#2473293 Bleacher Report: 5 positive things in the Red Wings

Posted by amato on 16 January 2014 - 01:55 PM

the biggest positive is that an "off season" for the wings = playoff bubble team. while making the playoffs isn't a given nowadays, the wings are a team that know how to get there.. and they will.

 

i too cannot wait to watch a fully healthy detroit red wings roster.




#2473073 Datsyuk - Team Russia captain for Sochi

As much as I want USA to take home the gold, it'd be awesome to watch hank and pav battle it out for first as captains.

#2472710 Certain NHL attendance metrics are better than NBA

Posted by amato on 13 January 2014 - 11:32 AM

The NBA eastern conference also has something embarrassing like only two teams above .500.
So.
Grain of salt type of thing.

 

guess it could fall under "more talent" then.... or at least talent more spread out.

Are the Everblades a Lightning affiliate? If so that means Yzerman and co get first dibs.....


Yes, according to PHT they are an affiliate to both the lightning and the canes.

#2470175 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Posted by amato on 02 January 2014 - 06:51 AM

Almost didn't go.. ticket plans fell thru and ended up buying them on the way to Ann Arbor to celebrate new years with my friend the night before and I'm so glad I did.

It was freezing cold and unfortunate that we couldn't get the win but I don't even care, what an incredible experience :)

LGW!

Also nice to follow it up with a rose bowl win. 2014 has been pretty great so far!

#2463405 Weiss, out Thursday (apparent groin/ab issue)

Posted by amato on 11 December 2013 - 12:02 PM

Well it doesn't get much worse than ESPN and, in the states, at least, it doesn't get much better than decent.

Losing a natural center who, despite what most here seem to think, has not been a defensive liability and has won faceoffs pretty well while struggling offensively is not good. That being said, it will only feed the anti-Weiss vitriol around here. Most probably only want the second line to succeed so they can heap on Weiss some more.

Samuelsson - Datsyuk - Cleary...on the fourth line.

 

yeah, i agree that its not good news.. it's just not terrible news really. I'd definitely rather have him in the lineup and I'm one of the few that still like the signing and think he'll be fine.

 

and the line of course, was for teh lolz at babs' expense :P

#2462676 12/10 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Panthers 3 (SO)

Posted by amato on 10 December 2013 - 11:35 AM

really wish i would've thought of it early enough to do it myself but a "Return of the Jedi" reference GDT graphic would've been perfect!

 

 

Return of the Pasha!! :P LGW
