#2576874 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 01 March 2015 - 08:28 PM

Hope he sounds more excited when we interview him  :confused:




I'm sure he's kind of bewildered in a way and once it sets in he'll feel fantastic he was traded to the greatest sports organization in the world  :w00t:

#2571491 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by Echolalia on 17 February 2015 - 12:34 PM

I took it as more Kenny joking around because there was such a long period with no whistles. Or maybe Mickey wanted to say chime in and something but couldn't because of the ongoing action and Kenny knew that (after all, they can see each other and their body language whereas we only have their voices to go off of). Anyway I don't think there's any animosity between them because they typically have excellent chemistry and often joke around. I want to say that Kenny and Mickey celebrated Thanksgiving or Christmas or something recently, but I might be misremembering.
I also love all that Mickey has to offer as a color commentator. He is an entertaining individual, not the cookie-cutter type of boring, safe personality that you see so often in sports. The guy is passionate, and what I love the most about him is that he comes off as a fan of the game of hockey moreso than a fan of the Red Wings. Sure he loves the Wings, and it's his job to pass out praise to our team, but he doesn't shy away from passing out praise to players or coaches from other teams, hates weak penalties regardless of who gets the power play, and hates dangerous plays and dives regardless of who's doing them. It's good to have that kind of voice on tv, I think, instead of the mindless homer who puts his team above all others regardless of the situation as well as the game of hockey itself.

The dads (and several thousand Wings fans) celebrate Abdelkader's goal.



#2562043 McGratton on waivers

Posted by rick zombo on 09 January 2015 - 02:48 PM


If I were Buffalo I'd claim him, and the next time I played Boston I'd finally pay Lucic back for running over Ryan Miller. 


Then I'd waive him again. 


Then Detroit could claim him, and pay Lucic back for spearing DeKeyser, then wave him.


Then Montreal could..............

I hope not one team claims him

#2557405 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by hooon on 17 December 2014 - 01:55 AM

Honestly, next shootout they should just throw Mrazek in cold and have Quincey, Ericsson and Al Sobotka as the shooters, because, what the hell, right?

I guess a positive is that now when we hear Weiss is hurt, it's a bad thing.

You could invert that list and make it look more sensical.
