#2644256 Merry Christmas

Posted by TheXym on 23 December 2015 - 11:19 PM

I know it is a hair early, but I'd like to wish everyone on LGW a very Merry Christmas (or whatever other holiday tradition you observe)!

A lot of the regulars know I am a music teacher. Here is a vid of one of the songs my concert choir did this year in our winter concert that our tech admin put online. Thanks to Jimmyemeryhunter for the help with the embed. Enjoy, it is a little-known song called "That Night" arranged by Ronn Huff taken from his cantata "Unto Us a Child Is Born"




#2643772 12/20 GDT : Calgary Flames at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

I only saw the last 8 minutes of the game due to being out with my wife and some friends for my birthday, but I did rock my white Konstantinov jersey with the NHL 75th patch that I got forever ago. I'm glad the Wings gave me a win for a present. Keep it rolling into the Christmas holiday against the Devils, Let's Go Wings!

It hope he isn't wearing 82, that might make him channel the suckitude of Kopecky or break his collarbone.

Win it for the Konstantinov jersey with the '97 Cup patch I just got for Christmas! 
 
They need to take charge from the first drop of the puck.  The Wings haven't commanded a game in much too long.  I want to see the Big Red Machine tonight, boys, and I'm not talking about Calgary.
 
(I think the jersey has upped the hostility level)


Nice, I will wear the Konstantinov jersey I have in honor of yours. Here's hoping the Wings pound the Flames into submission.

Power play looking very sloppy.


I hope it doesn't come back to bite the Wings. They have been e better team most of the nit but it is only a one shot game. Get some more run support for Mrazek, already.

Inconsistency of the NHL


Subtle inconsistency. I guess he needed to have a more active stick and take a DRIIIIVE! (Oh wait, I'm watching the MSG feed, not NBC).

That could be the worst penalty shot ever


Eaves' fail a few seasons ago was worse, but at least it had the comedy factor.

Richards rips a sweet one timer off a nice feed from Pavel to draw first blood.

Keep the pressure, guys!


#2641475 What are the chances Larkin wins the Calder ?

Posted by TheXym on 06 December 2015 - 12:09 PM

dylark is consistently making his case. Once Kane cools off, I think Panarin will as well. Larkin seems to be much more self-generating in terms of his offensive production rather than riding anyone's coat tails. The age difference is also going to come into play as well, I think. His plus-minus stat is becoming more and more impressive. Even though I take plus-minus with a grain of salt, his number relative to the rest of his team is quite telling, IMHO. If the Wing's offense continues to click the way it has, is Vladdy's mark of +60 from 95-96 in reach?


#2641354 musicians that are red wing fans?

Posted by TheXym on 05 December 2015 - 05:03 PM

You can probably find musicians sporting the gear of several different sporting teams as a lot would wear gear from the local team in cities where they perform.


Cheap applause that way. My gigs are in baby Pens and Baby Sens territory but I still rep the Wings fairly often. :)


And my humblest thanks for the mention earlier in the thread.


#2641323 12/3 GDT : Arizona Coyotes at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

IMHO, the Hanzal play on Pulkks was much dirtier, tripping him then driving him into the boards. Pulkks had no chance to brace for the hit. Tripping into the boards from that spot at speed can be dangerous enough even without a follow up boarding to make sure you hurt the guy. Nothing accidental on that at all. I didn't think Hanzal was that kind of a dirty player.

The Miller hit, while unfortunate, I have less of a problem with, as Drew was pretty low to the ground. Though, Dahlbeck could have eased up instead of just blowing Drew up, I think if the teams were switched most would be arguing clean hit a la the Havsplat.

Ozzie got hernia surgery.
And I hate, HATE the maple leafs. But I've got nothing bad to say bout them jerseys.


Their jerseys aren't bad, but I couldn't pass up the chance to take a dig at the leafs. :)

LOL woooow. That's hilarious, talk about being pessimistic, is that a movie? I'd love to watch it


It's from Major League.

It's certainly not fantasy.


Miller was caught in a landslide.... of awesome

Eichel sucks lol. Such an overhyped second pick.


Now now, it's not his fault that Larkin is better. :)
