#2656013 2/27 Stadium Series GDT : Red Wings at Colorado Avalanche, 8:00 EST

Posted by Jersey Wing on 27 February 2016 - 11:41 PM

Nice of the NHL and the city of Denver to put on such a spread and forum for all things Red Wings this weekend. See, the Avs need the Red Wings to be their playdate for something like this or they wouldn't even have an outdoor game there. Against whom? Calgary? Minnesota? New Jersey? The Wings could easily host 6 or 7 teams and have it be a huge success.

 

Also, if I am elected president the wall around Denver just got ten feet higher and Mike Keane is paying for it!!

#2652451 2/12 GDT : Colorado Avalanche at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Follow me here, I got it all figured out. I read this this morning on the Twitter:

NHL Public Relations ‏@PR_NHL  30s30 seconds ago

Per @EliasSports: @Avalanche Semyon Varlamov is 14-3-3 in 20 career regular-season GP when making 40 or more saves.

 

So, ipso facto, if the Wings, or whomever take like only TEN shots on goal, this guy is a statistical sieve. Don't shoot on net most of the time, just pass it back and forth or play the board game for no good reason = WIN!

#2645210 Anyone see this insane puck curve that robbed the Canadiens?

Posted by Jersey Wing on 31 December 2015 - 04:48 AM

I didn't edit this other than to take it from an mp4 format to a gif. This puck really really did this in Montreal vs Florida tonight. I guess I should say "happened" to the Habs

One last picture I want to share from Friday. I walked quick so I could catch up to get them in frame.

 

I'm trying to capture the spirit of the the thing

#2642458 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.

 

Onto the pictures

Apologies if I said at some point I was going to do today's game thread (I can't even remember) been back and forth to Michigan so much due to a sick family member the weeks just haze together.

 

Anyway I will be going tonight and will hopefully have some good pics I can share.




#2629574 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.

Posted by Jersey Wing on 20 August 2015 - 01:05 PM

Done by year/era and YES, the Wings Avs rivalry as they see it ran the longest of any of the heavyweight rivalries. OMG, so many great fight and brawl clips mixed with some good writing:

#2618650 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by Jersey Wing on 02 July 2015 - 09:03 AM

I've worked in PR much of my adult life. I'll say this (and mea culpa I think they SHOULD retire Fedorov's number as to me he met the contributions necessary on the ice and is a first ballot HOFer) unless Ken Holland went off on a rant ie off the reservation talking point, the very fact he'd address the Red Wings organeyezation is looking into retiring Fedorov's number tells me it's more likely than not to happen. They've never really felt the need to address that issue before. They sure didn't have to offer that info now. Sure the way he left was iffy but though times were different Ted Lindsay came and went and I don't want to live in a world where his number isn't retired in one building or another.

 

I think it's more likely to happen than not based on Holland's comments, and I will have to change my signature again.




#2618395 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by Jersey Wing on 01 July 2015 - 04:38 PM

Are they better for the singings today? YES they are. More competition from the kids, more insurance for injuries. No prospects lost. Money comes and goes.

 

So far the Wings have gotten better.




#2608825 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by Jersey Wing on 20 May 2015 - 12:29 PM

If it's Toronto, Babcock won't win there, ie second round of the playoffs for three years at least. If they sign him it's to get a big gate boost and a big name coach in hopes of signing big name free agents.

So Mr. Babcock, how ARE things shaping up at Harrenhal?
