Go for it! Need some new blood on the GDT front!
It's too bad you can't "quote" after a thread has been closed. That would be helpful for looking at how people format.
For example I have no idea how the tables are created. They seem like too much work.

Excellent Benny! Updated the tables.

I'll grab the Red Wings game, since it's short notice. Getting bored of my old template, so I've got a new one for tomorrow that I'm going to try out. PS: if anyone wants my templates, just holler!

Okee dokee - I'll ZIP up the old one, and upload it. After tomorrow's game, I'll ZIP up my new template. It will include the PSD file, with the slices created for the images, a text file that I use to put in the various stats, setup the images, etc, along with a few font files that I use (TrueType, so should work on a Mac or a PC - I created a "Jets" font that mimics their jersey lettering for one of the fonts).

I'll put some basic instructions in, but essentially all I do is:
  1. Gather up some statistics from NHL.com (Goalies, players, teams)
  2. Create a little write-up - usually just rip off the one from the Jets site, and put a link to it after the write-up
  3. Change up some logos (I've got them setup in the PSD file so you just have to select/deselect team names, team logos, etc
  4. Change-up the rosters - dailyfaceoff.com is a good source for a reasonable guess at the opposing team's line-up for that game
  5. Track down a youtube video from the previous encounter
  6. Save out the slices from the PSD file as JPG images - you do this via "Save for Web", the select the slices you want to save out, give them a base name (I usually use gdt.jpg), and select "Save Selected Slices only". It then spits out N number of images titled gdt_01.jpg, gdt_02.jpg, etc. You do this, as the default image size that does NOT show a yellow "Expand Image" border is 350x300 pixels wide/high. Things look really messed up if you don't split the images like this (kudos to Hammer for instructions on how to set this up).
  7. Think up a silly title for the whole shebang
  8. Post
  9. ????
  10. Profit

Not difficult - just consumes a bit of time. With the template, I can crank one out in 30m to 1h. The new template is similar - just has some different graphics - got bored. One last note: you'll need some place to upload the graphics that you save out, to link into the GDT post.

YYZ, how do you set up your charts with various stats? That's one thing I haven't figured out yet.

I'll take the Minnesota game on the 23rd. Just a warning I'm not a creative person at all, and I doubt there would be any graphics except maybe a GIF or two. But I do have a smashing idea for a theme.

Magic!

If you go to the current GDT, you can see how the tables are setup. It's a bit of a pain, so I've developed a workflow for it:
  1. Grab stats from nhl.com
  2. Paste into Excel, or some other spreadsheet
  3. Clean stuff up
  4. Paste into a text editor, and replace all tabs with the character | (they define the cells in the table)
  5. Post
  6. ???
  7. Profit

Here's an example, pulled from the current GDT:

STARTING GOALIES
GoalieTeam GP GS WL OT SA GA GAA Sv Sv% SO G A PIM TOI
Ondrej PavelecWPG1313472399393.093600.9020000758:04:00
Jimmy HowardDET1111542305262.52790.9151000623:49:00

Note that the first line is important - you have to ensure that the header cells (Goalie | Team, etc) are on the same line as the table definition, or the table doesn't work correctly.

Here's the table in "code" so you can see it without quoting this post:


[SIZE=5][FONT=Impact][COLOR=#000]STARTING GOALIES[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[table="head;width=700"] Goalie|Team |GP |GS |W|L |OT |SA |GA |GAA |Sv |Sv% |SO |G |A |PIM |TOI
Ondrej Pavelec|WPG|13|13|4|7|2|399|39|3.09|360|0.902|0|0| 0|0|758:04:00
Jimmy Howard|DET|11|11|5|4|2|305|26|2.5|279|0.915|1|0|0| 0|623:49:00
[/table]


Hope that helps!

Awesome! Looking forward to it - the whole graphics thing is overblown. I love doing it, as I do it for a living, but good ideas are more important, IMHO! I've signed you up.

Remember guys, though it's intimidating to make a GDT seeing these amazing works of art that are being manufactured, people of any skill level are encouraged to sign up regardless. Don't feel like you have to aspire to some standard.

Hell some of our best GDT's are ones that aren't as polished, but were really entertaining just due to their theme. (MS Paint ones immediately come to mind)

So if you have been kicking around the idea of making a GDT, go for it! We will take it easy on ya! There are even templates to help you along.
