    I guess so lol. I managed a small bag of flour in my local supermarket, and only a small bag of Target brand brown rice. Who the fvck is like “I’m quarantined, I’m going to eat a sh!t ton of rice to survive”?

    Rice lasts forever, and it goes a long way. One of the best things to have other than can goods honestly.

    This is the weirdest sick i’ve ever been. Woke up this morning and told my wife i was about 15 minutes away from needing a hospital. It felt like i had been running wind sprints. 

    Within 5 minutes of saying that, i felt okay-ish. 2 hours later i felt like i was completely and totally over it except for lingering throat and lung discomfort. Now i’m back in bed wondering if i’m going to need a hospital. 

    Stay the fvck home. 

    Scary stuff. I can’t even imagine how the elderly people that have it are doing if someone young like you feel that bad. 


  3. Remember what Shero said to him...

    Reilly Walsh started laughing when New Jersey Devils general manager Ray Shero told him immediately after he drafted him that his upcoming college career at Harvard was going to be the “best three years” of his life.

    To be fair, if I was going to Harvard, even if I was playing hockey, I’d want that degree too. I can’t imagine going to Harvard for 3 years and then saying , nah, I’m cool. 

    Especially where you know you can stay another year and still go to the pros...assuming you don’t get hurt. But if you do get hurt, might be nice to have a Harvard degree to fall back on. 

    He could have signed in NJ and still finished his degree (online).

    Should they have awards with an incomplete season?  

    I think so. 70 GP is plenty. The only one I care about is Mac getting some Calder votes. He should be 3rd place.

    I don't think things will be back to normal but I also think most people thought the summer was kind of a long shot anyway-- especially for an event like the Olympics where thousands of people from all over the globe converge in 1 place. It doesn't surprise me, anyway.

    Yeah, the only surprise was that they waited so long to announce it.

    Hold on.............why can't Arizona finish 4th and then we get it?  

    Yet some of these say they can be 1.......but not 4?

    What gives?

    They can win the lottery and have picks 1, 2, or 3, but if they don’t win we get the pick and the highest their it can be is 10 and lowest 13 (you can only drop back 3 spots). It’s based off where they finished.

    The Olympics being postponed has more to do with the qualifying events that were supposed be going on currently and up until almost the start of the Olympics being postponed as well. Training as well. Having to push all these events back would push it into a fall/winter Olympics so it just makes more sense to just postpone it to next year at this point. 

    True, but I don’t know that things will really be back to normal by this summer. Although the warm weather is supposed to help slow it down, but unfortunately it sounds like it would just come right back in the fall.

    How did Arizona do in those simulations?

    The very first sim they ran ARI ended up with 1st pick, which would suck. 

    The worst one was a scenario where the Rags won the 1st and we fell all the way back to 9. Which would be catastrophic.

    Supposed deep draft, and Devils with 3 picks  in the 1st?  Thank you Fitz!  

    One of those picks is from Shero (for Hall).

  11. The Athletic ran a draft simulation 100 times on Tankathon and we ended up with a lottery pick 25 times, and the #1 12 times. Which is crazy with only the 6th best odds. I can’t wait to see how this all shakes out. I haven’t even let myself entertain the idea of winning the #1 again, but I would be ecstatic to even land the 2nd or 3rd.

    What’s sad is that we now realize that in a lot of cases, those who fought weren’t necessarily primitive goons who got off on trading fisticuffs...that was simply their way of trying to stay in the NHL, due to not having enough talent otherwise.  I saw a doc on fighters a while back, and I forget the player, but one in particular spoke of how miserable he would be when he would look at the upcoming schedule and think “OK, I gotta fight that guy, then that one, then that one...and my knuckles are already a mess and are going to be even worse after these next few games...”   Rough way to make a living, and as we’ve seen, after their careers are over, the pain doesn’t end with retirement.

    Probert was a little before my time, as he was finishing up his career right around the time I got really into the NHL, but apparently he had a decent amount of skill for an enforcer. Scored 29 goals and 60+ points one season. 


  13. I’m watching a documentary about Bob Probert on Amazon Prime and it starts off with a couple fights against Domi (who Probert called a clown) the second of which Probert beat the piss out him. And Steve Yzmeran was mocking Domi afterwards. Loved that part.

    Pretty sad overall though.

    Quarantine Public Service Announcement:

    If you have animals such as dogs, and you leave them outside all day And let them bark relentlessly, I will wish a tiny paper cut at the opening of your pee-hole that will never heal and each time you urinate it feels like you’re pissing salt water. 

    Right? I work nights and trying to sleep while half the dogs in the neighborhood are barking back and forth at each other is enough to send someone over the edge. We have a large dog with a really loud bark, and if he starts up we instantly bring him in. You know, that whole being courteous to others, and acknowledging there’s other fvcking people in this world...
