  1. Just on a whim, have you tried using a different controller? Is it only for that game?
  2. Damn... that was my best shot sorry.
  3. Hossa's contract is one of the reasons they have that new rule in the latest CBA about how much salaries can decrease year to year. It's not a punishment if you can weasel out of it like the Hawks are doing.
  4. I hope Scandella continues to improve for you guys. He really played well the last half of the season and into the playoffs for us. Nothing fancy, but strong, big bodied D-zone guy. I also hope Pommenville finds his touch again there. He got a raw deal in MN and just never really worked out for him here. He's a streak guy, as you know, when he's on he's money but when he's off he just disappears. :-/
  5. Has nothing to do with bias. I have always liked Hossa. But there's no way you can convince me that when he signed that contract neither he, or the Hawks had any intention of him playing it out. Just look at the structure of it. 09-10 $7,9m 10-11 $7.9m 11-12 $7.9m 12-13 $7.9m 13-14 $7.9m 14-15 $7.9m 15-16 $7.9m 16-17 $4m 17-18 $1m 18-19 $1m 19-20 $1m 20-21 $1m Those last 4 years were tacked on ONLY to bring the cap hit down to $5.275m. Otherwise his cap hit would have been $7.412m over 8 years. The writing was on the wall of what he would do when he signed the contract, everyone knew it. I don't care what team he played for. I don't think this is a good precedent for the NHL. Nothing Hossa or the Hawks have said indicates he'll come back the next season. I think they are speaking loudly by what they're not saying. But even then they will say what people want to hear and know exactly what they are going to do. This will repeat itself for the next 3 seasons until the contract is done. Then Hossa can "officially" retire and get into the HOF.
  6. This is going to sound weird, but give this a shot. Disconnect/disable your internet to the Xbox, do a hard reset, turn it on and DON'T let it go online. Then try the install.
  7. It absolutely helps the Blackhawks. They get an aging veteran that didn't want to play anymore off the books (during the season). There is no one, and I mean no one, that thought Hossa would play out the full contract when he signed it. Once that paid salary dropped to $1 million a year the writing was on the wall in big bold letters. He may not be able to be placed on the LTIR until the season officially starts but you can't tell me that cap hit of $5 million and change won't come in handy during the season/at the trade deadline. Kudos to the Hawks for figuring out a way to get out from under that contract and cap hit. Just wait until other teams start to follow suit in the coming years. This is a Pandora's box type thing here. We'll have to agree to disagree on if it's truly legit or not. (I'm not saying he doesn't have issues mind you. I just disagree with how this is playing out).
  8. The answer to that is... maybe. The NHL is looking into it, but realistically won't do a damn thing. It's a lot like the Kings trying to get out from under Mike Richards contract. This Hossa thing just reeks of cap circumvention. His salary dropped down to 1 million this year (and the next 3 years after), but his cap hit would have stayed at 5.275m. Add to that Chicago was actively engaged in talks with Vegas to move Hossa so it's all a little too convenient for me. But like I said 99% sure the NHL won't do anything, but if they don't watch what other GMs try to do going forward to get out from under bad contracts.
  9. Wrong Mirror's Edge. This sale is for the original, not the second one.
  10. Oh, my bad sorry about that. I'll never get that completion then. That DLC is terrible. lol :-)

  11. Ghost Recon Wildlands for me. Fun game with a couple friends, not so much solo. Typical Ubisoft game in that there are way too many collectibles as well. Ah well. Won't be touching the DLC for that though.
  12. I was just going to say the C being capitalized.
  13. Thanks for the help today! :-)

  14. Did this tip last night and my feed is much more enjoyable to look at now. Thanks for the tip.
  15. O_O I didn't even know this was an option. I have just avoided my feed because of all the useless clutter that's there. Will definitely have to check this out.
  16. Last night may have been the best night ever for playoff hockey. Wow. All 4 games go to OT. Multi goal comebacks. Crazy stuff.
  17. ***Mods I wasn't sure where to post this so I landed here. Move if necessary*** I have never had this problem before and I am absolutely stumped as to the cause or the solution. So thought I'd ask everyone here. Spring Xbox sale I was thinking about Watch Dogs 2. I found out there was a 3 hr trial for it, so I naturally downloaded that first. I downloaded it yesterday, played it the first time last night. I played it for about 20 minutes or so and then lost connection to Ubisoft servers, quickly followed by losing connection to Xbox Live. I had to reboot my router and modem before I could get back on-line. I didn't think much of it, just chalked it up to a Charter issue and went about my night. This afternoon literally the same thing happened. 20-30 minutes of playing then bam... lose connection to Ubi servers, then XBL. reboot and everything is fine. Then at 5:30 tonight I tried one more time and the exact same thing happened. Once is an anomaly, twice peaks the curiosity, but 3 times is a trend. I've played other games just fine, even another Ubisoft game (Wildlands) in the meantime without any issues. I was really thinking about getting it for $30 but if this is going to be part of the deal I'm staying far away from this game. I reached out to Ubi support and they asked me to DM them with details and I haven't heard back from them. But do any of you guys have any ideas of what's going on here? This is just bizarre.
  18. Man, this series goes to show you that a hot goalie can absolutely steal a series for a team. Not hating on the Blues but they haven't been THAT phenomenal this series. Allen has been on his own planet. Wild just seem uninterested/willing to make a sacrifice to make a play. All perimeter stuff, and no urgency from anyone aside from Parise and Scandella (who's been very good this series). What a shame after the great season they had.
  19. Ugh game two was disappointing. Stupid penalties by the Wild killed their early momentum. Allen made the saves he needed to tonight. But, scoring 3 goals in 2 games, none 5 on 5, is not going to win you a series by any means.
  20. Jesus what a game. Jake Allen stole that game for the Blues. Dude was a damn wall back there. That was fun to watch.

  23. Alright Bear. Come playoff time you are the enemy. You've been warned.
