So. For the first time since 1929, a Wings goalie under the age of 21 won his first start in the nhl. I don't have anyone to discuss this with as everyone around here is a jackets fan and my wife, despite being from kinda close to Toronto is a Bruins fan. Mrazek was pretty damn good last night. Very quick and athletic. Came out of the net well, great positioning for a20 y.o. rookie. Great stick and give placement. Very impressed with the kid. I figured he would be decent, being named the mvp of the '12 wjc, but I thought he looked every bit the experienced nhl goalie. Maybe got a little too daring on handling the puck a couple times, but did better than I remember Osgood doing. I didn't burst an aneurysm every time he left the net like Osgood. Anyone else? Edit: forgot to add, yes, one game sample and all. And the Blues have not done well the last few games. They looked like the Wings in their first game.

All but finalized: Wings v. Leafs at Big House (GLI Final at CoPa?)

The NHL has all but finalized details to hold next year's Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, while continuing negotiations for a second outdoor rink in downtown Detroit where all ancillary events would be held, a source told ESPN.com Friday.

Also, there's talk of holding the GLI final in Comerica Park:

The annual Great Lakes Invitational, a college tournament that features Michigan State, Michigan and other top college invitees, is among the events being considered for the downtown rink. That tournament is usually held at Joe Louis Arena, the Red Wings' permanent home, in late December.
