#2620556 New Ultra-Enhanced Video/Renderings of the Arena District

Posted by number9 on 14 July 2015 - 10:46 PM

Whether people believe in New arenas or not I think one thing is clear: if billionaires want new shiny state of the art and even above that arenas pay for them with your own money..Lord knows those guys have more than enough of it.

Personally I would go as far as calling it crime if politicians - who by all accounts should work on behalf of the people - agree to such ludicrous deals. There is no way that a new arena should lead to closure of much more important stuff like education facilities , libraries, hospitals.

I mean it's proven that the city is Alex's getting the short end of the stick here. As much as I admire all the things that the best owner in all of sports has done something like this is not something were I agree with him but I for sure understand that he had to stand up for his biggest project. The politicians on the other side should be on the hook with their own money and not the tax payers one.

So the right answer would be want a new arena pay for it with your own money, period. If that leads to a team threatening to leave call their bluff

 

I agree, however I don't blame the owner. The owner is operating in a system which allows him to conduct business like this. Why does he get to operate like this? because at the end of the day we allow it.

 

An owner worth billions can't afford a multi-million stadium? Doesn't make sense. I'd love to see our tax dollars not go to this arena, It's been shown that successful sports don't boost a city. Detroit should exhibit A in that department.

 

If people get mad about it... it will change. But for the most part we're all just excited to get a new arena. Arena combat was and is the glory of Rome.

Pretty sad when this thread has more posts then the Nyquist signing.

 

We must beat the Nyquist signing thread!

 

Brian McGrattan was born in a log cabin that he built with his own hands




#2619866 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2015 - 03:45 PM

Yeah I hate when defensemen choose high numbers. I guess all the good D numbers are taken here though. We need to ditch kindl cause 4 is prime


Actually 4 is composite. 2 is prime though, trade Smith.


#2619847 Pittsburgh: America's hockey capital? Lol

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2015 - 01:30 PM

Anyone who doesn't think Minnesota is the U.S capital of hockey is wrong. Whole state just breathes it. That being said, Detroit will always be HockeyTown.


Yeah well Minnesota can suck it too LGHT


#2619834 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2015 - 12:49 PM

 
Man I made an issue out of nothing with my comment.
 
I see McCarty, Probert, and Kocur in a class all their own, so 24, 25, and 26 will always remind me of them. (Probert and Chelios pretty much swapped jerseys.) That's it. It's not a personal attack on any players, I don't care what they do off the ice.
 
 
Who?


Emdog bro. Don't tell me u don't kno Emdog....


#2619800 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

McCarty is probably #1 on my list of Red Wings I'd like to have a beer with




#2619797 Babcock's already losing it?

Posted by number9 on 09 July 2015 - 11:18 AM

Babcock's not losing it.  Look what he just said about the Red Wings...

 

"They hired good people and let them do their jobs. There's no question that Ken Holland — everyone talks about Lidstrom and Yzerman and Datsyuk and Zetterberg, but the superstar there is Ken Holland."

Lol Babs is so dumb. Doesn't even realize Holland inherited this team.

I'd have preferred a smaller player. A Tyler Johnson type.


#2619568 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by number9 on 08 July 2015 - 09:25 AM

I think they evened out with how many were called back.
At least, that's what those two would probably tell you.

 

New Holmstrom should wear 69 instead of 96 and the back of his sweater should say 'NEW HOLMSTROM'




#2619550 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by number9 on 07 July 2015 - 11:59 PM

I love how we never talk about retiring 96. Holmstrom is (for the most part) universally loved by RW fans, but at the same time I feel like he gets forgotten in the talk of stars of higher reputation. Spent his whole career here and is probably the best net front powerforward of all time. Much like how Lidstrom was great without playing like a Stevens, Holmstrom was great without playing like a Lucic. Fundamentally sound in every way. Probably why those guys were friends (Lids and Homer that is)

 

Seriously, what kind of hit to his points does Lidstrom take without Holmstrom in front of the net? Not many do what he did at that caliber.

 

I know I'm just being nostalgic now, but seriously what's Homers knock? Points? To me he makes up for that in intangibles. What's Osgoods knock? Great stats but great team? Fedorov? Great all around but bailed? I think a true hockey sav would look at Holmstrom and realize just how massively important he was to the Wings.

 

For pete sake he ended his career as the final touch to the euro twins lines practically

Babcock is hands down the best coach in the league. Has been considered so for sometime. If he thinks Kadri can be elite it must be true.
