Not sure if this has been discussed, but with Mickey now doing the Ram commercials this season, is his speech during the commercial a slight dig at Franzen?

"...It's like everyone else is playing shorthanded and that's no place for a nervous person."

lol - you wanna see some bad fans?
 
Go to the UC with Red Wings gear on.

Haven't watched the Wings there since 2009. From what I've heard the Blackhawk "fans" have gotten just awful toward any opposing fan. Had a friend get told to, in not such nice words, to get the eff out of town for wearing an Ovechkin T-shirt to last years Caps game at the UC. The friend lives in Oak Lawn (just outside Chicago).

It's even bad at the Chicago Wolves games when the Rockford IceHogs play. The home fans are called *******, assholes, "how can you root for those Blues (was Vancouver) players?" etc. all by the Blackhawk "fans" that show up to root for the IceHogs.

You can tell the "fans" from the actual Blackhawk fans, because the actual fans are more respectful to opposing fans and don't think their team is an expansion franchise from 2008.

I know every fan base has the very small handful of idiots that ruin the game for others, but the United Center currently makes the jerks and ****** bros in the bleachers at Cubs games look like choir boys.

The Joe WAS packed against the Hawks. It won't be as packed tonight.

 

That's because it's cheaper to drive from Chicago, buy two Wings tickets, pay for gas, pay for a hotel room, and drive back than it is to get two tickets to the United Center.

 

As a Wings fan stuck in Hockey Hell... I mean Chicagoland... I'd rather drive to Detroit for games anyway.


In Topic: Jersey Sponsorship

Not so fast...

Individual AHL teams have had this for years. Griffins have had a Cintas patch for the last few seasons. Chicago Wolves w/ Kia. The Milwaukee Admirals with the Milwaukee Brewers.

If anything, it will be sized like the Cintas patch on the Griffins or the Amway patch on the practice jerseys and the Wings will likely have: Cintas, Amway, Kroger, Belle Tire, or Ram Trucks on the patch.

I can't see them going all out Euro Hockey/Soccer before milking companies for sponsorship like the AHL does first.

In Topic: Gustavsson injured

How is it a dislocated shoulder? Or did he injure that reaching for the actual injury?

It looked like a textbook Kari Lehtonen-esque groin pull.
