#2495512 U.S.A. vs Russia - Gold Medal Game - Sled Hockey

Posted by puckloo39 on 15 March 2014 - 08:05 PM

I watched this at the gym this morning, mesmerized by the skill and raw courage and strength of all of these guys.  They're all amazing.  What a great game!


I had people in the gym who do not watch NHL hockey stopping to watch and cheer...  Of course, I was sporting my Red Wings gear.  :cheesy:

I think 2 games is excessive, I would have been fine with a 5 minute major and a game mis-conduct last night.


that might have helped the Wings during the actual game, so... no.  This suspension is meaningless and won't stop other teams from targeting what is left of the Wings' roster on the ice.

#2494275 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

The graph previously posted shows the number of trades tirades has nothing to do with success or winning Cups. You've got winners all along that spectrum.


we have more than enough of one, but apparently not enough of the other.   ;)


I wish there had been a quality D man out there, but there wasn't.  Kenny did fine by picking up Legwand, who is hopefully less breakable than some of our current forwards.

#2494167 Scary incident with Rich Peverley

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 March 2014 - 09:59 PM

That video made me tear up.. the looks on the Stars' faces was so sad - they didn't know if he was alive or OK.  Good on the officials for postponing the game.  Hoping for a good outcome for Rich. 

#2493464 3/9 GDT: Red Wings at Rangers

I hate these early games. And I hate nbc's need to make every game have a storyline. And I hate hockey.


You could be me and have a bad haircut, on top of it all.

true, they are slobbering on St. Louis and King Henrick.  And discussing how pathetic the Wings are.  Which is actually true, considering.


edit:  now they're being nice and saying how good Mule is.  Quit jinxing him!  LOL~

#2491694 3/6 GDT: Avs 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) Sorry Nick.

Posted by puckloo39 on 06 March 2014 - 01:35 PM

Count me in, BoS.  I cried over the GDT.  Beautiful job, Mikey... :wub:


I am sure the ceremony will be awesome, and beyond well-deserved.  I adored Nick as did we all, and miss him every single game.  I do hope we don't suffer the dreaded pre-game ceremony curse and consequently suck tonight.  I am hoping the guys will be anxious to not poop on Nick's special night, and win this one for the Perfect Human.

Pretty much all hockey players have the same lines.  "We just have to play our game..."  Ozzie was far more eloquent and funny as a player because there was no pressure to be coherent in interviews.  Now he's on the hot seat to make cogent observations and be informative.  Much harder than it looks, no doubt.


Ozzie will be OK.  But he will never, ever be another Mickey Redmond. 


Nor will anyone else, to be fair.  ;)

#2485454 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by puckloo39 on 20 February 2014 - 01:36 PM

I would say yes, he gets a medal.  The back up goalie got one for the Czechs in 1998, and never even sniffed the ice for one second during the entire tournament.  I think if you're on the team, you get a medal.

Between the crappy beds in the Olympic village, to sitting on how many flights, I can see why his back flared up.

What about Dats? Not on the plane?



per Malik, Dats is taking a few days to visit folks in Russia -- probably his daughter who lives with her mom in Ekaterinaburg.

#2485149 Call ups.. Sheahan, Emmerton, Pulkkinen and Almquist

Posted by puckloo39 on 19 February 2014 - 01:21 PM

I saw Pulkkinen play last month here (TX Stars v Griffins) and he is quite impressive.  My newest favorite Finn.  


Almquist was penalty magnet, but promptly would make up for it next shift.  I love Sheahan, but Emmerton... sorry, not so much.

#2483718 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by puckloo39 on 13 February 2014 - 08:41 PM

Well, I am not going to speculate, Z knows what he can do, and what he can't with that back.  But this makes me sad for him.  He was having a blast.  I feel so bad that he's hurt and can't play for his country. 


Just hope he can recover and come back for us, soon - love the guy and he makes such a huge difference for the Wings.  


 Feel better, Hank.  :wub:

#2482256 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by puckloo39 on 07 February 2014 - 09:18 AM

Gus Gus is a class act, did his time in GR without a peep, honed his skills and now... he's found his niche with the best team in the NHL.  I couldn't be more proud.  :wub:

#2481645 2/6 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Panthers 1

Posted by puckloo39 on 06 February 2014 - 08:52 AM

We could use a win, boyz... just do this, ok?   Seeing Datsyuk's name in the line up rather than still injured brings a tear to mine eye, Rahmani.  Go, Wings!!!

#2481234 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

Posted by puckloo39 on 04 February 2014 - 01:47 PM


This. Sometimes fans get a little bit too greedy. I'm just happy he's around another 3 years.


I agree, and I am a typical fan.  I think.  I want Pasha to come back strong for us, and also to dominate in the Sochi games.  I want both of those things for him.  And I totally agree, we're SO fortunate to have him and Z and Kronner all on the Wings roster.

Bring this guy back, and yes! to that slogan!  Happy birthday, Toots!
