|1 day 8 hours ago||ESPN News still exists?!||
ESPN News still exists?! Jackpot. I first flipped to Big Ten Network only to be disappointed and see bball, but ESPN comes through.
Another dual hockey night watching Michigan and the Wings.
|1 day 12 hours ago||It's a strange feeling being||
It's a strange feeling being this comfortable in the Big Ten tournament. I remember all throughout my middle school and high school years watching our inevitable Thursday 8 vs. 9 game, then desperately hoping for a win against the 1 seed to keep the chance at making the Big Dance alive, only to lose a relatively close game and head to the NIT. My how times have changed.

A true legend.
Here's my jersey from the playoffs last year in Chicago:
|5 days 11 hours ago||I would go up to Milwaukee||
I would go up to Milwaukee from Chicago, except that I will be in Minnesota for the B1G hockey tourney. Too bad these events will be the same weekend.

I just have NHL Gamecenter, so I only get FSD feeds via internet for Wings.
Cognac and cran over here. Cheers!
|1 week 1 day ago||If only I could watch this||
If only I could watch this game here in Chi. At least the Wings play tonight too, so I can get my hockey fix.
|1 week 2 days ago||NHL Network is using the FSD||
NHL Network is using the FSD feed too. Awesome ceremony so far, too many greats in attendance to name, standing ovation for Vladdy, wow.
|1 week 3 days ago||Vancouver allegedly wanted||
Vancouver allegedly wanted Nyquist + Tatar + prospect for Kesler. HA!!
|1 week 3 days ago||Right right, I agree. I||
Right right, I agree. I guess the best news is that it was an opponent in the West.
If we are stuck with a guy who gives us the ultimatum but we can't make room for him, then we have to try to get any value out of him that we can. For the Preds, he will probably make the big club much sooner (maybe this year?) than if he stayed. It's better this way for the player and the Wings than the alternative of just going home to Sweden.

Still too soon for that
|1 week 3 days ago||This is frustrating. First||
This is frustrating. First of all, Jarnkrok's nickname is IronHook, how badass is that? But really, I'm assuming Ken Holland knows something about his intentions to head back to Sweden if he stayed in the AHL.
I remember watching Legwand on the Whalers as a kid back in the day. He's aging, but at 33 still should hopefully have some productivity in him. Wings need it right away to make this playoff push.
I think this trade is conditional also, if we do make the playoffs we give up a higher round pick. Guess this assumes Legwand is the difference-maker. We'll see...
|1 week 6 days ago||I am heading up there||
I am heading up there Thursday (was hoping we would be the 2 seed and get the bye...) Hopefully Michigan takes care of business in the likely 3vs.6 matchup, then would get Wisconsin during the day Friday.
Saturday, the Wings play at the Wild during the day, with the B1G Championship game at night in the same rink. Should be a glorious few days of hockey!!

I distinctly remember a Dion Harris OT buzzer beater against ND.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Hillel team? My Ice||
Hillel team? My Ice Elephants used to smoke you guys. Though we were 2009 - 2012, but maybe we had some overlap.

Led a team of perennial bottom feeders in the beer league at the Cube in AA. Those were the days...

Gave an upvote because Babcock is the best coach in the world.
Will not discuss further because Olympic wounds are still too fresh. :(

Orange County - one of my favorites, in addition to the classics you listed.
RIP Harold. A legend.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Best tournament in all of||
Best tournament in all of sports. Going to be another long wait until 2018.
Obviously have to hope for our guys on Sweden to beat Canada tomorrow too.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||That's just not true. We||
That's just not true. We were certainly a co-favorite going in, and had to be considered a favorite after the group round.
I refuse to accept that hockey is not our sport.

I don't even know what to say. :(
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||Another penalty shot miss for||
Another penalty shot miss for Kane..completely had him beat. We are dominating right now, just need a bounce or two to go our way.

You only needed to leave for 11 seconds

USA actually gave a really good effort in the first, including some awesome saves by Quick (and Kessler).
Looks like they really want that bronze. Now we just need to put the puck in the damn net.

Today is the day. USA! USA! USA!

Holy shit...that near miss off the post on the empty net would have been the game too...
