#2666747 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by Jersey Wing on 10 April 2016 - 08:50 AM

Done in the NHL after the playoffs:



I'm of the mind Pavel can do what he wants to at this point. He's given his all for the Red Wings and dazzled fans for years. I've never seen him take shifts of when we didn't find out later he played badly injured. I'm fine with Pavel leaving on his terms.

#2666233 4/9 GDT : at Rangers 3, Red Wings 2

Posted by Jersey Wing on 09 April 2016 - 01:09 PM

Ottawa up 4-1.


Reminds me of the night 3 buddies and I went to Tiger Stadium the night they clinched the AL East in 84. Got there waaaay early and the Tigers magic # was 1, a win by them or a Blue Jays loss and it was the division. The Tigers started slowly but Boston started beating th bejeesus out of the Jays like 7-1 and then 9-2 and the party was on in those upper deck bleachers early.

Time for a defining game boys. If you can't come up wioth one out of the last two then you don't deserve the playoffs. Over the last 3-4 years I've actually been of the mind that late season decisions aren't being made to procure a Stanley Cup but to just get in the playoffs and get 2 or 3 more home dates out of it all. These are the Red Wings. They should be worrying more about Stanley Cups and long runs than wheezing across the line. If it means we all take a long hard look at Nyquist's regression under a coach they should be flourishing under sobeit. Look at the hash the D has become. Again, there's plenty of time to discuss these matters if they don't win. It wouldn't be the end of the world.


Mostly we need to look at not JUST the players now when we read the words "Of those much is given much is expected", those are the organizational mantra and everyone, all the way up needs to do more. Playoffs are fun but they've become the thing now haven't they?

Sorry, didn't see one and well, this game kinda counts. Feel free to delete.


Wings fight back the early B's push and win 5-4. Those two points mean one thing:



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

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!!

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

Posted by Jersey Wing on 12 December 2015 - 12:06 AM

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.
