#2576746 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 01 March 2015 - 07:44 PM

Not excited about this trade- I don't see Cole making a big difference moving forward.

#2574932 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 26 February 2015 - 09:03 AM

I'm apalled that there is no discipline by NHL.  Aren't they already being sued by ex players for concussion issues and head injuries?  This kind is not even 'hockey play' and need to seriously get this sh*t out of the game.  

That type of play seems to happen every game. The outcome here is unfortunate, but I don't think there is any/much precedent for suspension.

"Overreacting" is an interesting choice of words to use while defending a guy who was yelling, screaming, breaking glass because the refs at a midget hockey game screwed up a penalty call. 


Lets put it this way, if you find yourself getting angry over a midget hockey game...you're a douchebag. 

The wheels were off the bus...how is someone expected to react when the wheels are off the bus?

Lucic seems to have toned down his game lately. I think he will try to do something tonight against the Habs to save face.


I hope to see a shift like this from him tonight.

What a shift by Abby- he's having a very energetic game.

Great hit by Smith.

I think Abby gets the first goal- Dats will use him as a human deflection.

Glad to be listening to Mickey again.

#2540490 NHL Gamecenter Live **No illegal stream discussion**

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 13 October 2014 - 01:44 PM

The NHL controls broadcast rights, not the teams.  I'm sure the Yotes and Preds owners don't want the Leafs and Wings making money they can't dip their paws into, or worse, stream the games free on the Wings site so no one makes any cash.

And the NHL has relatively reasonable prices. The AHL and WHL charge $300+ for a full season.


I would like to see the NHL negotiate the next TV contract to give them the ability to offer a no-blackout service to fans.

#2540488 Coach's video challenge

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 13 October 2014 - 01:40 PM

I voted no.


I think all goals should be reviewed, and the puck over the glass penalty should go away. Borderline penalties are too common/debatable to be reviewed IMO.

#2540309 TSN Radio - McKenzie: Enforcers in the NHL

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 12 October 2014 - 11:44 AM

A few fights last night from non-enforcers. These are the types of fights I like- two players are settling a disagreement themselves.

Miller-Glendening-Callahan could be a great fourth line.

#2536235 2014 Prospects Tournament and Training Camp (Sept. 12-23)

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 15 September 2014 - 04:18 PM

I just got back from my trip to Traverse City and other parts of Michigan. I was able to catch the Prospects Tournament on Friday, but I didn't go on Saturday due to other plans (I got engaged). I strongly recommend attending the tournament. We planned our trip around seeing the Wings, and the game was one of the best parts of the trip. Below are some short impressions from the game. The play was a little sloppy- most of the players haven't played together- and players who hustled and were hard on the puck were most noticeable.


Mantha- Had two excellent goals. The first was a nice snipe, and the second was batted in from mid air. He seemed very composed, made few mistakes, and controlled the play well. He was the Wings' best forward, and I'm excited to see him in preseason. From what I saw he didn't look NHL ready, but he was also playing with new teammates.


Athanasiou- Dangerous. He has great speed and an excellent shot, and was exciting each time he touched the puck. He played a little recklessly, and was hit hard a few times throughout the game. The raw talent is there, and I am excited to see how he can put his shot, speed, and tenacity together. IMO he was more exciting to watch than Mantha.


Frk- Fast, hustles, and has a great work ethic. I am hoping he can continue to improve in GR this season.


Turgeon- Always seemed to be in the right place to make a play, offensively and defensively. We always noted his hustle and energy. I wasn't a big fan of the pick originally, but I am now convinced.


Bert- Much smaller than I expected, both in size and how he plays the game. He made a few bad plays, but managed to assist on the last goal in regulation. IMO he needs to get stronger to be a physical player at the NHL/AHL level. I expected a better game from him- hopefully I caught him on an off night.


Sproul- Solid play and a great shot to send the game to OT. I expected him to be the Wings' best D, and he was by far.


Hicketts- I was impressed. Solid play and scored the GWG in OT. Was very smart with the puck, always seemed to be in the right position, and made a few good checks. His size didn't seem to be an issue in the game, but will likely hinder him getting an NHL contract. IMO if he were 2-3 inches taller, the Wings would/should sign him.


Nedomlel- Formed a solid pairing with Hicketts. Used his size well and was positionally sound. He didn't hesitate to challenge a Blues player to a fight that boarded Athanasiou. I think he has the ability to be a McQuaid type player.


McNulty- Has all of the tools, but needs a lot of improvement. He had some great offensive rushes, and was able to use his size to physically dominate play in the corners and in front of the net. He made some bad decisions, and was benched in OT along with Wheaton.


Babcock- Scowling as usual, but I saw him smile during the first intermission.


Chelios- Looks like he's in shape and ready to play.
