#2570227 2/11 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Penguins 4

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 11 February 2015 - 11:51 PM

Just got back from the game.  Tough to be a road fan for that one.  We didn't have much life in the beginning and when Mrazek gave up that goal two minutes in, I thought "Crap, he's going to have one of THOSE kind of games isn't he?".  He was having issues with the puck, the defense wasn't really helping much at all.  We didn't show any signs of life till the third.  Despite getting creamed by the Pens, I still had a pretty decent night at the game.  The Pens fans gave me a lot of ribbing, but not mean spirited by any means.  The guy behind my 7 year old was very vocal for the whole game and he bought my son an ice cream when the Pens made 4-0.  I met a ton of Wings fans there and they were all cool.  I guess that's how it is when you're a fan of the road team, anyone wearing the same color as you, is now your friend. lol  The highlight of my night was the pregame warm up.  We got right up to the glass and Luke Glendening slammed himself right into the glass and bumped into my son startling him and the look on his face was priceless.  I think Luke did it on purpose too.  So while it wasn't the outcome I was hoping for, it was still pretty fun.  I rarely get to see the Wings up close (this is only my 6th game in 29 years of being a fan) so that's always a treat.  Next game I go to though, I want to be at the Joe.  Surround myself with some Wings fans for a change. lol

#2540661 Monthly schedule wallpapers?

Ha! I wasn't sure if there was a big demand for these anymore. It is getting a bit harder to produce them in a wide variety of screen resolutions, so if I go ahead with them I may trim them down.

 

Now I could use Analytics data to get an idea on the general needs, but what resolution(s) do you guys primarily use?

How do the Wings look so far? Watching now but missed the first two periods.  

They have played better than the Ducks. More offensive chances for sure. A bad giveaway from Howard led to the Duck's goal. A good play by Kronners and Abby led to a softie from Glenny.

#2538666 Blast from the Past

Posted by Son of a Wing on 06 October 2014 - 11:04 PM

So I was going through a bunch of my Dad's old things and stumbled upon one of his NHL contracts from the Red Wings lying in between the pages of an old program.

 

I've never seen an NHL contract before (let alone from the 70s) and thought it was interesting and that I would share for others interested as well.

 

The salary and bonuses give an interesting perspective in comparison to today.  The average salary (according to the HHOF) in 1970 was $18,000.
