I think you touched a nerve.

 

Give it a chance tho, the 48 game season when CHI won the cup was pretty good. 

Apparently ::D

 

It's not the shortened season that is the issue for me, more the players getting pulled from the lineups, games cancelled, moved, delayed etc. Would just prefer them to cancel and start up next year. Just my preference.

I also like the players and fans to be healthy. I just think it's better to write this season off and go in September/October. 

But I am torn because I want to see hockey too. Just not at the expense of anyone's long term health.

 I fail to see how someone who plays fantasy is a degenerate, but ok.

Not sure why I have to spell everything out here. Not everyone who plays fantasy is a degenerate. Maybe look into google once in a while. Things sometimes have alternate meanings.

 

If someone calls you a degenerate gambler then they are not complimenting you. If you are a degenerate gambler then you need to step away from the betting window. A degenerate is someone who bets for the rush of the action above all else, and who isn’t capable of making good, mathematically sound bets that have a long-term expectation of profit. In simpler terms, they are compulsive gamblers who are destined to go broke.

I get that. But I think its make or break for the much of the league, they need the tv $. 

 

I'm pretty stoked about it, and I'm also glad that the year Loui's deal finally hurts us is this wonky year. Bit of a silver lining there imo. Plus we get to see some kids try to make the team. Lots to like. 

If there is one good thing about them having a season is that it burns another year off Loui's deal..

Pretty sure a year of his contract, and everyone else's, would have been burned anyway. At least according to Burkie.

I'm really excited about Rathbone getting his 1st camp. He's a long shot but it will be great to see where he's at. Also Juolevi finally gets his first real chance too. So that alone makes it fun for me on top of the rest of it. 

 

I think the Demko-Holtby duo in a 56 game season could be phenomenal if Holtby regains his form.

Probably due to your choice of wording in initial post, stating those watching NFL are fantasy degenerates.

 

Chances are it won't matter to you anyway if you're not watching. A shame, as you could miss out on a deep run by the Canucks.

I hope they can pull this off. Many doubted that the Playoffs could happen, but they did, so I'm really looking forward to hockey.

 

I wonder how long camp will be this season? I'm already impatient for more.

Do you know the difference between a statement and a question?  

 

Is anyone actually watching the NFL if you aren't a fantasy degenerate?

 

Either way I'm not going to beat a dead horse here.

tons of  hockey experts think we won't make playoffs  online they are the same people that said  wild and blues would beat us

nick schmidt is a massive upgrade on tanev  who's slow old gets crushed in the corners   doesn't hit of provide offence

 juolevi has massive upside  great mobility and outlet passes  plus size he's a upgrade on  Stecher who was to small.

we get to see Rathbone Lind Hoglander Rafferty push for spots

Macewen Gaudette Virtanen Petey Hughes Boeser motte  hopefully keep improving  and this hawyrluk kid will help the bottom 6  be excited guys hopefully Benning pulls another trade  in next week Sutter Eriksson Roussel need to be sent out to pasture  asap time for kids to learn to pk

Ummmm Jimmy next year it hurts us more since Petey and Hughes will get paid.

Pretty stoked to have hockey coming back  around the same time football is finishing up.  Given most of my other hobbies have been taken away by Covid, I'm grateful to still be able to watch my favourite sports in any capacity.
