    COD: 20-9
  1. Hmmm, well my Kings made a nice move today ... http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=777457&navid=DL|NHL|home ... CHRISTIAN EHRHOFF signed to 1 yr @ $1.5 Mil deal. Granted he had a poor and injury plagued season with Pittsburgh last year, BUT ... this is a very low risk / high reward signing, provides experienced depth on D at a good price, for a non-committal term, at a time when we need to keep our cap space options open, and younger kids are almost ready to move up into roster spots (Derek Forbort, Kevin Gravel, Paul LaDue, Zac Leslie, Nic Ebert). Most importantly, it gives the Kings more options if nothing else.
  2. No Offense but ... - http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/175089-who-makes-the-most-reliable-hard-drives= NOT SEAGATE ! - https://www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-drive-reliability-update-september-2014/ - http://www.pcworld.com/article/2089464/three-year-27-000-drive-study-reveals-the-most-reliable-hard-drive-makers.html= Hitachi > WD > everyone else > Seagate - http://www.infoworld.com/article/2873683/storage-drives/western-digital-hgst-most-reliable-hard-drives.html= WD & HGST are BEST ! ... Seagate makes THE WORST ! and LEAST RELIABLE HDD's on the market PERIOD ! end of discussion , don't care what your personal anecdotal belief is, facts say otherwise. And as far as SSD's ... the best are SAMSUNG PRO's, INTEL, SanDisk, Corsair Neutron XT's, and yep CRUCIAL ! ... AVOID OCZ and ANY SSD with the SANDFORCE controllers !!!! they are garbage ! I'd go as far as to say CRUCIAL is your BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK SSD on the market and has been for years now, and I've had mine over 4 years now, so ???
  3. Meaningless in .... oh NOW ... as WINDOWS 10 just got released 3 hours ago
  4. Also ... a note about those LIFETIME Tech Support and " WARRANTY " options. Of course they SOUND GOOD on paper, and give you that all warm and fuzzy feeling of being protected don't they ... I suggest you READ up on the customer satisfaction reviews from people who bought these "pre-built" systems from companies like cyberpowerpc & ibuypower , etc. through a distributor like NewEgg you can read reviews (hint, not many are favorable), you may get the idea why many of us say TRY BUILDING IT YOURSELF .... and , WHEN was the last time YOU actually CALLED Tech Support ? No One does that anymore do they ? we all go online and search for an answer or get Tech support via help forums and such. Just trying to show you and say ... while they look good on paper, usually those warranties and tech support options are crap and rarely if ever used, and these companies know it.
  5. Well ... unless I just don't see it ... you have NO VIDEO CARD listed in that build ??? At about $1000 you should have SOME sort of Graphics card ? Also I'm personally NOT a fan of the Windows 8 OS ... I know Win 10 is right around the corner, BUT IMO in a desktop environment I'd suggest and I use WIN 7 Pro 64 bit, and Win 7 will get you the FREE upgrade copy of Win 10 also ... the funny tag line about Win 10 going around the internet ... " Thank You windows 8 ... if you didn't SUCK SO BAD ... Windows 10 wouldn't BE SO GOOD ! " Here's a couple decent Rigs through NewEgg http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.2349540 = $1000 with discounts and rebates. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.2253467 = $1000 with discounts and rebates.
  6. http://fearless-assassins.com/topic/62525-q-a-can-i-build-a-decent-gaming-rig-for-750-1000-why-yes-you-can/page-1 Don't expect a lot for under $800 ... and with that tight a budget, I'd consider going ALL AMD ... they are the most budget friendly option for CPU, MoBo and GPU to be sure. As for having someplace put it together for you .... WHY ? Are you that afraid to try it yourself ? it's actually really rather easy and painless for the most, I mean sure things CAN go wrong, but if you take a little time to educate yourself prior (youtube is FULL of tutorials) , it really is like putting lego's together and you should be OK. But IF not ... you can buy the parts and take it to a small local PC shop to put together, I know a friend who did this, and they charged him just under $100. So you can either pocket that $100 and try yourself or keep it local ... or IF you must try a place like these ... https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/ http://www.ibuypower.com/ but sites like these charge a $200 to $300 premium just to assemble your build and slap a worthless warranty full of fine print on it ... personally, I'd try to build it yourself, or have a friend help you !
  7. HA! at least you have a good sense of humor about it L3ftY
  8. Story is Martin Jones and the Kings weren't close in RFA negotiations, Kings are in no need to overpay for a backup as Quick will play 3/4 or more of the games anyways so his name came up in trades ... We can go out and sign a vet back-up or look at Jean-François Bérubé (won Caldar Cup with Kings AHL team Manchester Monarchs this season) as a cheap rookie back-up similar to what Jones was last year ... so not a big loss. Boston will also retain about 1/2 of Lucic's contract, so helps the Kings with CAP Space too ! Colin Miller is a decent D prospect, but doubtful to see time on LA's roster soon ? and we have other D prospects ... plus the Kings are still hopefully working on a contract extension for Andrej Sekera ? as Voynov is unlikely to ever play in the NHL again ? The Kings WILL buy out Mike Richards ... but it's doubtful to be enough CAP Relief to retain Justin Williams sadly ... but we did just extend Tyler Toffoli ! and Stoll is most likely not going to be coming back even though the drug charges were dropped ... MILAN LUCIC / ANZE KOPITAR / MARIAN GABORIK TANNER PEARSON / JEFF CARTER / TYLER TOFFOLI DWIGHT KING / NICK SHORE / DUSTIN BROWN JORDAN NOLAN / TREVOR LEWIS / KYLE CLIFFORD ANDY ANDREOFF DREW DOUGHTY / JAKE MUZZIN ANDREJ SEKERA / BRAYDEN MCNABB MATT GREENE / ALEC MARTINEZ QUICK BERUBE So ? hmmm dunno .... I think we need MORE ?
  9. Man ... NO ! ... know wonder my KDR has gone down Take care OW and Best wishes ... hope to still game with you somewhere, somehow, in a future date and time ... stay in touch !
  10. Congrat's TC ... one hell of a team there, and YES it's a DYNASTY ... I ony hope my Kings will regain form after such a dreadful year to forget this last, and IF they can rebound and WIN another CUP, that would be 3 in 5 to match your 3 in 6 and we'd have to be in that Dynasty conversation as well. I can only hope right
  11. OR you could say they just got their annual post-season choke out of the way early this year before the play-offs even started. HA!
  12. Congrats to TC's BEARS ? bwhahahaha
  13. Congrats to the Hawks ... and TC ... but next year we're coming back for OUR TITLE ! I'm all for keeping this pattern going next year
  14. And what happened to the Hawks between their Cup Runs in 2009-10 and 2012-13 ? Finished low in the standings and lost in the first round Quarter finals each. Kings WON the Cup in 2011-12, Lost in CONFERENCE FINALS to Hawks in 2012-13, and WON the Cup again in 2013-14 ... so from the start of the 2011 season to the end of the 2015 regular season ... no team has ever played more games during that span of time ... it's simply stating a FACT. Period. NOT an excuse as you call it. And IF the Kings can bounce back and have a strong 2015-16 season, maybe win another cup ... would you deny they are at or very near the same dynasty level the Hawks are ? what other team would even come remotely close if not the Kings ?
  15. WELP ... while my NHL KINGS might have missed the playoffs, mainly due to complete exhaust from playing more games than any team in History these last 3+ years of winning TWO CHAMPIONSHIPS .... BUT ... the future is STILL BRIGHTER than MOST TEAMS ! Congrats to the AHL "Kings" Manchester Monarchs for winning their first ever Calder Cup ! http://manchestermonarchs.com/news/monarchsnews/?article_id=647 Some of these kids will be ready for the NHL jump this coming year or next, so the Kings should remain one of the top teams in the NHL for quite some time. Thundercats ... we still have that deal ? we let your Hawks win the Cup in ODD years and my Kings win the Cup in EVEN years see ya next season.
