I found a "Trust the Yzerplan" t-shirt at the super market on sale for $8.49 but somehow managed not to buy it

I think we can start to imagine a 2019/20 season where the Sens are one of the best teams because they're the only one without any aspiring superstar RFAs holding out til christmas

It’s the biggest deal the club has granted since winger Bobby Ryan was signed to a seven-year deal at $7.25M per, in 2014.

was it this one?

https://www.amazon.com/Smack-Apparel-Detroit-Yzerplan-T-Shirt/dp/B07QX9D1L8?th=1

because i can definitely see how the weirdly 1990s looking apparel brand logo appearing prominently on both the front and back + their URL also wedged in there would take this from :smyth: to :emery: pretty quick

That was definitely the front of the shirt, I don't remember if there was a back printing. It absolutely looks like mid-90s apparel and the fabric was a throwback of that era of shirts, too. I'd rather wear something subtle and classic, like a Luke Glendening t-shirt jersey.

I’m still surprised Puljujarvi was as much as a bust as he’s been

When he was drafted I thought his ceiling wouldn’t be as high as Laine’s but he’d be a safe bet. I also didn’t think Tkachuk was going to have as much offense as he’s had.

A+ scouting, me

The Flyers came in at #7 on Prondog's countdown and the fans were mostly reasonable but

Think this was a very average quickly cobbled together article. Also very crappy view of Provorov and hart. Seems like you are afraid to go out on a limb with them even though they’ve shown long glimpses of elite promise. Too many reserved takes and no faith.

Hall of Fame writer Jimmy Matheson out there on twitter suggesting the Oil swap Puljujarvi for Sergachev

This guy would get laughed off HFboards...

Does he have a time machine so they could do it immediately after drafting him?

Kronwall retired, enjoyed watching his goodbye video.

He’s basically the same age as me, and he’s murked so many more people than I have.

Per impeccable source, Pierre McGuire has been removed from NBC Sports' No. 1 hockey team, to be replaced by Brian Boucher.

I searched him on Twitter for more details and Barstool Sports found a new way to be shitty by saying McGuire deserved better (maybe there’s a punchline, but I’m not clicking to find out)

Just came across this comment

I was actually never bothered by Pierre McGuire. His hockey IQ is at Mensa level. Here in Pittsburgh, the fan bas feels he was biased against the Pens but I thought he was objective most of the time.


The fan base felt he was biased AGAINST the PNES? What the

whenever I see hired/fired news about a prominent sports writer I just assume that it's about that person joining the Athletic
