yeah i’m not reading another novel about why SD hates Subban, i’m good.

the forum should make some sort of selective filter. any time SD posts with the words “Subban”, “PK”, “Lou”, or “you’re obviously not listening to me” it gets muted for me. Because I don’t want to just outright block him, he’s one of my favorite members. But a little filter wouldn’t hurt.

Still better to be annoying to some than making very severe accusations like calling someone racist for absolutely no reasons beyond your own unfounded projections. You really should apologize to Rob_Ottawa

So how was everyone's Labor Day weekend?

I saw Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. I know with these super hero movies people love them or hate them, this one was a little less super hero-y so those who don’t like the Avengers type movies may still enjoy it.

Nobody got booed for being Asian, so that was good.

I will have to see that eventually.  I still haven't been to the theaters since the pandemic started.  Most likely it will be the new James Bond movie that will make me go out to one (I love Bond films).

Obviously it depends on location, but our most local theater is never really packed, and it is even less so now. There were maybe 12 people in the theater for a 4pm showing, and it probably accommodates 40-50. I felt quite comfortable. 

They played a preview for the Bond movie, it looks great. 

Of course, I went to a Broadway show on Saturday and everyone was shoulder to shoulder (but masked). It felt weird to be back to being that close to people.

Knowing there’s some interest is a good position to be in. I think P.K. will be a much better player for us with Hamilton taking the big minutes but if we aren’t looking at the playoffs at mid season and he’s not in the future plans, trading him at half salary for something makes all the sense in the world.

Yep. We should be able to get a nice asset in March for PK if we are out of it.

Also that it's not like the Devils HAVE to trade him...they're not even close to being in a cap crunch.  I have no issue with the Devils moving him, but it does seem like if they do anytime soon, it's going to be on their terms (OK, we'll pick up half his salary, but you have to give up something decent then).

Yeah having the ability to take some of the salary definitely helps get him to a cap-strapped team if it comes to that

As much as I don't want to see any players suffer injuries, the Devils' best bet to get more than we could ever expect for PK would be for some contending team to lose a key defenseman.  Not sure PK would be at the top of anyone's list (the last few seasons have been mixed at best for him), but ya never know what might happen if the right team gets desperate enough.

The above being said, I don't pretend that the Devils have some gem just waiting to be cashed in for a killer return; if Fitz ever got a second-rounder and a middling prospect at or before the deadline, I'd consider that a fine return.  As we know, he's a UFA to be that is very unlikely to be in the Devils' plans beyond this season...if he looks like he's really contributing to the Devils this season and a reason why they might get into the playoffs, I could live with losing him for no return at the end of the season, unless someone's really willing to go the extra mile to get him.  Sure, it's always nice to try to snag some pieces for departing assets, but every now and then, it's also nice to actually get to the playoffs too.

Imagine being so in tune with the world that ANY criticism of a minority player is instant racism.

It was a circus when he came..........anyone remember the dumb presser?

Unbelievable

Yeah i assume Giordano will be at the top of that list, way cheaper and better option than PK. Stralman, De Haan, Goligoski might be there too, which id say should be on par with him.

Imagine if Hynes would have been from a minority group.

Visiting this board would have been like walking directly into a KKK meeting according to that logic! hahaha

Are you that oblivious? 

If I said "Hynes brought negative media attention" and "I don't want to re-sign Hynes because of the circus", you'd say those are patently stupid comments. Hockey is a meritocracy, and Hynes was fired because he was just flat out bad at his job. Nobody was commenting on his fashion, or his "bad press", or his "gaudy press conference" (because obviously it was Subban's fault the Devils gave him some weird ass motorcycle jacket?). 

"I hope PK Subban isn't on the team next year because I don't think he's worth the money" is a legitimate statement. 

"I hope PK Subban isn't on the team next year because of the circus he brings and the bad press he brings" without being able to cite literally one fvcking example in his entire tenure in New Jersey is icky, flirting with racist. You're blind, dumb, stupid, or ignorant to say otherwise. Or all four.

Oh so because someone says something negative about a person who happen to be a minority. Without providing any extra details. That's making him racist. And if someone disagree they are blind, dumb, stupid and ignorant. Are you even aware of how insanely insane of a jump to conclusion this is? 

I wrote a long post explaining why people think PK is problematic but you're too cool to read it and CHOOSE to be ignorant about it. Then call other people racist cause you can't perceive anything based on your own tiny echo chamber. I don't personally care about anything PK did here. But he did fvcking jump in a pool in a bikini. I personally thought it was funny but if someone would call that a circus, i'd get it. Or point out how he dresses weird. Just like we did with Kinkaid too, who's a white dude. It has nothing to do with skin colour. 

This is so fvcking insane. I expect someone with so little logic like you're displaying here to wear 2 different shoes.

You out of anyone on this board said WORD FOR WORD some of the most horrible things. Straight up black and white. Horrible things. And we all believe you that you were just joking or wtv. But then you call someone racist for not saying anything racist at all? And wont even consider apologizing or taking it back? That's straight up disgusting.
