In Topic: Heading to JLA for the first time ever for Game 3 - few questions

14 May 2013 - 12:01 PM

Well we aren't staying the night and will be heading back to at least Lansing right after the game but most likely right back to Chicago so I can get to work in the morning.

As far as Chicago fans, I work currently at the UC and other than the occasional Detroit Sucks chant that's the extent I've seen but I'm not inside the actual bowl so it could be different inside. I don't expect it to be that bad but you never can be too cautious with new surroundings. Obviously I won't be chirping back/standing up and cheering like an idiot but I hope people don't mind seeing the back of my Kane jersey :). The most of my heckling will be with my girlfriend who will be wearing her Datsyuk jersey


I predict you are going to catch some heat for the Kane jersey. If you've got the option to switch to a Toews jersey, do it! Kane is not well liked (I think that's an understatement).

TV Listings I am looking at (for Charter cable) show the game being broadcast on FSD where I always watch. Go WIngs!!!!

In Topic: Kronwall and Rig on the wing?

Put Kronner with Toots and Abby, then they can just hit/destroy anyone that dares to get anywhere near the puck. By the end of the first period, the other team will be running out of healthy bodies to put on the ice.

In Topic: Six outdoor games in 2014 for NHL

18 April 2013 - 07:19 AM

If the NHL is going to have more than one or two outdoor games a year, they should get serious about doing it right. Have 5 games a year (maybe New Years Day, then every Saturday night in January) and rotate the teams and venues so that each team plays outdoors once every 3 years, and each team gets an outdoor home game once every 6 years. Or (gulp) do 10 games each year so each team gets 2 every 3 years and a home outdoor game once every 3 years. Watching your favorite teams outdoors on TV would still be noteworthy events, and a chance to attend an outdoor home game only once every 3 or 6 years would still be a special opportunity. If I knew every Saturday night during the core winter months of hockey season I could tune in and watch an outdoor game (the only one either of those teams will play that year, and the only time at that venue for 3 to 6 years - or ever, if a city moves their outdoor venue around) -- That would be cool.

In Topic: Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

25 March 2013 - 10:43 AM

I would rather pay Iginla 5+ for a couple years then pay Fil the same amount. Fil, Nyquist and a couple conditional picks depending if he re ups. We need a goal scorer Fil can be replaced from within. (Tatar)

I'm a big Flip fan, but if we had good reason to believe Iginla would re-sign with the Wings for 2+ yrs, I think this is a good trade.
