To me, this looks like a budget website. They may have contracted this out to some new company to build and it's terrible. Someone in an early post mentioned the site speed, how it loads slow and I just had to run a speed check on it. Whats really sad is that they didn't put an ounce of effort into optimizing the speed, which has many downfalls.
they say Burrows was fined 4 times, all due to his behavior not head shots/boarding/etc.
Probably the history.
I agree with you that NHL is pretty inconsistent. They need to work on it. But yeah, kronners hit personally I felt the one game (as inopportune as it was) was somewhat justified. The White hit on Jurco imo shud have gotten some sort of fine at the very least maybe - that way it would add to his "history". He's basically in the clear and I expect he'll make another hit. heh.

'White faces two charges of careless use or storage of a firearm or prohibited device, two charges of possession of a firearm in an unauthorized place and single charges of unauthorized possession of a firearm, unauthorized importing of a prohibited or restricted firearm, and breach of recognizance.'
I think the definition of 'vague' is seen in the quote above...Word of advice for those who enjoy hunting, or firearms - only live here in the USA.

Stop and think back for a moment guys, think back over at least the last 10-15 years. Outside of the 01-02 season (which was marred at the beginning by the 9/11 attacks that took some of the "fun" out of the season openener,) When was the last time you have been more excited and giddy or even seen so much interest and hype for the opening night of a Red Wings season? We've had coaching changes, we've had rookies debut, we've had UFA's making their debut, but just reflect on all that is going on today, and that is exactly it, ALL OF THAT is going on right now! Today! Not only a new coach, but outside of Granato, a new coaching staff and philosophy, not only is a rookie debuting, but a 19 year old local kid who just got drafted 16 months ago, PLUS the rest of our young players like Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Pulkkinen! We're excited for a new life for Smith and Kindl, Howard has regained his pre-injury play, Mrazek is here to stay, no longer do we have an average back-up that may see some spot play once in a while.we, once again, have a legit 1a and 1aa goalie tandem. We have the UFA right handed offensive d-man that Holland has coveted for years and years. We have no less than 8 kids in GR (if not more) who can be called up and step right into the NHL if needed and contribute. We FINALLY have a team where the best players will play and not lose out to the veteran just because of seniority. There is a lot of buzz in Hockeytown this season opener, take a big inhale of it and breathe it all in, this, my friends, is the beginning of our new generation of a Red Wings super team. We witnessed Yzerman, Fedorov, Lidstrom, Kozlov, etc... all grow together as a team and it seems we have a core today that if kept together, can stay together (just like our 90's team) for a long, long time. This area has not been this excited in forever...

What? I took the position that no one knows what the facts are, and our personal bias will in the meantime fill in the blanks as to what we 'think' happened. That is called having an open mind before the actual trial starts where they present the facts.
It seems that you have already assumed Kane is guilty, and that anything anyone says contrary is messed up to you. That, my friend is your bias, and exactly what I am referring to.
Any more messed up than thinking that a woman who reported a crime is a money hungry liar (as quite a few around here have not so subtly insinuated)?
This woman has done NOTHING to have her character called into question. She reported an alleged crime, and obeyed the directives of the legal system thereafter.
What should she have done differently in order to be taken seriously?
Not talked to the media...oh wait, she didn't.
Reported the crime immediately...oh wait, she did.
Refuse to settle the case out of court...Yep, did that too.
Apparently, if you're a woman (and you want to be taken seriously when reporting a sexual crime), you better have never been drunk or horny in your life because god knows you can't be raped if you made out with a guy in a bar earlier in the night.
This is shameful. What if you reported a stolen car and everyone assumed you were lying in order to defraud the insurance company? Oh, that's right, it woudn't happen because nobody is insane enough to assume that kind of thing regularly occurs. Unless you're a woman, and you report a rape...then you're obviously weaving a nefarious web of deceit.
The most obnoxious thing about this is that nobody actually believe the b.s. they're spewing.
If your daughter, or sister, or girlfriend, or wife, or mother reported an alleged sexual assualt, nobody here would think "well she was hitting on that guy at the bar, so I've got to consider the possibility that maybe she just wants his money".
Negative. Of course, you can. Not letteraly though, but math can definitely help doing that.
I wish this site had a sarcasm button. I like the analytical part of the game too, I may not always fully understand it but I do think it is a very useful tool
One has to wonder why it took so long? Why didn't we have a guy like this before now? Holland's usually ahead of the curve. My knee jerk reaction is to assume that Babcock didn't care about it. But I don't know, and can't substantiate that at all. Just seems like the same old timey mentality that made him "not care about shootouts" might also apply here.
I'm pretty sure that's inaccurate, at least a bit. Babs was very happy last summer when we got an analytics guy, so much so he let him do quite a bit and eventually took him go to Toronto with him. Guy even got to pick our shootout guys too
