Mrazek standing tall. Bring it home guys. Let's Go Wings!

Nice hustle by Tinky Winky there.

Wow, Pulks knocks the puck down with his hand and got a shot off pretty quickly there.

Is it just me, or is Ericsson getting outmuscled off pucks way too often by guys much smaller than him?

Btw, 2nd assist for Larkin on the night?

And the return of the dreaded last minute goal.

He's gonna be really good.


Agreed. But Larkin will hopefully be much better. ;)

Mrazek wore his backpack tonight. He's carrying the team. Give the guy some run support already.

Another great GDT pic! Thanks for all your hard work. Make it two in a row. Let's Go Wings!

Tonight we open the nice bottle of scotch! Hooray


I will have a dram of the Macallan for each Wings goal when I watch the DVR of the game when I get home. Hopefully I put a huge dent in it to celebrate a win. So far so good it seems. ;)

I love his mullet, and his attitude.....MULLETTUDE!


/Raises a dram of the Macallan in salute to the epic awesomeness of Jagr's mulletude.


#2628472 Raffi Torres at it again.

The vid on TSN from the league explaining the suspension was pretty clear it was a head shot. Long overdue. He should have been banned from the the league earlier. As others have said, hopefully this forces him out of the league next year.

Tandem.


Agreed, having two solid goalies is not a bad thing.


#2627856 9/30 Exhibition GDT : Red Wings 7 at Penguins 2

Posted by TheXym on 01 October 2015 - 05:17 AM

Larkin scored 2(basically three) goals when matched up against Malkin, then he gets one goal and 2assists matched up against Crosby, and neither of them scored while he was matched up against them.
He's looking like a 1st line center already, I can see why they'd put him in grand rapids, but I'd like to see him start off the season in Detroit with top 6 minutes. If he's legitimately already capable of playing at a 1/2c level, he should stay up regardless of the circumstances, and I think hes earned a few games to see if he can be a top 6 c already.


Larkin is definitely looking like a stud. I'm honestly torn. If he is going to stay up, it shouldn't be in a fourth line role, IMHO. I think he (and the Wings) long-term would be better served by him being the stud 1C dominating in GR than only having spot duty in the NHL. The opportunity to further develop chemistry with Mantha and AA or Bertuzzi could lead to a line that has a bigger impact than Tampa Bay's vaunted triplets line. Pavel's injury does seem to leave a door open for him, though.


#2627785 Kane case headed to grand jury

Did you really suggest a cab in a Patrick Kane thread?


Someone had to put their twenty cents in. ;)


#2624490 Howard's New Mask

Posted by TheXym on 03 September 2015 - 06:07 AM

I read in the Malik Report that he has a lion tattoo that inspired the mask. Here's the link from In-Goal magazine that George posted.

If they put lions on Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall, and Green's helmets will that turn the power play into Voltron? Or is Jimmy trying to channel his inner Lion-O? (Sorry for the old '80's cartoon references, I haven't had my coffee yet today).
