It's gonna be fuckin' sick when the PNES' prospect pool runs out and then Crosby and Malkin retire and then they're terrible again and then they get three number one picks and they're all clones of Connor McDavid

Sure look forward to reading the comments on this Athletic article:
The 5 North American major leagues will have 150 teams in 2020 — but only 1 black majority owner. Why?

This makes for the fourth race based article at this website in less than 24 hours. ENOUGH!
I'd also like to buy an NFL team - but apparently the NFL doesn't like selling teams to 35 year-old white guys (who have less than $100,000)... I mean, that's not racism - but clearly they have an issue with people like me owning teams.

It's not fair. Why don't I get my own NFL team.

Is there an Athletic writer courageous enough to write about how the league won't sell me a team?
Now isn’t this a pedantic troll of an article?

Vote for Bernie and his world view on your own time.

Just because you have a forum does not mean you should napalm The Athletic with it.

Doesn't that pass deflect off the defender's stick? It seemed like he was trying to set up Nurse

He had a nice resurgence last year after people had written him off. I hope it's not a serious (particular life-threatening) thing.

Reminded me of Jiri Fischer's cardiac event.

Weber potentially being dunzo is interesting, would the Habs refuse to put him on LTIR(etirement) / encourage actual retirement in favor of the Shreds having to give something up so they could do it?

It seems like holding a gun to someone’s head and then shooting yourself in the foot to prove you mean business

If I understand this correctly, there's only a recapture penalty for Nashville if Weber retires. But Weber would be giving up his remaining salary ($18M) by retiring, so why would he do that?

But I like your gun to the head/shooting yourself in the foot scenario!

Didn't Florida have a certain percentage of the cap recapture penalty for Luongo? (Fake edit: Yes, just over a million.) I don't understand why they had it, though.

I wonder how much of this is Shea Weber groaning "I can play! Coach, let me play!"
