#2536474 Mantha's Injury

Posted by FlashyG on 17 September 2014 - 11:04 PM

Now if the Wings dressed some enforcers for that game.....That knee injury would've never happened.

 

Yeah an enforcer would have pounded that rut right out of the ice and Mantha would be fine.

 

You can always count on an enforcer to make sure the ice is at its highest quality.




#2536392 Ericsson and Alfredsson not 100%

Posted by FlashyG on 16 September 2014 - 11:14 PM

Canadian income tax rates for Individuals - current and previous years Federal tax rates for 2014

  • 15% on the first $43,953 of taxable income, +
  • 22% on the next $43,954 of taxable income (on the portion of taxable income over $43,953 up to $87,907), +
  • 26% on the next $48,363 of taxable income (on the portion of taxable income over $87,907 up to $136,270), +
  • 29% of taxable income over $136,270.

 

Provincial/territorial tax rates (combined chart)

 

11.16% on the next $69,758, +
12.16% on the next $70,000, +
13.16 % on the amount over $220,000

 

 

Plus, don't forget EI and CPP, I assume they pay that as well.

 

 

 

 

It's not that simple to calculate, Most professional athletes keep a residence either in their home country or the United States which allows them to pay their taxes a little differently than the average person.

 

Because not all of their money is earned within Canada they can only be taxed based on the income they make while playing at home or in another Canadian city. The rest of their tax would be payed to the government of the city/state/country their "official" residence is in.

 

It all depends on what state you live in. Michigan's tax rate combined with the federal tax rate actually costs Alfredsson more than he would be paying in Ontario.

On his 5.5 million contract he just finished he would have paid approximately 2.49 million in taxes. (45.3%) vs the maximum (42%) in Canada.

 

Of course you also have to assume that professional athletes making that kind of money likely have a pretty good accountant and/or financial planner who helps them pay the lowest tax rate possible.




#2534340 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by FlashyG on 15 August 2014 - 07:13 PM

Holland like any other GM makes lots of moves I either hate or don't understand but at the end of the day I still think he's the best GM in the history of hockey.

 

If ANY GM has earned enough trust to see a team through a rebuild its Holland.




#2533078 Winter is coming..

Posted by FlashyG on 27 July 2014 - 02:58 PM

For some reason, going by the topic title I thought this was going to be some kind of Game of Thrones related thread.

 

 

There's no reason it can't be.

#2532206 Red Wings & the Media

Posted by FlashyG on 15 July 2014 - 10:10 PM

I believe he is talking about the guy who cancelled his ticket plan and explain why he didn't agree with the things they were doing.

They told him to go support another team or somethig along those lines.

I can't remember the exact thread it was in.

 

I've read that in a couple places but its just a claim made by a fan with no screenshot or any sort of proof that it's a legitimate email from anyone within the organization.

 

For all we know it was made up by the person that originally made the claim in the first place.




#2532201 Tomas Jurco's Ridiculous New Stick Trick

Posted by FlashyG on 15 July 2014 - 09:23 PM

As talented as he is, this is what it might look like when Holland and Babs are handing out the roster spots after training camp.

#2532036 Please Help Me Win GDT of the year.

Posted by FlashyG on 14 July 2014 - 02:33 PM

Yeesh.  I'm just glad you guys already used your two buyouts.

 

As far as HF goes, I'm pretty sure professional contracts don't preclude doing a bit of fancy stickwork for charity organizations, so there should be no problem with him putting in a little time with HF.  It's for the kids.

 

Someone has to class that place up a bit...Charity work is a good way to describe it.

This reminds me of a GDT I did earlier this year called the "Ken Commandments"

I missed that, but was there a ntc/nmc given?

 

Matt's stingier than Holland, he doesn't hand them out like candy im6p95.gif




#2531724 Confused on the direction of this team going forward

It's even better with the accompanying song.

i Can't, I... just... Can't... stop... watching...


wait babs is black lol

 

:ranting: ...i was hoping nobody would notice.

 

Imageready doesn't have the best color editing tools so I couldn't make his hand white. The best I could do was grey so I just left it hoping nobody would notice.


Even stranger was that you noticed the black hand but not the fact that they are moving backwards

Don't worry Kenny's got a firm grip on the wheel.

And can I ask what program you're using?

 

I'm using an old school version of Photoshop. (Photoshop 7)

 

Also a big thank you to everyone for their comments and for the votes. I won by a pretty fair margin by the time voting closed, so at least there was some positive to go along with the Cleary debacle.




#2531448 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by FlashyG on 11 July 2014 - 01:26 AM

Perhaps some gifs will cheer everyone up.

Posted by FlashyG on 07 July 2014 - 09:08 PM

Thanks to everyone who helped me make it to the finals. I'm now facing a professional graphic designer and the person who taught me how to do my GDT's in HFboard 24 image style.

 

At this point I don't mind losing at all, but if you'd like to cast your vote for me or Slocal of the Sharks here is the place to vote.

Thanks again for helping to defeat the Flyers and for getting me to my first Waffle Cup final. Last year my run ended in the Conference Championships vs Montreal.
