#1949696 WCQF Game 3 GDT: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by Matt on 18 April 2010 - 05:00 PM

How can we be behind 2-1 to a team that has Matthew Lombardi for a number one center?

Because it isn't sheer talent that will win this series. It's effort -- and Lombardi has had it in spades.

Miserable effort. Cutesy passes, no consistent forecheck, too much play from outside the circles. It's not a coincidence that the Wings' best scoring chances from this game and in general come from hammering the Phoenix defense on the forecheck and then crashing the net.

Not true.

If the Wings wouldn't evacuate their bowels in the bed on the PK and actually take advantage of the PP opportunities they get, this game would have ended differently.

The first Coyote PP goal was unfortunate, but the second one was by far the most egrarious. Cleary gambled on the play at the blueline instead of staying in his zone and that's right where Wolski was for the pass. If he stays home tht puck doesn't get to Wolski. The third PPG, well -- I honestly blame Howard for that. Granted Helm was interfered with but Howard had a clear view of that shot but overplayed his angle to the left side and Morris made him pay.

Wings fall 3-2 to the Coyotes after a terrible effort from the 2nd period on by everyone.

Agreed -- they didn't match the Coyotes' intensity after they dialed it up a notch. As the game wore on the Wings were reaching for more pucks instead of getting "engaged', they were standing arond, trying to do too much individually, making sloppy decision, etc.. Very disappointing.

#1929890 Report: Wings to play in Cobo Arena during JLA renovation

Posted by Matt on 01 April 2010 - 01:24 PM

Looks like the Red Wings won't be getting a new arena after all: Olympia Entertainment has opted to temporarily move the team to the 12,191-seat Cobo Arena as the club begins renovating Joe Louis Arena during the last quarter of this year. The team will remain there until second half of the 2011-12 season when the renovations are completed.

IMO, this is horrible news -- I was really looking forward to a new facility behind the FOX or in Corktown...

#1912906 Wow... this forum feels... awkward

Posted by Matt on 10 March 2010 - 01:41 AM

Almost there, folks. Some minor bugs to iron out and some formatting and it'll be good to go. Tomorrow night -- PROMISE!

Thanks, Jedi. For what it's worth, site Boosters have been using the new skin (in it's work-in-progress state) as an option since last night. It'll be released soon -- the plan is sometime tonight.

As for the Reputation system, I changed the allowances for some member groups. (And yes, I can limit the daily allowances for both positive and negative rep by member group.)
