This sums up my opinion of our 5 on 3 powerplay:

Also sums up Abdelkader's hands on that play :(

Please sit Miller so Tatar can play.

This x1000, Tatar has been more visible on the ice in his 2 games than Miller has been all season.

#2075846 Retire Osgood's #30?

Posted by McAwesome on 11 December 2010 - 12:00 AM

Hall of Fame for Osgood? I say yes, especially if he breaks the 400 win plateau. You don't win 3 Cups and 400 games by just being a "system" goalie, he earned everything he has achieved.

Retire his number? That's debatable, and because it is debatable it should not happen. Lidstrom's #5 will definitely be retired, and that will be the last one for a very long time, unless the Ilitches decide to finally raise #6 like they should have done a long time ago.

Two things I hope happen in this game:

1) Wings play a full 60 minutes

2) Hudler is benched in favor of any other forward that will actually make an effort out there

Not saying I hate Hudler, I just think it is wrong for him not to be in the rotation of healthy scratches. If anything, Eaves should be full-time and the rotation should be Hudler, Miller, Draper.

@jmad, sorry I didn't get your PM until today for some reason.

Per my previous post on the 13th, I have escalated all of the issues mentioned in this thread to our software department, but I have not heard any response back yet. Once I have more info to go on, I will post it in here.

#2042838 Pavel Datsyuk has a Gordie Howe Hattrick

All I could think about while watching that fight is this:
Mainly because of the resemblance between Fairy and Farkus, they could be brothers.

Don't be a homer now. :lol:

He didn't exactly kick Perry's ass.

Let's face it, anything less than a lopsided beatdown by Perry has to be considered an upset in this matchup, I'm sure that is what the Fairy was expecting to happen. Good on Pavel for not only standing his ground, but actually displaying some decent fighting technique.

Let's spoil their banner ceremony and show their bandwagon fans what a true champion looks like.

McAwesome- I subscribed a couple weeks ago, but I was wondering why, when you have scores selected to "OFF", they would put "FINAL SO" or "FINAL OT" on the menu? Kind makes the rest of the game pointless, ehh?

This will be addressed with the next batch of updates, probably early next week.

GCL was a lot smoother tonight compared to last night.

In the new GCL interface when I click Vault it leads me to a page that wants me to sign up for $4.95 a month. Isn't the Vault included in the GCL subscription?

Vault is included, in the top right-hand corner of the signup page for Vault there will be a link, it will either say "Already Registered? Sign In" or "Go to NHL GameCenter Livetm" which if you click will either take you to the login (which will look like last year's GameCenter Live login) or to the Launch page.

It still says GameCenter Live on the pages and in the URLs for Vault, that will also be addressed during the next batch of updates.

looked pretty good on my end. tho when i maximized it and made it full screen the sound was going all f***ed up and it was getting really choppy.

my monitors 25". but when its a little smaller then fullscreen it runs nice and smooth, pretty clear.

Try changing a setting in Flash, right-click on the video and select Settings, then uncheck Enable Hardware Acceleration, this usually clears up any choppiness at full screen.

The URL is different this year, it is now gamecenterlive.nhl.com, whereas last year was gamecenter.nhl.com which is now the Vault for classic games and past season's archives.

Just got this response from GCL customer service. Seems auto-generated to me.

Not exactly October 7th.

We use predetermined replies to answer commonly asked questions, it is almost universal among support.

As for the issue at hand, our (Neulion) original plan was to submit the app to Sony Computer Entertainment Inc for final approval and release today, but the PS3 app we developed has not been approved by SCEI, and the re-submittal process could take as long as 6 weeks, so that is why the reply said what it did.

Sorry :unhappy:

So I purchased it finally! I'm excited to watch all games. However, is there any new info on the PS3 app for it yet?

No new info, still scheduled to be released in the PSN store on October 7th.

Also, when do the auto-renew charges go through?

Check your notification email, the billing will take place in 3 batches, on the 4th, 5th, or 6th, the date and amount of your billing will be in the email you received last week.

Any more information about the PS3 streaming?

The only reason I haven't re-upped for this year is I want to take advantage of the massive TV I bought in the off season instead of watching it on my computer monitors.

We actually haven't had a chance to look at the PS3 app yet, so I can't give many specifics, but the way it is supposed to work is you will download the app from the PSN store (they will charge you $10 for it) and once you have downloaded the app you will have to register it, there will be a validation code that you enter through the app to link it to your Gamecenter account for the computer, then you will be able to stream live games through your console directly to your TV, and since the video hardware on the PS3 is far superior to any media center PC, you should have a much better picture through the PS3 than you will by hooking your computer up to your big screen.

We should be getting a production app and a console to test it on early next week, so I will post more details in this thread then. Also, for those of you that have the Roku box for Netflix, there will be an app for your box that will do the same thing.

I've also being tossing up whether I should get Gamecenter for this season too and I think you may have just sold me with the PS3 feature. What software do you need to stream it to a PS3 though? Through the media server thing or?

The only software you will need is the app itself, and of course a Gamecenter account for the computer. Another bonus of the PS3 app is that you can actually be signed in on a computer and also be streaming through the PS3 at the same time, whereas if you try to sign on to more than one computer at a time it will boot one computer off.
