Doesn’t matter with McDavid. Whatever he does isn’t gonna hold a candle to the 80’s and his point totals are truncated cause of the 56 game season. There’s no asterisk because there’s not really an *achievement*. Same with matthews.

What’s the move there. Like it’s a combination of predicting that a pass is coming and also seeing the recipients head turn?

I don’t remember him failing at it.

mcdavid made the correct face when edmonton won the lottery.

nobody watches his games so nobody cares or knows what the refs are up to.

If Tanev is exposed, he will be taken. He’s the perfect player to be Seattle’s first captain.
Yeah. His contract is a good thing not a bad thing now.

The Stefanik story is doing a great job at reminding everyone that Trump wasn't actually impeached for the Ukraine episode, and Stefanik wasn't right there with Gaetz and Jordan the whole time and Cheney wasn't completely complicit in enabling 1/6 a year in advance. I'm glad I dreamt all that. Every...

If we lose to the bruins, ok. Like, not great but better than losing to Isles and/or Caps. I don't think that team is really that dislikable anymore. Despite Marchand. I actually think Chara and Krug bothered me a lot more in recent years.

...but we shouldn't be losing to the Bruins

Tanev's contract, today, is a bargain. No use planning around a theoretical decline.

High character physical player on multi year deal is what an expansion team should be looking for. I'd be more worried about him being scooped up than Bleuger.

Sign me up for the Puckett/Gwynn fan club. Short chubby polite guy with a high batting average is the sweet spot for a 10 year old I guess. Puckett's like Marvin Harrison in that you just assumed he was a nice guy all over the place because he seemed like such a gentleman. But no. Very much not the ...

The explanation I've heard is that the leagues want the on-ice/field officials to be able to explain for themselves, to the coach on the bench, why a call was made. If they simply say "because sky judge" then the officials on the playing surface lose their autonomy and their control of the game. Th...

replays in any sport require a deeper financial investment from the league. there should be a headquarters watching every moment of every game, and when a call for a replay is triggered, HQ should have the resolution ready before the phone even gets picked up. you need a bunch of talented bodies on ...

I’d categorize myself as a hockey purist. I don’t want the game fiddled with. Don’t fiddle. No need to fiddle. 3 on 3 OT is a good fiddle. The OT/SO framework requires more fiddling, though. not done yet. replays are useful if executed correctly. a good fiddle gone wrong, but correctable with more ...
