Topics I've Started

Pet Names

07 October 2013 - 12:04 PM

I'm planning on buying a dog and I'm trying to come up with a name (Red Wings related) and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas / suggestions for me... Keep in mind, I'm not sure if it will be a male or female yet...

 

So far I've come up with a few possibilities including:

 

Zetty or Zäta (Zetterberg) - being one of my favorite players and the captain for the next 8+ years, it's kinda fitting.

 

Pasha (Datsyuk) - another one of my favorite players, I really like this one as well.

 

Howie (Howard) - I love Howard but not sure if I'm in love with the name.

 

Helmer (Helm) - I love Helm but who knows what kind of career he is going to have when / if he fully recovers from all of these injuries.

 

Abby (Abdelkader) - I kinda like the name, probably better suited for a female.

 

Sammy (Samuelsson) - just as well call him / her s*** face.

 

Kronner (Kronwall) - not a bad name.

 

Jurco - probably my favorite name, as well as one of my favorite prospects. I would just really have to hope that he becomes the player I think he will be.


Tickets to the Joe

06 March 2013 - 10:48 PM

Hey, I'm looking to buy a couple tickets for a game next month. I'm thinking about the San Jose game on the 11th but I'm not sure yet. Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone has any tickets for sale or knows anyone or anywhere I can buy tickets at or around center ice in the lower bowl?... Possibly in the 107, 108, 121, 122 range... Is there a local classifieds website for the Michigan area where people can buy and sell tickets?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)


Red Wings' Future

20 February 2013 - 09:18 AM

I was looking at Hockey's Future - Red Wings prospects and our "Prospect Talent" seems to be pretty accurate with Gustav Nyquist and Brendan Smith leading the charge, rated at 8/10, Petr Mrazek, Calle Jarnkrok, Teemu Pulkkinen, Tomas Jurco and Tomas Tatar behind them at 7.5/10. But then I looked at the "Probability Of Success" and I noticed something very obscure. Our prospects with the best chance to succeed are Brendan Smith and Rasmus Bodin... I'm not too familiar with this kid, other than we drafted him in the 6th round, 200th overall last year. He plays for Tranås AIF in Division 1 in Sweden, which is the number 2 league in Sweden under Elitserien. He's a big body at 6'6", 207lbs and is often compared to a grinding, Abdelkader type player. So why is this kid more likely to succeed than guys like Petr Mrazek, Ryan Sproul, Xavier Ouellet, Mattias Backman, Calle Jarnkrok, Teemu Pulkkinen, Tomas Jurco, Martin Frk, Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar, etc, etc... Is it just because of his towering frame? Does this kid really have that much upside?...

 

Also...

1. What prospect(s) are you most excited about?

2. What prospect(s) do you see as a dark horse?

3. What prospect(s) do you see as over rated

 

I would say...

1. Calle Jarnkrok / Ryan Sproul

2. Andreas Athanasiou

3. Landon Ferraro
