When, just when, will this game, and the NHL, stop shooting themselves in the foot? 

Seriously. It's a niche sport, embrace it!! Instead of f****** around with these stupid ideas that just ultimately diminish other areas of the game in order to 'attract more fans' or 'grow the game'. Pro sports are really beginning to **** me off.

I know it's only been a week, but I've really missed the wings. LGW!! 


In Topic: Time for Teemu?

22 January 2015 - 09:19 AM

Overall, I think I was happy with the way Teemu played during his call up. Better than last season's 3 games for sure. I still think he was over anxious to shoot at times, although that's probably a product of the fact that all everyone has been talking about is his slapshot, how good it is, and how he's the next Brett Hull. 

 

Still, he certainly didn't look out of place, and played reasonably well defensively. IMO, he's gotta make quicker decisions with the puck, cause a couple times he turned it over because he took too long. That being said, i was super happy for him when he scored. Here's hoping we see him back soon. We need that right hand shot and his bomb.

 

Can you imagine if in a couple years time we could line up Sproul and Pulkkinen at the point of the power play? 


In Topic: 1/20 GDT: Wild 4 @ Red Wings 5 (SO)

The promising thing here is that they managed to find a way to win the game despite not bringing it. Yes the Wild didn't generate much on their own through 40, but that 3rd period should have been nowhere near close. 

 

Ericsson's blunder took me right back to the 07' playoffs and it was as if Lilja had been reborn. Regardless, everyone makes mistakes, and the Wings should have shut the game down. I have a feeling that they got a little over confident perhaps and with a 4-1 lead heading into the 3rd and the prospect of a week off, most players wanted to go on vacation. 

 

Still awesome to see Teemu pot his first in possibly his final game with the wings for a while. 


In Topic: Stadium series Wings vs Avs 2016!

I don't care if it's the Wings and every rival they've ever had, the Stadium Series needs to die.  

 

Agreed 100%. This is a pure money grab from the league, and what's worse is that its totally depreciated the Winter classic in the process. 

 

In fact, what they probably should do, but won't, is not hold any outdoor games for a few years. 

 

Less is more you know?
