#2270796 Datsyuk says he is playing tomorrow

Posted by MidMichSteve on 16 March 2012 - 02:53 PM

Dats is back? I went to NHL.COM and it isn't even mentioned.

The OP must be mistaken, the NHL always promotes the return of their star players.

#2267111 Dearborn councilman assaulted outside JLA

Damned idiot(s). :ranting: I hope they get busted ASAP.

The sad thing is people tend to paint their opinions of other fan bases with a wide brush. Not all, or even a majority, of Vancouver fans rioted after the SCF. It was a very small minority. I'll bet almost all Flyers' fans were appalled at the recent assault on the Rangers' fan.

I would hope that most people realize that. Detroit doesn't need, or deserve, the negative publicity.

#2266869 Datsyuk's on the ice for today's practice

Posted by MidMichSteve on 05 March 2012 - 01:46 PM

Which is what they have done. They sit tied for 3rd in the NHL right now, and only 2 points out of 1st in the league. I think thats pretty darn good. :)

Right! :clap:

Dats skating is great news! I didn't expect him to hit the ice so soon. I don't thing the Wings will panic, they'll wait until he's healed to get him back out there.

It's a good thing in a couple of ways. Dats, Jimmy and Lids are getting some rest and the team is learning how to play without their best players in the lineup.

I was pleased with how the Wings played yesterday, against a good team, with a very depleted lineup. Smith's play, in particular. :thumbup:

I'm not worried in the least.

#2264065 2012 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - February 27th, 3:00 PM ET

Get ready for a round one exit. Again! Well, when I consider the officiating problems of the NHL, our typical early round ouster, The salary cap & Kenny's insistence on making the Donny Osmond of Hockey teams, I have seen my last game for the year. Maybe next year??? Have a great summer everybody. I may watch Nashville though. They are going to be fun!!!

#2259475 Canucks Vs Detroit in Motor City

Posted by MidMichSteve on 20 February 2012 - 09:08 PM

The game in Chicago on Tuesday is the most important to me. After the Hawks' game, Vancouver's will be the most important.

Yeah, by 1% and last season's poll had Detroit at #1. It is only obvious that if 15% of the players would want to play for Chicago, that their head coach would be #1 as well. OF course last season Bylsma was #1 with Detroit being #1...

...besides, that whole come to Detroit because it's Detroit has died down since the Cap era began. More parity in the league has led to more successful teams. But one thing cannot be denied, no matter who "wants" to come play here, the ones that do rarely ever leave and it hasn't stopped the Big Red Machine from being the most successful NHL franchise in the last 20+ years! Which is huge considering that the "CAP" and "PARITY" was supposed to bring Detroit Monster down to its knees...

...epic fail by Bettman. Maybe he will try again this summer...


#2259023 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Posted by MidMichSteve on 19 February 2012 - 03:34 PM

We won. Of course it's possible that the Sharks could end our streak. We do play them again next season.

I see what you did there :lol: Great game, :thumbup: I'm glad you got to watch it.

#2249378 Cooke Boards or Jackman Dives?

Posted by MidMichSteve on 25 January 2012 - 05:17 PM

Looks like the Blues may have learned something from the Detroit game. Nobody went after Cooke.
