#2644497 Evander Kane Under Sex Investigation, Not Charged

If you kept everyone named "Kane" out of Buffalo, you would not have this problem! Kane + Buffalo = Trouble. Simple math. 




#2643616 Naming The New Arena Suggestion

I think "The Hot n Ready Arena" has a powerful ring to it.

I always wanted Satan on the Wings just so I could get a jersey.


#2642478 12/11 GDT : Red Wings at New Jersey Devils, 7:00 EST

Ok, an odd night all around. Just an odd vibe at The Rock tonight (On Star Wars night) and most of it had nothing to do with the game until the end. These people of whom I live amongst are the biggest frontrunners during a game I've ever seen. The biggest chants and cheers this year have gotten worse as they obsess over the Rangers in an old chant and have added a vulgar reference to the Flyers and rarely got emotional on much until they scored and then won.
 
I have two questions of everyone as they happened at the other end. What the H-E-double hockey sticks was that faceoff delay call on Z? Was that a thing? Also, after the tying goal went in and it passed the high stick sniff test I couldn't see anything that looked like goaltender interference on the appeal, did I miss anything?
 
The guy two seats over from me was an overzealous fan but in a funny kind of way. Very frustrated and after the Devils passed up several, maybe ten shooting chances on powerplays the guys was wailing "Oh shooooooot it, shoot the effing puckkkkk and turning around sounding like Jerry Stiller as Mr. Costanza and I was taken back to the night we Wings fans were losing our minds over such passed up shots chanting "Shoot the Puck!" There were a few real loudmouths, and kids, this is a tactically stupid thing to do but I digress, chanting how they had won three cups on the way out. Now, that may sound like big news to a fan of say the Panthers or Blue Jackets fans but a lot of Wings fans were pretty much snickering. This brings me to my final odd moment, after NJ scored the OT winner, and it was the only doggone goal scored in front of us all night, a woman in her 50's with short black hair reached down and tapped my shoulder and said something I couldn't hear over the victory music. I asked her to repeat what she said and she did but I still couldn't make it out but I'm guessing was her 20 something son was shaking his head at me and quietly giving me the "Don't listen to her, just let her words go I'm so embarrassed" look. I asked again and she turned around and showed me her.....are you sitting down LGW? Her #22 Claude Lemieux jersey (we wear sweaters they wear jerseys) and made some hitting motion and I made out the words "Your boy" which I could only imagine she meant Draper. OK, first off you're in the red zone like Vincent Vega warned about. Secondly your son is almost cowering (I'm a big guy). Thirdly when he hit Draper he played for Colorado. Derp. As I walked past her held up and tugged on my Wings crest and then held up my two INDEX fingers and told her "11 Cups" and we left.
 

 

Alright.
Down to business first.
Zetterberg put his hand on the puck in the faceoff circle, (which is a penalty automatically now) and the replay on the tying goal for goalie interference, it looked like the guys stick(can't recall his name right now) may have hit Howie's blocker and/or stick. On the replay they showed, it didn't look that way at all. My guess was the wings were trying to cash in on the rash of poor choices referees have made when a challenge has been made for goalie interference, and just came out on the wrong side of the coin flip this time.


And as for the rest of the comments, I appreciate the tales from the game, always fun being regaled by stories from away barns. But yeah, did that woman seem like she was just trying to rib you in A good natured type of way?
Or drunk enough that her knowledge of the NHL/Colorado lore was the last facet of her motor skills that were functioning properly? Cuz Im guessing she probably had quite a bit to drink, especially if her son was smart enough to show a level of shame that expressive without speaking. ha. Or was she a mob wives/jersey shore afficianado(I heard that attribute skips a generation, Hahaha)

Also, were you wearing a draper jersey? Or even a grind liners jersey? Maltby? McCarty? Ha.

awesome pictures BTW too, once again, Thanks for the share man.

Edit: Do you know what they call a quarter pounder in France?

#2629576 10/9 GDT : @ Red Wings 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 0

THIS is exactly the team Zetterberg and Datsyuk need around them to be successful. Not so the last 3-4 years. This clicks.

Oh hell yes.  The team has a pop in their step that I haven't seen in years.  Toronto looks EXACTLY like we did last year and we are looking like a brand new team.  I dunno if its Blash or if its just the amount of youth on the team, but we are moving and we are making plays.  Before these same guys looked like they were skating through mud and playing defensive hockey with spurts of life. 

 

I love the look of this team, we are gonna do quite well this year.

Babs would have convinced Holland that The Kid needed to stay in the A.

 

At the very lest he would have never been playing with Z on the first line. I'm so glad we have a new coach.

 

It looked like a different Wings team. They hustled their asses off and looked truly hungry. I can't wait for the rest of this season.

Bettman is looking through a rulebook as we write this to see if Tampa can be awarded a 5 on 2......for the last 5 minutes.


Rule 53.4 subsection C if Wings are actually looking good against a good team then a 5 on 2 can be awarded to the good team in order to even the odds of good team winning, ignoring the team that is working the hardest.
