#2655157 2/26 GDT : Red Wings at Avalanche Alumni Game, 7:00 EST

Posted by amato on 26 February 2016 - 07:34 AM

To be honest - I'm looking forward to seeing the alumni game more than the 'real' game.

I don't think I've talked to anyone who has thought otherwise. :D

And ok foote, you do that.. McCarty looks forward to it haha

Hey, he scored two goals that should impress Wings fans.  He actually went to the net on one goal and actually scored on a breakaway on another.  Two things most of our players don't seem capable of doing.  


More allstar goals than crosby.  :clap:

Abby recently wrote a player's tribune article about what it was like scoring the national championship winning goal in college; figured I'd share. 


Pretty good article from the Player's Tribune, as always. Enjoy :)

Finally the Larkin-Datsyuk-Tatar line! :D stoked for that (sorry if they've been rolling with that line, I haven't been able to watch the last couple games) but wooo!

A win and we're within a point of first in the division. LGW!

Looks like he's going to be the captain of the Atlantic division. Yay!

Still Pacific division. But still yay! :P

Arizona seems like as good of a place as any for Larkin's first career hatty. :D  LGW!!

Buffalo does sound like a good fit. Jimmy is easily better than any option they have imo.

#2646467 Goalie Battle

Goalies traded in 2015-16 (since end of last season):
Jones (twice)
rights to Niemi
Maybe four or five whose first names most of us would know. Not much received in exchange altho Lehner (with Legwand) yielded a first-rounder (!). Jones with a pick and a player yielded Lucic. Then Jones went for a first. Talbot yielded a second, third and seventh. Every other deal was who for who. So I stand corrected, there is some market for goalies. But I don't see Howard being of much interest to anyone. Even if we ate $3M per year, he has never won anything.

Yeah, points taken. I'm not saying we'd get a huge return or anything but there is definitely a market for goalies.. Also, I don't think the rest of the league thinks Howard is as bad as wings fans think; I could be wrong though I guess.

I did forget about his limited ntc though so that complicates things a little.. but I'd think he'll want to start somewhere rather than backup here. We'll see.

The Lark Ness Monster!

This makes me way more excited for the all-star game, meaningless game or not.. Good for Dylark, he's earned it. Keep up the good work, kid!
