#2535146 potential team names for las vegas!

Las Vegas Slots.

That name should be fun!

#2535116 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by evilmrt on 28 August 2014 - 05:49 PM


Atlanta was moved as quick as it was because Bettman wanted to stop the "move the Coyotes back to Winnipeg" talk.  If Atlanta had a competent ownership group and front office and hadn't been a joke for most of their existence I think they would have been relatively successful.  Instead, they got moved as soon as it was possible while the league has done everything possible to keep the failed experiment in Glendale.


To this day, I cannot figure out why they keep trying to keep the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes propped up, while they just bailed on the Thrashers. Not a group I would trust to pull off a 4 team expansion.

I wish the bucket would have been filled with something else

#2531678 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by evilmrt on 11 July 2014 - 06:49 PM

I called and canceled my half-season ticket plan yesterday over voice mail as well as gave my great displeasure, directly but professionally, over the mismanagement and lack of professionalism of this organization.
I actually received a follow up this morning from the head of ticket services telling me, "If you don't believe in the vision or management style of the best GM in sports, perhaps you might think about following another team". 
I can see they really value the fans. 

He called you and said that, or it's an email?

Wow! Wtf???

Are we supposed to let Chris Ilitch know how upset we are about this?

At what point do we voice our displeasure? Our beloved Winged Wheel is being run into the ground by a buffoon.

Soccer is more exciting than free agent day in Detroit. At least in soccer, there is a CHANCE your team is going to score.
Happy July 1, everybody.

And that team is hanging tough so far!

#2526416 NHL Draft 2014: First Round

Posted by evilmrt on 27 June 2014 - 08:16 PM

Wow, they did pick Larkin. Thats pretty cool, this kid is about as Michigan as any of you guys could want.


He's from freaking Waterford, played for the Belle Tire club, then for USNTDP in Ann Arbor, and now he's suiting up for U of M.


Surely some of you guys know this kid?

Wow. Someone finally figured it out. Hollands just trying to keep up appearances. He doesn't even want to build a good hockey team. He just wants to play GM and hang out with Zetterberg.

I'd rather hang out with Pasha

It just dawned on me after watching the Lucic interview who's kid he is:

This makes me so happy. First the Pens fall, and now the "mighty" Bruins. 



#2520415 Canada can support 3 more teams in 20yrs

Posted by evilmrt on 14 May 2014 - 05:12 PM

I understand that but the problem is:
not enough people - including media - are willing to get into hockey or embrase it = less merchandise sale than say in Canada. Seattle only wants the NHL as an after thought and we all know how that turned out. Dallas at least has some fans showing up when the team does well = competing in the playoffs.
but the truth is, some markets aren't just made for hockey no matter how big their population is.
Canadian teams should boycott revenue sharing till the NHL front office is giving them more teams, Seattle would start with no fans at all, in a non hockey market AND with the NHL being an after thought to me that's a disaster waiting to happen.

I would agree but with one additional point... The Seattle area is one of the most likely US metros that could potentially be converted to a hockey city (to some degree). Washington already has a lot of junior hockey, and they have a natural rival right across the border. Some very concerted grassroots efforts, and media presence, I think they'd be in very good shape after ten years, a solid hockey city. You don't have such potential in other scenarios in the US.

This would probably take better league leadership than they currently have now, though.
