Trying a little something different with the section layout… please let me know how much, if any, your eyes bleed.

I really liked the seperated brain and Mule-like symptoms.

8:00 start time, eh? Glad I read that. Otherwise, I would have just assumed the normal 8 hour time differential for west coast games.

Red, you have finally become a useful, productive member of society. Your mom must be so proud of you wink

Looks good Red!  Hell, I forgot WinniePeg had a team….again.  Nice logo though…

I think the Chief lived in Paul’s basement before he hit the BIG time….  cool grin

God is in the line up again.  That’s all I needed to see.

Interesting that Tootoo is in.  Almost like the coaches are trying to decide who stays and who goes among Eaves, Tootoo and Sammy. 

I liked “separated brain,” and “Mule-like symptoms” too.  wink

Looking forward to seeing ex-Wolverine Jacob Trouba tonight.  He won the best defenseman trophy at last year’s World Juniors, left Michigan after his FRESHMAN year, was drafted by Winnipeg and went straight to the NHL.  I see he’s been averaging over 21 minutes of ice time. 

It will be interesting to see Almquist tonight too.

Thanks, RedMenace!  The GDT is looking good!

LGRW!!!!!

“Brendan Smith - Separated brain”

Clever. Almost blew right by that one.

I don’t quite possess the scathing wit of Chief or VooXie, so I have to insert my “yuks” in other, more subtle ways.

Here’s a question for you guys: From a readability standpoint, do you think it would be better to place the “Projected Lineups” along with the “Individual Stats” for each team? I don’t know why, but I just feel like the “Lineups” are out of place or something…

Thanks RM. GDT looks really good.

From a readability standpoint, do you think it would be better to place the “Projected Lineups” along with the “Individual Stats” for each team?

Yeah, I think so. It’s kinda wonky with the individual stats segment for each team and then a segment that is more like a one-stop-shop section for each team.
Along the lines of readability, the layout might read better to apply an outline structure to the sections; and it will hold some consistency for the reader. Like: Event info, League Info, home team info, visitor info, miscellaneous info, external info. Something like that. But do it however you want, I’m not an expert media guy, it’s only a thought.

Yes Red, Great job.

I like the information, the pictures, the graphics and “Hot and Not” and especially the witty descriptive remarks.

You are Rocking the GDT!

You’ve been talking to my step-mom…she was always asking me if I “had anything clever to add”....

the answer was usually “yes” of course


followed by “You’re grounded go to your room”

which was then usually followed by “pffft….whatever”

which was then usually followed by a barage of slippers and/or cutlery
