#2064240 11/17 GDT: Blues 3 at Red Wings 7

Posted by thegerkin on 17 November 2010 - 06:19 PM

My best friend is a huge Blues fan, so there is always a lot of trash talk when we play the Blues. Hope we play a full 60 minute game tonight.

Althought ill probably have to miss it due to having to be on a ambulance most of the evening. :(

But....thank god for DVR :)

Better riding along than being along for the ride! :)

+1 Great interview and as someone said earlier, not run-of-the-mill questions. Now please bring us the Modano interview! :thumbup:

And this is the exact reason that the Detroit Red Wings are the best organization in professional hockey (and possibly in all of professional sports). I hope your brother gets well soon! :)

He's absolutely correct. The obvious difference between today's game and Richard's generation is the extra safety equipment. Players these days feel they can throw the elbow because the other guy has a helmet on or get their stick up high because the other guy is wearing a shield. The extra equipment gives today's players the feeling that they can go out and just plain wreck the other guy. As far as the hits from behind, it needs harsher enforcement of the rules. Some players think they are just finishing their check but that's just a poor excuse.

#2044849 Kirk Maltby to announce he is retiring

So bummed to hear this :( Malts was as much a part of the Wings identity as anyone. He will be missed. Thanks for the years of service in the trenches, Malts! :clap:

We need a strong start tonight. Ozzie will be fine. Let's roll 4 lines all game long!

If anything, the good old multi-repeat commercials are the most annoying. f*** Sam Bernstein, the cross-eyed kid, his shyster son, and the dame. They are way more offensive than anything in/on the rink.

I don't give a damn about people's opinions about Malts, I LOVE to see him out there face-washing and just being a pain in in the ass :thumbup:

Ummmm, just turned on the tube and all I'm getting is af****** Tigers game....wtf???

Try channel 901 (Comcast FSD+). Only TV feed I could get, as the NHL HD feed was blacked out for me.

#2037749 That Datsyuk is a pretty cool guy...

Pavs is the man. Makes me so proud to be a Red Wings fan when one of our guys does something so unselfish as to make others lives just a bit better. :clap:

Ozzie hung out to dry... AGAIN

#2036010 Hit on Franzen worthy of suspension

Posted by thegerkin on 23 September 2010 - 08:46 PM

This kind of crap just shouldn't happen in the preseason. Period.

This crap (knee-on-knee especially) shouldn't happen ANY time. It's a cheap, cowards move. Orpik should be sitting as many games as Franzen is out.
