Yeah, I am loving the fact that they keep finding ways to loose. Mean but it is the ducks so whatever. :lol

So I bought a new TV today with wireless access so I can watch all the Hawks games on a big screen. It is a nice TV but whomever designed their integrated browser (I asked and no I cannot install chrome, ie, etc, etc) so I have a toolbar at the top with facebook, twitter, google + and some other social media nonsense and I cannot remove it, I spent hours on the phone with best buy, samsung, NHL and an IT tech I know and it can not be removed. As if I want to chat through a game I am watching - gotta wonder what these dimwhitted developers were thinking!!!!!! UGH!

Rangers are in serious trouble at this point. Honestly think changes are coming if they don't right the ship in the next month. No excuse for them to be playing this poorly. I would not be surprised to see this oranization fire a coach if the results keep going south.

Offically under .500 on the road now too....

Those cocksucking, piss poor developers! ;)

But I hear you. We recently purchased a smart TV as well and I was hoping to use it with Gamecenter. Running into your same issue, I settled on Chromecast (which we had anyways), which I use to cast what's playing on my laptop (in this case, hockey games) to the TV. It's not perfect, but it gets the job done. And plus chromecast isn't that expensive. I'm sure there are other options out there.

Just fyi, the Caps are really fucking good this year. Holy shit what a game tonight. Nothing phases these dudes right now. Down 3-0 halfway through the game? No sweat. 5 unanswered, for the win.

Gonna hurt a lot this year. I just keep thinking about it. And it's gonna hurt.

Just send them a daily tweet saying it takes four wins and not three to close out a series in the playoffs

Just frustrating you know? I think they should have developed the browser with an option to turn off the tool bar ya know? I am not going to use a smart TV for social media, I want to lie in my bed or plop myself in my Archie Bunker type reading chair. If I wanted to FB my thoughts or post on here I could do it from my smart phone. There is no mouse on my TV so I have to use the up, down, left and right buttons on my remote and to be honest it is slow and clunky. I can in the future connect a real wireless mouse but at this point most of my money is being used for Christmas gifts and decorations so I don't have the money to buy a new mouse until I get paid again in two weeks! :)

Pens assign Daniel Sprong, their most promising player, to Quebec Juniors. God, they suck this year. :lol At least I can enjoy Geno.

Wait... Has anyone even verified that Ovie can count up to four? That may be what the Caps have been missing all along!

I did that a few weeks ago. Finished the original 3 (for the first time) just in time to jump on the train. I go see the new one this afternoon!

Can he get it tonight?!

I hope he scores all the goals forever for the sake of my fantasy team :lol

Re: The NHL Thread
 
That was a pretty bad call by the official to give San Jose a power play that they converted on. Shaw and someone on the Sharks got tangled up struggling for the puck and one of the Sharks sticks broke so they called interference on Shaw. Give me a break. Kane scores yet again and San Jose wastes their timeout challenging it when it was clear to anyone that there was nothing wrong with the goal. Hoping Hawks can cash in on this power play to open the third and tie the game at 3 and then settle in and let their top guys take over!

Tuesday's Hawks/Dallas game should make for some great offense, Kane, Benn, Seguin and Toews (among others) should make this one hell of a hockey game!!!

I will be the trend setter and say it now.... AV OUT!

Seriously though, I understand the Caps are very good this year, but that does not excuse this pathetic Rangers team. Change is needed in some form. I don't know if it comes in the fashion of a trade to shake things up, or if they go as far as firing AV. I just know that the current team as is WILL miss the playoffs. I can forgive sloppy play for a short 3-6 game stretch. However, when it goes on over a month it is time to admit there is a major problem.

I have seen the writing on the wall of the past two weeks that this team is in trouble.

Nice to see that fate has a sense of humor! Shaw gets an extremely questionable penalty that San Jose cashes in on and then in the 3rd period he scores to tie the score at 3. Game goes to OT and Toews and Kane get a loose puck and give and go up the ice and Kane puts the puck right on Toews stick and he buries it for the game winner!!!!

Also - nice to see that Seabrook has that veteran composure and did not retaliate for that cheap shot by one of the SJ guys to give them a power play.

Caps are ungodly good right now.

Also Rangers are awful. A month in they were god awful in all advanced stats across the board, and now we are finally seeing the regression back to the norm

Lcsulla 12-20-2015 07:21 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Agreed, Rangers look terrible lately - they cannot do anything right! I feel bad for them and for their fans because the talent is certainly there, they are just playing bad. Outside of the Hawks I am always cheering the Rangers and they have been painful to watch since their initial surge early on ended.

If a guy is on waivers is he still eligible for the all star game? Doubt this has ever come up before. :lol

I feel kinda bad for John Scott in all of this. He sounds just as embarrassed by it all as the NHL itself is.

I think I have watched New Hope more than any other movie in my life. It is likely in the 100's with Empire Strikes Back second. Of course, I'm a child of the 80's and my brothers and I watched that shit on Betamax like everyday playing with our Star Wars toys.
