#2531866 Rule Changes in the AHL (what the NHL has considered)

Posted by Euro_Twins on 12 July 2014 - 05:48 PM

I hate the current OT rules and I hate the proposed changes, just too convoluted. What would happen if it's still tied after 3-3? Both teams play table hockey to declare the winner?


Rock paper scissors. Best 2 of 3

I hope Quincey gets a car so he can drive away.


#2329897 Datsyuk scores a goal off his head

Posted by kipwinger on 24 September 2012 - 02:20 PM

God it's weird to see Radulov wearing the "C" on a team with Datsyuk on it. It's like bizarro world.

Can we trade Babcock for Ovechkin?


#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!)


#2304996 What About = T.J. Oshie of STL., Evander Kane of WIN

Posted by Johnz96 on 03 June 2012 - 03:09 PM

Not so sure Weber will sign another 1 year deal.


Kane would be worth the draft choices, he is the type of player the Wings need


#2301566 Kronwalled at the Worlds!

Posted by Jersey Wing on 15 May 2012 - 08:24 PM

Kaspars Saulietis leaves a wife and no children. May God have mercy on his soul.

We need to start taking up a collection to get NHL Center Ice into these emerging nations so they can learn to avoid these unfortunate moments


#2284102 WCQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 3, at Nashville Predators 2

Posted by 55fan on 13 April 2012 - 06:55 AM

Side note to Shea Weber: It's Friday the 13th. You might want to avoid anything associated with the number 13.

Just sayin'.


#2278977 Potential First Round for Wings

Posted by WingZNut13 on 06 April 2012 - 07:48 PM

If the Wings in and the Preds lose then Crosby is a crybaby *****

If the Wings lose and the Preds lose then Crosby is a crybaby *****

If any scenerio possible plays out then Crosby is a crybaby *****.


I'm on my Phone so I cant like this but could someone +1 this for me.


#2259401 Datsyuk Dominates in the HNIC Players Poll

Posted by Jeff6851 on 20 February 2012 - 04:28 PM

I hate when people compare Datsyuk to God. I mean, sure he's good, but he's not as good as Datsyuk.


#2256382 2/14 GDT : Stars 1 at Red Wings 3

Posted by RedWingsRox on 14 February 2012 - 01:38 AM

+1 for 21 in a row at home.


#2250872 Nice little hit reel

Posted by jollymania on 31 January 2012 - 11:36 AM



Pavel, Stuey, Kronner, all in there. Making a second one right now too if you have any other wings hits to request, ill sprinkle a few in there. And unfortunately right now I don't have helms gigantic hit on Martinek.

Really like Commie out there with Ericsson. He makes the kid better. :thumbup:


#2239870 Datsyuk #1 on TSN's Top-Ten Most Skilled Active Players

Posted by themcityblues on 30 December 2011 - 06:41 PM

What I like about Datsyuk is he's one of THE most elite players in the league who is the most humble, least egotistical, with no drive to flash or impress. Of course, he's flashy and impressive anyway. Isn't this the best combination? He's very humble with mountains of skill. The dude racks up more assists than goals most years. I'm glad he got #1 and very surprised. Guys like Datsyuk, due to their lack of self-attention whoring, can easily be overlooked by guys who do push-ups on the ice after scoring goals. So nice to see this humble player recognized for what he is.
