Morning Free Association: November 29

Zdeno Chara and John-Michael Liles did not make the trip to Philly, which was to be expected given the unknown nature of their respective lower-body and upper-body injuries. Presumably they get to sit at home and relax. Two other injured Bruins, Frank Vatrano and Noel Acciari were put to work on Black Friday, shilling Bruins gear at the Pro Shop.

Maybe that’s a useful way for them to spend their time being employees. They probably had to take a massive pay cut.

GOOD! If they have to give up the name, they can’t use OUR colors!

I’d be fine if they had to switch to the Desert Knights.

Two things: One, I think my early post got deleted, maybe? Maybe my eyes are bad and I can’t find it.

Is there a way to unify the pages? Seems to me like having to navigate to a few pages within a general thread might get frustrating after a while.

You are aware that the it’s supposed to be “Talk dirty to me“, not “Talk dirty to myself“?

That’s interesting. Earlier I was using a Windows 10 computer and the gif worked. Back on my old Windows 7(?) and it just posts the link. Hmmmmm.

Hi all!
In alternate reality land (ie my current NHL17 season) we see the Bruins rise to 6-0-1 to start the young season. After struggling to solve Lundqvist for half a game, Pasta made what was meant to be a pass through the crease that bounced off the Henrik’s skate as he shifted and went in. This sparked an epic collapse for the Rangers who gave up four in a row and saw McDonagh take a game misconduct after elbowing Backes as he drove towards the net.

Currently Pastrnak leads the team with 4 goals, Marchand has 6 assists, and Backes leads the team in total points.

Playstation or Xbox?

Pasta was the Bs leading scorer when we won the Cup in my NHL16 season razz

I’m on the PS4. I need to up the difficulty a bit after the latest patch. Something seems to have changed in terms of the AI’s ability to deal with checking. This isn’t bad because they were unnaturally accurate passers and insanely tenacious on the boards early on but the line between the AI being pushovers and them being unfair is a fine one.

I do like how you can alter every facet of the gameplay.

Add me if you like. My username is Adamko1977 (at least I’m pretty sure that’s what it is!

I am choosing to forego PS+ this coming year though. I just haven’t done enough multiplayer or played the ‘free’ games enough to justify bothering. Automatic updating is nice and all, but not exactly a huge deal.

There’s been a trend over the past several years of using the 1-3-1 on power plays. Some teams are using a modified 1-3-1 where instead of the “1” player parked in front of the net, they set up behind the net. It’s related to the “torpedo system” power play:
