Welp. We can go back to hating him again LOL.
Yeap, probably too many orange cones in MTL. Next season, TB will lose in the SC final to counter-balance the Maroon syndroma.

Perry would have been ok but he’s a little too speedy for the current roster. Think we can trade to get Spezza back?

I mean it's awesome if it eventually works but if it doesn't he sucks.

Is he the one whose dad was a dick? Or was that someone else?

Pro sports is such a different way of life these days. They are monitoring food and sleep in ways we never imagined.

I remember a dude who worked at a restaurant in Coppell saying the Ludwig era Stars had a team dinner and drank all of the beer taps dry. And this was during the season.

Zubov smoked a pack a day. That's just insane to me.

What Kessel and Brett Hull and Ovechkin can do while out of shape is very difficult to replicate.

I remember meeting him at Eckerd years ago when he came in to get a prescription. Dude stepped outside and had a cigarette while my friend and I were out there smoking, but he was very very quiet and shy. We didn't speak. Only said hello and sort of left him alone. He does not like being recognized in public.

I kind of suspect that none of those three guys were absolute dicks to their teammates in practice if they missed a pass by one *Dang all Get out* centimeter.

I know for a fact that none of the Stars do that because they’d never stop complaining.

With the Nurse contract getting done, it does make the Heiskanen contract look even better.

Nurse is a perfectly fine player. I suspect this contract is a result of a typo by the Oilers. There’s no way they meant to pay him that much.

I'm not going to look it up, but I suspect Nurse is the first decent d-man the Oilers have drafted and developed since the 80s.

I actually didn't realize he was good. Because he plays for the Oilers.

Carolina is firing back at Montreal for the offer sheet the Habs signed Ago to.

Firing shots at another team’s hockey decisions seems like something that would get a young twitter coordinator fired most places

Also the Canes need to change their team name out of respect for about-to-be-annihilated Lousiana.

As long as you can piss off the Habs, I'm fine with that.
