I've never seen it called before, so I didn't even think of that, still pretty cowardly


I remember someone got called for fighting abby last year (I think) with a visor.  Of course, I've seen Abby fight with one too.  I've seen it called once or twice other than that, so it is pretty rare.  Kind of like how when they throw someone out for a faceoff violation, if the same team commits another one, they are supposed to call a delay of game, but they never do...they just drop the puck.

We REALLY need some whistles at Red Wings games... just sayin. Listen, you all know it's going to happen eventually, might as well get used to the idea. :D


For the love of god, please no.........

You mean tough hits like this?  Gotta give RJ credit for coming back that game and scoring a goal though.


#2346280 Nail Yakupov Goal Celebration.

And you would be as useless as Tatar.


Thanks for the clarification.  You're point is crystal.  You deflect from the topic because you have no leg to stand on.  We're talking about goal celebrations, not how useful someone would be.

No. If you can walk the walk, then talk the talk if you wish. Tatar is a minor leaguer.


You're not making any sense.  You said Tatar acted like a moron his first goal and then justified that by saying it's okay for Yakupov to do that because he is going to score more goals......so what you are saying is only 'good' players are allowed to celebrate?


You can bet your ass if I am 'not going to score that much', when I did score, I'd be pretty stoked.

#2346210 1/25 GDT : Wild 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by rrasco on 25 January 2013 - 03:02 PM

Ya that Suter, I would LOVE to see that again! :) I went nuts last year when Dats did that :D

Too bad itprobably won't be Z feeding Pasha again though, I wouldn't mind Blade Brunner pulling something like that though


I'm pretty sure I went ape s*** and did laps around my couch...and I didn't even spill my beer.

Suter?  This Suter?  I'd love for this to happen again, but don't make me wait until the end of the game.


#2344644 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

Posted by rrasco on 22 January 2013 - 03:11 PM

He didn't refuse to sign with Detroit, his rights were traded to Columbus and he signed with them before free agency started.  Might want to be accurate the next time.


Accurate?  Yeah, you're spot on!  Let's just say he was never really interested, because well, he knew someone would overpay and that someone wasn't Kenny H.


Speaking of money, Canton's James Wisniewski signed a six-year deal with Columbus valued at $5.5 million a season. The Red Wings were interested, but not at that price or that term.


"For me, knowing Detroit's history they don't really pay the market value for a defenseman or any player,'' Wisniewski said on NHL Live. "So I didn't think that was going to be a fit for myself.

See post #70 where I tell you exactly what I would have done.  Or you could dig back through old threads where I repeatedly argued for signing Matt Carle AND Bryan Allen for less than we eventually DID OFFER for Suter.  Or even older threads were I repeatedly argued for signing James Wisniewski.  Holy s***, there's three top four defensemen I wanted who aren't named Ryan Suter and who are all currently playing top minutes for their respective teams. 


Repeatedly argued to sign a James Wisniewski who refused to sign with Detroit?  Good luck with that one.

#2341403 Old Red Wings Wallpaper, from 01-02

Posted by rrasco on 18 January 2013 - 08:19 PM

Awhile back I was going through some old hard drives and stumbled across these wallpapers I downloaded over 10 years ago.  The timestamps on the files were from 11/21/2001.  Resolution pretty low, but I'm pretty sure I was running a 15" CRT back then at 800x600.


I thought some folk around here would appreciate them.

Soooo happy to see these back Mike!  Killer new design too; I was waiting to see what you had in store for us.  I'm curious, do you have a jersey pre-made for players of all teams or did you create a template?

It's been a long road for Patty.  I'm so happy for him.  He must be so relieved.

Mine still says $0.00 from last year too.  I was just on the phone with DTV and the guy told me it was $60; four payments of $14.99.  He looked it up because he didn't believe me it would be that cheap for the whole year, but then I told him about the lockout.  He confirmed that information as has been reported.

While you guys boycott the NHL.  I'll be watching hockey drinking a cold one.  Enjoy!
