#2550205 11/20 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Jets 3

Posted by puckloo39 on 20 November 2014 - 01:42 PM

I was hoping Datsyuk would play this season.  So sad that he cannot stay healthy for more than a game or two at a time. 

 

Battle of the Czech-Goalies.  Whee!   Wings will prevail in this one, I do believe.  LGRW!!

You fail to understand? With all due respect, this is a FOOTBALL COUNTRY. You can put "Hockeytown" in the middle of the ice but people care more about the Lions in this town than they do hockey. And that's just the truth.

 

I live in Texas.  I know all about football freaks, Heaven help me, they're lunatics for football here... and pretend to know nothing of hockey.  This, despite the FACT that the current Calder Cup winning team sells out every single game here in Austin.  It's all about the money, and which franchise gets the tv dollars flowing, etc.

 

If I lived in or near Detroit, I would certainly have season tix to the Wings.  But I guess having such a great franchise right under their noses makes some locals complacent.  Very lucky to live near enough to attend...

Football sucks.. Red Wings hockey game is billions of times better.  Original Six match up, to boot... I fail to understand this situation.

I hope Cleary gets a hat trick... mostly because I want to see the Wings score more than one goal...

Very nice spooky GDT, Mikey!   Boo!   Hope the Wings are a treat and trick the Kings... and the Kings don't get ANY goodies at all. 

 

LGW!!!

Crosby was pretty much invisible, Wings stuck with it and got it done.  Most enjoyable heart-attack I've endured in some time.

 

It's why we watch hockey!  Love these Wings!  :wub:

@Bill_Roose: #RedWings Nyquist lost a top front tooth last night on play in front of #Canadiens net. Says it put a hole in his mouth guard.

 

No retaliation, no call.  Nice.  Not.

Well, when you only score one or two goals a game this is what you get. I think they've looked decent so far this year, but they have GOT to start scoring more. Then we won't have to worry about bulls*** waving off of goals or uncalled penalties or what the f*** ever.

 

I have been saying for several years, the Wings must score 30% more goals than any other team in order to win a game, since so many of their perfectly good goals are disallowed... and the refs make sure the ice tilts in the direction of whatever team the Wings are playing.

 

Must find offense, somehow.  Jimmy was spectacular tonight... D was adequate.  Wings must become over-achievers and soon, if they expect to succeed.

Wings "won" as far as I am concerned.  Glad I am not a fan of a team that has to cheat to get an extra point.  Go, Wings!!!

I can't say much more about Dom, except that he deserves every kudo he receives.  He'll be happy to see the Wings again, as well. 

 

Wish I could be there.  :wub:

Beautiful GDT, Mike!   I love the throwback... very sweet!   Go, Wings!!




#2539154 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

Posted by puckloo39 on 08 October 2014 - 10:01 PM

Thanks for the GDT, Mikey!  Hope the Bruins are all tired out with travel and back to back games.  So excited to see my Wings again, it's been a long, nasty summer of no ice and men.  Go, Wings!!!




#2534765 Sharks enter training camp with no C or A's

Posted by puckloo39 on 22 August 2014 - 08:02 AM

 

IMO, and this is coming from a spoiled Red Wing standpoint, once you give a guy a C you mark him as that for his career. You don't take it back and you don't trade him (Unless things go horribly wrong you're the Dallas Stars).

 

;)

 

Sharks post-season is always a disappointing spectacle... perhaps they thought they would start out the year in chaos, and reverse psychology would kick in?
