theres just no moderators that are active in keeping the place in check.. 2 people get into an argument in a thread that has nothing to do with the thread and every single person on the board has to read through it.. if people want to clog up threads by arguing they should just start arguing through pm.

 

This is fair, I'll agree with the bolded.

 

I do prefer this moderation type that DM and Msweet provide though.  I have so many infractions on hfboards just from speaking objectively that I've completely lost count.

Anyone else think it'll be nice to not hear Clement talk about how we won the 2012 Cup when you play as the Devils?

 

It was bad they let it in NHL 13 and even worse when it was still in the damn game last year.

 

Also, I'm beyond thrilled McGuire isn't the one doing the between the glass.

It would have been kind of funny with him randomly talking about Crosby and Hal Gill during a Devils-Coyotes game.

Threads/discussions can get derailed are any point.  It's not like this was done entirely on purpose.  That's why they're called discussions.  It happens.

 

Eh now I am starting to think you two are right.  Maybe I am looking at this too harshly (I am being 100% honest with this).

 

I think one of the things I will do for this coming season is to be less critical of our own fans and just let it be.  God knows it will be better for myself and others lol.

 

Ok carry on about NHL 15 now.  I don't play the game so ummmm there's that.

Much respect.  Takes guts to admit something like this publicly.  Fans will be fans, but not all are the same.  Respect.

I noticed this as well.  I constantly heard it at the beginning of the season and I was like, "Wait, what?"  Clement is a bullsh!tter.  Not only was it wrong, but it threw me for a loop because I've never heard the color guys give false information.

It's not a pissing contest but damn if you need to harp on something from two years ago when the rags are about to go to the finals and possibly win while the devils are out playing golf for a month now? Yeah and I'm the insecure one.

I wonder if the rags win the cup if devils fans next year do the "if you know the ranger suck" chant with the "and they'll never win the cup" part in there. I bet anything they will and that's when I truly put my head down in shame as I do not expect better from a good chunk of this fanbase. If you want to talk insecurities, then how about less whining about not being allowed to chant "you suck" to the other team and focusing half the chants at any given devils home game against the idiots who play across the river.

Funny I would have thought the three cup wins since 1994 would have erased that memory but I guess not given how focused this fanbase is on the team across the river.

Every fan base has idiots. Every fan base has pessimist sh!ts. It happened 2 years ago. I don't care if the rangers win this year; that will always be my most incredible hockey moment and the instant it went in I will never forget. I remember Arnott scoring, slightly, and I remember the 03 cup a bit better but for those of us who didn't know what it's like to be fully invested in the sport and see a Cup that moment will give me shivers for the rest of my life.

EDIT: Jumped the gun and didn't see your posts on this page. Fair enough.

Ugh can we please move away from this?

On Sunday was the 2-year anniversary of that happening and every devils fan group on Facebook was all over it. We make fun of the rangers and their fans for constantly bringing up 1994 especially since we won the cup three times since. Now we are constantly bringing up something that happened two years ago while the rags are one win away from being in the finals. Sunday was one of those days I was a bit embarrassed to be a devils fan.

Reminds me of a time when I was leaving a Devils game a few years ago that eliminated them from playoff contention, and someome yelled 'Rangers suck!" And another Devs fan yelled back, "So do we!"

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Just 60, lucky.  I'll have to pony up for the new system to boot.

I hear ya, I just don't see why they can't show roughly 10 seconds or so of actual gameplay.  With the power of these systems, we know the fluff footage is going to look awesome.

And not that I'm complaining, but it's kind of funny how no one makes an East-to-West hockey game anymore (basically what you'd see on TV).  The original Nintendo hockey, Blades of Steel...I think there was an ESPN Hockey for the Genesis waaaaaaay back in the day that was the first (and maybe only) one to offer both East-to-West and North-to-South views. 

 

I'm stuck on NHL 2K5 myself...the AI goes into cheap mode sometimes (basically decides it's going to win no matter what you do), but I just happen to like that one.  I have NHL 14 but haven't really dove into it yet.

I liked those games for the simplicity and the fact that they try to make the games as close to the real NHL teams as possible without doing so otherwise they would have violated the NHL licensing contracts (basically those games didn't have one).

 

I think the last NHL game I really liked was NHL 2002.  I had it for my PC and used a controller that was an exact copy of the PS2 controller and played it for days on end for months.  I got NHL 2003 and just wasn't into it as much as 2002.  Since then haven't even bothered to keep up as my interest in modern video games pretty much dried up for good.

This was Sega Saturn's NHL All-Star Hockey...it came out in '96.  The intro was pretty cool for the time...hockey footage spliced in with in-game action...with Snap's "I got the power!" blaring away...it did have a way of getting you excited, especially since pseudo 3D-arena and ice graphics were quite a novelty back then:

 

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=teBxpMmcZ1g

 

The game itself was beyond awful.  Lots of camera angles, just about all of which were terrible.  Poor control.  Butt-ugly logoless, faceless, nameless, and numberless players.  But it WAS a beginning and a sign of things to come, just like the Wright Bros' first airplane (which never flew so much as a mile before crashing). 

 

The 32-bit games are aging especially badly...the low-res graphics of that era are quite painful to watch now (though they seemed awesome then).

 

NHL Powerplay 98...this one was pretty good for the time:

EA 98 for the Saturn and Playstation...the PS version looked FAR better:
