Exactly. It's similar to what's going on with the Gophers football team (although not as bad) after firing Brewster and hiring Kill. It takes time implement a system and it's not other situations where the pieces were in place for this year.

So as far as I can tell, First Round Bust's 1 year anniversary is today. Not bad for a co-op project!

Note to self, check if domain needs to be renewed. We're good; we didn't move to .com until February.

Two things:
1. The forum sort of skipped over this for the most part but yesterday was the seventh anniversary of Sergei Zholtok's Death. Always important to remember things like that and Dan wrote a very good piece on it.

2. First Round Bust has a Twitter account @FRBHockey for prospect updates and other Wild-related shenanigans.

Resurrecting this thread from the grave to mention that I did some long-overdue design changes. Pretty happy with the new look, but it's not quite perfect, so please, by all means, give me some critiques, because at this point I've been staring at it so long I can't really tell what's bugging me about it.

Also, I had to make a new, wider banner, but it's pretty rubbish, so if anyone has any ideas––or better yet, drive to make a new one––please, please, I would love you forever. Dimensions are 1000x138, color scheme used so far is #005931, #bf2f38, #fcc200, and #eee3c6.

I like the changes overall. Though, I'm not a big fan of the new "headline" font for each individual write-up. A little distracting/hard to read/I may be a little weird...

I agree with TP, I don't care for the headline font at all.

Thanks for the input on the font. I wanted to try out Web Fonts, and I was trying to emulate some of the Wild's more recent promotions like this:



But with our tendencies to use rather lengthy headlines, it's a bit too much text to use such a display-oriented font. I'll look for a new one later today.

Aaand good call. Much, much cleaner and more legible this way. One of those things you just start to see through the more you stare at it, so thanks again for pointing that out.

Still need to figure out what the **** to do with the banner though.

can you add a JP23 logo next to the Jabby one too?



Maybe you can alter this...

- FRB instead of NHL in the Crest
- BUST instead of DRAFT
- and maybe something pithy instead of Minnesota 2011

I didn't mean to be insensitive to her situation, but I looked around, and it didn't seem like the Privette family had created a page like the Jablonskis had. There wasn't much I could do without an official patch like Jabs had or a destination for the link to go to.

Hey guys, whenever you need to use a article in finnish, translated and want better quality than google translate you can always PM me, especially now that Granlund watch is at its hottest whenever you run into something you want translated just PM me. Half my time at work is spent on surfing, so I'll probably notice PM right away, and when I'm at home I always have HFboards and Gmail tab open so I'll probably notice right away.

... And in case he is not online, you can just PM me instead. I'm usually available when it's night in Europe.
