Hockey coming

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

Vegas account was talking some shit before the game about how both teams had the same number of consecutive playoff appearances.

I want to change my display name (dan m), Saturday, 14 October 2017 12:35 (one year 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

mookieproof, Monday, 23 October 2017 23:22 (one year ago) Permalink

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

should get some ontario-quebec rivalries going too

Was Caps owner Leonsis being too cheap in not paying him what he wanted? Or will Caps do fine with Trotz's assistant ?

curmudgeon, Tuesday, 19 June 2018 18:49 (four months ago) Permalink

BT was asking for five years and I think the caps thought that no coach is worth 5 years of top money. I think I agree with them.

And I think there was generally bad vibes between the two parties since the team never really seemed to be totally bought into him once GMGM left.

And they're fine with the asst guy Todd something.

tobo73, Tuesday, 19 June 2018 19:17 (four months ago) Permalink

the coach's salary doesn't count against the cap right?

the bhagwanadook (symsymsym), Wednesday, 20 June 2018 02:09 (four months ago) Permalink

it does not

i believe trotz was the previous general manager's hire, and he was underpaid by the standards of such things. he took the opportunity to exit while his stock was high as a cup-winner and the caps didn't really seem bothered to stop him

it's kind of weird, and putting a rookie coach in charge of a successful veteran team may or may not work, but hey, they just won their first cup two weeks ago. worry about this stuff in three months imo

mookieproof, Wednesday, 20 June 2018 02:19 (four months ago) Permalink

Leonsis can prob afford to pay the big bucks

the bhagwanadook (symsymsym), Wednesday, 20 June 2018 02:27 (four months ago) Permalink

i dont think the big bucks are necessarily the problem, it's the long-term deal that is. They don't want to be committing to pay a dude huge money when maybe ovechkin and backstrom and holtby are gone in a few years and who knows what will be going on. i am inclined to agree that BT doesn't justify that committment.

tobo73, Wednesday, 20 June 2018 02:35 (four months ago) Permalink

hockey coaches -- even the successful ones -- seem to have pretty short shelf lives with individual teams. can't recall anyone getting a deal of that length except for babcock, and it remains to be seen how that turns out. so yeah
