Babcock - Jack Adams Finalist

Congrats to Babcock, the best coach in hockey.




Too bad the ill-tempered blockhead from Colorado has this locked up.



Shooting The Puck

28 March 2014 - 02:00 PM

Lost in all the chaos of injuries and trying to make the playoffs, it just hit me:


We've got some forwards that can shoot the puck.






Pulkinen (if all goes well)

Mantha (ditto)


+ Z and Mule, and sometimes Datsyuk


Pretty cool eh?


I think the last time we had 4 forwards that could legitimately shoot the puck was in 2009 with Hossa, Z, Hudler, Mule.


I wonder if someday the Wings might stop constanly going back to the point in the O-zone hoping for a deflection or a screen from the ghost of Holmstrom.


More realistically, maybe this will someday put an end to the following combination of words: power play. Bertuzzi. net front.

Eaves and Glendening Recalled: Emmerton Sent Down

13 December 2013 - 01:51 PM

Per Official Detroit Red Wings (via Facebook)


Sorry, no link. My Interwebs are partially broken.


Glenfiddich most likely to replace Emmerton on the forth line. I wonder if Eaves is in for Sammy, Cleary or Bert?

Looking for advice/attending a Wings home game

26 November 2013 - 01:15 PM

Hey everyone,


Long-time LGWer here.


I'm taking my dad and brother to the Joe March 6th and 7th. This will be our first ever Wings home game. We're making the journey from the east coast of Canada so it's a biggish sort of deal.


I've been doing a s***-load of research in planning for this trip.


I just thought, since I have great respect for a lot of you, if anyone had any suggestions based on personal experience about the following:


1. Where to stay: I'm looking at Greektown Casino, Holiday Inn Express, Westin Book, and Doubletree Lafayette.


2. Best pre-game and post-game hangs for food and beer that have easy flow and access to the people movers.


I have read all there is to read on Trip Advisor, etc. But I want to hear what the LGWs hardcore locals had to say.


Pretty sure I have the rest covered but any other tourist tips, dos and don't, etc would be aprreciated.


I'll pay you back in advice if any of you are ever planning to travel to Atlantic Canada (which is beautiful, by the way) ;)


Mods, feel free to move this to where ever it should be.


Thanks all!!

Holland Interview

20 November 2013 - 01:44 PM



10 minutes long. Worth a listen. Do yourself a favour, it's not quite your typical Kenny-speak.




- he's not in a good mood. you can tell

- possible that Nyquist gets called up as early as tomorrow. "possible"

- says kids aren't the answer, this is a man's league

- makes a decent point: says look at Nyquist and Jurco, etc, they're generating points with tons of PP minutes which they wouldn't be getting in Detroit; says that's a role that young kids have to "grow into"

- when asked about FA signings was careful to point out that we haven't seen enough games out of the full team he built over the summer.

- ended the interview by saying: some of the FA signings haven't performed as well as I expected they would, and that's on me"


I suggest you listen to this interview before you start your Holland rants in this thread.
