I did actually know that, but have never made that joke.

This means Radulov has a couple more weeks off before he needs to resume leg days.

So, I'm guessing the next season will be like a lockout shortened season that starts late?

They are going to try to play the full 82 if they can. Even if games don't start until August, the finals will be done at the end of September. There would need to be a short off-season for free agency, but I bet the new season could be up and running in November to push the season to end a bit later in the summer than usual.

Compressing the off-season would be a rough turnaround for the teams who went deep into the playoffs, but that's unavoidable.

Of course, this all probably falls apart if the virus continues to do what it is doing because they aren't going to want to play an entire 82 game schedule in the secluded hub city style they are wanting to use to finish out this season.

When is this starting? A little disappointed that soccer is kicking our ass and they have the same international player problem.

Yeah, kinda amazing that soccer, the sport of pussies, is playing and we can't even commit to a plan of action.

MLS is a minor league, and the longer they wait, the less likely it is that they ever come back at all. The big leagues that have a little cash on reserve can afford to take their time and figure out how to mitigate the coming revenue shortfalls.

New 3rd jerseys. And a 4th jersey. And a 5th one.

Ryan Reaves re-signed in Vegas. That isn't much in the way of news, but I did learn he is the great-great-great-grandson of Bass Reaves, who is a complete and total badass.

Despite saying they weren't making any changes a few weeks ago, the Sabres have fired Botterill as their GM and also the two assistant GMs. Their new GM is some dude who is a former player and former assistant coach. He seems to have no player personnel experience.

This sounds like the makings of an AMC show that would have heavy promotion and an interesting trailer only to get canceled after one season.

Hmmm. Which is more dangerous defensively: Datsyuk on the PK, or armed Cossacks?

"The lawsuit also alleges that Taylor suffered abuse as a rookie with the Lethbridge Hurricanes in 2008-09."
