#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

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?

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.

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

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.

#2537278 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

Posted by rrasco on 25 September 2014 - 01:03 PM

Philadelphia does I believe, but that's the only one I can think of off the top of my head.


They do, I was about to say Philly...When I went there you drive from the airport and bam, all the arenas are right there.  Whether they are downtown or not, I don't know the city well enough to say.



LIVE STREAM: Watch arena district groundbreaking ceremony today at 1:30


Ha, they have a choir singing Eminem's "Lose Yourself"

#2537277 Datsyuk 2nd degree separated shoulder injury - out approx 4 weeks

Posted by rrasco on 25 September 2014 - 12:50 PM

I don't think it was a dirty hit, but it would make me feel better if we had someone stand up for our guys.  Like how Hoggan did when Farnham ran Ouellet.  It's camaraderie when you know people have your back.  It might not prevent injuries or people running our guys, but it makes me feel better.  I don't even like watching the fights most of the time, I'm nervous as hell for the guys.  Even the other guy, most of the time.


It does infuriate the hell out of me when stuff like this happens and our guys are just standing around.

Could be worse, remember what happens with out the rounded glass.



I refer to that part of the glass as the Pacioretty Corner.
