#2443234 Nashville Predators first nhl game on Oct 10TH,1998

Posted by vladdy16 on 10 October 2013 - 09:20 PM

I envy Preds fans - they got to be there at the inception of their team.  What wouldn't I give to see the Wings starting out?  Man, those were the days -  when men were men and refs nonexistent.  Bettman too!

Honestly, it serves them right for supporting this travesty for so long.  The NHL took over the team, they took over the debts.

#2440436 Parros Concussed

Posted by vladdy16 on 02 October 2013 - 08:36 AM

The original play happened off screen.  Once they showed the tape, it was pretty nasty.  He seemed to be out cold for a few minutes, then he tried to get up and couldn't.  Really glad he didn't shatter his jaw or anything.  

CBC was muttering about how they needed to get fighting out of the game because of things like this.  If that's their logic, heck, they should take the ice out of the game.  That's the really dangerous part.

Please let's not turn this into any kind of political discussion whatsoever.




#2437920 Gallant and Barch find a way around the new helmet rule

Posted by vladdy16 on 20 September 2013 - 10:25 AM

Setting aside what I consider to be the lunacy (and irony) of getting an unsportsmanlike penalty for removing your helmet before a fight when I consider it the gentlemanly thing to do, NJ and New York have figured out a way around it.

#2437912 Lidstrom will play in Winter Classic Alumni Game

Posted by vladdy16 on 20 September 2013 - 09:24 AM

The worst kept secret since the 2013 Winter Classic "announcement."  Fans knew months before the official announcement it was going to be Detroit/Toronto.  They act like it's the Red Wedding when in reality it's more like WikiLeaks.

 

Still, yay for The Perfect Human!

This was posted on the Bruins hfboards board a few min ago

 

Im gonna put the wings in the same category with the Devils and Florida. Boring games that offer little in the way of entertainment due to the nature of the organization the Bruins are playing against. These guys play a yellow, cheap assed, pick your spot game, cant stand their styleicon1.png.

They are good, but a poor team to watch play the gameicon1.png...
 
:lol:

 

This is an aberration IME; Bruins fans are usually pretty cool and discerning.  In all fairness, this was a beatdown for them, preseason or no.  Emotions are running high.

As I mentioned, I'm not able to watch the game right now so can someone please tell me are there goaltenders on the ice?

I think they have a cardboard cutout in the Boston net.

Beauty of a goal.  Bastards.

Cleary's been reading LGW.  Figured he'd better do something to placate the masses.  :lol:

Do you actually think we had puck luck last year?

Uh, no, hence the "we had luck last year?"  Even bad luck assumes some level of luck period.

I love watching the first game of the fall; it reminds me how fast and how freakin' awesome this sport really is.

PP goal for Abby.  BEAUTIFUL pass by Numba 13 to set it up.

SO much love for this shirt!  If anyone's interested, you may purchase them here.  I'm not affiliated, just sharing.  They have a lot of other cool shirts as well.




#2434029 Single Game Tix

Posted by vladdy16 on 24 August 2013 - 10:18 AM

They had a second round for today, all crappy seats, but I scored two for March 6th!  Was at JLA at 5:30 this morning, was number 25 in line, so I was the very last person in the first round of people allowed to buy tickets.

As an added bonus, I waited in line for 3 hours with Mike and Terrence Sawchuck and their wives.  Yes, THAT Sawchuck.  Was flipping awesome for me, but I can't believe the Wings don't treat the family of arguably the greatest goalie of all time better.
