I always liked the Hartford Whalers before they got moved. Every time I hear brass bonanza I think of some ol time hockey.

In Topic: Red Wings popularity in Detroit/Michigan

Weren't the Wings a lot more popular in Detroit in the late 90's, than they are today?


If you asked this question in 95 the answer would be the Wings no.1 hands down. This town was so cup crazy, with that ridiculous drought and how good that team was in the regular season it was gonna be our year. I want Stanley playing on the radio, wings flags from every car it was a beautiful thing till we got swept. Which made finally winning it in 97 all that much more gratifying and to this day I've never seen this town more excited for one team then for the Wings back then. Of course after winning it a few times fans got spoiled and Yzerman and the old school retiring left a disconnect for awhile. Now with the Lions and Tigers being good and still without a title for a long time that hunger has shifted to them and the Wings being good is just old hat now. Just a side note being in Chicago and watching this city after they won their first cup in ages paled in comparison to how crazy Detroit was in 97.

I think the context of the game had a lot to do with it as well. A game filled with fights previously and a blow out score and the team that's up disrespects the goalie and rubs their nose in the fact they're getting blown out. I can see easily why the kid went off the handle so I think the punishment originally given out was fair and criminal charges would be going way overboard.

Where is Art Regner when you need him, he would talk hockey all the time, even had his own show that just talked wings, ice time I do believe. Years ago though back when sports radio had a soul and wasn't as coperatate and nationally driven even from a local perspective.

In Topic: Eddie Olczyk is very quiet

Was that before or after he said Toews was as good on the puck as Dats, cmon man. I know Mickey is a homer byt Eddie makes it pretty well known with his compliments to the Hawks and once in a blue moon nod to a wings player. Pretty telling when we got up 3-1 and Eddie barely said a word, did you watch the same broadcast?

I've been watching all the games and I've found Olczyk to be unbiased and very complimentary of the Wings.
