You're bragging about setting cars on fire but WE have the reputation for being hooligan fans. GRRRRR. NOT FAIR. Especially when turning over cars and setting them on fire in Detroit doesn't necessarily mean a team won a championship. It could just be Tuesday.
Merc, we could do a house swap if one of our teams wins. There's nowhere I'd rather be than Broad Street for a parade
Look , I live in NC. I have to put my hooligan leanings somewhere. We're too polite here.

Federov and Yzerman were dynamite. Federov was the first reason I liked the Wings. He was just so calm and calculated, small passive-aggressive smile on his face all the time. I miss the Shanahan, Hull, Federov, Yzerman, Legace days.
I miss Captain Steve. I think Nick Lidstrom is a wonderful man, but Steve really had the star power.

I love watching hockey. Too bad in my city it's not cold enough to have an ice stadium working for a good part of the season. My gf lives 30 miles away near the mountains, and there during the winter it's cool enough to let the ice stadium be, so sometimes I go watching hockey matches there, it's fantastic. I'd like to play, but I'd have to learn ice skating well before.
Well, it's clear that you don't know a lot about the Capitals because Kolzig retired. So, I'll just say that the Capitals have several good young players besides Ovechkin. And after working out some kinks with Sergei Federov last year, he also made a great "old timer" addition to the team.
Maybe you should just stick to Red Wings hockey news. . . as that's what everyone seems to do.

Agreed. Mike Green scared the shit out of me in the playoffs last year. I think he's going to be a perennial All-Star. Backstrom, Laich and Semin are good young players too. They have a nice young team, but I'm afraid I don't think they'll be going anywhere until they get a competent goaltender. I wouldn't trust Jose Theodore as far as I can throw him.
Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.
