  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

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

  5. Thanks man. We plan to remind her how loved she is a LOT. And we have no interest in using her as a weapon against each other...ever.

  6. 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.

  7. 100%, Hughes should feed him the puck like Єklund (2.3% accurate) in his second goal

  10. Has anyone else just sort of ........checked out? I have almost got used to not watching hockey now. I will 100% be back when it starts again, but I am not sat here longing for it to be back. Especially in some of the formats that have been announced. Also sport without the fans in the stadium does lose some of its meaning. I have seen it with the Premier League, games just feel flat. I am at the point where I could quite happily wait till the season can be done properly.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. Almost the exact same for me. I don't remember my exact age, but I was somewhere between 18-20, and my brother was about 14-16. It was tough, but I believe it was for the best, and I came out of it about as best as could be expected. Fortunately I was off and starting to do my own thing into adulthood, and my brother wasn't far off, so we weren't too traumatized and didn't miss out on a lot of "family" things from a cohesive two-parent household sort of perspective. On the other hand, I actually jumped into a relationship with my now ex who had three of her own when she divorced her childr

  18. Gotta love this one. Evander Kane, a member of the NHL’s Diversity Alliance gets dinged for making a sexist comment in calling Ryan Reaves and his brother “the Reaves sisters”. Proof positive that my man has no clue what “diversity” means. NY Post

  19. The whole thing's a mess. The owners had a crappy deal. The players are right to say "you signed it." But at the end of the day, I'm sure it'll edge to getting a 48 game season in. Public opinion doesn't matter too much, but people don't want to see bickering given the state of the world. With that said - I think owners have the public opinion here. No fans in the seats, what are the owners supposed to do? Take the hit? Could be a huge hit w/o gate revenue.

  20. If they play less games, they should be paid proportionally for the games they play. There should be no other reduction of their pay.

  21. Congrats to MadDog2020 and Daniel. The Dolphins have now beaten the Jets 8 of the last 10 times. Never.... EVER...... did I think I’d live to ever see it get this bad for the Jets, as it is this season.

  22. Absolutely no rush at present. I doubt the NHL is on track for Jan 1 at this point. Keepers and draft will be determined when they announce NHL start.

  27. As an early teen I was a big bruins fan. Orr was the man. Espo was the scoring king. Then they traded him to the rags. And Brad park became a bruin. I couldn't take it and left hockey for 20 years. My wife a huge devils fan started me with the devils in 1995.. but I didn't get serious until I started skating with my son.. But after all that obviously the biggest hockey event was beating the russians in the miracle on ice

  28. 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.

  31. Odds are the RR will be more expensive. I only collect goalie jerseys now, so my options will be both limited and very expensive. The MeiGray prices on GI jerseys are sometimes quite high, and they don’t seem to care. No-name players on the Adidas styles are a minimum of $300, and usually more. But, they are also the only source if you want the real thing. I have bought quite a few over the years, you kind of just have to suck it up and do it.

  33. 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.

  34. Best of luck through the process and of course hoping your daughter escapes with no scars. Certainly will help that she's loved by both side and if you can keep it civil it will help but still a terribly difficult situation having been in her shoes at even a later age. However staying in a broken marriage isn't the answer either so hoping you can find peace and happiness too down the road CR.

  35. Oh damn dude, know it wasn’t a blindside but still isn’t easy, especially with the kiddo. I hope its more amicable than the one I endured as a kid, that sh!t was downright atrocious to be slapped in the middle

  36. Pretty much where I am. This has been a sh!t-storm of a year...and to finish it off, I'm getting divorced (still navigating our way through that one...and it was obvious that things hadn't been right in a long time, so don't want to imply there was any blindsiding from either party...was only a matter of time). But with an awesome 12-year-old involved who did nothing wrong and has tremendous spirit, I just hope this won't break her. Fortunately she's loved equally by Mom and Dad.

  37. 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.

  41. 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

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  44. 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
