#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!
 




#2437788 9/19 Pre-Season GDT : Red Wings 8 at Bruins 2

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.




#2433956 NHL Network 1995 Final VS NJ 12-3pm EST Today

Posted by vladdy16 on 23 August 2013 - 03:26 PM

Don't get me wrong, 2009 sucked hard, but I think for older fans 1995 was the greater heartbreak.  Decades of watching a mediocre team, only to get thisclose and be decimated.

1995 never happened - it's all propaganda!  The season was cancelled.  Yeah, that's it - cancelled.




#2433258 Preds Managemant Charging Hawks Fans Double

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 August 2013 - 11:13 AM

Looks like the Wings moved east in the nick of time.  Preds are forcing Hawks fans to buy a ticket to a non-Hawks game if they want to see the Hawks play in Nashville.  Seems to me this is going to backfire on them.  Looks like revenue sharing and Wings and Hawks fans being the only reason that team has lasted this long isn't enough for them.  It also seems to me that this is going to have a very negative effect on the local businesses as well.  

Is it me or is this a "What the hell are they thinking" move?




#2432489 So the consensus on Shanny's #14 is a no?

Posted by vladdy16 on 05 August 2013 - 10:18 AM

I agree Shanny was great and I was pleasantly surprised at how seamlessly he fit in here right away, but I think the bar is set pretty damn high for sweaters in the rafters and he just doesn't quite make it.
