#2434932 Franzen: "I am not a goal scorer"

How about pics. ;)



#2434844 Any new Helm Updates?

Posted by MidMichSteve on 03 September 2013 - 06:33 PM




Helm, who has been battling back issues for the past eight months, has been skating regularly for a couple of weeks. Babcock said he “absolutely'' expects the third-line center to be ready for the start of training camp, Sept. 12 at Centre I.C.E. in Traverse City.

“I didn't see him today, so he must be doing really good,'' Babcock said. “He had another day off, I would assume. Things are going good for him. He must be ready to go.''

#2434475 Teemu Selanne to return for a final season

That's hilarious! I'm glad he's playing another year.


Teemu wasn't always such a class act when playing against the Wings. :)

#2433906 New enemies, whom do you fear the most?

Which team(s) do you fear might give us real problems?


The teams that are at the bottom of the standings.

#2433806 San Jose Sharks decide to use practice jerseys from now on...

Posted by MidMichSteve on 22 August 2013 - 06:41 AM

They're changing to the practice uniforms because they don't choke in practice. They're hoping it will carry over to the games.

#2430212 Brendan Smith signs 2-year, $2.525m contract with Red Wings

Posted by MidMichSteve on 15 July 2013 - 05:56 PM

Good for him. I like the kid a lot. He should be a bona fide top 4 D-man after 2 more years of experience.

#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]
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.

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

#2421733 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by MidMichSteve on 24 June 2013 - 11:13 AM

Ducks and Sharks are still my most hated rivals.


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

#2421404 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

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

#2421256 Saddledome Under Water

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).
