#2539243 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

Posted by rrasco on 09 October 2014 - 10:46 AM

The first line probably won't last long.  Babcock has pulled Abdelkader from that duty before, which makes it even more confusing that he keeps putting him up there.  I guess because Franzen won't use the body he figures that line would be too small with Nyquist up there.  That's the only reason I can think of.


I'm really hoping Franzen has a different kind of year.  He said he doesn't want to be labeled as lazy, and while we all known his tendencies, when that guy decides to take over a game...he certainly does.  Here's to hoping he has that attitude all year.  I for one am excited what may be unleashed.

#2539106 Kindl on the block

Posted by rrasco on 08 October 2014 - 03:29 PM

Ok, this thread is 22.5 hours old. Why is Kindl still a Wing? ::headdesk::


Is it bad I keep checking back hoping for news?

#2538949 Kindl on the block

Posted by rrasco on 07 October 2014 - 06:17 PM

I can see him being taken by a team that either A) Has two or more waiver eligible defenders or B) A team that experiences some serious injuries on the back end. I just want it to happen... WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GET LEDDY AND BOYCHUK, ISLANDERS!?

I trusted you to do the right thing, Garth Snow


Well there's your problem

#2538923 Kindl on the block

Not that I think his services are needed here, but I like Kindl.  Will be sad to see him go, other than roster spot reasons.

Good luck Toots!



#2538825 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by rrasco on 07 October 2014 - 02:57 PM

The roster moves have pissed people off so much that they're experiencing hallucinations involving talking dogs. Way to go, Kenny.

#2538533 Callahan, Ferraro and Porter placed on Waivers

Posted by rrasco on 06 October 2014 - 11:05 AM

Chuck Pleiness @wingsfrontman 20s21 seconds ago

Mitch Callahan, Landon Ferraro and Kevin Porter have all cleared waivers.


Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 29s30 seconds ago

Callahan, Ferraro and Porter all cleared waivers today. Nobody waived today by Wings.

So we're still 3 players over the roster limit?  What's to come of that?

#2538389 10/4 Final Preseason GDT: Detroit Red Wings vs Boston Bruins

Posted by rrasco on 04 October 2014 - 07:24 PM

I'm thinking out of Nestrasil, Ferraro, or Callahan that Nestrasil has the best chance of not being waived.

#2537917 Holland interview with Mickey comment about a trade

Posted by rrasco on 01 October 2014 - 02:56 PM

I recall him saying something to the tune of "if we can find a willing trade partner" and I'm sure he was referencing the back end as Mickey asked about that.

#2537612 Ericsson/Smith Day-to-Day with groin/hip flexor issues

Probably just precautionary. If not then we can welcome back the Detroit Griffins™ by the time the season starts.



#2537404 Datsyuk 2nd degree separated shoulder injury - out approx 4 weeks

Posted by rrasco on 26 September 2014 - 06:57 PM



You cannot underestimate the camaraderie, and team bonding when a teammate steps up, and goes after an opponent when a questionable hit is delivered.


It was some time ago, but I recall Shanahan saying something along the lines of - 'I'd rather stand up for a teammate, and potentially take an additional 2 min instigator with the idea that my teammates will kill off the ensuing pp rather than to stand around, and do nothing'.


Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it not uncommon to hear people say they believe that the fight night at the joe is the night that team solidified the Cup win?

#2537323 TSN new website a mess ?

Posted by rrasco on 25 September 2014 - 07:09 PM

Responsive is pretty easy, just a lot of work depending on how complex the design is.  It's basically defining different styles for different resolutions.  If width is < 1400px, then you just put all of your styles in that conditional.  Then you target every resolution that your content demands.


And optimizing sites for mobile is a big thing now because a lot of traffic is coming from mobile devices, whereas in the past they were unusable at full resolution on a mobile; especially a mobile connection.
