Anybody else having the least productive day at work ever?

Tonight is my 'Monday'.....I gotta be at work 2230.

Tonight we open the nice bottle of scotch! Hooray

There's 2 of you?


Who needs a reason to crack open a new bottle?....Don't tell me you live with your parents.

Stop and think back for a moment guys, think back over at least the last 10-15 years.  Outside of the 01-02 season (which was marred at the beginning by the 9/11 attacks that took some of the "fun" out of the season openener,) When was the last time you have been more excited and giddy or even seen so much interest and hype for the opening night of a Red Wings season? We've had coaching changes, we've had rookies debut, we've had UFA's making their debut, but just reflect on all that is going on today, and that is exactly it, ALL OF THAT is going on right now! Today! Not only a new coach, but outside of Granato, a new coaching staff and philosophy, not only is a rookie debuting, but a 19 year old local kid who just got drafted 16 months ago, PLUS the rest of our young players like Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Pulkkinen! We're excited for a new life for Smith and Kindl, Howard has regained his pre-injury play, Mrazek is here to stay, no longer do we have an average back-up that may see some spot play once in a while.we, once again, have a legit 1a and 1aa goalie tandem.  We have the UFA right handed  offensive d-man that Holland has coveted for years and years. We have no less than 8 kids in GR (if not more) who can be called up and step right into the NHL if needed and contribute.  We FINALLY have a team where the best players will play and not lose out to the veteran just because of seniority.  There is a lot of buzz in Hockeytown this season opener, take a big inhale of it and breathe it all in, this, my friends, is the beginning of our new generation of a Red Wings super team.  We witnessed Yzerman, Fedorov, Lidstrom, Kozlov, etc... all grow together as a team and it seems we have a core today that if kept together, can stay together (just like our 90's team) for a long, long time.  This area has not been this excited in forever...


Take it all in my friends! Let's Go Wings!

Hopefully Z dominates tonight, and please no Kane jokes tonight.


Yeah the Kane jokes are getting a bit forced

#2626248 Model Tries to Blackmail Jagr

Posted by 55fan on 21 September 2015 - 04:26 PM

Wonder how much he'd have paid out if it was an ugly chick.


(Mental note to self:  Meet Jagr, seduce him, wait for him to fall asleep, take selfie... whoa, wait.  I have standards.  I do not take selfies.  Never mind.)

#2624482 So this is why teams hate the wings

I dunno, I think winning is like sex.  Having it is a hell of a lot better than not having it.  Don't get tired of it.  Even boring wins beat the hell out of exciting losses every single time.  What's boring about who's going to carry the Cup first, when's the parade and a summer full of where is the Cup today and with who?

Glad Babcock's gone.


I don't think I could watch Miller-Glendenning-Ericsson for two and a half minutes of OT.

#2614748 Man Games Lost

Posted by rick zombo on 16 June 2015 - 09:16 AM


I didn't even notice, but the first post in this thread had a link which has since been updated (because Tampa is designated as having made the Finals).  But that shows the Cup winners since 2010 as all having been the healthiest teams.  


It's also fair to say that Chicago is juicing. All these playoff games played over the years and they're always healthy.  

I wonder if this also excuses the Pens somewhat.  They're dead last in man games lost since 2010.  


Eddie O probably volunteered to do the glute injections.

#2612851 Tampa Bay Lightning dress code for fans

Posted by chaps80 on 02 June 2015 - 12:18 PM

Jokes. Who cares what jersey a paying fan wears to a game. A big crowd of people should band together and just go shirtless once they get inside. Big fat hairy dudes. And chicks.
