#2646016 All Purpose Grand Rapids Griffins Thread

Posted by TheXym on 04 January 2016 - 07:08 PM

I just want to take a moment to thank those who get to actually watch the Griffins and post the updates for those of us who don't have the opportunity to do so.


#2646014 America's Team?

Posted by TheXym on 04 January 2016 - 07:01 PM

After seeing the ratings for the WC the last 2 years, I have to wonder: Are the Detroit Red Wings the Dallas Cowboys of hockey?
How bout dem Red Wings!!


Interesting thought, but under the Iltich ownership no way do they completely s*** on a player or coach the way the Cowboys did with Tom Landry and replaced him with a coach whose college program had cheating scandals.

I agree, if the Wings get back to a final, the band wagoners will be all aboard.

Hopefully Larkin is OK to play and lights it up. Let's Go Wings! May you play hockey tonight like Jaco Pastorius played bass! (I just finished watching the biopic of him that Bob Trujillo produced, my wife finally understands why I play bass like she she understands why I love the Wings).

Great job by Petr to stay strong in the crease, lots of shot blocks by the D, great effort to hold the lead, though I'd have preferred an insurance marker.

With Boston and Montreal losing, this was a big ROW win to start the road trip.

Hopefully Larkin is back next game good as new.

Come on guys, keep pushing. Bring home the two points in regulation!

Anybody else think Smith is really wanting to chip in offensively?

There it is! Not a PP goal, but I will gladly take it. Glendening with a Holmstromish tip. Get the insurance goal guys.
Helm and Smith with the helpers.
Tried to get way too cute on that odd man rush and almost paid for it.

Come on guys, lock it down and get the insurance marker.

Ah, when you don't have your own traditions you just borrow ones from more successful franchises. You're welcome, Perds.


Just remember, Preds is Derps spelled sideways. :)

and there it is. Another star player out because of a cheap hit that not only went unpenalized, but unpunished as well, from the team or the NHL. Sure wish Toots was still on this team...


Damn shame nobody made the Devils punk pay for the cheap hit. Hopefully it isn't anything serious, and Dylark gets back on stride the next game and racks up a couple points.


I'm liking the lead, but I really want two or three insurance goals.


#2644265 That lazy Mantha....

Posted by TheXym on 24 December 2015 - 09:08 AM

Well said, Rich. Mantha in some ways is a victim of the hype machine. I'm pretty optimistic based on what those who actually watch the Griffs have been reporting.


#2644258 Anybody think this is legit?

Posted by TheXym on 24 December 2015 - 12:14 AM

If you can't get what you want from sportsK, I bought my Konstantinov and Fedorov pro jerseys from River City Sports out of Winnipeg years ago and their service was great.


#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

Posted by TheXym on 21 December 2015 - 12:21 AM

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!


#2643651 Nosek and Oulette recalled.

Posted by TheXym on 20 December 2015 - 04:24 PM

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


#2643649 12/20 GDT : Calgary Flames at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

Posted by TheXym on 20 December 2015 - 04:19 PM

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.
