#2319490 Doan staying in PHX 4 yrs $21.2 mill

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 16 July 2012 - 08:20 PM

I never really thought Doan was leaving Phoenix. Did anyone really?

No, but I thought Phoenix might be leaving Phoenix.


#2314493 Ryan Suter agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Posted by barabbas16 on 04 July 2012 - 11:36 AM

Suter wanted to come to Detroit... Parise didn't... Suter signs wherever Parise wans to go. These guys don't give a s*** about winning they just want to get paid and have fun. I'm sorry but this is just the way that American born players are. The stanley cup isn't their end all be all. It's weird cause most other nations are passionate about the cup but it seems as time goes on players are choosing $$ and lifestyle over being a champion


Anyone want to guess where this guy is from?

Apology not accepted. Ass.

I think I am boycotting the Wings. Yep, I don't want this team.


then go.


#2312255 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Tootoo has chilled out quite a bit as far as the cheap s*** goes, he will drop the gloves, and as long as he busts his ass every shift I like this. He's a f***in' wrecking ball!

#2312185 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by dats13owns on 01 July 2012 - 05:59 PM

Tootoo was a healthy scratch on a team that was BETTER than the one we had WITH Lidstrom. I have never been more pissed at the Wings. I have never gotten THIS MAD. I want him gone NOW. THIS IS THE SECOND WORST DAY IN WINGS HISTORY.


This is a bit much...


#2310188 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by Echolalia on 26 June 2012 - 06:55 PM

Could you imagine the hunger and intensity a team consisting of Doan, Parise, and Helm would possess? Hell I would love to see those three on a line together just to witness the chaos.

#2308268 Forums Upgraded

Posted by Matt on 20 June 2012 - 06:39 PM

As you've undoubtedly noticed, things look a bit different around here! The LGW Forums have underwent the biggest upgrade since 2010 and there are a lot of significant changes -- far more than I think I could meaningfully gather into this post. Many you'll notice as you continue to surf the forums as many of the enhancements are functional. Bullets:

There are currently two "main" template skins, labeled "White" (the default one) and "Red"
You're free to switch among them as you see fit by clicking on the "Change Theme" link at the bottom of the page.

Removal of profile pictures
IP.Board opted to merge the two into one avatar, and as of the last update I believe that remote-linking of images for avatars is no longer permitted (security risk).

Speed
The forums should show some significant speed improvements. Some of this is due to inline updating: Posts can be added to threads seamlessly. I'll continue to try to make as many speed improvements to the forums as I can.

More integration with social media
You'll see the ability to add topics to your Facebook/Twitter accounts.

Rep System replaced with "Like" button
No more +/- functionality as it has been replaced with a "Like this Post" button.

Topic Preview
When viewing the forum index (like 'General Discussion' here), you can mouseover a topic and see a dark gray down arrow icon appear to the right -- click it to expand the topic to view the first few posts before going to the topic page itself.

TapaTalk functionality is BACK
Some members have been clamoring for it to return as a mobile viewing option, so here it is. TapaTalk is now compatible with the forum (in addition to the standard Mobile theme that's also available if you're still looking for an easy mobile browsing solution.)

Custom Topic Tags
Options vary by forums and by member group, but there are now customized topic tags (or 'badges'). In the past it was limited to "PINNED" and "POLL", but I've expanded that to include "GDT" (for Game Day Threads), "SIGNED" for *official* signings, and "TRADE" for topics discussing an official trade. (Do not abuse this ability! It's a great visual aid for visitors of the forums and those that abuse it will be promptly suspended/banned.)

Better Spam Protection
All new registrations are IP checked against a known spam list remotely hosted and updated. This should help eliminate a large number of spammers that manually attempt to register and stops them before even seeing the registration form.

New Profile "Statistics" Tab
Just what it says: No see just how addicted you are to LGW by looking at your recorded posting habits by time of day and by forum activity.

Gallery Link added to Profile
A new "Gallery" tab has been added to your User Profile, for quick access to see what user's have uploaded and shared with the community.

Topic "Tags"
These replace the the topic subtitle (the smaller, gray text that was present on the last version). You can enter up to 10 per topic, separated by commas. Use vital keywords describing the topic, like a player name, team, etc., and it'll help catalog forum topics more efficiently to help search engine spiders and the search feature here work more efficiently.


There are plenty more, and I'll add to this thread as I can -- right now I'll be tending to little bug fixes here and there that tend to pop up following a major upgrade like this. (Also, if any members see something I didn't mention, please feel free to add it here!)

#2294210 WCQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Predators 2

Posted by irishock on 20 April 2012 - 08:28 PM

Told you guys we'd tie it up.

Take that haters. Especially that BuckeyeWings fan guy.


A bit hypocritical considering you're the one who is talking about a first round exit this year.

Al: WHAT'S ALL THIS LYING AROUND s***?!

LGW: Season's over man, Bettman won.

Al: Over? Did you say "over"?! Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL NO!

LGW: Germans?
Pasha: Shhh, he on roll

Al: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!

LGW: <_<

Al: What the hell happened to the Detroit fans? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Al, we might get hurt again." Well just kiss my ASS from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Weber, He's a dead man! Rinne, dead! Trotz -

Hank: DEAD! Al's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

Al: We're just the guys to do it!

LGW: LET'S DO IT!

:siren: LET'S GO RED WINGS!!! :siren:
