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)

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!

Good to bring in Gus. They're hanging Jimmy out to dry and he doesn't look to sharp tonight either. Get them next time Howie! Let's Go Gus!!!

#2442901 Ex-Coyotes owner off hook for Gretzky’s $6.5M.

Posted by thegerkin on 09 October 2013 - 08:19 PM

I'd like to see Gretzky make a fuss to get that money. It's a drop in the "Gretzky Bucket", but it also would show fans that the NHL has ZERO problem trying to screw one of the games very best players.

Nash even left the ice before hitting Kopecky. Ahhh, the beauty of double-standards...

Was the ice terrible? That puck never settled the whole game. The Wings will continue to gel and the timing will come with that.

#2440615 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

Posted by thegerkin on 02 October 2013 - 04:18 PM

In the Dreger article, it looks like Scotty Bowman is all onboard the no-fight train:


After reading the quotes from these three NHL executives, it didn't take long for one of the game's most celebrated builders to chime in as well. "I support views of Steve Yzerman, Ray Shero and Jim Rutherford on their opinions for addressing most fighting issues," tweeted the legendary Scotty Bowman on Wednesday afternoon. "Poll all Players." 


The "Poll All Players" part caught my eye because as it says in the article, 98% of players polled in 2011-12 do NOT want fighting removed. Some might say don't let the inmates run the asylum, but when all but 2% of the NHL players want fighting left in the game, I think the players know how to handle the on-ice game. Let them play.
