In Topic: Rule Changes for 2014-2015 Season

Getting a tripping penalty even if you touch the puck first is garbage. There's athleticism and skill involved in taking a chance in acquiring the puck from an attacking player on the fly like that. What, now every breakaway will result in a penalty if the attacking player happens to fall down while the defenseman is trying to make a play?

The silence in the pauses during the Djurgarden chants is eerie and awesome. When we get chants going here it's never so precise.

For a long time I've wanted to try and put together some sort of European style song for Wings fans to sing at games. I think that would be a cool thing to pioneer in the league other than clap-clap clap-clap-clap or go "one syllable team name" go. Sadly I don't think it would stand much of a chance to catch on unless it came directly from Wings marketing and was played on the jumbotron.

In Topic: 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

I'm moving down in August. Is that Iodent you're in?

I'm in Kales. Great area to live. Great restaurants and events. Wonderful biking city. My buddies and I walk next door and scalp Tigers tickets for cheap halfway through games. Sure, there are a bunch of empty buildings around, and that is by no means a great thing, but I feel the people here embrace it as the city's aesthetic and character. It's part of the whole package.

I think the plans for construction will really attract further life down here once people realize how convenient and fun the area around the statiums is.

I've noticed it's the people in the suburbs who are usually pessimistic about downtown. I've been living here the past two years and it has been a blast. No one here is "waiting for a revival." It's already pretty awesome. I have no doubt these plans will make it better.


Here is the view from my apartment and you can see the lots along Woodward where the stadium will stand. You can see the FOX theater sign for a point of reference. I'll post more pictures once they start construction.
