#2542818 10/21 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Canadiens 2 (OT)

Posted by LeftWinger on Yesterday, 12:12 PM

:lol: Hockeytown, I see what you did there!



Praying Mantha, the whole point of "our" GDT is to enjoy the creative genius of the few guys that put all the effort into it.  We appreciate the link to "all the data we need" but its just not the same.  It's also not a race to see who can get the GDT thread up first.  Again, it's well worth the wait to enjoy the creative efforts of the "regular's." No offense, but do you see what I am saying?


That being said, I hope Dats is 100% and doesn't reinjure his shoulder! Lets go Wings!

Never change Babcock.

#2542092 Toronto Radio: Illitch is selling everything and Babs will be Leafs GM

Posted by kliq on 18 October 2014 - 10:36 AM

I don't know why babs would ever want to coach the leafs,  if he left for anywhere it seems more probable that he'd leave for an actual contender.


You very well could be right, but if I am Babcock, at this point I am thinking about my legacy. Going to a team like lets say Pittsburgh and winning a cup I believe does nothing for him. Staying with a team like Detroit and essentially winning a cup with a completely different generation of players, I believe does much more.


Even Toronto I believe would do more then going to a contender. Taking a team that hasn't won since '67 and winning them a cup would turn him into a hockey god in TO.


I would like to see Babcock take over Holland's position as GM in Detroit and Blashill be the coach some day.


If the day did come where Holland stepped down, I would rather see Detroit bring back Stevie Y to fill his shoes, not Babcock.

Aren't they getting Stevie Y and both Bowmans, too, to complete the Mgt Team?

Maybe he'll score 5 again. 

#2541720 Joe Louis Arena to be Demolished

Posted by Playmaker on 17 October 2014 - 12:47 PM

It's like saying a 78 Pacer is a classic car just because you got laid in it.  The teams were great, the building sucks. 


It wasn't even intended to be a hockey building.  Coleman Young threw up a quickie building to try and keep the Pistons from leaving Cobo, but they went to the Silverdome anyway.  Then he had to beg the Wings to move there so he wouldn't have this huge new arena sitting empty.  It's not a classic building by any stretch of the imagination.  Even if they didn't tear it down, it's still would suck.

Can I push the button?

With all due respect, it's a craphole.

I dont see why this is surprising. Florida is notoriously bad at supporting its sports teams. Not just in hockey but in pretty much all major sports. Sure they may sell out when a team is dominating a league or deep in playoffs but if a team is mediocre or bad nobody shows up. Honestly can you blame them though? Would you rather spend your money to go see a mediocre or bad sports team or go to the beach and look at scantily clad woman and enjoy the ocean? Theres just to many other things to do in Florida year round than go to sports games. I believe the high amount of transplants to the state also adds into this. People are loyal to there original teams not adopted florida teams.


There are plenty of scantily clad women in the world.  There is only one Tomas Kopecky.

Posted by DeGraa55 on 14 October 2014 - 05:16 PM

I have been to aeros games here in Houston on a week night with more fans in the seats than that.
The NHL needs to move these guys, this is just sad to see.

That's crazy weekday griffins games average like 1000 you can sit anywhere you want.

I gotta ask the obvious why are there people sitting way up in the stands if there is no one in front of them?

Better view? I'll personally never sit in the lower bowl. I prefer frot row of the upper bowl right on center ice. You get the best view there IMO.

#2538821 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by toby91_ca on 07 October 2014 - 02:49 PM

Interesting that Holland has so much power here.  Maybe it's changed over the years, but I would have thought that the coach is the guy that ultimately picks the roster and the GM would source the players.  Obviously both would have input on both processes, but in this case, looks like it's almost like Holland brings the players to camp and selects the 23 that will be on the roster and then Babcock is free to choose the 20 that dress every night.


I'm sure Babcock has more influence than that though....no way he'd stick around if he didn't.

When are people going to stop paying any attention whatsoever to ESPN, especially when it comes to hockey?  When I want to know about poker championships, I'll turn to ESPN.

Look no further than their vote for the Number 1 worst team in North America: The Toronto Maple Leafs.  Seriously?  While they have indeed struggled mightily in recent years (decades), they are far from the worst.  I don't care what the criteria was, ESPN is dead-ass wrong.  As usual.
