In Topic: Clarkson to Jackets for Nathan Horton

What a disastrous two yeara for him.

And for Columbus. They already had something like 350 man games lost to injury. Now with Clarkson out for the rest of the season, you gotta think they're closing in on some sort of NHL record for number or games lost due to injury. Absolutely crazy how many players they had on their starting roster have been injured for significant time this season.

Nobles lost their tournament game. Looks like Miles Wood's final stat line is: 17 GP 17-18-35. Given that he stayed in HS at age 19, I imagine he'll spend 4 years at BC and the hit free agency. Anyway, how long do the Devils have his rights for? Just 2 more years (his FR and SO years) or am I wrong? I always get confused since some guys that don't go to college right away (spend a year in Jr. A or USHL) then stay in college for all 4 years, seem to still have their rights owned by the team that drafted them, even though that's 5 years later.

I thought that a team held the rights of their NCAA prospects until 30 days after they leave college.

It would seem that if that weren't the case that teams would kinda get cheated as they'd not have had the opportunity to have the player under direct control of the organization in the way that they would with a player coming out of junior that then plays for a team's AHL affiliate.

Why is this necessary? There's no need to call him a moron.

The show clearly has a liberal bias, albeit one that has no business being placed on a pedestal as some sort of equal counterweight to Fox News' clear conservative bias, and if you're on the opposite end of the political spectrum it's possible that the show would be unappealing.

Maybe you can say he has no sense of humor since you pretty much have to lack one to not enjoy the Daily Show, but stooping to name calling over a difference in politics is the exact thing that Jon Stewart railed against in the clip I posted as well as his entire career hosting his show.

I won't post anymore after this because I don't want this to turn into a big political debate. I just want to post the clip of Crossfire I mentioned since this is Jon Stewart at his best imo.

I am not going to compare Fox News to the Daily Show. Both have their agendas on opposite ends of the spectrum so this would be a never-ending debate.

What is concerning is there were a few surveys done a couple years back asking where those in the 18-39ish age range get their news from. Outside of the Internet and social media, the Daily Show was next on the list. Yes, young adults put a fake comedy news program ahead of other traditional media.

Also Stewart is very overrated. A large majority of his "comedy" is lines fed to him by a teleprompter. He wasn't that great of a comedian before and he won't do much afterwards. I would also argue that for the first few years he was being propped up by Colbert and Carrell with the later being far more successful in his career post Daily Show.

However I might watch tonight because it is Slava. Would be interesting to hear what he says.

I have no interest in debating the merits of Fox news either since like you say that's a debate that goes on forever, but I have to disagree with your assessment of Stewart. Whether most of his show's bits are written for him or not, he's still a very intelligent and funny person. I've seen him appear on many other shows, mostly news programs, where he's absolutely hilarious and can outsmart most of the hosts of those shows. A great example is when he was a guest on crossfire in 2004 I think it was, he was great and completely tore apart Tucker Carlson.
