    Even though it's the afternoon, it's still Monday. I'll try to do better tomorrow.

    Is Lack hurt or something? How is he not the starter or backup on Binghamton?

    I feel bad for Edmonton, two and a half weeks into the season and they still haven't had their home opener. I also don't get the scheduling for Tampa. Us and Edmonton have only played 3 games, which is understandable because we are the two that went overseas to Sweden, but Tampa has only played 3 games as well, and they also haven't been on the road yet either. Just doesn't make much sense.

    GDT: Sharks @ Devils 1:00 PM MSG+

    Hell yeah! What a great all around effort in that goal. Hall with the nice pass, Sevs (I think) with the nice shot, and Dea in the right position to bang home the rebound. But it all started with that great save by Kinkaid.

    Yeah I typically scroll through the schedule a few days in advance to see if there's any games I might want to catch coming up, particularly on the weekends if I'm either at the bar or in general can just stay up later to watch since I don't have to get up early the next day, and when I saw there were literally zero games on this night I was pretty stunned. Makes absolutely no sense to me. Brand new season, a week in, and they don't have even one game on. Pretty embarrassing and a glaring oversight if you ask me.

    Wow, he was 12 of 13 in faceoffs against Kuznetsov? That's a serious beatdown.

    What an awesome game. That's all I have to say for now.

    I missed the first period, about to tune in now. Palmieri with two more, nice. I hope he gets 93 goals this season.

    35-40% on millions is still pretty awesome. He (and NHLers themselves) can state their facts and preface them with "no lookin for any sympathy" remarks all they want, but when they're making more in one year than what 99% of the people in the world will make in their lifetimes, that's exactly what they're going to get. No one wants to hear or cares that they're getting 35-40% of what they're "supposed" to get according to the deals they've signed. And this is coming from someone who believes in capitalism. Good for them for earning millions of dollars. But I couldn't give two sh!ts that some of them might be getting half of what they otherwise would. It's taxes. We all pay them. I used to get a bonus when I worked at a former employer, and it was taxed at the same 38% rate as anyone else. Difference was mine was maybe a couple thou, I wasn't making millions. Tough sh!t.

    Yeah, complete transformation I bet. I'm not bald, but I started getting gray in my late 20s, and I have a fair amount in my beard, and if I don't put any type of gel or style my hair with something, it goes from what usually looks like a dark brown to it's natural state of what unfortunately is now more gray than anything else.

    Yeah, I was pretty surprised when I read in another thread earlier this week that someone (maybe it was you? lol) said there wasn't much to do in/around the arena, or even Newark in general. You would've thought when they made the move there 10 years ago to the new arena that one of the driving factors was the city being up and coming. I get it takes time, but you'd think a decade later we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    Yeah, I was thinking something like 10 - 20 bucks per person. Maybe limit it to the first 500 or something to keep it manageable. Just thought it would be pretty sweet to give fans a behind the scenes type of look at what goes on inside the building, both on and off gamedays. I can't recall other teams really doing that, but then again I don't really know many other teams' going-on's other than the Lightning, but it might be something that sets them apart.

    I was actually thinking the EXACT same thing. When I saw this picture the first thing that went through my mind after the shock and horror (considering he shouldn't really be losing his hair that badly because he's not that old I don't think, right?) was the fact that he should definitely have shaved that completely and embraced his baldness. Hell, a lot of guys who are balding look like badasses when they shave their head. Shattenkirk just looks horrifyingly creepy in that picture. All that's missing is a set of glasses and a calculator and I would've pegged him for an accountant easily.

    Gotcha. I kinda figured some of those would have been tried already. I think something like an arena tour would be pretty sweet. Come early and make a day out of it, tour the arena for a half hour or hour, stay and have some food, then do the game afterwards. Maybe the fact that it's on a gameday and during the week, and at night, is more of the problem. I know the Lightning did their fan-fest on a Sunday I believe, and I think it was a week or two before the season began. I think they essentially treat it as a "welcome to the new season" type of event, and maybe that's what the Devils are going for too, but if you think about it, it's kind of like back to school night when you're a kid - you get your schedule for the upcoming year, see where your classrooms will be, meet your teachers, etc - you do that before the year begins, not on a day when you have school before or after. I think it works better this way for the team too, because it gets people to come out on a day when they otherwise wouldn't be at the arena. People are already going to spend money on Thursday - on a ticket to the game and probably food and drink - might as well make fan-fest on a non-gameday and get those same people to spend money on food/drinks/merch on a day when there's no game.
