#2259452 Canucks Vs Detroit in Motor City

Posted by vladdy16 on 20 February 2012 - 07:06 PM

We didn't offer these opinions unsolicited - they were asked for by a Nucks fan who insists this is a touchstone game. Sorry, but as a hockey fan who saw 30 longer ago than I care to admit, no one outside of Canada and under God only knows what age considers Vancouver an NHL "flagship." And no one has "dumped on" Vancouver in this thread any more than (and quite a bit less than) I've seen Nucks fans do in seasons past; we just don't consider this a game any more important than most. And we've lost regular season series to many whom we have subsequently dismissed from the playoffs. Outside of a divisional rival, regular season series in a good season don't mean a whole lot.
Detroit hasn't had an actual riot since 1968 and I defy you to find any real evidence outside of accusations from non-local media to prove otherwise, yet it's a perpetual joke in North America. Anyone who does have an actual riot is going to hear about it repeatedly from Detroiters. Might as well learn to live with it - it's not going away any time soon.
And it's not luck the Wings have been dominant - it's by the grace of Mike Ilitch and the genius of Jim Devellano. We Michiganders must be right with Jesus to be so blessed.
So I'm sorry if we don't hold the Nucks in the same esteem you do, but I am hard pressed to think of any reason thus far why we should.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Vlasic is okay!

I can't speak for anyone else, but for me, Vancouver games mean no more than Phoenix games. It's just another game on the schedule that I'd like to win.


#2259048 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Sort of surprised this has remained up. It's pretty obvious trolling, even if the horrendous grammar gave me a good chuckle.

Very doubtful I would see a topic such as this posted to the Sharks' forum if the tables were turned.


I was originally going to pull it, but I thought the general populace might like to feed on him a little. Too evil?

You can end the streak - we'll settle for our playoff success. :)

And by the way, it's impossible to come to a Wings board and be a "fellow" Sharks fan.

I was reading this article about the WC. Here's my favorite part when talking about Gary Bettman discussing the history between the Wings and Leafs:

He made no mention of the 1998 expansion that sent Toronto to the East and replaced Detroit's treasured rival with something called the Nashville Predators.

I have done things and promised things that none of you need to hear about to get ticket information.

This means no NYE game. Not complaining, it just means the tradition is interrupted.

I'd just like to take a second to thank Mike Ilitch. He doesn't take over the Wings, chances are we wouldn't be here right now. There's no way to articulate the huge change he made in the future of the Wings and the city of Detroit. WTG, Mr. Ilitch!

I think this is an awesome idea, never mind the title. :)

I am in charge of getting tickets for 5 people for sure. If I score more than that, they will be offered up here, definitely at face value. I think it's criminal to make money off of members of our community. If I can point people in the right direction for tickets, it will be posted here. It probably seems insanely early to those outside of Wings or Leafs territory, but this game is going to be epic no matter what the score. I know I'll do whatever I have to so as not to miss this one.

The "S" word is NEVER uttered before the clock runs out. Ever.

Even though I live only 45 minutes from the Big House, I checked on hotels in the area - they are booking up already. If anyone wants to stay in the Ann Arbor area, I highly recommend you reserve a room now.
Here's a link for the hotels closest to Michigan Stadium.

I'm staying on CBC - didn't have time to change over after intermission and Wings scored, so I'm sticking with it. They're giving mad props to Pavel. I have to say, if you are going to watch another team's broadcast, CBC is the way to go. They're obviously pulling for the Leafs, but they're not total homers about it. Too bad I couldn't hear what they had to say about the penalty shot.
