  1. NHL 2018 Player Ratings

    Should use the term "Beta" loosely; EA churns out the same dang game year over year. Roster update, remove two features, and add one of the features back that was removed last year...

  4. New arena construction updates

    "The Detroit Downtown Development Authority, the public entity that owns the arena, is expected to collect $726 million in school property tax revenues through 2051. The money will be used to pay off $363 million in public investments in the $862-million arena and the surrounding development district. The DDA and Brownfield Redevelopment Authority were named in the initial suit. A new DDA amendment proposal that council is to vote on June 20 would issue an additional $34.5 million in bonds to support the Pistons' relocation. The estimated cost of the project has increased from $450 million to $862 million. The project is anticipated to be 62% privately funded and 38% publicly funded." That's disgusting. How do you go over budget by 92%?????? Meanwhile, the publicly-funded percentage stayed the same. Bunch of l*b**al BS.

    Mehhh.... all that from a single game? On a player he wasn't even intently scouting? I would want to see some consistent reports before jumping on that one.
  6. Little Caesars Arena worker dies after 75 ft. fall

    Ha, I worked for Schindler Elevator Corporation, dispatching service mechanics, including for NYC. 30 Rock is one of the properties they have (had?) the contract for service (inlcuding all of Rock Plaza). Had no idea this was from that building.

    ^I have seen that photo many times in the past; is it a real photo? What building are the constructing?

    You really felt the need to post your own thread on this subject which is discussed for almost 80 pages in the draft thread? I feel like I'm doing a disservice to all by bumping this thread up the list, but I really wanted to call you out on the annoying, petty attention-seeking post. Sorry, ya'll.

  11. 03/28 GDT : at Carolina Hurricanes 4, Red Wings 1

    No... AA is probably sore from that wicked cross check to the lower back! It's a shame AA is getting a bunch of crap for "running over" a goalie when it's clear his skates were perpendicular to the goalie when he get bulldozed by a guy flying down the ice to break it up. I'm with you Leftwinger, they should be going after their own guy.
  12. Here's an interesting blog

    Fixed!
  13. Looks really good on mobile! Only complaint on a desktop is that the popular contributors list is on every page and not just the home page, meaning all forums are reduced to left-column only. It makes the subforums appear cluttered. On mobile this doesn't matter though because they are at the very bottom. Color scheme is sick too!!!

    I think you will see the team transition to a Tatar-Nielsen-Abdelkader line taking on the top scoring threat lines. They can score but they also stand to play excellent defense. Nielsen is one of the best in the league. Tatar-Nielsen-Abdelkader Nyquist-Zetterberg-Vanek Sheahan-Helm-Larkin Miller-Glendening-Ott Ideally I would like to see two forwards and a defenseman moved for a top D. Even if the team had to roll out Helm as a 2nd line center for a year... Tatar-Nyquist-Sproul are young enough to generate a lot of interest in other teams as a package.
