#2592827 WCQF : (4) Nashville Predators vs. (5) Chicago Ham Hocks

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 April 2015 - 08:53 AM

This is a "Can't they both get eliminated" series for me.

#2592820 WCQF : (7) Winnipeg Jets vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 April 2015 - 08:36 AM

I'm not sure what it would take for me to root for the Ducks, but it would be spectacular and expensive, I know that.  Hopping on the Jets bandwagon for this one.

#2592734 Money On The Board!

Posted by vladdy16 on 12 April 2015 - 08:21 PM

$1 for each game won
$10 for each series win
$5 for every shutout
$5 for each game won by more than 3 goals

I'm down for whatever charity everyone wants, as long as it benefits the Detroit area.

What, no bunghole pledge?

Yes!  Thanks for doing this again.  Either charity is fine, although I tend to lean towards children's hospitals.  There is no wrong answer if the money is going towards a good cause.


I'm going with the hamster bet again.  And, again, I'll keep track in my sig because it would be impossible otherwise.


$1 for each goal scored by a Wing after whom I've named a hamster (must still play for the Wings, sorry Filppula).

An additional $1 if the above-mentioned goal scored is a GWG.

An additional $5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.

An additional $50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.


$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.


The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James


Go Wings!

That hamster list is getting a little long.  You might have to switch it up soon.  :)

Missed the game today, how did our misfits look?

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.

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!
