#2427574 Filppula to Tampa 5 yr $5 million

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 July 2013 - 05:22 PM

Somewhere Loo is in her pajamas with a tub of ice cream watching chick flicks drowning her sorrows. 

 

Wish he was a bit more reasonable with his asking price, hope for years of success in Tampa and don't disappoint Mr. Yzerman now mister.




#2427329 is anyone happy right now?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 July 2013 - 03:09 PM

I think the OP was stuck in the mindset that anything outside of a tremendous trade would make this team worse as it's a theory he had brought up in other threads and now it's an effort to gain further justification even though this team improved today. Face the facts that Filppula wanted a contract based off of the one good season he did have even though he proved the following year that he could not remain consistent and was not any kind of force in the playoffs. It was an intelligent decision to let him walk which is a positive. 

 

We'll let this upcoming season speak for itself, we made the playoffs by winning the final regular season game this year, so if we miss playoffs this upcoming season then sure, the moves today damaged this team. When we do make the playoffs though, which we will, maybe a choice few that post here can step back a bit and realize maybe, just maybe, Kenny Holland knows what he's doing and made the right decisions today.

 

So to answer the question, yeah i'm pretty content with what went down today. Losing Brunner hurts, losing Flip not so much, but gaining Alf and Weiss is definitely a positive in my opinion. And the offseason isn't over yet either who knows what else is in store.




#2426219 Xbox One and PS4

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 04 July 2013 - 10:46 PM

I have bought consoles since the release of Nintendo and never ever would I use Internet on them to me they are just: insert game - start and play with friends in the same room. Microsoft xbl service is just a rip off and a way for them to spy out your data.

While I do play a lot of single player games, you are missing out on a tremendous aspect of current generation gaming if you are refusing to play nothing online. I was in the military for 4 years, when I initially got an Xbox Gold account it was a way for me to stay in touch with my family and friends and link up to play games with them to get my mind off of all the excessive travel I was doing. It didn't matter where I was in the US I could sit down and play games with my brother.

 

So no, the service isn't a rip off in the slightest unless you feel the same way about paying for an internet connection in general which guess what, monitors or "spies" on your activity while you use the service they provide for you and you pay for. The current Games with Gold program gives us 2 free games a month through the rest of this year, so in that respect alone $20 worth of free games for the next six months adds up to a lot more than $60 for the year of service.

 

With all that said I am also an old school gamer, I owned an atari/colecovision, a NES and a ton between then and now but i've adapted and evolved with gaming as it's progressed over the years and not limited myself. Some do, and that's fine, but can't really call a service a "rip off" that you personally never even used or attempted to use, that's just blind hatred. 




#2426027 Xbox One and PS4

Yeah there really is no comparing the online play and stability between Xbox live and PS Network, but you get what you pay for. Xbox live rarely drops, the online play is always smooth as long as your personal connection is fine, and it's features including party chat and what not puts it leaps ahead of PS Network. I remember a couple years ago when Sony was hacked and PS Net was down for over a month. I'd assume next generation will be the same as Microsoft has a ton more experience with online gaming and is providing so many servers to their users. 

 

I've been an Xbox live gold member for 9 years now, 7 on my current gamertag and 2 on the original Xbox and will most likely remain so because overall the service has been excellent. I know a lot are opposed to paying to play online annually, but it's like when Netzero used to exist. Sure you can get free internet but if you want something stable and reliable that isn't going to crash and freeze on you then pay out a little bit and get so much more.




#2425103 Red Wings won't pursue David Clarkson

Smart move on passing. Say it with me. NOT. WORTH. SIX. MILLION. 




#2424902 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Cue the "Holland dropped the ball on Lecavalier" threads. 




#2422827 What Are You Playing?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 27 June 2013 - 04:54 PM

Red Dead was a brilliant game, I reached 100% complete in the main campaign and the Undead Nightmare expansion so if you need assistance anywhere just ask. Easily one of my all-time favorite gaming experiences.

They will all be Islanders.




#2421265 Tortorella offered coaching job in Vancouver

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 21 June 2013 - 07:04 PM

I guess the Sedins will combine for 90 points by the end of the season instead of putting up 90 each. 

 

Torts in Vancouver is an awful fit, i'd anticipate them to finish the season with at least 15-20 points less than they have been and still choke out in the first or second round. This just makes no sense at all, he is not the solution to grant the Nucks more success and bring them further into the playoffs.

 

Bad move Vancouver, riots will ensue. 




#2421157 NHL considering ban on spin-o-rama in shootout..

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 21 June 2013 - 03:27 AM

This is ridiculous. Just eliminate the shootout, make it 10 minute 4 vs 4 overtime and bring back the tie. No points for going into overtime and losing. STOP REWARDING TEAMS WITH A POINT FOR LOSING!

 

And STILL, and this really bothers me, we have an icing rule that causes injuries and it remains so. Get your priorities straight NHL, Ban the spin-o-rama, I mean seriously?




#2421085 Avs passing on Jones?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 20 June 2013 - 05:24 PM

Sakic LIES! Never trust a former mid 90's avalanche player.




#2420120 Wings interested in Weiss

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 15 June 2013 - 10:20 PM

I'll take Stalberg and Weiss thanks.




#2416300 Wow... Danny Cleary

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 30 May 2013 - 05:44 PM

And he still managed 10 points in 14 games. 




#2415921 The ugly elephant in the room

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 29 May 2013 - 11:54 PM

As far as i'm concerned the playoffs ended tonight and it's officially baseball season. That's about how much I care about the remaining 4 teams competing for the cup. I don't care who wins because all have taken it recently and don't necessarily like any of them all that much. Kings/Bruins is the lesser of two evils but my give-a-damner is floored.




#2415775 WCSF Game 7 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2 OT (CHI wins series, 4-3)

Extra big thanks to Mikey and Flashy for making the GDT all season long and playoffs, putting their photoshop skills to work for the greater good. Thanks to both of you guys.
