this penguins-to-the-white-house thing has been . . . disappointing

sid is a master of 'pucks to the net/just gotta skate harder tomorrow' so it's not surprising that, particularly as a canadian citizen, he wants nothing to do with american politics

and i can understand that the franchise wants desperately to avoid alienating half (?) its fans. idk, maybe they could have been all 'we'll visit along with the NBA champs'? but we have very definitely come to the point where visiting the white house is a political photo op for its inhabitant, and if a side must be chosen, you might as well choose the right one.

i was at least hoping for a joke about how malkin would always be welcome

anyway, if you need help sleeping, here are loops of skaters practicing. the crunch of the ice never gets old: https://www.reddit.com/r/hockey/comments/3pzvp5/til_that_after_the_radio_feed_ends_on_nhlcom/cwbrzar/?utm_content=permalink&utm_medium=front&utm_source=reddit&utm_name=hockey

I want to change my display name (dan m), Saturday, 14 October 2017 12:35 (four months ago) Permalink

How energetically should I jump on the Leafs bandwagon? Can they win the Cup this year?

Answer in a way that a baseball fan can understand. Are they like the Cleveland Indians of the late '90s, filled with all these high-powered young hitters but with mediocre enough pitching (goaltending/defense) that their offense isn't enough? Or are they so good offensively that just okay defense and goaltending might do.

bigg-ish game in toronto tonight! you know, for october

clem i would say they're somewhere between those two -- probably the former, but maybe not. in any case, they're well on the way to being quite good and should in any case be exciting to watch

i don't think they can win the cup this season -- maybe next year -- but they should certainly make the playoffs and who knows, maybe their goalie gets hot

It takes six steps to get from Bartolo Colon back to the first MLB game in 1876.

Bartolo Colon played with Harold Baines for the 1999 Cleveland Indians
Harold Baines played with Minnie Minoso for the 1980 Chicago White Sox
Minnie Minoso played with Phil Cavarretta for the 1954 Chicago White Sox
Phil Cavarretta played with Charlie Grimm for the 1935 Chicago Cubs
Charlie Grimm played with Red Ames for the 1918 St. Louis Cardinals
Red Ames played with Jim O'Rourke for the 1904 New York Giants

http://www.baseball-reference.com/oracle/

clemenza, Monday, 27 November 2017 02:05 (two months ago) Permalink

(Two gimmicks on that list: besides Minnie Minoso, Jim O'Rourke retired in 1893, then came back at the age of 53 for one game in 1904. If you exclude Minoso it takes seven steps, and if you cut O'Rourke's career off at 1893, it'd probably take eight.)

sabres update:

6-16-4 for 16 points -- only 15 points behind the expansion team (which has a game in hand)

in 26 games they've had 82 power play opportunities, during which they've scored 10 goals and allowed 7

their defensemen -- all of them -- have yet to score a goal

It’s really only brodeur. Roy was the last of the psycho goalies. Hasek was kind of a freak. After that first Chicago cup and they ditched Khabi I decided that goalies are actually fungible/glorified relief pitchers

Gretz was the right man at the right time

yes, but no one else at that time was anywhere near it

brodeur is a hall of famer and then some for 20 years but he was never a guy that clamored inside heads like hasek imo

mookieproof, Thursday, 28 December 2017 05:43 (one month ago) Permalink

Everyone compares Gretz to Ruth in terms of dominance over the field so that comparison is correct, I suppose. The euro influence wasn’t as pronounced as it is now.

Brodeur has kinda become the archetype for big goalies, even after the Finnish/catch everything school came around. He has a longer tail. Hasek is mythic tho, I agree.

husked, tonal wails (irrational), Friday, 29 December 2017 15:44 (one month ago) Permalink

Gretzky had some fine years in LA, but was also hobbled by injuries. got his team to the finals once and lost (Hrudey in goal, so i realize this this may not be fair). His best years were in Edm though.
Robitaille is my fave King all-time so i don't discount him at all, but DB is such a complete player. I've never seen anybody else lay big clean hits on people while in the same motion turn a fine offensive play the way he does. And he does it everyday. And he's captained 2 cup-winning teams.
