Going to the Joe for the First Time!

14 January 2014 - 10:17 AM

Hey guys, as the title would suggest, I’m going to the Joe for the first time this Saturday to watch our boys play the Kings, and I’m super pumped about it!


The reason I’m posting is that I'm looking for a little bit of help. I'm a Canadian from northern Ontario, and therefor am not familiar with the area. The wife booked us a hotel in Windsor for the night, and so my question would be: is there an efficient way to get to and from the Joe without driving (I plan on having a few beverages) from Windsor? If not, where would be the best/safest place to park (I’m not a fan of arena parking lots, and am not opposed to taking a cab)?


I plan on driving down early Saturday morning, so we should have plenty of time before the game. Are there any attractions or sights worth seeing? Places a diehard Red Wings fan needs to go to? Is the Joe an adequate place to buy RW memorabilia, or is there a better place?


I appreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks guys.




Ops, feel free to move this thread if its in the wrong place.


Abby in for game 6... Who draws out?

Gotta imagine it'll be Bert or Sammy.


Bert, IMO, played a better game 5, but Sammy scored. It'll be interesting to see what Babs decides.. maybe Eaves comes out?



Teemu Pulkkinen heading to Grand Rapids

Title says it all.


Looks like he wont have to return after a set amount of games either, like Jarnkrok.

Gus Nyquist...

...is your up to date AHL scoring leader, with 52 points in 51 games.


Just thought some might like to know that. Apologies if it's been discussed elsewhere, i could not find it.





Ryan Whitney

Looks like Whitney has fallen out of favor with the Oil. Going to be a healthy scratch for the 3rd time in the last 5 games.


"I'm very frustrated, I want to play," Whitney said. "We got outshot 40-13 and I'm not playing so I think that kind of shows where their thought on me is."


Wonder if he could be heading out of Edmonton soon. $4 Million cap hit, last year of his contract. 6'3, 210lbs PP QB.
