#2650986 New NHL website design....

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 February 2016 - 10:01 AM

The first word that came to mind was something like Wordpress with an NHL skin.

this thing is even worse than the re designed TSN one because I looks so cheap unreal at least TSN has some nice elements but boy did the NHL screw up here. Not that I visited that site often but now I can't find anything and who in his right mind thought iframe like site scrolling would be a good idea? honestly create one site designed for Desktops and one minimalistic

#2650515 Jimmy Howard's Stadium Series mask

Absolutely amazing design, some goalies really like to go over the top with their design but for whatever reason Howard hardly has any bad design.

#2650454 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

Posted by frankgrimes on 29 January 2016 - 06:35 AM

Well that might be true, but how many of them want to tell that to John Scott in person?



 especially since most haven't even played some higher level juniors which Scott obvously has :)

#2650417 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 January 2016 - 07:18 PM

I've seen this posted in the All-Star thread butI think it deserves it's own thread because the ASG thread will be full with ASG talk saturday.








But at the same time: this isn’t Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I’m not some random person off the street, and I didn’t win a golden ticket to “play hockey with the stars.” I won an internet fan vote, sure. And at some point, without question, it was a joke. It might even finish as a joke. But it didn’t start as one. It started with a very small pool, out of a very small pool, out of the very, very smallest pool of hockey players in the world: NHLers. That was the vote. A fan vote, an internet vote — but a vote from among the 700 or so best hockey players in North American professional sports.

And I’m one of them.

If the league thought this was an embarrassment, pretty much all of the players I’ve encountered have thought otherwise. I’ve gotten texts from so many guys saying the same thing: “You should go.”

And that didn’t happen because of the internet. I busted my ass to be one of them. I’ve skated every day since I was three years old to be one of them. I’ve persevered through Juniors roster cuts, Alaskan bus rides, Advanced Dynamics exams, and — yes — fights, to be one of them.

But I’m one of them. And that means a lot to me.

It means a lot to my family.


So when someone from the NHL calls me and says, “Do you think this is something your kids would be proud of?”

… That’s when they lost me.



Goes to show you what a bunch of mean spirited, disgusting idiots the NHL has in their front-office and what a SOB Don Maloney was in that whole situation. I hope the players help him score some goals as a big F U to the NHL.


I'm also loving the phrase " a guy like me" - whatever people may think about John Scott and his role the fact is, he is one of 700 NHL players, period. If some suit wearing idiot would have told me on how to be a dad and what MY kids might be proud of I don't know if I would have responded as friendly as Scott did, so huge kudos to him.


Smart and great guy NHL needs more John Scotts and less idiots in their headquarter.

#2649031 And your NHL All-Star Division Captains are....

How crazy will it be if his teammates keep setting him up and the other goalies are easy on him just to piss off the league by causing him to win the MVP award?

I'd do that in a heartbeat, a great guy making league minimum would get a car, some money and have a great experience.

Fans are trolling. How do you not see that lol.

And Montreal voting ALL Habs player in a few years ago wasn't? Look everyone can have his opinion I don't care but the fact ofa the matter is this:


ASG is seen as a joke, players don't want to go (bet Crosby is happy!) but the NHL created this voting contest in order to get more clicks (the currency of the 21 century) and the fans decided, period. Was ist trolling or making a joke of a joke-game sure? But hey fans played by the rules and the league has to accept that.


And guess what I'm willing to bet my house that Scott has a lot more hockey talent than 90 % of the people who can't get their asses out of their comfy chaires. He won the voting and he deserves it, period.


btw. something like hardest punch, exceptional endurance during a scum would be some nice additions...hardest punch would be a toss up between Orr and McGrattan, endurance McGrattan and MacIntyre for sure.

It's real simple:


ASG is a voting contest - fans voted Scott in - therefore he goes the NHL can stfu he deserves to go period.

#2647667 1/11 GDT - Red Wings at Kings - 10:30 PM EST

Posted by frankgrimes on 13 January 2016 - 02:15 AM

So cynical...
He played very well after signing his contract, this slump is quite recent.

apparently if you sign a 4 mill plus contract you aren't allowed to slump or go through a bad stretch. it's not like guys like Crosby , Stammer or Toews - the 3 best players in the world - would ever go through something like this.

#2646497 LAK/PHI trade

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 January 2016 - 01:45 PM

Schenn at only 2 mill per is a steal physical beast and a reliable shutdown defenseman

Lecavalier will retire after this season

#2646493 Ken Campbell predicts Stamkos to Detroit blockbuster

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 January 2016 - 01:36 PM

Stamkos will walk in the off season and could join Babs in Toronto

Drouin is nice for the right price wouldn't give up Mantha for him

since this doesn't come from Dreger, LeBrun or McKenzie I don't believe it

#2646479 Wings Need on D and Glaring Inconsistencies

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 January 2016 - 12:05 PM

Personally I'm glad GMs aren't listening to fans because we all have different opinions on what should have been done and now. But we aren't the ones knowing all the ins and outs of the job nor is our job on the line if we mess up.

that being said I'm still amazed how much KH has changed his approach , as Wings we received the players we wanted back in the good old days but now it seems like Holland is afraid of blockbusters and for whatever reason ignoring the need for more size and gritty type of game from the bottom 6, third pairing

#2646461 Press & Jax swap

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 January 2016 - 07:58 AM

Seth Jones at first will turn out to be a second pairing defenseman at best he could become a Shea Weber light which is still very good. As far Johansen the guy has all the tools to become an absolute stud as a number 1 center.

Nashville received a huge upgrade to their offense while giving up some depth of somethng they are already loaded with, good defenders. Coloumbus has improved their defense in a great way but they'll now spend years and years searching another rugged number 1 center...and we've all seen how easy that is.
