    Thought I would post this (two weeks old now), THN rated the Wings the best all around franchise in the NHL... even with the crappy attendance these days.

    Figure I'd bump this up.

    Is it just me... or is every other Wing fan over impressed with our so called "too old" goaltending situation??

    I had a argument with a friend while playing him at NHL 08 over the PS2 on the net. He was trying to tell me that both Ozzy and Hasek will burn out and lose in the playoffs for us....

    Pretty sure with two solid goalies we don't have to worry about one getting over worked.

    the way they are splitting games now, they are going to be just fine down the stretch. These guys aren't just old goalies who've never felt the pressure/stress of a season + playoffs, they, as well as the coaches, know how to manage themselves over this season. Howard will start here and there too i'd believe, prob end of jan at some point. The Wings have nothing to worry about AT ALL in net.

    I expected it to be good, but certainly not this good. Especially not Ozzy. I figured Dom would be better, but he seems to be rounding into midseason form, so I'm not worried.

    Not to change the subject on ya (even though though that's exactly what I'm doing, sorry) but you know what I would love to see? The Wings keep this lineup the entire season, don't make any significant moves at the deadline, and win with the team thye have now. Maybe I'm getting a little overexcited with the 7 gm streak, but the kids are really starting to round into form, goaltending is obviously not an issue, nor is defence, Dats is now on fire, and Zetts continues play fantastically. I know it's early to be talking cup. but I would just love to see that happen. Although, I guess that's kinda what every teams' fans hope for, lol. I just think it would be especially nice this year if they didn't give up a solid young kid or prospect at the deadline for a marginal upgrade, for once, and won with the team they have.

    Never too early with this team, there's no secret that Bowmans usually makes Detroit the lowest payout to win the cup every year.

    Hey Wings fans, any news on Holmstrom? I just traded for him last week, wondering if this knee problem is serious or if you guys are waiting for the MRI just like I am.

    coach Mike Babcock said he received good news on Tomas Holmstrom. The MRI on his right knee revealed no ligament damage, only a bone bruise. Babcock said he's not sure how many more games Holmstrom will miss, but it's definitely not a long-term injury.

    Thanks. That's a definite relief. Didn't want to be losing Holmstrom a day after losing Williams.

    Hopefully Zett's back isn't too bad either... I was hoping this would be the year he plays a full season. Nuts.

    Wings vs Avs tonight. Although the rivalry isn't what it was a few years back, there's still room for good hearted antagonizing.

    Meet the 2007/2008 Official mascot of your Colorado Avalanche:

    Sounds like Zetts should be back tonight... which is a damn good thing. When was the last time the Wings were shut out before the last loss to the Blues?? anyone know?

    Not this year for sure. The announcers for the STL game said that was the first time this year the Wings have been shut out, so you'd have to back to at least last season sometime, if not before.

    edit: after a quick check, looks like late APR last season was the last time, a 2-0 loss to SJ (which they subsequently avenged in the 2nd round of the playoffs )

    Figured I'd bump this and just thank the Big Red Machine for helping me lead the UKHL by over 60 points now I believe. Have to love a league where you pick your team and use only Red Wing players. Must say, the team hasn't let me down much at all

    I have a feeling the Dominator will string some good second half SO's together and get close to the 9 he had last year. I was worried at the start of the year about Dom, but like last year he has proved me wrong.

    Wow... another SO. The team is rolling, but why is the scoring slumping now?

    Also congrats to Chelly for now being the second oldest player to ever play the game! Beat Gordie Chris! you can do it!

    Too bad you too poor eyk, out of curiousity what are the ticket prices? My friend in Toronto keeps telling me that they are going to move the team because they can't pack the building and are selling $9 tickets

    Clearly he's just jealous that our team is so dominate, but is there any truth to it?

    man, good to see both "over-the-hill" goalies are playing great. possibly, if not hands down, the best 1-2 goalie punch in the league. they are looking real stable and i love the trade off of games and it appears they do too. the Wings, even with the lower scoring of late, just keep gettin it done. Amazing. this team has some great depth, gotta love it!

    haha, they where talking about this last night during one of the INT during the Habs game on TSN last night, they said Chelly is in such good shape that they are sure he wants to play at least intill he's 52 years old, so he can break Howe's record, as the oldest player ever to play, means about another 6 years of playing for Chelly

    I saw the "Be A Player Episode" years back when they showed what Chris and Rob Blake do all summer for work outs. It's pretty damn intense, so it wouldn't surprise me if he did. His body can handle it.

    Also on a side note, mad props to the Wings on having 50% of the starting line up for the West All-Stars! That must be close to a record.

    Yeah I something like that on the two of them, maybe the same show, it was pretty nuts.

    I'd say EASILY the best 1-2 combo in the league, without question.

    Just noticed that we have probably one of the toughest challenges of the year coming up. Ottawa - Detroit on Saturday! Should be a solid game, see how the Ottawa goalie (whoeevr it is then) handles all those shots!

    Now only if he would put some points on the board and he'd make a great keeper!

    The LEafs are in SJ Sat, right? Does that mean this might be the early game with the Leafs in the late game on CBC? Or is either game an afternoon game?

    Nice! Should be a great Wings/OTT game. Both teams should be pretty jacked up for it! Then Tosk facing his old team. Should be a good night for hockey watching, around here anyway.
