Except Nashville doesn't have to give up anything.

Fisher should help Nashville. He isn't a super star and he doesn't need to be one. He is 37 and didn't play this season because he was too injured. Now he feels better, but how long will that last? It's not a big gamble.

I meant it more in response to the team being bitter he can waltz in for essentially just the playoffs.

Is he even any good? Hopefully this messes up their entire chemistry a la Langenbrunner in 2011.

That's what I was thinking. And then I quickly trailed off once I realized that I don't give a *f-bomb* what Nashville does as long as Hayley Williams sings their national anthem at some point.

Didn't really know where to put this, but here is an excellent read. One of The Athletic's writers went on a four day trip with the ECHL's Brampton Beasts. Really great article about what life can be like in the minors. And its open to non-subscribers as well. Its worth your time.

It’s just because hockey players aren’t completely illiterate dumbasses like the people who play other major sports.

Any other non politically correct observations needed, please let me know.

Wasn't there recently a legitimately illiterate NHL coach?

Of course all of this pales in comparison to the fans. Hockey fans are about 11.3 times more smarterer than fans of other sports, according to a study's summary I glanced at the first sentence of.

Jim Lites's Dorito-munching study debunked that study.

Barzal had five points tonight. This is the fifth time for him to do so this season.
