  1. Oh man, I was at that game. Upper deck, at the Canes blueline camera-side when that goal went it. It was a mad house. That game (and the rest of the series) was the origin of the baby-eating, and "Drunkard" getting into the Canes fans' heads.
  2. To be fair, every head coach (under contract or not) probably called hoping to work for the Leafs, so there wasn't much legwork on Treliving's part.
  3. Dunnno, Appert had one year as USNTDP HC, and 10 as a college head coach when he got the Amerks job.
  4. I'm mostly righty. I use my right had to put the entire clementine in my mouth. The extra fiber is good for you.
  5. I'd think not, 3-6-9 in 10gp for the Avs this playoffs.
  6. Maybe a sign? "Get off my lawn!" Complaint: minor fall on my MTB on Tuesday, but good enough to bruise my knee, hip, and elbow. Luckily, I did it right before a stop so everyone in the group was watching.
  7. I hope we're talking about the kicker guy, cause that guy is a turd.
  8. After a long and detailed search, speaking to dozens of people, we were shocked to find the perfect match in our own org. We're upgrading Joe Amerkski from skate sharpening senior tech to be the 38th Amerks Head Coach. He'll assemble his staff (from other people in the org) shortly.
  9. I think they write "if you get hired by another team, things change" into the contract.
  10. Man, I got to be a pro at rolling through at around 10 MPH and timing the toss so they hit the basket.
  11. I think that works with a stadium in the middle of things to do (based on Google Maps). There's just *nothing* around the new and old sites in OP.
  12. In a bubble, Appert is fine. As a whole, bringing back half of the assistants might be fine. But, you hire from within when you have something that's working and you want continuity. You bring in from the outside if you think you're going in the wrong direction and need new eyes on the issue. I don't think anyone here really thinks things are going in the right direction, such that bringing in Lindy is the *only* person hired from outside the org. I don't think we're going to see shake-ups in the line-up either. Maybe picks or a prospect for a 3/4 C and W to fill out the roster. I might be downgrading from low-contact to no-contact with the team, lol. This is probably the least effort the Sabres could make to change things, which I will match with the least effort I'm able to give following the team.
  13. We're old, lol. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Vancouver_Stanley_Cup_riot
  14. I'd assume they're also in the ear of the Salties making sure it's a good deal for Toronto.
  15. A questionably injured Eichel that may not have healed. It appears LV won that gamble. I'd think a fully-functional 60 goal scorer would draw a bit more. It would be delicious to see the Toronto media turn on him, lol. So hang on, would he consider Utah his "hometown" team since he grew up in Scottsdale AZ? This might have legs!
  16. Pre-WW2 all the teams were in a kinda weird playoff, 1-2 would play and 3-6 had a mini-tournament to play the winner of 1-2. After that, the number is more like 2/3, I think. During the original 6, it was 4 four teams, then 8 of 12, 12 of 18, 16 of 21. Since 1993, it's been 16 teams, with the league slowly growing to now, where that's 50%.
  17. We really need a 🍿 react for this place.
  18. OK, next everyone check in with the street you grew up on and favorite pet's name.
  19. Oh, get out of there if you can. Management is not setting the old team up for good outcomes.
  20. #2 is "hire back the last coach that had any success with the team without looking elsewhere"
  21. If I were an above-average goalie, I'd absolutely use that nickname; it's hilarious. I'm not sure the KHL (if that's what you're thinking) is the draw it was a couple years ago given "outside factors".
  22. Maybe it was video coach scouting.
  23. Sometimes, the only way to get a raise or promotion is to leave and come back, lol.
