#2042836 10/8 GDT: Ducks 0 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Kira on 08 October 2010 - 11:47 PM

Since we both lost on who would score the first goal (I said Pasha, my friend said Henrik), we're going out for dinner - Dutch treat for Chinese food. A Win-win in my book. :)

I am hoping it's Pasha who scores the first goal. I have a bet going on it. No money involved, but dinner is. The loser of the bet has to cook dinner for the winner. The other party is betting on Henrik.

Watch, we'll both be wrong and it will be someone like Cleary or Bertuzzi. Then we go dutch out to eat. :lol:

#2038518 Wings release Aaron Downey

Posted by Kira on 30 September 2010 - 11:43 AM

Aaron came to camp with a great attitude and worked hard. But one twist of fate and it's all for naught.

It was great to see you again, Aaron, and thanks for the hugs. :) Good luck and good journeys.

It's a wise soul who knows their limitations and learns to accept and go on. I wish him nothing but good. I got to meet him at camp a couple years ago. Really nice kid. Good luck and good journeys, Ryan.

#2037871 That Datsyuk is a pretty cool guy...

I can think of some "stars" in this league who could take a few lessons in humility from Pasha.

I don't think there are very many players who can make Pasha look bad.

Give me Pasha and Henrik seven days a week and three times on Sunday.

Very good day here too.

Nick, Jim Howard, Ozzie, Patrick Eaves and Justin Abdelkader all fell in love with my dog Loki. Howie was even feeding him biscuits! :lol:

Pasha said hello to me (made my day!), I got to give Aaron Downey a big hug (actually two of them), and I finally got a picture with Jiri Fischer.


Look under Red Wings camp 2010

More photos tomorrow. :)

#2033754 Lilja gets training camp invitation to Sharks

Damn, I'm gonna miss that man. One of the nicest people I ever met. Good luck and good journeys, Andreas. Some of us will still have a soft spot for you.

#2029928 New numbers for a couple of Wings

Posted by Kira on 28 August 2010 - 10:43 AM

Let's hope that Tomas Tatar wears #21 better than its previous owner.

#2024630 Wings sign Ruslan Salei

Posted by Kira on 09 August 2010 - 08:42 PM

Not a fan of this. Would have way rather seen Lilja back, especially after he fought so hard to recover from his injury. Salei hasn't played a full season since 2006 :o, and frankly is just too old. Whats the average age of our defensive core now, 37?


I'm with you on this one. I'm not sure this is an improvement. At least with Andreas, we knew pretty much what we were getting and what we had. This is an unknown quantity, injury wise and otherise. I'm kinda scratching my head on this one.

Meantime, I'm gonna miss Lils...he was always a hard worker, good attitude, worked hard to make his way back, and he gets kicked to the curb. Wherever he lands, I wish him nothing but good fortune, and good journeys.

#2023824 Would You Buy A Modano Jersey?

Posted by Kira on 07 August 2010 - 09:44 PM

There is not a word in the English language to describe all the levels of no in response to this question.

Nor is there a word in any other language that could do that.

#2022842 Mike Modano signs with Detroit

Posted by Kira on 05 August 2010 - 03:30 PM

I'm not convinced. Why don't I want him? He doesn't strike me as the type who will be willing to drop his ego at the door, he is in it for the money only, and I just don't like his attitude. The world does not revolve around him. Now if you think you can convince me otherwise, good luck. I'm gonna be extremely critical of him. I want to see him sacrificing his body out there every shift, every night. Block shots, hit people who get in his way, fight for his teammates...everything. Leave your ass out on that ice every night - then I might be convinced. But don't bet on it.

#2022825 Mike Modano signs with Detroit

Posted by Kira on 05 August 2010 - 02:46 PM

Modano to wear either #89 or 90

"Also of extremely important note: Modano says that he has not ruled out playing for the Red Wings for more than one season".
