#2465606 Petr Mrazek Christmas Spririt

Posted by darkmanx on 17 December 2013 - 07:15 PM

Weve seen plenty of creative masks for the NHLs outdoor games, from Ilya Bryzgalovs tribute to Philadelphia to Jonathan Berniers ode to pond hockeyto the Carey Price mask that still gives us waking nightmares.
What we havent seen from goalies is themed creativity in their other equipment. Thankfully, Detroit Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek is attempting to reverse that trend this season with the most adorable pads weve ever seen:

These pads were tweeted out by former NHLer Brent Johnson and Kathryn Jean (@msconduct). No word on the designer, but one imagines its Ms. Migillicuttys first-grade class in Ann Arbor.
(And six snowflakes on each pad for THE ORIGINAL SIX! Or just because they fit that way. One of the two.)
Barring something unforeseen, Mrazek should be in action at Comerica Parks Winter Festival game between the Wings AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, and the Toronto Maple Leafs AHL team, the Toronto Marlies, on Dec. 30.
The assumption around the Red Wings is that Jimmy Howard will be healthy for the Jan. 1 Winter Classic at The Big House, as he recovers from a sprained MCL. But if he cant go, goalie Mrazek would likely be the backup to Jonas Gustavsson.
No matter in what game he appears, Mrazek should be confident that all shooters are going high glove side. No one with an ounce of the holiday spirit could dare unleash a slap shot at Frosty, could they?
(Also, it would be the greatest thing in the history of winter if the snowman's carrot nose lit up every time the puck crossed the line...)

Those are Awesome!

#2465341 Wings call up Sheahan

Posted by darkmanx on 16 December 2013 - 07:13 PM

I would like to see Jarnkrok. We are having a serious center shortage
Franzen's glove to the face didn't look very bad at all. I bet he was just all pissy after the call was made because he was ready to keep playing then after the call was made he headed to the locked room. Now we have to go through all the protocol due to his ego when we need him in the worst way


Doesn't he have issues with concussions ? I wouldn't jump on him considering we don't even know the story.

Why do we collapse every 3rd period in every game.


We have scored 29 goals in the third period up till this point.


We have allowed 43 goals in the third period up till this point.



Unacceptable, we have allowed more 3rd period goals than any other team in the NHL.


Need full 60 minutes.

I think it's time to move Tatar onto Datsyuk's line. He is playing fantastic.


Edit: We cannot afford to give Tampa anymore points.

He smile a huge smile and thanked me and intoduced himself and his buddy. Seemed genuinely appreciative of my compliments. Nice guy. Night made!

#2461274 Darren Helm Injured

Per Babcock, Darren Helm will miss tomorrow's game in New Jersey with a shoulder injury. #RedWings


TheScore is reporting he has to have an MRI on his shoulder. Can this season get any worse now ?

Monster starts next game! I say they roll with him until he loses otherwise our goalie situation will be like what it is in Toronto, no consistency. The biggest thing I notice between Monster and Howard is Monster helps out the D tremendously because he can play the puck, something Howard really needs to work on.

#2460392 Zetterberg out at least 2 weeks with herniated disc

Posted by darkmanx on 03 December 2013 - 12:36 PM

Why does everyone keep saying Weiss needs to step up now ? How can he playing 8 minutes between 2 scrubs. Babcock needs to stop being retarded and let him replace z for now.
