#2564462 1/18 GDT : Sabres 4 at Red Wings 6 (Z w/Hat Trick)

Shhh were not allowed to say that. He's the chosen one.

I watched the highlights, everyone seemed way too comfortable in front of him.
Like,
"Hey no matter how many shots we let in, he's only going to give up two goals, so let's play like bull poo"
Type thing.
Ya know what I'm saying?
:lol:

This definitely isn't your older brother's Red Wings, folks.  

I don't even have an older brother...
Shows how much you know.


Oh and BTW.
Every time I see the ultimate warrior in real life, I say gmr to myself
Well. Stuff about him.
Not actually him.
Obviously.

I think by literary standards its a failure, because puns are lazy writing.
But by a drunken hockey forums standards, its a staggering success.

I've never been to the Joe. My dad and I want to go see a game before it closes as well. I've tried to convince other friends to go, but they're like "F that, i'm not going to Detroit!!!" LOL I know theres bad parts of that city, but if your going to a game i'm sure it's just fine.

Its honestly not that bad.
Especially around the Joe.
I don't recommend walking around the favilas at night, but around the Joe, is cobo, casinos and some pretty fancy shops and good restaurants.
Its not all mad max.

I really hope they come out and play hard tonight, I feel like this might be one of those measuring stick type games.

Yikes!  Think he'll be playing college hockey somewhere soon lol?

His name is julian kislin, but I haven't found too much on him other than that video, he was born in 99 so hes still got at least one probably two years of high school left...
But after this hell be on some teams radars for sure, if he wasn't already. whether its college or some form of junior league...

I also seen him listed as a defenseman.
Which if thats true its crazy that they have a kid that silky playing defense.

I never said they were similar, but Mickey loved a good scrap, enthusiastically; and if you listen to him, he subtly mourns the lack of team toughness without coming right out and saying the team is soft. 
 
Mickey has sorta been forced to. He calls Red Wings games; not a lot of hitting (at least on our part) or fighting. But when one does happen (rarely), what does he always say? "Attaboy! Not one person in their seat! They love it!", to paraphrase. He loves old time hockey as much as the rest of us neanderthals. 

But he's the first one to talk about how bad checks need to be taken out of the game, the only time I hear him get riled up about a fight is when its warranted...
Maybe that's because were watching the weakling wings, and fights are so few and far between that its easier to recall his reactions to fights back when the team was stacked with guys who were fighters.
Most of them, if not all had a scoring touch.. and very rarely attacked a player unwarranted.

Plus back then the knowledge of concussions and the effects it has on people quality of life was basically nonexistent...
And now that its been brought to the forefront and the science behind it all is coming along you can hear him changing his stance on it.

Slowly but surely.

And its not because hes been forced to change because of the way the wings play the game, its because he's smart, and doesn't want to see these kids suffering permanent brain problems because of stupid shenanigans.

He says it time and time again how the games gotten so fast, the players have gotten so much bigger, stronger, and faster that its infinitely more dangerous..

I've never heard him say atta boy to a bad hit, whether it bw from behind, or a hit to the head.
He says the same stuff about our team when they do it.
Like with Jurcos hit last year, he didn't defend it, he called it how it was.

None of this would have happened if McGrattan hadn't been on waiveerrrrzzzz.

I'd be the worlds most physical hockey playing mime.
And I'd take the puck and slam dunk it over the glass in my end to see if they'd give me a penalty.

And when I skate, I'd be trapped inside an invisible box, and if anyone every got inside my box id take off my shin pads and beat them down with the hard plastic and other pieces of my equipment including but not limited to; helmets, gloves, butt ends of sticks...

#2563057 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 13 January 2015 - 10:12 PM

 
He does.  And he should.  I agree, he's not great.  Certainly not the right handed, puck moving, saving grace that Detroit is supposedly interested in.  Which is why, if we're interested in him, we should wait until the offseason and sign him (rather than giving up assets in a trade). 

There was rumor that they only wanted a 2nd round pick for him.
But I think if that were the case he'd be moved already.
