Also, during the first intermission of the Ducks Wild game, the Ducks team interviewed the artist who has designed the masks for a decade or two now. They were talking about Gibson’s veteran’s day mask and he broke down saying how much it means to him because of his grandfather and it’s the least he can do to honor vets. I, for obvious reasons to most, hold this and the other two “holidays” near and dear, so this was really cool to me.

So Jesse Puljujärvi seems to playing his way out of Edmonton.. it sounds like they may be demoting him to the AHL soon to 'regain his confidence'.  Sound familiar?

I have zero clue as to whether the value is there - or if it's something we'd even want to do - but do you guys think there's a deal to be made around Zacha for Puljujärvi?  I admittedly don't watch a ton of Oilers games so I don't know much about him besides his draft pedigree.  I imagine a guy like @Triumph might know a bit about him.

But these are two young guys who might greatly benefit from a change of scenery.

I don’t think Edmonton does it just for the fear of another infamous “The trade is one for one” scenario 😉

This article, in relation to Nico, annoys me. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, of course, but it still annoys me.

What a ridiculous article. It’s ‘clear’ that Pettersson is better than Nico? What, why? Because he’s had a fast start to his ten-game NHL career? Meanwhile Nico only helped his linemate win the Hart and centered the top line on a playoff team as an 18_yr old.  Lazy Canadian bias.

He’s played all of 10 games, had a ridiculous shooting percentage in those 10 games, and is built like a fvcking string bean that happens to be on a water diet. The Canadian media needs a chill pill.

Its clear he's been better in the handful of games this season. That's about it.

I'm still more impressed with Nico's full season as a 200ft player who put up 52 pts at 18 years old having never played professional hockey in NA over Pettersson's really impressive offense in a handful of games

Apparently Gritty got over 70,000 write-in votes for Governor of Pennsylvania.

They need to get him on next season if It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Admittedly I've only seen like one or two episodes of that show.  I don't know why I never got into it.  It's entirely possible that the name of the city being in the title may have had something to do with it.

You're doing yourself a disservice by not watching it

One of my favorite shows, absolutely one of the best.

The early seasons, 1-5, are absolute gold.

That's sad, we could never get 70,000 people to write in N.J. Devil. 

But seriously, if that's true, they should change the name from "City of Brotherly Love" to "City of Morons".

I've heard nothing but good things about it, so I'll probably try to get into it soon.  I just got back into Ray Donovan though, and that's got me hooked for quite a while (only in the middle of Season 3).

I thought they were synonymous.

I watched some episodes and it was definitely funny. For some reason though, I just didn't get addicted to it like I did with Workaholics and Curb. Not sure why.

Pittsburgh trade F Carl Hagelin to Los Angeles for F Tanner Pearson. 

On my phone right now so can’t post tweets but McKenzie and Dregger got the scoop apparently. 

So the Kings got older. Lol.
