Wait wait wait... First game in the Penguins new arena isn't going to be televised? You mean the NHL hates the Red Wings so much that it cancels out their love for Crosby? Hahaha! Just kidding...but seriously.

I want big Bert to start using his size but I'm not sure if that will ever happen. Also, I'd like to see him use two hands on the stick more often. He tries to make pretty plays/goals but he should just be concerned about getting goals at all. I never understood why so many Wings fans hate him. I'm excited to see him and Mule and Flip play together. Mule and Bert could make some magical things happen if they play like they did in game 4 against San Jose.
I get what youre saying but I will be the first one to say...yes he can kill some penalties and block some shots. But there are soooo many times that I would watch Lilja, and E for that matter, and just laugh/scream/shake my head. I DO NOT GET THE LILJA LOVE. Ive heard from other players that hes a great guy....he probably is. But as far as out on the ice, Im a Lebda supporter before Lilja. it doesnt matter anymore since they're both gone.
lets not be so quick to throw him under the bus --- I threw him under almost 2+ years ago long before the concussion. i just didnt see what was so big about him.
My ideal situation would be for Howard to start 55 games, Ozzie 27. However, none of this 20+ consecutive starts for Howard so that when Ozzie does finally get a game, he's so rusty that he lets in a goal to an enforcer 14 seconds into the game.
This. Poor Osgood was hung out to dry. Being a goalie in Detroit has to be the worst job on the team. Most everyone either blames you for losses, or loves you when you win.
Well I went to this mexican restaurant with my uncle a few years ago only to find several small brown rocks spread throughout in his entire meal. We complained to the waitress and the manager came and made our meals free (we didnt want any more after that). Leaving the place we look over next to the building to see around the trees and such were the same exact brown rocks. How they made it to his food, we will never know. Horrific right?
Where is this restaurant? I eat rocks mixed with nails for breakfast all the time, and I hate to go through all the trouble of preparing it myself.
Hey, I will probably post this again when it's closer to the start of the season, but I am moving to Germany for a minimum of one year on September 29th. I will miss the whole 2010-2011 season. It's heartbreaking, I know. My question to everyone is how can I keep up with the team? I never done preseason games and I can catch a few in September, are they worth going to help the ease of the separation anxiety? Also, I was thinking of buying a small NHL package (maybe watch a few live games but mostly day old games), however, I have a MLB premium and I hate it. I'm always on blackout and it's pricey. I barely made it through the blackout in 2004-- hopefully Germany will keep me entertained but with results of the past season, I feel ripped. Any other ideas?
If you have a decent internet connection in Germany you can watch most games online live for free from different places. I live in Indianapolis and I had to watch almost every game online, besides the games I actually went to in Detroit.
Other than that, if you have a cell phone you can always get text message updates from Red Wings twitter. For every home game they text you when anyone scores a goal and they tell you the final score.
Not exactly sure how I feel about that but right now that doesn't make me feel particularly good.
The only reason I can see him laughing about it is that everyone probably asks him about whether he's coming back for another year or not all of the time.
If you go everywhere and everyone asks you the same question over and over you would just laugh about it to be polite, too.
I really hope he comes back for one more season, but if he doesn't I really hope he sticks around Michigan for at least enough time to come out on the ice the first home game to hear the loudest crowd ever tell him thanks by cheering their hearts out. I'll be there if this happens and I can guarantee I will have no voice left for a week.
