Larkin Rafters


#2638344 When does Larkin get the C?

I think Larkin needs to show more discipline in the stupid penalty department before we start considering stripping our team's leading scorer of the captaincy to give it to this kid.

#2636754 Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

First Miller (you're wrong) and now this (you're right). You enjoy putting a target on your back, Bill. Get ready to duck.


I agree with your assessment of Holland. His success is the product of the '89 draft, Andersson, Bowman, and Nill.


You know what Ken Holland was doing during the fabled class of 1989 draft?  Scouting and drafting them.  He was the Director of Amateur Scouting.  You know what those other guys where doing for the Wings organization in 1989?  Nothing.  They didn't work here yet. 


If you're going to attribute his success to that class, fine.  Give him credit for scouting and drafting them since, ya know, he did that.  He's literally the only person you mentioned who had anything at all to do with getting those guys into Red Wings sweaters.

Thoughts? Yeah, the league isn't out to get the Wings.

So in other news water is wet, grass is green and the sky is blue

#2633278 Mike Green out 2-3 weeks

He got hit behind our net in the first period of the calgary game....




(there's a video in there)


I know that "technically" that's a clean hit, but I'm with Mickey Redmond in saying that I hate that hit. It's hard for a defenseman to make that play and see the guy coming. And the only way a forwatd makes that kind of hit is if he's trying to hurt someone.

#2632814 Where Are The W-L Results?

Posted by rick zombo on 24 October 2015 - 12:21 PM

If you're looking for W-L results, any hockey website should have them. Like nhl.com or tsn for example. Many of these sites also include breakdowns of OT loses, SO loses, etc. You should be able to find playoff records there too.

#2632348 Joke of the week: NHL Department of Player Safety

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 22 October 2015 - 05:17 PM

I actually agree with the ruling. The head snaps back, which makes it look bad, but that whiplash from what I see.


It is kind of a dick move to hit a player when they're pinned against another one of your players. Don't think there's any rule against that, though.

NHL lockouts are like the purge.

Horrible for entertainment purposes?

#2613894 Here we go AGAIN - Coyotes, part DUH!

Posted by Echolalia on 10 June 2015 - 02:18 PM

Nothing says "successful location" like having to win Cups constantly in order to hold more than a few thousand fans' interest.  A good location should be pulling in at least a decent amount even when the team struggles.  Yes, attendance and sales go down when teams suck, but the "real" franchises still get someone to show up.


While I agree its probably time to give up on Phoenix, or Arizona, or whatever, I do think its worth mentioning that it wasn't all that long ago that Mike Illitch had to give away cars to get people into seats at Joe Louis arena.

#2607550 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 13 May 2015 - 04:01 PM

Now that Montreal is out, cue the Babcock to Montreal rumours.  Babs no speak French though.  



Lesson #1:


Realgud translates as Tresbun

#2603191 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by Ram on 29 April 2015 - 08:30 AM

In reality, will it be Marchenko or Kindl in tonight? Kindl hasn't played a game in a while but is left-handed fill in for Kronner. Marchenko played well to begin but then was taken out, reasonably, for Smith.


My pipe dream is Kindl and Marchenko both in and Zid out, who has had a few poor games in a row.
