Motion to remove the word “regular” from this thread title. Ain’t nothin’ regular about this season.

On one hand, sure Laine doesn't look happy to be there. On the other hand, the same can be said for a lot of Finns even if you know they are happy to be there.

I'm not sure anyone is really happy to be in Winnipeg.

Was just a matter of time, really. Doesn't really bother me.

Sure, whatever. I can see how anything to generate revenue would be good for all sides.

The MassMutual division naming rights worked on me. Because I just Googled what East division is all about.

Apparently life insurance or some *poo poo*.

Now I am newly aware of the brand "MassMutual". Good purchase for them.

Like with removing Roenick, I think they watched their product and realized, "No one misses him because he brings nothing to the broadcast."

But man... no Roenick, no Milbury, no Pang, no Doc... It's Christmas all over again.

Do we even need commentators? Maybe just a few canned phrases like "he shoots!" and "big save!" They already have those recorded for video games. Time to start trimming expenses, and large talent salaries is where I'd start if I was triaging a dying business.

Yeah apparently he’s going to start on their taxi squad. He’s literally signed to the league minimum (750k prorated with no bonuses) so why not just *fargin'* claim him? We know he fits in here ...

His list of dependents tells the story. When you’re supporting five adults, your money will disappear very fast.

Jay Bouwmeester retired.

https://theathletic.com/2316196/2021/01 ... r-retires/

I always thought of him as just a dude, but 1,240 regular season games, 3 world juniors, 4 word championships, 2 World Cups, and 2 Olympics (plus a Stanley Cup). That's really impressive.

Plus he had quite the ironman streak going too, didn’t he?

Yup, 737 straight games.
