No, no worries, looks like I’m having some issues with this one.

*headdesk*

Please bear with me as I attempt to resolve them.

Firefox is killing me… everything renders great in Chrome.

Ugh.

I apologize for this, everyone.

Okay, other than the massive gap at the bottom of the frame for Chrome, everything should be relatively normal now.

If anyone notices anything amiss, please let me know. Also, sorry for the spam.

In other news…

FOX Sports Detroit announced today that they have added former Red Wings goaltender Manny Legace to their broadcast crew this season.

Legace, who spent 11 seasons in the NHL and won a Stanley Cup championship with the Wings, will serve as a college hockey analyst for the 2013-14 campaign.

“I’m happy to be joining the FOX Sports Detroit team,” Legace said in a statement. “Thanks to John Davidson, I enjoyed my broadcasting experience in St. Louis with the Blues while I was injured. I’m excited to bring my perspective as a player to these college hockey games.”

FSD will broadcast 21 more college hockey games this season; Legace will make his on-air debut alongside Matt Shepard on Friday, Oct. 25 at Michigan State.

Woah, that’s waaaay too many goalies in the crew. But should at least provide Mickey with lots of opportunities for jokes.

This.

Thanks for the GDT Red.  My only critique: The standings would be more informative if they reflected the divisional standings.

Thanks RM.

Ottawa rivalry night

This is only round 1, we will still have to endure the “Alfie first return to Ottawa” crap.

The standings would be more informative if they reflected the divisional standings.

I think it is relative to the reader, because I find the league format more informative to show where teams actually stand in relation to each other. As playoffs near, it becomes more important viewing for lower level standings to see where playoff seeding play out.

...stupid “job” getting in the way.

I feel for ya.  It sucks when real life gets in the way of fun.  You’re doing a terrific job with the GDTs.

Just popped in to say me likey the 18-20-22 line.

Thanks for the props, folks.

What I could do is provide a link to the Divisional and/or Conference standings as well… or I might be able to come up with something a little more interesting. Let me see how hard this will be with my absolutely zero knowledge of HTML/scripting. wink

I’d actually changed that to “... stupid ‘real life’....” but it reverted to the old version after a browser mishap (or two). I may just change it again anyway. wink

WaitwaitwaitWAIT… you’re telling me..  Daniel Alfredsson used to play in Ottawa?

WHY IS NOBODY ANYWHERE TALKING ABOUT THIS?!?


No complaints here, Red.  Seems fine enough to me.

RM, it is not difficult for any reader so interested to go to nhl.com and easily and quickly sort by division or conference.  you should not be burdened to load down the GDT with every conceivable option and remotely related fact.

I didn’t realize I sparked a mini debate.  Don’t anyone get me wrong, I’m not bitching.  Just offering my thoughts.
