Music (I teach high school choir, music theory, music history, and music technology plus play bass in several bands as well as freelance on keys); Reading sci-fi, fantasy, and military fiction; plus a wide variety of other stuff.
I get the Yzerman-Fedorov point, though a more appropriate analogy may be Hull and Oates. The idea of a line of Larkin centering Mantha and Pulkkinen if they max their potential is pretty sick. I'd say keep them both.
Although, I definitely can see Ouellet sticking with the Wings full time to start next season, and he probably should, I definitely wouldn't be at all surprised if he started the year once again down in Grand Rapids... To say you'd be surprised that a 22 year old kid stays in Grand Rapids for another year is a bit of stretch don't ya think? As far as I know Ken Holland is still managing this team... Seriously though, who was the last 22 year old defenseman to make the Red Wings full time? I can't recall anyone making this team that young...
My first guess was Mathieu Dandenault, born in 1976 and played 65 games in the 1996-1997 season, 34 the previous season. My second guess was Jiri Fischer, born 1980. He played 52 games in 1999-2000 but also spent time in the AHL, 55 in 2000-2001 again spending time in the AHL, and 80 in 2001-2002 e obvious answer is Lidstrom, but he was a generational talent that is not a fair comparison, born 1970 and playing 80 games in 1991-1992. Still, it has happened before. DeKeyser came close.
My gut says Ouellet will get sent down because he can, but I wouldn't be surprised if he stayed up.
Chelios, hands down. Three Cups, three Norris trophies, the plus-minus award, the leadership award, all-rookie team, first team all-star five times, second team all-star two times. Named to the all-star game 11 times. 1651 GP, 185 G, 763 A, 948 P, +350, 2891 PIM regular season, 266 GP, 31 G, 113 A, 144 P, 408 PIM playoffs.
In all seriousness, I do agree with roboturner that using it for determining if a puck actually crossed the goal line could be a good thing. Heck, anything to offset the incompetence of on-ice officials would be good.
I've only been on here since last summer, and it was already an ongoing joke by then, so apparently I missed something awesome.
One of the best drunk posts in the history of the Internet.
