Don't forget that the league controls the club's official website now. They started that a few years back to (I guess) 'standardize the product' amongst all the team. If you notice, they all use a very similar template.

 

 

Did a quick search - the change dates back to 2006. (Why I remember crap like this, I have no idea.)

 

 

 

Newsday (now in the process of being bought by Cablevision): The legal battle over marketing turf dates to 2006, when team owners voted 25-3 to approve transfer of all 30 teams' digital rights to the league, mimicking a "unitized" Internet business model used by the National Football League since 1999 and Major League Baseball since 2001. The Rangers cast one of the "no" votes...At the heart of the conflict is MSG's belief that, as a big-market team, the Rangers should be free to find new revenue streams outside the limits of market-sharing restrictions.

Another point I wanted to mention is the "stay connected 24/7" who the hell wants that ? The PR guys should realize one thing, people are looking at the official homepage to get that stuff of information and don't want to use third party sites/plugin in order to get the information they are looking for. So how about making the Wings homepage better ? Finding videos on the site is tedious (can't even see the day time) and there really is not a ton of news.

Trotz is definitely winning the war of public opinion.

 

He took out a full page newspaper ad to thank the fans for their support.

 

Class.

Really..?

 

Thanks, Capt Obvious.. hahaha

 

I was making a joke.

Seeing it is not the same to the players as holding it.

REQ: Since their nickname is "the B's".. I was thinking a cartoon bee with the B logo on it and a giant red fly swatter with the Wings logo or the Old English D logo in the mesh part..

Love, spit, bubble gum and hope. ;)

 

What's the logic for the Wings winning again?

Yes, my unseen internet princess, I love your pretty face as I imagine it to look. ;)

 

But yeah - #Lumbus

Is what for real? My beautiful face? My sparkling wit? I assure you, it's not too good to be true. If you're referring to the #Lumbus thing, I believe it was started by the Kings official twitter account...last season? My memory is not as amazing as my other attributes, sorry.

#2509551 Kyle Quincey Appreciation thread

Posted by FireCaptain on 14 April 2014 - 11:35 AM

Thank you for being an uninjurable iron horse this year. You are one of only two Red Wings to play in all 82 games.

 

Despite all that ice time you still managed to come up only 5th in defensive scoring and 18th in overall team scoring. 

 

You averaged slightly more than 1 boneheaded penalty minute per game (88 minutes in 82 games) - which, coincidentally, is the team high for penalty minutes this year. 

 

Your four goals speak volumes about your inability to find the twine and yet - you never stop trying. Little the Little Kyle That Could - you rank 10th on the team in shots with 106. Your 3.8% shooting percentage actually makes us miss Dan Cleary's 6.3%. Your single GWG must have stirred something down deep that encouraged you like little angel on your shoulder. Every time you touched the puck that little guy could be heard shouting, "SHOOT KYLE, SHOOT! You're good enough, you're smart enough and doggone it, people like you (more than MIKAEL SAMUELSSON)!"

 

You points production was damn near equal home and away - 6 home and 7 away, but your +/- shows that you really get nervous at the Joe - +6 on the road and -11 at home. You did this all while saying, "Damn the critics! My -5 is a meaningless stat anyway!"

 

Having said all that, you did spend an average of 30 more seconds on ice in all of the winning games than the losing games - 21:02 vs. 20:35 - so that makes it clear - MOAR QUINCEY = MOAR WINS!

It's almost required NOT to make sense! That's what makes sports fandom great!

 

 It's all very childish but that's why we have sports, right?
