commodore will step up for our players when we need him to. i remember a game a few years back against the blue jackets he stepped in to a scuffle with rick nash. i dont think hell be dirty or get out of line but i do think he will "protect" our key players.

friday nights are dollar beer/hot dog nights.
if you come during art prize thats pretty cool.

hes solid. he gets better every year and will continue to do so. tim thomas, he came out of nowhere in his early 30s, as mentioned earlier howard isnt broduer in his prime but i feel that he will continue to work hard and refine his skills and will come out with a similar career to the likes of someone like thomas, never a gem but hard work and a good team sticking to the game plan will bring many exciting and long stretches into the playoffs and a cup or two.

about the soft goal debate, i could be totally wrong but i think that if the nay sayers watched another teams goalie as much as they do redwings games they would see just as many slippery goals that should have never gone in.

the trio we have going with howard conklin and macdonald is good im confident that they can come up big for us this year.

im all about it, 750k for the year is a great deal. he was good in detroit i became a big fan when he was behind ozzie. if he plays 20-30 games in net i think he can handle that load well enough to get maybe 60% of them in the win column.
