  1. Why do we do this to our players? Put this kind of nonsense out here? It can generate some momentum and become one of those dark clouds hanging over us. Let's support our players instead of trashing them. I remember when he was drafted....not many expected him to be what he is. A lot of crying over who we should have taken. Then Petey showed us his stuff and all of a sudden everyone clambered on board the train. So make up your mind? All players have peaks and valleys....he's coming off a LONG layoff - the injury then the contract stuff. Give him time to get up to speed again. He's his own worst critic and is likely being very hard on himself - we don't need to do it for him. He'll be fine. All of a sudden his contract talks have put him in a light where people are demanding results (rightfully so) without giving him time to shake off the rust and get his timing back. We're JUST out of the gates with Petey...if he's still struggling 20 games in then maybe we can start worrying? Sure, there is a little concern but he's a great player and has shown us what he's capable of. How quickly we forget.
  2. Horribly tragic to lose someone in a senseless accident like this. I can't imagine the guilt and anguish of it all. Police have confirmed Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on the set of western Rust on Thursday, accidentally killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza Author of the article: Bhargav Acharya and Alexandra Ulmer, Reuters Publishing date: Oct 22, 2021 • 2 hours ago US actor Alec Baldwin attends DreamWorks Animation's "The Boss Baby: Family Business" premiere at SVA Theatre on June 22, 2021 in New York City. PHOTO BY ANGELA WEISS /AFP via Getty Images Alec Baldwin fatally shot a cinematographer and wounded a director when he discharged a prop gun on a movie set in New Mexico on Thursday, authorities said. Baldwin shot Halyna Hutchins, the photography director of “Rust,” and Joel Souza, the film’s director, at the Bonanza Creek Ranch, a production location south of Santa Fe, according to the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department. Prop gun fired by Alec Baldwin kills woman on set Hutchins was transported by helicopter to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Souza was taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center to undergo treatment for his injuries. The severity of his injuries could not immediately be determined. Actress Frances Fisher said on Twitter that “Souza texted me that he’s out of hospital.” Asked whether Souza had been discharged, medical center spokesperson Arturo Delgado said he was not allowed to release information about patients. The Sheriff’s office said that no charges have been filed and they are investigating the shooting and interviewing witnesses. “The investigation remains open and active,” the Sheriff’s office said in a statement. Halyna Hutchins, director of photography for “Rust”, poses for a selfie photo in this picture obtained from social media. PHOTO BY HALYNAHUTCHINS /Instagram/via REUTERS Entertainment news site Deadline cited a source in the Sheriff’s office as saying that Baldwin was questioned by investigators and later released. Baldwin went to the sheriff’s office willingly and provided a statement to investigators, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported, citing spokesperson Juan Rios. Deputies were still trying to determine whether what happened was an accident, the newspaper added. Rios did not immediately respond to requests for information from Reuters. Baldwin’s representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Earlier on Thursday, news magazine People reported that a spokesperson for Baldwin had said there was an “accident” involving the “misfire of a prop gun with blanks.” Baldwin was seen “distraught and in tears” as he spoke on the phone outside the sheriff’s office headquarters on Thursday, the Santa Fe New Mexican wrote. Baldwin, 63, is a co-producer of “Rust,” a Western movie set in 1880s Kansas, and plays the eponymous character who is an outlaw grandfather of a 13-year-old boy convicted of an accidental killing. Production of the film had been halted for an “undetermined period,” several news outlets quoted the film’s production company, Rust Movie Productions LLC, as saying. An e-mail to an address for the film production, which was listed on a New Mexico government statement, went unanswered. The shooting evoked memories of an on-set accident in 1993 when U.S. actor Brandon Lee, son of Bruce Lee, died aged 28 after being fatally wounded by a prop gun filming “The Crow.” “Our hearts go out to the family of Halyna Hutchins and to Joel Souza and all involved in the incident on ‘Rust’. No one should ever be killed by a gun on a film set. Period,” said a tweet from Lee’s account, which is handled by his sister. BAN ON SOME PROP GUNS? The accident renewed debate about whether certain types of prop guns should be banned. “This suggestion doesn’t help any of them, but it’s time to stop being macho about blanks and end the practice,” said Ben Rockula, a director. Earlier on Thursday, Baldwin posted a picture of himself on Instagram sporting a grey beard and dressed in Western cowboy-style attire in front of trailers. He appeared to have a fake blood stain on his shirt and jacket. “Back to in person at the office. Blimey … it’s exhausting,” he wrote. The post was deleted late on Thursday night. Hutchins, 42, who was originally from Ukraine and grew up on a Soviet military base in the Arctic Circle, once worked as an investigative reporter in Europe, according to her website. She graduated from the American Film Institute in 2015 and was selected as one of American Cinematographer’s Rising Stars of 2019, according to her website biography. She described herself as a “Restless Dreamer” and an “Adrenaline junkie” on her Instagram page. Her last post, two days ago, shows her grinning under a wide-brimmed hat as she rides a horse. “One of the perks of shooting a western is you get to ride horses on your day off:)” she captioned the video. April Wright, a writer, director and producer, paid tribute to her on Facebook. “I’m in disbelief,” wrote Wright. “So young, vibrant, and talented. Such a wonderful soul. My heart goes out to her son and family.” “I can’t believe that this could happen in this day and age … gunfire from a prop gun could kill a crew member? This is a horrible tragedy,” said actor Joe Manganiello, who worked with Hutchins on the 2020 action movie “Archenemy.” Representatives for Hutchins did not immediately respond to a request for information about her death. Souza, 48, lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and two children, according to the IMDB website. His LinkedIn page credits him as the “writer/director” of action film Crown Vic and comedy Christmas Trade. “This is still an active investigation and we do not yet have all the facts,” said SAG-AFTRA, which describes itself as the world’s biggest labor union representing performers and broadcasters. “We will continue to work with production, the other unions, and the authorities to investigate this incident and to understand how to prevent such a thing from happening again.”
  3. That should lift a bit of weight off the guy's shoulders. Hoping Petey can relax a little and open the floodgates soon. Had a feeling Brock's energy would translate into a goal. I thought he played a pretty good defensive game too. Huggy's starting to show his stuff...he really is a special player and there's no doubt we really miss him when he's out of the line up. It's also nice having a goaltender I trust in those dying minutes...I know Demko can be spotty, but he doesn't buckle under pressure and that's huge.
  4. Wasn't the prettiest of wins but the guys got it together for the second half of the game. It became evident they did NOT want to lose again.
  5. This is that hold your breath heart stopping last bit of the game that shortens my life by a year or two.
