You complain that a can on faygo costs 35 cents? A can of coke is almost 70 pence here in Scotland! Thats $1.08 to you guys! How much would that make Suter cost here??

Really great poster. Congrats on getting it posted by the wings official page!
Going to be sad not having #5 next year, but its good that he could leave on his own terms without regret! Cheers Lidstrom!

If it wasn't NHL 13 and dats had been on before i'd be tempted to vote for a goalie. Jimmah for 14?

@Twig don't get me wrong, i don't doubt that he could have a positive impact on the team, but i do really dislike him. That's one of the things i love about detroit, they don't have a guy that plays dirty. But maybe you're right and thats exactly what we need.

Steve Ott? Hells no. Thats one player that i genuinely think that i will never like. Even if he came here and scored 50 goals, he'd still be a dick. Ovechkin or Iginla would be pretty cool, but i can't see it happening.
Awesome stuff! He's starting to look like Peter Gibbons' neighbor in Office Space

@Twig @teddywings I'd like to see Phoenix or LA win the cup this year, hopefully by sweeping the flyers in the finals...

@brendanksullivan You're more than welcome! I wish i could go to a game next season, but being a poor student in Scotland it seems unlikely, haha! One day though, i'll make it across to see them at the Joe

Also, in case i forget to post this on the season recap. Massive props to the writers (and graphics artist? Josh) on NOHS, cheers for all the post(er)s throughout the season, its been great reading them.
Well, its been good (except when it hasn't). But a disappointing end to the season. I think i'll steer clear of the whisky tonight, in case i break something. LGRW
When I had a bit of spare time, I had a go at making one of these movie posters. I have now put it up online, so that you can all see it. I realize it's not as good as most of Josh's, but it's at least for a film that didn't have Adam Sandler in it... enjoy, and feel free to use it if you want! http://byangoma.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=scraps#/d4v85rg

The tigers just won their first real game of 2012, would only be right if the wings won tonight too.

If i'm honest, it seems very lenient on quincey. I would of had it down for being at least 2 or 3 games

Franzen looks like he's skating and trying to solve a maths problem that he can't do, but is rubbish at multi-tasking.

@Matthew_ruta 4 a piece!
Oh dear 1-0 down already... Lidstrom is playing though!
I've not been this excited or shaky in the last period of a game in a while. The game was close and the scores showed it. I think this was a turning point. 8 games left, 6 at the joe, lets get 16 points. LGRW

@erinnoelle i bet a month ago nobody thought anyone would be saying that. Still, its a bit of a relief.

@DetCapC19 What if sharks grab 8th spot and beat St Louis? Playing against the sharks or the blues worries me unless the wings step it up soon and get healthy. At any rate getting Stanley this year is going to be hard.

Cleary on the second line with his gammy knee? Should get Abby up there!
2 years, 5 months ago on Detroit vs. San Jose: One Step Forward, Two Steps Back. | March
Ugh. I was confident about this one. Bed time for me. 3:40am here, i'm not going to put effort to stay up and watch if the wings aren't going to put effort in putting the puck in the net. Its a shame, because joey was looking good out there for the most part.
2 years, 5 months ago on Duck Hunt | March
Its nice to see #44 on ice tonight. Play looks a lot better so far, by this time yesterday i was ready for bed. Lets get that elusive W!
Did they remember to put tape on their sticks or did they just smear them with butter? The passing was awful last night. Powerplay is bad. Zone entry was bad. PP is bad. Lack of effort. Powerplay was bad. PK was bad, oh and, the powerplay is awful. Hate being so negative about it, but that was a game we should have won and needed to win to have any chance at the central. LGRW
2 years, 5 months ago on Red Wings Recap: 3.13.12 | March
Maybe being on a line with Helm would force Franzen to move a little more, here's to hoping. Looking forward to see how Nyquist does on the ice as a wing.

so, by that logic, Voracek was over 10 feet away and had plenty of time to get his head up and see/avoid/brace for kronwall
2 years, 5 months ago on Kronwalled: An Analysis of the Voracek Hit | March
If he gets suspended i will lose a lot of respect for the nhl. This hockey, a physical game, where the players know the risks involved and should look out for themselves accordingly. Don't turn it into soccer, where you need wet-suits for all the diving.
shame that there's nothing about it on the front page of the nhl website.

Didn't realise that they were having a Mark Howe number retirement ceremony tonight. Pretty cool to see all the Howes there to watch the game!
Although he didn't appear on the scoreboard, i saw Brad Stuart doing a couple of nice moves out there, I will miss him if he does leave this summer. Anyway, useless trivia time! Wings just shut-out the only team that have shut the wings out this season! (Oct 29th) I love watching the wings play 60 mins of wings hockey in a game. LGRW
2 years, 6 months ago on Red Wings Recap: 3.2.2012 | March
@nickyno His failings this year led the wings to giving joey mac another chance, which has turned out to be great! So indirectly he has helped solve our goalie woes by playing fairly poorly this year (good so far in GR though). But, still, only good for the wrong reasons. failure? or neutral?
2 years, 6 months ago on Bring 'Em Back: Grading Those Who Have Returned To The Winged Wheel | March
The first two periods were awful. And our pp? shorthanded goals given up in consecutive games and only as many pp goals. Hudler was really bad on the pp last night. Saying that though, the shorthanded goal seemed to light a fire under the wings, giving them the energy and drive, which was previously lacking, to destroy the CBJ in the third. Z was awesome. Kronwall was boss. LGRW

@freakazoid0587 @DetCapC19 They have one more regulation or overtime win than us
2 years, 6 months ago on Detroit vs Columbus: Worst Team Ever? | February
Joey Mac in net tonight
Franzen on third line
Lidstrom not playing
Going to be different from what we are used to anyway
I guess its good that this didn't crop up during the playoffs, then it could have been a big concern. I'm not too worried, this is where we can show the rest of the league a bit of the depth that the wings have. LGRW
2 years, 6 months ago on Ah Crap - Datysuk Has Knee Surgery, Out Two Weeks | February
@Instinctz He sure was. As much as I like conks, Joey should be our backup. I don't worry when he's in net, and the team seems to play better in front of him than in front of Ty. Can't argue with his 5-1-1 either!
2 years, 6 months ago on Predators vs Red Wings Recap: 22 and Counting | February
@lizanne1013 600th point
I really noticed Abdelkator putting on a lot of pressure at points last night. He's a keeper. Also, how about the Blackhawks 9th consecutive loss! That puts them equal with LA and only 3 points into a playoff spot...
2 years, 6 months ago on Stars vs Red Wings Recap: The Record is Ours, Hockeytown | February
Rinaldo is possibly getting suspended for a few games from the nasty hit on Ericsson. http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=616653 I was worried initially when joey gave them that first goal , but after that it was a really good game to watch. Hank was on fire tonight as well, i love seeing him play well and get rewarded for it! LGRW

@moorecha apologies for the upset, but unfortunately its going to happen (obviously not for a decade or so). I am just merely saying that if god forbid it did happen, there would always be that silver lining.
