Babcock's Job?

19 December 2013 - 12:47 PM

Does anyone think his job is in danger? I mean, each year they've done worse in the playoffs. Can he inspire his players?

Saw Steve Yzerman at the Plymouth Whalers Game Tonight

12 April 2013 - 10:58 PM

Why would he be at that game? Scouting players would be an obvious reason, but he doesn't have any connection to the Whalers, does he? What was funny was that as he walked thru the crowd, it seemed as though he was trying to keep his head down so that no one would spot him, and believe it or not, most of the people didn't even notice him. That shows you how unobservant most people are!

OT? Remember Lange hockey skates?

13 March 2013 - 10:34 AM

This may not be the ideal forum, but I was wondering if people remember using the old Lange plastic boot skates. Mainly I was wondering about the sizing. Did you drop down a size or 2 or did they fit like shoes? TIA

Will the NHL Ever Go to a Wider Rink?

13 February 2013 - 08:48 PM

If the Wings or other teams go to new arenas, would it be smart to go to the bigger ice surface? Now that the league has so many Europeans, and better skaters over all, wouldn't it be better that they have the bigger surface to maneuver? Even back in the '72 Summit Series, the Canadiens seemed to do better on the bigger ice; they won 3 of the four games in Moscow even though the Soviets were better skaters. I'd rather see end to end action rather than clutching and grabbing on the boards.

Do We Really Need a New Stadium?

09 February 2013 - 07:18 PM

JLA is only 30 years old. What exactly is inadequate about it? The problem with this throwaway society is that people always want a new toy. Look at the Silverdome. People were crazy about it; it recently sold for $500,000 or something like that. The Italians could somehow get 2000 years out of a stadium/structure, but we want a new one every few years.  Maybe we should replace Comerica Park, I mean it's more than 10 years old.
