Yeah but....what does it say about the poppies? How is this impacting them?
How are they getting stiffed?? They are using play in series because teams 9-12 could have gotten in if the season went 82, TB could have passed Boston, maybe phili passes Washington. Same principle. Besides we all know seeding in the NHL holds much less value then other sports. Cherry becomes less credible every time he opens his mouth IMO
good read, tough read.
If you’re a parent sending your kid away to live in that world, how can you not be terrified?
I had plenty of hazing growing up playing hockey. Nothing as extreme in his article. But it was definitely part of the culture to toughen the rookies up for a full contact sport.
I guess that’s one way to try and toughen someone up.....not something I would want for my kid.
Great news out of Philly today.
Read a bit of Mogilny talk for HHoF today but was kind of shocked he didn't manage 500 goals. He didn't play 1000 games but still.
The never-ending tough scene of inducting guys like Kevin Lowe and ignoring any hockey played outside of North America apart from 1972 is, well... tough.
Lowe probably got in because he has six Stanley Cups but yeah, tough to see.
Climate Pledge Arena.....lol.....terribad.
he was a beast of a player defensively.....and yeah Cups galore. He was a bust after....but shouldn’t muddy his accomplishments on ice.
his peaks were a joy but longevity often matters for the HOF debate.
Was Hossa really that much better then Bondra? If he didn’t go full LeBron chasing champions he wouldn’t have got in
Hossa was an elite two way player.
Bondra was not.
In other words, Lowe got in because he was teammates with Messier and Gretzky.
Is there a contending team this salarcy cap news means less to than the Caps? Tampa may need to move someone, sure feels like the LEafs will, not to mention upcoming RFAs...
Off the top of my head Pittsburgh seems like they're in good shape as well. Schultz, Marleau, and Sheary will clear up $9.2mm in cap space after this year, Bjugstad clears up another $4.1mm next year (assuming he's not traded this summer), and they don't need to re-sign Geno until 2022-23. They could also find a taker for Matt Murray if they want to roll with Jarry in net.
Washington is in good shape assuming no one making big money falls off a cliff. Anyone will be in trouble with albatross contracts as it's going to be very difficult to find partners who can take on bad contracts. I wonder if they allow a special CBO or two if it is indeed announced that the cap will remain flat for three more years.
yeah Bondra aside, borderline pick for me...but he’s got 500/1100, 1300 GP, never really a Selke contender, but sniffed it a few times. I’d give him the nod probably....
ummm is pitt getting the first pick?
Well that was gloriously stupid.
Please let it be Edmonton.
The NHL needs new leadership. I'm not sure what I've been reading and I'm perplexed. It's going further down the rabbit hole.
because of a draft lottery? that's an overreaction.
