#2444256 Monday 1 PM start time?

Posted by sleepwalker on 14 October 2013 - 12:56 PM

I absolutely love it. Day off work, turkey left overs and Red Wing game.


Hard to beat.





What, are you guys just co-opting our thanksgiving and traditions?  lol



Shouldn't you guys be celebrating with poutine and Labatts?  Maybe a little back bacon?





#2443981 Fight ends with on-ice seizure

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 October 2013 - 01:59 PM

But we need fighting to keep the players safe.



I see what you did there.


Just to play devils advocate...  One could argue that the only reason injuries like this occur is because players are forced to play on slippery ice and balance on a single blade. 


Ban ice and skates and lets play on a rubber surface and wear sneakers.

#2443076 10/10 GDT: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by sleepwalker on 10 October 2013 - 07:02 PM

This game is a perfect example of how this hybrid icing is going to be a complete clusterf***.


The refs have blown almost every icing/non- icing call so far this game due to that new hybrid crap.

#2442885 Ex-Coyotes owner off hook for Gretzky’s $6.5M.

Honestly, it serves them right for supporting this travesty for so long.  The NHL took over the team, they took over the debts.  


Too many people forget this simple fact.


To bring it closer to home, its like the people who think you can just buy a house in Detroit these days for $1000 since you always hear about htings like that on the news. 


While technically that's true, but what also comes along with that "$1000 house" it is the $34,000 in unpaid taxes owed on it.

#2442841 Stuart faces hearing for hit to head

I always hate when things that were originally non calls like this, are all of the sudden called like 20 seconds after the fact and only when they think someone may have got injured.  Just watch that first video and see how super late of a call it was.

#2442827 Tomas Hertl

I'm sure plenty of people are calling it hot dogging.  Remember when everyone was pissed at Pavs for doing a between the legs on a blow out game within the last few years?  I don't remember which game it was.


Its interesting how much things have changed in just the last few years.  Now people cheer and talk about how awesome these blowouts are.


Just about 5 or 6 years ago though, when the Wings were destroying opponents like this often, a good amount of players, fans, and announcers alike were complaining about how it was bad form and disrespectful to keep scoring goals on an opponent when you are dominating them like that, and after a 3 goal or so lead, you should just sit back and not score any more.  I always thought that was hippy-dippy BS, but for whatever reason, it seemed to be the consensus just a few years back.

#2441337 Oilers Name Six Alternate Captains

Posted by sleepwalker on 03 October 2013 - 12:49 PM



Is this like the Oilers version of the stupid "participation trophy"?  Everyone who is a member of the Oilers gets named an Alternate captain, so as not to hurt anyones feelings...

#2438718 Amway-Red Wings end partnership

Posted by sleepwalker on 24 September 2013 - 01:29 PM

As bad as it was to have the amway pyramid scheme associated with the Wings, I always like to remind people that it could have been worse.  Just look at who the Blues' sponsor is...  Yikes!

#2437599 Jensen out till December/January after fight with Tyler Bertuzzi

Posted by sleepwalker on 19 September 2013 - 01:30 PM

But the only reason Bertuzzi isnt in the serious doghouse right now is because it was Jensen and not a more highly touted prospect.


No, the reason he isn't in "the serious doghouse" right now is because he did exactly what he is supposed to do...agitate the opposing player to the point they lose their cool and end up taking a penalty.

#2437222 Jensen out till December/January after fight with Tyler Bertuzzi

Posted by sleepwalker on 17 September 2013 - 04:16 PM

I saw what happened, he slashed, cross checked and talked s*** to a fellow red wings prospect, then after he got the reaction he wanted proceeded to injure him. 


Oh, please...


The blind hatred some people have for anyone associated with Todd is absurd.


You obviously didn't see what happened.  Jensen started by punching young Bert in the face a couple times.  Bert didn't do anything back except talk some smack.  Then Bert gave Jensen a very minor shove/crosscheck near the net a few moments later and Jensen immediately dropped the gloves and started wailing.

#2436463 Torts on Twitter: "most narcissistic thing I have ever seen"

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 September 2013 - 09:49 AM

So, I assume most peoples beef is with the use of the word "most".


I mean, lets be real here, twitter and facebook (and similar things) are very narcissistic.  99.9% of posts on those site don't say anything relevant or meaningful, its just people talking about themselves.

#2436342 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by sleepwalker on 12 September 2013 - 06:37 PM

What surprises me the most is that Damien Brunner is still a UFA and I can promise you that he would of took the same deal..


Maybe now that it is obvious either him or his agent were totally delusional, (and that's a big maybe) but even now I highly doubt he would take that deal.


Don't forget Brunner originally wanted a guaranteed top 6 spot, AND $3+ mil a year, AND a 3+ year contract.

#2436088 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by sleepwalker on 12 September 2013 - 10:37 AM


Holland said they have 3 weeks to decide how to trim roster.




So how do we do this now with Cleary as well as the other spots that need to be cleared? 


If he takes Tatars spot, I'm driving up to the D and punching Kenny.

#2434522 USA Olympic '14 Jerseys

Posted by sleepwalker on 31 August 2013 - 08:20 AM

It looks like cheap commercialized garbage. Certainly not representative of anything in the USA. 




Actually, when you put it like that, it sounds perfectly representative of the USA and the tastes of the people within....




Sad, but true...
