There seems to be a lot of false equivalency happening between Babcock and Bill Peters right now. Peters was openly racist towards his players, and other players are saying on twitter that he was physically abusive.

Babcock just seems like a hardass coach.

Haha, some censorship brigade made a little tour here between yesterday night and this morning :-)

About Peters, he has already lost his job and won't find another position in this league, even if no official statement has been made by Calgary's GM. Flames' management cannot allow themselves to let go that kind of story. In the eyes of the public jury, Peters's guilty and won't be rehabilitated anytime soon (well, never in fact).

Yeah, I'm all for firing Peters hard into the sun, but Babcock is just an asshole. That's never been a secret, and you know what you're getting. Peters appears to be a physically abusive racist.

Ha, I should've mentioned autocensorship instead. But I found that funny though.

Now what to do with all this pop-corn...

The Athletic is using the winding down of 2019 as reason to come up with the best team of the 2010s.

For the full league, two Dallas Stars made the list Joe Pavelski as a fourth line winger and Corey Perry as a healthy scratch.

https://theathletic.com/1337887/2019/11 ... cade-team/

For the Stars, Shapiro came up with the following:
Benn-Seguin-Radulov
Eriksson-Spezza-Richards
Morrow-Ribeiro-Sharp
Roussel-Eakin-Ott

Goligoski-Klingberg
Heiskanen-Daley
Lindell-Benn

Bishop
Kari

Makes pretty much sense. But Jordie Benn in the third D pair...?

I would have put Stéphane Robidas instead, the new LHJMQ inductee.

So Ken Holland enabled it. I wonder how much Jim Nill knew.

EDIT: Never mind. Chelios mixed up his timeline.

Regardless, I wonder if Babcock's career is over.

Great read on NHL rules that don't actually exist from DGB. You lawyers will have a field day with some of these:

So is the hockey coach #metoo over? You need more sacrificial lambs if you want your movement to get rid of mean coaches to really catch fire.

I heard Rick Wilson only tipped 4% on the bill at a restaurant once back in 1996. GET HIM.

Time to get out of the woods.

Back in 1990 the coach yelled at me in front of my teammates because I did a dangerous cross-pass in front of the goalie in the defensive zone. That was clearly intimidation and verbal abuse. Plus I was minor at that time so he took advantage of it, like a rape. I'm going to create a twitter account right now and drag him in the mud as deep as I can.

Joe Thornton and Petr Mrazek had a bit of a kerfluffle last night:

Mrazek got a penalty for slashing (even though he didn't touch big Joe) but not for embellishment. At one time, goalies need to stop their circus: they get hammered with 100-mph slapshots, it's ok. But a little fist in the helmet and they turn into soccer players.

Agree, it looked stupid for him to lay there like that. He's wearing a full helmet, so it's not even like he took a punch to the face like normal players might.

Sadly, Bishop probably would've done the same thing.
