#2254407 How WC tickets will be sold

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 February 2012 - 05:04 PM

Would they be able to sell them at the premium Leafs fans will pay? This won't just be tickets at regular NHL prices, there will be a significant mark-up.

:blink:

So....what you are saying is that Leafs fans are more well-to-do than Red Wings fans?


Just because there will be a mark-up doesn't mean Leafs fans are the only ones who can afford it...I would say 99.999999999% of Wings fans do not live in the City and as a matter of fact, a ton of them live in Oakland County which is one of the wealthiest counties in the Nation....

Clutch better show up tonight...he better dominate. We need our scorers to score, Clutch, The Worm are on the hotstove tonight!

Avoiding the mention of Jiri Hudler’s name, or the fact the Detroit Red Wing worm smashed Sharp’s wrist with a vicious slash


:hysterical: This guy has never even watched Hudler play! Huder? Visious? Oh that hurts, stop I am laughing so hard!

I do like the name Worm for Jiri though! I think if a worm had a face, it would be Jiri's! (quick someone photoshop it!)

:hysterical: at the CBC broadcast saying Kronwall got 4 minutes for roughing and that he elbowed Hemsky in the head...were they watching the same game?

Good Night Hockey Fans!

Guess Babcock had no confidence in Clutch either.....

Let me guess, our #2 goal scorer, for Nabakov???

Filppula is going nowhere.

Hudler and Conklin for Nabokov.

Need Nabokov to be goalie 1b.....


#2251864 Howard has broken finger, Joey Mac recalled

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 February 2012 - 01:38 PM

Time to acquire Nabokov. Ya, this may be a minor inury, but if something happens in April, we wont win with Conklin/MacDonald.


#2251427 Your All-Favorites Red Wing Team?

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 February 2012 - 08:58 PM

Put together your own all-Red Wings team. The best guys that you've actually ever seen on the ice out there.

Me (I was born in 1987):

Shannahan-Datsyuk-Fedorov
Zetterberg Sheppard-Yzerman-Hossa
Clark Robitaille-Larionov-Hull
Probert Kozlov-Primeau Lapointe-McCarty Brown
Franzen Gallant

Lidstrom-Konstantinov
Coffey-Chelios
Kronwall Fetisov-Murphy
Rafalski Larson

Hasek
Vernon Osgood
Howard

Bowman
Demers

Those are my changes to your already great lineup! I also need to mention Adam Oates and Adam Graves, both of whom played here before their prime, but I would have loved to have on this team for their career!


#2251375 Rick Nash?

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 February 2012 - 05:01 PM

Again, if it involves trading Filppula, then I am not happy about it. I would offer them Hudler for sure and a number of prospects and picks, but not Filppula and not Smith.


#2251367 Rick Nash?

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 February 2012 - 04:49 PM

Rick Nash would be great, but no to Filppula or Smith going to Columbus. Filppula is too valuable to this team, and with the chance that BOTH Lidstrom and Stuart will be gone next year, this team needs Smith to come in and be that solid #4-5 defenseman.

He is signed thru 2018 for a hit of $7.8M per season. That would take us out of the Parise sweepstakes and it have to have Lidstrom retire for sure if we have any hopes of getting Suter...


#2251266 Vancouver Sun article on why no one hates the Wings

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 February 2012 - 10:39 AM

The only thing I remember reading about anyone being truely unhappy with the Wings was Curtis Joseph after we apparently treated him like crap. I think he said something to the effect that his years in Detroit were the worst of his career.

He sure loved his $8,000,000 a year though...
