#2540661 Monthly schedule wallpapers?

Posted by Matt on 14 October 2014 - 03:56 PM

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?




#2540042 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

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.

Hey folks...I'm still around for those wondering.

 

Season preview that FSD made a couple weeks ago will start in 5 minutes.  I should have that along with the Rookie Camp Wingspan recorded and on youtube at some point.  I'm hoping to be more productive with pre and post game recordings this season as I started last season, but ran into some issues.

Well it's Detroit. How many of these guys want to move their families to a city that are in the news right now about the UN having to help people get water?

 

Apparently 40 baseball players, including top pitchers and hitters, who could contend in LA, NY, or many other nicer areas decide to come to Detroit. So the city can't be all bad.




#2521433 Abdelkader ejected for "vicious" hit at World Championships

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 22 May 2014 - 12:11 PM

For starters, that writer is an idiot.  It wasn't late and he didn't leave his feet before contact.  Part of the reason the hit was so vicious is Sobotka was still following through on his shot and couldn't protect himself.  People need to stop watching gifs and slow motion replays and actually watch the video at regular speed.  

 

I don't know about international standards but by NHL rules the only issue is the strides he took before the hit. That could make it charging.  To me it looks like he's hustling back to make a play then veers into the hit, but it gave him a whole lot of momentum and made this hit a nasty one.

 

As for the rest, he does contact the head but he makes solid contact through the body.  That's legal in the NHL because of the solid body contact (I don't know about international rules).  He doesn't leave his feet before contact.  

 

If Sobotka gets up, it's likely nothing happens here.  Even if it were in the NHL though, because Sobotka doesn't get up it's likely getting a suspension.

#2488346 Why did Franzen get 10 min game misconduct?

Posted by wings87 on 01 March 2014 - 04:09 PM

Neal is a tool. But I don't like Franzen slashing players( he did it to one of the Ottawa players late in the game, don't remember who) in the back of the leg and running away either. Franzen shouldn't be fighting especially after all his concussions, but he should cool it with the cheap shots too.


#2488243 Why did Franzen get 10 min game misconduct?

Posted by uk_redwing on 01 March 2014 - 08:41 AM

In Neil's defence, Franzen did clearly poke (or spear) Neil in the groin just before the scrum.

 

Neil is a heavyweight enforcer. Who in their right mind does that to guy like Neil in a blowout game and then not expect anything to happen afterwards? Insanity, especially given his concussion history I have no idea what the in the hell Franzen thought he was doing.
