Marc McNulty's team did not qualify for the playoffs. 

 

I could not find any QJMHL prospects.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Red Wings have 5 players with at least 20 goals

24 March 2015 - 08:30 AM

Most in the NHL. But who would have guessed the list would be Tater (26), Datsyuk (23), Nyquist(22), Cole (21), Abdlekader (20) 

 

If you asked me at the start of the season I would have said:

Datsyuk

Zetterberg

Franzen

Tatar

Nyquist

 

 


Positive feel good thread

20 March 2015 - 10:19 AM

With all the feel good stories that happen (Tootoo's Stick giveaway).I would like to start a thread of feel good NHL stories... Please leave out negativity. If you have an objection, no judgements just move along.

 

Please add your positive thoughts and stories.

 

I would like to start with the letter to Carey Price about the Selfie.

 

Story: Link

 

 

To my hero Carey Price,

I have always regarded you as one of my heroes, but it was only yesterday that I started to think long about what a hero means to me.

A hero is someone who you not only admire for their outstanding achievements, but also for their kindness.

You, Mr. Price, do both.

Our family travelled to New York City for Saturday night’s game. I tried to take a selfie with you. You noticed me and gave me the memory of a lifetime. You looked and asked me for my selfie in the middle of an intense game and I wanted to say thank you.

Thank you for being the generous person I have always believed that you were.

Who would have thought that the selfie would be captured by a cameraman during the break and make the headlines? But it happened!

The story went viral and since then we have been contacted by several radio stations and sports television stations for interviews.

This story is not really about me. I am not different from the other millions of fans. This story is about you, and proof that a true hero is not measured in the greatness of his strength, but the strength of his heart.

Carey, the truth is that you were my hero before Saturday night and now it may well be that you become a hero and an inspiration to many other fans who often need to believe in the power of a single moment. A unique moment that I will replay in my head and possibly play again in the heads of every young fan who has the feeling of being part of a selfie.

Because it could have been anyone else posing with you.

This is perhaps my selfie, but this has nothing to do with me.

So, Mr. Price, thank you for proving that your skills on the ice are secondary to your kindness!

You gave me a memory that will last a lifetime and there is nothing more generous to a young hockey fan like me.

Sincerely,

Justin

 


Tyler Bertuzzi vs Jake Patterson

13 March 2015 - 10:41 PM

I just got home from watching Jake Patterson stop 45 of 48 shots to help the Kitchener Rangers beat Little Berts 1 goal and 1 assist for the Guelph Storm 5-3.

 

Guelph and Kitchener are hated rivals. Usually a ton of fights and mega penalty minutes. This game was no exception. Only 3 fights but 56 minutes in penalties.The biggest difference between  2 years ago and now, Little Bert was involved in most of the penalties and started the fights and he was a little lightning bug being a pest. Maybe maturity maybe the injuries caught up or both but now he is a more complete player. He stayed out of all the scrums and hardly hit anyone. It was also clear that Guelph was a 1 line team, at least tonight. If Bertuzzi's line came off, it was not off for long and he also played most of the PK and PP minutes. I think Bertuzzi fired at least a dozen or more shot attempts had some bad puck luck with a couple posts and fan on a empty net.

 

Jake was the number one star and for good reason, he saw a lot of rubber and a lot were good scoring opportunities. He works the lower net really well and was quick with little rebounds. He made 4 or 5 highlight reel saves stoneing what seemed to be for sure goals.

 

Best part of the game is I got to take my daughter to her first OHL hockey game. It was a late night, but she enjoyed it. She asked me on the ride home when can she come with me to watch a Red Wings Game. I think it will be sooner then later.
