    Lovely, I’m flying into DC tonight. Hopefully my flight isn’t cancelled but I am expecting delays.

    Not sure where this should be posted but I guess this is the best thread for it. It’s Slava Malamud so take it with a grain of salt but it’s entertaining if nothing else:

    About to take on our first home owner remodel project. Doing a master bath re-tooling...and adding a bathroom in the basement...at the same time. Glad its happening before the playoffs start...becasue my nerves are going to be shot.

    I hate Malamud and I disagree with a lot of things he says, he pushes his own agenda all the time.

    I think he might be onto something here. SKA gets preferential treatment from the league. I don't mean the kind of preferential treatment Pittsburgh gets in the playoffs, this is far worse. The salary cap isn't enforced on them, that's how they're able to have a loaded team that's good enough to compete with a few NHL teams. I stopped following the KHL this year because SKA was nearly invincible. They were undefeated in the entire first half of the season.

    KHL could be exploding right now, maybe. Reports at various places are a little bit grim. And for some time already.

    But maybe it's for the best. There could be a league with less money and more hockey.

    I’ll say this, in his prime, I only pulled for him in International events. Not that I didn’t respect and admire his game, I was just a Norman and then a Phil guy. Now....I’d like nothing more than to see him win Major’s again. The game needs him to do well.

    Hey folks, I'm visiting from the Sharks board with a quick question. I wasn't sure where to put this, so I settled on the OT thread so as not to mess with any of the others. A handful of posters on the Sharks board have had a lengthy discussion (argument) about the extent to which Eric Fehr has played center. Did he often play center in Washington, or was he generally a winger?

    He was mainly a winger and IMO better suited there, but he had did play center for a bit in Washington to mixed results.

    Fehr centered Ward and Chimera for at least one season and possibly two, if I recall correctly. They were a terrific line.

    Feels like it was parts of a season or two (but I could be remembering incorrectly)...certainly not carried by Fehr’s play. What a disappointment draftee...

    Saw BP was good. What was more excellent was that was middle seat mid depth and every other person there was behind me...was like my personal theater.

    Won't get much work done tomorrow. Crazy how Tiger can make the Valspar Championship feel like the 5th major.

    We need a new Hawking, he's a once in a life time type of genius.

    Stephen Hawking is a role model of mine and while I'm sad to see him go, his mark on this world will never be forgotten. His genius as a physicist is what he's famous for but beyond that he was a great man. He was kind, thoughtful, and his worldview has influenced the way I go about life. He won't be easily replaced in this world.

    Also he brought us this:
