I’ve shared that photo with Cody before. It’s one of my all time favorites.

The Avs defense has big leaks, Colorado can't rely on a decent back-up goalie to unload the already struggling Georgiev, so who is reportedly signing with them: Good ol' Zach Parisé, of course.

It took me a while to figure out. Beyond being strange, it's ugly.

Yeah at least they didn't puzt their current logo on the black design. Pretty sharp I'd say.

(Not like the Islanders outdoor game jersey...)

I wonder how different suspensions would go if, instead of appointing goons to run the office, they picked guys who were victims of headshots like Kariya or Turgeon.

The Gallagher hit ranks a solid 8/10 on Bure's Mother Of All Elbow scale and got approximately all checkboxes. I watched it live and even the stupid biased Habs broadcasters immediately called it as dirty and insane. T oadd a bit of context, that hit occurred shortly after a hard but clean hit from Clutterbuck on Harvey-Pinard. So Gallagher wanted to do the same, with that result...

And yeah, maybe stop hiring enforcers like Quintal or Parros at that position.

Maybe he also wanted to use this as cover to take a mental break from coaching the Sharks.

Would be pretty funny if he's found hanging out at a beach resort for a few weeks.

Call it woke or whatever you want, but I am on Daley's side here. Vanbiesbrouck is a piece of *poo poo*.

Is anyone calling this woke? I mean, among normally situated, rational people? JVB dropped the nbomb on him, right?

So Vanbiesbrouck is not short by his size, but as whole, isn't he ?

Hockey Diversity Alliance? Aren’t they the ones that took a knee in the bubble one time and then declared Mission Accomplished?

I'm sure plenty are. I tend to fall on the side of "so someone said some dumb, vaguely offensive *poo poo* on Twitter 10 years ago, who care?" side of things for a lot of stuff.

But Vanbiesbrouck dropped the n-bomb on Daley in 2003. There's no walking that back, and that goes well beyond making a stupid Twitter joke.

"Attends to his mental health" is a weird way to say "deals with being charged for sexual assault."

Never heard of him.

Although I'm past the point of automatically thinking sexual assault allegations on professional athletes are legit.

He was part of the 2018 Canadian junior team that's been the subject of many headlines lately.

I think I heard this was the "gang rape" thing.
