#2538966 Devils Sign Tootoo

Posted by thegerkin on 07 October 2014 - 08:11 PM

Happy for him being a one-way contract. He doesn't belong in the minors. Even for league minimum, I'm sure he's glad to get a full NHL season. Good luck Toots!

#2525391 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by thegerkin on 23 June 2014 - 09:47 PM

I'd take a 40-something Alfie over a few of the forwards on our team (Emmerton, Andersson). I just can't understand people sometimes. Detroit had a terrible year last year, not just Alfie, He never got to click with the team because the team was never fully healthy. It was just a lousy year for the team. And Alfie still put up 49 points in 68 games.

#2521919 Inventor looks to drastically shorten ice resurfacing time

Posted by thegerkin on 27 May 2014 - 09:50 PM

I just don't see many teams buying this technology in the near future. Zamboni's are expensive and are usually good for a long time. Once a team, especially in the lower leagues, has committed to purchasing a Zamboni, they won't need to purchase more ice resurfacing equipment for at least 10-15 years. It makes zero financial sense for many, many teams to purchase this new technology. This is especially true considering that, even though there is a drastic reduction in resurfacing time, the intermission is still 17-18 minutes regardless.

#2520273 New Michigan Sports TV Channel, Signed Deal w/Griffins

Same here about Charter. Hoping they add this. It's only a 20 minute drive to Van Andel for me to watch the Griffs, but I would love the opportunity sometimes to make that a 0-minute drive by watching on TV :)

#2496330 Franzen calls out team

Posted by thegerkin on 18 March 2014 - 01:51 AM

I think Franzen has been pretty good for most of the year.  He's been hitting and shooting and playing a good game.  He has an A now for a reason.  I think he's stepped up well.  If he played like this with Z and Pav, it would be amazing to see.


To be fair, Franzen is wearing the A due to attrition. However, I agree that he has stepped up his game and hopefully gets on his "playoff beast-mode" a few weeks early :)

Way ahead of you. I stopped shaving a month ago hoping for a turnaround, so here we go. BEARD POWER!

#2494150 Scary incident with Rich Peverley

Posted by thegerkin on 10 March 2014 - 08:38 PM

It's scary enough to see someone get injured physically, but like PredsFan said, when something goes wrong internally and it happens on the bench, that's enough to rip out your heart out with worry. Get well soon!

The Fallen Heroes section is cringe-worthy sad.

The Red Wings New Years resolution: Start winning games in regulation. :)



#2470147 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Posted by thegerkin on 01 January 2014 - 10:28 PM

I just pray they remove the POS-SO skills competition. Yay! Year 'round individual stick and puck! Awesome! Forget all that 65 minutes of team play! I was against it before and nothing will change my mind that the SO is pure garbage. A horrible gimmick that needs to be put down now. Otherwise, the 65 minute game was great!
