Decline the PP, take 2 minutes off the clock and continue 5 on 5.

Here's a fun fact. Since Larkin and AA are both so fast, they will actually age slightly slower than everybody else to Einstein's Theory of Relativity :thumbup:

So I just got back from the game.  I was "lucky" enough to witness yet another disaster.  Third game in a row that I've been to that the Wings have given up 5+ goals.  Blah.  I didn't get many pics of Wings players.  I got these tickets as a birthday present for my Mom, who hasn't been to a hockey game since 93 and is a huge Pens fan.  So I mostly got pics of her salivating over Letang.  :rolleyes:


Pros: I thought we controlled most of the play in the first until that garbage bounced off Helm and into the net. Then it went downhill.  Guys never gave up, Z scored a nice goal near the end.  I don't know if you could tell on TV, but there was a lot of red in the crowd.  More than I'm used to seeing at a Pens game.  Even my Mom was like "Are we in Detroit or something?"  That was nice to see.  My Mom, of course, enjoyed her present and all 6 goals.  XO looked decent and the Nyquist line looked good.


Cons: Mrazek got lit up again.  Seems like we're in another slump.  Hopefully break out soon.  If I never hear that effin goal horn again, it won't be soon enough.  Some idiot tried to start something with me in the first period, yelling "Hey!  ***hole!  ***hole in the Zetterberg jersey!  Your Wings f***ing suck!  Hey, I'm talkin to you, ***hole!"  So classy.  I didn't even acknowledge his existence.  It was just annoying to hear him talk crap after every goal and boo obnoxiously loud after each Wings goal.  I wanted to respond, but yeah, sitting next to my Mom, probably not the best time to get into that kind of thing.  Plus, the Wings weren't exactly giving me anything to shove back in his face.


Overall, probably not the best hockey experience of my life, but my Mom was thrilled with her present and anytime I get to see the Wings in person is a good thing.

Not in, but if we keep doing that, maybe the next one will be.

Is it the 1980s again?


Goals! Goals! Goals!

But a more serious question...Where are the goons?

I wish Tangradi would get a 10-game stretch on the Wings' 4th line. Let's see what a big body with some snarl can do on this team.

#2650417 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

I've seen this posted in the All-Star thread butI think it deserves it's own thread because the ASG thread will be full with ASG talk saturday.








But at the same time: this isn’t Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I’m not some random person off the street, and I didn’t win a golden ticket to “play hockey with the stars.” I won an internet fan vote, sure. And at some point, without question, it was a joke. It might even finish as a joke. But it didn’t start as one. It started with a very small pool, out of a very small pool, out of the very, very smallest pool of hockey players in the world: NHLers. That was the vote. A fan vote, an internet vote — but a vote from among the 700 or so best hockey players in North American professional sports.

And I’m one of them.

If the league thought this was an embarrassment, pretty much all of the players I’ve encountered have thought otherwise. I’ve gotten texts from so many guys saying the same thing: “You should go.”

And that didn’t happen because of the internet. I busted my ass to be one of them. I’ve skated every day since I was three years old to be one of them. I’ve persevered through Juniors roster cuts, Alaskan bus rides, Advanced Dynamics exams, and — yes — fights, to be one of them.

But I’m one of them. And that means a lot to me.

It means a lot to my family.


So when someone from the NHL calls me and says, “Do you think this is something your kids would be proud of?”

… That’s when they lost me.



Goes to show you what a bunch of mean spirited, disgusting idiots the NHL has in their front-office and what a SOB Don Maloney was in that whole situation. I hope the players help him score some goals as a big F U to the NHL.


I'm also loving the phrase " a guy like me" - whatever people may think about John Scott and his role the fact is, he is one of 700 NHL players, period. If some suit wearing idiot would have told me on how to be a dad and what MY kids might be proud of I don't know if I would have responded as friendly as Scott did, so huge kudos to him.


Smart and great guy NHL needs more John Scotts and less idiots in their headquarter.
