Topics I've Started

Advertising on jerseys

22 December 2009 - 04:44 PM

Why not allow the NHL teams to advertise on their jerseys?

5 million per season for a chest logo
3 million per season for a back logo below the numbers
1 million for a right shoulder logo
1 million for a left shoulder logo

What would this hurt?

1 x 12

If you could stick 12 of one forward on the Wings out on the ice, who would you pick?

For Example:


I'd pick Helm.

Ok, here's the deal: If you had wishes to ask ONE PERSON that has any type of relatioinship with the Red Wings (could be a fan, coach, GM, player, etc.), what would they be?

Brett Lebda

This guy balls for the Wings. For as much crap as this guy takes, he's a damn consistent player for Detroit. I'm not saying he's any more than a 6th defenseman in the NHL, but a 6th defenseman on the Detroit Red Wings is more than likely a pretty good NHLer. I wish this guy would get some time with Lidstrom. I think his footspeed would be a bigger benefit to our top defensive pair than Rafalski's outlet passes. Lidstrom already has the outlet pass part covered for his pairing, anyways. Perhaps a Lidstrom/Lebda, Rafalski/Ericsson, Stuart/Kronwall combo would be more effective? Regardless, I think Lebda deserves a little more credit than he gets.

The Turning Point

I believe that the Detroit Red Wings are in the most critical portion of this season. We've gone over the goods and bads of the players, the coaches, the fans, the referees, the commissioner, etc. But now we have started a stretch of games that will greatly determine the direction we head in as far as playoff seeding goes.

New York Rangers, 11th place, Win
St. Louis Blues, 13th place, ?
Anaheim Ducks, 15th place, ?
Nashville Predators, 7th place, ?
Phoenix Coyotes, 6th place, ?
Tampa Bay Lightning, 9th place, ?
Dallas Stars, 8th place, ?

6 more games against weak opponents before we run into the Chicago Blackhawks for a home and home. If the Wings win all of those games, they will be 20-10-5 and will more than likely leap-frog 3 teams into 6th place. I think all the naysayers will be silenced once that happens. I'm expecting a great 2 weeks out of the Wings. This is the turning point.
