#2664617 What Are You Playing?

Posted by F.Michael on 05 April 2016 - 08:01 PM

I feel like buying a laptop specifically for gaming is a waste of money, you can get a beast desktop pc for that and get way better hardware. I hook my laptop to my tv screen and use a mouse and keyboard, I love the fact I can take it anywhere and play, I Still need a wired 360 controller to play some steam games.

Well - it all depends upon your situation...I use my laptop for everyday use outside of playing WoW.

 

As I mentioned earlier - my living space really doesn't allow for a dedicated desk top, and I'd rather have the option of taking my laptop with me to work - so yeah - I'll gladly pay for the convenience of a laptop.

I've talked to a couple people who suggest that site. I have no idea what I am doing ha.

I will be for sure!

Living in a condo with 3 lil'dudes it's tough to have a desktop (limited space, and not wanting them to occupy it all day) so I went with a good quality laptop that'll also accompany me when I work 3rd shift every weekend (if it's quiet I can play some WoW).

 

I know most frown upon using a laptop - however I cannot imagine not having one.

 

If ya need any advice on a laptop - just let me know - even though I'm no expert, but I feel I know enough that I can give my dos pesos.

Most fans could run the Flyers better than what they have been. Although Hextal does seem to be turning the corner with that team. Same is true with the Islanders.


I enjoy a good hockey fight as much as anyone. But I would rather have some Dmen that can clear out the crease and make the oher teams fowards pay when they go behind our net and in the corners. Same is true on the other end. Forwards that try to hit the other teams D behind the net and take up space in front of their net. Those are the types of things that win playoff series and Cups. Which is the goal after all. Or is it?

To be honest I'd say a good portion of guys who make their living in the NHL with their physical play also engage in fisticuffs from time to time...It's these guys that I'd like to have on the roster.

If GM's ran their clubs doing what the fans would want, this entire league would be like the Philadelphia Flyers.

Agreed.

 

A significant portion of the fan base likes the combination of skill/physical play...And part of that physical play would include a handful of guys on the roster who are capable, and willing to drop the gloves.

Jesus Christ I understand being frustrated but it's like some of you have never been a fan of a losing team. I know some of y'all are young but *damn*.

"I hate this team"

"I'm not watching the playoffs if we make it"

O...k? Don't? Like rage quitting isn't going to change the sitch, guys. If you don't want to watch, then don't watch. The bottom always falls out eventually, even if it takes 20-some odd years for it to happen. That's life as a sports fan. If you don't want to root for a losing team or a team in transition, then don't. But not everyone has one leg over the side of the bandwagon. Some of us remember what it was *really* like to suck, and I don't think we're anywhere close to that.

Been a fan since '84.

 

At least the Wings teams back then that didn't make the playoffs showed some heart, and were entertaining.

this game sums up nicely how we've played this year:

 

brief moments of greatness

 

followed by

 

long stretches of disastrous ineptitude

This right here boys, and girls.

 

And cue the dumbfounded look on Blashill's face as the opponents tie the game, and score what becomes the winning goal shortly thereafter.

I just realized the issue...We need a coaching staff with hair.

How could anyone not be angry watching this....? :evil: Those games they "should've won" earlier in the season are really starting to matter now...

Hey now!

 

If Ken Holland likes this team.....Then so do I!

Once again - I must admit that I was wrong on Mantha not looking the part in the NHL.

 

I stand corrected.

No thanks on Yakupov. We already have too many small, skilled, euros, and he's not better than most of them (except maybe Pulkkinen).

I'd rather see time, and $$$ spent trying to sign Lucic.

You sound like a gnome talking about gnomeregan. 

You're a meany Trogg.

No one cares, no emotions, no fights

Like I said in another post...I wanna see guys drafted that possess a spine, some character, size, and a willingness to use that size...Too many soft 5 feet nothings on this team that just bend over, and take it.

Is it me, or is this the 1st time in years that the Wings won't play on Easter Sunday?

It's the stupid video review guys that advise him.  

Tell those guys to stop drinking Molsons...
