#2325394 12-13 Biggest Surprise

Posted by SoupSnake on 15 August 2012 - 06:20 PM

Youre spot on with the first 12. But #13 is Emmerton. And there will be revolving injuries that allow him to play.

We get it Cory, you really want to play for the Wings this year. Any other year and you might have a chance but there are just too many guys ahead of you that are better. Now get off of LGW and go skate a few laps to get ready for whoever picks you up off of waivers.

Never seen a better punch than this one. Mute your speakers if you hate annoying music though.

#2323067 Wings & Yandle twitter-rumors? Believable?

Swap Emmerton or Kindl for Nyquist and I would pull the trigger.

#2308400 Pavel and his girlfriend at the NHL Awards

Posted by SoupSnake on 21 June 2012 - 08:58 AM

I just spent 15 minutes trying to dig up an old thread but couldn't find it anywhere. A few months ago somebody posted something about Pavel and his daughter and somebody posted something speculating that the reason Pavel wasn't playing up to his usual level was because he had gone through a divorce or something like that. Obviously we all love these guys, and we shouldn't spend too much time prying into their personal lives but it really bugged me because Pavel is a great guy and I truly hope he is happy.

Anyway it looks like we can put that rumor to rest because as you can see below, the happy couple was on the red carpet together last night. I'm guessing Mrs. Datsyuk just isn't a big fan of the spotlight and that is why we don't see her too often.

Maybe nobody else cares about this, but I was really happy to see this picture. Like I said, Pavel is a great guy and a hope he has a long life of happiness.

#2306203 Winter Classic Prices Announced

Posted by SoupSnake on 09 June 2012 - 01:00 PM

I updated the OP with this as well but apparently there will be no tickets available to the general public.

UPDATE: Apparently there will be NO public sale of tickets for this game.

No tickets to the public expected...corporate sponsors get first dibs then going to season ticket holders of the Red Wings, GR Griffins, Plymouth Whalers (plus Leafs, Marlies, and Sting) second as a way to boost their season ticket sales. Each of those can purchase up to 4 tickets.

Plus, you'll have to buy a GLI ticket for every Classic ticket.

Alumni game information not published yet.


"According to an email Josh Howard received from the Grand Rapids Griffins, there will be no public sale of Winter Classic tickets:

As we enter our beautiful summer months, we are looking forward to our 17th Season this year. We have some exciting events coming up this year including the Winter Classic Game between the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs. There will be no public sale for this event and the Griffins are one of the only places you can purchase tickets to this historic event. Tickets will be made available to many of our ticket plan holders"

#2303821 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

What if Ken Holland sticks to his word and retires with Lids? That could be really bad... or just fine. I think Nill or Yzerman would do just fine as replacements.

#2279840 Wings meet Preds in First Round

Posted by SoupSnake on 07 April 2012 - 03:13 PM

Fil seems to play really well against the Preds. Hopefully he will be the difference maker in this series. I can't really see us being intimidated by the Preds which is a nice way to start the Playoffs.

#2279511 4/7 GDT : Blackhawks 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by SoupSnake on 07 April 2012 - 01:36 PM

when do we call up the black aces? wouldn't mind seeing Smith, Conner, Brunstrom, etc getting some looks.

#2279358 4/7 GDT : Blackhawks 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by SoupSnake on 07 April 2012 - 12:57 PM

i would feel 1000x better about this team if Helm and Eaves were in the lineup :/

#2279181 4/7 GDT : Blackhawks 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by SoupSnake on 07 April 2012 - 12:13 PM

He broke a guys teeth. That deserves 4 mins

#2276256 Tomas Holmstrom's fate

Posted by SoupSnake on 31 March 2012 - 09:31 PM

I don't even see how Babcock can justify playing him over anyone else once Helm comes back. He's pretty much dead weight on the 4th line. If he wasn't on the top PP line there wouldn't be any reason to play him.

#2273904 Nashville at Chicago GDT

Posted by SoupSnake on 25 March 2012 - 02:57 PM

Settling for 6th place would be disgraceful. I'm sure that isn't the mindset that the team has, and I won't think that way either.

#2273846 Nyquist needs to stay here

Posted by SoupSnake on 25 March 2012 - 08:45 AM

I kind of hope to see Homer in the press box once Franzen gets back. It would be a shame to see him in the line up over Nyquist. Homer is a warrior and he has served the team well over the years, but he has no place on the fourth line, or on any line really.
