  2. I know that. But if the players are expecting sympathy, they can look elsewhere for it is all I’m saying. People aren’t gonna relate. It’s the most first world of first world problems.

  3. I think that was the point, rich people who are still rich arguing with other rich people about money is a bad look when there are people out there who lost jobs, can't find work, and can't afford rent, food, or child care in the event they did have a job. I don't know about you, league minimum is $750,000, anyone with a $750,000 is "rich" in my opinion. Or they should be, I guess its real easy for anyone to spend beyond their means, but still. Not that any of that is the players' fault, but "only" getting $3 million out of your $4 million isn't exactly a struggle. Sure, contracts should

  4. Another day another great performance from Sharangovich. Goal, OT assist, play on the slot in pp goal. Solid PK and PP minutes.

  6. Can’t wait to see him with Hughes. I know we need to pick up a defender at the draft this year but maybe we can somehow get this Єklund (2.3% accurate) kid too.

  8. I don’t know where the idea comes from that anyone who ever plays pro sports should be set for the rest of their life. Sorry, but it doesn’t work that way. If your talent level or injuries leave you playing only 5 years and you make $750k a year, you aren’t set for life. It just doesn’t work that way. You are making plenty of money to put a lot away and have a great start toward retirement, but being a borderline NHL player doesn’t mean you never have to work again, 25% held back or not.

  14. Walsh is a clown. This is the same agent that released that Fleury backstabbing picture about DeBoer during the playoffs that his own client didn't even authorize. I can imagine trying to spin this story one way is his attempt to make the owners look bad because a deferral will likely impact his own personal bottom line since he takes a percentage. If the players are indeed this upset, then they will find themselves on the wrong side of public opinion on this one. Most hockey fans with more than a few brain cells know the league is far more gate-driven than the other major leagues and

  15. For perspective, league minimum next season is $750k. 25% of that is $187,500, leaving $562,500. A guy making $10m for be setting aside $2.5m and still getting $7.5m. Honestly, I don’t feel bad for either guy. Having to scrape by on “only” $562,500 doesn’t seem that bad to me.

  16. I'm a bit over sports with no fans, it was fine to finish out the playoffs but I don't particularly enjoy it. I just watched basically an entire MLS Red Bulls season (they played 2 games before the shutdowns and only 1 home game) with no fans minus a few markets who have been letting in a limited capacity. I missed seeing them live in the playoffs for the first time since 2013 yesterday cause there were no fans allowed, which in the end saved me from watching them lose in the playoffs yet again and I didn't have to stand in the rain and have to drive back from Columbus but I'd easily trade tha

  20. if anything i think "beating up on lesser competition" would be great for his confidence cause he was certainly beat up by better competition last year. Confidence is key. As for the risk of injury... well you can't really go on in life living in fear like this. Plus it's not like the Devils will be contending next season or that we're even assured to have a season, so if he CAN play he should. not playing hockey at his age and in such a transitional period is not any good.

  24. Sorry to hear that man. My parents got divorced when I was 19; my sister was 16. So I’ve been through it from your daughter’s perspective, although I was obviously several years older when I went through it. I’m sure she will be fine. It’s a very tough thing to deal with, but it’s made a bit easier knowing you are equally loved by both parents.

  25. We want it to be amicable for sure. Long and short is that we hadn't been truly happy in many years, and a lot was missing. We want to remain friends and be good parents to our daughter. We both love her more than anything.

  26. Maybe coolr heads will prevail but seriously, fvck both sides. Owners trying to reneg on labor peace we praised them for months ago, and the players crying poverty, granted they JUST got their first checks since April about a month ago. I truly feel for anyone being decimated by COVID due to work and whatnot. This pandemic completely changed how I'm approaching my next stop in a few years after here and I'm almost certainly staying in.

  30. Studenic scores 6 goals and got 3a in 12 games. __________________________________________________ Sharangovic scores another goal. OT this time. I saw some of his games. Didn`t have a time to make records. Anyway what can i say - he play in Coleman type game. PK, puck challange, speed, wrist shot, rolling to the net. __________________________________ Talvitie got his first assist. That was in his third game. _______________________ Gritsyuk scores. 2 goals in his last two games. He is second ppg u20 play in VHL(second adult league in

  31. That may be true, but the point is it’s not a good look to argue over money publicly when so many others have literally lost everything.

  33. I agree with the second part but not the first. The arguing I can do without, but I really miss watching so I can’t say I don’t care what happens. Life goes on either way, obviously, but I still need my fix.

  34. I think they need the gate and without it or with a limited one some or maybe even most would probably prefer they punt the season. Can't say I blame them. I have a hard time sympathizing with the players if they can't understand the conditions now are drastically different than when the agreement was signed. If they want to hold the line and say nah we're not going to negotiate that's fine, kick rocks and enjoy risk not getting paid at all like millions and millions of others in these dire times. I miss hockey but it's pretty far down on the list of priorities in the big picture as in off th

  35. I get they're mad at renegotiating something they thought was signed and over, but there's that whole issue of unprecedented times and stuff going on. Meh, whatever. They can stand on principle, make 0$, and I'll find something else to do. It's safer to just assume it isn't happening until a skate hits the ice at this point.

  37. I got to experience the 2006 Winter Games both men/women tournaments in person while working for NBC. Just a magical few weeks. From watching the women's tournament up close, just being around guys like Jagr prepping his sticks, to having some funny pictures of a beyond drunk Peter Forsberg we ran into at the bars that night post Gold.

  39. When I was a kid (70s), I lived for a few years in Houston. As a German, Hockey was the only local pro sport that my dad could relate to. So we went to a few Houston Aeros games. They were playing in WHA at the time, I remember them playing against the New England Whalers, Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets. I remember my Dad pointing out that there was a playing who was playing together with his 2 sons on one line. That fact really impressed me, but I had no idea that I was watching one of the greatest all time players, Gordie Howe

  40. That's because those two relocations happened in the last 25 years and people still largely remember them. Rockies were 38/39 years ago and Scouts last played 44/45 years ago and were never big draws. There is still a large portion of Devils fans who don't even know anything about the Scouts and Rockies and even fewer people who remember them.

  41. Going to one of my first hockey games at MSG in the early '70's. Toronto vs. Rangers. I think I was in the high greens definitely not the blues. There was a Ranger fan in an Indian Headdress, he was called the Chief. (I don't know what he did but) The section I was in started yelling "F*** You Chief!" The section the Chief was in yelled back "Leave the Chief Alone!" This went on for about 5 minutes. The same game they were about to drop the puck in one of the offensive zones. The arena was dead quiet (no music between stoppages) A guy from the blue section yells to Rangers center Pete St
