#2556459 Calendar Wallpapers!

Posted by Jasper84 on 13 December 2014 - 02:49 PM

Huge fan of Matt's wallpapers, was using them every time a new one came up and always check beginning of the month for a new one. It feels very awkward after all this time not having a Wings calendar wallpaper on my computer during the season. With some free time today, I decided to make my own and will share here as well.

 

They aren't Matt quality of course, but they'll do. I tried to keep a similar theme that we're used to here.

Here's to hoping the lack of quality will bait Matt back into creating them!




#2557074 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 16 December 2014 - 12:12 PM

I feel mixed about Nelly taking the job. First, he's a cool guy and is one of the smarter coaches out there. I watched him for years in Muskegon and Grand Rapids and have a few pictures of us after the Muskegon Fury won the UHL Colonial Cup. He's coached at all levels. But... it's Edmonton. Eakins deserved to be fired. I just hope Nelly can turn the Oilers around, but this season is lost. I know it's only interim but maybe that's a good thing for him :)

#2555115 Theoretical "Expansion Draft" implications - Who to protect?

Posted by The Greek on 09 December 2014 - 04:06 PM

I would rather pretend that this isn't a possibility. God, I hate the idea of expansion.


#2555007 Preds @ Avs 12/9/14.

Posted by FireCaptain on 09 December 2014 - 12:12 AM

Well, I'm out in Colorado for fire training and part of the bucket list is to hit a game in every rink. Would be preferable if it were a Wings game, but when someone else is footing the travel bill, I can't be choosy. 

 

At least the Avs are playing my home state team - the Preds. 

 

Just picked up 4 - 8th row seats in the corner where the Preds shoot twice for $31/ticket. Face value of over $100 each..

 

Apparently no one wants to see the Avs/Preds on a Tuesday night.

 

 




#2554495 Honest NHL Slogans

Honest NHL slogans BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Dec. 6, 2014 11:37 PM
You've seen "Honest Advertising Slogans" floating around the web before, and a few months ago an "Honest NHL Slogans" thread was passed around the Internet for people to get creative with. The results from the thread were hilarious, and an imgur image user has taken the best suggestions from the thread and created these amazing wallpaper slogans! Here are a few of our favourites.

 

Here was my favorite:

#2551554 Doggone it Danny Cleary

Posted by F.Michael on 24 November 2014 - 03:24 PM

Not surprising...Danny more or less 'grew up' in Detroit after he bombed in Chicago/Edmonton/Phoenix.

 

Even though his best playing years are behind him; I could see him as part of the Wings organization down the road.




#2550134 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

Posted by Jesusberg on 20 November 2014 - 11:28 AM

He's an idiot? Really?

I can't speak for anyone else, but the last person in this world I'd expect to screw me over financially is my mother. It's one thing to be awful with money, but what they did with his money goes beyond being financially irresponsible - they milked the **** out of him. They treated him like a cash cow and ran his debt into the ground. The amount they spent/lost has more to do with their greed and taking advantage of a situation than it does with making smart decisions. Disgusting on their part.

The one good thing for Johnson here is that he still has 7-8 good years left of earning potential. 




#2548783 Former Wings coach/GM Bryan Murray has stage 4 cancer

Posted by number9 on 13 November 2014 - 11:42 PM

I'm a cancer survivor myself. I was fortunate to catch mine early, but it still took 2 surgeries and 2 years out of my life. What Murray is facing is something I can't imagine. I would've vacated my job by now if I was him. But he's a stronger man than me. Goodluck to him and his family.


#2547699 Red Wings Central Closing Down (completely) Nov. 7th

Posted by drumnj on 06 November 2014 - 07:05 PM

Back in September Matt (different Matt) said he was no longer doing articles and write-ups on prospects on Red Wings Central.  At the time he said that the forums would stay up, but a week ago he posted that they were being closed as well.  I didn't see anything posted here about it, HFboards had a farewell thread at the time.  I do have to say it was one of the better assesment sites for Wings prospects, especially the rankings.

 

Some of you may be familiar with the forums there, as it was pretty laid back...well since there was little to no moderation (so quite the opposite as here).  I would assume he's going to dedicate all his time to CapGeek (if you didn't know a Wings fan runs it) and everything will be pretty much frozen in time.  Just thought a post here wouldn't hurt as we are losing an exclusively Red Wings blog/news/forum site.




#2547659 Leafs' Ashton suspended 20 games for violating PED policy

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 November 2014 - 04:40 PM

 This league is so ridiculous it's not even funny:

 

slam someone through the glass...$ 2.500 fine when you are making 14.000.000 a year

spear someone...$ 5.000 fine for a 6 mill per player

slam an opponents face on the ice...14 games

using performance enhancing help...20 games

 

 

summary: f*** you NHL the whole front office needs to get cross checked by Steve Macintyre so they'll go back to their greedy, non integrity life.




#2545894 10/31 GDT : Los Angeles Kings (2) at Red Wings (5), 7:30 EST

Posted by Echolalia on 31 October 2014 - 09:21 PM

6-2-2 for a month that we were suppose to be very bad in

 

With the Wings its never the elite opponents I worry about.   Its the Florida Panthers of the NHL that usually do us in.

I wish this was on Sportsnet so we could see the refs cam. I think it would be view up his own ass.
