Well I went to sleep around 5 AM and woke up at 12 PM. That makes 7 hours.

That'll do.

Maybe someday, when my finances get better.

Living the life of an unemployed NHL fan means my wallet is and remains rather empty. Constantly.

I gotta look for a job.

I sleep whenever I'm sleepy basically.

Clock is something that doesn't matter to me. They're just a bunch of numbers.

I mean Nurse was still leaning into him after the puck was gone, coulda easily been interference on Nurse too. Kane spinning like a ballerina, losing the puck in the neutral zone, then falling over for no reason and giving up a 2-on-1 is why that happened.


the refing was terrible in this game overall, just before this Kadri hooked McDavid when he was trying go get out of the d-zone with the puck. And I don't really know what Kane was doing there but he gets a pass for that in my mind because his goal was the reason that we got a point out of game.

Think software developing requires some sort of understanding about computers and electronics in general lol.

Not my cup of tea, as the British would say.

I'll probably just head to some grocery store and work my 9 to 5 day there.

Guys what are your thoughts if the nhl ever added 2 more wildcard teams on each side. And then those 4 teams would play a best of 3 series WC1 vs WC4 and WC2 vs WC3 for the last 2 spots

Ever think of starting your own business? You seem like the kind of person that would thrive off of not being dictated by someone else's schedule.

Dropshipping is one thing I'd seriously look into if I were you. Little to no startup costs, and can be super profitable if you research what you're doing.

Also since covid, many jobs are remote, so your location may not be an issue for some NHL-related jobs such as social relations, etc.

I also know a whole bunch of clubs are always looking for out-of-market scouts, so if you looked you may be able to get a job as a European NHL scout....... you'd be at an advantage for that job, as it's a lot easier for a team to ask you to go see a couple Finnish minor league games or KHL games....

Whatever you decide to do, best of luck!

Ottawa Senators
I’m really nervous; TSN1200 discussed this. But man idc; that Hamonic trade does not have any logical sense to it.

YES IT HELPS NOT PLAY ZAITSEV (cause that guy is brutal), but you could have; picked up Hampnic off waivers, could have picked up ****ing Myers, you could have done 8 million other moves.

Additionally; there’s dozens of reports that Hamonic is just a “problem” internally. And his cap hit sucks ass. Oh and you have to also figure out what you’re gonna do with Zaitsev, White and now Hamonic. They drafted Boucher, nothing from the TDL built confidence in this management.

Sanderson is hurt; and this is a delay in the timeline Sens wanted; and he may miss the Belleville Sens playoff run. Batherson and Pinto are dealing with injuries that should not be taken lightly. Chabots hurt and I can’t help but wonder how different things would be if Ottawa handled business better and in a more timely fashion. As now they basically threw away another year with nothing being accomplished on or off the ice really.

Vegas Golden Knights
You’re idiots. I hope you get ruled against (dadonov).

Tampa Bay Lightning Calgary Flames Colorado Avalanche
The cup favourites; it’s obvious.

Everyone in the East had to load up for that bloodbath of a eastern conference playoff we’re in for. That’s gonna be some unreal series. Whereas in the West, despite my criticism for teams like Edmonton Oilers ; there’s not much you can do. I mean you have the offensive juggernaut in the Avs and defensive juggernaut in the Flames. And they’re running away with their divisions and the conference leads. So while everyone in the East was in a arms race; the West really just folded their hands. And I can’t blame them tbh.

Carolina Hurricanes New York Islanders St. Louis Blues
Some losers (with the Sens); Carolina was too quiet and they fell in my rankings - hell the damn Pens could be better favourites. The Islanders are drinking Mr. Louis’ “KOOL-AID”. Like it’s abysmal what is going on - and so many media/ surrounding members just are ****ing guzzling the bull**** that Lou and Trotz are feeding them and they’re spewing some just asinine **** on Twitter. The Blues got fleeced by Stevie Y. There’s yer’ L.

Minnesota Wild San Jose Sharks Anaheim Ducks
I really like the moves these three teams made. Yeah the Wilds TDL wasn’t as good as some people say; but I like their choices to come out of the west more than most west teams. The Sharks didn’t fumble their Middleton trade; I hope Middleton has an awesome career but man I really hope Kaapo does well in teal cause we need a young goalie with talent. And Anaheim just is building a juggernaut.

WHICH; brings me back to one of my favourites hobbies.

Trashing the Oilers.

Edmonton Oilers

I get it; I completely get and I even said it. It was not worth spending this TDL - if you couldn’t find the right deals. But using Anaheim as a premium example. The Oilers (IMO) have wasted another year of McDrai…. Another. Year. Wasted. And now; ANAHEIM, WHO IS ALREADY A GOOD TEAM - is transitioning out of their rebuild; while still holding LITERALLY DOZENS of picks and prospects. I mean EDM is gonna try and win next year I guess, but I’ve said it before, you have so many teams transitioning out of rebuilds soon (DET, CBJ, LA, ANA, OTT, etc). And Anaheim is in your division with Calgary. Like EDM is expecting to do well this year (they won’t IMO), and now they’re gonna expect to improve for next year come draft/ offseason. But like…. did Holland not see how brutal the Pacific was projecting to be? And it’s been true. He should have loaded up a long time ago. Kulaks a fine add but, I just don’t see enough being done for Connor or Leon to warrant any faith. Kane and Hyman are gonna have to perform and EDM could actually win their first round if they don’t pull Calgary. EDM’s run is contingent on not facing Calgary or the Avs imo. If they can do that; if Avs choke and the Calgary choke just as hard, then maybe EDM pulls Minny (who’s still quite good), they may go deep. But the cards are not in their hand. They’re playing a game of chance. And I just don’t like playing games with careers of two generational talents.

Calgarys dressing room got presents - the Oilers dressing room got question marks and Kane (which obviously Kane was always going to be a good add). But still, question marks.

The points were always going to be there, the guy can put the puck in the net. But I would caution resigning him and especially long term, he is having a negative impact on his teammates and the Oilers are not good with him on the ice at 5-on-5.
