#2531747 Hidden Logos

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 July 2014 - 03:38 AM

Surprised there was no inclusion of the Minnesota Wild logo, it's both a nature scene with trees and a river, and the head of a bear.

 

Cool share, I haven't seen/noticed a few of these.




#2531405 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 July 2014 - 10:06 PM

Yeah I just added 8 games this week due to the "Ultimate Summer Sale", including Forza Horizon, Payday 2, Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare, Halo: Spartan Assault, and a few others. The backlog seems to grow more than it shrinks.




#2530277 Please Help Me Win GDT of the year.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 July 2014 - 04:35 PM

Any HFBoards users out there, please support Flashy here and get your vote in. He puts in countless hours into GDTs not only there, but here on LGW also. This is an opportunity for us to give back to someone who dedicates a lot of time and effort for free just for our entertainment.

 

Let's bring him to the final and get him the recognition he deserves.




#2530109 Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 July 2014 - 01:07 PM

Last season, Buff scored 56 points in 78 games, 256 shots, 213 hits and 80 blocked shots. For someone that plays that physical, still managed under 100 PIM. 

 

Just saying, heavy point shot PP guy that rips it on net a LOT, will take the body and put up points like a top 6 forward, i'll take him in a second. Sounds like he has a lot of attributes we were severely lacking last season, especially in playoffs.




#2529241 Can Z and Pav do anything to protest? (not that they would)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 July 2014 - 11:07 PM

A fan perspective and a player perspective are two entirely different things. Who knows what the feeling is in the locker room, how Pav and Zett feel about the current condition and standing of the team. 

 

We are on the outside watching, they are the ones playing the game. Considering the respect levels, the commitment by both players, no. I don't see a thing coming from either player as an effort of protest because the first day of free agent signing didn't go our way. The offers were put in place, some guys took less to play elsewhere. I'm not sure what good it would do to have our most valued players start turning against the organization instead of trying to make the best of a bad situation and win games as they are paid to do.




#2522454 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 June 2014 - 03:11 AM

LA overcame a 3-0 deficit, and knocked out the powerhouse Blackhawks to get here. The Rangers had to battle through Dustin Tokarski to get to the cup final. I firmly believe that it's a LA/Montreal cup final is Price is healthy for that series.

 

LA wins in 5. They have already climbed over the two largest obstacles they are going to face in this years playoffs. 




#2521840 J-S Giguere to announce retirement

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 27 May 2014 - 01:54 AM

I'm not a fan, was never a fan. That usually means they did something to significantly damage us with their skill in the past. Glad to see you go Giguere, but at the same time, part of me was glad to witness parts of your career. 




#2521648 Mantha named CHL player of the year

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 24 May 2014 - 05:25 PM

Great accomplishment, here's hoping for a bright future wearing the winged wheel.




#2521221 So we've got a pretty good system...

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 19 May 2014 - 09:11 PM

I'm not sure how I feel about Sheahan being top 5 and Sproul nowhere on the list. 

 

Still, this previous season proved just how much talent we have waiting to emerge, a lot of these guys we wouldn't have even seen had it not been for chronic injuries. 

 

The future is bright, I hope it comes sooner than later.




#2520507 A cap/salary question for you all.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 14 May 2014 - 09:49 PM

Oh the joys of the offseason at LGW.

 

No way do I ever see locking up any player at that cap hit a good idea unless he is the literal second coming of Wayne Gretzky and provides the offense of 3 top line players combined scoring over 200 points per season. Who knows what happens when players figure out how to defend against him better, and if he is selfish enough to command maximum contract he is likely the same class of player who will drop off in production after getting that contract. Look at the quality of player we get out of Datsyuk for the price, pay nearly double? No thanks.




#2520150 Spezza?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 May 2014 - 03:28 PM

Please be aware of the subject manner of what you are posting and where it belongs on the forums. Trade rumors, speculations, discussion about players that may be traded or anything involving potential transactions belongs in the "Trade Rumor & Free Agent Talk" section of the forums. We have been moving a lot of posts lately and with offseason upcoming the rumors will continue to build and emerge, we want to keep the boards as organized and tight as possible. Thanks.

As per the thread topic, congrats to Abs. I know it's offseason but let's not stray too far off course here ladies and gents. 




#2519894 3 Words To Describe This Organization...

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 May 2014 - 05:36 PM

Howard's Heart = Above Average




#2519637 So what do we have to trade?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 07 May 2014 - 03:47 PM

Ship off Howard, bring in Miller, give it 40 games next season before the "Miller = Average" thread goes up. He's aging, he isn't what he used to be. He wasn't that good in the playoffs this year, his numbers leave something to be desired. He'd come here, play about on par, maybe slightly better than Howard, but people will realize how much more of an impact the defense makes (if it is not much improved) over the quality of the goaltender. I think a lot of people cling onto how he was 5 years ago, the kind of goalie he was in the Olympics, the NHL superstar goalie, that isn't the Miller we'd be overpaying for and i'd rather see the money go into a better defenseman over a very mild upgrade over Howard for a much bigger contract.

 

It's honestly just my opinion, i've been wrong before, we all have at one point, but I think the focus is solely defense first and maybe one quality winger.




#2519396 NHL 15 Getting New Commentators: Doc and Edzo *sigh

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 May 2014 - 11:31 AM

How difficult would it be to get each team's actual announcers on the game? Genuinely curious? Is that even possible?

would love to have Ken and Mick on a game.

I remember reading somewhere that EA stated doing the commentary is the most difficult and expensive aspect of developing a sports title, that's why it's been Gary and Bill for the last 7 years or so unchanged.

 

I for one support this entirely and i'm pretty excited about the change. I am a GM for a League Gaming team and play at least 1,500 online games per year, I compete in organized OTP leagues so I definitely overplay the series. Hearing the same commentary for the last 7 years has pretty much forced me to turn it off in the options menu entirely. While i'm not thrilled about Eddie being here, the rest don't much bother me and it's a much needed change.
