Posted by Jersey Wing on Yesterday, 07:57 AM

It's my birthday and I have things to do and places to be so I did not wait for the morning skate to see if Datsyuk and Kronwall are in but let's hope for good things!

#2583234 Positive feel good thread

Posted by Smite on 20 March 2015 - 10:19 AM

With all the feel good stories that happen (Tootoo's Stick giveaway).I would like to start a thread of feel good NHL stories... Please leave out negativity. If you have an objection, no judgements just move along.

 

Please add your positive thoughts and stories.

 

I would like to start with the letter to Carey Price about the Selfie.

 

Story: Link

 

 

To my hero Carey Price,

I have always regarded you as one of my heroes, but it was only yesterday that I started to think long about what a hero means to me.

A hero is someone who you not only admire for their outstanding achievements, but also for their kindness.

You, Mr. Price, do both.

Our family travelled to New York City for Saturday night’s game. I tried to take a selfie with you. You noticed me and gave me the memory of a lifetime. You looked and asked me for my selfie in the middle of an intense game and I wanted to say thank you.

Thank you for being the generous person I have always believed that you were.

Who would have thought that the selfie would be captured by a cameraman during the break and make the headlines? But it happened!

The story went viral and since then we have been contacted by several radio stations and sports television stations for interviews.

This story is not really about me. I am not different from the other millions of fans. This story is about you, and proof that a true hero is not measured in the greatness of his strength, but the strength of his heart.

Carey, the truth is that you were my hero before Saturday night and now it may well be that you become a hero and an inspiration to many other fans who often need to believe in the power of a single moment. A unique moment that I will replay in my head and possibly play again in the heads of every young fan who has the feeling of being part of a selfie.

Because it could have been anyone else posing with you.

This is perhaps my selfie, but this has nothing to do with me.

So, Mr. Price, thank you for proving that your skills on the ice are secondary to your kindness!

You gave me a memory that will last a lifetime and there is nothing more generous to a young hockey fan like me.

Sincerely,

Justin

 




#2583212 Connor McDavid

Posted by Son of a Wing on 20 March 2015 - 08:22 AM

McDavid and Eichel aren't the usual top picks they're young phenom. Especially McDavid has the potential to become another Crosby or maybe even better. It pisses me of how much crap Buffalo is getting for doing the right thing. Ufas won't sign there (for now), centers are hard to come by do what other option do they have? None talents like McEichel aren't going to be in every draft. I hope McDavid can do for them what The Captain did for us. I also wouldn't be too cocky about never needing a top pick because well when Pasha is gone...The blow has to be lessened somehow and soon after him Z too.

 

Drafting top picks are not the only way to acquire and/or develop elite players.

 

As a Wings fan, you should know better.

They have an official SJ Sharks dinner set. It has plates and bowls but no cups, and if you use it in May or June, everything falls apart

#2582394 Mrazek to start how many games?

Posted by rick zombo on 15 March 2015 - 05:07 PM

Right now, it looks like Mrazek's style suits this Wings team better. Other team's game plans vs Detroit boils down to dumping the puck, getting on the grind, shooting from the point, and getting deflections and dirty goals. Mrazek's puck-handling and quickness in tight make that game plan hard to execute.

But being THE guy, and playing all the time, is different than being the backup, obviously.

#2581266 offense needs to step up

Posted by number9 on 13 March 2015 - 10:53 AM

But we're #2 in fewest goals against during 5x5 play behind Montreal. And we don't have Carey Price in net.

#2580775 2013 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 March 2015 - 01:12 PM

I predict that holland trades the Wings first rounder for 2 more picks and gets 2 players he was considering taking in the first anyway.




#2580754 2013 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Bumping this thread because when you google Hampus Melen, it's one of the first links that comes up. So naturally, I proceeded to read through the thread, and :lol: at all the great Hampus jokes. We are a witty bunch.
