#2580604 Preds don't postpone game, but get fan experience right

Posted by rrasco on 10 March 2015 - 04:57 PM

 

Oh I realize that. Just saying it's not the end of the world some places who aren't used to snow make it out to be. Seen cities fully shut down for only a few inches of snow. Some people do get scared driving in those conditions though, even up here. But if your confident enough, should'nt be a problem at all.

 

It's not just the people though.  For one, places that don't get snow often usually deal with more ice.  Ice is much more dangerous than snow.  Secondly, the cities are not equipped to deal with it.  No salt trucks, etc.  People also don't have winter tires in the South.  Northerners just like to think they are superior for some reason.  Not to mention I've been in Michigan in winter, nobody could drive in snow there either.




#2575067 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

I'm a fan of the GDT. Need a W tonight for this ridiculous road trip to be considered reasonably successful.

 

We've got 5 out of 8 points so far, that's pretty good.

 

How long have the Sharks been in the league? And their shark on the logo is STILL working that first stick. It's like he's not even trying.

 

They recently changed jerseys...

Man...got back from Dallas last night.  What an epic game to be at.

 

It sure was fun taunting Stars fans after that double comeback.




#2565692 crazy hockey dad

I think people are overreacting (not just here, in the hockey world).  The guy barely hits the glass and it shatters.  And he does react, just not in complete shock.  It's not like he pulled out a battering ram.

 

He reminds me of the boss from floor 3 or 4 on Kung Fu where he just kicks or punches and you die.




#2565573 Mantha Still Hopes to Play in Detroit This Season

Unless there is an injury I don't see him doing anything more than serving as a black ace.  They might give him one game at some point if we are not in too tight of a race, just to see what he looks like on NHL ice, but barring those conditions I don't really expect it.

Alumni game!  Alumni game!  Alumni game!




#2563352 Could the Wings be better off trading Pav & Hank for draft picks?

Posted by rrasco on 15 January 2015 - 03:13 PM

http://kuklaskorner....build-the-leafs

 

I just read Damien Cox's piece on KK about blowing up the Leafs.  It made me wonder if all parties may be served best if Pav & Hank would be allowed to go to a place with a genuine shot at the cup (if that would suit them) and the wings can load up on some draft picks to help launch a team in a few years when our young guys today are seasoned and would be complimented by an influx in talent for a longer run?

 

For many reasons Holland has not been able to reshape the team enough through trades or free agency, For more than half a decade.  He has done a great job and has had some fortune in the draft and development area's. 

 

Is anybody else wondering about this?  I just don't see enough help in our future.  

 

Did we live in the same past 5 years?  Because we are finally starting to see the results of all that reshaping.




#2562133 McGratton on waivers

Posted by rrasco on 09 January 2015 - 06:35 PM

 

Well one of the two people you're talking about just got waived because he's EXACTLY an unskilled meathead goon, and the other didn't have a place on the only team in the league that 100% embraces unskilled meathead goons.  So what point are you trying to make?  That one of the two of them is a good hockey player?

 

They're just different levels of unskilled, meatheaded, goon.  Hence nobody (other than perennially horrible Florida) wants them. 

 

You mean the Florida the Wings can't seem to beat?

Horrible thoughts and prayers to his family, loved ones

 

You might want to add some punctuation after "horrible".

 

I agree, this is horrible.  Thoughts and prayers to his family, loved ones.

my girlfriend is cheering for chicago. anyone have any advice for me?

 

Dafuq you doing with her?  That's sacrilege.  I've kicked women out of my house for less (like cheering for the fawken sharks).




#2548555 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by rrasco on 11 November 2014 - 12:29 PM

Bill Daly....I think I hate that smug bastard more than Bettman.  Amazing they just blatantly lie about s*** whenever they feel the need to.  Probably has something to do with us being the best fans in the world.




#2547785 11/7 GDT : Devils 2 at Red Wings 4

Posted by rrasco on 07 November 2014 - 03:06 PM

Yeah I know, but I missed the game so I'm "excited" to see him tonight. Btw, looks like he had a good game against Rangers. Scored and recorded 4 hits too.

 

Ah, ok.  His goal was pretty flukey (refs missed it and played continued for about 90 seconds), but they don't ask how, just how many.  I couldn't stop laughing though because I know it probably gave Babs a stiffy and now he'll play the last 70~ games.

This game went from horrible to amazing in 2 minutes.

Sucks he has to wear 20 because Gelinas is 22.




#2541747 Lucic has a meltdown as Bruins get smacked by Habs...again

Posted by rrasco on 17 October 2014 - 04:28 PM

Serious? I'd call it an accomplishment if we don't finish last with the garbage we have.

 

Well, first off, we're not that bad.  Secondly, he said he hopes they run away with it.  I for one hope the Wings do.  Not that I think it's a realistic expectation, but one can dream.
