#2679274 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by Jersey Wing on 24 June 2016 - 10:42 PM

A little song tonight sent out to one Ken Holland from Red Wings nation on WLGW.

 

Stax of wax and platters that matter, it's 11:39, 21 minutes before the witching hour on the eastern seaboard and here's Bette Midler

Must see! Don Cherry and Ron McLean talk about Gordie and Grapes tells a hilarious story about the first thing Gordie ever said to him...

The famous 5 minute standing ovation for Gordie at Joe Louis Arena in the 1980 All-Star game




#2677363 Gordie Howe has passed away. 1928-2016.

Please, I beg of everyone with this petition, let Mr. Howe pass and let the family move on before you put the Illitch family in the uncomfortable position of probably NOT changing the name of the arena, especially since the Gordie Howe bridge is being built.

 

I love Gordie Howe and the Red Wings as much as life itself but don't use his passing to pressure the owners right now and make them say something unpopular.

RIP Big Man.

 

You built what we all enjoy today, there are no words that can tell you how much that means to all of us in Wings nation.




#2675927 ECF : Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by Jersey Wing on 13 May 2016 - 10:08 PM

As someone who has learned far too much about knees from my own meniscus tears, a torn acl and a tear in the mcl in one knee, three years of PT and a partial replacement next month, I think the way Bishop went down is ACL related. Straight stretch too far down the middle. Not saying he tore it but his reaction tells me it's bad.




#2675333 Kentucky Derby: Nyquist

Posted by Jersey Wing on 07 May 2016 - 04:00 PM

Late jockey change at Churchill Downs: The owner has decided it's best if Nyquist gets ridden by Wings fans just like at JLA.




#2675043 ECSF : New York Islanders vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Don't like Drouin? Has Hickey got a hit for you. 100% clean and legal. Reminded me immediately of Konstantinov.

#2675025 Marquette's Lakeview Arena named Kraft Hockeyville winner!

Posted by Jersey Wing on 03 May 2016 - 05:59 PM

Hats off to Lakeview, the cozy little barn on the shore of Lake Superior, that beat out a rink in Calgary to be this year's Kraft Hockeyville arena and they get $150K in arena upgrades/fixes and a preseason NHL game. 

 

I spent many many nights at Lakeview as an NMU underclassman enjoying those Wildcats. Dallas Drake and Jim Hiller, former Wings, both played there.

#2673712 Money On The Board - 25 years worth of playoffs style!

Posted by Jersey Wing on 25 April 2016 - 10:24 PM

5$ more dollars BECAUSE ST. LOUIS BEAT THE STUPID HAWKS in the first round!

Look, did Mrazek screw up? Oh you bet. Did he screw up any worse than Osgood on Jamie Baker AND Jamie Langenbrunner? No. He did win two cups here as primary guy in the playoffs though.

 

I'm going Team Mrazek and even though Jimmy's a quality guy I'm getting old and right now PM gives us the best chance to win the Cup again.




#2673326 We all know if you're a Hawks fan your upbringing was questionable

Posted by Jersey Wing on 24 April 2016 - 07:36 AM

Last night (and I'm three weeks away from a partial knee replacement) I see this guy, 20-25, you can't tell sometimes with Blackhawks fans they've had such hard lives and run-ins with the law. He's sitting with his gym bag in front of him instead of offering his seat to one of the two ladies on either side of him. I got up and offered my seat to a pregnant woman and my knee hurts like hell this morning. This guy, well, it's upbringing. Either you do or you don't. The guy with the Wings t-shirt on (after wearing it proudly even in defeat at Shake Shack in Madison Square Park last night) gives up his seat, the Hawks fan does not.

 

Which fanbase is Goofus and which is Gallant in the Hilites Magazine of hockey?

Wings in 9! Gotta keep working hard. Can't get down after just four losses!




#2672249 ECQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings at Tampa Bay Lightning, 7:00 EST

Posted by Jersey Wing on 21 April 2016 - 07:01 PM

I miss the old days when the fourth line was Holmstrom Larionov and Robitaille. Stupid gary Bettman. HE'S the reason we can't have nice things. Him and like eight poor loser owners.
