Red Wings All the Way
« on: April 13, 2017, 08:27:46 pm »
Is anyone else out there a hockey nut? What's your team? Obviously I worship the Detroit Red Wings. Pavel Datsyuk was always my favorite player. Not just for Detroit, but the whole league. Niklas Lidstrom was just as amazing, but I think there may be a reason they called Datsyuk "The Magician". I remember seeing him make the most unbelievable move I have ever seen. He was moving to the right of the goal with the puck, going a million miles an hour, pulled the puck around behind him, shot a backwards shot from behind, and scored. I've never seen anything like it. I don't know if any of the legends (think Wayne Gretzsky) have ever made a move like that.

One thing I won't watch again is the all star game. I mean a couple years ago I made it a point to watch the game. It seemed everyone on the ice forgot how to play hockey. Especially the goalies! The final score was 19-11. 19-11! When a 5 point game is a severely high scoring game, the "all star" game made me sick. Everyone was like "oh I'm sorry, you can have the puck if you want it." "oh I wouldn't dream of taking the puck from you."

Gag me with a hockey stick!

I'm a major hockey addict! Although it's been hard to watch the last few years as an Avs fan :( . Current favorite player is Matt Duchene, all time is Peter Forsberg.

I live in a state where basketball is religion so I never really watched hockey. But I started watching about mid way through the season and I am hooked! I'm having withdraws already for next season. I'm a Penguins fan. I know, bandwagon, I know. But the first guy I saw play hockey when I was a kid was Mario Lemieux. Of course, I'm going to be a fan of the team he played for and owns now. Ready to see the Pens 3Peat next year!

Count me in!

Since it's off-season there's little hockey to watch now but if someone puts up a thread in October and wants to talk hockey, I promise I'll drop by for a chat.

Welcome to the club  ;D For me it's Pens all the way. I've been a fan a bit longer though, since before the Sully era. #71 was the one that did the trick for me. I guess that Crosby guy is good at hockey, too.

In addition to 3peat, one of the things I'm looking forward to next season is to see Sprong play. He did play in 2015 when Johnston was the head coach, think it was too early of an NHL debut for him at that point but the team was one huge dumpster fire the first half of that season anyway. I'd like to see him again now.

I don't much care for the Wings but Pavs is the man. I know he plays for SKA St. Petersburg for now but I have to admit I haven't been following how he's been doing there.

Was this the one where "fans" voted in John Scott as a huge f you to Gary Bettman?
Either way, ASG is a joke, I wouldn't watch it either.

Right on! Geno is my favorite too(current team)! Yeah the Crosby guy is kinda good isn't he? I know it got a lot of flack but I love the Ryan Reaves trade. He's a better hockey player than people think and not just an enforcer. And I'd like to see more Carter Rowney whether it's C or W. Just gives a different energy.

Good to see I'm not alone  ;D

I haven't got a strong opinion on him one way or another, but in Sully I trust so I'm going to take a guess and say he'll do fine in Pittsburgh! I don't know what it is but since Sullivan took over as a head coach it's looked like the Pens have won every trade they made. Daley and Schultz in particular come to mind (then again Daley for Rob Scuderi was a steal to begin with, Sullivan or not...)

I'm a long time Detroit Red Wings fan as well. I've been watching hockey since the late 60's and seen a lot of changes in the NHL. Some of them I like and some not so much.  The closest NHL city to me is Nashville about three hours to the east.  I'd like to try to make it to some Preds game this season. The Red Wings are in Nashville in February.  I may have to put that on my to do list.
