#2093429 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Posted by Echolalia on 08 January 2011 - 01:39 AM

Between this year's injuries and last year's injuries, I'd say the hockey gods pretty much owe us a Stanley Cup this year.

Usually enforcers are plugs for the fourth line, which incidentally has been our best line as of late.


#2087642 Retire Osgood's #30?

Posted by Echolalia on 31 December 2010 - 03:56 AM

He's had a hell of a career, but I just don't see his number hanging from the rafters. The very fact that we even have to debate it speaks volumes against his chances. He's good, but he's not on the same level as Yzerman, Howe, and co.


#2087275 What's the deal with Stuart

Posted by Echolalia on 30 December 2010 - 04:11 AM

I suspect that you guys are all right to a degree. I'm glad I'm not the only one seeing it, though.


#2086055 Congratulations Chris Osgood!

God I love Babcock. What a hardass.


#2085930 Mursak Expectations

Posted by Echolalia on 27 December 2010 - 11:54 PM

He looked good tonight. Played with confidence and contributed positively on that backcheck in the first, as well as leading to a powerplay opp for the Wings. I look forward to seeing this kid more often.


#2085901 Congratulations Chris Osgood!

Its fitting that he gets number 400 on a game where he certainly deserved it. I'd much rather it be this way than him getting it months earlier on a not so Ozzie-like game.

Holy Jesus. Is Mursak quicker than Helm?


#2084549 Sorting the teams in the NHL standings

Posted by Echolalia on 26 December 2010 - 12:41 PM

NHL fans are better at math so we don't have to be spoon-fed win percentages to know what's up


#2083608 How do you think the Wings will do without Dats?

Posted by Echolalia on 23 December 2010 - 06:43 PM

Five bucks says Datsyuk practices deking and shooting with just his left hand and within the first week of his return he makes a defensman and/or a goalie look absolutely stupid with only one hand.


#2083137 Datsyuk out 4-5 weeks with broken bone in hand

Posted by Echolalia on 22 December 2010 - 11:01 PM

Here's a wonderful opportunity for all our players who aren't performing the way they want to grab the reins and lead this team.


#2077824 Jiri Hudler Watch Thread

Posted by Echolalia on 14 December 2010 - 01:55 AM

Actually tonight Hudler looked as close as he ever has to his old self. He held onto pucks a little longer and seemed a little more comfortable in the offensive zone. I did notice he opted for the pass on a mini two-on-one in the second where I'm almost certain a confident Hudler would've shot. He was pretty square to the net for a 2 on 1.

But seriously, your best bet is probably this: http://www.dafont.com/criticized.font

Go with four layers to get that complete look they use in the "G" The highest layer being smallest and red, second layer down slightly larger and white, third layer down slightly larger and red, then the fourth layer slightly larger and white with a very soft brush to get that background glow effect.


#2073929 Want to build a backyard rink

Posted by Echolalia on 07 December 2010 - 11:07 PM

Put the stakes into the ground, it doesn't matter if one is in two inches and the others are four or five inches, as long as you place them at the corners of where you think the rink will end up going. Tie some string to the tips of the stakes and connect them to each other, then pull out the level and adjust the strings so they're all level. Once you know your strings are level, you should be able to measure the height at which the string sits over the ground at each corner and determine the net slope of the area that you isolated for the rink.

Again, how the stakes are put in isn't important, as long as they mark the corners of the rink and they can hold the string tight. What's important is that the string which spans the area of your rink is level, because we're using the string as a base or origin from which we can measure deviation in the ground (and we measure deviation in the ground by the difference in height that the string sits over the ground in any two locations. If you have a perfectly level ground, then when you subtract the height that the string sits over the ground at one corner from another, you should get 0. If it isn't so level, then the string will sit higher in one corner than another and you'll get some nonzero value. The idea is to make sure that number is below 8 inches, according to your article.

Too bad these teams won't be meeting each other in the Finals.
