With Ontario-Québec arenas now allowed to have games at full capacity, let's try to catch games in TOR or MTL in March, maybe at a """""decent""""" price...

I doubt you'll see a decent Price by then.

So I signed up to use NordVPN as I did not want to use Russian owned ExpressVPN anymore. Well apparently Hulu is wise to Nord's servers as I twice had my feed stopped to be warned by Hulu that I was using a VPN. FInally turned on Obfuscated Servers option to get it to finish the game but I'm not sure it'll keep working for the whole season.

Guess I'll just sign up for Directv Stream and cancel my YouTubeTV. So dumb I have to do this even though I have the Disney+ plan that also gets me Hulu and ESPN+. Deregulated streaming kinda sucks honestly.

If I manage to find a uzbek VPN that streams Stars games in Korean with laugh tracks, I cancel my NHL.tv subscription right now.

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby told the Washington Post in 2016 he can lose 10-13 pounds during a game despite drinking 16-17 liters of liquid on a game day.
https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/ca ... 6-8-pounds
"
Clearly the guy who sweats the most... is Braden Holtby. [He's] the one we have to watch a lot on the long, hard practices" Reirden said during his weekly appearance on the Sports Junkies. "He'll lose six to eight pounds on a practice."

A majority of the loss is water weight so it doesn't normally affect the player's overall health. Typically that weight can be gained right back once hydrated and energized after practice.

But still, shredding that much weight in a short span of time can be dangerous for a player. During practices, the players have heart rate monitors and are closely observed by the trainers to ensure the athletes are not pushed past their limits. Strengths coaches and performance coaches are also involved heavily in the process

Well, I'd like a lot to lose 6 to 8 lbs. during a single practice.

As much as that contract would end up looking bad several years from now, the alternative is watching Lindell dump pucks into the corner on the PP for the next few years while Harley flames out.

Klingberg is definitely worth $7.5MM or so. 8 years would be tough but I don’t think it would age quite as badly as some other contracts.

Also, over/under on an in-season firing of Bowness? Nill has never fired a coach for hockey reasons.
