I'm pretty sure at least one of those goals was against Kari.

Is Chiarelli the one who signed Lucic to that deal?

That deal is moronic.

Didn't we try to overpay him too?

DGB did a list of 21 biggest underperforming stars in the NHL, and ... not a single Star made the list:

The Stars are so nondescript of a team that they barely make any lists for anything. If I were Gaglardi, that would frustrate me a lot that the team basically gets zero mentions or press on any level outside of Dallas.

My point was that for all the *poo poo* Benn takes on this board, 9 points in 11 games is still 9 points in 11 games. And that's a hell of a lot more than some teams are getting from their $10 million-a-year guys.

How many wins has that translated into?

The wins are all that matters, really.

Also, don't look now but Halak has become the starter in Boston LOL. But so did Khudobin early last year.

Tampa Bay sure does hand out a lot of longer term contracts. They're going to be interesting to watch.

The Coyotes' penalty kill has given up three goals, while scoring seven (7) shorthanded goals so far.

The other day Dustin Brown scored a goal, which made me think, man he's been in the league forever, he must be retiring soon. I soon learned he is only 33.

Duchene isn’t wrong though. But yeah, it was 99% certain that he was going to leave at the end of the season. Now it’s 100% and we’ll see if he even makes it to the TDL. Also, you gotta love the turds acquired in San Jose’s inferior package already talking *poo poo*. You reap what you sow.

So reigning Vezina winner Rinne has been extended 2-years at 5 per. That’s damn good value, and should help make Saros’ transition to starter even smoother. It’s another Vokoun-Rinne situation. Nashville has always been spoiled in goal.

No one looks good in an Avs jersey. Hands-down the ugliest jerseys in sports.

I wouldn't hold this against them. Literally, everyone mocks their bosses at some point. We just happen to live in an Orwellian age in which there are cameras everywhere recording every little thing you do which, to me, is the real issue.

In an ESPN podcast, Luc Robitaille commented about the potential of gambling related revenue resulting in savings for the fans. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

But Robitaille believes that the revenue created around sports wagering -- advertising, sponsorships and the like -- could be so considerable that the savings might be passed on to the fans.

The baseball versions are almost universally better.

The Royals jersey is so ugly I’d buy it tomorrow.

I kind of like the Cowboys one.

Love the Texas Rangers one, though. Looks sharp.
