    Firefox bug

    When I come here, it re-directs me to a "Firefox update". My antivirus alerts me that this is a bad thing and neutralizes it. I hit the back key and go on browsing the site without further complications. Is this an LGW thing? Or does this happen all over the internet but I only see it here because this is the only site where I turn off my adblock? Is it happening to anyone else?

    The 18/19 Playoffs Bandwagon thread

    I root for three teams: the Red Wings, the Wild, and whoever is playing the Penguins. Unfortunately, only one of those teams has made the playoffs. What I'd really like to see is a Toronto/San Jose final. For all the years that people have been rooting for Marleau and Thronton to get a Cup, it would be sure that one would get it- and it would be nuts to watch. That said, I'm on the Sharks bandwagon. Go Nyquist.

    Lions trade Golden Tate to Philly. WTF.

    Do people have opinions here? I want opinions

    I'd do Vladdy with Lids. Like it was meant to be.

    If Zadina gets too arrogant for his own good, can we call him Za Diva?

    Flyers new mascot will haunt your nightmares

    They just said on TSN that Gritty looks like Youppi after watching too much Breaking Bad.

    Flyers new mascot will haunt your nightmares

    My first exposure to Gritty was a picture on my Facebook feed captioned "Meth on Ice".

    I was pleased with the first snap of the season- by the other team. It may be a long season....

    Not An Underground Meme-Ban Resistance Thread. Mods Do Not Click.

    Oh, lack-a-day. I've been gone for months and now finally reinstated, there are shenanigans afoot and I, being aged, do not know how to meme. I shall instead leave a picture for you as a show of support.

    I'll take AA. Cap space can be cleared if necessary, even if it means waiving someone. Pizza Hut or Papa John's?

    The person below me game...

    I am self-taught, so it may not be "swimming" but I can get from point A to point B in water. The person below me is pleased that AA is signed.

    I never even got to the Joe. The person below me is satisfied with the new rule regarding challenging an offsides.

    Depends on the situation, but if you're just talking about eating them plain as a snack, I'll go with mozzarella "string cheese". Spring or fall?

    Dear Lions, Thank you for beating the Vikings. My Vikings-fan friend and I had a pride bet. Had the Lions lost, I would have had to say, "May the Force be with you" to every customer the next shift I work. Sincerely, Lions fan in Vikings territory

    Met a Couple Red Wings Family Members

    I'll be your wingman, er, woman. I'll distract Kocur. I only ask that you buy drinks.

    Vegas Off Ice Trouble Watch

    I'm sure our fine, upstanding boys will have no desire to do anything that would sully the reputation of our great game or of the league, or cause any embarrassment to their parents or spouses or bring shame upon their family names. Except maybe a few.... dozen. If this was a few years back, I'd go with Kane, but he seems to have settled down. Probably be some young kid.

    So the Lions led the opponent through the whole game and didn't choke at the end. Is this possible? Do other teams do this? Perhaps it is a strategy we should employ along with our usual waiting until the last minute to mount an impossible comeback.

    Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    I just went and checked to see who is left unsigned for teams and there are a lot of players that are marginal and/or young that are going overseas. I wonder if some are not taking a year to play in a league where they will let them off for the Olympics. You know the teams will be watered down without NHL players. A guy like AA might have the chance. Obviously if a player has an NHL contract or can get a good one, he'll stay, but if the choice is between mediocre money here and good money there plus a chance to play in the Olympics, how many players might not take a year away from the NHL for that experience? Not saying this is AA specifically, just throwing it out there.

    This or That

    In general, I like the links, but there are some good patties and bad links out there. Sausage is, kind of by definition, different every time. Mittens or gloves?

    This or That

    Ooh, that's a hard one.. In general, I prefer cold to hot because you can always add more clothes, but you can't always take them off. That said, as a North Dakotan, I prefer summer because there's no shoveling, no warming up the car, no worrying about getting snowed in at work or home, and there's hockey. Chicken or eggs?
