#2505273 4/2 GDT - Bruins 2 at Red Wings 3

That was a huge statement game for the kids, but no way we have a chance to pull it off in the end without Howard, he was huge when he needed to be.

#2496203 Beard Time

Posted by McAwesome on 17 March 2014 - 01:34 PM

Last time the Wings were outside looking in at this point in the season, I started growing a beard and we jumped from 10th to 4th, so I'm down for trying it again. Unshaven Wings fans unite!

After that classy ceremony this team better come out on fire.

Amen brother, anything less would be a massive letdown.

Number one rule for ANY Wings game in ANY venue is scream LETS GO RED WINGS as loud as you possibly can.  If you have a voice at the end of the night, you did it wrong!  Have fun and Go Wings!


This. Last game I went to at the Forum, it was about 60/40 Wings fans, the Let's Go Red Wings chants drowned out whatever the Bolts fans were trying to chant  :shout:

#2478657 Visiting Tampa Bay Times Forum--Tips?

Posted by McAwesome on 29 January 2014 - 03:32 AM

Hi all,


I'm thinking of going to the game vs the Lightning on 2/8/14 but have never been to the Forum and had a few questions for any of you who may have been there:


1.) From Lightning fans I hear there is no bad seat, but any suggestions?

2.) Can fans go near ice level to watch the warm ups even if their seat is not down there (like at the Joe)?

3.) Any suggestions for parking?

4.) Do you know where the Red Wings stay and is there a spot to catch them for autographs near the arena?

5.) Any other suggestions for my visit?


Thanks in advance!

If you decide to go, I'll see you there, as will about 10,000 other Wings fans, many of whom I'm sure lurk about these boards.


1) I've been to several games at the Forum, you heard correctly, there are no bad seats. I'm too cheap to try to get lower-bowl seats, but every section I've sat in at the terrace level has had great sight lines.


2) They check tickets before you can go down the steps for the lower bowl, so unless your tickets are in the 100's I'd guess probably no ice level for warmups.


3) Expect to pay about $10, plenty of places to park within 15 minutes walking distance from the arena, well lit streets with plenty of police presence, locals are pretty friendly towards visiting fans, never had a single issue.


4) Don't know, but closest hotels are Marriott Waterside, Embassy Suites Downtown Convention Center, and Westin Harbor Island, probably one of them.


5) The Channel District has lots of decent restaurants, can't speak to the bars/nightlife since I don't drink, but check out the these links for more info


Hope to see you (and a healthier Red Wings lineup) there, I'm in section 322, I'll be wearing my black Wings sweater, my very pregnant wife will be wearing a red Yzerman sweater, and my son will be wearing the road white

Lineups tonight per Khan:



Jimmy Howard

Cleary needs to be riding the pine, but if he's gonna be in this lineup he should be on the 4th line, and please for the love of Pete don't put Smith and Quincey back together:

Just came here to say that our bottom six needs a lot less Cleary and Samuelsson and a LOT more Tatar, Nyquist, and TooToo.


Oh, and Go Wings!

Im all for fast, young guys that hit and play good D.

#2439202 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

Posted by McAwesome on 26 September 2013 - 06:47 PM

I'm Pro-Bertuzzi all the way, I highly doubt he is even considering retirement at this point. I say keep him in the bottom-six rotation, let him sit every 3rd game or so unless injuries necessitate him being in the lineup every day. We need to have a guy his size that is willing to stand up for teammates if they get run. Also, I'd like to see what he could teach a guy like Sheahan, big body with slick hands, if he could pick up some pointers from Bert he'd be on his way to becoming a legit power forward.

#2429664 Captain vacancies

Posted by McAwesome on 11 July 2013 - 10:04 PM

NY Islanders - Tavares, no-brainer

Dallas - Benn, also a no-brainer

Ottawa - Karlsson would be my pick, but wouldn't be surprised if it is Spezza

Buffalo - Ville Leino  :ninja: (j/k probably Stafford or Ehrhoff)

Columbus - JMFJ or Dubinsky

Calgary - Giordano

Tampa - St. Louis, with Stamkos being the obvious successor when Marty retires

Edmonton - Eberle
