#2652227 First time visitor to Detroit

Posted by captain2005 on 12 February 2016 - 12:33 PM

Hey guys, just touched down last night, first time in Detroit,here to see them smash the Aves. Any suggestions on good bars or restaurants to go to before or after a game?


Really enjoying this city, everyone is so friendly, it's awesome.

I couldn't get the South Park song out of my head. Trying to think of a clever title. I just wanted to share excitement for my games I'm going too.

#2627851 Goalie Battle

Posted by captain2005 on 01 October 2015 - 03:21 AM

goalies Mrazek and Howard have played in three preseason games each. Howard: 2.00 GAA and .943 SV%; Mrazek: 2.38 GAA and .929 SV%


Just read this, I'm sure some of you have as well. Just thought it was interesting.


For the record, I'm a fan of both, but really like Howard, and feel kind of bad for him last year, so I'm hoping he can still hopefully pull it out, and extend his career.

#2624863 Need a little Abdelkader help please

Posted by captain2005 on 07 September 2015 - 02:23 PM

Ladies and gents, I am about to buy my girlfriend her first Jersey. I've been trying to get her to pick a player, and she is really adamant about getting Abdelkader. Great, I love him, but I don't want to spend the 180$ on a jersey for a guy who might not be with the team next year. 



I've been trying to talk to her about getting Dekeyser, or Nyquist or Sheahan just because I figure they are guaranteed to be on the team longer. She really wants number 8 though.


So my question, what are the odds he resigns? If he doesn't does it really matter? Is it considered poor to wear a jersey for a guy not on the team anymore?


Thanks any feedback welcome. Also any recomendations on websites to order from?

Wings in 3

That's what I was gonna say next. Beaten to my own punchline. Go Wings Go. I want to see Zetterberg make Stamkos cry like he did Toews a couple of years ago. We have the best captain in the NHL

Wings in 6 baby

I see your wings in 6, and raise you  Wings in 5 baby. ;)

I couldn't sleep :





That is so fantastic. Kudos. Using it as my backdrop on my computer. Bravo. PS is that Howard or Mrazek? I'm sure I should be able to tell, but Im still a newbie to this whole, "Hockey" thing.

#2586705 3/29 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Islanders 5

Pretty bad when me as a Mrazek fan even gets blasted on after I say three times now he wasf****** up tonight... he played s***ty tonight. Thats the 4th and last time I am going to say it tonight. Lets hope s***stain can stop the bleeding.

No one really cares what you think honestly. I don't understand how you are making a hockey game about a team we all like and are all trying to root for about you. Listen, if Mrazek plays well, or poorly like today, you have nothing to do with it. You can be a fan and enjoy his performance, but you have no bearing on what he does, and you are not accomplishing anything when he does. Inversely it's the same for Howard. When he plays bad no one thinks your a genius.

#2581340 3/14 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Flyers 7

Posted by captain2005 on 14 March 2015 - 01:57 AM

I like to watch games with my dad, but they always seem to play mediocre when I do that. My dad has often commented that Datsyuk and Zetterberg are completely invisible. Which upsets me cause I love the Z, but he's not usually wrong.

#2580551 Gus injured; Mrazek re-called

Posted by captain2005 on 10 March 2015 - 06:39 AM

You mean the one where Jimmy let in two in the first and then the wings didn't score a goal all game and Boston won 3-0 with an en at the end of the game. Ya really fell apart in the third.

Yeah, that's the one he meant. Totally supported his argument right? What was his argument?  That Gustavsson's not Great. I think that was the point.

Crispy crunchety Zetterberger? :eh:

#2575748 Anaheim Deja Vu

Posted by captain2005 on 28 February 2015 - 12:53 AM

This made me feel a bit better about the team. Anaheim just did the same thing they did to us to the Kings. Down by two, and scored three in the third. Unlike us though, the Kings couldn't tie it up and get a point, Anaheim just potted the empty netter. Makes me feel all warm inside could be the Rye though.


All in all, win or lose tomorrow against Nashville I'm happy with how they played. I kept hearing doom and gloom, and if they could just break 500 against the other teams on this road trip we would be happy. They might have been ugly wins, mostly come from behind, but I am almost more thrilled by that. The fact that they never act like they are out of the game.


Beating Chicago was too sweet, especially in shoot out like they did. Somehow working their way back into the Dallas game. Sucks to lose to Anaheim, but they are a great game, and if anything the 40 minutes of dominance made me thrilled, losing to LA, on a six game win streak sucks, but they are a dangerous team and it's not like the Wings were manhandled. And then to come from behind against the Sharks.


I feel good about this team, and even more about the future seasons. Should just be up from here. I like our team, I like our Goalie (sorry Howard haters, he's a good man) and I love Red Wings hockey.


Sorry for the rant, just started watching two seasons ago. Last year was super stressful. Good year to get into it but more frustrations than this year. This year has felt great. I am like the only Red Wings fan in my circle (slowly converting my Dad and Girlfriend, Dog is already on board) so this is a good support group for me most times. I can't believe I never watched hockey before, but damn it what a sport. I mostly love it so much because this god damn team. Thank you for your time one and all.



#2560257 1/3 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Canucks 4

Posted by captain2005 on 03 January 2015 - 03:38 AM

I will be attending. It is my first game live. I just got my first Hockey Jersey. Got a Zetterberg away colors. I can't wait. I hope they just kill them, oh god please. I hate the Canucks.


Everyone, tell me they've got this.

#2554304 12/6 GDT : Rangers 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by captain2005 on 06 December 2014 - 07:49 PM

If there is any night to do it, I guess this is the one with Montreal and Columbus both losing. Hopefully they do and we can keep pace. Or just come out with a win and pull ahead. I believe in them, and wouldn't change them for any other team. Come on Z.

#2552711 11/30 GDT - Canucks 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by captain2005 on 30 November 2014 - 06:13 AM

Please someone tell me we can beat the Canucks. I live in Kelowna, it's about a 4 hours drive from Vancouver. They have some of the most irritating goddamn fans in the world. Bunch of delusional band wagon jumping know nothing crybabies.  I will be absolutely devastated if we can't beat them. Our goalie plays better. We have more heart, and they haven't beaten us in regulation in like three years. And my dog is wearing her lucky Red Wings collar and bandana (Dekeyser is her favorite). So someone give me some support, tell me how they will grind them out. LGRW
