#2674271 Possible Leak of Florida Panthers New Logo

Posted by sleepwalker on 28 April 2016 - 05:22 PM

I, for one, applaud the change.  The old logo has no place in our modern PC world it is angry and aggressive and evokes feelings of violence and rape.  It at once scares, disgusts and offends me.


I welcome the passive pussycat as the new logo...

Was nice to see Howard back on his game tonight.


And to look on the bright side, even though we lost the last two games, points-wise, we only lost one.

Wow, what a nail biter.  Glad to see the Wins pull out the W.


And though none of us will ever know, if it happens that Petr was hungover from his birthday celebration, and that is why he looked like s*** today, hopefully he learns a valuable lesson from this and never does that s*** again.

#2652134 New NHL website design....

Posted by sleepwalker on 11 February 2016 - 06:51 PM

I never really go to the NHL website except to check standings occasionally.  I just went to the standings and...wtf?  The old site looked nice and sleak, well laid out.  The new standings page looks like someone just uploaded an excel spreadsheet circa 1999.


Its 2016 and the NHL is a multi billion dollar industry.  There is no excuse for such a s*** website.

With so many reviews being deemed inconclusive from the overhead and front camera views, I am surprised there isn't more of an argument being made to put cameras in the backs of the nets again.  It would solve a lot of these cases where you can't tell from overhead or the front.

#2651238 2/6 GDT : New York Islanders at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Seeing this game makes me think... I'm surprised we don't see more people complaining and bitching about games like this where a team takes the lead and dares to keep playing.  Especially in the age of ultra "politically correct" extremism, where people think that nobody should be made to feel bad or be offended for any reason. 



Makes me think back to the 07-09 Wings when we were dominating opponents, and how the media would crucify the Wings if they went up by 4 and didn't either just give up and play defense the rest of the game or let the other team get  a "catch up" goal or two so they would feel better.  If the Wings even dared to keep playing (god forbid scoring another goal) back then after going up 4, they be accused of showboating and torn completely apart the next day in the press.

Clearly (to me anyway) he was dazed and thought it was an opposing player, but that won't stop the lynch mob from demanding his head on a platter.

Wow...  talk about absolutely horrible one sided reffing.  Ignoring all the other trips and cross checks, there is no way that any ref on the leve should miss playing the puck on the faceoff with a broke stub of a stick, OR the overhead BC two hander that shattered Datsyuks stick, OR Howie getting rolled over into the back of his own net.



I'm sure its just a "coincidence" that so many of these games where the Wings get totally screwed over by absolutely unexcusably horrible and questionable reffing also happen to be the ones where O'halloran is reffing.

WTF.  Are the camera guys and the sound guys all drunk or high today?  First the aspect ratio, then the weird zoom ins, now the break songs running in the background...

It would have been so awesome if they didn't catch that off sides and the Wings scored and there was nothing STL could do about it since they already used their challenge.

#2641774 12/08 GDT : Red Wings at Washington Capitals, 7:30 ET

This game is, sadly, just another in  the long line of examples of the NHL refs trying to intentionally throw a game to one team.  With both teams committing pretty much equal levels of infractions, yet no call on Washington and 4 on Detroit.


And as I type this, the refs accomplish their goal.  This is the reason the NHL is losing actual real fans that actually know about hockey.  (despite the fact they may be gaining fair weather and/or temporary new "fans")  


The reffing is a joke at best, and corrupt and intentionally throwing games at worst.


Worst officiating in any big pro sport, by FAR.

#2641338 musicians that are red wing fans?

It'd be cool if Tupac was a fan, but he wasn't.  That just happened to be the jersey that best matched his sneakers and bandana on that particular day.


Much like throwback basketball jerseys were one of the fashions of choice for rappers in the early 2000's, hockey jerseys were one of the fashions of rappers in the early-mid 90's.

#2639624 Bigger nets ?

Posted by sleepwalker on 27 November 2015 - 04:16 AM

As was already pointed out, the rink size will not be changed.  It would cost tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars to convert all the NHL arena surfaces, not to mention the millions in revenue that would be lost due both the time it would take and the seats that would be lost.  Not feasible.

#2639002 Ian White Preparing for War?

Posted by sleepwalker on 23 November 2015 - 12:43 PM

I agree with F Michael.


While the charges sound scary, it could simply be the case of him bringing his gun with him to hunt.


Simply having the gun to begin with would be "possession in an unauthorized place" getting it there is "unauthorized importing" and not having enough trigger and case locks, or not having certain accessories stored separately would be "careless storage".


Could be as simple as he just brought a gun (or two) up to hunt with not fully knowing all the laws and regs, and got the book thrown at him to make an example.

Red Wings biggest arch enemies?


The NHL refs. 





Honorable mention to the "department of player safety", who wouldn't suspend anyone who took a dirty head shot at a Wing, unless the shot was with a bullet.  (and even then, they'd probably have some excuse about how the Wings player put himself into the path of the bullet, and thus, no discipline)
