#2622994 Kane Off NHL 16 Cover

Posted by Jedi on 12 August 2015 - 09:13 PM

Stevie was on it in the mid-90's, not sure when, but it was pre-Cup.


Stevie was (sorta) on the cover of NHL 96.

#2618453 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by Jedi on 01 July 2015 - 05:22 PM

In typical LGWs fashion, the thread about the Richards signing has more pages than the Mike Green one. 


Fewer years = Less time to complain. Gotta get the shots in while they can, and make em count more than 3 years worth of complaints...


#2615458 LGW Moderator Problems

Posted by Jedi on 20 June 2015 - 10:26 AM

We've confirmed that the recent influx of spammers are actual people, not spambots or anything like that. As such, there may not be much we can do to prevent the occasional attack.

We have tools that make cleaning up these attacks extremely easy (one click on their profile and they're banned, content removed and ip-blocked). But unfortunately we can't use these tools until the spam posts are brought to our attention. That's where we need members to use the "report post" tool.

When a post is reported, the system sends an email to each of the boards moderators and Admin. That way we get notified, even if we're not on the boards.

One thing though, most of these spammers tend to attack the boards in the very late/early hours, when most people are asleep. LGW mods are just like everyone else, we have jobs and responsibilities that make it hard to be online at the time these spammers hit. So please understand that we will take care of the attacker as soon as we can, but it may be several hours before a mod can be online.

We can either fight about our differences, or we can embrace them and happily eat Starburst together.  
Gotta love diversity.


I'll take the reds and yellows, you take the pinks and oranges. Problem solved.

Music that is newer than mid-to-late 90s is just not that good (by and large, of course certain notable exceptions exist).


#2602990 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by Jedi on 28 April 2015 - 09:56 PM

One of the worst things to come out of this, is that you will probably never see Kronwall make his signature hits again.  If the NHL is willing to suspend him, when he has never been suspended before, then he will have no incentive to make that kind of hit again.  Any hit from here on out will have this suspension looming over it.

 

RIP "You Got Kronwall'd".  You had a pretty good run.

#2583051 Matthew Wuest, Capgeek founder, passes away from cancer

Posted by Jedi on 19 March 2015 - 08:21 PM

Such sad and terrible news. The world is that much darker and less informed now that he is gone.

I remember hearing more than one NHL GM advise a reporter to check CapGeek for an answer. To me, there could have been no better endorsement for his site and his work.

Rest In Peace Matthew. Thank you for all you did for hockey fans.


#2577593 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by Jedi on 02 March 2015 - 01:47 PM

I'm interested to see how Zid will fit in. I assume Marchenko goes back down now.

 

Marchenko will be sent down tomorrow regardless.  It's a paper move that allows him to play in the AHL playoffs.  Pulkkinen likely will go down like this too.

 

But yes, I can't imagine Marchenko supplanting any of the other 5 guys on the blue line.

 

5 Guys...  Man, now I want a burger...

It's worth noting that Zidlicky waived his NTC to come to Detroit.

I think Cory Cross (and the Cory Cross trade) gets a bad rap around here unfairly.

That's right. I said it, and I stand by it.


#2572671 Nashville Predators to Host Alumni Game vs. Detroit Red Wings

WOOLLEY BULLY!!

Must win this game. Don't care if it has no effect on the standings.

Must. Win. This. Game.

Best news I've had all day.


#2570904 Franson to Preds

Posted by Jedi on 15 February 2015 - 11:57 AM

1st round pick was too high a price, and with Toronto in our division, it would have been higher.

I don't remember who it was, but someone had some interesting speculation regarding any Toronto-to-Detroit trade. They said that above and beyond the traditional conference rival issues, there's also the whole "Mike Babcock to Toronto" issue as well. If Toronto wants any shot at landing Babs, they have to hope Detroit loses out early in the playoffs. As such, they won't be interested in sending Detroit any player that might help them make a deeper run, since that would significantly lessen the chances that Babcock leaves.
