#2256516 2/14 GDT : Stars 1 at Red Wings 3

Posted by Matt on 14 February 2012 - 01:29 PM

Guys, just so you know: Tonight's game WILL be on 97.1FM. The Pistons swapped with the Wings for the night because of the record. (Heard this on the drive home from the office last night while listening to 97.1.)

Last month's inclusion of backgrounds sized for your iPhone4 and iPad proved to be wildly successful, so I've also added a (relatively) standardized Android device background as well: 480x800.

Enjoy!

#2232460 Fistric destroys Niederreiter

Clean hit. Nothing there that is any different than the collection of ones we see from Kronwall. He doesn't leave his feet (jump) to lay the hit, but powers up into it when contact is made.

Thanks for the great feedback last month everyone! I do like the inclusion of the Grand Rapids Griffins schedule, but I'm trying to find an effective way of applying it to the current rendition without it getting too busy -- especially at smaller resolutions. Speaking of (slightly) smaller resolutions: You can now use the LGW Calendar Schedule Wallpaper on your iPhone4/S and your iPad/2! The iPhone4 version is specifically formatted for your lock screen.

I'd love your feedback on these! (Specifically the iPad version -- I don't personally own one, so I wasn't able to test the layout against any pre-existing lock screen issues like I could with the iPhone4. Also, I'm definitely open to adding versions for Android devices -- but I'd base it on the highest, most-popular screen resolution and I'd need a template guide to avoid the same on-screen o/s features.)

Enjoy!

I'm changing it up a bit this season and NOT going with a monthly "featured" player (at least for this month, depending on feedback). Oftentimes the addition of a player messes with the layout when adjusting for other aspect ratios, or I have a rough time finding a nice, high-resolution picture to use. I hope you like this year's edition!

#2199234 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by Matt on 19 July 2011 - 06:45 AM

I'm honestly surprised that he's retiring via a conference call -- shocked, really -- even if he is taking up a position within the organization. Perhaps this was Osgood's personal choice as I'm sure a press conference in the Olympia Room and a retirement forthcoming at least a year before the player wants to reach that point is going to be extremely emotional.

Thanks for the memories, Ozzie. It was a helluva ride.


#2199069 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by Matt on 18 July 2011 - 03:48 PM

He has to be coming back. A player with the history he has with this club, three Stanley Cups, does NOT retire via a conference call with the media. They'd do an actual press conference in the Olympia Room in the same manner as Brian Rafalski, who has a much less storied history with the franchise.

You re-sign for 1-year at a bargain-basement salary with incentives via a media conference call.


#2192233 Changes in the offseason

Posted by Matt on 29 June 2011 - 10:22 PM

Not sure why, but for some reason I think the Wings may be serious players for Richards come Friday. Cement the 2nd line center and PP point, Hank plays with Pavel, clutch player... Key would be accepting the Wings' new "self cap", which I would assume would be Datsyuk's $6.7m/yr, which I don't consider a big sacrifice when you combine it with what his agent said Brad is looking for: a cup contender and a hockey market.

If the Wings can pull of a miracle at the $6.7m they still have plenty of cap space to throw around to land a decent defenseman, goaltender, etc. (Honestly, I would prefer they go for an impact player and a lesser defenseman than overspend in a seller's market on Wisniewski/Ehrhoff when the Wings will be right back in this position next summer.)

If Holland is somehow able to pilfer off Hudler that'd make it even easier.

Oh, the joys of dream scenarios...


#2192107 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

No. Just, no...


#2189397 Habs shopping Wisniewksi's rights + for a 2nd rounder

Posted by Matt on 24 June 2011 - 11:13 PM

I will say that I'd be shocked if the Wings keep all of those 2nd rounders and use them to draft players tomorrow. You've got Nick for one more year, it's additional ammo you can use to bolster the roster. Use it!
