Posted by MabusIncarnate on 14 February 2012 - 02:27 AM

Thanks Tim, i did try and make it as simple as i could but i suppose not simple enough for some. :D


Haha.. I honestly overlooked what SWEDE in the original post, and it looks like just about everyone else did also. I apologize on the behalf of those of us who can't read. :D

I chose Edler from what was on the list, but overall i'd take Letang.


#2255487 what should our 2013 winter classic jersey look like

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 February 2012 - 05:52 PM

I'd love to see navy blue jerseys with a maize winged wheel since the game is at the Big House. Let the Laffs find some white jerseys to wear.


Maybe its just me, but im opposed to anything not red and white/cream. I don't think blue against the leafs is gonna happen.


#2255485 Do You Believe In...

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 February 2012 - 05:44 PM

Here's my stance, I can go on for hours so i'll try to make it brief.

The problem with study and research in fields like this is that everything is left to interpretation and there's so much hoaxing and tampered "evidence" that it's made a mockery of it as a whole. 99.9% of video and audio evidence is faked, which has made trudging through everything available very non-credible.

With that said, when I was younger I grew up in a house in Pennsylvania, the basement was partially remains of the underground railroad during the slave movement. It extended nearly a half mile underground until a point where it was either closed off or it had collapsed. My closest neighbors were over a mile away, and there really was no path that connected this railroad to another home. On dozens of occasions I heard muffled voices that used to terrify me when I was a child, but it grew more into curiosity as I got older. I could never make out words but I could distinguish male from female voices. It was never conversations, but more two or three word phrases that would occur anywhere from five minutes to an hour apart.

So were these ghosts? I really don't have an answer for it, but I would consider it paranormal as it went unexplained without a logical reason behind it. There are caverns in New Mexico that are a major tourist attraction, you can walk through these rock caverns and hear the cries and chants of native americans. Does this make it a paranormal event? Not necessarily. Limestone deposits can act as a battery, and points in time under the right conditions can be recorded and replayed, or cause a residual audio effect. Is it more likely that during a thunderstorm with the right amount of electricity and the correct combination of minerals recorded events from the past and continues to replay it like an audio recorder? Yeah I believe it is very likely, and it could offer an explaination from what I experienced.

Carl Sagan wrote that there are more stars in the sky than there are grains of sand on every beach on our planet. If you can even wrap your head around a number like that, it's literally billions upon billions of stars. This entire universe with all those stars and we are the only planet that can harbor life? It's really doubtful. Intelligent beings? Who knows, the universe is endless, and it's very possible that we may never know in this lifetime. Single celled organisms, plants, even fish or animals, yeah I gotta say that it's more possible than not. Again, with all recorded evidence being faked or hoaxed, no I don't think any UFO sightings outside of the Phoenix Lights have any kind of validity. But let's be real here, say we DID have the technology to visit another planet, we would explore right? So has something come here to observe and study us? Probably not, but it may be possible. Nothing I have seen has convinced me though.

I think Bigfoot is pretty much blown out of proportion at this point, there's been sightings around the world, all continents, most of all countries. My gripe with this, NO species of animal makes it's home across all of the continents. It just doesn't happen that way and the overabundance of sightings worldwide has pretty much eliminated the possibility of something like this existing. Sightings limited to one region of the world are more logical, but not necessarily true. Loch Ness? I know i've seen the great lakes and they look like the ocean. Are there species that live in the furthest depths that man still hasn't seen by man? I think absolutely there is. Are there "sea creatures"? More likely not. I believe most cases are misidentified, as most video footage is always blurry.

So that's about my general opinion, i'm open minded, but logical and skeptical. I have had strange instances in my life that brought me to open the page I run so there is a level of belief on my end, but i'm not going to post footage from Ghost Hunters and call it legitimate.


#2255476 Joey Mac

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 February 2012 - 05:03 PM

He should be our backup... But I have a question for the board, what can we do to Conklin? I mean in terms of "releasing him." Basically would we waive him like what we did to Brunnstrom?

Thanks


Give him a flyers jersey and leave him on LaViolette's doorstep in a basket :clap:

Seriously.. Joey Mac has shown he's earned the spot, Conklin really hasn't. Where it goes from there i'm not sure but Joey deserves it and I feel a bit more comfortable when he plays.

Pretty sure Sam Gagner was on coke for his eight pointer. :yowza:


#2254771 What Ken Holland should do at the deadline

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 February 2012 - 05:49 PM

To TB- McCullum,Brunnstrom(or a prospect),and a pick

To Det- Purcell


purcell is a big body right hand shot can put up some points and has good speed maybe Holland can swing a deal with TB and Stevey saying it doesnt look like they are making the playoffs and need a possible shake up


I like this a bit better.. I don't want to get involved with Semin, next thing we know we are stuck with a big contract on an inconsistent guy that stops caring when he gets paid. I definitely don't want to pay out that much for Semin either, there's much better options out there.


#2252782 Moen / Gill / Allen

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 February 2012 - 03:32 AM

I like Plekanec... I don't think they will move him.


Yeah very doubtful, he might be the only player on that team that has been consistent and productive for the last three seasons. Even with as poor as they are playing this year he is still quietly putting together a solid season.


#2248520 1/23 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 3

Helm is everywhere tonight, thats easily his third solid hit tonight. Someone fed him some Wheaties.


#2246931 Fight During Postgame Handshake

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 18 January 2012 - 06:48 PM

That's just embarrassing, I don't care what one said to the other to spark it if that was even the case. The game is over, this was unnecessary, i'd expect to see this in the NFL but not in hockey.


#2246756 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium Finalized

#2246064 Detroit player on NHL 36?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 16 January 2012 - 06:12 PM

This topic blew my mind until I read the thread, I thought it was in reference to the video game. I was thinkin.. is it really gonna be 24 years before a Red Wing is on the cover of an NHL game again and do they really determine it that far into the future?

lol...


#2243409 Bobby Ryan

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 January 2012 - 02:09 AM

I'm probably alone on this, but if a lot of people have gripes with Franzen being so off and on with production, why bring in Ryan? He is the definition of streaky, can blow up for a week or two then go 20 games without a goal. If we are going for streaky here, i'd rather go for Nash and at least get some physical presence when he's not scoring. I'd pass on Ryan, and would rather keep what we would have to sacrifice to get him.

#2210754 Numbers to be placed on FRONT and back of helmet

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 30 September 2011 - 06:43 AM

They just need to make it a requirement that every NHL ref and linesman are to memorize every player's name and number by their face between seasons, that way we won't have to worry about small numbers on the helmets.
