    So, apparently folks will now get free curly fries if the wings as a team score three goals in a game? On the one hand, I like Arby's fries. On the other...the Wings are getting mercy ruled by a fast food franchise.

    Not a surprise. Hard to have a hat trick on a team that can't even score 3 goals most night as a group.

    The purpose of the promotion is to get people in the door for a free fry to spend money elsewhere, as well as getting their name said during broadcasts. Not much of a promotion if it doesn't happen.

    "What'll you have?"
    "An order of Red Wings please."
    "Sorry we're out, will Dead Wings do?"
    "No, I don't want those. I hated those. Makes me feel sick just thinking about them."
    "What if I throw in an order of pity fries."
    "Pity fries almost make me feel worse, but I suppose there's no choice; yeah fine."
    "Well don't worry, we're not planning on giving them out too frequently. Here's your order sir."

    I only see this as a good thing.

    Maybe they will forget when the Wings are actually good again and we will get free curly fries after every game.

    No not really, that team had far better players than we have now. Sadly that team had 4 players with 50 or more points.

    Yeah considering, That only Larkin, Cholowski and AA are playing decently. Nyquist hasn't been bad either. Playing for a new contract.

    And Wayne Greztky scored 215 points. 13 100 point players.

    I think both teams suck, don't really need to delve into which was ****tier.

    I guess there's no reason. I thought there would be more but there was only 18 more 50 point scorers in 85-86, I just knew that was Wayne's 85-86 season was the 215 one and assumed.
    But, if you want to point at 50 point scorers, the 85-86 wings had 266 goals for and 415 goals against - for comparison - the 17-18 wings had 217 goals for and 255 goals against. So yea sick goal differential, there.

    My whole point going to my first post was the 85/86 team had far better players on it. I would much rather have Yzermen , Klima, Oates, Kocur, Probert, Zombo, going forward than Larkin, Mantha, AA, and Cholo, see the difference??

    It's bad when you think about it.

    From a consumers standpoint though, this is postive news.

    so, if the team somehow scores six goals, like they bag a couple of empty netters or something, can we get two free curly fries?

    Did they specify that it has to be scored into the opponents' goal? When is Erickson returning?
