Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

I still don't think it'll happen, but the proposed schedule for the play-in round is INSANE and it'll basically be March Madness but for hockey. I have something like 4+ weeks of vacation in the bank (and obviously nowhere to go, nothing to do) so if they make it to Aug. 1 maybe I'll take a week of...

NHL confirms that teams in the play-in round "made the playoffs"

Re: Cool Tunes, Cool Buds: An All-Sublime Music Thread

Yeah I've listened to the Beths album a couple of times and it's excellent. Vinyl shipment is delayed for some reason.

The new Julianna Barwick is good, although it's short and feels short.

The new Jesu mini-LP is booooring.

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

I figured you'd be psyched about the scout. I'm not sure what the "won't lose Demko for nothing" implies, if that's "We're going to trade him before the expansion draft" or "We're going to trade him before the expansion draft and we want a lot in return ." Benning's dumb as hell so I assume it's the...

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

As much as I don't think any of the sports' approaches will work, because COVID doesn't care that you want to have professional sports, my feeling is get the players to the bubble cities ASAP and quarantine them there for the necessary time. I understand that means they won't see their families for ...

I also mostly lived in "junior" towns until now so maybe I'm used to it?

But I'm also the guy that went to watch Joe Veleno as a 15 year old, so...
I really want Veleno to pan out as a 2nd/3rd line center. Seems like a good dude.

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

I've been listening to The Athletic's Red Wings podcast, Wings for Breakfast, and while it's good, I realized I'm completely exhausted by the "Use your cap space to acquire young assets [picks or prospects] by taking on bad contracts" b/w "Don't sign anyone" approach. I'm going to write them a lette...

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

It's hard to think of a team that lacks a single player that's worth watching. The Red Wings were historically bad, and yet if Larkin / Mantha / Zadina / even Lil Tuzz are in the lineup, it wasn't completely dire.

Tentative dates listed in #NHL and #NHLPA Memorandum of Understanding:

Later of Oct. 9 or 7 days after Cup Final ends is opening of #FreeAgentFrenzy

Nov. 17: Opening of training camps for 2020-21

All subject to change.
This all seems wildly optimistic!

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

In a general sense I wonder, if your favorite team isn’t involved, whether it’s more enjoyable to pay a bunch of money to see a good team play from worse seats or pay less money to see a bad team play from good seats.

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

We walked around outside of the Bell Centre around game time during one of our visits to Montreal (too cheap to buy tickets). A lot of youth hockey kids asking us for money to support their team. I'd like to go to a game there sometime.

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

The Athletic's been ranking sports stadiums / arena and I enjoyed the MLB one a lot*, which was a fan survey, but today they posted the NHL one driven by reporters' experiences with the arenas and a huge part of the criteria and a bulk of the commentary pertained to the press boxes. A lot of the com...
