  1. My confession: so after a tough breakup/divorce with someone that I thought I'd be with forever (boy is forever a long time, lol!) I think I may have actually found someone that "gets" me and that I may be finally happy with
  2. I totally agree with you about not liking the process. Lately I've found a way to make it more palatable though... when I meet someone for a first date I always suggest doing something that I like to do or would anyway like grabbing a tea and going on a scenic walk or playing minigolf. So if the date goes poorly or doesn't lead to anything at least I had a good time
  3. My understanding, and I could be wrong, is that teams acquiring players at the TDL get the cap hit pro-rated to what is left owing for the remainder of the season. For example, if a player makes $6 million and gets traded 3/4 of the way through the season, the new team has a cap hit of only $1.5 million for that season.
  4. Me today at the top of the Beehive in Lake Louise...
  5. Me hiking a couple of weeks ago.. .
  6. Would you be willing to elaborate on this? I'm not "calling you out" or trying to start an internet fight or anything, I'm just genuinely curious as to why you're down on food banks?
  7. I think you may be reading too much into this. It's more likely that management said "Hey, we don't really have room for you here as a player but how about a role in player development?" The refusal to report to the AHL was probably just a formality to get his contract terminated.
  8. Forecheck. Backcheck. Paycheque.
  9. I hear what you're saying, I'm just not sure why the organization and player would risk being caught when they could do things above board. Either way, it's a pretty trivial matter. I think we can both agree that it's awesome that Brock is signed and playing!
  10. I'm pretty sure that's not allowed. College players can't receive any compensation from a team and still be eligible to play NCAA. Plus, I think it's pretty common for teams to agree to burn a year of the ELC to get the player to turn pro earlier. Unless I'm mistaken Brock could have gone back and played another year of college hockey.
  11. Watched the first one yesterday... I thought it was pretty great. I'll most likely check out the second one today.
  12. I personally would have been more curious as to what Columbus was willing to offer us the year prior... I remember the CBJ beat reporter saying at the time that the Jackets had made a substantial offer but MG wanted to keep Schneider and trade Lou.
  13. Logan: 9/10 This is the Wolverine movie I've waiting for...
  14. Yeah no, that wasn't it at all. Look, it's no secret that we don't have a cup contending squad right now. That's not saying the players are crappy, it's simply the truth. Adding in all of the injuries and the recent case of mumps obviously makes things worse. Their point was that they feel that WD has this team playing hard and fighting pretty much every game is all.
