#2664751 4/6 GDT : Philadelphia Flyers at Red Wings, 8:00 ET

Posted by Barrie on 06 April 2016 - 12:23 PM

8:00 is the perfect time, because the Tigers game starts at 4:55. Tigs should be done when the Wings game starts. Gonna be a fun night watching my 2 favorite teams. :thumbup:

#2664749 2016 Playoffs % chances (part II)

Posted by Barrie on 06 April 2016 - 12:18 PM

I agree, I was just saying. I'm excited for tonight! Playoff hockey starts for us now!!


Yup, I got what you were saying. To bad we lost that game, but let's go!

Just think if we were able to score against Toronto in that one game.. What could've been. Oh well! Let's go!!!


Right, can't worry about that, just keep winning.

#2664143 Stamkos out 1-3 months

Posted by Barrie on 02 April 2016 - 10:28 PM

All the best to Stamkos.


I'll be a jerk and be the first to say it, makes taking 3rd place in the Division even more important. Detroit or Boston can play Tampa in the 1st round when their best player is out.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but Let's go Black Hawks and Go Pens Go!

#2662514 Fixing this mess....

Posted by Barrie on 28 March 2016 - 11:50 AM

I was at Puck Talks Live http://www.homestand...k-talks-toronto in Toronto last week. They were talking about Stamkos. Chris Johnson from Sportsnet thinks Stamkos is going to sign with the Wings. It was funny, about a 1/3 or the room when he said it, myself included, cheered :)

#2658719 3/10 GDT : Winnipeg Jets at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Dont like us backing down after hits. Thats bush league by abdelkader. If he doesnt answer the bell, larkin will get run. No bueno.


Mick and Kenny made a good point, if there's no penalty call on the play, don't fight. We needed the win, I think it was a great decision by Abby.

So this was our only deadline move? That's fine with me.

#2655500 2/26 GDT : Red Wings at Avalanche Alumni Game, 7:00 EST

Yzerman on pregame video hi-lights: “It was all Avalanche highlights. I got tired of them knocking us over and scoring. I stopped watching.”

Stevie will always be the captain. :wub:

It's too bad Roy was so damn good today.


Yea I was yelling at the TV, "Show the Wings score a goal"! I guess the Avalanche guys put the video together.


We lost, but a great night. I still recognize how those guys skate. We won the rivalry 7-0 in Game 7 of 2002, and had more Cups (4-2), so they can have the Alumni Game :lol:

It was a typical Wings-Avs game, we out shot them 2-1, and Roy stood on his head. If it was a best of 7, we would have won in 6 :innocent:

#2653474 Dennis Wideman Suspended 20 Games

Posted by Barrie on 17 February 2016 - 06:53 PM

I thought he should have sat out the rest of the year, but I'm satisfied his 20 game suspension stuck. Wideman had no excuse. Players get concussed in hockey all the time, and none of them have gone after an official. As mentioned, I think if any reduction in the suspension would have made it open season on the officials, and the player could have said, "Oh sorry, I had a concussion".

#2653411 Thanks for helping me. First time at the Joe.

Posted by Barrie on 16 February 2016 - 08:21 PM

Great pics man! Can't wait until I go to The Joe on March 12th vs. the Rangers.


I always notice Zetterberg always has to stand behind Datsyuk when he's in the faceoff circle during warm ups. Must be a superstition? I have a couple pictures of them, one taken in Detroit another one in Buffalo.

#2653373 2017 Outdoor game rumored to be Red Wings at Toronto

Posted by Barrie on 16 February 2016 - 02:47 PM

Talk about a letdown. At least play it at Rogers, the capacity would be up. 


Yea I'd play it at the Rogers Center. It's has more seats, and BMO Field isn't much of a venue. It's just a soccer stadium. Rogers Center would have a better back drop with the big scoreboard, the CN Tower above it, and the Windows Restaurant.

I laugh when NFL to Toronto rumors start up every few years. Toronto doesn't have a proper venue for the NFL, they'd have to spend $1.5 Billion to build a new 80,000 seat Stadium. I guess Toronto should have an outdoor game though. 40,000 corporate fans will buy tickets for $2,000 each.

#2652208 '16-'17 The Joe's Farewell Season

Posted by Barrie on 12 February 2016 - 11:24 AM

I've been to JLA over 100 times now and while I'm excited for the new building, I don't think any rink in hockey sans the ORIGINAL Original 6 venues will ever compare to the atmosphere of the Joe.


I've been to a number of sporting events, it's the loudest arena/stadium I've been to.

#2651817 Dennis Wideman Suspended 20 Games

Posted by Barrie on 10 February 2016 - 12:16 PM

Wideman better not win an appeal, or else it'll be open season on the officials. Other players will take out their frustrations on them and say, "Oh, I was concussed". Expect the Union that represents the officials backlash if Wideman wins an appeal. I thought he should have miss the rest of the season.

Really. I was hoping for 40. I think the fact that the linesman wasn't injures is a miracle of so sort. Players get get from less than that hit. That red had no expectation of being hit like that. I was hoping for 40 but would not have complained had he been kicked out of the league.


I agree, I don't care if Wideman was concussed or not, there's no excuse to hit an official.
