That's a stupid question if I ever heard one. The contents of those mental notes are nobody's business but his.

Norm’s sensitivity meter, despite his (I’m sure sincere) empathy for humans is really out of whack and has been forever.

I know we're supposed to be all jaded and trash the Stars, but Johns' story and comeback was really the highlight of the season for me. Not just that he actually made it back after almost 2 years out, but that he came back and is still good at hockey and is like a freight train on the ice. Watching him absolutely hammer the puck from the blue line right after he just blew some guy up reminds me of everything I really enjoy about hockey.

Bones didn’t really want to be a Head Coach even in the before times. I wonder if he walks.

He was enjoying the head coach role, but COVID-19 is more dangerous for older individuals, so yeah, probably not worth it.

So if Bones walks for the "playoffs", I guess Stevens becomes our third HC this "season"? *Dang ol'* should they regret not hiring Gallant when they had the chance(s).

He absolutely deserves the Masterton but will lose it to Bobby Ryan for being a boozehound.

Isn’t Stevens interviewing for head coaching gigs elsewhere?

Look, Ottawa needs this, okay? Johns doesn't really want the attention anyway.

I don’t see him caring, but his heart may have not been into it from the beginning so it may be a good excuse.

We did the boozehound thing with Lehner last year.

Logged in to my "virtual" seat relocation event for my Stars season tickets. Man, there are a lot of available seats in the lower bowl.

If you're a company laying people off and cutting salary, how do you then justify buying premium seats to sporting events?

The only way to find out is to pick the hub cities, put these guys in the bubbles, test the crap out of them, and wait to see if the virus can get into the bubble.

Just infect them all now and then let them play in a few weeks. I demand entertainment.

Sure a couple of weaker ones might die but you can be assured they play for the Red Wings.
