#2212870 Tell the Illitch Family to Drop "Presented by Amway"

Posted by Jedi on 07 October 2011 - 10:31 AM

They signed a 3 year contract. I'm sure they don't want to lose the revenue from the deal, as well as having to pay legal fees against the inevitable breach of contract lawsuit that would arise from Amway.

I don't like the sponsorship any more than anyone else, but unfortunately this is a done deal.

Discussions of the individual goals from the game can be discussed in the corresponding game's GDT.

#2209783 Todd Bertuzzi's Shootout Goal

Posted by Jedi on 26 September 2011 - 12:07 PM

The Todd has a pretty impressive bag of tricks when it comes to shootouts. Nice goal, there.

so yesterday i posted the replay on my FB....and this is what i got from a stupid preds fan..

Todd Bertuzi is old and should probably be suspended for life or maybe even be in jail for what he did to Steve Moore. That's all.

You're friends with draperfan on Facebook?


#2205022 LGW Podcast Debut for 2011-2012 Season

If it's "all-things-LGW", then an interview or questionnaire with a different member each month. Something like a "getting to know you" feature.

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

Posted by Jedi on 25 July 2011 - 12:27 PM

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

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 belated!

#2186622 Happy birthday to 55fan!

Happy birthday!

#2186290 Congrats to Timmy Thomas

Posted by Jedi on 16 June 2011 - 06:18 PM

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.

Posted by Jedi on 16 June 2011 - 06:15 PM

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.

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!
