How about "The Kicking Tires Arena" 

Noooo that's the parking garage name.

"The Dan Cleary Center" sounds pretty good.

Do we really need to keep rehashing the same joke over and over again?

That was so aweful...makes Ozzy and Draper look like Daniel-Day Lewis clones. I seriously cant stand Kane in any sense...such a serious wiener.


wow, what an idiotic commercial

Meh, add it to the list of all the other things that were supposed to transform Detroit:  Comerica Park, Ford Field, The SuperBowl, the All Star Game, the Casinos, the Cobo Expansion.  I'll believe it when I see it.  There was supposed to be a big entertainment and housing expansion with Comerica and Ford Field, too.


Not getting all the affection for Joe Louis Arena.  That place was a dump even before it opened.  It was totally thrown together without much thought.

#2532259 Australian Ice Hockey?

Posted by PredsFanTheBayouState on 16 July 2014 - 01:31 PM

It's a scrappy little league.. The videos are fun - if not a bit - ODD.


i watch the Australian ice hockey,because our minor team down here in louisiana has two players that are playing in the league this season.It is  semi-professional league. Typically this means that players are not paid to play in the AIHL, but receive other benefits such as the use of a car, accommodation, flights/travel within Australia, and other benefits. Often these benefits are supplied or funded by sponsors and vary from team to team.


The  games are shorter than typical hockey games, consisting of two 15-minute periods and a 20 minute 3rd, instead of three 20-minute periods that are usually played under normal North American and IIHF hockey regulations.

Did somebody say Hampus Melen?

Hampus Melen must still be injured or still playing in Sweden so I'm glad we gave a tryout to Hampus Gustafsson to fullfill our organizational need for more Hampus.

If Dan Daniel Danny Cleary returns and Anthony Mantha starts the season in GR, the whole world can go get bent.

#2530000 Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Posted by Jesusberg on 04 July 2014 - 04:58 PM

I don't think they part with Jurco.  He's the big bodied power forward every team wants.  Sheahan was just signed, and Holland doesn't do sign and trades.  It's gotta be Tatar, Kindl, Andersson, maybe Helm, who while he's an impact player might be slightly redundant now that we have Sheahan.

Agree, and I think Helm would be an attractive piece in Winnipeg's eyes. Though, I'd always hoped he'd be part of a Bogosian deal, not a Byfuglien one.


Found this in a Google search: http://www.talk-spor...ustin_Byfuglien

An entire forum devoted to hating Byfuglien. I don't get it. He has a fitness problem. Or did, I don't know if he still does. But I see things like "rapper wannabe" and "rap sheet" which makes me wonder if its some weird race-based judgement. I mean, his rap sheet is what, a drunken boating charge? He doesn't seem that bad to me. Especially if he is turning his fitness level around.

I remember the fitness issues, but I agree with the race-based judgement stuff. That really seems to have no bearing on his play on the ice.

Too fat

If he really is a rap artist, I do believe it would be "2Phat".
