Vancouver is Todd’s dream team, no vets, only Young draft picks that have consistently panned out. And Roussel.

It's worth tuning in to watch some of the other games as well. Some have been very entertaining.

I am currently meandering through the midwest (lake of the ozarks yesterday, st louis today, chicago tomorrow) and i just watch whatever game happens to be on the hotel bar.

Make sure to order one of their cracker crust pizzas. You're guaranteed to love it or hate it. There is no middle ground on that one.

Im pretty sure that's what I had last night at the lake but it might be different in South Missouri. I liked it actually. The BBQ is ok here but different.

In Missouri... Outside of St. louis, you would not know that covid was a thing. The pizzeria I went to last night I was literally the only schmuck that wore a face mask into the establishment. The restaurant did not bother to social distance that tables .

What's funny is Arkansas was way way serious about it. In Fayetteville there was basically 100% compliance. Same with Bentonville.

America is an interesting place. I never do trips like this but thanks to covid it really does not matter where I am located.

Sorry. ot.

And Loui Eriksson, who is old but still rocks as a support role guy.

I had to look this one up, but apparently he scored 30 in his final year in Boston, 5 years ago (and 36 for us once). Hasn't scored more than 11 since.

I'm sure he still rules, tho.

Canucks fans have a strange relationship with him. They all like him as a guy, but they also all want him off the team because his contact is horrible. They all know he sucks and is overpaid, but they don't hate him.

It all leads to stuff like this:

Vancouver is paying him back for all the years we underpaid him. I'm 100% onboard with that.

Dickinson is Swedish for “warm body.”

Hintz has cost himself millions of dollars. He started the season looking like a guy was was going to see a huge raise, but his second hold of the season and playoffs have been terrible. He’s going to get the small raise required by a qualifying offer, and that’s it.

Hintz: "I had the same number of playoff points as Benn and Seguin ...combined."
New GM: "Back up the ca$$h truck!"

I like that you assume there will be a new GM. If the Stars win this series, Nill is virtually guaranteed another few years.
