  1. Between him and Jack they could be 2 of the biggest bargains in the league if they both repeat how they played last season.
  2. Mfitz takes pictures of his jerseys laying on the floor - what do you expect? Guy’s a savage.
  3. Maybe he doesn’t like dad jokes?
  4. I have no idea what this is in reference to? Have a bunch of famous rappers died recently? It’s also not really something that needs to be compared, but James Caan, Ray Liotta, Tony Sirico, and now Paul Sorvino is quite a blow in a matter of months to one specific sub-genre. I kind of want De Niro and Pesci to lock themselves in a bubble for the rest of 2022.
  5. I would rock the Auvitu before I wore a Zacha lol. Those really unique players that hardly anyone remembers can be kinda cool to wear. Better than remembering the player for all the wrong reasons. Plus - the French thing. There can’t be that many players in the history of the NHL from there.
  6. And on a darker note - I just found out that Paul Sorvino died. The gangster genre just keeps taking hit after hit this year. I wanted to meet him at a Horrorhound convention not too long ago, but he canceled for health reasons. I was going to have him sign a picture of Paulie slicing the garlic. RIP Paul. You don’t have to move for anyone.
  7. We definitely have them. I just don’t remember them coming to the neighborhood I lived in very often. We have Graeter’s ice cream here though (should be your top priority if you’re ever in Cincy for any reason), and I got plenty of that growing up, so I can’t complain.
  8. I didn’t say I hadn’t heard of them. I said I never had one. I’ve heard of them a bunch, but honestly it was always in old movies or shows. I didn’t even know they still made them. Can’t say I’ve ever seen them in stores, or even seen someone eating one. Maybe they were more of an ice cream truck thing? I can probably count on one hand how many times I ever bought an ice cream from one of those - even as a kid.
  9. I won’t try it just to spite you a$$holes!
  10. Me either. As long as they keep these around I’m good.
  11. That would make a ton of sense. And would be well earned. I know he’s helped a lot of the young guys. He was one of the coaches that really helped Sharongovich develop his shot. From an Athletic article: Two assistant coaches in particular — Sergei Brylin in the AHL, Mikhail Grabovski in the KHL — have put in the hours of work with Sharangovich before and after practices to fine-tune his shooting ability.
  12. The heritage are still the best of the bunch, imo. The only Adidas jerseys I’ve purchased have been a game issued red John Ramage (whoever the fvck that is) that I had turned into a Hughes, and a white heritage that I had done up with Hischier. I actually liked the RR a lot but the crest was too low if I’m being nit-picky, and enough has already been said about the Jersey jerseys…
  13. Nothing concrete, but it sounds like our next RR might be Scouts inspired. I definitely prefer the one with KC’s old crest on it. Don’t want to see blue on a Devils jersey.
  14. So we saw Nope (it’s great), and there was a preview for Jaws on IMAX. It’s one of my favorite all time films, and even seeing a trailer for it on the big screen was awesome. I’m definitely going to try and go. @SterioDesign Do you know if you guys are getting it up there?
  15. I just saw that the Panthers don’t have a 1st round pick until 2026 now. Crazy.
  16. This is a big one. This MUST happen.
  17. I wouldn’t give Bratt $8 mil. He needs to be making a little bit less than Jack. Right in between Nico and Jack is probably fair. I’m not going to try and convince anyone that they should be excited about next season. But with Brunette over Recchi, VV in goal over guys like Gillies and Hammond, Palat in the top 6 over Tatar or Johnsson, Marino over Subban… I’m at least somewhat hopeful ? I’ll take that after some of the dark years recently where there was literally nothing to be hopeful about. We’ve added some proven NHL players, a President’s Trophy winning coach, and if - and it’s a big “IF” - but if the kids stay healthy, and take another nice step (would it really surprise anyone if Jack is our 1st 100 point player as soon as next season?), then this team can at the very least challenge for a playoff spot.
  18. You’re incredibly wrong, and this a REALLY bad take! Bratt has made every player he’s played with look better, including absolute scrubs like Zacha and Gusev. He’s easily the 2nd most dynamic player on the team, and his advanced stats are fantastic. His transition game and possession numbers more than make up for lack of size or toughness. Don’t get the “never finds the back of the net” comment either. Kid is coming off a 26 goal season despite being on a team with an absolute dog sh!t power play coached by Mark Recchi.
  19. And no - Nemec wouldn’t have been there. There was a lot of talk that he was Seattle’s guy.
  20. A “vanilla draft pick” would have been just taking Shane Wright. They swung for the fences with the upside of Nemec.
  21. Yeah, this. It’s been a solid offseason for Fitz, just not an overly exciting one. Which honestly it was probably never going to be after landing the top prize just last year. I’m pretty happy with Recchi being swapped for Brunette, and some actual NHL caliber goaltending coming in. Palat and Marino will probably move the needle more than some may think, too. A top 6 winger and top 4 D.
  22. 5 years younger than Huberdeau, too.
