When football is not on, my gifs move to hockey:

This is based on my Datsyuk gif from last year:

 

 

Hope y'all are having a good 2014 compared to the sports year of 2013, the Wings are still looking shaky with flashes of brilliance.

I was at the game in Dallas; that was by far the most amazing goal I'd ever seen live. And there were tons of Wings fans there (maybe 20% of the crowd)

Question from somebody in Seattle who doesn't get a whole lot of Wings coverage. Do Tatar and Nyquist have the potential to be the next Hank/Pavel? Or is that hoping for too much? Nyquist impressed me last year in the playoffs and now this by Tatar,

Tatar started the year in Detroit only because he had no minor league options left and they didn't want to lose him; Nyquist should have been on the team in October.
He reminds me a lot of a young Datsyuk. He's got a ton of potential and does the stick-lift-takeaway just like Datsyuk does. The potemtial is there, even if he likely won't be quite as good. Tatar has a ton of talent too but doesn't have the defensive game so won't be as complete a player as Z.
The next star could be Jurco or another minor leaguer, nut they drafted Anthony Mantha in the first round this year. He tore up the World Juniors and he'll be up sooner rather than later. This guy will be really good too.

Probably about captures the way the Stars D-Men felt this happened.  Like the Coach always ssays "good things happen when you go to the net."  Z got the first one that way last night.
