In Topic: NHL Gamecenter Live **No illegal stream discussion**

Boo :( That's unfortunate. I get cheated out of enough Wings games by not having NHL Network available through my cable provider (and Gamecenter Live doesn't carry their own network..) I was hoping I could finally get around missing those games entirely.


In Topic: 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

30 September 2014 - 01:17 PM

 

I don't really know much about it.  Is it conceptually similar to Detroit's proposed arena?

 

The arena itself isn't so much, but the concept for it being a hub for a bigger surrounding area is right on the money. I was down there for the Stars/Blues game on Saturday and the Power & Light district gets quite a bit of business. It'd be a monumental change for everything down there if they had an actual tenant in the building as opposed to just using it for random exhibition games, wrestling events, concerts, etc. If they had an NBA or NHL team in there - then the poor saps in Jackson county who voted for it might finally get something back out of it all :P

 

I really liked the arena overall though - it was clean and it looked like (from what I could see) that there wasn't really a bad seat to see the game. It's really a shame they convinced voters to build it before they had anyone signed up to stay there. They were trying to advertise people hosting business meetings and parties there during the game :( It's literally reduced a huge, excellent arena into an over-sized board room.

Does anyone know if the FCC ruling re: blackouts is going to have any real effect on games streaming and/or seeing them on tv? Because if I can just pony up the $10 bucks a month for the Fox Sports package through AT&T and get ALL of the Red Wings games that are on FSN-D (that aren't simultaneously broadcast on NHL Network or NBCSN) then I'd much rather do that than buy GCL again.

 

I was trying to get the jist of all that, but it mostly discussed the repercussions for the NFL instead of any of the other sports leagues.

The D-pairings have officially got me worried :( Here's to hoping Smith shines really bright tonight to stave off spending any time in the press box after Kronwall comes back.

 

I think it's going to be a close game. 4-3 in favor of Detroit.

Really hoping we pull out with a win in Glendale tonight.

 

Projected D-lines seem a bit off, I don't think we're going to see Kronwall this soon after the hit by McLeod. I'd imagine we'll see Ericsson/Quincey, DeKeyser/Smith, & Kindl/Lashoff - unless they pair Ericsson/DeKeyser as our top pairing but I'm not sure how I feel about Quincey with either Smith or Lashoff, or a combo of Smith/Lashoff on the ice together.

 

Our D has me worried, but if Howie is in net after a nice rest I'm sure he'll be looking to get back the 2 points we gave up to them last week.
