish they'd switch Nyquist and Abby in those forward lines. I know its all the rage for our brass to vilify players who didn't put up big numbers in the pre-season... but why is Nyquist relegated to the third line with non-offensive linemates?


Can't wait for Datsyuk to be back.

#2538067 Datsyuk 2nd degree separated shoulder injury - out approx 4 weeks

Posted by hooon on 02 October 2014 - 09:10 PM

Its nice that he's doing well, but I remember this happening last year with our guys where we'd get them back in the lineup as soon as possible, and then they'd be out again soon after, or be relatively ineffective when they returned. I'd almost rather he takes the extra week or two off, rather than risk reinjuring or playing at less than 100%. 


Either way, its good news that he's healing well, and I'm excited for when he comes back and works his magic again.
