  1. Lack tweeted out he was okay thankfully, sucks he got injured on another beauty of an AA goal (can players stop pushing people into their own goalies? I don't understand! The worst of my knee injuries was in high school when someone got pushed into me and my foot planted but my knee twisted as I went down). Figures that the Wings are scraping together points right now, with how bad they've been it is insane that they aren't mathematically eliminated.
  2. Decent size, barely any offensive skills from what I've read. Physical-ish. I'm fairly surprised McIlrath didn't get the call but when you're at this point in the call ups I don't think it matters much. Renouf will continue the Red Wing #77 excellence of Paul Coffey I have no doubt....
  3. Seems odd to see his name pop up for a college gig while he's still employed by the Red Wings. I do think he seems to be a better college/minors coach just based on his past success and how he's looked running a NHL bench so I imagine it would be a win/win for both the Wings and UofM.
  4. Thank you for the kind (and hilarious) words everybody! Now that I've settled into my new role at work I have enough down time to poke my head in again here.... Filip Hronek and Givani Smith were assigned to Grand Rapids, I'm a bit surprised by Smith since I think he can play junior next year but I'm guessing he may just be for practice experience? Excited about Hronek, he really killed it on Saginaw on a bad team, did really well in comparison to other highly drafted/thought of prospects (albeit at an older age after a year in the Czech mens league...but only about 8 and half a minutes per game which could explain how the Wings were able to grab him with the extra second round pick in the Datsyuk trade). Hronek ended up fourth in the OHL in points for defensemen with 61 points in 59 games, and the guys ahead of him played more games (though two are at 81/73 points). Like I said, Saginaw was terrible (only Smith's Storm were worse in their conference, wooo) and were -44 in goal differential as a team, so even though plus/minus is a stupid stat for the most part, Hronek being a +15 is pretty wild. With Cholowski having a solid but uninspiring freshman year I think it is safe to say that Hronek is going to be the real gem of the Datsyuk trade if there is one.
  5. Thankfully Mantha wasn't benched as long as me! Got married and a job promotion so I have less time to impose my crappy opinions on you all!
  6. Long time no talk... Mantha OT winner last night was purty: https://streamable.com/hp83b
  7. Judging by the rule on the NHL's website it seems pretty clear that it was a penalty:
  8. I sure hope not. At least he is saying the right things to me: “We’re not going to be a buyer. We’re not going to trade future assets to try to bring in somebody to make us a little better. We’re either going to stand pat or we’re going to see if teams have interest in some of our players. That’s what I’ll work the phone to do here over the next three to four weeks,” Holland told the Jamie and Stoney Show on 97.1 The Ticket on Thursday. Hopefully he is true to his word and can find some worth while sellers deals.
  9. Great picture choice.
  10. But does he eat at Comet Pizza?
  11. Guess it could be better that he isn't in the situation room....
  12. http://www.vox.com/2017/2/2/14488448/stream-protection-rule Pollute those streams!
  13. We'll put children in handcuffs at airports because they could pose a threat but don't need to [extreme, bigly] vet gun owners? http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/house-hones-social-security-gun-background-check-rule-article-1.2962718 "Lawmakers are moving toward scrapping an Obama administration rule requiring gun background checks for Social Security recipients mentally incapable of managing their own affairs. The regulation was issued in the final months of President Barack Obama’s term." Seems like a good thing to look into to me?
  14. It's a shame that lunatic is given any sort of platform.
