#2530904 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 09 July 2014 - 07:15 PM

I still have such an insane backlog of games to play right now I think i'll hold off until fall at the earliest at this point. Don't laugh, but I have about 35 games that I own on 360 between arcade and retail that I have never even touched and want to finish before even thinking about moving on. Some of them are project games also, not just small quick playthroughs. 

 

The only thing that might draw me in sooner is Titanfall on One.

 

You should see my Steam library... :blushing: I curse you, Steam Summer Sale!




#2531072 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Is it too early to nominate players for the Masterton Trophy?




#2530273 Please Help Me Win GDT of the year.

Posted by wings87 on 06 July 2014 - 03:50 PM

Unfortunately once its activated you need to have 45 posts and 45 days of membership before you can vote in polls.

Geez, who runs half boards? Hydra? I guess instead of a vote I'll send out good wishes.


#2530250 Please Help Me Win GDT of the year.

Posted by FlashyG on 06 July 2014 - 01:41 PM

Right now I'm currently locked in a very tight back and forth Battle with the Philadelphia Flyers in the semi-finals of the competition.

 

I need help getting votes to move on to meet the Sharks in the finals.

 

Not only is their GDT a wall of text they have been quite disrespectful towards my work. 

 

You need to have an HFboards account already to vote, but if you have one please follow the link cast your vote

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Why not ask her?


#2529791 Forum Rules Refresher. PLEASE READ

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 03 July 2014 - 02:17 PM

Since it's the offseason and also because of what's been going on since the free agent signings, it's a good time to remind everyone of some of the forum rules. 

 

I've posted a few warnings in threads but wanted to put a reminder where everyone will see it.

 

 

From the forum rules:

 

· DO post a link reference (or cite the TV/radio source) when reporting breaking news, reports, etc. Threads started without this information may be deleted or moved.

 

When posting a trade or signing, please provide a link to a reputable source as confirmation. This time of year people often make fake twitter accounts so make sure the tweet you're linking to is a verified account from a reputable source.

 

 

· DO post constructively. If you can't add anything meaningful to a discussion, don't bother.

 

Before hitting reply, just take a second to think about what impact your post will have on the discussion.  Is it making it better or worse?

 

 

· DON'T post duplicate topics. Before posting your new thread be sure to check the first two pages of the forum to make sure the topic isn't already being discussed. Multiple violations of this rule by a single member is punishable by temporary suspension from the forums.

 

 

· DON'T post false and/or misleading topics. Members caught doing so will be banned IMMEDIATELY with NO chance of reinstatement.

 

The punishment may seem severe but if people start posting fake trade threads, the forum becomes total chaos.  LGW should be a resource for solid hockey talk and information.  

 

 

· DO refrain from using vulgar language. There is a curse/bad word filter currently on the forum and members that purposely attempt to circumvent this filter will be subject to a suspension of account privileges.

 

No alternate spellings.  No blanking some of the letters.  Let the profanity filter do its job.

 

 

· DON'T personally attack other members. This includes name-calling, flame-baiting, etc.. If you can't discuss your point with maturity then don't discuss it. People that violate this rule will be dealt with swiftly.

 

In short, debate the content of someone's argument, not the person themselves.  

 

This includes broad insults against people on this forum and their level of fandom.  Like it or not, complaining about the Red Wings can be on topic.  If you don't like it, don't read it.  If they've clearly violated forum rules, report it to bring it to a moderators attention.  If you really don't like anything a person here has to say, you can put that member on your ignore list.

 

 

 

As I've said before, this forum relies entirely on content generated from its members.  You are all the authors of this forum, so it will only be as good or bad as you make it.  The ultimate goal of all of these rules is not to punish people, but to make LGW a source of lively, respectful, informed discussion. 

 

Thanks!

#2529243 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

The Red Wings have turned into the ugly cousin at a wedding that no one wants to sleep with.


#2527600 NHL Trivia: 1990's Top Scorers

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 01 July 2014 - 09:56 AM

39/50...

 

Only two I missed on the left column were #2 and #23. I too was pretty surprised by who it was, not even sure why the name didn't come to mind at all.

I got 32 I think. And managed to get the elusive #2!! Disappointed I didn't get more, but then I did only start watching hockey when I was 12 in about 1999….




#2527270 UFA day looking up

Posted by e_prime on 30 June 2014 - 03:43 PM

So as to not be too disappointed, I'm going to say that I'd be happy with Ehrhoff and Radim Vrbata.  I wouldn't be thrilled, but I could live with it. 

 

Chances are that's asking too much as well. 

 

We'll get Boyle and Alfie.  I don't know why I bother pretending otherwise. 

George Malik @georgemalik 21m

.@Mjurgh I call July 1st the "great disappointment" because even if KH signed everybody, Wings fans would still be upset.




#2524891 Joe Thornton to the Wings?

Posted by frankgrimes on 20 June 2014 - 03:39 PM

Paul Statsny - -the man with the difficult name -- would be available for nothing but cash, he is also younger so I would prefer him. Giving Jurco for Thornton would be a huge mistake.

 

Also keep in mind the guy has a no movement clause and I highly doubt he would waive it for another team entering the twilight and soon rebuildtime.

Apparently the people running the Wings twitter page are just as bored waiting for the draft/free agency as we are...


#2524963 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 20 June 2014 - 09:55 PM

I think the mods took a vacation from the site, because there's a full on recruiting pitch for the hare Krishna in the minor and pro league affiliate forum, and its been there for a full day now.

 

Someone could've reported it so it would be brought to a mods attention. 

 

We don't see every single post in every forum, especially in the offseason.  Reports help us clean up things like that quicker.

 

 

 

I don't know that the thread needs to be pinned.  The activity should keep it near the top if there's anything going on. 




#2521770 State your unpopular opinion

Chocolate ice cream is terrible.


#2468447 State your unpopular opinion

Posted by 55fan on 30 December 2013 - 12:20 PM

Someone insulting someone else is not "shocking" nor is it news.  It's been going on since the dawn of time. 

 

If someone says something stupid, don't rush to blog about it.  Deal with it like an adult. 

 

Did they call your daughter a fat cow?  Call your son a limp-wristed nancy-boy?  Deal with it, and if you're the parent, help your kid deal with it.

 

Was what they said true? 

No?  Teach your kid to ignore it (or give a smart-ass comment, if the kid is old and smart enough). 

Yes?  Tell your kid that they'll either have to accept who they are even if others don't or change who they are.  The choice is theirs.

 

People will be mean jerks.  People will say stupid things.  It's not news.  And after all these years in the history of the world, it's not "shocking".
