I can only be an improvement to the area, and I am sure the local fans will love it. I am very happy that I got to attend a few games at the epic and irreplaceable Joe Louis Arena. I loved every second of the games I attended there and felt privileged as a fan to be there.
Sentiment aside, the Wings deserve the best. I hope this new arena is just that.
I think the helmet one is dumb. If you're in your own end on a pk defending and someone checks you, knocks the helmet off, somehow you deserve a penalty because you don't want to leave your team even more shorthanded to go put the helmet back on or go back to the bench?
Some of the quizzes were real brain-scratchers. I was good with players back to the early 80's, but before that it's foggy. It helps on those quizzes to remember how awesome Mike Bossy, Montreal Canadiens, Rocket Richard, etc... were as they are answers on most of the all-time lists. Use it as cliff-notes if you need
Yeah, for some of those quizzes, I love it when I type Gretzky's name in, and like 10 boxes get filled in automatically.
I didn't see this already being discussed, if there is one already please delete this one...
Once again, I am having trouble with my paste commands on here but if you go to detnews.com the article is there.
This is sad news, I hope he can beat it! I am having one tonight in honor of the man who help build our Dynasty!
quick little funny story, when he was coach/gm for us, I was pushing wheel chairs at metro and always was on the look out for NHL players traveling. I ran into Bryan Murray on his way to GM meetings and they were in the middle of a 10-15 game unbeaten streak at the time. A lot of people were starting to recognize him and I jokingly asked him, "Its kind of hard to remain anonymous now-a-days isn't it?" He laughed and answered yes. He then started asking about what I do at the airport and just being friendly in general. During our conversation I mentioned that I was going to the game the next night. He said make sure his assistants coaches do a good job while he was gone. I said no problem! Well they lost. Oh well. Now, fast forward a few days later after the meetings and I am at work in my work station and I happen to see him walking through towards baggage claim. He saw me and approached me and asked me what happened and that he thought I was going to take care of things...lol! I told him I submitted some line changes but they wouldn't listen to me! He had a laugh! I thought is was so cool that with all the business of the NHL and the thousands of fans he meets, that he actually remembered our conversation and even was down to earth enough to give me a little egg on my face...
Great, great guy and great Hockey mind. It's just too bad he hasn't been able to win that Cup yet...stay strong Bryan and beat this!
Tyler Myers can go right out the window. They want a ridiculous amount for him (heard 4 starters and a high round pick) and honestly he's not that good. He's just tall.
Byfuglien is an interesting option. He fills a lot of holes on our backend (size, toughness, and a righty). Seems like a better trade partner than BUF who is in our division.
Don't know much about Petry.
I don't want to imagine Big Buff filling any holes on my backend. Immature and sleep deprived is not a good combination.
What? All I'm saying is that we have a lot of pressure back there sometimes and he can be the one to relieve it. Sure, there might be some boil-over from the other D-man he's playing with, but they just need to bear down, keep it loose, and be prepared to go long and deep.... into the post-season.
