#2302666 Illitch "definitely committed" to new downtown arena

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 22 May 2012 - 06:35 PM

I would hope for a modest 20,000 seats all together. As for a name, I am pining for The Delta Centre. Since taking over Northwest Airlines as the largest carrier in Detroit (in the 4th largest airport in the country) Delta hasn't done too much to become part of the community and really invest some money in Detroit the City outside of Romulus The Airport. The Utah Jazz used to have the Delta Center as the name of their arena, but that was years ago, it has since changed. With a brand new arena, and basically Delta still being "NEW" to the area (I know they flew in and out of here prior, but it was like 6 flights) this would be a great opportunity for both Ilitch and Richard Anderson (Delta CEO) to work together on this to help Detroit grow even more. Of course, with it being a Hockey Arena, I had to switch the ER to RE in CentRE to give it a more Canadian flavor, plus the words Delta Centre flow off the tongue pretty easily.

Then all the Airport Authority and the City of Detroit has to do is connect the city to the airport via an light rail with stops in Dearborn and Comerica/Ford Field and Casino's, then the city will finally start to turn the corner. You will have folks actually FLY in to go to a game, dinner, casino, ride the train back to the Airport the next day or same night, and go home. All that sounds like Cash to the City to me...but then again, there is the corrupt City Council and Anti-Union Bing to deal with and that is a whole other monster!

Mr. Ilitch, Mr. Anderson...The Delta Centre...get it done!

Will the building come with tsa????


#2297652 Johan Franzen wants to 'have more fun'

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 27 April 2012 - 04:38 PM

I agree with what franzen said. He's been too inconsistent and needs to work on that but he isn't lazy.

The wings have seemed to professional this season l. If they lighten up a bit they will have a lot more success

To be completely honest, I thought malkin's play was better. Only a little, but still better

Of course I voted for pasha though


#2295452 So Who Do You Cheer For Now?

Best case scenario for me:
La beats nsh in west finals
Wsh beats nyr in east finals

LA wins the cup for the first time ever!

La and nsh would be the ultimate goalie battle

I've been On many losing teams, so I know this feeling well. It's probably magnified because it's the Stanley cup playoffs and because he's a goalie.

I couldnt imagine being a goalie in this situation, even though he played well


#2291946 Will Detroit win this series?

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 18 April 2012 - 12:50 AM

I know a 3-1 lead in a series is almost impossible to overcome, but there is something about this team that tells me they will not go down. I still have faith in this team.

During the regular season we we're incredibly streaky (both good and bad). We often found ourselves in 1-6 game slumps only to follow it up with a winning streak of our own. This gives me reason to believe that we still have a chance in this series. I know that this is the playoffs and games are 10x harder to close out and mistakes can cost you a series, but we aren't a young team. We have the experience in big games. The wings play better when there backs are against the wall and when they are on the brink of elimination. That is why I still have faith in this team.

I know these following predictions may seem lofty but I see them as entirely possible. There are too many times where a team lets off the gas pedal and can't finish. That won't be the case with Detroit, they will finish strong.

GAME 5:
Detroit makes a statement and puts the pressure right back on Nashville.

DET [5-1] W


GAME 6:
Nailbiter game that could go either way, but Detroit wins at home.

DET [2-1] W


GAME 7:
This game will feature playoff hockey at its finest, with the highs and lows of everything you could imagine. Detroit wins in overtime.

DET [3-2 OT] W




Keys to Victory:
- Get the first goal
- Don't allow odd man rushes
- Limit turnovers
- Stay out of the penalty box
- Get 2nd chances on Rinne



Share your thoughts on how this series is going to turn out! (Try to stay positive and have faith)

I think there's very few of us optimists left on this thread! Wings in 7!!!!!


#2291939 WCQF Game Four GDT : Predators 3 at Red Wings 1

The wings played great. They lost because of 3 mistakes that ended up in their own net.

And blame rinne, not Howard. Howard played well tonight, but was a victim of being left out to dry a couple times.
- goal 1 was not his fault at all
- he was out of position on goal 2 but someone should have covered Klein
- goal 3 (which didn't really have an affect on the game) was all clearys fault


If they can solve rinne and gain some momentum, they can pull out of this hole

Edit: that's what she said on the second half of that last sentence :)

"good try boys?????" are you serious??? just check the pens Flyers game that's a GOODf****** try, wings sucked the entire game and please bring Branstrom back take this little f*** emerton out.

You clearly didn't watch the game so I would recommend that you look at the shot totals and maybe read some game stories.

I agree that emerton is not NHL ready, but they should call someone else up not brunnstrom

Also I'm happy that cleary is in playoff mode already. I didnt much like his regular season mode (I don't think anyone did)
