#2522288 TSN POY: Hertl vs Gustav Nyquist

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 01 June 2014 - 01:44 AM

The way these contests are won is dumb. I'm over it now. It should be one vote per email. This system proves nothing but who has the better tech guys.

#2520397 Canada can support 3 more teams in 20yrs

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 14 May 2014 - 01:24 PM

The Canadian sports media goes crazy over any Canadian team now and I'm sure CBC or TSN would be all over a deal. Hell, CBC even shows games in Punjabi so I'm sure they'd want to serve English Nordique fans. As for financial backing, the municipality is building them a rink and there's not even a team yet so clearly there's money to back them. 


Also, the Canadian dollar argument isn't as meaningful as it used to be since the CAN dollar has been pretty high for quite a while.


The problem with expansion in Canada from the NHL point of view is that the media and citizens are already into hockey. That is, the NHL wants teams in new areas (like Seattle) where the television market is large and they can get new fans watching hockey, buying merchandise, etc. As I said before, I would like a team in Quebec City.

#2518734 Ken Holland Quotes (Apr 29th

Posted by Uncle Danny on 01 May 2014 - 05:07 PM

Can we please shelve the "kick the tires," "we like our team," "(player x getting healthy) is our deadline acquisition," and "our PP is our enforcer" jokes alongside "(player y) is lazy and sucks," and "what's to stop Chris Chelios from..." as tired?  I'm begging you, please.  This board needs new material.



PS:  The beard quote is pretty great.

The Montreal Canadiens where down 3-1 to the Boston Bruins and came back and beat them 3-4. So there is no reason why Detroit can't do the same. 

#2511759 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

Posted by puckloo39 on 20 April 2014 - 11:22 AM

thanks for the stellar GDT, Mike, it's much appreciated!!    Wings will really have to man up for this one (including DeKe)  if they want to prevail. 


Bruins have already shown they are dirty and willing to do whatever they have to, even if they hurt the other team's players... heads on swivels, guys... especially you, Pasha.   They will be trying to take out Pasha, Gus Gus and Jimmy... but I am sure the Wings know this, too.


Out-smart them, out-play them and take them down the right way, Wings.

Posted by Andrew Hasek 1986 on 18 April 2014 - 09:05 PM

Wow we win this game 1-0 Against Boston. Never could have dreamed that one up. Everything we read they all picked Boston to win. Guess the people in Los Vegas are shaking right now? 3 Games left to win I know we can win this Series. And Jimmy was so outstanding what a Goalie he was worth the money we played for him that's for sure!

It's almost required NOT to make sense! That's what makes sports fandom great!


 It's all very childish but that's why we have sports, right?

Posted by Andrew Hasek 1986 on 05 April 2014 - 05:45 PM

Caps are tied 3-3 going into the 3rd period. Caps just may win this one. I hope not. I hope Toronto Maple Leafs lose tonight to ATL I mean WPG Jets. Red Wings I hope win tonight. Will be shown on CBC tonight where I live. Will be watching the game. Hope we win. Montreal is a really good team this year. We have to play a Solid 60 Mins to win the game.

#2503524 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by frankgrimes on 30 March 2014 - 02:58 PM

Michigan boys like Legwand?


 Well yeah  but in their prime or prospects :-)



You trade from strength to address a weakness, and that's exactly what we did. How it works out is also important, of course, but just not the only important factor.


Thats why I've wanted defense :-)

Nyquist is going to have to step it up. His 2 goals a game isn't getting it done. He needs 4 goals tonight for us to have a chance at winning.

Nobody knows what happened with the logistics of the deal except Holland, Poile, and maybe the NSA. Any guesses as to progression of negotiations are just conjecture and I don't believe they add much weight to any argument.

Aren't we passed the trade deadline? It's early to be talking about offseason trades.
