#2202112 A new Wings fan has arrived! First round pick, 2030?

Posted by Jedi on 02 August 2011 - 07:12 PM

New pics! We can confirm that it's a boy, and everything appears completely healthy. His due date was bumped up 6 days, so he's now due November 1st.

The pics are probably HUGE, so be warned.

#2200881 Kris Draper announces retirement

1137 GP in the Winged Wheel. 158 goals. 203 assists. 1 Selke Trophy. 4 Stanley Cups.

Hard to find a better return for $1. Best dollar the Ilitch's ever spent.

Thanks for the memories, Kris!


#2200001 Red Wings sign Ty Conklin to 1 year contract

DO NOT WANT!!!!!!

Considering that Emery and Turco are the only other options left, I would have to say "do want"...

But since a picture is worth a thousand words...

Happy birthday!


#2186290 Congrats to Timmy Thomas

Easiest Conn Smythe pick since Zetterberg, if not farther back. He was absolutely lights out, and is well deserving of the playoff MVP nod. 8 goals in the final 8 games? Unbelievable.

Congrats to Tim!


#2186287 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

if jagr is signing then my guess is lids will resign

"Resign" or "re-sign"? Pretty key difference there.

As far as Jagr. No thanks, says I. While he is usually solid holding onto the puck (usually), he never was as strong a two-way player as our system needs. If he's literally the only option we have, I suppose I would take him. But I wouldn't be too happy about it.

Please allow me to introduce you to (hopefully) the Wings first round pick in 2030!

My girlfriend and I are expecting a bundle of joy on November 10th. The doctors and sonogram technicians are fairly sure it's a boy, but they couldn't be 100% certain. My whole opinion is very cliche, in that I'm just hoping for "10 fingers and 10 toes", but it's true. I'll take healthy first, anything else after that. Thankfully, everything appears to be normal, and the doctors think that the baby is completely healthy!

We've known since March that we were going to become parents, but I can tell you it REALLY hit me yesterday seeing everything on that monitor. And trust me, I'm planning on raising this child right, in that he/she will be a Red Wings fan!


#2177502 Brad McCrimmon will not return for 2011/2012

Hey everyone, let's try and keep this thread on topic. Discussions about possible free agent signings and/or trades should be kept in their appropriate threads.

Let's keep this thread open for discussion about the coaching change, and possible replacements for McCrimmon's now-vacant spot.

There is no word in the English language to describe the sheer joy and jubilation that this news has brought me.

Happy day, indeed.

Combination gritty and pretty win. Lots of things to take as positives from this game.

Good to see the Wings continue to compete even after Heatley tied the game. Would have been easy for doubt to start creeping in. Leave it to the fearless Darren Helm to give hope to the Hockeytown faithful.
