Looking for high-res Wings pictures...

21 February 2014 - 12:45 AM

I rotate about 30 or so Red Wings pictures on my desktop background at work.  I have a couple of pictures from the '09 Winter Classic, 20 or so from this year's WC, and a few pictures from various games and so.


But I'm always on the lookout for more pictures.  I'm pretty sure I've tapped both Google and Bing's image searches dry.  Anybody have any sources for high resolution pictures?


Looking (obviously) for pictures that are wallpaper sized or so...


Thanks for any help!

2013/14 GDT Sign Up Sheet

15 December 2013 - 12:03 AM

Below is the remaining schedule for the Red Wings 2013-2014 Regular Season.  If you see a game you'd like to volunteer for, please post in this thread with your selection(s).  As members volunteer for games, I will continually update this post, to reflect which games have been picked.
Please remember, if you volunteer to create a GDT, and for some reason you're unable to make it, please contact MabusIncarnate via PM ASAP. Mabus has agreed to be the designated backup in case someone can't post the thread.  Don't abuse his generosity in this matter, though.
And let's be fair here.  I'm going to suggest that no member have more than a few games "reserved" at a time.  If that turns out to be too many or too few to be feasible, of course it can be modified.

Report: Cleary to sign with PHI, 3 yrs, $2.75m/yr, NTC

09 September 2013 - 11:23 PM

Seeing plenty of reports from credible sources, appears its unofficially official, Cleary will sign with the Flyers.

Some details from Helene St. James...

Daniel Cleary is going to Philadelphia Flyers for 3 years, AAV of $2.75 Million. NTC. Deal won't be official till end of month

Know Red Wings teammates very disappointed to lose Daniel Cleary. Coach Mike Babcock very badly wanted him back. Guy delivered in playoffs.

And to answer the question we had of who gets the #11 if Cleary returns...

Daniel Alfredsson told Cleary last week if Cleary re-signed with Red Wings, was happy for Cleary to keep no. 11. Now, no need to switch.

And finally, so everyone knows what kind of cap crunch this puts Philly in, from Sean Gentile (NHL writer for the Sporting News)...

So they Flyers are now nearly $5.5 million over the cap, which is more than Pronger makes. Man oh man.

Buffalo Sabres unveil new third jerseys

04 September 2013 - 03:46 PM

The Buffalo Sabres have unveiled new third jerseys on twitter today, with the help of Steve Ott.  Trying something new, the Sabres have a jersey that has different colors for the front and back (yellow front, blue back), a first for the NHL.
And GOD are they awful.  Kudos for trying something new, but these are possibly the worst new jersey revealed this summer, and that's including the Team USA sweaters...


Greg "Puck Daddy" Wyshynski is apparently not a fan either...

These look like warm-up jerseys for an indoor lacrosse team. The “Buffalo” font is terrible. The two different types of yellow are terrible. The gray inside the number that doesn’t carry over to the name plate is terrible. The gray on the arms, making it look like the player dipped his sleeves in wet cement ...terrible. And, sorry, is that some kind of lapel they’ve built in around the NHL logo on the neckline? Is Steve Ott going to skate out wearing an ascot? Or perhaps a fancy broach?

If nothing else, this jersey disproves our theory that you can put the Sabres logo on anything and it’s automatically awesome. Don’t tell us we have to rethink Sriracha too.

It also leads us to assume that team president Ted Black moved the guy who did the Ville Leino contract over to the Sabres’ uniform development department, based on these results.
