Detroit Red Wings/Minnesota Wild 2017-18; Dual Season Report

Decided to start a dual season with human control of both a Western and Eastern Conference team. I think it will be interesting to have a team I can compare myself too throughout the season and that it will help keep the season fresh. The plan is to play at least one game with each team a night. I'll be posting updates every 10 regular season games and will have full game write ups for playoffs like I did with my NYR season.

I picked Detroit because I wasn't super familiar with their roster outside of the big names, and thought it would be fun to play as a more underdog team. Also a big fan of their jerseys.

Minnesota I know better, I like watching them play a bit despite being a St. Louis rival in recent years. I'm a big fan of Mikael Granlund ever since a Finnish buddy of mine pointed him out to me. Thought the green will be a nice contrast with the Red too, and the team has a chance to be a good contender if I make playoffs.

Got the 2017-18 jerseys Jimbo made successfully installed for this season, as well as switching to the 1.5 launcher. I've changed power-plays to 1 minute real time increments and have set the AI back to Trent's defaults resulting in more powerplays. So far I've had much higher scoring than last year, which I prefer.

The plan for when the teams meet up is to always play as the Home team. This would include the Stanley Cup Finals if by some miracle they both make it. Best part of this season will be having two lives!

Excellent. :Good:

You can get the individual game boxscores from the \NHL 2004\STATS folder and share them as well.

Traditional dohtml might not work though. Hmm...

Detroit Games 21-30

15-10-5 (Last Ten: 4-4-2)

-Detroit clings on to a playoff spot

-Zetterberg now leads in points alongside a declining Nielson. They each have 15.

-The team fell in a disheartening 6-5 OTL to the Islanders.

-Zetterberg suffered a disc injury in Philadelphia and will be out for 6 weeks. Bad news for a team that is struggling to score.

-Mrazek and Howard are splitting most starts now.

Hey Mr. DewWeasel, I think you've got something terribly wrong in your settings. The Blues are at the bottom of the West, so its obvious something is out of wack ...... :hockey1:

I'm hoping the Wild will start losing a little more. Dubnyk is getting far too many shutouts and making saves that should be goals. May have to tamper settings if this keeps up
