#2429313 Smith files for arbitration

Posted by MidMichSteve on 10 July 2013 - 06:13 PM

 

It's just that, at times, he didn't play those games very well.

 

I like his upside ... he should be very good, in time.

 

Agreed. He just needs a couple years like most D-men do. Ericsson took 4-5 years to become a decent player.

Thanks for the memories. Best of luck, Fil except against the Wings, of course.




#2425820 The Overreaction Thread

Posted by MidMichSteve on 04 July 2013 - 12:14 PM

'

This statement has to be one of the most lazy, thoughtless cliches in all of sports fandom. Just because fans want their team to improve or because they criticize moves or the lack thereof does not make those fans "spoiled." It makes them passionate. That's the definition of being a fan.

I think the term fan comes from the word fanatic.

fa·nat·ic [fuh-nat-ik]
noun
1.
a person with an extreme and uncritical enthusiasm or zeal, as in religion or politics.

Smart move on passing. Say it with me. NOT. WORTH. SIX. MILLION. 

 

NOT. WORTH. SIX. MILLION.

Damn! Maybe the Wings can get revenge in next season's SCF.

Ducks and Sharks are still my most hated rivals.

 

Next year will probably be Boston of Toronto and I can't wait.

If Chicago wins the Finals, Kane will get the Conn Smythe. :scared: Please win this Boston.

So if the stadium is unusable when the nhl season starts where would the flames play? 

There may be an arena available in Phoenix (Glendale).

Eddie O, "Crawford with three A+ saves." What an idiot.




#2420497 Grand Rapids Griffins Win Calder Cup! 5-2 win in game 6

Posted by MidMichSteve on 18 June 2013 - 09:12 AM

Here's something about the "loaner" the Griffins are riding in.

That's really nice but I was hoping the loaner would be this:

Bruins will take it.  I'm guessing 6 but I'd like to be wrong and see them do exactly what they did to the Penguins.

 

I'm hoping Boston is not THAT much better than the Hawks. :scared:

 

The Wings have to play in their division next year. I'm hoping the Bruins take it in 6-7 games.

LET'S GO BRUINS!!!!

#2418420 Dekeyser on his way to Grand Rapids

Posted by MidMichSteve on 07 June 2013 - 08:30 PM

The touted defenseman, who played 11 games with the Detroit Red Wings before he broke his right thumb and underwent surgery May 7, will be part of the regular rotation Saturday when the Griffins meet Syracuse in Game 1 of the series at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 8.

“It’s been getting better and better since the surgery and it feels right about 100 percent now,” DeKeyser said after the Griffins’ practice at War Memorial Arena.

 

 

DeKeyser ready for Calder Cup opener.

#2418179 ECF - (4) Boston Bruins vs. (1) Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by MidMichSteve on 06 June 2013 - 02:19 PM

Gotta say I feel sorry for the people that think a low scoring game is boring. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole game. I have to give Crosby kudos for his hustle when he had his lid removed. He almost ended the game all by himself.

 

Best non-Wings game I've seen in a long time.
