  1. Talking about bringing up young d men, I was always surprised back in 2000 when Colin White came up in March, played 21 regular season games and 25 post season games. So I looked his record up. Colin played over 200 games in Albany waiting for that opportunity. Ty Smith will not have that kind of time to learn his trade, apparently. Not sure if Nas is the best coach to bring him along, though.
  2. And the Stars come back from down 3-1 . That was a game that shows what is needed to win the Cup. Regardless of which team you expected to win.
  3. Shots Flyers 17 Isles 41 Score tied at 4. Hockey is a crazy game.
  4. I find myself withdrawing from a lot of current news. Even international news is just too depressing. I've never read so much of the NYT arts section before. Political discourse has become exhausting, and I have grown up breathing politics. And I doubt the environment will change on November 4th.
  5. Unfortunately, on the political side, the "poverty industry" really hasn't done jack s##t for the people they supposedly represent. Just another decades long war we as a country have not won, the war on poverty, drugs, blah blah blah. No wonder we as a country have become jaded. We expect politicians to solve problems they really have no control over. We the people have to solve these problems, not politicians.
  6. Having an open conversation about race with black people after a certain age is probably impossible. In 1968 when I was in high school I had a conversation with a coworker. He was president on the local high school student body, this was a small town (very small). Blacks were a small but integrated part of the community. My Mom had black girls in the Girl Scout troop she led. Anyway, talking with Tyrone about the riots in Newark and Plainfield, Tyrone just lowered his eyes and said "Bill, you just don't understand". The pain in his voice and the look on his face told me I will never understand
  7. Didn't Madden lead the league in shorthanded goals with 6 one year, IIRC?
  8. And I apologize for the ad hominem crack. My self control has been under strain lately.
  9. What does "they lose the hunger " mean? You actually did NOT say " a lot goes into why a team so rarely repeats". I thought your comment was pretty dismissive of any team that does not repeat.
  10. Except that they also play 25 more, very intense, games. And players play thru injuries they would otherwise be recovering from. A long Cup run takes a huge toll on the players' mental and physical health. Do you actually watch these games?
  11. Milbury must have pictures of someone at NBC. I have no ideas why he continues to get work. He adds nothing to the studio conversation. Maybe he works for free, or pays them to let him show up.

    Bingeing on hockey

    Listening to Doc do the Chicago/Vegas game. Third game of the day. Doc makes the game a real experience. He is a treasure.
  13. As far as the team name is concerned, I would have liked Jersey Blues, referring to pre Revolutionary war regiment, but that was already taken. Considering New Jersey's part in technological innovation, ie recorded sound, radio, communication advances, transistors, identifying the big bang, hell, even duct tape, antibiotics, polio vaccine, oh, just shut me up. How about the New Jersey Makers? That might unite the West Jersey crowd, you know, Trenton makes, the world takes.
