Marc Crawford is now a head coach in the NHL again.

Thus bringing the Senators close to the full circle of suck.

http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/2611 ... hn-tavares

Before the game, the parking lot of the old barn was filled with fans expressing their displeasure with Tavares. Jerseys had nameplates made of electrical tape that read "LIAR" and "JUDAS" and "PAJAMA BOY," a reference to that childhood bed photo. (In reality, Tavares was never photographed in Maple Leafs pajamas. But no one actually said "Play it again, Sam" in "Casablanca," either.)

There were signs and towels calling him a traitor. There were rubber snakes, which have become a symbol of his alleged treachery. There were Tavares jerseys laid in the road in the parking lot so cars could run them over; if a car managed to miss it, a fan would politely stop the vehicle, ask it to back up and try again. Some Islanders fans turned their Tavares gear into ash, burning jerseys and shirts in fires inside of small metal drums.

Inside the arena, Tavares was taunted like few players in NHL history could claim to have been taunted by their former fans. It started even before the players were warming up, with fans chanting "We don't need you" -- the Islanders, post-Tavares, are in first place in the Metropolitan Division.

When he came out with the Leafs to warm up, he was booed loudly and showered with a chant of an anatomical nature. (They also crossed the line in tossing a rubber snake and a jersey at Tavares.)

"Warm-ups were great. It was a fun atmosphere, and we thought it was hilarious," said Toronto defenseman Justin Holl, who got a smile out of Tavares as the fans taunted him. "I was joking with him. I said, 'At least they forgot [about you].'"

Tavares has handled it with class. I wouldn't have handled it so well, myself lol.

Larry Brooks wrote:Vegas’ signing of Mark Stone to an eight-year contract at an annual $9.5 million per after acquiring the winger from the Senators is yet another illustration of why the league’s extremely favorable rules for the expansion draft were so unfair to the preexisting 30 clubs.

Because, as the first expansion team of the hard cap era, the Golden Knights were always going to have an advantage no other novice entry ever had. They were going to come away from the draft, and their first season, with an enormous amount of cap space with which to retain their own players and woo free agents.

And after constructing a team of scrappy overachievers with chips on their shoulders after having been left unprotected, general manager George McPhee has taken advantage of that benefit. The Golden Knights signed Paul Stastny to a three-year deal worth $6.5 million per after his rental stay in Winnipeg. They signed Jonathan Marchessault, who earned $750,000 last year, to a six-year contract at $5.0 million per. Vegas traded for Max Pacioretty and gave him a four-year extension at $7.0 million per. And now, Stone.

This from a team in a no-tax state that started ahead in that regard, too.

Not to completely derail the the NHL Regular Season Thread, but what the hell is Kate Beckinsale thinking. Pete Davidson? Really? Did she lose a bet or something?

She is on my list of women I'd drop everything for, but yes, this does make her suspect.

So, no swapping spit with her during the Rangers game tomorrow nite. I'm sure she's bored with the whole "Pete" thing.
