Season 3 Baseball GIF by The Simpsons

Holtz just bad, ya dig?

The irony of The Simpsons’ joke about Mattingly’s sideburns is that the episode in which it occurred was actually conceived before he was suspended for refusing to cut his hair, but I digress.

Is that right? Pretty big Simpsons fan here. I don't recall that being the case.

I don't know why it shocked me but Holtz leads the Devils in five-on-five points per 60 minutes (I would've guessed Jack or Bratt). Holtz isn't good at driving play (he has bottom-3 xGF% and CF% underlying's among Devils' forwards) but pair him with linemates who can (Jack, Bratt, Nico, etc.) and we might get cooking there... Holtz's most common linemates have been Mercer and Tierney for goodness sake. Please finally free this man, Lindy!

Haven't checked in here in awhile, hope my ol' fam is well... Let's Go Devils.

It is.  An article referencing the series’ bizarre ability to predict the future explains that the real-life Mattingly incident happened after the episode was produced.

what's the point of trying out line combinations in practice if you're not going to use them in the game??

Didn't like what he saw from the line, or the effect it had on the other lines?
But I do want to see Jack and Holtz together for a bit.

Yeah, I just find it hard to believe that they're performing poorly in practice that it wouldn't be worth putting them together for a game.

What makes it even worse is that it coincides with Jack’s return.  Are we ever going to see the team we envisioned at the start of the season?

Looks like Bratt’s okay (for the moment, at least), as he came back out for his next shift.

Bratt was slow to get up after that hit against the boards.  Hope he’s okay.

That would be par for the course this season. It’s unreal.

He's fine. Don't even.

How mad is the Dinosaur right now that this line is clicking 

Can’t allow such confidence to be built up by Holtz, needs to be humbled again and put back on the bench for the 2nd
