  1. The entire Beatles catalog has already been remaster by George Martin a couple of years ago. Mono versions and stereo versions. They sound, to this audio engineer's ears, even better than the originals. Further, I cannot WAIT to get my hands on the new LZ remasters. Finally, the whole "vinyl sounds better/no it doesn't" argument is equivalent to the whole "apples taste much better than oranges?no they don't argument". They sound different. Due to the RIAA equalization curve, vinyl can never sound like CD or hi-def audio. The low frequency causes the record cutting machines to skip. Therefore the ow end must be reduced to avoid product damage. Also, the fidelity changes the closer you get to the center of the album. This is why singles are located first on each side, as well. OK. Audio class over for today. Ask me about the difference between 96/24 from a session tracked at 44.1 or 44 respectively, vs 96/24 direct from tape. Or better yet, go here to see why the recoding bit depth is the most important factor where mastering is concerned:
  2. [Rumor] Ryan Miller to Vancouver Thread

    I know it's the most recent, but the sample size in St Louis is too small. However bad some people are saying Miller is now, you think Lack is better? He doesn't have the chops yet, and to have a mentor like Miller around for 2-3 seasons would propel Lack's game to another level that would take much longer to achieve without an experienced number 1 to learn from.
  3. [Rumor] Ryan Miller to Vancouver Thread

    Youth is one thing. Comparing Lack and Markstrom to the goalies you listed is farcical. How many cups between the five guys you listed? Even they had tutelage. Miller could mentor Lack to greatness. Seriously. Quick, Howard, Niemi , Crawford and Rask? Could you have tried any harder to cherry pick a better handful of young goalies to illustrate your point? How about a list , now, of all of the worst NHL goal tenders under 26 to offset the list of elites you just trotted out? For christ sake.
  4. Are you comfortable with Lack & Markstrom?

    This. There is no reason we can't walk an chew gum at the same time. Play for today, plan for tomorrow. That's how a real GM takes care of business. All of the #1 picks in the world don't promise future success. Look at Edmonton. They've had what, three #1 in a row? 4? I've lost count. The only thing they got out of it is suck-cess. Win today, dominate tomorrow. Never tank for magic beans. Ever.
  5. [Draft] VAN selects Jake Virtanen 6th Overall

    You know zilch. Squat. Nothing. Not a god damned thing.
  6. [Report] Booth on Waivers

    Careful. That logic/reason stuff can get you into trouble 'round these parts.
  7. [Report] Booth on Waivers

    For once I actually agree with you.
  8. SCF: (5) New York Rangers vs (6) Los Angeles Kings

    TV ratings. A real hockey town has better TV ratings? I get it now.
  9. SCF: (5) New York Rangers vs (6) Los Angeles Kings

    There are some who would say the team that plays the best and wins four games in the finals is the team that "deserved" it. And if hockey is an afterthought, as you say, isn't it good for the league and the game for that "cesspool" to win a couple of cups to elevate awareness of the game? Yeah, I think the real problem is that you are bitter and sour grapes that the Canucks couldn't get it done when they got to the dance and the Kings got it done each of the last two times they went. It would be sad if it weren't so funny.
  10. SCF: (5) New York Rangers vs (6) Los Angeles Kings

    If losing is losing, what difference does it make how you "go out"? You seem to want to hate the Canucks and love the Rags. But the Canucks played better than the Rags, despite not having as much star power. Did they get abused? Yes. Would stooping to the Bs level give them more dignity somehow? According to you: yes.
  11. SCF: (5) New York Rangers vs (6) Los Angeles Kings

    By Gary Bettman town you mean what exactly? He's from LA? He built LA? He invented LA? He named LA? I don't understand. Is this a tinfoil hat comment? Did Gary bettman tell Lundqvist to serve up that rebound to Martinez in the second OT? Elaborate . . .
  12. SCF: (5) New York Rangers vs (6) Los Angeles Kings

    Rolled over and shut Boston out twice and won 3 out of 7. Boy, NY really showed us how it's done by winning only one game out of 5. Funyy how AV was at the helm of both of those situations.
  13. So can we assume A V wasn't the problem?

    Maybe a bit better than wildcard. But I would argue that if the Rangers were in the West and had Sutter as a coach they'd be pretty close to where they are right now. AV is a good coach. That 's it. Good. He rode Luongo to victory in Vancouver and has ridden Lundquist to victory in NYC. He's great in the regular season: that has been proven already. Those saying he wasn't "the" problem are correct. Those saying he wasn't part of the problem are delusional. His inability to adjust will leave him winless when it counts, yet again.
  14. Quit being gullible, you are the problem with this team.

    I think I understand what's going on here. You think you are helping the situation. You think that because you've identified what you find wrong with a few people in this community that you are somehow qualified to stand above the hoi paloi and administer a little dose of "what they need". The way you talk: "As a former mod", "a little tough love", "a whole world out there about to eat them alive". It suggests to nearly everyone who reads it that you think you're pretty special. The truth is, you're just a dude on the internet, like the rest of us, who has an opinion on something. Flashing your credentials and talking in a paternalistic tone doean't add weight to your message, it exposes you as a self important dude on the internet. There are more than enough of those to go around. No need to start a whole thread - as a former mod you ought to know that.

    That something is called common sense.
