I haven't been crazy about any of the rumored candidates, but if Chia takes over I will fully move on to being a 'Canes fan.

So Don Waddell doesn't have a contract and is interviewing for the Minny job? That's a strange one.

all the RFAs should get together and form their own barnstorming team

has anyone given any thought over the past few weeks about how fucking stupid it is that every good player under between 22-25 is without a contract and as it stands won't be in their team's lineups when the season starts

I can't believe that the only good player who didn't try to get everything they possibly can out of their team was the best player and his team is the worst team

Ceci's wife set their friend on fire, this was probably known around here but some good sentences here https://ottawasun.com/news/local-news/indescribable-emotional-trauma-and-personal-upheaval-lawsuit-seeks-8-million-from-cody-ceci-and-others-following-freak-accident/wcm/6b4e1f86-4226-4884-af93-a2acc7ec8648

User bambamdiggadiggadam is from Stittsville, just texted him about it.

That's a crazy story (especially the part when Ceci's wife just chucks the bottle at the woman) but six million for loss of future employment is a lot.

I realized my favorite thing about Pronman ranking the prospect pools is how great the user comments are:

Quote:
Sorry but i can only Laugh at this ranking. When you have Vaakanainen and Lauzon among others you automatically are better than the bottom of the barrel. Add in Beecher and Studnicka and you're automatically and at minimum in the middle of the league prospect wise. 29th is a joke and not at all accurate.

After being ranked as a VERY GOOD prospect last year, how has Donato fallen out of the top 10 altogether, while many of the prospects in the top 10 are not super high quality? Has he fallen that hard?

This is from the Breaking Down an NHL Salary article, which is great:

Quote:
Nick O.
It's shocking to learn that 50% of NHL players make less than the median salary. The NHLPA should do something about this in the next CBA.

P N.
But that’s how you calculate the median. Literally.

They're still better than the general internet but at least 25% of people there are dumb as hell now.

The gripes about Pronman's prospect rankings usually boil down to "I am familiar with my team's prospects and they are great, definitely better than other teams' prospects, which I am not familiar with."

The Red Wings traded a 4th for Adam Erne for some reason

They have a logjam of bottom six guys and I'd rather see Ol' Man Svechnikov or Hirose or even Ehn beat out Erne

Jacob de la Rose can get the fuck off the commode

I have been thinking recently about how W Nylander getting concussed at the WJCs ruined both Nylanders

Well let's hope Billy Guerin isn't as big of an idiot as Fenton!

It cracked me up reading the piece on Guerin in The Athletic that Fenton’s son 1. Ran the draft for the Wild 2. Is still employed with the Wild
