    I opted to buy in to the reduced price NHL TV subscription just to watch the Leafs, and just in time for this Leafs / Habs game. Honestly, worth it just to have the CBC feed...

    Oooh thanks for the reminder on that, it's down to $40 for the remainder of the year ($32 for one team)!

    Weird hockey trivia of the day: What famous pop singer was the first person hit by a puck in the Panthers' arena in Sunrise, Florida?
    hint: they were five years old, and had been hit by a puck the year before in the team's old Miami arena.

    I had to read that twice, because my first thought was, "The Florida Panthers have been around long enough for kids at their games to have grown up and become pop stars?" And then I looked it up and saw they've been around since '93?

    What the fuck?

    I am the old now.

    It only gets worse. I graduated college in Jan 2002. Some kids starting college this coming Fall were born the year I graduated.

    When people start learning about advanced stats, a common thing they’ll want to learn is what players are actually better than most people realize, and which players are secretly terrible.

    Jack Johnson has been the go-to example of the latter for years, to the point that stats twitter were flabbergasted when Pittsburgh gave him 5 years at 3.25mil (that’s right, 4 more seasons of this and he is on the wrong side of the aging curve)

    An example of a player that advanced stats say is actually better than he’s often given credit for?

    I watched the actual video like three times and this gif a dozen more, and I still don't know where the puck went and how it appeared out of thin air on Crosby's stick.

    It fell. Crosby's body is blocking most of it, but you can see the blur right before he grabs it.

  • enlightenedbumenlightenedbum Registered User regular
    My guess would be it fell off the netting and the officials missed it, just with how it lands.

    Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.

    The Canucks have goalie prospect Mike DiPietro up from the OHL on an emergency call-up and are playing like dogshit in front of him.

    I love that our defence is giving him his second soul-crushing loss in Rogers Arena this year after the World Juniors.

    I mean, the Canucks defence is bad in general, aside from Tanev, and they're up against one of the top offensive teams in the league. It was always going to go this way.

    The bigger question is what the hell is Benning doing? I know Markstrom and Demko are both hurt, but they had DiPietro as backup since the 5th, that is plenty of time to find any alternative to throwing a promising young prospect to the sharks years before he's likely to be ready. AHL teams exist for this very reason!

    the move came... a day late. they just picked up mazanec

    they were burnt on the mckenna trade and benning was probably trying to save face and not look like he was frittering away resources: classic sunk cost fallacy, really

    i don't think the d was especially bad in front of him; it's been bad whenever it's not 100% healthy this year. the green goalie just exposed it. markstrom has been hot fire. i really think it needs addressing: pouliot's redemption song ain't getting sung, and the press box has not been kind to biega's hustle

    edit: oh, further to the mckenna thing: i read somewhere that mckenna's only in the A on a conditioning stint, and in like 4 days he'll need to be waived again. at which point benning can reclaim him. i suppose he assumed he could ride markstrom that far

    That’s assuming the 10-11 teams ahead of the Canucks in waiver priority don’t claim him first

    As an NHL Twitter follower, about 75% of the people worth claiming off waivers do not get claimed.

    And about 25% of the people on waivers are worth of getting claimed.

    So, in my opinion, it's a solid bet

    So recently the Hurricanes have taken to having some elaborate victory celebrations at home. One among them being playing Duck, Duck, Goose at center ice. Apparently Don Cherry doesn’t like it, and called the team “a bunch of jerks”. The Hurricanes have responded....

    Cherry is ridiculous. I can't wait until people stop asking his opinion about, well, everything.

    I just hope they can be be good sports if/when they make it to the playoffs this year and then lose a series at home and their opponents do the duck duck goose celebration on their turf.
