In Topic: Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

04 March 2011 - 01:31 PM

I am completely stumped as to how this team will do! Like others have said the consistency isn't there but that doesn't mean it wont be during the playoffs. Early this season this team looked dominant so who's to say that team won't show up during the playoffs?!? It will come down to turnovers/defense and goaltending. If it all comes together they will win. If any portion of that isn't up to par they won't get out of the second round.
My prediction is they pull it all together and beat the Bruins in the finals! If Crosby happens to come back Detroit will beat Pitt in a sweep in the finals!

In Topic: Draper the goal scorer

14 February 2011 - 03:37 PM

I think Draper has had a great year so far. That being said if I have to give up any younger players (doesn't matter who it is) to keep him next year I say no way and force him to take a 2 way deal or retire like they did with Maltby this year. You have to have the flexibility to send the guy down and not getting stuck with the contract since he's over 35. You also can't continually let young players walk to take a chance on an older guy who might have a year or 2 left in him.

In Topic: Open House 11/15

15 November 2010 - 02:57 PM

Tonight I will be going to the open house at the Joe. I have never been to one before so I was wanted any feedback from anybody that has attended. How much is parking? Have you been able to get everyone's autograph? What should I expect? I'm excited and nervous. Not sure why I'm nervous but it isn't everyday you meet your heroes. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I have been to 2 of these and was supposed to go tonight but the guy I was supposed to go with hasn't called me back so it doesn't look good. First thing you have to do if you are getting auto's is find the section you are in and go sit down (inside the Joe seats). Earlier you get there the better. You won't know who is signing in your section until they get there. If you get lucky you get one of the big 3 (Hank/Pavel or Lids). Go through the auto line and you will get 3 player auto's. After you are done you are free to go to what they call an overflow line for other auto's. Find the player you want and get in his line and you should be able to get at least 3 more. Depending on how close you are in the first line will depend on how many you can get. I ended up being in Datsyuk's line and quickly got in the Zetterberg overflow and got his also. Then I got into an overflow line with some of the lower end guys and ended up with 9 auto's all together. Wish I was going and good luck..:)

In Topic: Am I the only one that respects Gary Bettman?

22 September 2010 - 03:33 PM

If the NHl has shown a profit I guess I can't say Bettman is a horrible leader. Though I think to myself if there was a true hockey person in charge how well would the league be doing right now?? Over expansion and rule changes to the point where even the refs don't know what is and isn't a penalty these days make the game more confusing and frustrating to watch than ever before. Lack of getting the game visible on major networks is something you have to point the finger at him for also.
This game is the only sport I watch with a passion and I have to say Bettman has brought the game down in my eyes. The teams may be making money but the game itself isn't what it was before he took over. I pray for the day an actual person who is brilliant financially and loves the sport becomes commisioner. Then we can see how well this sport can do against the big 3 (NFL/NBA/MLB)

In Topic: Who do and did you hate more?

17 September 2010 - 12:26 PM

I'd have to say Blackhawks all the way. I hate losing them any time (regular season or playoffs). I'd have to say Ducks second and I don't really care about the Pens it's eastern conf. I'd put 10 teams in the west up before them.
