#2508617 CBC partners with Rogers in landmark NHL rights deal.

Posted by vladdy16 on 11 April 2014 - 11:58 AM

From CBC:

 

This breaks my heart.  I grew up with CBC and it's my go-to when Wings aren't playing.  Say what you will about the crew, I'll take CBC over NBC any day.  Plus I get to watch out-of-market games, which will no longer be the case.  WOW doesn't offer NHL Network or Center Ice.




#2505508 Iginla-Rinaldo Fight

Personally, and this may just be me, Iginla deserves whatever anyone chooses to dish out for all the crap he's pulled over the years, legal or not.  Within reason, of course.




#2504675 Blackhawks getting Wingitis

I don't see anyone making fun of the injuries at all.  "Welcome to our world" is hardly doing a happy dance.  




#2503968 3/30 GDT - Lightning 2 @ Red Wings 3

Posted by vladdy16 on 30 March 2014 - 07:17 PM

These sons of ******* keep winning every freakin' time I don't watch, so I keep not watching.  I'm forced to record the replay on FSD at midnight and watch the next day, because hockey gods know I can't record the original game or they lose as well.  I'm taking a lot more than one for team here.  

 

That Nyquist goal is phenomenal!




#2502801 3/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Maple Leafs 2

I'm working through the night and I got bored.

 

This was the result.

Holland and Babs in the band!

It tickles me way more than it should that we have Canadian fans.  

 

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

 

blame it on me.

I live just across the border and I know where my passport is.  I have plenty of time to hunt you down before the game.  




#2500203 3/23 GDT: Red Wings vs Wild

and again, Howard does not make the save we need. Kindl blows.

The problem is there are too many saves in every game we need Howard to make.

wild need to score to 

get their power play % 

a bit higher

Really?  Is that how that works?  Score on a PP and the percentage will go up.  Who knew?

Must need something to make yourself feel better after the Pens' 0-1 loss to the Blues, eh?

I understand the desire to poke, but let's keep it on tonight's game, okay?

Uh, is it just me or is NBC being very nice to the Wings tonight?  It's like I'm in an alternate universe or something.

you seem to have a lot of confidence in your team. good on you.

not taking anything away from your enthusiasm but you have pittsburgh

coming up. not going to be an easy task... ;)

Last time I checked we were playing the Wild, not the Pens.  We don't meet the Pens until April 9th, so not anytime soon.  Why don't we chat about tonight's game?




#2495081 Howard = Average

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 March 2014 - 09:23 AM

For the love of all that is hockey, please do not turn this into another goalie war thread.  Let's discuss Howard and Howard alone.  Retired goalies have no bearing in this conversation.

Okay, it's official - I am not pleased with this acquisition.  The cost was too damn high!

I'm all for unlocking the thread and discussing the game et al, but if the last posts are what we have to look forward to, I have no problem locking it again.
