#2675604 Doug Houda hired as an assistant coach

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 May 2016 - 12:27 PM

God damn Pierre has to be just pissed. Won't know who's who on that bench.

 

I can't wait.  Apparently, the new rule is an all-bald coaching staff? :lol:


For the other assistant role:

 

 

"They are expected to talk to Todd Richards when he returns from the World Championship, where he is the head coach for Team USA."

Semi-hairless.... OK, then

#2674975 Kris Letang Facing NHL suspension hearing.

Posted by puckloo39 on 03 May 2016 - 12:02 PM

Pens fans are claiming it's all because he's a Penguin and the league hates the team.  Seriously?  Who do they think they are?  Red Wings fans?  LOL~~




#2674945 Calder finalists

You all beat me to it, but Larkin wasn't a candidate because he's not the #1 draft pick and the NHL wants McDavid to win.  That's about all there is to that story. 




#2674737 Official - Little Caesars Arena

Posted by puckloo39 on 01 May 2016 - 10:23 AM

My two-cents, for what it's worth:  yes, the very wealthy Illitch family can name "their" arena anything they want.  It's what weathy people do, a lot.  They name big garish buildings after themselves, in spite of the fact that the big fancy building was built on the backs of tons of lower caste people who dedicated their working lives to creating that funds that made the big fancy building possible.

 

Do I think they care for the franchise and the players as people -- yes, I do believe that.  I've seen the family treat players like their own family plenty of times when things got rough for a player. 

 

This is a two-edged sword.  Without the fans buying pizza (never had it, but hear it's bad, or good, depending on who you ask),  and fans to pay a LOT for game tickets for decades on end -- the Illitches would not be quite so wealthy.  That said, I believe the fans and people of Detroit should have a vote in what the new arena is called.  Or, at the very least, have the right to protest if they think the new name is stupid.

 

Personally, I would have really liked to see the new arena named Gordie Howe Arena.   It would have been respectful, very fitting and I suspect NO ONE would have said anything other than -- well done!!  Honor the franchise which contributed heavily to the wealth -- pizza was part of it... not all of the story.  

 

I would have been so proud to say "I've been to The Gordie," to see my Wings.  Now, I will just say, glad I got to see the new Red Wings Arena.  That's what it will be called in my feeble little fan brain.

Arena! Arena!

 

I wanted it to be Gordie Howe Center, so we could all go to The Gordie for games... oh well

 

 

 




#2673985 Dan Boyle Curses Out Reporters

Posted by puckloo39 on 27 April 2016 - 08:20 AM

I wouldn't mind an little more emotion from the Wings. Dan Cleary was the last guy in the room who would stare down a question and deal with it.  Shanny before him.  Soft questions from reporters make for boring, mumbling, cookie-cutter interviews - the hallmark of an NHL post-game locker room media scrum.

 

I don't actually blame Boyle for getting irritated, in this case.

watch Donuts end up in Detroit.  God help us, but he wouldn't put up with locker room laziness... Wings will have to learn how to be thugs, though.  Blues have to find their game and stop the Horks.  Please.
