#2667097 Mantha

Posted by Richdg on 11 April 2016 - 02:28 PM

2 goals in 10 games over the course of a season is 16 goals. How many current F's scored that many this year? 4. 16 goals would be tied for 5th with Datsyuk this year. For anyone that doesn't think he made a difference isn't watching the games. he did what he should do: get the loose pucks behind the net and along the boards, he scored goals in front of the net-which BTW isn't his game. Blashill used him wrong-mainly because he has no other choices. Mantha is a sniper and is great at driving the net-not camping in front of it. But that is another issue all together.

Now he wasn't playing so yes send him down and let him play. But stop with the stupid statements. he wasn't a spare part in the PO's last year. he played every game for the Griffins.

Almost have the steel wrapped all the way around on the lower portion. Bunch of concrete prefabs in place for the rows of seats in the upper.

I like it. Need a little bit of nasty on this soft team. Most current Red Wings wouldn't dare cut off the mattress tag, and if they did they would probably turn themselves in the next day.

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates the past month.

 

Made a few updates to the blog from a flyover yesterday: http://wingsarena.tumblr.com

 

You can start to see the positioning of the arena bowl in relation to the site now. Looking forward to flying over when they start to build the bowl.

 

As for updates coming into the colder months, as long as it isn't wet out and not super windy, I will still fly. If I can't fly, I will try to get pics best I can from the street level.

Any word on if anything from the Joe is moving to the new house. Horn, scoreboard, most importantly boards?

 

Bring the troughs to the new arena! 




#2583675 Jordin Tootoo's Goal

Posted by 55fan on 21 March 2015 - 10:30 AM

That was a nice goal.  I've been watching some Devils hockey since he went there.  I can't believe that we couldn't find a place for him when he was here.  He does much more than just pester and fight.




#2577529 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 02 March 2015 - 01:13 PM

Bill Roose saying two picks?
 
The Wheel Deal ‏@Bill_Roose
#RedWings have landed a right-handed shooting D-man, Marek Zidlicky from NJD for 2015 conditional second-rounder and 2016 third-rounder.

We don't have a second rounder this year, so he's gotta be wrong.


#2577431 Is East just as good or better than West this year?

Posted by toby91_ca on 02 March 2015 - 12:40 PM

Since trades are at a bit of a lull right now...

 

The top 6 teams in the East are all over 80 points and only 3 teams in the West are at that level.  Is this mostly due to more high end and low end teams in East vs. more parity in the West?

 

For what it's worth, East vs. West games have been almost a dead heat....with the West having a very slightly better win percentage (175-130-42 for East vs. West and 181-140-35 for West vs. East).

 

Maybe it's just me....but I haven't really noticed any big and scary, consistently dominating West teams yet this year.  Nashville is the obvious team to point to (1st overall), but for some reason I just don't see them as dominating....maybe that's just history and I'll just need to get used to it...we'll see.




#2538761 Blast from the Past

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 October 2014 - 01:08 PM

Ha yes those are him rrasco and yes he had a pretty rockin mustache for most of his career . lol

 

I was born after his hockey career was over but have a ton of Red Wings memorabilia including old programs and tons of pictures and a bunch of international keepsakes while he played for Canada and the London Lions in Europe.

 

Many are the items international teams exchange with each other before/after games.

 

Also if you don't know about the London Lions, I'd recommend checking them out.  It's a cool part of Red Wings history.

You can order any name you want on a jersey/sweater like those dorks who have their own names put on them.

Watching the wings tank would slowly kill my soul. 




#2478623 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 January 2014 - 11:08 PM

Westgarth is useless. I keep hearing I want a Kocur, I want a Probert or a McCarty. All those guys were extremely effective. They didn't just go out there and start stuff. Kocur was one of the best defensive forwards in the league in his hay day. Probert could have scored 40 goals, McCarty played in every situation.

The point is you want an effective 4th line. We have a good start with Glendening as the center. Now get him some decent sized wingers. Penalty kill, energy, physical play, and great D. That's what your 4th line should be all about.

Good one lol

Good one lol

Mitchell Callahan would do nicely and throw Abdelkader on the other wing and you have an energy line that hits like the grind line of old.
