  1. There was only a 2.5 % chance that they would pick the placeholder spot for a play-in loser to get first pick... Bettman did it...
  2. Congrats to Iggy... Without a doubt he deserves to be in the HHOF... But Lowe getting in and not Fleury?... Absofugginlutely ridiculous...
  3. Fleury should have already been in the HHOF quite a while back... It's way overdue... Aside from his achievements on the ice, for several years now he has put a lot of time, effort and money into his Little Warriors organization as well as a good number of other charities and community organizations... He deserves to be inducted more than a lot of players that already have been... and he has more than earned the recognition of being included...
  4. Good ol' Lost Wages Nevada... Perfect choice... With an average temperature of 41 to 40 Celsius for the summer months, the ice should be terrific... Although I suppose that it does drop all the way down to 36 for September...
  5. Flames looking into holding training camp in U.S. to avoid quarantine rule https://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/1976516/flames-looking-into-holding-training-camp-in-u-s-to-avoid-quarantine-rule But, as Treliving mentions in the article, they are not in a hurry to make a decision as that might not work out very well either... If they have their camp in the states and then they end up playing in a Canadian hub the whole team would have to quarantine for 2 weeks as soon as they came back to Canada... Maybe the best solution would be to bring the non-Canadian players across the border as temporary foreign workers, hold a full camp in the dome, and then just call it a protest against double standards... Maybe then even junior would show up for the photo op and take a knee in solidarity...
  6. What should we expect when we have a Prime Minister that not only condones a protest that is technically illegal under the current raccoon virus rules, but also participates in it... I say it's time to open things up a bit more... Of course we must continue to protect the vulnerable and those that are most at risk, and also respect those who chose to continue to isolate or want to keep their distance from others... But if you can have a protest that involves basically the same number of people that would attend a hockey game and that is acceptable, the double standard of allowing one and not the other has to end... This pic is from the protest in Edmonton yesterday...
  7. Over 15.000 at the protest in Edmonton yesterday, maybe half of them wearing masks, and distancing was not happening as they were standing shoulder to shoulder... Yet hockey teams can only have 6 players on the ice at one time... I call shenanigans... It's double standard bullSatoshi...

    It was IN.

    There was 2 inches of white ice between the puck and the goal line... It was IN...
  9. I thought that I would post that article after I came across it while I was having a coffee this morning... It seems like it is pretty rare to come across anything positive while looking through the news theses days, as the whole world seems to be going to Satoshi... and as stupid as it is that they will finally get back to hockey in the middle of the summer, I will be watching and cheering our team on... and I also think that they can eliminate the Jets in this best-of-five series...
  10. Sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark have the Flames as favorites in the best-of-five series against the Jets... https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/nhl-western-conference-series-odds-canadian-matchup-tap/
  11. Been playing a lot more guitar lately to stay amused, picked up a really nice Koa wood Ovation Celebrity Elite acoustic... and a little Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 18 and a H & K cab with a single Vintage 30 in it so I can pick up one of the electrics and play without driving the neighbors crazy since they are all home most the time these days... Been wondering about how Cowtown is doing too, I hope that he's been getting through this raccoon virus ok...
  12. from: https://www.nhlpa.com/news/1-21858/nhlpa-statement-on-return-to-play-format "The Executive Board of the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) has authorized further negotiations with the NHL on a 24-team return to play format to determine the winner of the 2020 Stanley Cup. Several details remain to be negotiated and an agreement on the format would still be subject to the parties reaching agreement on all issues relevant to resuming play."

  13. NHL, NHLPA working on 24-team conference-based playoff setup... https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/nhl-nhlpa-working-24-team-conference-based-playoff-setup/ 31 Thoughts: Player vote underway on NHL playoff system... https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/31-thoughts-whats-holding-nhl-playoffs-proposal/
