This talk of OMG can he afford to live in Rochester is absurd.  He made almost ONE MILLION DOLLARS the last two seasons, plus 30-whatever games for this season.  If he doesn't have enough money sitting the bank to live in Rochester for 10 years, I'm not gonna feel sorry for him.

 

Do you have any idea how expensive it is being a milennial these days?

The happy hour they’ve always done in the Upper Atrium? Didn’t realize they did those for a $1 now. They were $2 and if you did the math you’re only saving like $.50/24 oz. It wasn’t worth it to stand in that line and then try to get four of those cups back to your seat.

Maybe it's $2? The line is crazy long sure. Idk just a fun excuse to get people to go

 I’m sure tickets will sell well for a few games. When Tage came down last year there were definitely more ***** in the seats for a while. I can almost guarantee that I see at least one Mittelstadt sweater on Friday night.

For crying out loud....butts in the seats

Maybe because some guys need some extra teaching to learn it?

He doesn't know how to be strong on his stick and harder to knock over. He may learn that.

 

He's about to get a lot of one-on-one coaching. It's why the league exists. Their schedule has 7 day lapses between games almost every week. They practice almost every day during the week for hours. 

Maybe you are right but I’m skeptical. Over and over again when you hear old timers talk the stuff you learn in the AHL is Don Cherry type nonsense. Also, all you hear about the NHL is that it’s “the speed of the game” that separates it. Again, nothing that can be learned playing in h th he AHL. I watch goal highlights from AHL and it’s like watching old Sabre’s video. Half of those goals don’t go in in the NHL. Again, how does beating those goalies help?

Need more one on one coaching, expand the rosters in the NHL to 30, hire more staff. It would be more cost effective.

Yes.  $70k should be enough to live on, but if he wants to live la vida loca, he should have savings to dip into.  If he doesn't, that's on him.

That's the point.  Slow down the game a bit so he can learn moves, techniques, etc.  He tried to jump a step and a half and it was just too much of a gap for him.  Some players can do it, he couldn't.  Give him half a season at the halfway point between college and NHL and hopefully he can make the leap this time.

If they start to give it away for free then you make sure you let me know! I always have a 30 pack of Genny Ice hanging around. Love me some Cream Ale too!

That'$$$$$ gonna hurt.

The way I look at it is he won the lottery.

No way he should have been on the big club making the big bucks. He won roughly 1.5 million. Now he will get what he should have been getting since Oct 2018.

Hard to be butt hurt for someone that won the lottery.

Very much so. Rochester cost of living is pretty low

That actually makes me realize it's kinda nuts how I've never run into a Sabre/Amerk around Rochester. I'm out all the time at some of the bigger spots, figured some random luck would have hit by now

And yet you don't run into me either... funny how that works.  🙂

It doesn’t matter what people have, they always want more. It’s basic human nature.

Genny seasonals are the best bang for the buck out there. Their Schwarzbier for $9 a 12 pack is my favorite. 
 

The Genesee Brewhouse is packed every weekend of the year.

I did all the railroad bridge repairs at Joseph, Clinton and St. Paul a few years back. We were in the Brewhouse a lot. I thought I’d take the wife before a hockey game a couple weeks ago but there was an hour and a half wait. The food is good, the beers even better but not for that kind of wait. You could barely even get in to do tastings.

Genesee literally had 8,000 people a week ago at the brewery for the keg tree lighting. I think some people have pretty outdated views of Genesee.

Gennesee has really turned around the brand. Unfortunately, some people still have these antiquated view. Their pilot batch series is phenomenal.  At the Amerks games, the only thing that makes sense are the Genny and Labatt pounders as everything else (minus the happy hour thing) is Major league priced. No ***** thank you.

That's obviously the way a New England Patriot fan "toes the line".
