Seriously, after having this happen to two of our guys, can the Wings brass make some sort of arm protection mandatory? The longer gloves, anything. Like Mickey keeps saying, I don't think the extra mobility you get from the shorter gloves is worth risking potentially season ending injuries over.
I doubt Helm will be back for the playoffs. Hope he has a quick recovery and can bounce back from this.
I don't think I'll ever get tired of hearing "Don't Stop Believin'" at the Joe. I've always associated the song with the Wings, everyone else is just ripping us off. Also, who cares about the whole "South Detroit" thing? He put it in because it sounds good in the song. Detroit has a south... it's the riverwalk, Ren Cen, etc... just deal with it and enjoy
The Shanahan Jig will forever be one of my favorite player-specific tunes.
Not a book, but I own this DVD and I think its a must have for a Red Wings fan. It has documentaries covering the 97,98, and 02 cup championships. It also has five complete games, ones that fans voted on as being the 5 greatest Red Wings games. I watch this during the summer to get my hockey fix while waiting for October
After reading that article this is just like the frequency cards you get at the grocery store and other stores too. They're offering discounts for wearing them to home games which is smart to get more of the home colors present during games. This really isn't more than what everyone else has already mentioned.
I agree, it really is just like the discount cards. Instead of scanning the cards, your chip is automagically read, which speeds up the whole process. While RFID chips can be used for evil, most of the time they have legitimate uses. The conspiracy theorists have just given them a bad name overall.
For starters, that isn't a suspendable hit. It's a scrum in front of the net where one player is taking extra liberties.
Second, Crosby at least had some reason to give cheap shots to Foligno. And they weren't even super cheap shots at that.
Third, Crosby is a cheap little *****. As soon as things get heated Kunitz is in to save the day. If you want Crosby to play sheriff, then let him fight his own battles.
Everything before the hit to the face was a scrum in front of the net. The head shot is exactly what the NHL said they're trying to "enforce," mostly because of what happened to their golden child. All I know is that if the situation was reversed, Foligno would have some mandatory time off.
