#2651297 Flyers/Penguins Winter Classic 2011....I mean 2017

Posted by Echolalia on 06 February 2016 - 06:01 PM

I'm officially at the point where these things don't excite me anymore. Even if the Wings were playing next year I just don't see myself getting pumped over them. Which is a shame cuz ir was the best thing to happen to hockey for a while. At least someone's making a ton of money off them still.

#2651296 Should the Red Wings Trade for Byfuglien?

As long as he's willing to sign a contract I'd want him in a heartbeat. Because I heart Big Buf.

Athanasiou on the PK.   If I can't have Miller there, I like Athanasiou.


Also, I love being back in Detroit and having the CBC on regular television.

That's more like it. How about they not wait so many games before scoring 4 goals again?

Big Buff in Detroit would be awesome sauce.

#2650840 ROY according to LGW

If I had to put money on it - just by the way things have played out I'm going to go ahead and say that Larkin will win the Calder for sure (100%). He's simply attracted way too much attention at this point. 


Unless he hits a wall the second half of the season that is. 


“Lots of people talk about the wall and the NHL schedule is certainly difficult and can be a grind for sure, whether you played college or junior or any of that,” Blashill said. “I don’t believe in the wall. I think if you allow yourself to hit a wall, you hit a wall, but I don’t believe it has to happen. 

“I look at what Dylan did last year. If you think about the experience he went through last year – playing college hockey as a freshman (at Michigan), playing in the world junior tournament (for the United States), finishing his year, having to make an extremely difficult life decision, playing in the worlds, coming to Grand Rapids and playing in the (AHL Calder Cup) playoffs – there isn’t going to be a more excruciating year than that.

Yeah. Ofcourse it's not an official speed skating contest and rather a hockey fastest skating comp. The ability to handle the obstacles (tight rink, hockeystick in your hand, sharp turn with reduced frictional forces with to a lack of ramp) and do it fast is what it's about. 

As I read your comment, just realized that it is a Hockey contest, and not an overall test designed to see how fast a human being can be on the ice, but rather to see how well a hockey player does in a designated course and under that set of conditions

Anyone think Helm could beat Larkin's new record?




one thing i never understood about that event is you had the fastest skater competition but a couple of the fastest skaters in the NHL can't go because they are not "All-Stars" so the statistics really don't mean too much from that standpoint.

Ericsson is NOT terrible. He just isn't a top pairing defenseman like he's oftentimes been used over the past few years...

He's not top 4 either. He's maybe a 5 or 6. Way too many mistakes every game.

Wish I understood the language. Wonder what Z said about him there at 20 min.

He said that he's been fortunate to play with one of the best players in the world (Datsyuk) for his entire career, and then he said that Datsyuk know this is swedish television, so he will say the "right things" and what they want to hear (laughs). Then the reporter ask about his role in the success of Datsyuk to which he replys "not much at all to be honest, he would have won those awards without me" (laughs again).
