In Topic: Once again The D is awesome

There's no doubt Detroit is #1. I was at Price's first start in Detroit in mid August, there was 43,000 people at the Tigers game on a Saturday night, largest crowd since opening day, it doesn't get any better than that.

 

I compare that to a Blue Jays game (I live outside Toronto) I was watching in mid-June. A Friday night they were lucky if they had 20,000. I was thinking, "Get to the ball park you idiots!"


In Topic: Doggone it Danny Cleary

If I go back to the thread of when he was signed, I guarantee you that is not the case. I would post examples, but I don't want to turn this into what I hate.

 

Right, there was a lot of people upset when Cleary was signed. I didn't see how a 1 year $1.5 Million deal for a guy who's done a lot for the organization was a bad move. It's better for Cleary to be a healthy scratch then a young player who can get playing time in Grand Rapids. It allows Cleary to leave the game with his head held high, instead of being kicked to the curb. Also it shows the Red Wings are a classy organization.


In Topic: Are the Wings a Contender?

The thing with a cap, there isn't a dominating team. Every team has holes with talent spread out. On paper, we're probably not a major contender, but we're consistently outshooting the opposition, and Howard's playing well.


In Topic: Saluting the fans

I don't think the players should have to salute the fans. It's a nice thing to do, but as a fan I really don't care.

 

If I was a Maple Leafs player, I wouldn't want to salute the Leaf fans either. However, if I was a player, I wouldn't want to play in Toronto. The fans and media never give you a minute to yourself. I live in the Toronto area, everyday the major media outlets need multiple Leaf stories, even if it's the middle of summer.
