#2341403 Old Red Wings Wallpaper, from 01-02

Posted by rrasco on 18 January 2013 - 08:19 PM

Awhile back I was going through some old hard drives and stumbled across these wallpapers I downloaded over 10 years ago.  The timestamps on the files were from 11/21/2001.  Resolution pretty low, but I'm pretty sure I was running a 15" CRT back then at 800x600.


I thought some folk around here would appreciate them.

Soooo happy to see these back Mike!  Killer new design too; I was waiting to see what you had in store for us.  I'm curious, do you have a jersey pre-made for players of all teams or did you create a template?

It's been a long road for Patty.  I'm so happy for him.  He must be so relieved.

Mine still says $0.00 from last year too.  I was just on the phone with DTV and the guy told me it was $60; four payments of $14.99.  He looked it up because he didn't believe me it would be that cheap for the whole year, but then I told him about the lockout.  He confirmed that information as has been reported.

While you guys boycott the NHL.  I'll be watching hockey drinking a cold one.  Enjoy!

Nice.  Second one was just like that SO goal he pulled on Niemi a few years back.


Just post the youtube URL to embed the video, no code necessary.


#2339312 NHL, NHLPA reach tentative agreement on new CBA

Honestly, I don't have much of a problem with Pierre. When he isn't slobbering over Sid, he can actually be a pretty decent commentator. 


Me neither.  He's pretty dang knowledgeable, no matter how creepy he is.  He's not as bad as say...Edzo.  Anyone remember that game against Chicago?  I'm pretty sure it was that OT winner Pasha banked off of their guy in front of the net...when Edzo was all like "SIGH, Wing's win".

#2337479 NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Posted by rrasco on 03 January 2013 - 02:48 PM

Hearing rumours NHL teams are reaching out to their coaches and telling them to be ready. Some are booking flites to their cities.


I would be excited if I had not heard that 2-3x already during these 'negotiations'.

#2337441 Guess that Goalie game

Why are we not allowed to use most image extensions in this community? Making this game not so much fun.


I found that a few image extensions will say they are not allowed if you 'preview' your post, but it will still let you post them.  It did that the other day when I tried to post a GIF but didn't stop me from actually posting it.

talk about some hurt canadians http://www.sbnation....ior-hockey-2013


LOL.  I guess we hit a nerve.  My favorite part is where they are crying that all the Americans get developed in the CHL but all five goals were scored by NCAA players.

1. Call it and not the 'false offense'.

2. Can they post GIFs in the locker rooms instead?



#2336475 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

Posted by rrasco on 20 December 2012 - 04:51 PM

Sad that I hear about game cancellations from my local news before I see it elsewhere. I thought it was particularly interesting they used a picture from JLA. It's like they're trying to break my heart. </3

NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL has wiped out all games through Jan. 14, and if it needs to make any more cancellations, the entire season could be the next thing to go.


Did that picture of Kane just come out Kip?

An interesting read...

This is what stands out to me. The league will not be stable unless they address the problem at hand...and that's not player salaries.

It’s not a coincidence that the most successful North American sports league also has the most rational approach to revenue sharing. Some 60% of the NFL’s $11 billion revenue pie is shared, which is why tiny Green Bay, Wisconsin can compete with big bad New York or Chicago. The other two Big Three leagues aren’t quite as egalitarian but have improved their models in recent years: MLB teams share nearly a third of localTV revenue, while NBA teams reportedly approach a 50% total revenue share (give or take a few complex calculations).
The NHL, meanwhile, has been sharing 4.5% of its $3.3 billion revenue (with not much more on the table in current talks.)
