#2437596 Jensen out till December/January after fight with Tyler Bertuzzi

Posted by rrasco on 19 September 2013 - 01:18 PM

If the Detroit Red Wings didn't want people to fight or chirp in camp, I'm willing to bet they would let the youngsters know.  It's part of the game and so are peculiar injuries.  "Oh well."

From reading here and on other sites, the Wings game last night was not available to all GCL subscribers.


Some people were able to watch it.

24CH is a groundbreaking new documentary series chronicling the on- and off-ice evolution of the 2012-13 Montreal Canadiens.



Sounds like a new version of Oil Change.

Getting completely outplayed and Tatar bangs one in


How fitting.  I wonder if Babs just 'likes him' still.

I'm sure they would all love Yzerman back on the team too.  Does it make sense though?

#2436344 Torts on Twitter: "most narcissistic thing I have ever seen"

I just use it to get news on days like this.  People 'report' tweets on forums, etc, but there is a lot that goes unseen.  WIIM is always good for a laugh.


And you wouldn't see cool stuff like this:

I thought these comments were pretty funny from Torts:


Brad Ziemer @BradZiemer 39m

Tortorella says he doesn't want his players on Twitter. Hates it #Canucks


Brad Ziemer @BradZiemer 25m

Tortorella: "I think it's the most narcissistic thing I have ever seen, Twitter" #Canucks


Brad Ziemer @BradZiemer 21m

More Torts on Twitter: "I am not going to handcuff them and treat them like little kids. . . #Canucks


Brad Ziemer @BradZiemer 19m

More Torts: "There better be no info come out of the locker-room with that damn Twitter." #Canucks

I'm happy if anything just to see the ungrateful Wings fans here implode.  :lol: Welcome back Danny Boy!  :clap:


You're oddly insane.

#2435800 NHL 14

Posted by rrasco on 11 September 2013 - 09:22 AM

I didn't realize it was coming out yesterday, but I picked it up on the way home from work for 360.  I think this version has a lot of physics improvements and the skating has really improved since last year.  NHL 13 everyone skated like Dan Cleary, it was annoying and almost too realistic in that regard.


When I started the game up it went through the normal settings: whats your favorite team, etc.  However, it also had different 'modes' I guess you could call them.  The options were High Impact, Simulation, and Hardcore Simulation.  If I understand these correctly, they alter the way the game is played.  High Impact focuses more on hits and arcade style games while sim and hardcore sim make it more like a simulator and realistic.  I chose hardcore sim.


I actually really like the way this version of the game so far.  I've only been buying them consistently for the last 6 years or so, and they usually add a thing or two: board battles, improved faceoffs, etc.  This year the game seems more refined than any of the previous I have played.


One thing to keep in mind, it actually makes more sense to develop a core engine and add to that every year fixing 'glitches' (which half of the time are high probability shots) so that way you are constantly improving on that engine.  If they start from the ground up, it will take 5-6 years for the game to be as refined as it is today.  No matter how you slice it, starting over is starting over.  It's like buying a first year car, it's bounds to have some quirks.

I've got an Isles jersey, but only b/c NHL.com had them for $12/ea last year.

Dare I ask how much for the Maltby?

#2432267 Nyquist Jersey

Posted by rrasco on 02 August 2013 - 02:13 PM

At least it has the patch.  I wonder if everywhere caught up, they were trying to get them about the time I ordered my Dats jersey.  Mine doesn't have one.

I wouldn't have guessed that was Pavel.  Pavel is the man who has no bounds.

#2431492 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by rrasco on 25 July 2013 - 07:00 PM

It would most likely be Tatar. For whatever reason he seemed to fall out of favor with babs and Holland last season


I honestly think they decided last year was a transition year and to try them out which is exactly what they did.  Unexpectedly made the playoffs and put up a decent run but left Tatar down because he was there when the Griffins went on their run.  Not to mention he was the MVP and potted 16 goals.

I have to say, I believe that more often than not, good things happened when Tootoo was on the ice.  He had one hell of a finish to the season IMO.
