sorry folks, i'm going to this game tonight and detroit has never won when i've been there.


blame it on me.


Here's to a win and bucking that trend! Wings need to come up huge here, Toronto is due for a win and it isn't going to come easy. -Nyquist & Tatar I hope continue their surge here LGW


well, they finally won when i was on hand....good but nervous game.  howard made a couple of huge saves.  franzen was slightly better but still pretty useless.  the leafs fans booing at the end of the game was priceless.  on talk radio after the game every fan is ready to blow it all up.

I don't disagree about that goal counting. But those calls seem to always go against us. If we had scored that I feel it would have been disallowed.

I think Ken said during the game "maybe" Monday for Pav. Of course, he has been close for weeks now. I am to the point where I would be surprised if he's back before the Olympics.

i would rather him not play in the olympics.  i'm really leaning towards the nhl bowing out all together and leave the olympics to the amateurs.

Ya If it was a groin or muscle pull you wouldn't expect that he would be out a month (or at least played a few times here and there and re-aggregated it). From the sounds of things in the media updates he hasn't been close to a comeback and then had a setback either. If it was a foot/stress fracture I could believe that too. Not sure why they can't release the actual cause when it is clear he won't be back until its healed - this isn't the playoffs where you hide your injuries while playing injured. 

i was trying to pinpoint anything i could as well.  considering he was in the shootout in the WC.  it reminds me of the SC finals against pitt when he was getting a charlie horse drained and everyone was very hush hush.

i'm just glad to get 2 points.  right now it doesn't matter how.

I would believe that. 

ya nothing else makes sense at this point.  certainly not a groin like everyone said in the beginning.  very frustrating but why lie about it?

plus if it is a concussion he has no idea if he will play in the olympics or not.

For people who went, how was the view? I always thought the downside of playing in a giant football stadium would be that you couldn't see the puck way in the back.

i was at the very top of the stadium.  view was ok, spent time watching on the big screen for sure.


but luckily for us (me and two leaf fan friends) had such amazing tickets.  we didn't even know until we got there that we ended up with box seats.  no lines for beer or bathrooms and all the heat we needed.  to boot it was the leafs alumni box.  sat with gary roberts, bob mcgill and family, lanny mcdonald, brad may.  was cool to talk with brad about that goal he scored that they didn't count years ago when playing with the wings.


overall i would not change that experience for anything...pregame, post game, was all awesome.

Why did Jimmy play that puck to no one when the Wings needed a change? 

exactly!  what the f*** was he thinking just directing it to no one?  i've always felt howard has no concept of when to keep the play moving or not.


regardless of smithf****** up twice large on that shift....preds should have a goose egg so far.

Pasha -3

this is one of those times when plus minus means nothing.  howard isf****** useless as s*** right now.

can't believe he's still in the net.

#2468287 Dion Phaneuf Close to signing Extension

Posted by DRW Dominance on 29 December 2013 - 08:20 AM



Would have easily given him 7/49 the guy is a number  1 defenseman and can provide a team with lots of minutes, great player. Fixing this mess of a defense just became harder.

disagree completely.  phaneuf is not even as good as kronwall.  to rely on him as your #1 shows the state of the rest of their D.

Please win. Living in Southwestern Ontario there is nothing worse than a Maple Leafs win over the Red Wings.


Prediction: Detroit 3 Toronto 1 (Datsyuk (x2), Tatar)

jesus, tell me about it.  i've been to the last 2 games in toronto and we've lost both.  no matter how good the wings are it seems we always lose to the leafs and it'll probably continue tonight.  just so my friends can rub it in my face.

#2447931 What's Killing Our Offense?

Posted by DRW Dominance on 26 October 2013 - 04:27 PM


 I think it's where the mishmash of 3rd and 4th line particularly stands out.   On a lot of teams that's the fast, crash bang line that keeps the puck deep in the corners and will throw it out front for a good chance.  On the Wings it's just inferior versions of the top two lines.

this exactly.  drives me nuts how the bottom six try to play like the top 6.  they need to be more traditional when it comes to the bottom six.  do as much crash and bang as possible.  having said that though, helm, nyquist, tatar maybe would be excellent as a third line.

this game is disgusting.  when we look bad we look really bad.  no heart or intensity. 


where's the hits from abby, cleary, bert, franzen the floater....no forecheck at all.
