the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Can't post yet but someone else please feel free to make it a topic. Tickets went on sale today for UM vs Stanford basketball at the Brooklyn Hoops Holiday Invitational. Anyone who wants them can use presale code WOLVERINES in the Michigan presale box. They were pretty expensive but for those in the NY area enjoy. Search for that event on Ticketmaster and you're golden.

Currently Howard has a better save % this season than Marc-Andre Fleury, Pekka Rinne, Roberto Luongo, Ryan Miller, Carey Price, Cam Ward, Jonathan Quick, and Mike Smith. His GAA is also better than all those players minus Fleury who is in the spot above him. If he is "adequate" I hate to hear what you think of all of those goalies.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Sounds great and all but||
Sounds great and all but that's not typically how it works. Doesn't really show the loyalty to a player when you keep wanting to sign him to 2 and 3 year deals. If that's all we wanted to sign him to again he likely leaves town and who could blame him? I don't know that much more can really be asked of Howard. In the past he's played well but lacked that one or two big time saves per game. This season he is clearly making those and stealing games because of it. The Wings tried to give away Sunday's game vs Nashville with short-handed breakaways and penalty shots. Jimmy has now faced 13(!) penalty shots in his career (possibly 14 including playoffs) which is kind of an absurd number. He pitched the shutout Sunday vs Nashville and we are lucky to have him.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Respectfully disagree. It's||
Respectfully disagree. It's so easy to say we could have signed him for less money but is taking that risk really worth it? Who is out there as good or better that we could replace him with? Did you see McCollum play at all for the Wings? I wouldn't be banking on anything I've seen from him thus far. Mrazek definitely could be the guy down the road but you cannot bank on that either. 2 decent outings in the NHL for Mrazek doesn't mean you give up on Howard. Ericsson and Quincey each make around 3.5M per year. Howard at 5.3M per year is a steal compared to those 2 contracts.

Last year I believe the balance was due in mid-May so I wouldn't worry too much yet. I'm sure they just haven't done anything with that yet.

I now have a new background for my phone. Thanks for the hard work. They look awesome.

There is no Red Wings thread and I cannot start one. However, did anyone else see the uniforms the Canucks are wearing? They are pretty terrible and are maroon and cream colored.

|10 weeks 5 days ago||Don't get me wrong as I'm||
Don't get me wrong as I'm glad the US tied it up. That handball call seemed pretty suspect to me. I'm really surprised that it was called as it seemed to hit the Mexican defender in the midsection and glance off part of his arm after that. Sometimes you just catch the breaks.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Terrible title. We all bash||
Terrible title. We all bash the coaches for being too lenient on players who violate the rules. So instead of appauding Saban for having a backbone you are making him seem devious by kicking off player who broke rules? Saban might be a douche but give the man credit this time.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I agree with your assumptions||
I agree with your assumptions although it doesn't seem they have narrowed down exactly how everything will work. I'm just hoping the league sees the value of Original Six games and especially right now the Wings vs Hawks games. Of course this means that they will probably find a way for them to play even less. Why think of the fans for a change?
|11 weeks 3 days ago||No biggie. Hopefully they||
No biggie. Hopefully they can keep the Original Six match ups occuring a bit more frequently than the other match ups. The restructuring of the conferences helps a bit on that. It would definitely be a shame to not play the Hawks as much. I will hate seeing more Leafs and Habs fans down at the Joe but at least the place will be packed.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||The New York Rangers might||
The New York Rangers might have something about Chicago being the "one odd original six team out."

Your response to #3 is definitely better than anything I thought up. Succinct and to the point. Well played Sir.

But what does Hoke say and who is this Hole person?

Definitely OT and don't have enough points to post. Found this hockey story interesting: http://deadspin.com/5983913/disgruntled-goalie-scores-on-his-own-net-fli... If someone wants to post it, feel free.
|14 weeks 6 hours ago||I definitely wouldn't count||
I definitely wouldn't count that as a brain fart. He was in proper position and the puck seemed to squirt out to an open forward on the doorstep on a power play. If anything is was lucky for the Blues forward to have gotten that bounce. The kid played solid all night long. As others have said, it would be amazing to have a Rinne-like goalie steal some games. Howard is pretty solid but this guy could be something special.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||That would be quite amazing||
That would be quite amazing seeing as Dymonte is already enrolled. Decomitting after enrolling would be quite the feat.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||You don't even need to spend||
You don't even need to spend $100.00 or anywhere close. Every few months someone posts that magazine deal. I paid around $12.00 for an entire 3 years of ESPN Insider (technically I get the magazine too). It was a no brainer for me. I'm sure it will come around again. Once someone sees it, please post it and everyone can jump on it if they want. I agree it's worth it especially at that price.

False. This is the easiest one to peg of all. Clearly a role for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Think about it...

Also didn't see it posted and don't have enough points to do so but Zetterberg has officially been named Captain of the Red Wings. We all knew it was coming but it has officially been announced.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||The goalie didn't||
The goalie didn't necessarilly lose track of the puck. It is actually quite a clever move to pull. Almost 100% of the time when a player drags the puck between their legs in that manner, they are going to put it to one of their skates and kick it back the other way. If you look closely you can see the shooter almost fake a kick with his right skate. I know this may seem to be really a slight fake but that's what the goalie was expecting. That subtle little fake made him hesitate enough for it to slowly slide in.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Don't have enough points to||
Don't have enough points to start a thread but figured I would pass along this information. The NHLPA is putting on a Charity hockey game featuring a bunch of current Red Wings players and a handful of other NHLers in Windsor on December 8th at 630pm. Tickets went on sale today if you use the presale code FACEOFF in the code box. I'm going through hockey withdrawals and figured there are likely a few others in the area as well. Tickets are like 40-50 each with fees. You can find it if you google WFCU Centre and click the presale link. I'd post the link I was emailed but I'm not sure if it is linked to my account or not.

Rivals has a visit listed for OSU for 12/7. Unless he cancels that now that he's committed to Pitt, I wouldn't count them out yet unfortunately.

I definitely laughed at that one. OSU would be #2 though not #1. No way their resume would have them trump the Irish.

I'd have to agree. Plus this type of event has Groupon or Living Social deal written all over it.

I also just found this one in the interest of funny pictures: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/photos?photoId=2527272&gameId=323080135. Apparently ESPN cannot tell the difference between a 5'11" white guy who plays defense and a 6'5" black guy who plays offense. Check out the caption with the picture.
