#2534802 NHL 15

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 22 August 2014 - 04:10 PM

Oh but of course their cash cow HUT will still be there, so they can have their $20 player card pack deals and bank on those every week. 

 

EA has proven time and time again that money is top priority. 

 

I've been playing versus since Sega Genesis hockey games. For me it's run it's course, that's why I loved EASHL so much because it was an entirely different way to play the game. With full human control, there is no "glitching" or exploiting the AI goaltender all game with short side high corner goals that go in 100% of the time if you shoot from the right area of the ice. With the human element there, 6 human players versus 6 human players, it's true competition and team work to succeed and win games. 

 

NHL 13 and 14 combined, I had about 2,700 EASHL games played, got my Legend 3 card within the first 6 weeks of the games release and played it around 5 times a week. Now I gotta find something new to binge out on when i'm bored at night and looking to game.

#2534749 Trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi

Posted by number9 on 21 August 2014 - 11:56 PM

IMO this was always a freak accident. Sure Bertuzzi shouldn't have thrown the cheap shot, but there are plenty of on-par or worse cheap shots that have been thrown in the NHL. The only difference is this one happened to end with the unthinkable. The result was certainly not Bertuzzi's intention, just like no player intends to end a career when they go airborne on a hit, or throw an elbow, or slam a head into the boards, or uppercut an opponents face. The intent is always to harm, but never this. The problem is 1/somelargenumber end up like this. That's the reality of fast contact sports that condones fighting. I hope that moore can get what he needs, but I also don't think that Bertuzzi should be burned at the stake for his actions. This has been hashed out a million times, but It's late and I've been drinking.




#2534849 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 23 August 2014 - 07:26 PM

Datsyuk much more complete player to me. Although I can not imagine the number Federov would have put up now.

 

Have people forgotten that Fedorov played defense, scored 56 goals while winning the Selke, and often played with Shawn Burr on a TKO line shadowing the opposition's top players? Fedorov was a BEAST on both ends of the ice. He was very much a complete player.




#2534230 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by Jesusberg on 14 August 2014 - 10:48 AM

I honestly don't think the guy is a bad general manager - he's proven just the opposite over the years. I just think some aspects of the game have passed him by - namely making moves and having a good relationship with other general managers.

That being said, results are results. Regardless of his intentions, Holland hasn't made too many impact moves of late. The ones he's tried to make haven't turned out well. I'm not overly thrilled with the term, but I guess we'll see how it goes. Bonus is if this gets Babs to sign on for some term, otherwise it's kind of "meh" for me.

#2534146 Alfie wants to play

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 13 August 2014 - 10:50 AM

To be honest, a lot of this Alfredsson or Jurco talk is starting to piss me off... The real issue here in my opinion is, we need to get rid of Andersson so we don't lose a kid like Callahan on waivers and we need to get rid of Kindl so we have room for one of the kids...
 
Alfredsson should be on the team if he and the team feel he's fit to play. Beneficial to the team this season without hurting the team in the future...
Jurco should be sent down to start the season in the minors. He needs more seasoning in the minors, getting top line minutes and playing in all situations...
Andersson should be waived. He has been passed on the depth chart by too many guys to crack the lineup...
Callahan should be on the 23 man roster to start the season. He has earned his chance to crack the lineup and would be a welcomed physical presence on the 4th line...
Kindl should be traded for a mid to late round draft pick to make room for one of the kids...
One of Ouellet / Sproul / Marchenko / Backman should be on the 23 man roster to start the season...


I agree with everything except that jurco should be in the minors. Jurco has earned his place in the lineup and should be starting the season on the kid line with sheahan and Tatar. I don't understand how people don't see this. On many nights this was our best line and at times dominated the opposition. Now think what they can do against 3rd lines and 3rd line d-pairings

The kid line has more chemistry than anybody on our team with the exception being pav and z. Play them together.

As for alfy he should be signed and id really like to see him play with pav and z as he has the hockey iq, skill, and most importantly shot to play well with them and finish their setups.

The real problem is the signing of cleary as all of his money could be going to alfy instead. As well he is blocking a guy like Callahan from being up with the big club

#2533338 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by matthewdanna on 30 July 2014 - 01:26 AM

MOST IMPORTANTLY... he ain't getting traded. 




#2533246 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by number9 on 29 July 2014 - 12:44 AM

Not saying Tatar is a money guy, but he's been up and coming for years for the wings and has always been held back, this is a good show of faith. Hopefully he hangs around longer than happy face.


#2533240 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 28 July 2014 - 11:23 PM

 

I believe he is a key player on this squad.  He brings so much energy each night, and can score from multiple spots.  He isn't afraid to go to the hard spots and is good in low.  He has top speed and a knack for making key plays.  Good signing.




#2533142 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by rick zombo on 28 July 2014 - 01:13 PM

$7M? Overpayment.... No more than $1.5M per please. Maybe $5M for the term.

 

I don't think 2.3M/yr is overpayment. That third year could end up being a bargain.

 

Although Holland is terrific with his RFA signings (see: Sheahan, Riley) so I wouldn't be shocked at 1.5M per either.

The term is perfect for both sides. Both sides will get to see what they have in 3 years.


#2533078 Winter is coming..

Posted by FlashyG on 27 July 2014 - 02:58 PM

For some reason, going by the topic title I thought this was going to be some kind of Game of Thrones related thread.

 

 

There's no reason it can't be.
