  1. I know Cole Cassels scored a playoff goal for the Comets and that got everyone excited again but I would suggest waiting another year in the AHL to see if he progresses before anticipating what type of NHL player he will be (if he ever becomes a NHL player). The problem when someone posts a GIF of a player doing something good is they are cherry picking the good plays which never tell the whole story. When is the last time you saw someone post a GIF of a prospect turning over the puck or losing a board battle? Yes, Cole scored on a nice shot from the faceoff circle but he only scored 2 goals in 67 regular season games and was a -17. Only one of those two goals even came from a shot he took as the other went off his skate when he was standing in front of the net. After he scored in the playoff game last Saturday he had a bad turnover in front of his net 5 minutes later that the Devils scored on and tied the game. Cole giveth and Cole taketh away. He needs a summer where he can train properly to see if this season was a aberration or if he just doesn't have as high of a ceiling as many predicted. But from what I have seen from him he is a slow skater with poor puck handling skills that needs to improve his game on the wall dramatically before he can even be considered an average AHL player. All the talk about Cole being a great shut down center has not surfaced in Utica either. He rarely draws an assignment against a top line and doesn't look particularly strong against the other team's bottom 6 forwards.

  3. Amazing how some people just jump to the conclusion that a GM is completely incompetent without knowing anything that is going on behind the scenes. What value did Corrado have? A 7th round pick? I'd assume they'd rather try and sneak him through waivers than get the pick.

  5. Jim's a freakin boss. If people don't want to aknowledge his vision, I don't care. I love the way he's filling out this team. Targeting the player strengths he wants and getting right on what they need to work on... Boom you have a Baertschi... Boom you have a Granlund.

  6. I still hope Sanders runs as an independent. If nothing else to split the Dem vote. Trump is single handedly going to destroy the GOP, if Sanders helps on the other side of the fence America might finally see the end of their absolutely obviously bought and paid for 2 party system

  10. If Trump and Wall Street is bought and paid for by Wall Street, why is the GOP establishment trying to stop him? If Trump is the darling of Wall Street, you would think Wall Street would be falling heads over heels over that guy by giving him support. Which is certainly not the case Look, both the Republicans and Democrats are in the hands of lobbyists and Big Business. They want the status quo, which is to make as much money as possible. They don't want any disruption to the status quo. More than anything the Republican Establishment wants to gain power and a wing nut like Trump is not going to give them the White House. The GOP establishment love guys like Jeb Bush and Milt Romney. Unfortunately, the rank and file of the Republicans are not listening to the guys at the top.

  11. Criticizes someone for posting a meme and the subject of his very next post is this hackneyed, cliche and inaccurate cartoon. Trump should choose Elizabeth Warren. She's a Harvard Law Professor, who's specialty is bankruptcy...

  12. This will be fun. Yes, we're scared. It's like how Trump supporters feel about Hillary. The PC culture won't be destroyed, in fact, you'll only support it by giving people who are in the 'PC flow', as it were, a reason to be victimized. They may (or may not) support ISIS even more. Who is Donald Trump's team? Hulk Hogan and Jesse Ventura? While I admit that they may make a formidable combo in a tag team match, they won't get anywhere in the White House. Congress won't let them. The nation will be divided under Trump (or Hillary, or Bernie, or Cruz for that matter - but the most division would come under Trump). About the BLM movement: you don't really understand what it is, do you? I didn't either for a while, and I was like you saying "all lives matter". It's not wrong, but not all lives are in danger. In the States, especially the more southern areas, black people fear for their lives every day. Not just from gangs or whatnot, but from the police as well. It's a $#*%show down there. Saying "Black lives matter" is recognition that they do, and supporting a community which has been seemingly under attack from everywhere. Also, if all lives matter, does that include Muslims and illegal immigrants? When is cotton picking racist? When you make black people do it for free. If they're not civilized, why don't we educate them? And while we're at it, why aren't people learning self-defense? Except for rich muslims. They'll be allowed to immigrate. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2016/03/31/donald-trump-muslim-ban-msnbc/82474894/ Nothing against background checks, but Trump has flip flopped more than a fish fresh out of water. And also, do it for either everyone, or everyone from certain dangerous areas of the world.

  21. Maybe he just liked them and didn't love them? I am pretty flippant when it comes to tattoos so I don't take them too seriously. I'd love to get a matching tat with someone/anyone. My bf and I talk about getting matching tattoos all the time, but not so much "matching" as they are related (ex: one of us gets a hockey stick and the other a hockey goal- no these aren't the actual ideas though). That way if we ever break up the tattoos can stand alone, and also individually mean something to us as well as together.

  26. What? Not Canada's team! Toronto is Canada's biggest wasteland for sports teams. The Leafs, Jays, Raptors, Argo's, and TFC, are all pathetic. Last season was just a tease folks, AA, went all in last year, and these two leaving town, all that will be left are memories. They've had BP issues for several seasons, and haven't figured that one out yet. A case of ownership running the show, trying to win with names, instead of needs.

  28. Technically: - The US is the largest piece of the NATO pie, so it is a bit dependent on them. - He never implied that AFAICT. Considering NATO is more like the UN, it's a bit more of a level playing field anyhow. Also, countries technically don't have to be allies, as these countries are just at a treaty with each other. EDIT: My mistake, the NATO group are allies. However, the US is still the biggest piece of the puzzle.

  29. We live our lives knowing our leader will keep the country safe, the borders monitored so ONLY legal visitors and legal immigrants enter. We live our lives knowing that the country and it's people come first and NOT special interest groups. We live our lives knowing the economy will soon be back on its feet, the 19 trillion dollars deficit will be reduced and NATO allies who are not pulling their own weight need to be reexamined as supposed allies. We live our lives not caring what anti-Trump supporters can conjure up in their little minds to attempt to sway voters to vote another way. We live our lives knowing the GOP, the establishment, the old cronies of the party can and will say anything or join forces with anyone from powerful lobbyists to super PACs that will do whatever it takes to stop President Trump, but will fail, as the people should always decide who represents the party, and NOT the insiders or anyone else. We live our life. Your welcome.

  30. Oh the cutting irony of that statement Alf. I wish. It seems JB doesn't listen to me either. I knew he didn't listen to the rest of CDC but I thought at least he book marked my posts even if it was only so he could have a late night chuckle with his Chivas Regal. It seems not as he has extended that 178 lbs low scoring, no pushback, nonentity, for another 2 years. Oh well I have been wrong before - not often mind.

  37. Or how about the people who think he's racist? Wanting to secure the borders from potential thugs, drug cartels and yes, even ISIS (they're plotting to come into the US through Mexico) is racist? When did he ever say "We need to keep mexicans out"? I love Mexicans. Mexicans should come to the US LEGALLY if they want to move there. That's all he is pushing for... It's like telling a country not to protect its borders because it'll 'offend' someone and he's against that... What country wouldn't protect itself? Maybe Germany, but look how the state of it has deteriorated and gone to crap now that all of the refugees have came there... I have a German friend. Smart girl. She has been sexually assaulted TWO TIMES since they came over. One on a public bus and one when walking in broad daylight... A lot of the Muslims that come and immigrate are NOT GOOD. They're NOT CIVILIZED. They DON'T UNDERSTAND that women have the same rights as men, and they refuse to learn... Guess what they get called if they speak out against it? Nazis... They get vilified by people, so their only choice is to go through life with fear that they'll be randomly assaulted or 'catcalled' by people who don't understand being civilized... I guess Trump is a misogynist for wanting to prevent this right? lol Trump 'banning Muslims' is 'banning Muslim immigration' at this time, not 'Banning Muslims completely'... Muslims will be allowed to enter the States.. They will be allowed to visit... They will be background checked... Hell, American Muslims that are just returning home will be allowed to return home... But anyone immigrating from a lot of the countries that are terror threats (Syria, Iraq for example), will not be allowed to at this moment... I don't see how this is racist? Protecting US citizens from danger is not racist...Trump would do the same thing if the UK, for example, declared war on the US... Guess what? A lot of Islam has declared war on the US... It's clear. A lot of Muslims DESPISE the US... Trump is simply defending what America stands for... I guess this is racist? Lol. There. The main 'reason' people dislike Trump completely debunked... Please refute my statements and tell me they aren't true... Because you will fail.. And I will prove you wrong once again.

  38. Can just tell Trump haters are so scared. It's glorious to see. The PC culture will be destroyed, and it's going to be perfect. ISIS is going to be absolutely annihilated. They're going to be afraid to even affiliate with ISIS through social media or anything similar. There will be no pansy ass losers who don't take action due to PC reasons in the Whitehouse. There will be Donald Trump, and his team that will lead this country again to economic greatness, military greatness, and PC culture will be destroyed. Black Lives Matter? All Lives Matter mofos.

  39. Looks like the Toronto Maple Leafs will be moving onto round 2. Congrats to Nail and the Tampa Bay Lightning on a great series. It would have been closer with a healthy McDonagh and Stamkos. Also congrats to our lone representative for the second round, Andrej Sustr. If he can win us the cup, we will shatter CDCFL records. Doubtful that Tye McGinn or Jordan Caron get a lick of ice-time.

  43. not sure if this is possible....but it would be a nice feature for polls to have the option to set a date and time that the poll closes. for example if the poll is asking for you to give yer guess at a series...the poll could then be set to close just prior to the series starting. i see to many people make their choice 4 or 5 games in or even after the series is over.
