#2611350 Improved Spam Protection and Forum Maintenance Update

Posted by Matt on 29 May 2015 - 08:32 AM

The LGW forums have been upgraded to Google's reCAPTCHA2 spam security, with the expectation this fixes the flux of spam users that have infested the site the last few days. (The old reCAPTCHA 1 version obviously isn't as bulletproof as it once was.)


While performing that upgrade I also performed a general maintenance update for the forums as well.




I'm currently testing a major upgrade to the forums to IP.Board 4.0, which should roll out later on this offseason! It promises a whole host of new feature and functionality.

#2312528 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by Konnan511 on 02 July 2012 - 12:44 AM

People's reactions are priceless. We signed 4 players on July first. One guy was coveted by every NHL team and has serious speed and shooting abilities. One guy was heralded as the next big thing for goalies. One guy is one of the best pests in the league and fights and is a heart and soul guy who just put up 30 points and one guy who is a right handed shot and loves to shoot and will put up 20+ goals. All of these guys were all had for less than 10mil and we've upgraded our team toughness, backup goaltending, speed, and scoring. We still have 15mil plus we can spend and that's not even considering trading any of our players or the 7mil extra we get from the soft cap. And we haven't even signed two of Parise, Semin, Suter, traded for Ryan or Nash yet.

We improved our team and aren't done yet and people are already complaining. How spoiled are you brats?

Go Wings! In Kenny I trust!

#2218115 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by number9 on 25 October 2011 - 07:49 AM

Omg! an eye patch will be perfect for Pronger's evilness :pirate:

But seriously, I hope this isn't serious. As much as I think he should be in jail (he would probably thrive their and love it anyway), he is a fantastic hockey player and I hope he gets to play for many many more years. The guy is just one heck of a complete defense-man, a respected adversary and rival, and a helluva leader with such a huge personality that I love to see in hockey. Get well soon chrissy poo!!!

#2213295 10/7 GDT:Senators 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 07 October 2011 - 09:07 PM

At which point did Ericsson look bad tonight? I didn't notice. Most of the team looked rather sluggish for the first 15 and last 15 minutes of the game.

He didn't. But he's the whipping boy. If he isn't awesome then someone will say he sucks. Especially since Hudler scored and they couldn't rip on them.

His pinching makes me nervous, but Ericsson's play has given me some hope. Hopefully he improves.

Great start for the Wings, I just wish they could've kept it clamped down at the end.

As much fun as the five goals are, I don't want a repeat of last season's GAA.

I liked our 5 goals; I didn't like their 3 goals. More PK practice for everyone. Anyway, a big heck yeah to Bert for scoring the first goal of the year; ditto to Lidstrom looking like Datsyuk, White looking like Lidstrom, and double ditto for Emmerton and Hudler pleasantly surprising me. GAWD I'm glad hockey's back!!!

#2211752 Gustav Nyquist

Posted by Scott Stevens on 02 October 2011 - 09:52 PM

The closest way I can demonstrate this over text is Nyew-queest (with a hint of V within the u) and Setterbearj (the j is mostly silent).

Just like how Filppula is supposed to sound like Philp-Pula as if an accent is over the third P.


Zetterberg is Zetterberg. Nyquist is Nyquist.

We are not in Sweden. We are in America. And in America, we speak English.

#2104271 ASG Starter "to stay home" due to injury

Posted by under_par_00 on 24 January 2011 - 12:52 PM

He has a concussion for f***'s sake. He has missed a lot of games for the Pens now, probably around 10. I don't think he is required to play in the ASG WITH A FREAKING CONCUSSION.

Also, Z was not suspended, it was Dats and Lids. Dats missed 1 period before the ASG, Crosby has missed ~10 games!!!

#2043864 Andreas Lilja to Anaheim

Posted by b.shanafan14 on 10 October 2010 - 02:43 PM

Oh the irony. Lilja was unemployed because the Wings picked up Salei, a former Duck, who then scraps with Sutton, injuring his thumb to create an employment opportunity for Lilja with the Ducks.
