  2. I don't know about you guys, but it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing the Wild accomplished exactly fvck-all after spending all that money on those two guys.

  4. So since the other thread is being dominated (rightfully so) by today's offseason action, I figured I'd come here to post this (and fvcking brag): With the embarrassment that Chicago is, and the other conversations we've had on this board about people feeling empowered to come forward to report things, I could not be any more proud of a group of individuals who essentially work under me. Something happened, they reported it to me, within an hour it was being handled by my bosses. I told them I was beyond proud they had the confidence in both myself and those above me to take care of the problem while also protecting them and that it showed their trust. God felt freaking good.

  5. I don't get the sentiment that we need to get rid of Subban like the dude has the plague. He hasn't been spectacular but I don't see why some people are in such a rush either.

  9. https://theathletic.com/2738062/2021/07/29/the-best-and-worst-deals-from-the-first-day-of-nhl-free-agency/ The “Best” Deals There weren’t many Actually Good signings, but some were better than others enough to count and there were a number of cheap deals with some promise. Before we get to the trainwreck, here are some of the bright moments from the opening day of the frenzy. Dougie Hamilton: It’s not often the most lucrative contract of the day is the best one. Generally, there’s a good chance it’s the worst. That’s not the case with Hamilton who has long been underrated by Hockey Men everywhere and is now on a potential good value deal as a result. The fact he was paid $500K per season less than Seth Jones is truly bewildering given the past two seasons for both players. Hamilton is better than Jones. Full stop. There was maybe an argument for it before last season, but not anymore. I will not be listening to anything suggesting the contrary. At $9 million per, the expectation for Hamilton is to be a two-win defender through the life of the deal. He’s at 3.2 wins to start and should be worth 2.6 on average when taking his age into consideration, giving him a strong cushion to be worth his lofty price tag. He’s a unique player with only one comp so it’s hard to judge exactly how he’ll age, but that one comp is Brent Burns who was still pretty damn effective in his early 30s. There is a good chance public models overrate Hamilton’s impact and I don’t want to downplay that. But everywhere he goes and plays, he earns elite results and that’s been at both ends of the ice the last two seasons. Hamilton finished fourth in Norris Trophy voting last season and should continue to be in contention for the next few years. He’s a true No. 1 defenceman, an elite one at that, and that’s worth the price of admission here. Hamilton’s deal comes in with a surplus value of $18.8 million over the life of the deal leaving plenty of room for error if the model is indeed overrating him. It’s also far and away the most surplus value of any deal on the day. The Devils benefit greatly from an unfair and undeserved reputation. Hamilton is the real deal. Edit: I give up on formatting

  10. Sounds like he’s ok. We can confirm Bob is in stable condition after experiencing a heart related incident. He and his family would like to express gratitude for the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, as well as his cast, crew and producers who have stayed by his side. The Odenkirks would also like to thank everyone for the outpouring of well wishes and ask for their privacy at this time as Bob works on his recovery.

  12. I have a soft spot for Butcher since he choose to sign here in a time no one else would. I hope he figures it out and gets back to that promising play he had when he first got here. He never would have gotten to play at this point.

  22. currently legitimately lol’ing about the Rangers signing of Goodrow. 15 team no trade clause and ~$4m/year for 6 years for a bottom-6 player who just had the only good professional season of his life (playing on the best team in the past several decades)? that’s the type of deal that is so, so, so horribly bad. it’s a FLAT CAP and they are going to need to sign their big boys sooner than later. I watched a ton of Lightning games this year because I’ve been growing as a fan of them living so close to Tampa. This would be like the Devils giving Stephen Noesen a 6 year contract with an NTC after his solid year. Goodrow is a tough, hardworking 3rd/4th line grinder who will be 29 next season. SIX years. Holy fvcking sh!t lol

  24. That player would have still earned their right to spend a day with the Cup last year, so I don’t see the problem.

  25. I would be upset to lose Subban. He’s a reliable top-4 defenseman who’s owed only $2m in real cash this year, easily tradable with money retained at the deadline if the Devils aren’t competing. that would be a tough asset to lose for free

  27. “Thanks to @consolecrew for my new gamepads. “ this looks like he was interested in his devils career. I was thought the same after his interviews. Hope he will be lucky and bold enough to create his avalanche career.

  28. I can absolutely see Seattle taking Subban now, and — if that’s the case — I’d be disappointed. He isn’t the PK Subban of old, but he’s a good solid hockey player and shouldn’t simply be replaced by a guy like Siegenthaler or a bleh UFA.

  31. The Rangers betting their future on a guy who is about to have highly experimental neck surgery sounds classic. I'd almost be more worried if they didn't do it.

  32. It definitely wasn’t real until that point. I wrote the builder a $30,000 deposit check, and that wasn’t real enough. Seeing the house destroyed was like, “OK, we’re really doing this”.. another interesting fact, we had a roof leak that we simply could not locate, and the whole roof needed to be replaced. We had put it off multiple times, trying to patch things, because we knew we wanted to do a roof raise anyway. The night before we moved out, there was a huge thunderstorm end it leaked so bad that the wood floor upstairs just outside of our bedroom, where there was no air-conditioning because we had window units, actually got warped from the water and the heat. That would have been horrific and costly, but instead we just walked out the door and said fvck it, we don’t need that floor anymore anyway. I will post another fun picture. We were at the house the night before renovations were about to start, taking down fixtures, and doing some last minute stuff. We didn’t really know what to do with my daughter at that time, because there was no TV, and all her stuff had been moved out. So we gave her a box of crayons that my wife used to carry in her bag and brought her to her bedroom. We gave her the biggest blank wall there was and told her that one time, and one time only she can absolutely go fvcking nuts on the wall. All these years later, she still talks about how fun that was.

  34. For some context, I'm just copying and pasting my post for this on hf where there were quite a few posts not thinking that it was a big deal... I don't know why things need to be compared to situations that are even worse but I think it's a shame a lot of people just think this stuff isn't a big deal or it's simply just what a lot of kids do these days. I know its mostly guys on these boards but even if you dont have a daughter / don't want kids / aren't a girl/woman you should be able to at least have empathy and understand that once these photos/videos get online they stay there forever unless you're insanely lucky to have them not remain out there. If they remain out there it's something that can follow her for the rest of her life, be something even her kids can see if their peers find them and harass them with them. It's really a dangerous slope. Seems like schools nowadays could really benefit for having a class that shows what kind of damage sharing on social media can cause for one's future.

  36. This oughta make people hate him less. Say what you want about him (and the Lightning's "circumvention" tactics), but he's pretty hilarious. He definitely takes the hate/criticism in stride, and embraces it.
