#2544153 10/23 GDT : Penguins 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

That was an awesome game!

I was there live and with about 5min left people started leaving in droves. Its funny, I whispered to my cousin "I dont know why people leave with time left in a 3-1 game, anything can happen" and then we see one of the best finishes in years. Such a good game!

Here's one of the walls at Ivy and Coney in Washington, D.C.  How cool is that?  I think I found a home away from home lol.

Whatever you make, I will accommodate

Same here.  I think Matts idea for making the highest res in both 16:9 and 16:10 and then people can scale down for lower res versions is the best.  Saves Matt some work.

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?

Whatever you make, I will accommodate

If there are any Wings fans in the Washington, D.C. area you're more than welcome to join me and some buddies at the Ivy and Coney bar in Shaw for the game.  It's a Detroit and Chicago themed bar that serves coneys and local beer.  Half of the place is garbage.  I'll let you decide which. 

#2541623 Weiss

Posted by joesuffP on 16 October 2014 - 09:05 PM

You never know. Weiss has to be fired up and going to throw it all out there if he gets put in the lineup. The guy is playing for his career. I'd love to see him suit up against Toronto. He can atleast provide what Abby has in the top six. Even when Weiss was hurt last year he was good at board battles and face offs and he appeared to be skating better
If Cleary dresses before Weiss I'm going to puke

#2541448 10/15 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Jimmy had an awesome game.


Smith was out best defenseman (again)


Glendenning was noticeably good


Zetterberg was noticeable off


The Griffin line is going to keep on getting better. 


I like where we are right now... now let's get Pavs on the ice!

So glad Babs is moving away from his Abby on the first line mantra.  I don't know why it was such a challenge to see Nyquist belongs there.  


Also curious about Smith and KFQ swapping, that seems odd.

Still no Weiss.... I am not gonna lie, I wish he would get a shot.

It makes me wonder what's really going on there. He (Weiss) was under the impression he was working very hard, do him and Babs have different ideas in terms what's hard work?


#2540742 Fan turnout at last night's Panthers' game

Posted by matthewdanna on 15 October 2014 - 01:16 AM

Watched some on TV. Was seriously a joke, worse turnout I've ever seen at a major sporting event, including preseason games. It was just a sea of empty seats. Team obviously needs to be moved and rebranded. One hockey team for Florida is enough. 




Here's what you do (Bettman)... move Florida to whichever Eastern Canadian city you want to grace with a team (Hamilton, Quebec City, etc.), redraw the divisions, and expand two teams.


My solution:

Metropolitan (almost all of these teams are near the Atlantic)--> Atlantic: Carolina, New Jersey, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Washington

Atlantic (only one team is actually on the Atlantic)--> Northeast: Boston, Buffalo, Detroit, ColumbusHamilton/Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto,   

Midwest: Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Minnesota, Nashville, Saskatoon/Kansas City, St. Louis, Winnepeg

Pacific: Anaheim, Calgary, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Pheonix, San Jose, Seattle, Vancouver

#2540787 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by Praying Mantha on 15 October 2014 - 10:43 AM

Agreed (partially).  As such, if we're going to count on unknown quantities to step up, I'd rather we rely on the potential of our own prospects than hack defensemen making 4-5 million bucks a year.  Myers scored 25 points last year and was bad defensively (all for around 5 million dollars a year).  I'm POSITIVE that Ryan Sproul could score 25 pts and be bad defensively for a much more palpable price tag. 

Good points. That's why i think a Quincey and Kindl offer would be very low risk for both teams. At the worst, Buffalo gets 2 NHL defensemen at reasonable rates who are in their prime. At the worst, the Wings get a 24 year old RH defenseman with a lot of potential. It would be hard to argue that Babcock and Holland would slot Myers behind Sproul and Jensen. Would you be unhappy if the D pairings were Kronwall-Ericsson, Dekeyser-Smith, Ouellet-Myers? I think those 6 would be tough to play against. I like our D as is (even Quincey and Kindl), but I do think we need to start making moves now to open up some spots for our prospects. Having 11 guys who can play NHL D is great, but not if we don't have 1 guy who is a good RW.

Any resolution works for me, thanks for doing them (and everything else you do for LGW) Matt!
