#2592557 Money On The Board!

Posted by vladdy16 on 11 April 2015 - 10:13 PM

Yes, it's our favorite time of year, folks!  For those of you who know how this works, pledge early and often.  For those of you who don't, those who want to participate figure out some kind of financial pledge having to do with the Wings playoff performance.  Some pledge a buck a goal for certain players, some pledge per win, per series, per shutout, or any combination.  Get creative!  Don't get too complicated though, because it gets hard to keep of.  Post your pledge here so we can shamelessly "plus" your post.  When it's not possible to add any more to the kitty, everyone Paypals me their total and I make a donation.

 

Now, all but one year we have donated to Children's Hospital.  I'm fine if everyone wants to keep it that way, but I'd like to suggest we send this season's donation to a local charity started by a 12-year-old when he was 9.  He spends every single Saturday feeding the homeless in Detroit.  I've been following him on Facebook for quite a while now and he's starting to get a lot of press.  All signs point to this being a legit charity.  Check out the Eimers Foundation here and here.  When you pledge, vote for either Children's Hospital or the Eimers Foundation; both are worthy recipients, so I certainly won't be offended either way.

 

 

LGLGW!!

I think Hockeytown has one in the works, but I'll just merge when it's done.

You are a rainbow ceiling fan and that's it.

This cannot end well, but proceed. Let's see where this goes.

It's the quietest arena in the world right now, but oh well.

Having been to three of the last five home games, I beg to differ.

Datsyuk said he is playing tomorrow. "I'm good to go"




#2587787 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by vladdy16 on 01 April 2015 - 08:47 AM

Defense made Mrazek look good. His true colors showed in the SO

I have to disagree with this.  There were a few good plays and one goal saved by possibly Kronwall, but the angle and height of my seats made it almost impossible to determine who is who, but the Wings D overall was not great last night.  The Wings are not checking much at all.  The Sens gained the zone at will, as evidenced by the huge SOG difference.  I didn't watch the shootout  (I never do) so I can't say what Petr's performance was like then, but if it was poor, I'd say he was just damn tired.  He's the only reason we didn't get blown out of the water last night.

I will be at the Joe tonight to celebrate Mr. Hockey's birthday.  Wings are (hopefully) planning a nice present for him in the form of a win.

 

Happy Birthday, Gordie!

Yes, PMs, please.  And while I'm here, why don't we take the goalie discussion in general over to the "Mrzak is #1 Goalie" or whatever its title is unless it's about this game specifically.  Thanks.

I'll be representing both Tuesday and Thursday - Ottawa and Boston.  Little did I know when I bought my tickets at the beginning of the season how big these games would be.  Hope the same Wings that played today show up next week as well.

 

Wings are the only team this season to shut out Tampa.

 

Mrzak will start tomorrow per Bab's post game.

Why do awesome things keep happening while I'm posting?!

The question is why are you not posting more then?

Ha.  Andersson and Quincey.  Throw Cleary in there for the trifecta.
