Glad the Bruins didn't make that deal, as Pittsburgh got stomped with him, and we ended up signing him without giving up any assets this year. He's been... decent. Yeah, he had 30 goals, but a lot of those were garbage or empty net. But, he's been healthy, so he was better than keeping Horton.

2011 > 1993.
Posted Sunday April 20, 2014, About: Raptors GM apologizes for shouting Nets expletive
Considering the front offices I'm used to, with Tom Werner trying to lead chants out of rhythm, or Jacobs showing up for parades and getting booed, this guy brought what the crowd wanted.

I thought this was great.
Posted Sunday April 20, 2014, About: Bryce Harper benched for 'lack of hustle'
There's a difference between not killing yourself by running into a wall, and pouting because you grounded out.
Posted Sunday April 20, 2014, About: Bryce Harper benched for 'lack of hustle'
The dude didn't leave the box after hitting a grounder for a good two seconds, then half-jogged about halfway up the basepath before turning off to the bench. That's not how you play.

You could pretty much put anyone that spent their prime in Cincinnati on that list.
Cheap, yes. Typical? Get a grip.

I, too, thought this would be a Theo story.
Posted Friday April 18, 2014, About: Most important matchup in Wings-B's
"we weren't supposed to even make the playoffs this year..." That's what your coach keeps telling your players, but anyone with half a brain knows you went out and made some key signings to make a big push. You had some injury issues that nearly blew your chance, but once you got in, the regular season didn't matter. The Red Wings were the only team in the East I was worried about. They proved why tonight.

You may have smoked a bit too much weed this evening, sir.

Bourque over Lidstrom all day.

Posted Thursday April 17, 2014, About: Puig, Mattingly mum on 'other stuff'
I once had a gig that required me to work with a few Feds. One of them said that the Cartel is the only organization he legitimately fears. They don't mess around.
Posted Tuesday April 15, 2014, About: Bruins can't count on shut-down D
The Wings have handled the Bruins very well. I fear this series more than I'd fear any other team in the East. The matchups have killed the Bruins this season. Unless you're a believer in "playoff experience" swinging those games, it's hard to assume the Bruins will roll them (but I hope they do, obviously.)
Posted Monday April 14, 2014, About: A surprise return for Zetterberg?
No. No. No. No. No. Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.
Not really, agreed, not really, agreed.
That wasn't much fun.
Posted Monday April 14, 2014, About: A surprise return for Zetterberg?
Loved it, as did everyone (maybe even Sabres fans) (fan)
Posted Monday April 14, 2014, About: A surprise return for Zetterberg?
There will be no round two for the Wings. Sorry :(
Posted Monday April 14, 2014, About: The pitching trend ruining pitchers
I don't think the article was critiquing the workload so much as it was critiquing the repertoire of pitchers. Here's an idea: Everyone throw the knuckleball. Every pitcher will throw 9 innings, until they're 50.
Posted Saturday April 12, 2014, About: Ryan Malone arrested on DUI, cocaine charges
That might be a low estimate (NFL and NBA, anyway. The MLB players tend to be too busy with their 162 game schedule to get into this kind of trouble.)
Posted Saturday April 12, 2014, About: KHL: Alex Ovechkin must get out of NHL contract
Only if you're buying a ticket.
