Are you using adblock? If so, that might be the issue. (Skyscraper ads are the only thing in that column -- 160px body and allowing for a 20px margin on the left side.)

Ah yes, I always forget ABP actually works. I knew you wouldn't have just left gaping whitespace for no reason. ABP is now disabled on this domain to support LGW.

#2308440 2012-13 Detroit Red Wings Schedule

Posted by rrasco on 21 June 2012 - 10:31 AM

The Canadiens are coming in on January 30th! I went to the last game the Candiens came into the Joe and it was a blast. The crowd was amazing!

I hear the Leafs are playing near Detroit in early January as well.

#2308439 Pavel and his girlfriend at the NHL Awards

Posted by rrasco on 21 June 2012 - 10:30 AM

No, there was indeed speculation on at least one poster's part that claimed they heard Pavel and Svetlana had quietly divorced. I have no idea where they got that from, but I remember it as well. I for one am happy to see this.

#2307218 Zach Parise

I don't see Parise or Suter getting the C. You have to earn that s***, especially here.

#2306615 Trade

Posted by rrasco on 11 June 2012 - 12:43 PM

That is very dependent on the composition and make up of the team. LA is made up of 'average players' without a Norris or RR candidate, yet they are getting the job done. Can't put all your eggs in one basket; this is a team sport.

#2305688 Alexander Radulov.

There isn't the faintest chance that Nashville offered Radulov $9m per year, so I don't know why any of you are still making reference to that rumor.

At least it's not Parise/Suter/Lines/Other Beaten to Death Offseason Topic.

Well if Nashville did indeed offer him $9M per year, guess they weren't too set on keeping Suter around....btw, if that indeed was an offer, what the hell is it going to take to sign Parise?

That's what I was thinking. Nashville is already going to have trouble signing a complete roster, much less while throwing 9m at a single player who has yet to prove anything in this league.

#2305430 Throw the bank at RFA Shea Weber?

Posted by rrasco on 05 June 2012 - 02:53 PM

Rather have Suter.


Suter was drafted higher as well, same year.

Agree on the signing as a RFA. But that is a different issue. There are several posts here saying they don't want Weber period. Low class, don't need that type of stuff etc.... Well sorry but that is pure 100% BS. Worst part is, it completely ignores facts. From the mid 80's through 96 the RW's were one of the most skilled teams in all the NHL. lead or near the top in scoring year after year. raked up goals and points. How many Cups did we win? 0. it wasn't untill we learned to play D and learned how to play tough that we started to win. Look at all teh great offensive players we had during that period. oates, Klima, Yzerman, later added Federov, Kozlov, Lirianov, Coffey, Lidstorm etc...... the list goes on and on. It wasn't untill lapointe, McCarty, Shanahan, Kocur, Rouse, ward, Pushor etc...... came along, with their toughness that we started to win. Fight Night at the Joe is what made this team. There is no doubt about that. Every player on the team from 97 says so. heck....I wonder how many of the high and mighty posted threads on this forum bashing Burt when he went after weber the next game? Don't seem to be able to find any......... In fact, I seem to remember everyone in every media forum giving kudos to burt for doing it.

People are not talking about fighting or standing up for your team, they're talking about being af****** ****** bag goon.

*stick taps* for Captain Nick

#2303932 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Posted by rrasco on 30 May 2012 - 04:45 PM

All the "secondary" players, too- Chelios, Probert, everyone on the Grind Line, Hull, Hasek, CuJo, Lucky Luc, Shanahan, Schneider, Holmstrom, Zetterberg... It's good to be a Wings fan.

Did you just call Z a secondary player?

#2303551 Vote for the NHL 13 cover player

Posted by rrasco on 28 May 2012 - 07:30 PM

I stopped voting altogether now. I was gonna get a Datsyuk cover if he won, but now that he's out of the running, i put a down payment on the special edition NHL 13. I don't want anything to do with either of Rinne or Malkin. Stanley cup schwag is cool though...

I'm just going to print out the Dats cover and slip it in the sleeve of my copy.
