#2001685 Red Dead Redemption

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 20 June 2010 - 02:30 PM

Anybody want to buy my copy? It's in perfect condition, I'm just bored with it already.

Don't blame ya. I sold it back the day after I beat it. Fun game. But absolutely zero challenge in beating it. Hopefully the next red dead game will be the same type of game play, just with more of a challenge. Gamestop gave me 28 bucks store credit. Thats probably the most you're gonna get for it at this point.

#2001433 Another Preds trade: Arnott to NJ

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 19 June 2010 - 02:55 PM

Definitely sounds like New Jersey wants some insurance in case they can't re-sign Kovalchuk. Not that Arnott is near Kovalchuk's level, but still, definitely helps add depth and gives them a guy with leadership, a physical presence, and someone who can win crucial faceoffs. I like this move for the devils. But like I said, he is certainly no Kovy.

#1994883 Red Dead Redemption

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 June 2010 - 03:09 PM

RDR is a great game. But I definitely wouldn't say it's rockstar's best game ever. I don't have much beef with the game. But the one beef I do have is a big one for me. The game is extremely easy to beat. No challenge at all on any mission. In fact, It was so easy that I stopped using "dead eye" about halfway into the game. And even without using any dead eye for the rest of the game, it was still very easy to beat. Whereas rockstar's GTA series was always a challenge at one point or another. Still, I would recommend RDR to anyone. I just think that overall GTA is the better series of rockstar games.

#1992522 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 01 June 2010 - 02:22 PM

I'm definitely happy that Lidstrom is coming back for another year. But I really thought he would take a much bigger pay cut. He's still an above average defenseman. But his production last season doesn't seam to warrant a 6.5 mill deal. I was thinking more like 5 mill. Hopefully he will play lights out all year.

#1991796 Improving by upgrading Todd Bertuzzi

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 31 May 2010 - 01:43 PM

I heard a few months ago that Todd will be willing to take a pay cut to stay with the Wings. So if thats the case, then I say we must keep him. Especially in this post cap era. Getting a decent player for dirt cheap is a must if we have the opportunity. And from what I hear, we have that opportunity with Bert.

#1989539 Steve Yzerman named TB's new GM

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 25 May 2010 - 01:42 PM

Wow... I mean I'm happy for Steve and everything, but I really thought he would be a Red Wing for life. For me, this is devastating news... Stevie should be our GM, or atleast our assistant GM. Man this blows...

#1982026 Who do you cheer for now?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 09 May 2010 - 11:28 AM

Well, I hate Pittsburgh and Chicago. So originally I was going to root on the Sharks if we were to get eliminated by them. But after seeing the refs quite literally hand the Sharks the series, I will now root against them the rest of the way. So I suppose for me, best case scenario would be either Boston, Philly, or Vancouver to win the cup. Unfortunately that doesn't seam likely. But that's what I'll be rooting for the rest of the way.

#1939359 The Official MMA Thread

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 13 April 2010 - 05:46 AM

Did anyone see UFC 112??? What the hell was Silva doing??? I'm really starting to get annoyed by his antics in the ring. It was bad enough when he was mocking his opponent and literally dancing while he was fighting. But then he basically ran in circles for over a round. Can't wait for GSP to light this fool up.

#1938375 Songs that make you laugh

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 12 April 2010 - 06:01 AM

Hail to the "Victors"...

What's funny about that? Despite Rich Rod's horrible first 2 years, Michigan is still has by far the highest winning percentage in college football history. And also, still owns Ohio State in the all time head to head record. OSU has had a good last 6 years against them, but even counting recent history of the past 30 years Michigan still owns OSU. So yeah, don't really see the humor in their fight song. Oh and btw, I went to Michigan State, so it's not like im hyping my home school or something. Get a clue buddy.

This next song also used to crack me up back in the day. And it definitely still does:


#1932662 Should the Wings part ways with Osgood?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 April 2010 - 09:57 AM

And this is a forum to express points and opinions. You can do that in whichever thread you want related to the topic at hand as long as you aren't personally attacking somebody and doing it within the forum rules, bro. Including this one.

My original point was the fact that there are several Osgood related threads. So I didn't want this thread to turn into yet another one. And no you can't discuss and make comments in any thread you want. I have the option to lock out comments and turn the thread into a poll only. But just in case people had any questions I decided to leave it open. I tried to make it clear that this was a poll only. Might wanna lose that attitude though buddy. I was saying bro in a lighthearted way, not a cocky dickhead way. If you wanna keep making this thread an Osgood debate thread I will lock the comment option. I just wanted to see how the numbers broke down in terms of who still wants Ozzie and who doesn't. Simple as that.

The big reason I hope we move on from Osgood is the hope that we'll get a solid reliable backup for Jimmy. Think about it, if Jimmy got hurt tomorrow and was out for 4-6 months, chances are we would be in big big trouble. So hopefully next season we'll have a capable consistent backup that would be able to come in if the worst happens to Howard, and we can all still feel confident about our team's chances. Howard's durability right now could literally make or break our chances of bringing home Lord Stanley's Cup. I pray that he stays healthy for the rest of the season and post season.

Anything has to be better than that horrible Blackhawks song featured in NHL 10. SOOOO annoying!

#1913559 How many players from Team USA would have made Team Canada?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 11 March 2010 - 12:36 AM

Nobody likes basketball anyways. Can we agree on that???

No we can't. I happen to have a strong passion for Hockey, Baseball, Football and Basketball. Always have, always will. I'm like a junkie when it comes to the 4 major pro sports. lol
