#2444904 Pronger is done

Posted by Jedi on 15 October 2013 - 10:22 PM

Gotta think that the league will start pushing to either hold the Flyers responsible for Pronger's cap hit, or punish them for deliberate circumvention of the cap.  If that were to happen, then I guarantee Holmgren will follow in Laviolette's footsteps...

 

...out the door...




#2442601 Will young talent ever speak out against Wings philosophy?

Posted by Jedi on 07 October 2013 - 11:26 PM

Not if that young talent wants to land a roster spot on this team...




#2441484 Patrick Roy goes crazy on Bruce Boudreau

Posted by Jedi on 04 October 2013 - 02:37 AM

Typical Roy...

Although, it will certainly rally his team around him as coach.

I may be one of only 12 gamers in the world that isn't excited about Grand Theft Auto V.


#2437830 Big Red Wings Announcement coming tomorrow

Hmmm...  A big announcement that they think everyone will like...

 

Gary Bettman's been fired?!!! DancingBannana.gif




#2437360 GDT Creation Discussion

Posted by Jedi on 17 September 2013 - 09:06 PM

I will cover the playoffs.

 

A bit early for that, don't you think?

 

In any case, let's remember that this is supposed to be a cooperative effort.  If no one else wants to make GDT's for the playoffs, then you're more than welcome to create them for each and every post-season game.  But if others want to make them for games, then it would be best to create either a rotation, or a scheduled sign up for specific games.  It's not a "first come first served to claim all available games" situation...




#2436609 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Because I know everyone was curious...

Daniel Cleary confirmed he will wear #71 this season; Alfie will stick with #11

#2436119 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

well.. luckily the cap is going up..?

 

I'm not so concerned about the cap situation (although, it is a concern) as I am the roster spot that Cleary is taking.




#2436087 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by Jedi on 12 September 2013 - 10:37 AM

From Pierre LeBrun...

Bottom line here with Dan Cleary is that he had second thoughts after agreeing to PTO with Flyers. Met with Holland/Babcock yesterday...

 

He wanted to see one last time if Wings could do anything. As @aaronward_nhl reported, Wings able to come up with 1 yr/$1.75 M

 

Cleary thanked Flyers for PTO but said he had change of heart, wants to stay in Detroit. Taking less than market value for sure.

 

 

And perhaps the most concerning tweet of all...

 

A good season by Cleary and he'll be able to get a better deal next summer with salary cap going up



#2436075 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Unbelievable. Hey Ken Holland. I'm determined to sign my next contract with Detroit. Like, REALLY determined. Think you can make a roster spot for me?

I do not like The Eagles.  There's maybe 2 songs of theirs that I can tolerate.




#2435566 Osgood to fill in Larry Murphy's job

Posted by Jedi on 09 September 2013 - 03:15 PM

Murphy's job was as a color commentator and analyst.  At least, on paper.  But I think we all know his REAL "job" was to get fans excited about $1 hot dog night.  And no one could do that better than good ole' Murph.

 

Best of luck to Ozzie in his new venture.  I think he'll be great at this, though perhaps not as entertainingly as Murph...

#2435423 What is your favorite indie game or games?

Posted by Jedi on 07 September 2013 - 07:32 PM

Journey, far and away is my favorite indie game. Everything about it is fantastic, the art direction, the soundtrack, the emotion. For a game with no spoken words, you find yourself caring an awful lot about the fate of your character.

Amazing game. Highly recommended.


#2435405 What Are You Playing?

Posted by Jedi on 07 September 2013 - 04:01 PM

Just started up a Mass Effect Trilogy run.  Starting from scratch with a brand new character, complete with a face code I found online (backwards-converted to ME1 using a converter I also found online).

 

So, yeah, gonna be on ME for awhile now...




#2435204 USA Olympic '14 Jerseys

Posted by Jedi on 05 September 2013 - 11:59 PM

I feel like there is this evil force in the world that is trying to destroy humanity by creating terrible pro hockey jerseys but they don't know what they're doing, big picture-wise. Sort of like the underpants gnomes.

 

That's about par for the course for Nike.
