#2421034 Grand Rapids Griffins Win Calder Cup! 5-2 win in game 6

Posted by Rick D on 20 June 2013 - 12:24 PM

I know a lot of people were mentioning the Nyquist/Andersson/Dekeyser/Lashoff journey, but how about the journey of Petr Mrazek.  Watching him play it's tough to remember this is his first year pro.  Seems like last year he was playing those games in the ECHL not this year.  Dude had some unbelievable saves at the end of game 6.


He made a sequence of saves all right in a row with about 5:30- 6:00 left in the game. I said to myself, this kid might have just won the game for us.


I hope he can continue to improve, and keep getting good game time like he is. This guy is hopefully going to be awesome in the future for the Wings.

Pavel takes a minute during intermission to call Sam Bernstein, and see if he can file a copyright infringement lawsuit against Nyquist

"The people I do feel badly for in all of this are all of the hockey fans in Anaheim. Now that the rivalry is over and the Wings are moving back East, they'll only get to see their favorite team once every season."

If we keep calling the kids up, who is gonna be left in GR when I go see them in March?


This happened to me last year. I went to a game, and a bunch of the kids i wanted to see were up in Detroit. I had to watch Conklin get beat up by an AHL team.

I wish some of the guys on our team played with half of this enthusiasm.

#2336465 Who takes Hudler's shootout spot?

Posted by Rick D on 20 December 2012 - 01:45 PM

Hockey seems like such a distant memory that I can't recall, but was he used in the shootout much? or at all?

Because you're right, you'd think he'd be a candidate. Great shot, good hands.

After playing a whole game, and an overtime.
A long skate from center ice to the goal might be too much work for him.

So I was about to order a new Wings hat, mine are getting mangy, but instead, I ordered a Tigers hat. Take that NHL!


Take that Mike Ilitch!!!

#2310091 Red Wings make contract offer to D Justin Schultz

"Year after year"? That's a head-scratcher considering Kindl has only played one full season in the NHL.

Now I am totally convinced you have no clue what you are talking about. Obviously you didn't watch him since you think he's played "year after year" in the NHL, but he had a month stretch during injuries where he was an absolute beast. Not bad for his first full season in the NHL.


Wasnt this last season the 2nd season where Kindl had an oppertunity to be in the line-up, but couldnt make it??

I seem to remember him compeating with Salei the season before.

#2308837 Trade Ian White?

Posted by Rick D on 22 June 2012 - 04:05 PM

The guy played on out top pairing last year,

We just lost two of our top four,

And he blocks shots with his face.

I wouldnt be up for trading that away right now.
