#2578042 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by puckloo39 on 03 March 2015 - 05:28 PM

Good thing Cole speaks English, so he could tell Z that Benn said "sorry, man". Benn apparently was unable to form that thought into a sentence to tell Z himself.

 

Cole just looks like a good ol' hockey dude.  I think I like him.  ^_^




#2577085 Nashville Predators to Host Alumni Game vs. Detroit Red Wings

Posted by puckloo39 on 01 March 2015 - 11:36 PM

Eddie Mio was in net, and he was hilarious.  He would dive to make a save.  Two or three players would have to go help him get up. :)

 

The entire thing was hilarious, but it was meant to be.  Mickey Redmond looked AWESOME, as he always does,  the Professor was fantastic, Jiri Fischer looked great... they all smiled the entire game, except for Petr Klima - who just looked determined.  He was also wonderful.  Vokoun was great, but then again, we have to remember that most of the Preds 'alumni' have been retired a few years, not 20 or more, like the real veteran Wings.

 

Stu Grimson was the un-official M.C., anointing Tim Taylor - former Red Wing - as Game MVP, for doing... pretty much absolutely nothing.  LOL~  All in good fun, poor Tim got a shaving cream pie in the face as his MVP award.  Asked how it felt he said, "that doesn't even taste good." 

 

After the great game we had just seen, Wings winning over the Preds 4-3 (yesss!!!!! it was sweet!!!), the pace of the Alumni Game was much slower, but very entertaining.  It was so much fun to see the guys out there, having a blast.  The arena was a third full, which probably wouldn't have happened if this was in Detroit.  Preds fans were a bit miffed that the Wings won, perhaps?  ^_^

 

Here are a few pics, sorry they are a bit fuzzy.  It was hard to get good shots on my phone.

 

You know this guy!  Igor Larionov.  He looked great out there!

and this amazing man, Mickey Redmond.  He, along with a lot of true veterans, skated without lids...

Again, so sorry it's fuzzy.... Mickey and John Ogrodnick at far right, front row.  Igor and Fisch, behind him, on the left

 

And I have to show you what I got to finally see in person:

Me on the left, and my dear friend Kristi (ChelisChick) on the right.  Stanley in the middle.  :wub:

 

This was a thrill, let me tell you!

 

Wish you ALL had been there for the fun.

a shot on goal might be a good start, eh?

I love the late game starts, since I usually miss part of the first - or have to drive like a fool to get home in time - for the eastern time starts.  I don't mind staying up late.  I just hope the Wings stay awake for 60 minutes tonight.  It's not like their road trip is going to get easier.  The Ducks game was very winnable.  :confused:

 

Thanks for the GDT, Mikey!!!

slow this down, and get back to business, Wings.  The Curse of Emu Salami on the jumbotron need not de-rail this very very good effort.

Glendening is the new Maltby/Draper.  Love this kid...

I was wondering today who would step up and how the Wings would deal with Hank being out.  I know now, they are supporting each other beautifully - and Datsyuk is an amazing, amazing player.

 

LGRW!!

Am I the only one who wants to see athanasiou this year?

 

No, but you're the only one who can spell his name. ;)




#2573546 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Benn should lose the "C" - he's no leader.  Z is a leader and true Captain.




#2573535 2/21 GDT : Red Wings 7 at Dallas Stars 6 (OT)

Posted by puckloo39 on 22 February 2015 - 11:24 AM

It bothers me that we never "lobby" effectively when other teams complain about officiating. 

 

In the 2nd period significant contact was made with Jimmy Howard on two of Dallas's goals.  We don't complain at all about it...not one little complaint.

 

"There's no explanation. It's inexcusable. It ruined a hell of a hockey game, bottom line," he said.

 

Never mind the fact that the play occurs with 2 minutes left, we could have scored without the push or later in the period. The whole game was not decided on that one play.  

 

In this case, I guess we have to remember that in 1999, Lindy Ruff was the coach of the team victimized by the worst no-goal call in the history of modern hockey, so he may be a little sensitive.  ;)




#2573533 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by puckloo39 on 22 February 2015 - 11:15 AM

Benn should be suspended for at least 5 games.  He's the 'example' and leader as Stars' Captain.  Zetterberg is a CAPTAIN and acts like it. 

 

In my opinion, Benn should lose the "C" on his sweater for this.  But it's the NHL, and only my opinion.  So that won't happen.

 

Hope Z is OK, and we can move on, for sure.


 

I was talking in general. Him having a concussion is'nt something I think is good. I just like not having him in the lineup, for reasons that have been beat to death on these boards.

 

It's OK.  I knew what you meant. I expect most here did.  Z is more 'valuable' in terms of heart and leadership, not that Mule isn't great to have on the ice, if and when he's able.
