#2541736 Joe Louis Arena to be Demolished

Posted by evilmrt on 17 October 2014 - 03:15 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.


Look at this from an architectural point of view....




It looks like some nondescript warehouse. 


Here's the Olympia having more charm even after being abandoned for several years....



#2541612 Joe Louis Arena to be Demolished

Posted by evilmrt on 16 October 2014 - 08:19 PM

I'm conflicted on this. I'm sure most of you guys that have been there over the years are as well. 


On one hand, the place has turned into somewhat of an stinkhole. The Joe is embarrassing compared to many of the nice new arenas built within the last 10-15 years. It has this weird post-apocalyptic vibe to it.


Until you sit down in your seat, anywhere. Then its magic.


This new arena better help me forget the ol' Joe, thats all I have to say!

Im just so damn excited that hockeys back, and have they posted if the preseason games are going to be televised on fsd?


I don't think FSD is going to be up and running until the Leafs are at the Joe for Preseason Game #5 on the 29th.

In other news, the biggest joke of a sports network is ESPN

#2536313 Nice article on Mantha

Posted by evilmrt on 16 September 2014 - 02:53 PM

Soooo apparently if Mantha plays less than 10 NHL games, his entry-level deal doesn't even start until next year...





That's quite the loophole...


There is absolutely no way KH is going to not take advantage of the "free year" of development. 


So, 9 games is all we get this year, folks.

Posted by evilmrt on 10 September 2014 - 09:07 PM

WTF is this? 


Chicago and Washington are not even close to being rivals. 


They could have....oh I don't know....given everyone Montreal and Boston


Or hey, how about Vancouver and San Jose in Seattle? I'm surprised Bettman wasn't all over that one. 

#2535828 2014 Preseason Thread

I wanted Semin a few years back when he got a one-year deal. That condition was low risk, high reward. Seven million committed for one season is more appealing than long-term for a player with questions about his work ethic.

The Wings desperately need a top-six winger that scores goals, though. Have since Hossa left.


No, we have Franzen, didn't you pay attention to what he said? 

#2535147 2014 Prospects Tournament Roster

Larkin's not attending because NCAA players can't.  NCAA violation if he does, I believe.  In fact IIRC, NCAA players who attend the development camp like Larkin did in July, have to foot their own bill to attend because of NCAA regs.
Edit...Info under the NHL section on development camps here: http://collegehockeyinc.com/faq#chl

That's one of the huge advantages of CHL over NCAA. Not to open a can of worms or anything.

#2535146 potential team names for las vegas!

Posted by evilmrt on 29 August 2014 - 08:35 AM

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.

#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???
