06/06/2018 - 8:59pm Excellent advice. And you…

Excellent advice. And you are correct. Still annoying to do but more clear at least. 

02/27/2018 - 10:39am The Res Wings will never

The Red Wings will never trade Zetterberg. Whether you agree or disagree with that is up to you, but that would be the most about face for the organization to ever do.

This is the key. It was an absolute demonstration of self over the team. It is not a coincidence that the Red Wings front office has lost several crucial pieces over the last few years.

02/27/2018 - 10:23am Statistics show that trading

Statistics show that trading up in the draft is almost always a negative outcome. Obviously depends on the players, ratings, and costs but it usually seems to be an overpayment. At this point, I would rather have more lottery tickets to hit on.

02/20/2018 - 8:54am Zetterberg is absolutely not

Zetterberg is absolutely not done after this season. Kronwall? He may be a different story.

If I could pick one car to tour up and down Woodward it would have to be a 1967 Sting Ray Corvette, silver, with 427 Tri-Power and a 4-speed manual. I grew up in a household where my dad had a 1978 Silver Anniversary edition L82. Just love the shape of those old C2's.

Amen (Michigan's recent struggles probably do not help, but it certainly seems less fun these days).

04/18/2017 - 11:29am I have to think that one sure

I have to think that one sure benefit is that the OL, as a group, now has two coaches really dedicated to teaching (I forget how they broke up the positions between Drevno and Frey).  An extra set of eyes and another coach teaching day in and day out has to be a serious benefit.

That is actually a very interesting thought. Seems like it may be difficult to quantify but perhaps easier to gauge anecdotally.

Sad to see him and this team go out with such a whimper, but that's reality right now

Ugh...this is exactly what we were all thinking. Now, to know the price of the Vanek deal that went down just makes me very sad.

03/01/2017 - 1:16pm Exactly, at the time it

Exactly, at the time it looked like a perfectly reasonable decision (even though I hated seeing Hossa go). Frankenmuth had just went on an absolute tear. We can fault Holland for PLENTY of bad moves over the last 7 years, without resorting to 100% revisionist history.

I would add Zetterberg to that list, too (specifically just this year, so far). But your point stands.

From a Red Wings perspective…I guess it's nice to see Granato doing good things at UW?

Ugh. Make that 5-2. Good lord.

4-2 Wisconsin. Another dman flat-footed in front of the net.

02/17/2017 - 11:05pm Not really his fault on that

Not really his fault on that one, but so often this year opponents are scoring while a Michigan defenseman is absolutely flat-footed in front of his own goal. This time Luce got caught.

The fact that PF can spew that garbage from his mouth while keeping a straight face is the most amazing aspect of this entire video.

02/15/2017 - 10:51pm This is much of the same way

This is much of the same way I keep thinking as well. Harbaugh simply cannot afford to hire unqualified individuals to become members of his staff. Just as you said, the fact that his kid COULD commit in 2019 and MAYBE start after that is simply too speculative to even take seriously. I would think that if other NCAA coaches truly believed Harbaugh was padding his coaching staff with unqualified hires in order to get recruits, they would be more than happy to wait while that disastrous scenario played itself out.

02/10/2017 - 2:41pm Agree completely

100% agree. Best years of undergrad were spent sharing a house with 3 other guys.

I noticed that as well - a bit odd. The easiest answer is that it was probably just a slip of the mind, in the moment, for Harbaugh. We're probably reading way too much into it . . .

I agree 100% with your comment on rivalries re: the parity shift we've seen in the NHL. One on hand it makes more games interesting (see: 3 pt games now), but I feel like we will see less of those "classic" games/series/rivalries.

I agree with NFG on this one... The Wings and Avs rivalry dominated and did define much of the sport during that time.

Not to dispute your larger point because you are correct and I agree, but I think I remember Butt discussing how Drevno (& Jay Harbaugh, I'm sure) had really helped him develop his blocking technique.

On a somewhat related note, has anyone else had issues with the WTKA app over the last few weeks? Not just the live stream game issues noted above (commercial circle of hell), but just regular live streaming for Sam & IRA on the Michigan Insider? For the past few weeks all I've gotten is "Streaming Redirection Error." I've tried deleting and downloading the app, etc.

Anyone else have this problem? And help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks.

This is the most underrated comment in the thread. Schlissel, in my opinion, was the guy who got everything started off on the right foot. Competent and self-aware management can do wonders for organizational success and attitude.

The largest is probably a draw. I drove a 22 ft. Penske from St. Pete, FL to MI. The truck itself wasn't too bad, but the time it took to go through the mountains seemed like an eternity, especially in the middle of the night. Also used to drive a 18 ft. box truck with a 12 ft. trailer, back when I worked for a local brewery in the summers.

Current bike is a HD 1200 Sportster. Don't ride it as often as I would like, but I find it decently comfortable. Would love to upgrade in the next couple years.

Some said basically the same thing above, but I agree with your thoughts here as well. I like the idea of the Legends Numbers and seeing them out on the field once again. Having then only for Homecoming or something similar would, IMO, still allow the player to create their own legacy with a given number. The needless number switching and shuffling seems to be most peoples issue with the whole program.

We just did the same for my wife and her Grand Cherokee. We know the history of the vehicle, take meticulous care of our vehicles and it provided a great value vs. other options. We have been very happy thus far - it's been a great SUV.

05/29/2015 - 5:00pm Isn't that kind of the point

Isn't that kind of the point though? If the private sector offering you've chosen sucks you have the ability to seek out and choose another offering/provider (more than fair caveat about utilities/cable companies/etc.). With the government - typically - you have zero other offerings from which to choose. So, at least in your example, you would seek out an alternate car dealership, grocery store, restaurant or insurance company that was more to your liking.

Admittedly, I don't frequent many other sports blogs - save for the occasional Red Wings reading - but I find it hard to believe many other sports blog posts would have me learning about sky burial's this fine morning. Just one more reason that MGoBlog is such a great place.

Thanks for finding all that information. I couldn't really think of any examples off the top of my head, and that makes sense because all of those guys were a bit before my time of hockey consciousness.
