#2546595 Strong Penalty Killing, Lack of Scoring the Story of 2014 So Far

Posted by number9 on 04 November 2014 - 03:01 PM

Tank the season for mcdavid you say?

I'm actually really starting to get behind this tank idea. I'm not sure how well the tracks work on ice, but that thing would be a helluva big body in front of the net

So he has a similar problem like the Red Wings have.... scoring

thankfully the players are made of sterner stuff than some of the "fans" are....

#2542600 Pavel Datsyuk update?

Posted by dat's sick on 20 October 2014 - 12:25 PM

God forbid nostril gets scratched. He really hasn't impressed me much, give Weiss a few games to get going

Nestrasil is doing a lot of things right. He's heavy on the puck, making nice plays defensively, and he's had some good looks offensively but hasn't gotten anything to go in. If I'm the coach I'm icing the team that has the best chance of getting me wins, not playing a guy to "get him going".

Sweet. Holland would be able to get JVR for Glendenning if Babs was Toronto’s GM.

#2538666 Blast from the Past

Posted by Son of a Wing on 06 October 2014 - 11:04 PM

So I was going through a bunch of my Dad's old things and stumbled upon one of his NHL contracts from the Red Wings lying in between the pages of an old program.


I've never seen an NHL contract before (let alone from the 70s) and thought it was interesting and that I would share for others interested as well.


The salary and bonuses give an interesting perspective in comparison to today.  The average salary (according to the HHOF) in 1970 was $18,000.

No really. Think about it. Callahan? Callashan? Shallashan? Shanahan.

I rest my case.

I can usually pick out your sarcasm, and I know you're a sarcastic bastard 95% of the time :lol:, so I can only assume (hope) that was yet another sarcastic comment lol...

Pasha, Mantha, Nyquist like Goldberg would ask "who's next?"

"They're bigger! They're stronger! They're faster! They've got more facial hair!"

#2536982 Datsyuk 2nd degree separated shoulder injury - out approx 4 weeks

Posted by Smite on 23 September 2014 - 11:24 AM

good Interview with Dats




Dats: "I got hit in to the galsses.

Helene St.James: "How do you feel?"

Dats: "Better ask how glasses feel"


HSJ: "how do you think Darren Helm looks today?"

Dats: "He is ready for Halloween"


Least he is in good spirits.

Just kidding. I didn't see this thread this year, so I figured I'd make it. Go Wings!  :lol:

#2536916 9/22/14 7:00 PM. Preseason GDT - DET 2 @ PIT 1

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 22 September 2014 - 10:01 PM

Just got back from the game.  My 6 year old was a very good road fan for us chanting "Lets Go Wings" for every single "Lets Go Pens".  A kid across the aisle from us was waving a terrible towel and he waved it at my son when the Pens scored.  When Datsyuk scored, he goes "Not waving that towel now huh?!"  I was in shock, he's usually pretty mild mannered, but he was really getting into it.  Everyone around us just laughed, except the kid with the towel.  Here are a few good pics I got:
