  1. Well that escalated quickly...

  2. Well, looks like Leipsic is done in the NHL and probably professional hockey altogether, at least in North America.

      He isn't the first person and sure won't be the last to end their career for some blatantly stupid comment they have made on social media.

      Once those remarks are made public and people see what type of person you are it is far too late to apologize for your terrible behavior.

      Even thou the President of the USA seems to be able to constantly get away with them,but we can see what type of person he honestly is,just the worst type of human being.

  3. Well, someone somewhere succeeded at dividing sports fans while posing as a movement for solidarity.

      Welcome, to the real world.  

       

      The media and governments have been doing this for over 2 decades.

      It's all a part of the distraction, so that the rich get more and more power. 

  4. What an end to the Habs/Preds game... wow!!!

      LOVE IS IN THE AIR!!! They scored with 8.3 seconds to win the game!  I love love and love them.  My goodness, I am out of breath.

      Bettman rewards you with McDavid 

  6. What I love most about Toronto's situation is that their "strategic" approach in taking on LTIR players means that they cannot accrue cap space during the regular season. So Marner's cap hit for the upcoming season increases each day for the same contract proposal given before the season has begun.

      Dubas doesn’t want Leafs Nation to fret about that big doughnut you see to the right of the club’s “current cap space.” Math wizard Brendan Pridham has a mapped a plan to squeeze the Maple Leafs’ leading scorer — when/if he signs his second contract — under the ceiling, be it short- or long-term.

       

      I love the Leaf biased media and their take on their cap situation being under control and other teams in trouble. I really hope it comes back to bit them in the ass this season.

  7. What I really loved with sports players reacting to racism issues was both teams' entire rosters intermingled with each other, on both sides of the ice (or field) for the anthems.

     

    To me, that had far more of an [EDIT: positive] emotional impact than teams or players looking like they just want to say, "I'm taking my ball (or puck) and going home."

  8. What's lit?

      i dunno, my ceiling lights are pretty lit atm.

  9. When I free Willy, I usually end up cuffed and then confined in a cell. What am I dong wrong?

      Willy's stiff demeanor tends to soften when away from the arena I hear?

      You need to yell "REAL GOOOOOOOD" when you free him. That's how you respectfully fire him.

      at least people notice! :^)

  10. When they come for me I'll be sitting on my desk with a gun in my hand and a bullet proof vest, singing 'my-my-my how the time does fly, when you know you're gonna die by the end of the night'.

  11. While I wholeheatedly support the BLM movement, what precedent is set by stopping all sports when an issue like this comes up? There are several other social issues that are just as important. For example, child kidnapping and people trafficking, sexual abuse and related oppression, epidemic levels of drug overdose, local poverty and starvation, and these are just a few local issues. Go international and the number of issues explodes exponentially! Does this mean that sports should boycott games for each and every child abducted? or each person who dies from an overdoes on tainted drugs? for any person who is raped or sexually abused? All of the issues are just as deserving of the support. We would never have professional sports again, in my opinion, if boycotts are to be used with the same level discretion.

      @Aladeen yes!

       

      But boycotting just separates people, causing a battle, as oppose to working together, or supporting each other.

       

      Its a "[cold] war for peace".

    2. Green Building

      Green Building

      I find it to be the definition of entitlement when people become perturbed to enraged over popular public figures taking a stand for what they believe may garner attention for their cause and/or community.    

       

      Aladeen is right, and for the most part I have no points to refute. Slavery has very much evolved and in the form of incarceration is enshrined within the 13th amendment. Of course, that's only 1 rung on the ladder of oppression and I certainly do not have all the answers or any of the power, but this public discourse is long overdue and the attention that baseball and basketball received today will help drive the discussion in hopefully a positive direction that is more than empty words.  

       

      People who lose their evening entertainment show their true colours with their reaction to an oppressed people's desire to do more than have their voice merely heard and ignored for the umpteenth time, but who also desire some semblance of action as a result of it.

      I believe @Drive-By Body Pierce makes valid points though. All of those issues he mentioned, particularly human trafficking, is an on-going issue. In fact, modern day feudalism, which could be interpreted as slavery, exists. There is also disproportionate amount of inequality in many countries, a lot of which is attributed to widespread corruption. If we are going to attribute "boycotting" as a nuclear option, then there is nowhere to go after that. The initial 'shock' of it is gone. It's the same thing as unions threatening to strike and how this usually just plays out over a longer period of time than intended. Too many times do we resort to the 'nuclear' option rather than finding more meaningful ways to come up with solutions.

       

      And to those who don't care about sports, what is boycotting going to do for them? Nothing.

  12. Whoever chose the Canucks' shootout lineup tonight should be bag skating tomorrow!!!!

      Would've had Baertschi over Sutter. That shot wasn't even close.

      I legit laughed when I saw Sutter move toward center ice.

      My only surprise was that Gagner was sooner.

  14. With disappointing playoff performances for both Dumba and Coyle as well as a down regular season for Coyle, I would be happy to hear that Benning is on the phone with Chuck Fletcher (or his possible replacement) regarding either player.

      Charlie Coyle despite playing RW down the stretch, had a 53% in the faceoff dot. 

       

      I'd be so down to get him.

    2. Odd.

      Odd.

      Coyle would be a nice addition.

      Dumba would cost us Bo, so that's a BIG NO from us.

  16. Would posting a link to a FB birthday fundraiser for the BC Childrens Hospital be ok?

      Although the general rule is not to divert traffic away from the site, I'd double check with stealth for something like this because maybe exceptions could be made for such a good cause?  

      Sorry I don't have a more definitive answer...my gut says it's fine but the final word should come from the big boss.

      Maybe we could just have our own CDC fundraiser to help offset the lower donations during COVID?
