  1. Current show: Mike Baxter played by Tim Allen on Last Man Standing.
  2. Take the average of the last three seasons point totals and generate the draft order based on that. This means a team with one bad season (like Philly) won't draft high because the average is better than a high pick. It prevents tanking because one bad season will not get you first pick. It gives the best draft positions to the teams who have done the worst in the last three seasons, meaning these teams probably actually suck and need that help. No lottery, everything is easily calculated by the public so it prevents stupid conspiracy theories. Best way IMO
  3. Hard to choose! Burrows and Hansen is still a fresh wound. Kesler was a fav player and the only named jersey I own. Bieksa was a great character and I loved his grit on the ice. Hammer was a top notch defender and one of the best good quality all round guys the team has seen outside the Sedins. Salo, in my mind, the second best defensemen the team ever had (behind Ohlund). Ultimately, I voted Luo cause he was the greatest goalie we've ever had here and the drawn out saga made it terriblely hard to digest. Salo was a close second.
  4. Spot the drunk early in the morning!
  5. Negative, he is a meat popsicle.
  6. It sounds like you're not picky, so I'd recommend to just go see what they can offer you for free with a new contract.
  7. Does it bother anyone else seeing "Sedin's" used as plural all the time?
  8. The best part of this necropost is that with the minuses back, we can all give him a minus again! Lol.
  9. Johnny Hockey own goal, Dorsett gets credit
  10. Anyone interested in Sothern Rock/Country should definitely check out this band. This album was just released last month.
  11. Buy a bobble head, put it on your dashboard and wait for the leftists to come whining about cultural appropriation or some bs
  12. Haaaaaarrrroollllllld! Haaaaaarrrroollllllld!
  13. It matters because the bias BLM claims cops have against blacks isn't born in a vacuum. There are reasons besides racism that cops have a bias when a black man is involved and the stats support that bias. BLM seems to point their fingers everywhere besides their own communities and the societal complications within their own homes that are perpetuating this nonsense. It is nonsense to claim the problems are strictly due to racism.
  14. If cops are more likely to be killed by a black man than a black man killed by a cop, is there really proof of systemic racism against blacks? Or even systemic negligence for that matter? There are definitely instances of that, but as people have said about the BLM movement...there are bad apples in every group right? That includes the cops too, unfortunately. A major point made in the article he uses (copied below) is that cops are now becoming unwilling to patrol black neighbourhoods for fear of being labeled racist if something goes awry. This is the problem the far left has created (I will not include all left leaning people as the problem - many liberals are even speaking out against these ridiculous movements, Dave Rubin and Sargon of Akkan would be two to start with on youtube). Racism exists, but it is an individual sin, not a legal systemic sin as BLM claims. There are no more laws that can be considered racist. In fact, we now have Affirmative Action Plans. A huge problem BLM has is a lack of effective leadership. I'm pretty sure Al Sharpton was often ridiculed before this whole movement started for constantly pulling the 'race card' on people in debates and op-eds. This movement is playing by his playbook. There is a problem of violence in the USA, and specifically the black communities. There is no argument against that. BLM is not providing a single remedy. That's what gets people upset. They stir up the people but provide no answers for change. Long gone are the days of MLK. Here's the article he used for some of the statistics: From The Wall Street Journal: A television ad for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign now airing in South Carolina shows the candidate declaring that “too many encounters with law enforcement end tragically.” She later adds: “We have to face up to the hard truth of injustice and systemic racism.” Her Democratic presidential rival, Bernie Sanders, met with the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday. Mr. Sanders then tweeted that “As President, let me be very clear that no one will fight harder to end racism and reform our broken criminal justice system than I will.” And he appeared on the TV talk show “The View” saying, “It is not acceptable to see unarmed people being shot by police officers.” Apparently the Black Lives Matter movement has convinced Democrats and progressives that there is an epidemic of racist white police officers killing young black men. Such rhetoric is going to heat up as Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders court minority voters before the Feb. 27 South Carolina primary. But what if the Black Lives Matter movement is based on fiction? Not just the fictional account of the 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., but the utter misrepresentation of police shootings generally. To judge from Black Lives Matter protesters and their media and political allies, you would think that killer cops pose the biggest threat to young black men today. But this perception, like almost everything else that many people think they know about fatal police shootings, is wrong. The Washington Post has been gathering data on fatal police shootings over the past year and a half to correct acknowledged deficiencies in federal tallies. The emerging data should open many eyes. For starters, fatal police shootings make up a much larger proportion of white and Hispanic homicide deaths than black homicide deaths. According to the Post database, in 2015 officers killed 662 whites and Hispanics, and 258 blacks. (The overwhelming majority of all those police-shooting victims were attacking the officer, often with a gun.) Using the 2014 homicide numbers as an approximation of 2015’s, those 662 white and Hispanic victims of police shootings would make up 12% of all white and Hispanic homicide deaths. That is three times the proportion of black deaths that result from police shootings. The lower proportion of black deaths due to police shootings can be attributed to the lamentable black-on-black homicide rate. There were 6,095 black homicide deaths in 2014—the most recent year for which such data are available—compared with 5,397 homicide deaths for whites and Hispanics combined. Almost all of those black homicide victims had black killers. Police officers—of all races—are also disproportionately endangered by black assailants. Over the past decade, according to FBI data, 40% of cop killers have been black. Officers are killed by blacks at a rate 2.5 times higher than the rate at which blacks are killed by police. Some may find evidence of police bias in the fact that blacks make up 26% of the police-shooting victims, compared with their 13% representation in the national population. But as residents of poor black neighborhoods know too well, violent crimes are disproportionately committed by blacks. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, blacks were charged with 62% of all robberies, 57% of murders and 45% of assaults in the 75 largest U.S. counties in 2009, though they made up roughly 15% of the population there. Such a concentration of criminal violence in minority communities means that officers will be disproportionately confronting armed and often resisting suspects in those communities, raising officers’ own risk of using lethal force. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that white officers are especially prone to shooting innocent blacks due to racial bias, but this too is a myth. A March 2015 Justice Department report on the Philadelphia Police Department found that black and Hispanic officers were much more likely than white officers to shoot blacks based on “threat misperception”—that is, the mistaken belief that a civilian is armed. A 2015 study by University of Pennsylvania criminologist Greg Ridgeway, formerly acting director of the National Institute of Justice, found that, at a crime scene where gunfire is involved, black officers in the New York City Police Department were 3.3 times more likely to discharge their weapons than other officers at the scene. The Black Lives Matter movement has been stunningly successful in changing the subject from the realities of violent crime. The world knows the name of Michael Brown but notTyshawn Lee, a 9-year-old black child lured into an alley and killed by gang members in Chicago last fall. Tyshawn was one of dozens of black children gunned down in America last year. The Baltimore Sun reported on Jan. 1: “Blood was shed in Baltimore at an unprecedented pace in 2015, with mostly young, black men shot to death in a near-daily crush of violence.” Those were black lives that mattered, and it is a scandal that outrage is heaped less on the dysfunctional culture that produces so many victims than on the police officers who try to protect them.
  15. You'll fry it if you manage to do it. The plug ends won't fit in the outlet even if you tried.
