Assuming it's gonna be him and Doc for the Wings home opener too. If it was some random mid-season game i'd just skip it but I want to watch that one. Fuckers.

Hey glad I could have the opportunity, I'll try my best to present the trophy to the winner in person

Which, I think we should have a trophy, or something, that gets sent around to the league winner each year

Just wait till next Thursday for the home opener, it's on NBCSN. That'll give you a better idea of the crowd. I watched the first period of the game Saturday and it was like half full. I've said it 100x already I loved The Joe for the atmosphere but this place is so much nicer on so many levels.

Wow that is a beautiful arena! Looks like the seats are comfy, plenty of amenities and it does not appear there are many (if any) restricted view seats in the whole place. This should be a model for new arena's going FWD IMO.

This game is pretty exciting for pre-season - Mrazek looks solid but is giving up some juicy rebounds, I always love the way Abdelkader plays and wow is this Booth guy impressive they way he puts pucks on net - not sure why he has been mired in the KHL forever with that style of play - that said I am basing this solely on what I have seen of him in the past Hawks/Wings game and tonight's game.

Someone remind me why on earth the Hawks are wasting a million bucks a year on jurco? He is awful. Rutta, Forsling, Pokka, Kampf, and Forsberg have been very impressive so far. I like Franson's style but he shoots low probability shots (aka no screens or anything) fare too often for my tastes. I think Hayden gets the last O spot over Debrincat - who is damn good but not quite NHL ready (assuming Hinestroza starts on the opening day roster) - who I would rather have on my team than jurco. Oesterle is on the bubble for me, decent but nothing great because he is solid one minute and makes a dumb ass play the next - depending on Rozsival's availability he might be a decent 7th defenseman.

Fun game to watch so far and that arena is amazing!

Ben Street looks solid for Detroit too. What is going on with Athanasiou - a contract dispute where he is considering a year in the KHL now? That opens up a spot for Street or Booth IMO - if it happens.

Gotta think Eddie O is a 'happy human' tonight with the Hawks winning and his son scoring a goal in the first AHL pre-season game for Rockford. Get well soon Eddie - NO ONE wants to hear Milbury!!!!!!!!

Really can't wait for the season to start. I think the Flyers are going to have their best season since 2012.

Wayne Simmonds and Joel Ward are thinking about kneeling for the Anthrm at the opener.

Honestly, I cannot say I dislike him he is just sort of captain obvious during post game shows. Not sure how he would be as a play by play/color guy.

Hes not just captain obvious but he grinds axes against certain teams and players and it couldnt be more obvious.

This as well, plus he seems to think he is some sort of comedian with his unfunny cracks. Not saying he is a bad guy, just not I would want to hear a whole game with him making the calls!

He climbed into the stands and beat a fan with his own fuckin shoe.

Milbury is a clown and an embarrassment to the NHL.

Just came here to post this. He was the voice of the Wings for so long. The link below is how I do and always will remember him. On Stevie’s 2 OT goal everyone points to Thorne’s call but this is how I saw it and always will. RIP Strades.

There is a great article on Vladimir Tarasenko on ESPN's NHL page though I tend to disagree that anyone who follows hockey would consider him under-rated.

Jagr looking like he's going to Calgary and David Booth gets a one year two-way contract with the Wings. Good for him, he worked hard and to play for his hometown team has gotta be pretty cool.

RIP to Dave Strader. Always liked him.

As to Milbury, I think it fair to say I hated and disliked him way before most of you.

An NHL with Jagr is better than an NHL without Jagr.

Sorry for the duplicate guys!

Saw a tweet today pointing out that Jagr and Keith Tkachuk were drafted in the same year. Now, Jagr plays on the same team as Keithís son.
