    Glad to know I'm not the only one who cares about those Wings. I wore my Stevie Y jersey today, too. Didn't know Captain Courageous wasn't in the lineup until I checked the box score. When that guy hangs it up, it will be a bittersweet day in the D indeed. Better not to think about it. :Cry:

    The guy is a class act. Not many come along like that. I think he's done after this year though. Hopefully he sticks around in some capacity (but not like poor Trammell).

    Yeah, I've always liked hockey. I even went to a couple games at the old red barn. Man...that place...it was like you were right on top of those guys and it was LOUD!!! Last game I saw there (guessing 1978) they beat the Atlanta Flames 4-1 in a playoff game. A guy named Dale McCourt scored a hat trick. :)

    Three (3) Canadian teams in the top 6 and 4 in the top 9. That would definitely be good to see. :nod:

    As much as I am a huge Wings fan, I'm trying not to get too exctied here. From what I've read the Blues are going to be a shocker if they make the playoffs.

    GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm wondering how many of the Canadien teams would have survived if they would have made the salary cap changes 20 years ago.

    Wings

    Good to see the Wings jump out of the gate stomping a mud hole in the Blues and walking it dry. LOL!!!:)

    I really missed hockey. It was strange without it. The winter just did not seem right without watching a Pistons game one night and the next watching a Wings game.

    The Wings are 3-0. They beat a good Calgary team yesterday. It's too early to judge, but so far the coaching change appears to be a good one. The reception for McCarty's return was great. :)

    Go Wings!

    Wings 15 goals in 3 games, 3-0, and Hank is looking like a bigger stud than Pavel.

    Albeit early, I'm happy that the Wings have been able to transition to the new style and do not seem to be caught up in the extreme penalty taking and slow skating that some other squads are struggling with.

    Looks like the team is mostly intact

    I like Manny in goal. He's earned his chance.
    PS. We own the Blues.

    Vancouver is next. They're good too.

    Todd Bertuzzi has returned to the team . :mad: I'd prefer to see him behind bars after what he did to tell the truth.

    You've got to remember that Dats missed most of training camp, and Zetts was there the whole time with Babcock... Samuleson seems to be THE stud of the moment. 4 gals in 4 games so far...

    Don't diss on the Dats mang!!!

    How is it D. Hasek is with the Senators? Doesn't he owe us about 4 mil.?

    Where are all the hockey fans? Has anyone noticed the Wings are 7-1? Could the new coach have something to do with this? Awesome!!!!!!

    HOCKEY HOCKEY HOCKEY

    Let's go Red Wings!!!

    7 -1... The young guns are stepping it up...

    And where did Samuelson come from???!!! The guy is playing out of his mind right now.

    Legace is making it really tough for anyone to take the starting job from him.

    Dats is getting his groove.

    Lang is business as usual.

    Fischer has 3 goals already.

    Wait, let me say that again...

    FISCHER HAS 3 GOALS ALREADY.

    Hull retired, Hatcher's injury prone... so long fellas, best of luck.

    Babcock seems to have this team playing with Playoff intensity...

    No, Hasek doesn't owe us anything... best of luck... he's doing very well in Ottawa.

    CuJo wishes he'd have stayed in Toronto rather than signing with the Wings... have fun in the desert.

    I miss D-Mac and Dandenault... on to greener pastures?

    Wooley is back... I'm sort of indifferent on that one.

    Kronwall is out, and that sucks.

    Shanny will still drop the gloves.

    Hockey rules. Go Wings!!!

    Hockey fans

    I'm washing my Yzerman jersey as I write. It got a little dusty in the closet, sitting there for a year. Give it some time. People will be back. Usually, in these lockouts/strikes, the fans are given very little consideration. We're the victims. As a victim, I need a little more healing time.
