    2015-16 NHL thread

    QUOTE (soxfan49 @ Jan 21, 2016 -> 01:43 PM) I know that much, but you can't deny that he's been showing far more offensive ability than any other winger has this year on that line. I don't believe he sticks for the whole year, but someone else has to be better, preferrably Teuvo. There are 2 reasons Shaw is so successful on that line. 1, due to not being a center, he has more freedom to roam around the ice and 2, since he has 2 of the best defensive forwards in the NHL on a line with him, he can be way more aggressive. The top line wasn't doing much of anything until Shaw stuck there. I'm not attributing Toews' resurgence entirely to Shaw, but it's certainly helping.

    I really like the Sekac/Garbutt deal for the Hawks. He's younger and FAR more skilled. I was just watching Sekac last night against the Wild, and he can create some scoring chances. It certainly adds a little offense for this season, and hopefully they can lock him up for the same salary because he has potential. And obviously as stated, this frees up over 800k in salary for next year.

    Just came back from 5 days in Denver. Dammit do I love that city. In one afternoon, I drove up to and around Lookout Mountain for incredible scenery, saw the Buffalo Bill museum and grave, went to Red Rocks and walked around, did the Coors Brewery tour and also checked out Mile High Stadium. The drive south to Colorado Springs/Pueblo is also really gorgeous.

    How about a little credit to Stan for finding TVR, Panarin and Gustafsson out of the blue? And I'll be the first to admit that I hated Anisimov being the main piece in the Saad deal, but he's proven me wrong. That line is unreal.

    QUOTE (bmags @ Jan 20, 2016 -> 01:11 PM) Anyone think Marian Cilic is a likely person involved? I think that'd be too obvious in a Grand Slam final. Djokovic came out the other day and explicitly said he was offered 200k to throw a match back in 2007.

    Should minor leaguers be paid more/unionize?

    As someone who has worked in MiLB and gotten to know a lot of minor leaguers personally, ABSOLUTELY. You'd be surprised how many of them rely on saving the per diem they get on road trips as extra income.

    For the love of God, someone please help me. I heard a song on the radio the other day, can't remember a single lyric (not sure there even were any?) but it sounded like a Johnny Cash song. It's a newer song, but the music reminded me of Ain't No Grave or that damn Ford commercial. UPDATE: FOUND IT! Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know?

    I started dating my GF in July. Since then, I've lost 20 pounds of muscle. Went from 211 to 191.5. So disappointing to see all that hard work go down the drain. Getting back into it the last couple weeks though. I've been eating and training like a mad man.

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Apr 27, 2014 -> 08:35 AM) The JGCs are the bomb. I've had a 2011 and 2014 of the new model and both have been pretty much rock solid. If you don't care about tech, the wrangler is also nice. I'm really looking forward to test driving both. QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Apr 27, 2014 -> 10:00 AM) Capital One does prequalifications for auto loans on line if you are close. They will tell you what credit line you qualify for and what your interest rate would be. Going from there you can go backwards to get your payment with a compounding interest calculator. Awesome. I'll look into that.
