In Topic: Helm Finally Looking Like His Old Self!

That is funny (and sad) - we are all so used to having so much repeated news about a setback or new injury that it feels weird to have any stretch of a few games without one (or two or three)!!!!

In Topic: The 2014 Grand Rapids Griffins Offseason Gameplan

If by that you mean that Toledo is off the face of the earth, yes.  He's managed all of 0 goals, 16 assists, and a -18 +/- for the Walleye this season.  I would be surprised if he got a qualifying offer from the Wings in the offseason. 

Ouch! Thank you for the update. 3rd round picks with promise do not always pan out, as we all know.

In Topic: What is everyones second favorite team?

I've always had the Stars as my second favorite team. Being an old timer, I remember the days of Bobby Smith, Bill Goldsworthy, Dino Ciccarelli, Cesare Maniago, Danny Grant, Derian Hatcher, etc., and rolled over my fandom (distinctly second to the Wings) when they moved to Dallas. Having Jim Nill over there hasn't hurt the connection, either.

Has Max Nicastro fallen off the face of the earth? I am in New York, and haven't seen any talk of him on these boards or anywhere for awhile. Wasn't he thought of as a skilled, physical prospect once upon a time?

In Topic: bashing skid the kid

Aside from the so-called "past" diving and whining, the thing that always sticks with me is the instance a few years ago in the playoffs of his repeatedly chopping hard at the back of Z's legs with his stick on the way to their respective benches long after the particular play was whistled dead, and he thought that no one was looking (except he forgot - the broadcast cameras). I have seen him do this repeatedly over the years, and if he has stopped this lately, then fine and good, but can anyone honestly say that Datsyuk, Zetterberg, or Lidstrom would ever have done this?
