Topics I've Started

Excited fort he playoffs, (last year was the first one i really payed attention too, hopefully this year goes better).


Just curious if anyone know what happened to Xavier Ouellet. I thought he played very solid earlier in the year, and then when they brought up Marchenko everyone forgot about him. Why isn't he playing instead of Big E, or at least being rotated in .

Anaheim Deja Vu

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.



Podcast questions?

Hey anyone know any good Red Wings Podcasts? I love listening to stuff like that while I'm working, doing chores, and I'm still learning about hockey. Plus I like hearing people discuss this kind of thing.


I had a serious blast last year listening to the Octopod, and it helped me get up to speed real fast. But they aren't doing it again this year.


Right now I am subscribed to Winging it in Motown, but they only release one like once a month. I also listen to Red Wings SRD, but they are also real short and I blow through them fast.


So any Ideas I would much appreciate. Thanks.
