  1. Loved how Saul became the one who knocks when he showed up at Marion’s back door. The loaf of “white” bread on the counter leaving no doubt he has broken bad. Glad he stopped himself from strangling Marion with the phone cord, so maybe there’s a glimmer of hope for him. I wonder if he will take Kim’s advice and turn himself in.
  2. If he’s afraid of Levi, then he isn’t the right stuff. Good riddance if that’s the case.
  3. I wish I had any faith that UPL is the long awaited answer between the pipes but I just don’t. I think he’s a career backup AT BEST and that’s only if he’s not injured and available for backup duty. I’d love for him to make a liar out me though.
  4. RIP, Vin. I hope you’re pulling up a chair in that big ball park in the sky.
  5. Robinson practically invited Goodell to appeal and increase the suspension.
  6. Judge Robinson’s own language in her ruling defies the logic of her decision to suspend Watson for only six games. The way I read it, she gave Goodell a hammer if he chooses to use it.
  7. Well, the NFLPA certainly has a high court that couldn’t care less about collectively bargained rights, unlike previous courts, so perhaps they will challenge Goodell’s forthcoming decision to disregard the arbiter’s ruling of six games. But given the sheer public outrage at the light penalty and the arbiter’s own language in her ruling, I look for Goodell to at least double the suspension. We will know within three days.
  8. Don’t see how that’s on the NFL since they recommended a one year suspension to the arbiter. I’d be surprised if the league doesn’t appeal the ruling and besides, Goodall has final say anyway.
  9. Hard for me to predict his offensive output because he wants/demands the D assignment vs. top opposing players and Granato is more than willing to let him do that.
  10. Quinn broke both of Levi’s ankles, dislocated both of Levi’s knees, and Devon still makes the save. Shades of Hasek to be sure.
  11. I could make an argument that a 4th line player with KO’s intangibles might just serve as the best kind of example and inspiration.
  12. I don’t know. Perhaps we can ask @Buffalonill instead.😄 Lighting glove.
  13. But shouldn’t KA be tending to business instead of watching practice?
  14. Thought he had a very strong series vs the Lighting in the playoffs. Hadn’t seen much of him before then, but I liked what I saw against Tampa.
  15. The old stadium footprint is slated to become a parking lot after it’s razed. I don’t think the circle means anything in these drawings.
  16. Uh oh, Lawrence is gonna get conscripted into the Russian army now.
  17. From this angle, the walkway and stadium combine to kinda look like the Lombardi trophy. Nice.
  18. That’s what it means to me and several NFL GMs, scouts, and personnel directors I’ve known personally over the years. Granted, I don’t know any NHL talent evaluators personally, but I can’t imagine the concept is too much different. You’re correct in that team needs are always part of the equation and I certainly don’t mean to imply otherwise. It’s a balance and chances are good that a highly ranked player on your board play will match a need at times. But if a team drafts strictly on a need basis, then they will invariably reach for a player when there are better players available. Good players are always a “need” regardless of position.
  19. Selecting the BPA means nothing more than taking a higher ranked player at a lesser position of need and it can be a way to describe a draft strategy because it’s an admission that you won’t reach for a need when there are higher ranked players available at other positions. And it’s a good strategy because reaching for need results in poor outcomes far more often than taking the better player.
  20. I’m not criticizing Eichel, merely pointing out that he created his own longer delay in returning to the ice. I have no interest in re-litigating the issue. Both parties acted in their own best interests. But it sounds like people are taking shots at the Sabres and their perfectly legal and sensible position when they defend Eichel’s decision to hold out.
  21. Eichel clearly didn’t have the right to his preferred procedure as the CBA gives that power to the teams instead of the players. And while it’s true that the ADR is a three month recovery vs. the six months for the fusion surgery Eichel, by insisting on having the ADR, delayed his return to the ice by more than a month longer than if he’d gone ahead with the fusion immediately after the rehab stint that failed to improve the condition initially.
