#2470280 Datsyuk vs. Zetterberg

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 02 January 2014 - 07:40 PM

I'm not smart enough to evaluate and determine who's the better player but I will say that I feel Z has carried the load a little more throughout their careers than Pav has (off the top of my head I can only think of one playoff series against the Sharks that Pav stood out more). I also feel that despite the hardware Pav has, the opposing team seems to get more pissed off going up against Z.

 

Perhaps Pav stands out more to most fans and TV personalities because of his flashiness and his elite takeaway ability, but you can't ignore the fact that Babcock most of the time seems to go to Z's line (when they're split up) to shut down the other teams top line, and also can't ignore that people like Gretzky and Crosby have claimed that they would pick Z #1 to build a hockey team around.

Another kid making a case to stay up with the big club!

That was my favorite game of the season so far. The crowd was amazing, non stop cheering and the team played with a lot of energy.

#2466088 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 18 December 2013 - 11:34 PM

Haven't heard really any problems with Xbox One yet, talked a friend into making a switch from Play Station to Xbox so he will be getting the Xbox One to raise some hell on Ghost. I more then likely will be getting it in no more then couple months. Couple things holding me back is I am wondering if you just take your Ghost for 360 and just swap it out for the Xbox One at Gamestop (where I got It). If I got to pay couple extra bucks for the game then so be it. My big thing though is that I went out like 4 months ago and bought the Turtle Beach Ear Force XL1. It was only $40 and I never had one before so I wanted to try it out. Can I just plug that into the Xbox One controller and use it still or do I have to go buy a brand new headset.

 

I don't own one yet but from what I read, you'll need an adapter to use the 3mm(?) jack for headsets because their new controllers have a new socket, which is probably patented. Now whether or not they supply the adapter with the system is something I don't know, but I'm assuming they will (and should).




#2466019 No Suspension for Quincey's Hit on Getzlaf

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 18 December 2013 - 05:05 PM

I didn't see any hitting whatsoever. Quincey engaged him, Getzlaf's skate caught a rut and awkwardly went into the boards. 9 times out of 10 that doesn't happen to Getzlaf, and he'd peel off him because he's bigger and stronger.

I made the same face Brick made after he killed a guy with a trident when I seen that hit on Getzlaf.

I did lol when Ozzie took a shot at Maltby after a Wings player missed a shot on goal.

Bishop's looked impressive.  Almost as impressive as that time I saw him running amok crushing buildings in Tokyo.

 

Sounds like something you'd hear in Family Guy. Probably is but I don't remember the episode.




#2463516 Weiss

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 11 December 2013 - 07:31 PM

I'm still holding out that something is wrong with Weiss physically/mentally because I just can't believe a player like him putting up 50+ for many seasons just suddenly comes to a screeching halt from a system change.

 

With that said, I'm not afraid to admit that I miss Filppula, but he's gone now. Trade for Lindholm.




#2460712 Fable 3 Free, Two Free Games Per Month

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 04 December 2013 - 07:01 PM

 World of Tanks should be emerging soon as the next free to play game as well.

 

Very fun game that works very well ported over to console. I believe the beta is still available for download with no specific release date for the final f2p product (could be wrong, haven't played in a week or two). I bought Skyrim off the steam autumn sale and am playing that now (I'm not sleeping very much now :P) but I'll probably come back to this game when they release more tank tree lines.
